Review: I'm mainly a Mil-Sim player (Time wars, NvsS, D-Day etc.), and for my style of play, this gun is PERFECT! After almost four days of use, about 8 hours a day, didnt chop a single ball.

Good accuracy, even with standard barrel managed to longball someone from the other end of the woodsball field!

Easy to adjust the velocity, simply insert Allen key and twist, no screwing around (literally!)

Handy compartment in the back of the stock, good for antifog, allen keys, Small snack etc...

Easy to replace the barrel for anything that'll fit an A5 or BT-4, very useful incase you need to change for something shorter for speedball/hyperball

Only problem is the sight cant be used when you have a mask on, but hey its only paintball, you can judge your shots by where they're landing!

Conclusion: if i somehow damage this gun (AND I HOPE I DONT!) i'll definately buy another instead of an A5. Its reliable, comfortable, easy to use right from the start. all in all,PERFECT FOR MILSIM AND WOODSBALL! and if you buy a shorter barrel, very good for speedball
10 out of 10
