Review: At first i was upset with this gun. Using a shake and shoot hopper, i was chopping balls like crazy. Spending $40-50 on a clamping feedneck and electronic hopper fix this though as well as shooting a full 20 oz co2 tank without shooting paint to break in the bolt. An electronic hopper also increases your rate of fire from about 2 to 8-10 balls per second. This is a very heavy gun but after a few hrs of using it you don't notice it. It is mechanical but very easily convertable to electronic. Even without eyes, i no longer chop paint. I recommend a freak jr barrel system. About $80 but well worth it. People talk and talk about how ions are so great. It is a great gun, but honestly my xtra with a clamp feedneck, vl force, and freak barrel system outperforms my friends ion, tippmann 98, and spyder imagine. With nitro and a electo trigger frame, i think the xtra, a $250 will outperform these guns again and maybe even a autococker or angel.
Conclusion: MUST HAVE, great entry level gun, with upgrades can OUTPERFORM IONS AND AUTOCOCKERS, very easy to maintain, cheap, if i had to pick, i would choose my xtra over a ion, not an angel or a dye but a very good gun
10 out of 10
