Review: when reading up on this gun, i really liked it and wanted one. my buddy got one and let me test it, i took it as my back up gun to a tournament, and was very glad i didnt have to use it. the frame is nice, it shoots well, but i cant justify going out and buying one of my own. while it is a nice gun, the price is way too high. this is a gun more on the performance level of a PMR or Etek, but still at the price of a Geo+ or a used DM9. it needs a new reg right out of the box, before 2010 DP regs were shim stacks, and just horrible to clean, would spike velocity, and be really inconsistent. after 2010, they turned to a spring reg when they released the G4 and the FX. not sure if plans to rerelease the rev-i as an upgraded gun are in the works, but for now, this gun is just not worth the money. it would be a great $600 gun, but a terrible $850.

its hard to clean, to get the bolt out you have to stick a tool down the front of the gun, the tool is hard to replace too if you lose it. the board, while nice only lets you shoot in whole number speeds, like 12 or 14 bps, not 12.33 or 14.5. there is no LPR, not many spool valve guns besides a matrix has a LPR, but its a great thing to have on any gun. the trigger is hard to adjust. and very poor efficiency. 1000 shots on a 68/4500 tank
Conclusion: If you can find one in good shape and dont have to pay over 500 for it, go for it, but there are much better guns out there.
