first of all you people overrate the hell out of these guns... an impulse having the same rating as an amg?? the impulse is FAR superior to the amg
and for the guy who said he constantly whoops on angels with his em1 crew is lying, or the people who own the angels are handicapped or blind.
the em1 is a decent marker. its pretty fast, esp on full auto.
its fairly gas efficient. i used to get around 1000 shots out of a 68 3000 psi.
with a new bolt it will rarely break balls.
for the price you pay for it (i paid $280) it is a STEAL. an electro marker for that price is amazing.
its heavy, and VERY loud. if you are playing woods ball EVERYONE will know exactly where you are because this thing sounds like a firecracker going off.
if you use full auto you WILL chop balls, theres no way around that.
on semi the gun cant keep up with your trigger pull so you wont shoot nearly as fast. maybe 6-7 bps.
good luck finding a drop forward for this gun, its near impossible.
the dip switches on the trigger require you to unscrew the grip, which means no in-game mode switching.
yes there are 20 something different shooting modes but most of them are useless.
better use a thick shell paint like blaze cuz of the guns high pressure, otherwise u will break at the bolt like crazy
the em1 has its downsides. i mean come on, its a spyder. but like i said before the performance / price ratio is amazing. u get near high end marker performance for very cheap, which is why it was my first electro.
i bought an akalmp excalibur and sold my em1 cuz whenever id go out to the fields people could always shoot loads faster than i could, cept when i had my gun on full auto, but then i was guaranteed to chop balls.
Dispute: First off, the brand on a gun is a poor way to stereotype it. The EM and the Primal are two of the best guns Kingman ever put out, imho. The EM takes a little modding to milk it's potential frankly because at the time it came out, any modding that could have been done is now done stock on a lot of Kingman product. (High flowing valves, etc.)
This gun fully modded and upgraded definitely have the potential to compete with stock Angels and Timmies, FACT.
