Review: I received the gun as a present from a friend who didn't know markers, so i was a bit worried at first. when i opened the box i was a bit shocked, it looked amazing, and though the blue finish on it was a bit offsetting at first, it's grown on me.

first taking the gun out, i was skeptical, had some problems with it turned all the way up it still wouldn't shoot above 250ish, yet mid game it chronoed at well into the 300's. however, it was an amazing gun for being full stock at the time. deadly accurate at 30+ yards with only 1 out of 20 shots being more then 2 feet off it's mark. only blew up 1 ball in the barrel, which was amazing to me given it was a standard gravity fed hopper.

after some upgrades, including 16" longbow barrel and revolution hopper, i took it out again. still had the chrono issues, thinking of a new spring kit. overall though, i was pushing 15 bps without a single shred ball, could have gone higher if i put it on auto. the new barrel out preformed the stock 10 fold, reaching out over 60 yards with very little accuracy problems.
Conclusion: Final thoughts:
This gun is a great gun for the price, it fires well, the LCD trigger is amazing, and it looks good to boot. If you're looking for an entry level gun for comp, I'd highly suggest this gun.
