Review: This was my first marker since my hiatus. It was a good entry(re-entry?) level marker and is easy to take care of. This marker is pretty simple to work on. I have had a few problems:

1. Bad cup seal in first marker. Exchanged it the same day and have not had any issues since

2. Chronographing. This thing was shooting super hot right out of the box. 340+ was the minimum I could get it down to with out clipping and finally replacing the spring.

I had pretty good experiance with the elbow that came with the marker. It lasted for a while. Maybe 2 months? You can get by with a gravity hopper on this marker but upgrade to some sort of power hopper soon. The first thing that I did was to put the j&j on it. That helped with the loudness of the marker.

Total addons: $254
j&j - $40
Palmers reg - $75
etrigger - $40
marker - $99


Conclusion: A good entry level marker to see if you will like paintball. This marker can become a great backup with a little money.

Agreed, excellent entry-level marker for much cheaper than a 98. Good Review.
