electronic hopper a must

Review: Very fun, loud, heavy marker. It chops paint like a habachi chef with a sharp knife, so quality paint and a decent squeege are a must. Hard shell paints work the best, and I have found that the smaller diameters work better than the cheap stuff. An electronic loader helped ease the chopping problem tremendously, and the etrigger helped as well. In full-auto, a chopped ball really doesn't affect accuracy because full-auto isn't about accuracy anyway. I rarely play in semi or 3-round burst -- it is suppossed to be an AK for Petes' sake.
The weight is an issue on long, hot scenarios. I replaced the stock sling with a modern 3-point tactical sling and I am very happy with it.
Some people insist that you run a remote on Tacamos. It boils down to preference. It is definitely not required. (Careful that the weight of the HPA or CO2 tank doesn't loosen the screws under the grip, though.)
I have attempted to play with the stock folded out, but found that it is short and uncomfortable. I almost always play with the stock folded under.
Conclusion: For the money (I found a new one for under $200 a couple years ago), I'd say it is the coolest woodsball or scenario marker out there. Not the most accurate, not the lightest, or quietest -- but neither is a real AK. I like the sheer firepower that it pretends to have, which, I have found, DOES have an affect. (A loud full-auto marker does make people behave differently). Cool unique marker.
8 out of 10
