Review: overall straight out of the box all stock its a great marker. but lets be realistic here. ive seen some other reviews that this gun keeps up with dye dm8s cmon now dont be that naive. a dm8 is in a league of its own and the price shows it. but i can honestly say with the upgrades i put on mine its fairly close to the performance as a dm8 but still not quite there. but lets talk about price.

my SLG after upgrades = $500
dm9 = $1400ish

all your spending is $500 dollars and your getting a gun thats almost comparable to a dm9. choice is easy.

all stock =$199 and it will perform better than a lot of high end markers out there as well.
Conclusion: Like I said on my review for the price you cant beat it. best bang for your buck. after the upgrades I put on it , it will clearly keep up with super high end markers at a fraction of the cost. the only reason why im giving it a 9 is because you need to upgrade it a bit. if it came from factory with a 2 piece 14" proto barrel, a clamping feedneck and a on/off it would easily get a 10. but im a bit picky when it comes to paintball guns. to someone just starting out its a perfect 10.

now stock straight out of the box it is still a incredible shooting marker. for $199 there is nothing out there that can touch it. this is a hidden gem which should cost $400.

i would highly recomend this marker to anyone and with a few tweaks and upgrades you got yourself a high end marker that keeps up with anything on the market quite easily and at a fraction of the cost.
