Paintball
Experience:
3 years
Similar
Products Used:
PT Xtreame - Faster rate of fire but with a ten round ammo tube I'm not sure if that is a good thing. This one leaked so bad that it emptied a 9oz in 20 minutes. (from what I've read that is not uncommon with PT Xtreames)
Marker Setup: Tippmann 98 Custom with polished internals, response trigger, cyclone hopper, and apex barrel. Or a Sheridan P-68 AT
Recommended
Upgrades:
Polishing the bolt and barrel
Strengths: Extreamly reliable
Decent accuracy
It is small
Mine is over 18 years old(no joke)
Weaknesses: Slow rate of fire
Hates the cold
Review: I got this gun of a friend for $60. He said that he had only used it once or twice and that it had sat in his closet for several years. Mine had origionally come in a set with a P-68 and the tank with them was from 92. When I first shot it I had some problems with the cup seal but it was nothing that a bit of oil couldn't fix. The pump action was extreamly difficult, but If you polish the barrel and the bolt you shouldn't have any more trouble. My bigest complant is that when the gun was manufactured a lot of paint got into the barrel which really messes up your accuracy and made the gun hard to pump. Like I said before though if you polish it it eliminates the problems. Because the gun uses 12 gram co2 cartridges it hates the cold and usually fires about 80 fps less if it is 20 degrees out. (where I live if I don't play when its cold out then I might as well not play at all)
Conclusion: On the whole this is a great gun for stock players and also makes a good side arm. Because it is made almost exclusivly out of brass the thing is almost indestructible and because of its age it is kind of rare. If you get a chance buy it.
