Review: I took this gun out today for the first time. I had a very good experience with it, I shot about 500 balls during my short time in the woods without a single break. The trigger worked well and makes it very easy to rip off a good barrage of paintballs quickly. It is small compared to my Tippmann which makes it easier to stay tight behind small trees and things while still being able to lean out and get some shots off. Everything seemed to work flawlessly on the gun. The only real complaint i have is with the feedneck. It is a twist to tighten style and it seemed difficult to tighten enough to make me feel like the hopper was really on there. I would recommend getting a feedneck similar to the one on the 98 custom which is able to be tightened with an Allen wrench. I like that it is top cocking as opposed to my rodeo which is rear cocking. This makes it more compact and you don't have to worry about the bolt coming back and scratching your lens while you shoot. When i got home stripping the gun down for regular maintenance was easy. Just pull up on the cocking knob and undo one screw and almost everything inside slides right out to be wiped down and oiled. I love the looks of this gun and the matte black finish is great for woodsballers.
Conclusion: I would recommend this gun to anyone not trying to spend a fortune on equipment but still wants a gun that can send some serious paint down range,it is easy to maintain and reliable. Low pressure operation helps to prevent ball breaks. Eyes prevent chopping. Obviously you will need an electronic hopper to keep up with the speed and i would recommend an after market barrel as well. The stock barrel is not bad but i feel like my All American adds a little more accuracy and consistency to the gun overall.
