Review: This is a great little marker. I love the size and how it feels.
I have played with a lot of woodsball markers and this really is my favorite. That includes a completly upgraded a-5 (about $500 in gun and upgrades) and a very nice Automag rt pro, I feel like a idiot saying that, but its true.

Completely stock the sp1 is very accurate. The two primary factors that determine if a MARKER is accurate are consistent velocity and low kick. Barrels and paint quality also make a huge difference in accuracy, but as a far as a marker is concerned, all it needs to do is be consistent. The sp1 has shown to be very consistent with almost zero kick making it clearly the most accurate marker I have used.

The standard sp1 has 3 firing modes which is nice. The trigger is great. I bent the tang on the micro switch just a hair down which really makes the trigger perfect. If you want a do a double trigger go for it, I like the look of a single.

The low force bolt seems fine (never stuck anything in it), but having a pinokio and only shooting as fast as my fingers go means I don't have to worry about ball chopping anyway. The blackheart upgrade gives you eyes if you want that- I prefer a mechanical low force bolt.

The only real knock would be build quality. The marker works fine, but there are little gaps here and there where pieces meet. Not a lot, but a few. Coming from an Automag, which has fantastic build quality, you really notice those little things. Build is probably on par with Tippmann and other markers in the price range. The power button also should be longer as I have to use a fingernail to actually push it in all the way.

There is a nice upgrade path with the blackheart board and new bolts out now. Which is nice if you want to be able to want some new stuff. But really, if you are playing in the woods against people with standard blowbacks, a stock sp1 will easily already be a far better marker.
Conclusion: I would fully recommend this gun to anyone looking for a woodsball gun. I would say 9.5, but there is no option for half points.
