Review: I bought this gun knowing it was a very good marker for a rookie paintballer. That turned out to be very true. It takes a licking and keeps on ticking. I have never had a mechanical issue with the gun while playing. Many times during a match, players with higher end guns have had to leave the field due to issues with their gun, while I just play game after game.

It's not a gun that can shoot out a rope of paint like a high end gun but it can get 10 to 15 bps with a stock trigger system. That's due to the cyclone feed system. I have never had a ball chop with my setup.

Like I said earlier, it's heavy, and a day of playing can give your arms a workout. I also knew I had to replace the stock barrel after playing with it for 5 minutes. It's not as accurate as it can be using the stock barrel.
Conclusion: I would highly recommend this gun for someone who's new to the game or someone who wants to play woodsball. It's versatile and durable and doesn't break very easily. Plus it you are competitive in any game versus any gun with the A-5. Great gun, low price with tons of upgrades. What more could you ask for in a entry level paintball gun?
9 out of 10
