good price...got mine for $66 off of ebay (had a small leak..nothin big)
stock barrel is pretty good for stock
hasn't chopped any paint on me
practically identical to spyders but costs waaaayyyy less
effecient on co2(even with a leak)
easy to strip
vertical feed and you can aim with the sight rail on top of the gun unlike other vertical feeders
stock barrel isnt great, but its good enough to some killin
if you put the valve in backwards it'll shoot a crap load of liquid co2 out of the barrel(be careful when putting things back in :)
speed is pretty bad in cold weather..just get an x-chamber
little on the heavy side, doesnt bother me really...if you're too weak to carry this gun then you shouldnt be playing the sport
overall this is an awesome marker, identical to spyders so you can use any spyder product on it. got mine for less than the compacts go for and its about 5 times better. If you're getting upgrades go to ebay...everything is about 1/3-1/2 off.
If you're planning on having this gun for the long haul buy an x-chamber and a new barrel (dont bother with the dye stuff...just get a cmi thunderpig 12-16")
...I'll give it a 9...not the best marker...but its awesome.
