Review: When I first took the gun out of the box I was surprised as to how light the gun was, its lighter than any gun I've ever held including ego9

So I took it to the field a couple days after I got it to use it and was only getting 3.5 pods off a 68/3k fill and I knew this was way off what I should be getting and sure enough I got a leaker could hear it inside the body near where the poppit valve is and near the LPR. Finished using it that day, and got in contact with Vanguard right away, they agreed to replace my gun with a brand new Gen2 gun.

The gun is extraordinarily smooth and quiet for a poppit.

The included barrel kit is a Lucky Unitech you get a 14" 693 and 689 as well as a 16" 693

Get about 11 pods out of a 68/45

the colour OLED Screen is amazing, and navigating the menu is very straight forward I didn't even have to look in the manual to figure out how to operate the gun and go through all the modes, very self explanatory.

The stock trigger is ver nice and comfortable there is also lots of room in the trigger guard for the people with bigger hands.

Grips I find are a bit narrow but you get used to it and is actually quite comfortable to hold.

The reg is very consistent shooting +/-8 right out of the box got better over time.
Conclusion: This is a very good marker, assuming you get a Generation 2 gun. if you can find one for $1000 or less jump on it but I wouldn't pay the full list price for them of around $1200-$1300
9 out of 10
