Review: I've used this marker for one year now. I'm happy with the gun. I've shot many different types of paint through it, and not many breaks. The accuracy of the barrel is ok, but a nice aftermarket barrel will probably improve it. I play woodsball, and the gun can take a beating. That's why they built it. That's why I bought it! I guess that's were the weight issue can come into play. I'm sure part of the guns strength comes from the aluminum die cast receivers. This is what makes the gun so strong. For that I can look past the weight issue. Like many I read a lot of reviews before I bought this gun. I like that it came with an improved barrel over a custom 98, it also comes with a drop forward to reposition the tank and distribute the weight better. Has a double trigger which gives it a good feel. Comes with A.C.T. (anti chop technology) helps stop paintball chops. These upgrades are probably what your going to buy anyway. So I decided to get it right off the hop. If money is an issue then go with a custom 98 and save a few bucks. You'll eventually buy this stuff anyway. The gun can be a bit tricky taking apart, but once you get the hang of it it's not an issue. In the end after one year of play with this gun iv'e had no problems, and has not let me down in the heat of battle.
Conclusion: This is a good marker for anyone looking for quality and reliablity. If your looking for a no fuss no muss gun, and like to play woodsball this is it. You'll have many years of fun palying with this gun with low maintenance. It has tons of upgrades and do it yourself mods that will allow you to personalize your gun, and won't break your wallet. I give it a 9 nothing is perfect.....oh except GOD!
