Experience:

Products Used:
i dont think i've ever seen another marker like this let alone used one.
Marker Setup: sd p90, q-loader, remote, tasco red dot
Recommended
Upgrades:
q-loader is a must
Strengths: Super low profile, unique, light, quiet
Weaknesses: Maintience, cramped(p90's are realy small)
Review: I got one of these last march, sent out an old ion and it came back as this sexy little thing. the best things about the sd p90 are,
1. your never, ever gunna see another player running around your local field with one of these. from what i understand each one is made by hand, so there'll never be many out there.
2. lowest profile ever. for those of you who play with tourny guns, grab your smallest marker,and take off the hopper, and the barrel, and your still gunna present a larger target than this thing(assuming you set up your p90 like mine).
3. this is about the quietest marker i've ever shot. you could compaire the sound of dry fireing most other markers into a pillow(i've actualy made a side by side comparison on that one)
4. super convenient battery access
5. the look of envy i get from all the mil-simmers who spent a grand on an a-5 that looks just like the one next to it :P

now for the weaknesses/flaws(there are alot of these)
1.this marker is constructed useing alot of parts that were not origonaly ment for the paintball gun that gets put in.this means that usualy simple tasks like cleaning your barrel cant turn into a 15 min disasembly/cleaning/re-assembly.(to clarify, the barrel partialy holds the trigger in place, so when you take out the barrel you need to be very carefull or the trigger assem will fly apart)
2.the airsoft body used is a little on the fragile side. havent broke mine yet,
but a few spots along the body are showing stress lines
3. the regulator is held in place by a metal strap around the top. on one occasion this acoualy let to it flying out of my marker while i was chronoing, because i unscrewed it without noticing(dumb i know, but i thought i should mention it)
4.this might not happen to all of them, but the conversion job on mine was kinda sloppy.
the body needs to be cut in several places to alow for the ion inside. as far as i can tell the cuts were done with a box cutter for the most part. except for the one which was burned out? this was easy enuff to clean up, but still annoying
Conclusion: Despite all the draw backs, i've made this my primary marker(for the woods at least) as long as your willing to deal with some slightly annoying cleanig requirements and you dont intend to smash it off a tree or something, this thing is a realy good marker. Small quick , and soooo pritty. It'll need a bit more love off the field than most markers, but it'll make up for it on the field. I think a seven is fair
