Review: I bought this gun as my frist gun when I got into paintball a year and a half ago. My buddy that I worked with played and invited me to come play with him and his two boys. At that time they had a T-Storm and 2 VL Triton II's. He said he liked the Triton better and it was a little better gun but being on a budget the T-Storm would do fine. Bought the gun and would play with it once a week for about 4 months. Used Visible Impact paint in it and never had a problem. Went to a large paintball park about 40 minutes from where I live that is a field only paint park and started to have problems. Paint chopping, gun not fireing right. Got home took marker completely apart and found that paint all in my trigger assembly. Cleaned and oiled entire marker and shot some Vis Imp and had no problems. Got my VL High Voltages not long after so this got shifted to a backup or loaner gun. My cousin came to play and he went to fire on around the 5th game after no problems before. The gun starts to do what it did at the paintball park and the bolt and cocking pin fly's out and can't be found. This happened around Sept of 08. Got another one and had no problems with it from Sept 08 till dismantled it for spare parts this July 09 after getting a JT Stealth to replace it. Overall I found that it is not a bad gun to start with. Yes you can get some that do have problems right out of the box, but that is the same with anything you get. A friends son had just got one and it would "burp" when fired. Changed out O-rings and oiled it and it worked fine. Had a nicked O-Ring on it from the factory.
Conclusion: Overall it is not a bad marker if you are on a budget and just starting out. The new kits I don't like as much since they put a 200 rd hopper in it and did away with giving you a free bag. But not bad to start with if you are a woodsball player. But f you do have a extra $20-25 bucks get the replacement for the Triton II that is being sold now that is the Stryker Cybrid for about $79.99 at Wal-mart.
