Review: Intimidating:
Lets be honest, the aesthetics of the gun are beautiful. It's created to look like a real gun and it does that job extraordinarly. Being that most people, on my field at least, are so stuck on using BT'S, Alpha Black's, or Tippman's, it's relatively uncommon to see many other SIM-5's. This leads other players to be unsuspecting of what it can do.

Distance & Accuracy:
Being that it's a more compact design than other rifles, who people try to stick 18 inch barrels on to look more effecticve, you get the same distance as any other gun without spending so much on "cool" upgrades. Mind you the upgrades are still cool :) Accuracy is what'd you'd expect from Ariakon, flawless anywhere from 300 ft. and below.

Mil-specs:
With it looking like a real gun, it just makes you feel good. It makes you feel more of a real fighter, in a real situation. Often I find myself having to calm down from being too special ops.

Durability:
It's built to last no doubt. You can drop and bang it all you want for a long time without causing any serious damage.


Loud:
It's louder than most other guns, plain and simple. It's not always a bad thing for everyone, but for people who want a more covert approach, it's not impressive.

Ported feedneck:
In my mind, there's no reason why a gun with a ported feedneck should not come included with a replacement 45 degree feedneck. It's ridiculous. Without a replacement, if you're using a standered gravity or electric hopper, balls will have problems being pushed down correctly from the hopper being slanted to one side.

Plastic components:
Features such as the grip, stock, and shroud all are plastic. Plastic decreases the durability and just makes it feel more tacky.
Conclusion: It's a great marker if you're willing to spend the money, won't be disappointed. 9/10
