Review: I bought this gun for my friend to use after the spare gun I had gotten fell apart, since it was cheap and available. Now this is a pretty nice gun, no matter what other people say.

First off, the body is made out of plastic, not aluminum. This makes the gun light but it can easily scratch, bend, break, etc., but only under a ton of abuse. This is a plastic used to make high-quality items, such as medium-strength airsoft AEGs, foregrips and other attachments for the RIS.

But this gun was made for the player in mind. The rail on the top is fake, so dont go out buying a red dot for it anytime soon. The barrel on it is short, which is ideal for CQB, but not for across feild sniping.

Ive heard reviews on it being a hog on air, but the one I had ran on a 20oz tank for 4-5 hours.
Conclusion: If your a beginner, get it. Its low priced, so if you decide you dont want to play paintball, you wont feel bummed because you just spent $200 on a merker. If your a more dedicated player, get a Tippmann 98c or a U.S. Army branded Tippmann marker.

I'm not going to dispute your review on the grounds that I feel sorry for you.

There are SOOOooo many better paintball guns that cost about the same amount of money out there. The Azodin Kaos is one of them and the Spyder Sonix is another. These are both GREAT paintball guns that cost under 100$ and with proper maintenance can last 10+ years as a front line paintball gun. Conversely, with proper maintenance, the TStorm might last you 6 months as a front line gun. By front line use I mean playing at least once a week for at least 3-5 hours at a time.

Maybe you don't play enough to see how quickly this gun runs itself into the ground but when it does - PLEAAASSEE update your review and score!
