For the price I paid I feel like I got a good deal. The set up was good out of the box. Nice and accurate, a little loud, but unless I am playing my grandma, anyone can hear a marker go off if they are in range. And so what if I give away my position? This marker can hose paint with 99% of the competition you will come across.
Trigger is nice. Great range of adjustment. Stock is adjustable. Comes with a sight rail. Easy on the fly shift from simi to full auto. No three round burst, but that is not a big deal. Just burst the full auto. No eyes on full auto stinks. Be sure to Chrono before you play some outlaw ball, mine was over the 300fps standard. Grips are cheap junk. The screws will need threadlock. Be sure to catch those on the bottom especially.

As far as chopping goes, buy decent paint, keep the eyes on when shooting semi, and if you go full auto you HAVE to have a hopper that can keep up. When on the rare occasion that I do chop a ball, breaking down and cleaning is very easy between games. Get to know your marker before busting out on the paint field.

Gas is not an issue with this baby, 600 rounds per 20oz is no biggie, but keep a spare in your gear pack just in case because you can go through paint/gas like crazy if you are not careful.
The gun is versital. You can play point, or back up your buds on an assault. Of course this is not an ideal speedball marker but you're not reading this review with a speedball type gun in mind....are you?...

Spending the dough on the marker is just the begining. You will need a fast hopper, a pack to carry all that extra paint you will surely be shooting. A remote was a definate for me. It made life easier. The gun needs to have compressed air instead of C02 IMO. It will make your fps much more consistant....but you already knew that.

Overall for the price I paid I will rate this a 10. Of course you cant compare this to a high end marker. I can overlook the minor flaws with the preformance I get. In its class it gets a 9.5.....round it up.
Conclusion: If you are thinking of getting this marker stop being such an indecisive girly man! Put on your "big girl panties" and just go do it. If the wife/mom gives you lip, send me an email I teach "How to Handle Women" classes online.
This gun is the best thing to ever happen to me. I was like Ralphie off The Christmas story the day I got it. Day dreaming about popping bad guys. I even had it laying it on the bed beside me as I dozed off to sleep that night........not really..................... but seriously, yea I did....
10 out of 10
