SpecOps51 Friday, June 13th, 2008
Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
3 years
Products Used:
Tippmann A-5 (A-5 simply cannot compete with this gun)

Planet Eclipse Ego (better gun, but not by enough to justify 3 times as much money)
Marker Setup: Dangerous Power F8 Fusion, Halo B, 68ci/4500, CP reg
New reg may come in handy, you will have to have a very quality hopper on this gun, an agitated Viewloader hopper is not going to cut it.
Strengths: Value, this gun shoots similarly to guns that cost well over a grand.
Weaknesses: Its not quite as good as guns that cost four times as much (go figure)
Review: Okay for the record this gun is not the slickest sweetest shooting monster on the market. I have shot guns that are better than this gun, if not by much.

What makes this gun is the value. This gun is the slickest sweetest shooting monster for under a thousand dollars. The workmanship is fantastic, its accurate and fast as lightning. I have only shot through two cases but have yet to have any breaks. It will shoot every bit as fast as advertised and I have no doubt faster as soon as they get an aftermarket board out.

Its relatively quiet, certainly not the softest but not even close to the cannon that an A-5 is. Its light and sturdy, and impossibly easy to clean. Pull the bolt out of the back of the gun (by hand), clean the bolt off, the barrel, oil and reinsert bolt. Takes 10 seconds.

Clamping feedneck and the locking asa are sweet.

The stock barrel has thus far been more than good enough for me thus far.
Conclusion: At 450$ I stole this gun from georgia paintball, it is the best deal I have ever seen. If you are at all like me and would like to not get blown off the field by guys shooting 30bps out of ego's or timmy's but cannot afford one, this is what you need.

Of course if you have 1500$ just lying around and want to drop it on a gun that is marginally better than an F8 Fusion, be my guest.

All in all way to go DP. I hope you guys don't ever realize what your gun is worth.
10 out of 10
