possibly a bottom line kit. (quick release nozzle)
Quite accurate for being a pistol
Loading can be awkward especially when trying to do it quickly.
I plunked around with this gun using a few CO2 cartridges, but before I ever actually used it I got the bottom line kit, so keep that in mind while reading this review. I was really surprised at how accurate it shot with the tiny 1 inch(?) barrel.
The Tactical Holster doesn't properly hold the gun if you install the bottom line kit, which is annoying.
The Bottomline Kit is the ZX Bottom line kit.
The pistol is surprisingly heavy, and a bit big. Imagine a spyder TL, or spyder Classic body; this pistol is a bit bigger and heavier than that.
If you are serious about using a pistol, you are obviously going to want either extra loading tubes or extra magazines. I went with loading tubes, though the quick release magazines might be a bit faster with practice, they would be harder to carry around.
I had a very annoyingly hard time with the bottomline kit. There is a little brass piece that screws into the gun itself from the metal wire mesh, and I had 2 break! xtremez.com wouldn't send me another (though they (?)manufacture(?) for MilTec). Wanted me to buy a whole new bottomline kit for one little part! So I took my gun down and had it modded so that I could use a universal part, though they had to drill a larger hole on the gun itself.
Trying to ignore some of the company issues I had, this paintball pistol was pretty much what I was expecting. For many people it could be a bit bulky and for the weaker folks it would probably be too heavy to accurately wield with one hand. I'm going to give it a slightly better than "average" grade for accuracy, but not an excellent grade. If I get a chance to try out some other paintball pistols sometime I may change my ratings accordingly.
6 out of 10
