Review: I love this gun and all of my friends are jealous. At 20 bps this things eats through balls like a rat through cheese. I had to invest in a larger better hopper to keep up with it. With no mod for a Q loader available yet my evolution velocity is working out great. I heard it was gonna be an air hog so i put the Mr. T bolt 5 minutes after i got it home. So far air consumpiton has been great. Seems better than my BT-4. I love that the stock is not only colapesable but removable. It also has four rails and even two of those are removalbe. The folding foregrip is great. With the stock barrel this gun is pretty accurate and has good range. I ave put four cases of paint through it and have not had one break yet. Even though this is one of the lightest woodsball guns I still removed both siderails, foregrip and added a 14 inch Proto barrel lighter than the stock one. My biggest surprise with this marker is how quite it is. With the Proto barrel this thing is no louder than a whisper. I just got an Aex for it witch im sure will be louder but should be more accurate.
Ok, the bad.
The first thing everyone notices is that the trigger feels really wierd. I dont know exactly how to explaint it but i dont like it. The fire modes are very customizable (if thats really a word) but a little complicated. I only play woodsball with heavy camo and the power indecator is a big bright blinking light on the side of the gun. So far no one has said that they have seen it but i get nervous trying to hide in a full ghillie suit with a big red blinking light. I feel like a christmas tree. As everyone else has said to get the feed neck off and on is a little tricky but i hope to only have to do that once at the start of the day and then again at the end. My biggest complaint and hopefully someone can explain this to me is that when set to full auto you still have to fire three safety shots in quck succesion to achive full auto. I think this would be a good feature on markers that you have to take apart to change the rate of fire but on one with a selector switch I think full auto should be just that. Lastly unlike the X7 it cannot use C02. Copressed air only.
Conclusion: This marker fits my needs and wants better than any other gun i have used or seen. BT has put out and excellent product. I dont reccomend this gun to anyone because I want to be the only one with it.

i dont see why you say only nitro/ compressed air is a bad thing.. CO2 is really bad in winter and it dosnt shoot as far as compressed air

The 3 balls in quick succession before achieving full auto is to make it tourney legal. This marker is a mini in a sick milsim body, so it still performs like a tourney marker, and therefore needs to have tourney legal modes.
