Review: I picked up a trracer setup today for 200 bucks, including sights and a grip, and I was nothing short of ecstatic from the way the gun preformed.

The pump stroke is very smooth, and gets better and better the more you use it. The stock barrel is phenomenal, its shoots straight even at 100+ feet. The gun comes stock with anti double feed and detents, so you won't have to worry about balls flying out your barrel. Its feather weight polymer design makes it easy to run with and snap shoot, but the guts are all aluminum so it isn't breaking any time soon. The autotrigger is also a big plus, and works very well.

My only issues were the back bottle design, which forces you to use a 9oz or a 13cu air tank. Aiming with any tank larger than those is extremely awkward and renders sights useless from the angle you are holding it. I saw players running remote with this gun, and they had the best results, although you can get by fine with a small tank. Buying a bottom line adapter is another option as well.

Another issue I had was with the velocity, out of the box it was all over the place, like +-50 fps... Five hundred paintballs later it was a more reasonable +-20, and I trust it'll improve as the gun breaks in. (This was with air btw)
Conclusion: Overall I recommend this to anyone who wants to own a pump and not fork over the 300 needed for a decent phantom. It's not quite as nice as the higher end pumps such as the sterlings, phantoms, cockers or chipleys, but for 150 bucks your getting a solid pump gun that shoots straight and won't disappoint.
