Review: Purchased this gun used off Ebay along with a tactical vest, mask and hopper. Test shot this at my house at a few trees using some Procaps paintballs and fell in love with the marker. Changed the hopper out to a 140 tactical hopper to better go with the vest and the 140 pods that the vest carries plus the 200 rd hopper had a pushed gap in the bottom. Changed the mask that came with it to a extra JT Raptor that I had because the masks elastic band was so stretched out. Carried marker up to my buddies house to show him and let him fire it off a few times and he really likes the marker. Have not used it in a game yet because in progress of getting a new vehicle as mine broke down for the nth time in a year. Will update the review once I do get a chance to use it in a game.


**UPDATE**
Used the Alpha Black this past weekend when playing with my buddy and his kids and a friend of theirs. It worked very good when we switched to all mechanicals when it started to lightly rain on Saturday. It did not do bad when I was using it in the other games earlier in the day when they were all using their electrics. Granted the fact that I was the only mechanical and could only shoot up to so many balls had me at a dissadvantage. I was able to hold my own most of the time during the game till I would get double teamed. Overall I found the gun to be very good in games. I plan to upgrade the gun with a E-Grip and a new bolt as soon as I am able to do so. Might also get either a BT Rip-Clip 98 electric loader or another electric loader once I do the upgrades.
Conclusion: Overall at this time I see this as a very good gun. Will update once I use it in a game.

**UPDATE**
Very good gun. As stated if you are going against all electrics it does have a hard time keeping up with them if it is not a E-Grip equiped marker. But against mechanicals it more than holds its own. Even if you only upgrade it with like a new bolt and barrels it will still hold it own with any other mechanical on the field.
