Review: This is a sweet marker for beginners and pros alike;
I recommend it highly for semis or for pump, because it performs quite nicely
if you spend a bit on upgrades, it can outshoot common mid-class markers and some higher class ones such as:
Ion
Impulse
VS1, VS2, VS3
Pretty much all Tippmans unless you spend a LOT upgradin them
etc

The main weakness of this marker is that the feedneck is hot-pressed on. This prevents any feednecks from being installed except the Trinity one which is extremely hard to find. There are a lot of hoppers that won't fit this hopper, including: All empire hoppers, most Halo hoppers, and probably a few more. (Believe me; i've tried these...)
I'm not sure whether or not the electric ViewLoader hoppers work on this marker, but i've heard that at least some do
i'd stick with a gravity feed unless you are extremely serious, because almost all gravity feeds fit this marker

The only thing that I think that a person considering buying one of these is shortstroking.
This happens when you don't completely push down the trigger when you fire, and on your next shot it loads an extra ball. This cuts down on the velocity of both balls, and increases the risk of barrel breaks and chops.
Conclusion: This is an extremely good marker for ~$150-200
Rating:
10 out of 10

You can sand the feednecks that don't fit, or cut some slits on the feedneck and put a clamp on it for the ones that are too small.
