Review: It's important to note that if you plan on buying this gun, you have to invest in:

1.A new barrel
2.An electronic hopper (even for semi)
3.A custom feedneck (marker comes with ridiculous plastic elbow)

With those three upgrades, this gun dominates woods ball. It's consistent, reliable, and shoves tons of paint down the field. It will make many opponents incapable or unwilling to trade balls with you. Period.

The gun itself is sturdy, yet heavy which may bother some players. It's an aggressive sounding gun, very loud, so people are going to know you're around. It even kicks a little.:)

On the down size, it's prone to ball breakage during fully automatic, even with the upgrades I've put on this gun. This may be due to my stock ball detent, or rather my use of c02, but it is telling that this gun surely won't shoot full-auto out of the box, and it's likely not to do so well with the upgrades I've installed either. If you're buying this gun for full auto, I'm not sure if I'd recommend it. If you use full auto only when your in a bind or don't mind a few ball breaks here and there, then this is your gun. I'll update my review when I try the new detent and install HPA.
Conclusion: Overall, I'm very happy with this gun. If a gun were Han Solo, this would be it. It's a little rowdy but definitely gets the job done.
