4 years
Products Used:
Vice, cyborg, ego, promaster, timmy, aka, angel and all poppets marker.
Marker Setup: I have to many to list.
nothing so far.
Strengths: Accuracy, light, trigger, efficiency technology.
Weaknesses: The back has a squarish frame. but still good.
Review: As I have use this product each and everyday, I grew to love this marker. It seems the ALIEN INDEPENDENCE has a leap of improvement and great engineering has put on this marker. The marker does not give its full credit how great it performs. Maybe this is due to lack of commercial.

The body is very sleek looking, with a spike on the end of the bolt, similar to my traded ego 07, with a slightly bigger ram housing because it is detachable. It can be better on out side machining also.

- The ram is detachable for ease of maintenance.
- Comparing to any other guns, this has the biggest air inlet to the Solenoid, than any marker I have seen, which even to ego 09 striving as hard to make the flow of air to solenoid as much, with no contest by far alien has the most.
- The regulator is same stack shims as the cp reg. I weigh the reg. it is light and also very consistent. Need a little break in, approximately 50 balls only- as I have experience on my marker.
- The bolt is made out of delrin, and a black rubber blocks more than half part where the air exhaust. theorizing that ball will spin backwards for a flatter shot, shooting from the bottom. This is mostly what alien commercializes. I use to play table tennis, its true a back spins gives the ball a straighter ball. I have yet to test this on my alien.
- Also the bolt rubber prevents the paintball from rolling backwards, same as the cure bolts. I have first seen this long time ago from deadlywind that had made the bolts for the ions preventing it to move backwards to avoid stack chopping paintballs.
- The marker is very accurate, the fact that I would eliminate the whole entire walk ons with my 50 paintball hopper.
- The signature sound of the marker is quieter than any ego I have used, similar sound signature to a vice.
- The trigger, I am not fan of a critical trigger, but this trigger is amazing. I promised you that you will love this trigger better than the A1 fly or my 09 ego I have both.
- The detents have it advantages and disadvantage. Detents would be replace faster that the normal round detents. The alien detents have two spikes from each side. The advantage I can see is that, it is more reball friendly than rounds detents. You just have to replace it a lot more.
- Eyes, it works perfect, same as any high end markers, I still have to break a ball in it. NO Breaks so far.
- Speed, it can cycle as faster than any finger pull out there..
- Chrono - When airing the marker as manual stated to push the bolt forward to prevent spikes, which may damage solenoid. This needs to be done to have space for air to move in.
- When first airing the marker, I found that it tends to spike, but after 10 shot, it will stabilize it self. So when you first come in to chrono, make sure you shoot ten shots and then chrono.
- chrono register 275 274 276 275 273, 275 depending also how good is your paintballs is. I was using a in house crap paintballs when this registered, still good.
- I have the stock frame that came in when you buy the cheapest package, it nice to hold, but it could be much better. Comparing with ego 09 frame again, ego has it by far better ergonomics. However, I found that they are making the back of the marker frame rounder for alien 09. This is good news. Hopefully, they make it like UL frame, which is the best of all time.
- You got to know, the alien frame is still much better to hold than my karni, shocker, etek and others.
- The shooting controls are user friendly, so even for dummies can be easily fine tuned. turn on, hold to turn off, green there is ball registered, red no ball on barrel. psp, ramp, semi, uncapped. pressonce button, turn off eyes. only one button outside the frame.
- Weight, very light marker. About 2 ounces heavier than ego 09, put a cp shorty and they will wiegh the same. Put a stiffi barrel and it will weigh less.
- Efficiency, I was hoping it will be same efficient on air as vice or aka, but who am I kidding. Efficiency is about same efficient as any ego. About 1700+ full 68/4500 after break in.
- I have seen no drop shots.
- KICK.. kicks are...
Alien = Ego 09,
Alien > A1 fly
Alien > droid, dms, spooly
Alien = Vice, Alien = Cyborg.
> means greater kick.
= means equal, same
Conclusion: Conclusions:
The marker is very outstanding. My entire marker now stays on my closet, with the exceptions of phantom pump. I see ego 09 and I see alien, I will pick alien. Why? Quieter, seems more accurate, far way better trigger pull, no drop shot and personal preference. Do not get me wrong. 09 Ego is really outstanding marker, and better outside machining, better ergonomics frame but My ego 09 stays in the bag. I am still amaze why alien marker is not more recognized. I should have even compared this to ego 08 but I do not have it.
The great thing about this marker, it is cheap. Buy a dm, ego, cyborg, and droid, you get what you pay for. Buy an alien, vice or a closer, you get more what you pay for.
