Tippmann Model 98 Custom, Spyder Shutter, PMI Piranna G3 Pro TS, Bruizer Bandit...all of these guns are decent and in the same price range
completely stock except for the 14 inch TASO ProSeries Barrel
a new barrel is a must, the gun is set up to run at its best with nitro, but i haven't even tried it as of yet
To start off, the only gun that I had prior to this was a Brass Eagle Stingray. I moved up a lot when I purchased my Outlaw. I didn't have too much money for a new gun, but the Outlaw was right in my price range(I got it for $240). This is a very fast gun as far as non-electronic bolt-over-hammer blowbacks are concerned. Of all of the other guns listed under "similar products used" it is the fastest. Its accuracy is decent with a new barrel. The trigger pull is very smooth for my tastes. This gun doesn't break TOO many balls although it isn't immune. This is a very dependable gun as well. I can play with it and be sure that it isn't going to fall apart in the middle of a long game. Maintanence is easy. Just make sure to clean up after every day of play and u have a quality marker.
Well for starters, for some reason I had a few problems with the alen wrench screws on my trigger frame and the valve. They were in soo hard that I rounded the heads out just trying to get them out. I fixed the ones on the trigger frame, but the one that connects the valve to the body is totally worn. In the whole year that I have had it I have never gotten the valve out to clean it...it isn't so bad because in the whole year with it i haven't had any problem with the valve at all. In fact, it is probably just a coincidence anyway. Also...it is not as accurate as I hoped when i bought it. The stock barrel deffinately has to go. Those are really the only bad points I have had with this gun.
Well...I'll say this. PBReview needs a 9.5 button on the ratings because this gun is just short of a 10 in my view. If you are looking for a decent marker that will give you many games of enjoyment while at the same time giving you opponents many games of walking toward the bench and save you a little cash...buy the Outlaw.
