First off, without the barrel or hopper, the marker looks like a souped up pistol and I love that. There are 4 push-pins that basically give you the ability to swap triggers and/or take out the internal workings. The safety button is well positioned for easy access just in case of something happening mid game and a cease fire is called by the ref. The hopper is a little big but it should not be too much of a problem if you pay attention to your peripheral vision. I can also imagine that left handed people may have a problem with the hopper and cyclone feed being on the right. But it works great for us right handed paintball players.
A quick note about the cyclone feed system- in my few months of playing and thousands of balls fired, i haven't chopped a single ball.
My recommendations for this marker would be a shoulder strap and some sort of longer trigger. I like the shoulder strap because I feel it gives me better grouping when I am running from bunker to bunker and have to shoot without looking directly down the sights. The longer trigger would be a good addition (for larger fingers at least) because your middle finger is sitting idly waiting for some action!
The only gripe (and i mean ONLY), I have with this marker it the plastic that goes in front of the trigger that protects your finger. Because I have large/long fingers this was just kind of awkward for me to get into firing position quickly. But a simple Philips screwdriver took care of that.
Hope this has helped. Stay safe
in conclusion, this gun is great for players starting out and casual players. Sturdy build, a little heavy at FIRST but a few minutes to get a feel and your good. I give this gun a 99.998% because there is always room for improvement. But I love it and have recommended it to all of my friends/family/ and now you guys.
