Review: Ok, so while browsing my local paintball store I saw one of these hanging on the pegboard for 50 bucks. I had a friend who expressed interest in paintball, and he grabbed the oppertunity to get a non-blowback for so cheap. (After I explained that no marker has better range simply because how it looks. IE: BT-4's)

After getting it home I put a couple drops of air tool oil in the asa and gassed it up. (Throwing in a battery, of course.) The buttons are a tad sub par, and it took awhile to get the stupid thing from safe mode to fire mode. Once it was there though it worked well. Also note, the marker comes with the reg backed out all the way, this is to make sure the user does not blast the noid' with 850 PSI. Just ease the velocity up when you gas it up the first time. Ok, so now we have gotten the boring stuff out of the way, on to how it shoots.

The gun shoots a lot like a shop air gun. (The things you see mechanics blast dust off of parts and such) This makes this gun pretty fun to shoot. However, the trigger has play. Everywhere. even after tightening it up, the pull still sucked. The plastic on plastic just sucked. Also, the microswitch is a bit heavyier then what one would expect in a paintball marker. (But then again, I like opto triggers with magnetic return, not microswitch.) Regardless, it was quiet and the eyes did their job.

Now, the shot count... This thing is a gas hog. Spoolies suck air like it's going out of style and this one is one of the best examples. It blasted through 3000 psi in 600 shots. Ouch.
Conclusion: Well, for the price range this marker is in, there is no way you can go wrong. But there's flaws for sure. The trigger, stupid flames and laughable gas usage bring it down a few notches.
