Review: the BT-4 was my first marker, I've had it now for roughly 4 years, although its been replaced by a TM-15. the BT-4 is an excellent entry level marker for a beginner and its strengths are suited to that role.

the marker itself is indestructible. and very simple to maintain. while taking apart the upper an lower receiver apart may take more time then with a spyder, its still very easy to maintain and beginner friendly. while i recommend cleaning any marker after use, unless you have a bad chop the BT-4 is rugged enough that this isn't necessary. in four years experience nothing on this gun has broken and I've only lost 1 o-ring.

in terms of performance you get what you pay for with the BT-4. the stock barrel is mediocre. any cheap barrel like a smart parts 14 inch will improve your accuracy remarkably. running on CO2 it is not the most efficient or consistent. an expansion chamber helps, but for the same price a compressed air tank will do the same thing.
all in all the BT-4 performs well. in Canada the velocity will go +/- 10fps every shot on CO2 in the summer. with a 14 inch barrel you will be able to hit anything in range reliably.

one of the greatest strength of the BT-4 is your ability to customize it. fake magazines, any custom 98 stock, any A5 barrel and anything you can put on a picatinny will fit this marker. some stocks get in the way with using the sights, an offset rail with a red-dot would fix this though.


Conclusion: the BT-4 is designed as an enrty level marker and excells at that purpose. its durable, and easy to upgrade, while the performance is good for the price.

if your think of going out and buying a ton of upgrades and barrel kits and dumping a lot of money into this marker, you might want to fork out he extra money and just go straight to an X-7 phenom or TM-15. these markers run on better systems and you'll get better performance with them then ever possible on an BT-4

all in all excellent marker for the price, will never break down, and performs reliably.
