Review: I got this gun for X-mas for $190 after tax at my local shop. It takes ION/Impulse neck threads so off the bat i put my old ion's check-it neck on there (i personally just dont like/trust twist-lock feednecks). And The Blitz comes stock with a dovetail, so i put my ions old Check-It on/off on there as well.

I have shot this gun in my backyard, and when to the field twice these last two weeks. I have put about 2 1/2 to 3 cases worth of paint through this gun already and have not had a single break. The eyes work flawlessy, and haven't had any barrel breaks either. This is especially impressive since i have only run CO2 on this gun so far, shooting cheap field paint and 2nds.

(Edit: My brother was shooting yesterday in the backyard while i was away from home, and he says there was a break in the gun, but he thinks it was just paint that broke in the hopper.)

The stock barrel is pretty decent, but could be improved upon. I personally like these type of triggers, but it does feel a little heavy... wish it was milled out more. Good thing about it is that it's 3 way adjustable, so i have it exactly to my liking :) The reg' does whats expected when using CO2, it has almost a 20+/- spread in velocity at the ranges. Have yet to use Compress Air, so i will update when i do.

The gun comes with Semi-Auto, PSP Ramp, CFOA Ramp, and Millenium Ramp. The gun is capped at 20BPS stock, and i dont know of any aftermarket boards for it. It has easy to use controls (two buttons on the spine, skip through 4 colors for four modes). Top one turns gun on, buttom one turns safety on/off. When safety is off, top button turns eye on/off. Hold bottom button to go to shooting modes, then press it to cycle through modes. When you turn off the gun, it saves the last mode you used.

Easy to clean as heck! I hated having to take apart my ION, and dealing with the air hoses to clean it out. This is just like most Spyders and Open-Bolt, Top Cocking markers. Pull top-pin to slide out the Delrin Bolt, unscrew velocity adjustor with A-Wrench until adjustor cap starts unscrewing (you can then hand loosen this until internals slide out, they do have tension though due to velocity spring). Slide out the internals, clean everything off, lube striker o-ring and replace.
Conclusion: Pretty good gun overall, good gun for under $200... runs both of CO2/HPA. Easy to clean and maintain (which i love), decently fast gun (not many walk-ons shoot faster than 20BPS, or need to). Only things i say need changing are barrel, drop or on-off, reg' if you want to, and feedneck if you want to.

Overall good gun.
