Review: For the price $200 this is a great marker. It comes stock with a freak barrel and firebolt. The trigger is nice, doesnt wobble at all but is kinda wierd because of the magnets it uses. Right when you first touch the trigger it is hard to pull (when your walking it that is) because the magnets are close together, but halfway throught the trigger stroke it gets sooo much lighter, this is not bad its just awkward untill you get used to it. the feedneck just sucks. Its got 2 orings inside that are supposed to hold your hopper in place, that is if you ever manage to get it in there in the first place. It took like a full 2 min to get my egg 3 in there the first time and the second time the top oring broke and my hopper would not stay in at all. Luckly i had heard that the feedneck was bad and ordered a clamping one with my gun. The bore insert the freak comes with is a .693 and its absolutley massive and waay to big for the premium grade paint i normally play with so it chopped for a while before i got a new insert. The body looks awsome (mines blue/silver) but after a while the rubber starts to peel and looks like crap. Its not the lightest marker out there but its not really that heavy either. if you want to make it lighter put a plastic ion body on it. My friend did this with his he put a black ion body silver feed neck, black freak with silver tip, and a silver cp trigger and ASA, and black SP pro grips. it looked freakin SWEET!! Almost as cool and mine and it wieghed a lot less. The stock reg is decent i wouldnt go spenging $90 on a new one but an empire detonator reg would be a nice cheap upgrade also ($15). Overall great gun
Conclusion: Overall this is a good gun for entry to mid level players or even a backup gun for pros. The price is awsome the looks are awsome the trigger is ok and the barrel and bolt are great for being stock. Buy this now
