Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Similar
Products Used:
Name a blowback semi... there ya go
Marker Setup: Used stock 1 year, used with expansion chamber 2nd year, Custom Products bolt added 3rd year, Left it alone at four
Recommended
Upgrades:
Expansion chamber and a new barrel. You could also get a 2x frame if you don't fare to well with the stock one.
Strengths: -Sturdy, it trully is built like a rock (can take a lot of abuse)
-Reliable, I have never (underline never) missed a game because it has gone down
-Easy on parts, Yes I have a notorious early '99 marker and yet she still on the original internals. The trigger assembly worked great (no sear problems, ever) and it still has the original cup seal!
-7 BPS: It can do seven, it's a blowback semi, the majority of users are poor newbies, why would they need more?
-Valve: Never freezes over, perfect for cold weather play (I can freeze over a tank but the gun will still want to run)
-Design: Totally enclosed body, no foreign contamination, cocking system is one of a kind
-Barrels: Uses F4/Griffin and Tippmann Prolite/ProCarbine barresl (not to hard to find)
Weaknesses: -Trigger pull is heavy, some players have "bankers hands" and don't know how to handle it
-Clicking problem: If you know older F4s you'll know that the earlier '99s had a problem. If the trigger mechanism was over oiled or had a little bit of grime in there it had a problem resetting itself, it's easily fixed by cleaning the mechanism.
-Trigger shoe: Falls off on older models, most people who did their homework new to locktite it before playing with it.
-Low number of aftermarket accessories: Hehehe don't need 'em anyways
Conclusion: Designed as a low cost low end blowback semi automatic marker. You can pull it out of the box, cock it, screw in a tank and rock 'n roll. ACI did it right when they took over this line of markers.

I give it a ten, it is the best blowback semi out there. Period.
