Review: First things first. If you ever hold one of these and get to shoot it, you WILL walk away either owning one or wanting to buy one. They are by far the sweetest gun I have EVER shot. This includes all forms of EGOs, DMs, Angels and Shockers.

For looks:

I think it looks nice. Everyone else that I play with thinks the same way. The milling and annodizing job is second to none. If you go to a different field than you usually do, everyone asks if it is an ego, and I reply, "It eats EGOs for lunch!"

Performance:

It shoots as fast as you can possibly want or need to shoot. I can get about 16bps in semi, pretty good for an old fart like me.(I'm only 30 but my Dr. says my knees are 75) It is unbelievable to see this thing on 25bps ramping. You could really hurt someone with that much paint being put in the same spot. And I mean the SAME spot. If you use good paint, it puts the ball exactly where you point it. I also like the distinct sound signature it has. Reminds me of an old 'cocker. Pretty quiet with a thut, instead of a pop. Might be the venturi holes in the bolt.

Maint/Cleaning:

As SIMPLE As It gets..................

1/4 turn of the back screw, pull the bolt pin, and everything slides out for cleaning. That easy. Wipe it off, slide your cleaning stick down the tubes, re-lube the metal parts (not the bolt) with shocker lube, and put it back together. If you do it once or twice, you could easily do all of this in under a minute and a half and do a good job at the same time.

Reliability:

I have had it about 3 months with ZERO issues. I have put about 16-20 cases through it in that time with no problems. I did break a ball in the barrel, but it was way too cold to even be playing paintball so it's not the gun's fault.
Conclusion: I sold my Shocker NXT, Ego 7 and kept this. What else do I need to say?

I have been playing the game since the days of the Splatmaster and I have never came across a gun that I like more.

I say go buy one before Dangerous Power realizes they should be selling these for $700 or more. AND, if you are on an even tighter budget, get the F7. It's exactly the same with a different milling job and slightly longer bolt.
