I personally would recommend a better barrel. The stock one is not accurate. and you need to use HPA. also an electric hopper really is a need because of the speed of this gun. GET THE ULT TRIGGER PULL KIT!!! Its so sweet.
So I got this gun about three weeks ago after deciding I needed some variety. I have been playing stock class for like two years and as fun as that is, I really wanted something that I could lay some paint down with and still maintain the lightness and accuracy I get from my phantom. I read every forum and review google could muster on this product before I ordered it. Upon recieving it (three weeks later as they were on backorder) i read the manual thoroughly as usual, gassed it up and filled the hopper to go play around in my back yard.
Shooting this gun right out of the box was ok. I wasnt impressed though. after around half a hopper I went inside to check out the mini cd that comes with the marker, very cool. I learned the tuning procedure by heart and went to work. This process takes some guess and check work and only like 15 minutes. I went back outside and found out what this little baby could do after my tweaking.
With my cocker threaded j&j i was lighting up a one foot square box at about 150 ft with no problem. with the trigger properly tuned, I would say I was walking around 12 to 13 balls per second estimated. And I just came off shooting stock!!! The ULT trigger and way this marker operates just allows you to shoot faster than you could with any other mechanical marker that at least ive used. keep in mind you have to do some work to get this thing to walk. Its not like shooting an electro that you can pick up and instantly do 25 bps on. this is MECH people. and no, it is not full auto.
This thing also does not chop. ever. and if one happens to break going through my j&j the next ball cleans the barrel out. I still carry a squeegie on the field tho because of those less fortunate who have to worry about ballbreaks.
Field stripping could not be easier with this marker. one thumb screw and its apart.
I can't stress enough how quiet this thing is. I built a silencer for a friend of mines 98c and this thing makes half the noise his tippy does.
I have used this in an actual day of play. it worked flawlessly. i thought that i would have to really reconfigure my gameplay from using a phantom, but as it turns out, no I dont. This is so small and light that it is so easy to maintain a really tight fast game style. Its so light i can still snap shoot when I want to. I scored many a kill that day.
also, it is worth mentioning that my tac is smaller than the one in the picture. I think AGD may have changed the tac body rail to make a less blocky looking gun. mine is definately more streamlined though. I am sure this also saves on weight and gives you a slightly smaller profile.
All in all, a perfect product. The tuning period does not even bother me since it allowed me to play around inside my gun to get to know how it works. I do this to every gun. But in conclusion, if you want a light, fast, reliable, and looks drop dead sexy, get this now. you can't possible regret it. this marker is perfect. a 10 in my book.
10 out of 10
