The Nova 700 is the only gun that is in any way similar to it :-) its been described as "alien"
VSC CCI phantom -- Lapco Autospirit barrel
Palmer blazer -- loads of crap on it
Benchmark 45 grip frame
Electro Kit :)
Both the airstar supernova and the nova 700 are equipped with built in regulators, and D-ICER beads, which give them superior performance in the colder weather.
You can also dual-regulate them to gain even more control over the velocity of the balls.
The novas are purely pneumatic powered: no bolt. Thus, the volume of the shot is very reduced from other guns: having the effect of a silencer.
The ROF is pretty much unsurpassed by most other semi-automatics, but it will chop your paint if you don't have a motorized loader.
Airstar went under. Very big disappointment, as it is a good product.
But section 8 paintball is able to repair them, they have spare parts, and are making upgrades.
A very nice gun, great starter gun, or as a replacement, or as an addition to any collection of paintball guns.
