Review: This marker is probably the cheapest Mil-Sim gun on the market. It is very accurate even with the 11'' barrel. The barrel is not ported at all unlike the cheaper 98c which has porting in the middle of the barrel. As a result the barrel is extremely loud. The barrel is also about two or three times as thick as the 98c's barrel. It weighs alot more than the 16'' barrel I have on it now. The CAR stock has six positions. I like the stalk alot. It is plastic, and I am beginning to have a few problems with it. The plastic magazine carries your tools. The strip of thin plastic where the mag folds open is starting to tear. The mag is also becoming increasingly loose every time I play. Besides this plasic pieces, the gun itself is very durable, just as you would expect from a tippmann. I have never chopped a ball, to this day with this gun. I have dropped it in mud, and continued playing without cleaning it.
I do, however, HATE the board!!! Three round burst works OK, but I cannot stand the safety auto. you must pull the trigger four times within one second then hold it for auto. It is rather annoying, and about 30% of the time you attempt it you will won't have enough concentration to count the trigger pulls during combat.
Conclusion: Overall, I love this gun, especially with all of the upgrades I put on it. I recommend it to both beginners, and serious woodsball players
