Review: Ok to start off with when i say "not factory made" it means it looks like each of these they make by hand because the drilling seems fresh on them.

I purchased the gun from (i forgot i can't mention the website!) (and it is a gen4 so its a little newer than the one in the picture) mine has a 6' barrel. The clip (that comes with purchase) holds 18 balls and it dose NOT double feed (to clip and hopper at same time) you have to change out the piece at the front and that requires you to take off the clip feed (4 screws) and one screw at the top on the rail as well. The clip feed has 2 ball detents and i have not had a double feed from it yet. However the hopper feed has only one detent and i am currently moding it to not dribble balls out on occasion. the detent dose unscrew itself every few shots but a small but of thread tape will fix that. The gun has the feel of a real gun. The frame itself seems to be spyder based.

Accuracy

Taking the gun out and firing i could get a 5' grouping at around 60-75 feet with my 6' barrel. I don't think you can explain this part unless you actually see it. My friends with me expressed their amazement along with me when they saw how accurate the gun was.

Reliable

I have chopped one ball so far with this gun (but as i said before i have had a problem with it double firing) out of a box of 2000 rounds. The only thing you need to make sure of is that it is cocked when you put your air in or it will start to leak out the barrel (something about some sear bolt someone was saying) if you have it cocked you will have no leak and can fired right away with no problems whatsoever. No problems with anything loose or seals or valves. Easy to clean.

Cost

The cost is a bit more than other markers but if you really want a real looking gun and not a cheap replica that everyone has then get it.

Rate of Fire

This gun could really do with an e trigger but maybe that is just me as i'm a fan of e's now. Able to fire fairly fast but without a double trigger it is limited.



Conclusion: This gun may not be the notorious tippmann that you can drop from a plane into a pool of molten lava and after 5 years pick up and shoot it but it is a reliable gun if you care for it. And if your a milsim player this is a must that no other company on the market can touch so far.
