2 years
Products Used:
I have only ever owned 2 weapons, this and a Joker, and the Joker is a bag of pants compared.
Marker Setup: Nothing special.
A badge on it, it reads "If you can read this, why are you staring at my pistol?!"
A new bolt is probably needed.
Strengths: Get the 494 in a double and move around in a Castor Troy swagger, and you are the man on the field.
I once lost one in a battle, hence an only semi-Castor Troy swagger but still, it came down to me and a team-mate against 3 opponents. I was eventually left with a 1 on 1 situation and i was about to make the kill, when the SOB split the ball. Though, it did not break it, it pulverised it. The "spray" went for 3 metres and decimated the other guy who will no longer talk to me because he thinks I used something illegal. He was a prick anyhow... so that's a long whinded thumbs up... really... I think.
Weaknesses: It broke a ball once?
Oh and if you drop it, it is very attractive to other players who swindle it into their bags and run away with the damn thing.
It has on occasion began to jolt before firing, i think this was caused by a cracked rear chamber... but im not so positive.
Oh... if you use the 494 in a double, do not fire simultaneously, fire one then the other as the recoil is not consistent with each other and you will lose any advantage as you gauge the next effort.
Conclusion: Get 494 in a double, win.
9 out of 10
