Review: I got this marker mostly for winter play when i will need to be cleaning out my marker more often, or as a loaner to people who dont want to lug around a tippmann. Its a simple design and the price makes me not worry too much about beating it up a bit. I have to admit im impressed by its performance out of the box. The barrel wasnt perfect, but it was light years ahead of anything i would have imagined for a marker of its price.

The feedneck isnt too bad. Atleast its more solid then the origional Ions. Im not too picky about feednecks though, as long as my loader doesnt shake im happy. Trigger has an odd, but smooth feel to it. I dont think i will be replacing it since i dont need another marker with a double trigger, if i need more firepower i wont be using this marker anyway. All in all, externally its a very nice marker.


Taking it apart is easy too, you can completely strip it in only a few minutes and put it back together no problems. For a newer person to electro its as easy as it can get. The battery is very loose though, when i opened the box i was actually worried the marker was broken because of how much rattle there was. I plan on just getting some foam tape to make it a little more snug. No eyes, but thats fine for the price, i would just recommend to have an aggitated feeder so you dont end up dry firing

When i used it the first time it was just to test it to make sure it funtioned properly and see what upgrades i might need. I chronoed to about 260 since it was cold and was shooting about 75-90 feet away at a tree 2 feet wide. The spead was easily within the ability to mark someone. My only comment was that i didnt like the feel without a stock. With my speedball markers its not as much of a problem because my grip is closer and if i need support i can use my tank, but i will def be getting a stock to help my stability when playing woodsball/scenario.

Conclusion: A good solid gun. I would def recommend this to anyone looking for a cheaper back up or who wants to get into paintball and buy an electro. Simple to maintain, decent out of the box, and im sure people will jump all over mod making for it in the next few months.
