Review: This gun is pretty bad compared to other guns on the market. It develops its own problems, such as leaking, breaking balls, board eating batteries, and being extremely innefficient(especially humiliating because its a poppet gun which are known for their efficiency). I've had this gun for over a year and I completely hate it. If your looking for a gun below $300, do yourself a favor and stay away from this gun. Get a smart parts vibe, for $10 more you get a gun that I'd pay an extra $100 for. If I have this gun chronoed at anything above 150, it will break extremely often, and if I go to about 200, I am garunteed a breech break every time(breech breaks literraly prevent the bolt from moving and is extremely hard to clean because it's nearly impossible to get the bolt to move out of the way). This gun is a poppet(poppet refers to the method in which the gun fires the paintball), yet is extremely inefficient on air. Yet another problem is the bolt will randomly uncock itself, which causes a number of things: 1. You are forced to recock the bolt. 2. The paintball that was in the breech was pushed forward a few inches when the bolt uncocked itself, letting another paintball in the breech. 3. You have to call yourself out of the game, go and try to force the bolt to move, then spend at least the next 20 minutes cleaning your gun. After this whole word wall of hate, I will end with the single good thing about this gun: You can get a decent firerate on it. If you have a good trigger finger, you can maybe get 10bps with it, but it doesn't mean too much when anything mentioned above happens.
Conclusion: Don't buy this product. Spend $10 more to save a world of stress and pain on yourself from trying to get your gun fixed. It's caused me a lot of stress and the only reason I haven't thrown it in some dumpster is that I can't afford a new gun at the moment.

Dispute:
I have yet to see any evidence of problems like this in my own Blitz, and I've used it for over 2 years now: in addition, my friend's Blitz (which I recommended he buy) hasn't had any issues either.
I mean no offense to the poster of this review, but 1 year of paintball experience makes me question whether or not he knew from experience how to go about properly maintaining/upkeep/trouble shooting some of these issues (it's obvious he knows quite a bit, but as I was, and still find myself running into, knowing and having experience are completely different things).
We all know that there are going to be the Mulligan markers that were simply made defective: and had he had these issues, contacted Azodin and sent it in/got a replacement marker, and these issues persisted, I might take his word with more confidence. But he didn't list any methods or ways he attempted to fix his marker, nor did he mention anything about him performing simple maintenance on his marker at any given time (lubing, changing o-rings, servicing the reg, etc).
So I would take these issues and the experiences he described with a grain of salt, as it were.
