Product Use:

1 year
Products Used:
Smart Parts Vibe-infinitely better
Marker Setup: Smart Parts Vibe (old one-with eyes)
Viewloader hopper
Pure Energy 20oz CO2 tank
Upgraded barrel coming soon...
Strengths: Super, super cheap.
Weaknesses: Chops a lot
Very inaccurate (because of all the chops)
Review: I got two of the packages this marker comes with for $70...which seemed like an amazing deal at the time. Really, all I wanted was a cheap marker that I could use to see if I was really interested in paintballing. Honestly, it would have been better to spend another $100 to get something that would actually work.

The Good
-Very cheap. Marker, hopper, mask, Brass Eagle 3.5 oz. disposable CO2 tank and adapter for just $35.
-If you still enjoy paintballing after using this gun for a while, then you know that it's for you

The Bad
-It chops. A lot. The first time I used this marker, it wasn't too bad (relatively). It chopped maybe 30% of the balls I fired. The second time, it worked like a charm. Didn't chop once. Every other time I've used it, it's chopped about 95% of the balls I fired. I never got anybody out after those first two days. Absolutely awful.
-Blowback design means that when you chop a ball, all of the paint gets blasted up into the hopper, ruining the rest of your paint and ensuring that it will all chop.
-Blowback cracked the lid on my hopper
-A little bit heavy
Conclusion: Don't buy it. Even if you're new to paintball and the prices are kind of intimidating, stretch and buy a Smart Parts (if you can find one...they went out of business in July) or a Spyder or something. It'll be the best $100 you ever spend on paintballing, because you won't have to experience this gun.
I'm only giving it a 1 because I can't give it a 0.
