Review: This marker is the same thing as an A-5 it is just more realistic looking and has more realistic upgrades for it. The A-5, X-7 and the 98 all have the same internal parts, so they all basically perform the same. The A-5 and the X-7 have the cyclone feeder, besides that you are paying for looks.
The X-7 is lighter than the stock A-5, and if you like realistic looking guns this is the one to have. You can recreate almost anything out of this marker just rememder you are paying for looks not performance, if all you want is a good gun for cheap buy a 98 with a cyclone upgrade for about $180 and get a new barrel and call it good.
Conclusion: If you are into scenario games and realistic guns this one is for you if not buy a cheaper gun for less money. No performance improvements just cosmetic.
