As with most markers, i would get a barrel kit, I like to always have the Best Paint to Barrel match i can get my hands on.
Its a smart parts item (personal dislike for the company's customer service.)
I tested this Marker at a friends home, I assumed it would be comparable to other markers in the price range, Not to bad, but nothing amazing. I was suprised. For the price, this marker preforms. It is a soild, well built good looking marker. It is, in my opinion, The best option for a person just getting into the paintball setting. It is realativly low upkeep and should somthing go wrong plenty of shops have parts to provide a quick fix. Normally I would suggest sending a broken marker to the manufacuter, but after a terrible ordeal with an Impulse a few years ago, Never again. This marker lives up to the hype. It is one of the best entry level markers that can hold its own on the small tournament stage.
A great marker for the price. I have heard Ion horror stories, but those are few and far between. i wouldnt go trading my E-Cocker for one, but I would highly recommend this marker to a new player.
