Dead Parrot007 Friday, April 19th, 2002
Period of
Product Use:
6 months
1 year
Products Used:
BE Avenger (sucks), Tippmann 98 custom (much better)
Marker Setup: (1) Tippmann 98 custom with Rikochet 2K hopper, 20 oz co2 with butt plate, SP 2002 All-American, double trigger and small drop forward.
(2) Point zero model 83 (no bottom line)
Also I guess Zap makes another marker just like this called the Winchester Durango which looks exactly like this except apparently it has spyder threading.
Are there any upgrades? Apparently the barrel is Zap threaded but if you can find one a better barel would be nice. I like mine without the bottom line because then the tank makes a front grip and also the co2 won't turn liquid and run into the marker or whatever happens.
Strengths: Looks cool, pretty light, fairly accurate, cheap- I got mine for $20 with a subscription to Paintball 2 Xtremes which was also $20, but I think that offer is over now. Otherwise you can get it and a package for like $70.
Weaknesses: The trigger pull is really long and kind of stiff and also it kind of makes little scrunching noises and feels weird when you pull it. I guess you could put in a lighter spring or cut the one that's in there or something. It has a sight rail, which is bad for me because I just happen to like normal open sights better. It's hard to cock. The barrel is short and doesn't have any porting. Also it's silver and shiny so if you play woods games and you want to be all camoflaged, you'lle have to put something on the barrel or better yet, get a new one.
Conclusion: This is an ok beginner marker I guess, but anyone considering buying this should probably just save up a little more money and go with a Tippmann 98 custom or something. I just got it so if I have a friend over we can shoot around a little or even go to a field and not have to rent. I wouldn't really want to use this as my primary marker but it's fine for a backup and for friends. I'm giving this an 8 because of the price, but for perfomance it's probably a 7.5.
8 out of 10
