Products Used:
- Tippman 98c

- Milsig K series

Recommended
Upgrades:
depends on what type of player you are, if your a back player, take a longer barrel(16 inch and above), if your assault(14 inch) or CQB (less than 14 inch) take a shorter one.
for accuracy wise, probably a red dot sight would help.
Strengths: - Durability, Ease for maintenance, Upgradable, good for its price, reliable (no chop and no jams)
Weaknesses: - accuracy, not very consistent but good enough (no regulator), Front sight
Review: as for my own opinion, there is not much to complain about for this marker since I got it for under 90$ Canadian from my supplier brand new. It performs pretty much like a Tippmann 98 and when I tested it for its accuracy, this is where the weaknesses sets in, with the iron sight the paintball does not goes where I want it to be and I am getting a hard time getting a 1 shot 1 kill on a water bottle with the iron sight on a distance of 50-60 yards away. Since I realized that the front sight is only a piece of plastic sticking out, I noticed that the front and the back sight isint well lined up as it suppose to. The front sight is just lower than the back sight which I consider it as a manifacturers default. Also, when I tested it for consistency on a truck on a distance for 50-60 yards, it was acceptable but more than that, I would assume that it would be innaccurate on a distance. As for the Strengths of this gun, I saw my cousin falling from the stairs and landed on the gun and he picked it up and fired it again. despize that it was filled with sand, it still fires without chop adn jams. As for the maintenance of the gun, when I was about to clean out the sand inside his gun, I took it apart (about 1 minute), rinse the barrel and some parts(about 2-3 minutes), oiled it(2 minutes) and put them all back together(1 minute), I consider easier to maintain than other markers in the market. Also it is very upgradable, it accepts most of the A5 treads, 98 stocks and ect ect. and Finally, the price is pretty good, it goes about 80-150$ canadian, depending who you buy it from.
Conclusion: In general, it is a pretty good gun for its price, you can never go wrong buying this product if your looking for something that you can relie on. But I would recommend using this gun on the indoor field if there is no upgrades on it, because hey.. why would you need accuracy when you can shoot people up from up close with a shorter barrel ;P? Also, it is a very good marker if you are a starter, because sometimes, you would want to look different from the crowd and start playing barbie with your gun and the BT4 combat allows you to do that perfectly, unlike the Tippmann 98, you don't have any rails and you are required to buy them, and buying them cost more money. Overall, comapring the 98 to the BT4 Combat, there is a slight difference, if you are looking for dressing up your gun, get a BT4 Combat, if you just want a gun that has a slightly better performance, get the tippmann 98. All in all, the accuracy and the consistency is okay, just aim with your barrel or chage the the front sight with something else on your BT4 Combat. Probably a red dot will help. As for the professionals, if you are playing on a regular basis, you would want a gun that is easy to maintain, if professionals complain that this gun is not as good as other high end markers, then you should not consider yourself a professional. In general, its the skills of a player that makes the player, not the gun. All in All, I would give a 9 on 10. Great for newcomers for this sport and good as a backup weapon for experienced players.
Rating:
9 out of 10
