Review: This gun is a steal at 400 dollars. It performs as well as all mid and some high end tourney guns, shaves off most of the functions (like game timer LCDs) that have no use in the woods, looks super-sweet without useless milsim mod crap (like a functionless magazine well . . . COUGHX7COUGH) and is lighter than any woodsball gun. Now, you could get an X7 for about a hundred less, pay 50 for a stock and 100 for an etrigger and still be stuck with a paint-blending cyclone feed and 5 extra pounds, or you could take this gun out of the box and hit 20 bps right away.

The ballistic nylon feels flimsy to the touch but holds up fairly well. The battery change makes my pee pee do funny things. The rate of fire is outstanding. It comes with a great manual and toolkit.

Be careful what barrell you use for it, not all fit the shroud. My J&J is a tight fit, but it works. The trigger pull could be smoother. Honestly, I would be fine with the extra weight of a metal trigger if it felt a little more put together. The stock will just barely accomadate a 68/4500 without a cover, but will not extend past the length of it, rendering it useless if you don't run a remote line. Standard mil-spec slings (the kind that mount on CAR stocks and such,) will not fit the miniscule sling loops on this gun. Try a small D-ring or something. And BREAK IT IN!!! Mine took about a case and a half of paint.

Conclusion: I love this gun! It's weaknesses are minor, and its innovations should be taken note of by other manufacturers. If you don't like the price, think what an X7 would cost for the same level of performance. Good Job, BT!
