A new barrel, perhaps a new hopper if you fire quickly

Review: This gun was bought for 99.00. I did my research, and found that virtually no one had anything significant that bothered them. I snagged this gun for 3 reasons: The look, the reputation, and the name. The gun is very light in your hand, and with a 20 oz CO2 cartridge on, it is well balanced. Velocity was set pretty good right out of the box. I don't use electronic hoppers; I only use gravity feed...I'm not a fast shooter. Playing woodsball with my buddies in sub-freezing temps, this gun held its own against Tippman 98s, other Spyders, and a few Tac-5s. I did not chop one ball until my 3rd hopper, which didn't cause any problems like it can in other guns. It fired smooth and consistent. If i wanted to spout off a few real quick, I could do it without worry or flinch. The only downfall: out of the box, remove the screws holding the stock together, and put some threadlock compound on them. Mine came loose during play, as I have seen others comment. Thread lock fixed this right up. Field stripping was a breeze. Pull out the pin, and you're on your way to a clean gun. The bolt can go in upside down. Just look on the bolt and line up the groove with the ball detent. It can only go in 2 ways. I made a small mark on mine so I can see the correct way without looking too closely.
Conclusion: The gun is tough too. It is easy on CO2, fires great, is pretty quiet, and is dependable. It is well balanced and relatively light for a military style marker. Also very compatible with almost any type of ball. I use Alpha, but all balls have worked fine. If you are willing to spend the hundred or so bucks, this gun is one of your best choices! I don't regret the buy! 8 out of 10. Some upgrades are good if you are picky, and nothing is perfect.
8 out of 10
