Recommended
Upgrades:
a new hopper that is electronic
a new barrel, J&J is good, I use to use one, I would recommend a 14 or 16in.
a new stock or cutting the top off the stock one is needed to see down the sights
a co2 hose line helps to take some off the weight off the gun


Strengths: Looks great, 3 modes of firing
Weaknesses: Heavy, once the Co2 and hopper is added
chops a lotta paint
Review: Ok here we go-

I started this gun with a 14in J&J, worked great. Once I got the money, I bought the new Rap4 barrel and butt stock. Over this past summer I played quite a bit of woodsball. This gun is great at woodsball gun and can compete with 98c and A5.

This past Christmas I bought the carry handle/ scope mount and APEX. The gun with all these upgrades has good distance and accuracy. However the gun stills chops a lot of paint. Every third or fourth ball chops, so I'm getting some new detents. I really can't complain tho about the chopping, it never really bothered me in the summer. However living in the north makes the cold hard on the gun. When my gun wasn't chopping it was as good as any gun out in the cold, bad. However once i started to chop, it chopped a lot, The barrel would clog up and the paint would freeze very quickly. Heard the detents can help this problem so i'll give them a shot.

Conclusion: Overall this gun is good for people wanting to get into paintball, or want a good woodsball gun that is still cheap. This gun isn't perfect, but with a little time and money you can turn this stock gun into a pretty mean killer in the woods or in the field.
