SA Warrior, Spyder Sonix or Victor(cant remember which one, a crappy rental), 98 Custom
J&J Ceramic 14" Barrel
BT4 CAR stock
BT Rip Clip
Tiberius Sight Riser
Oryx Red Dot Sight
J&J Apex Adapter
Definitly a new barrel, though the stock barrel isnt that bad.
A stock is also nice
Not an air hog
Military style mounting rails
Range with stock barrel isnt too good
I have had this marker for about about 3 years now, couldnt have made a better choice. Its cheap and really durable. It looks awesome even when its stock.
The stock barrel is a bit crappy, but I think all markers start out with bad barrels, it can shoot quite far and I havent had a break once with it (i used the stock barrel for about 2 months). Back when i bought the marker I was on a very tight budget but it seemed that this was the best bang for my buck, I havent needed to repair it once and its very reliable in the field. It is easy to strip if needed (oiling, repairs) and it is not difficult to find spare parts as some internals are interchangeable with the 98 Custom
Remember to buy a new barrel and you will have loads of fun with this marker, but if you dont have money for a barrel its also fine... the stock barrel works quite well.
It accepts A5 barrels and 98 custom stocks and there are quite a lot of mods available.. so its the best of both worlds.
I would highly recommend this marker, it costs less than say a 98 custom or A5 but it can be made lots better with the right mods.
I would also recommend a new barrel ASAP. though the stock barrel works ok.
the only reason I give it a 9 is because the barrel sucks and theres always room for improvement
9 out of 10

Great review!!! Very informative, nicely done. Only one thing I recognized in it though that I saw was wrong, but as long as its set on the same fps, it will shoot the same distance as any other marker, the barrel wont make a difference (unless of course you have a flatline or an apex tip on it!).
