Review: I am used to playing with a Minimag (Smaller version of the Automag). I liked my friends old carbine back in the day so I thought maybe I would give the Alpha Black a try since it is made by tippman. I tried to get adjusted to the whole long body rifle feel...not my style. It is hard to set a shot at somebody with your mask on, and when you do, it is hard to aim it with the sight rail. By the time you are set and pull a shot off, your enemy would have seen you and fired 5-6 rounds at you already. Dont get me wrong, its a great gun for starters, especially at the price.

The gun looks great, shoots fine if thats your style, and doesn't need much maintenance. However, if you do decide to pull apart the gun and clean/lube the bolt, make sure you know where everything is at!
Conclusion: Would recommend it for starters, anybody who wants to go deep into the guts and bolts of a gun...I wouldn't recommend it. I felt as if it was a downgrade from the Minimag, and that gun is 5+ years old.
