Review: The Alpha Black overall is a great marker. I've used it on all types of fields, and in my opinon its best for woodsball or large city fields. The selector switch is a pain to change on the fly. I reccommend setting it on Full Auto slow (12BPS). That way if you want you can unload if neccessary. the 3 shot burst is good for when your playing against guys who have the highend markers. Im in the military and I found it second nature holding it and firing. It does NOT preform like a rilfe and dont think you can sit down a pick someone off. Its a paintball gun, but if your used to shooting an M4 or AR15 it will be easy to use. I reccommend a new barrel, electronic hopper, and use good paint.
Conclusion: Definitly buy, if your going to do woodsball or recreational playing, you CAN use it for a tournament, but it is not reccommended. The trigger pull isn't as easy as the high end guns and you can't use full auto or 3 shot burst in tournaments.But the gun doesn't make the player.
