Review: I got this gun at Academy for 25 dollars. When I got home, I went to the backyard to shoot it. I did my usual preperation, getting paint, Co2, ect. When I put the two Co2 12 grams in the back and tried to screw the back on, I had to get a pipe wrench to even move it. After taking it off and putting it back on several times, I found that I put the Co2 in a little off, causing the back part of the gun to almost break. I fixed it, then moved on, proceeding to put the paint in.

The gun likes to change its accuracy alot. The first time I shot it, I was aiming for the middle of the tree, and it hit slightly off, but most guns do that due to gravity. But after a couple more shots, it started curving drastically. Aiming for the middle of the tree, it hit the trunk. Another couple shots, aiming at the top of the tree, it hit the middle. Aiming for the middle, it hit the top. It went up and down like that alot.

Velocity likes to change, too. First time I shot the gun, I couldn't really see the ball and it would break on the tree. A few more shots, I could see the ball as soon as it left the gun and it still broke on the tree. I few more shots, it would just bounce off the tree. Shoot, break, shoot, break, shoot, bounce, shoot, break, shoot, bounce, shoot, bounce.

It didn't use alot of gas, though. I maybe got 35-40 shots off with two 12 grams.
Conclusion: I think it would be an ok backup gun beacuse of the price and gas effiency. I would recommend spending another $5 for the Brass Eagle Talon Ghost 2, though.

Overall, an ok backup gun if you're low on money.

I got about two 50 round hoppers full of paint through this gun before it ran out of CO2.
