Review: I have only used my gun once but I was impressed with it. The gun is sickeningly light, feels like nothing in your hands. Proto also did a great job with the user manual, everything is explained very clear in the manual and you should have no problems with it. The gun is very quiet, you barely hear it when you shoot. I only used it in Semi while I played but I had no problems laying out ropes of paint.
There were a few downsides. I broke a bit of paint the day I used it. My barrel size was a little bigger than the paint but I think I broke about 20 shots the whole day. I also had a problem with the eyes getting dirty, ie broken paint. This led me to a couple of misfeeds that, stupid me, I walked out of the game because I didn't know what to do. Push the bleed button on the back of the gun a few times and it cycles the bolt. My accuracy was a little off that day as well but that is due to larger bore to paint match.

Update:
I used my gun again this past weekend and I must say, leaps and bounds better. My bore to paint match was perfect. I had no problems with breaks the whole day. My accuracy was dead on and range was quite sufficient. I played with it in PSP ramping for the first half and I was amazed at how fast I emptied my hopper. I had to set it back to Semi so I didn't burn through all my paint. This gun is definitely great and I look forward to using it again.
Conclusion: All in all, this is a great product for the price. It is definitely worth it for someone who is just starting out but probably not what you want if you are going for the serious tournament play. I would still recommend it to anyone though.
