Review: I got this marker about a month ago and have put about a case through it with reballs and regular paintballs. When i first shot it i thought it felt great even while shooting at 13-15bps in semi. There really is no kick at all. I also shot it with reballs and they work beautifully with the F8.

Stock Barrel: The stock barrel is amazing. It is extremely light and extremely accurate. It reminds me of the Dye UL barrel.

Modes: People conplain about the highest setting being 25bps but it is actually really fast when you are holding the gun while shooting that fast. You might be suprised. There is something like 8 modes on the stock board and it is really easy to change the modes even though it is all torny legal. You just have to open up the grip and change the dipswitches. There are no annoying flashing lighs that you have to cycle through to reach the one you want. I like the board a lot. (i dont know what is going to happen with the whole 13.3bps rules change though)

Speed: All i can say about the speed of this is WOW! I don't have the fastest fingers but with the crisp feel of every shot it is really easy to time your fingers just right so that you shoot your fastest. Even the stock trigger setting is really short so it doesn't take much effort getting up to high speeds.

Weight: There isn't much more to say about the weight of this other than 1.89lbs. This is one of the lighest guns out there.

Bolt: I though i would add this in the review because of how amazing it is. The bolt is sooooo easily removed and then you can just run a squeegie down the entire gun and barrel at the same time(if your squeegie is long enough) It is also very small. This cuts down on kick.

Price: $400-$450. Its by far the best gun in its price range.

Looks: This gun looks amazing. The little curvy part above the reg turns a lot of people off to this gun because they think it is fat but in person the curvy part isnt fat at all and actually makes it really nice to hold. The milling and the anno are perfect.

RAPS: This is probably the best on/off I have ever used. You just need to watch your fingers when you degas it because the lever comes forward extremely fast and even though it is small really hurts(I know first hand). It moves so well though and purges as you degas it.

Consistency: People say it gets really good consistency but i haven't had a chance to test it.

Efficiency: I have put almost a case worth of paint and reballs through it and still have 500ish psi. I think it's supposed to get around 1800 shots per 68/45.
Conclusion: Overall this gun is amazing and I don't have anything at all that is bad to say about it. Just go out and buy it. I got mine for $400 and it is a bazillion times better than a pmr or anything else in that area price wise.
