Review: ========
The good

Efficiency: This gun has great efficiency i never have to fill up after a heavy game (with a 70/45) but i do go and top it off

Speed: is great 17 balls per second? who needs more than that?

Weight: this gun is lighter than most lower, high end guns i've used

Kick: this gun had a bit of kick with the stock bolt, but nothing to ruin your experiance. Also i have recently installed a techt l7 bolt and i get better efficiency and no kick.

Reliability: This gun has never failed me yet, though there were some frustrating times i got through them but they weren't on the field

Price: I got mine for $200 on sale and it was well worth it, i would have paid much more for this gun if i had

The bad

Feed neck: the stock feed neck is pretty crummy , in my opinion, it is ok until you break a feed neck oring. the feed neck should be one of the first upgrades u get

macro line: the stock macro line is kinda annoying by causing leaks and then you need to move it around by the fittings to get it to stop, i believe this is caused by the diameter being a bit smaller than regular macro line. btw this IS NOT a major issue
Conclusion: I recommend this for all players beginning or advanced. if you have any questions or comments post a comment... or pm me thanks. also if you could, plz pm me (or post a comment) so i can fix any problems before you post a dispute.
