sniper bob Monday, October 11th, 2010
Period of
Product Use:
Less than a month
More than 5 years
Products Used:
sniper II, carter, phantom
Marker Setup: super stocker, tropical fade powder coat, side fed reversible phantom feed, .45 frame, auto-trigger, t stock, ported barrel, ghost ring, matched 3.5oz and cci 12gram.
i dislike the standard feed setup, makes misplacing caps easy, but if you dont mind losing green caps, might be faster than the upgraded phantom feed.
Strengths: consistent, accurate, precise, Sheridan ergonomics, hand built.
Weaknesses: Brass bodied, so must be powder coated. softer than aluminum, expensive (be a man).
Review: the only other gun i would consider its equal is a carter. they are both super consistent guns and that is the key to precision and repeatability. Even a setup sniper II is hard to get the same level of repeatability and therefor, accuracy.
one is not better than the other, the reason for going with a 600+ dollar custom gun is for the perfect accuracy capability, and the ergonomics. with all my custom options and outlandish powder coat, put me over 1200.

I cannot play well with nelson markers, (phantom, carter) the single tube setup with the handle over the barrel messes me up when it comes to intuitive shooting.
(in real gun fights its known as point shooting) snap shooting in paintball talk.
I am used to Sheridan's (sniper II) and this matches the ergonomics of my custom sniper II exactly, but lighter. so my years and years of sniper II use transfers over to the Palmer gun, my snap shooting is dead on, but with a more consistent weapon, brings the grouping tighter.

Conclusion: The only reason someone would step to this is they want more than what a phantom or sniper II can offer. Trust me, a sniper II will never be this gun, just as a phantom will never be a carter. After years of denial i finally gave in and made the order, and it was worth it, for the serious player that wants that last edge of consistency in pump play. consider a carter as well, they are equal weapons, the difference is ergonomics. (stocked tubes vs. single tube)
10 out of 10
