Products Used:
SP Ion, Dragun TES - Similar
Marker Setup: Now I use the SP-1. I have a mini-Mag flashlight, 48ci/3000psi HPA tank, Revolution 18V loader.
Barrel is short. A nice barrel kit would be nice. Also, a stock adds a lot to the looks of this marker.
Strengths: Reliabilty, no chops, quiet and refined, consistency
Weaknesses: Flashlight hole too wide, battery loose inside
Review: I purchased this gun a few weeks ago and had the opportunity to play with it this weekend. I was very surprised how smooth and consistent this marker is. My step-son has an Ion and I actually prefer the feel of this gun! I think its the woodsball player inside me wanting to come out!!! Anyway, the gun shoots very consistently and I have yet to chop a ball; and I have shot various brands of paint through it. The barrel is extremely short and I wonder if that affects the accuracy to some degree. This gun does hit the target but not as consistently as I would like. But, I guess thats why they sell aftermarket barrels. This is a very stable gun. It does not kick like my Dragun and I do not get fatigued using it like I did with my old blowback markers. I'll keep my TES because its not worth anything to sell it. However, this gun will be my "main" weapon of choice from now on. BTW - I won the first game I played with it by firing into small holes in bunkers and hitting targets my teammates could not with their blowback semis. For the $150 pricetag of this marker, there really is no better choice for the entry level to intermediate player. Happy hunting!
Conclusion: Markers have come a long way over the years! This marker is an example of that. If my Dragun is a Camaro, the SP-1 is a BMW M3; refined and exciting! Go get it!
