Review: So, a few days after I got this gun, I took it out to my buddy's house for a 1 vs 1 day. I'd never used this gun before, and had no idea how it would perform. I had and old piranha R6 with a valve leak, and on it there was a 14 inch linear smart parts barrel. I took the barrel off this oldie and hoped it would fit. It did, and soon enough I was out enjoying my day... At the end of the day, I was more than satisfied with the gun. Out of about 1000 balls I went through in the whole day, it only broke about 5. Those breaks were in the middle of epic fire fights, when I had the gun going about 13 bps. And even when the gun broke a few balls, after about 5 shots the barrel was clear and I could start shooting accurately again. However when the barrel had paint in it, the balls would go ABSOLUTELY nowhere near the target. And if you are looking to be a sniper, and you happen to purchase this gun, stick a sight on it and get a quieter barrel. From my experience, Smart Parts Tactical barrels are accurate and quiet. If you do use the stock barrel, make sure you have a good shot on the guy before you pull the trigger, because the second you do, he will turn around and know where you are from the "BANG"!
Conclusion: All in all, this is a very good marker for the price of $150. There are only a few downsides, all of which can be, taken care of, if you will. If you really want a good, inexpensive, reliable marker for the beginner woodsballer, this is the marker for you.
8 out of 10

its not really a co2 pig , tippys are worst, maybe you were going auto all day which wastes more gas.
