I got this gun as my first and at the time it was the best gun in the world, i was going to use it for the first time that weekend and it had a very hard trigger pull but it was super accurate and very light, i dont remember what size tank i used because it was a rental but it was still awesome,but the dang thing will bread if you drop it, you dont even have to fall on it, that is just about the only turn down.
i would recommend this to a beginner. it doesnt shoot fast and tdhat is what turns me away. i currently have an ion and that baby will fly! Anyway. good gun
