Period of
Product Use:

Experience:
More than 5 years
Similar
Products Used:
VSC Phantom
ACI Hornet
SL68-II
Marker Setup: polished brass p68sc
Mad Changer
Mad Fast Loader
Mad Velocity Adjuster
Recommended
Upgrades:
a faster 12g changer, a fast loading system, a velocity adjuster
Strengths: To me it feels better than a SC Phantom becuause of the weight and the fact that you have to rock it back (not forward).
it's a great project marker. you can do work on it yourself, or send it to a custom work shop and have and airsmith do work on it. There are a lot of upgrades that an airsmith can do to it (just take a look at Palmers site).
it looks great, and is easy to run around with.
the firing sound is nice (not loud and not quiet).
takes some parts from PGPs.

all around a really fun marker to play with.
Weaknesses: the stock 12g changer and paintball tube cap need to be replaced ASAP.
the 12g changer takes eight turns to unscrew (and eight more to screw back on). eight! waayy to much time being wasted there. upgrading to a Mad changer or a Palmer Quicksilver seems like a must.
the paintball tube cap is just a small cap that locks the tube closed. i lost mine during the second game with this marker (thus making it imposible to use without loosing all the balls). a fast loader like the one made by Mad Custom is a great upgrade.
it doesn't come with a velocity adjuster, but this is one of the easiest upgrades to find (it's the same as on the PGP).
The pump stroke is a bit rough (especialy if you haven't used the marker in some time). right now i'm looking into if a Copper-T bolt will help reduce this problem.
The original bolt is hard to take out.
The safety spring/ball are easy to loose when you take the grip frame off.
The front grip screw is a pain to screw back into the nut behind the valve.

noone sells them anymore. ebay is the best place to look for one.
Conclusion: while i did write more bad than good, i think this is a great marker for playing and upgrading.
