Products Used:
their arnt really any guns that this is similar to. but i would have to say that it is simmilar to an autococker in the way that the trigger moves and if your not good at cocker triggers then you might start choping a lot of paint.
Marker Setup: nova 700 with 45 grip and trigger shoe
impulse #007990 w\ freak barrel and sp df
Recommended
Upgrades:
the first upgrade that i would sugest is a 45 grip so that you can mount a drop forward and stuff like that. the 45 grips are the same as the ones that you might get for a spyder.
Strengths: some of the good things about this gun is that it works. no i mean it NEVER fails to work unless theirs somthing horribly wrong with it. to clean the berach of paint between games just put on the safety and run water through the breach and thats it nothing to take apart or anything.
this thing shoots strait as anything with good paint no barrel upgrades nessacary. it has about a 3-4 mm trigger pull once you modify the trigger linkege a little. thats not hard though anyone can do it as long as you have an electric drill and a file.
Weaknesses: the bad is that the company is no more so replacement parts are few and far between. but if your careful you should never need any beside the occasional o-ring that you can get at your local hardware store. their are no replacement barrels or any thing if you should happen to dent or break your orinional brass one. but i havent so i never really looked so their might be somewhere that i never seen. the best way to fix that problem is dont break it. while on the subject of the barrel their are no ball detents so if you shoot really small bore paint you might find that some paintballs falling out of the barrel.
Conclusion: this gun is really great as a backup gun i would not really sugest it as a primary gun for tournys. it might be good for rec players as a primary. this gun is a gas hog because it opperates at the super low pressure of 90 psi it has to use a lot of gas to get the ball to go the proper speed. on the upside of that it does not break paint. ive even shot cracked balls with no problem results may verry. if you are looking for a unique marker and can find one go for it. im giving it an 8 because their are better guns but this is one of the better ones. it would get an 9 but lack of upgrades brings it down.

Dispute:
Just because it runs on 95psi doesn't mean it's a gas hog!

No, I don't have this marker, but plenty of other reviews by people who do own them say they are extremely efficient. Yes, it uses "more" gas to get the ball to 280fps or so, but it is also using a MUCH lower pressure to do it. If you go by volume, it's using the same amount of air as a normal marker to fire the ball.

Low pressure = longer burst of slower (lower pressure) air
High pressure=shorter burst of faster (higher pressure) air
