Stock Barrel if your a perfectionist like me.
I was thinking about getting a new gun, a more efficient one, because my shocker is a gas hog, although I still love it and own it, I needed a gun that could shoot all the paint my pack could carry. So I started saving up for an EGO8, then my buddy told me to get a bob long gun, so I looked into the Vice, then I thought, "wow I can pay 1250 bux for a gun that gets 1850 shots per tank, or I can pay 750 and get a gun that gets 2000 shots per tank" and seeing that they use the same technology, and one is better than the other and costs less. Which do you think the better deal is? Yep, the Vice.
So I ordered one, got it in 3 days later, and I aired it up and dryfired a bit, I was smacked in the face with very little kick, and amazing efficiency.
So today I took it to my local field, set my stuff up, and went to the chrono area. Just like any new gun the velocity was all over the place, jumping from 270 300 257 274. So I said "well this is normal" so I go and start playing and WOW! This thing shoots bunnies! It was the most quiet poppet valve I have ever heard. Much quieter than the EGO. I played with it all day, filled up 1 time, and shot a whole case. I was amazed! It's very fast, efficient, light, and just an all around amazing gun. Comes stock with a Q-Lock and a Tadao. Big plus there.
So the final word is, this gun is amazing. It is everything a Paintball gun should be, at half the price of the competition, and as being a previous/current owner and have used many High End guns, I can easily say that the new Vice Intimidator is right up there with the best, and at a price that will make you smile. I honestly chose the Vice over an EGO because with a high end gun like the EGO or a DM, half the price is the company name. So get a Vice. It is the best gun out there in my opinion. No joke, I have never in my life used a better gun. EVER. Vice FTW! This think should score 10000, but since the rating scale topps out at 10, I guess that will have to do.
