Review: Ok so i purchased this marker because i saw it and i said "150 for a tactical marker? Not bad!" so i fire a few shots just to check it out and it was "ok" then i take it apart to oil it up for the next day and BOOM! I was expecting something like a spyder maybe a little different (never owned or maintained a tippmann prior) and did i get a surprise! it was like brain surgery! from the moment i opened it to the moment i got it put back together and to function properly with all the pieces in the right places it took no less than 3 hours!

After i got it together i slid the chamber a few times to let the oil slick it down then set it aside for the next day. The next day i noticed a drastic improvement (due to the oil i suppose). The moment i stepped onto the field with the gun people were already cringing in fear and looking at my piece with awe. During the game i noticed various things about the gun. it dose not chop paint no matter how hard you may try. It's accurate (i have used 98's before and they are a "pray and spray" weapon in my opinion.) and i like it.

What i noticed on the down side and a serious flaw in my eyes is this gun has a sticky trigger. When firing fast the rigger sticks just far enough back that you can't pull it again. In the middle of a firefight you can imagine how bad this can be. the gun is heavy (heavy compared to most) but it's a tactical gun so what can you expect? The standard barrel shroud is made of some cheaper plastic so i would recommend an upgrade unless you want it broken.
Conclusion: All in all i give this product a 9 because it's so difficult to take apart but when you do get it cleaned and put back together it was worth every hour you spent on it. the accuracy of a spyder built into the sturdy and dependable frame of a tippmann. This is one great gun!
