Recommended
Upgrades:
New barrel
part of a match stick and some electric tape (seriously!)
new spring
Strengths: It's light, looks good, light trigger pull, x chamber, lp chamber, side vertical feed, rear cocking, easy to work on, spyder threads and most parts, only $90. This gun can be fixed up really nice with cheap things found around the house like electrical tape, and a match stick.
Weaknesses: The barrel, get a 32 degrees whisper or all american teardrop, the whisper shoots far and is very silent/accurate. The bolt. it can be fixed though, the reason it chops paintballs is that the connecting pin is wiggiling around moving the bolt a milimeter around. It has to be precise. There is no threading for screws to hold the pin so put part of a match stick in. it holds it and i haven't had a ball break since. The ball stopper, because of the frame size of this gun it gets chopped by the bolt, let it get chopped, then get it out, put some electrical tape on, it can be loose, it tightens on the way in, then it will get a little crunched, let the bolt make it stick for a while and then it will be a little smaller but it will still work. You can't use Spyder bolts because they're a little long from the connecting pin to the front, you can sand it down but don't do it too much or you will have lots of ball breaks, and there's no point since you can just fix this one.
Conclusion: 32 Degrees doesn't know what they're doing, if they knew anything about paintball they could fix this gun for about 8 cents on their part. This causes them not to sell as much as they could and get a bad reputation. With my knowlege of blow-back paintball guns I can fix this gun for like nothing. It is great because the gun is great when you fix it and it's only $90 plus a match and some tape. The barrel is the price you pick and the trigger pull is much faster than a Spyder or Tippman. If you have any questions about fixing the gun email me at flamingwacko@yahoo.com
