Review: All in all I must say for the price ($20) it sure is pretty acceptable. I mean what do you expect for just $20. It's certainly far better and much safer than the Blade for its price range. At least it does not explode on the user during use (Blade).

It's a wonderfully small marker, easy to put away, it has simple workings, nothing about it is complex. It does what it does and thats ALL it does.

The only problems with the paintball marker I have noticed on repeated field tests is that the marker has a tendency to not fire at full distance, it constantly falls short due to CO2 leakage.

The other problem I noticed is that sometimes the CO2 port jams really badly. To the point if you want to remove a CO2 canister you must use pliers.

To defeat the problem however, simply use Paintball gun oil.
Of course you must ALWAYS oil up a weapon before and after use to keep it top-notch, no matter how cheap it is.

If you give the bad boy a good oiling It will do great!
Conclusion: If you're just starting to get into paintballing, get this thing instead of a blade!
5 out of 10
