Review: Overall i have to say that i was impressed. This was a pretty decent gun, for BE that is. These guys were going for the tactical line, they made a gun that LOOKED tactical. The gun has a FAKE rail, cheesy designs on the side, a poorly designed barrelshroud/forgrip and a stacked tube design. the internal peices were poorly constructed and incredibly basic. The bottom line and receiver surprised me when it actually worked. However the gun was light and felt nice to hold good ergonomics. Accuracy wise the stock barrel shot decent grouping, about twice the size of my upgraded barrel (about a 4 foot diameter), but for that price level its ok.
The air was well regulated, shots were consistent powerwise.
When i stripped it i had to take the handle off to get the hamher back in, kind of annoyed me.
Big mistake on BE's part. the hopper. Why? hideous number one BIG target number 2.
All together it appears decent but it seems like its just going to fall apart.
Conclusion: Would I buy this gun? No.
Should you buy this gun? yes IF you just want to try out paintball for cheap and you want a beater gun that will be quickly replaced with something durable.

I believe you didn't read the instruction manual. It states that you have to actuate the trigger 3 times to get the hammer in position after field strip.
I have taken mine apart several times, and it goes back in position every time. I agree the insides are mostly plastic, but if one is patient, nothing should really break.
