Review: ok ive had this gun for about half a year now and i hate it with a passion.

PROS

Its pretty accurate stock. i went in my back yard and had about a 6in radius of hits from about 20 feet away. the trigger is amazing. i have a friend with a G7 fly and he says he would rather have my trigger.

CONS

the gun leaks from everywhere. i dont konw if its just my gun but when i fire a shot i feel air come out of the trigger, board, and sometimes asa. there is a little hole in the board that for some reason lets air out of it, and it lets out wayyyyy too much air. it feels like someone blowing through a straw as hard as they can.

now some people are going to say this is false, but trust me it isnt. the gun weighs too much to be a paintball gun. it feels like it is made of lead. just the gun itself(no barrel, hopper, or tank) weighs as much as my friends mini with the tank and hopper and barrel.

on top of all those things, the one thing tht puts me over the top is that sometimes it will randomly stop firing when you shoot over 5 bps. at first i thought it was because i was running out of air but i had about 1500 psi left. i took it into the shop and they told me to grease the bolt and out a new battery into it. after i did so it worked for about a roung then stoped working again. i finally just gave up and shot at like 1 bps.
Conclusion: If you want a gun that will last you about a day, this gun is for you. seriously though, if you are willing to pay 200 bucks for a gun id go for an slg or pmr or something else other that a smart parts gun.im giving this gun a 4 becayse its ok when it works, but it dosnt work that often.

First of all you're right about the puff of air coming through the grip mine does the same thing, but it only does it when I fire, it's not a leak. It's probably the air that pushes the bolt back and the air needs somewhere to go. Second its not a gas hog, I can get 900-1000 shots with my 72ci 3000psi. You might want to check your psi and volocity. I don't know about the gun stopping when you shoot, I haven't heard of them doing that, mine hasn't. Lastly, my gun doesn't seem that heavy to me its a little under 3 lbs., it's not the lightest gun in the world, but its not made of lead. I haven't had mine very long but have put at least 3000 rounds through it and I'm really happy with it. Good luck!

The air you feel is from the stock exaust valve, your supposed to feel that.

The air felt is from the exaust. If you have leaks, have your airsmith take a look at it and dont drop a sub par review untill you have real experence on a product.

Hi, i have found the problem you have. Your problem when your epiphany stops firing is because you have a low pressure presset, remember that the epiphany is a low pressure marker, but you must put a high pressure presset.

So to repair:

- Change your presset to a HIGH PRESSURE PRESSET. then all will be ok.

its not that heavy, air from the grip is just exhaust from inside the marker. Research the product before reviewing something again.

Dispute:
air is coming from exhaust valve on the bottom of your noid... gun is under 3lbs, and it was most likely your fault it got messed up in the first place. even though electropneumatic markers are low maintenace, they still require maintenance. You could have probably sent it back to smart parts, but you probably did something stupid to void your warranty... Please research before you post a biased review based on your own dumb actions...
