Products Used:
Tippman
Marker Setup: ICD Alley Cat II (stock)
Recommended
Upgrades:
Due to the age of this marker, very few upgrades exist. Can still find barrels (stock came with a 10") and grips (stock came with Euro style pistol grip). Can replace recock and velocity screws with cap end screws to make in-game adjustments with out the need for allen wrench.
Strengths: Rugged. Easy to maintain and use. Small/compact. Accurate. Reliable. Nice design.
Weaknesses: Age (hard to get replacement parts or upgrades)
Review: This is my first and only purchased marker. I bought it on recommendation from the owner of a local paintball shop. He liked them as much as Tippmans and used them as rentals as well. I've read reviews that complain about disassembling the marker for cleaning and maintenence, but it is not difficult at all. I have had this marker since 1998 and have never had any major problems with it. I recently thought of purchasing a new marker, but have yet to find anything I like as much as my Alley Cat. I just wish ICD was still around and making these markers, they're great! Plus the black, hard annodizing is next to impossible to scratch! I only play woodsball and have banged this thing on everything and have no scratches or wear in the finish.
Conclusion: If you can find one, BUY IT! It is an excellent marker for beginners, or as a back up, or as a primary, depending on your style of playing and budget. As much as I love this marker, I don't think it would be suited for speedball or tourney type games.
