Review: I bought this back in 2002 for 100 bucks at my local paintball store. I think I bought the Progresseve with it but I can't remember it was five years ago so who knows. First time playing I loved the wieght of it, it was so much lighter than anything else I had used except the Spyder Compact 2000. The trigger pull is long put I got used to it and eventully was able to shoot reasonably fast for a mech-Spyder. After a while the plastic feed neck started to crack so I replaced it with Kapps non-adjustable feed neck. It made the gun less top heavy by lowering the hopper whitch helps when you play the sides like I do. After a while I noticed a Loud pinging sound every time I shot and after complaining about it to a few people I was told that it is because of running it on CO2. So I bought my brothers Pure Energy Compressed Air tank and problem solved. The accuracy and range is quite good if you have a good paint-to-barrel match. I prefer Marbs(Marbalizer) or Diablo Formula 13. I don't think I ever broke a SINGLE round when I had a good paint-to-barrel match. Do not lose the metric tourny volocity screw. I lost mine and the field I played at would not let me play witch makes sense now but was a pain then. The screw cost me five dollars for a four centimeter screw. So don't lose it or you'll have to pay.
Conclusion: I highly recommend it to anyone who is begining. It is solid and easy to clean and repair after you get compterable with taking it apart.
