Review: Purchased from Wal-Mart as a backup gun or a loaner to a friend.

Broke it down to lube essential moving parts. The break down of bolt and striker is quite similar to the Spyder. Internal guts are plastic.

Re-assembled and test fired about 40 in the back yard, at about 50 feet.
Function was perfect. Accuracy was surprisingly good, at a slow rate of fire.
It is a pretty loud firing gun.

The next week when I did take it to the field as a loaner to a friend, it failed to function properly. One trigger pull would activate a series of rapid blows. Similar to when you run low on your air tank.

My tank however was full. I took the gun apart but could not see any issues with the internal rings. I tinkered with it for another 20 minutes or so, then had to call it quits.

It was refunded shortly thereafter.

I may have gotten the 1 bad lemon out of 50....but there's no greater crime for a paintball gun than to have a critical failure at the field.

Conclusion: I wanted to like this gun and thought it might be a treasure of a find,
but I couldn't recommend this gun based on the function.
I like the look of the gun, but was turned off by the plastic internals.

You didn't get the 1 bad lemon, this gun is giant POS. I think if someone has a Brass Eagle that works, its the one GOOD lemon (or cherry or whatever is good lol...)
