Very good effort on Kingmans part. Not all that bad for a first try at an electro-pneumatic marker. This gun is worth a look see for those that are looking to upgrade, though I think money might be better spent elsewhere. I like how the battery fits it the side of the gun and is easily accessable.
Though the battery does go in the gun nicely, it is a bit more difficult to get out. The machining tollerences are a bit tight here (I acctually took a chunk-o-skin off my thumb taking it out, my bad). There is a bit more blow back into the hopper than I would like but it is acceptable. I am also not in favor of it's price, but if you measure a guns worth by its weight then this gun is worth every pound (a tad heavy). The gun feels heavier when playing at angles because the hopper sits so far above the gun that it throws off the balance.
Remember that you must use compressed air with this gun! I don't really think that it is worth what it costs but it'not a rip off in my opinion either. Upgrading isn't neccesary if your gun comes with the optional OTP barrel. Shoots faster than any hopper that you can put on it, so watch out! Possible alternitives to this gun if you insist on going electonic would be the Impulse or but an ELCD BooYah! frame on your Spyder or Piranha.
