Review: So I bought my Delta because I wanted to get into wood and scenario paintball. I loved it when I took it to the paintball field for the first time. Although it was very windy and cold that day but it was the last day of the year it was going to be open so I had to go. So first about the strengths....

Accuracy-
I first tested the marker the day I got it. I was extremely curious about the BT apex barrel so I didn't even try the marker out with the stock barrel. When using the apex barrel I tried the left hook, right hook, and trajectory shots. I wasn't to impressed with the left and right hook shots but was very happy about the trajectory shots. It really made it shoot further then I thought. I decided to test its accuracy so I shot a tree from 77 feet away and was hitting in a 12 inch circle almost every hit. I was pretty impressed. Also it was kind of windy too. But when I took it to the field when it was really windy it was doing fine for the first half of the day. I couldn't figure out what why all of a sudden it wasn't as accurate. I only had one paintball break in the barrel but I think it was the paint, not the marker. So I cleaned it out, and when I got home I took the apex barrel apart to make sure I got all the paint out and I noticed a ring inside was busted, that was what was causing the inaccuracy. It wasn't the marker. Also latter tried the stock barrel and had no problems. Was just about as accurate just not quite as long range.

Reliablilty-
So far haven't had any trouble with the marker itself.

Looks-
I like the looks of the stock BT delta. Also you can change looks on it too.

Chopping Paint-
I so far have not had it chop paint at all. And I have only had one paintball bust in the barrel but I think that it is because it was cheap paint.

Now for the weaknesses...

Pretty Heavy-
I think it is a little heavy especially with my 72ci compressed air tank. So during the longer woodsball and scenario games your arms will get tired unless if you get a remote coil. Unless if your just a beast and I'm not! I tried the remote coil and loved it. It made it lighter and much easier to move with the marker. So I would definitly get a remote coil for it.

Re-oiling Bolt O-rings-
I was pretty hesitant on taking the marker apart for re-oiling the o-rings. Im not gonna lie, im not a paintball genius and I was worried about screwing something up in the process of re-oiling. The pain about it is that you have to take apart a lot of stuff just to get into the marker. On my piranha all I had to do was take out the field strip pin and just pull out the whole bolt and hammer assembly. Then just oil and put it right back in. It would take maybe 2 minutes at max. But with the BT Delta it took much longer and was a pain. But it will get easier with practice.

Manual-
Personally I think this manual is a joke. It didn't help me at all in getting into the marker to re-oil the bolt o-rings and it just is difficult and confusing. It really would be confusing to the kids who don't know much about paintball markers. I don't like the manual at all. My piranha manual actually goes step by step with pictures to help in cleaning and many other things with the marker. It makes it easier and faster.
Conclusion: So for the conclusion I would have to say the BT Delta is a great marker. The only major things that are bad about it is the cleaning, and weight but both are not serious enough issues to degrade the marker. It is great and a fun marker. Would definitly recommend to any and all woods and scenario paintballers.

PLEASE TELL ME IF YOU DISAGREE WITH MY REVIEW AND WHY AND TELL IF THIS HELPS OR NOT.
