Review: I wanted a spare marker to loan newbie co-workers when we go paintballing. I found this one on eBay. After watching the youtube videos and reading up on some reviews, I couldn't believe how cheap this marker was! The marker I got was the deluxe version with an upgraded board with more modes. The marker did not say WGP on it. I asked the seller why and he said it is the same marker w/ a better board but not branded bc WGP stopped selling markers.
I unscrewed the battery cap in the back (wonder why they made the screw so long, I just screwed it back half way) and put in a 9 volt battery. Screwed in my compressed air tank and used the included allen/hex wrench to increase the marker pressure until the gauge said 180 psi, popped in my Empire Reloader B (I had to wrap some electrical tape around the neck for it to stay in tight). I dumped some 8 month old paintballs into the loader and started shooting.
I was amazed at how fast and quiet the marker is w/ almost no kick.
I was so curious I decided to chrono the marker. With the gauge reading 180 psi, the velocity was at consistently at 280 feet per sec +/- 5. This marker is incredibly fast and consistent and efficient with air. I hit about 16-17 bps with no chops and old paintballs. I'm estimating I can shoot twice as many paintballs with the same amount of air than my $400 Fusion marker.
Next, I took apart the plastic casing of the marker and examined the metal innards. I didn't mess with it much but it looked pretty damn solid. I'll update this review if I ever decide to open it up further. The seller says they are going to make different colored plastic bodies for this marker soon. I'm definitely looking forward to some accessories for this marker.
Conclusion: Absolutely the best marker for the money out there. I challenge anyone to find a marker that has a lower price and can perform as well as this marker. Good for beginners and as a back up for advanced paintballers. Highly recommended!
