Review: Great gun overall. I bought it as soon as it came out, for a cheap $170. The gun is waterproof, (Can be shot under water without harm), it can be run on C02 if nessicary, but I would reccomend going to HPA as soon as possible. It is a micro-switch single finger trigger, but that isn't a big deal because I rip pretty fast with it anyways, its adjustable as well, so you can move it back, and if you want, you can buy a double trigger for it for about $40. When I first got it, I was running C02 because my field didn't fill HPA. On C02 it messed up a bit for me, but it was just becasue I was shooting downhill normally, so liquid C02 got into it and would make me wait about half a minute before it started working again. It has great efficiency, operating on 180 PSI. As soon as my field got HPA I bought a crappy little steel tank and a new barrel and the SP-1 was preforming amazingly. It is almost perfectly consistant, and shots that I would of been scared to try before were now easy. Lots of one shots as well. It has some good distance with the LAPCO, I would reccomend a new barrel right away after you buy it to save some trouble. (ION thread). Buy a decent hopper for it and you will be set, the stock feedneck isn't clamping, you tighten it with allen keys, but it is definatly a nice feedneck if you don't need to take your hopper out mid game. I had a problem with the front plug not coming out so I cant mount a flashlight, but thats not too big of a deal, so i gave up fast. Aside by that, the gun is very very nice. I made sure I used it for at least a year before I put up a review so I could state any problems with it. At one point it started to squek a bit for me when I shot, but after I cleaned it and lubed it up again, it was doing fine again. The bolt is very easy to access and maitnence as well. Just open up the back plate and unscrew the bolt out the back, and grease it. Its very easy. I wouldn't of minded a nicer board, but you can't expect that out of a busahball gun, so I'm not concerned about that either. It has never really broke down on me, and the velocity stays pretty consistant. I think an off-set feedneck would of been a nice addition, so the sight rails on top could be used for a red dot or something of that sort. Its not super upgradeable, but check this gun out, its nice for sure, and well worth the price.
Conclusion: This gun is great. Smart Parts gave us a beautiful price on it, and it really has a lot to offer. Buy a nice barrel for it, and your set up with an amazing working gun, that won't break on you. I give it a nine out of ten only due to the dusty stock barrel, and it messing up when shooting down hill on C02. But if you have HPA on it, the gun is amazing.
9 out of 10
