Review: This is my favorite marker I have ever used. It's light, maneuverable, and when some guy with some fast marker that shoots 30 bps knows that he/she has been eliminated by some guy with just a pistol it probably makes him feel like a noob again (especially if he's shooting ropes of paint and uses 4 pods and you come in and take him out in a couple of shots). It also saves allot of money on paint. I only use about 30-40 paintballs per game. Of course the trade off is having to buy 12g CO2 cartridges but it still doesnít amount to the price of a case of paint a day. Also by using the CO2 cartridges you don't have to lug around a heavy and bulky CO2 or HPA tank unless your using a remote line.

There's only one flaw in the design that I know of so far which is the dovetail stock. For those of you donít know what I mean by that, it means that the stock has a dove tail looking tab that fits into a slot on the back of the marker. If you were to fall on it you would break ether the back of the marker or the stock, most likely the stock (I do not know this from experience for those of you asking)

There's one more thing that you should know if you get this marker or if your borrow it from a friend. DO NOT clean the barrel out (in the small chance of breaking a ball) with a, rubber like, squeegee with the ball detents in (I know these metal detents are not actually called detents their called something else but I forget what their called for those of you who freak out if someone calls something by the wrong name) because if you do the metal detents will flatten out and become useless. If you have to clean out the barrel use ether a barrel swab which is made out of cloth like material, take out the detents before cleaning (make sure you put them in right), or you can use my favorite squeegee the Veiw Loader profold and only put it in up to the middle of the squeegee and pull it out, if you go further it will just end up like the other squeegee. (This one was a personal experience and I had to use a rental the rest of the day. At leas t the rental was a Tippmann)
Conclusion: Overall this is a great marker and I recommend it highly. The only people who I don't recommend it to are players new to the sport. I give it a 9 out of ten because I know there's always going to be a marker out there I like better, I just haven't found it yet.
9 out of 10
