Products Used:
Decked out stingray 2 with 16" spin free riffled sniper barrel- 3 stage expansion chamber, custom extra under barrel grip, ghillie cover and scope! Decked out Winchester Durango with 16" spin free projection rifled sniper barrel- bottom line adapter, a co2 gauge, and custom 6-color desert camouflage painted. Griffin B/L just now getting upgraded. Ordered a new silenced 14" barrel and a co2 gauge that both havenít arrived yet.
How do they compare with this product?
The answer
Everything stock sucks until upgraded!
This product is known for being crappy. I know believe me.
Marker Setup: SNIPER RIFLE! A fully decked out GT Commando 2 with the new 21" 3-piece thunder pig spin-free projection rifled barrel (Extremely Accurate), Co2 gauge, scope, hair trigger system, Polished internals, polished barrel, and ghillie covers. The barrel is actually rifled. You can look down it and see the straight grooves! I also own a 14" see through chrome plated razor barrel and the stock barrel thatís 13" long.
Upgrades: 21" IR Spyder Sniper barrel
Co2 gauge
Polish your internals. Learn how at
Polish your barrel.
Hair trigger system (a softer trigger spring)
Well nothing at first. As you know stock guns suck. Well most of them anyways. The good is that it comes upgraded with a 6-stage expansion chamber. You can turn it in to a sniper rifle big time. I bought an extremely soft trigger spring to give it a hair trigger. Its not as touchy as an electro though. I also polished my internals. You know the hammer, venturi bolt, sear, trigger, and even the valve pin and cup seal. I know I take it to the extreme.
Weaknesses: The bad
Well there are defective guns and there are non-defective guns. It is good ratios at 50/50 because people get bad ones and good ones. Unfortunately I go the bad one. No problem for me though. I fixed it up in no time. I am a really handy man once it comes to paintball markers. I know them all. Closed bolt, closed bolt pneumatics, blowback, blow forward electro ECT. I know just about everything. I prefer this gun over my auto cocker. Why because It is a lot more accurate and doesnít take batteries. Sorry getting off point! Well some of the guns have leaky bottom lines, barrels, defective detent pins, and very inaccurate. Well you see It is all on how you use the marker. You canít go all out trigger-happy and expect it will make up for accuracy. Its not a speedball tournament gun because itís to big and heavy. But it is a good playing around gun. When I go to the field I use it because I get respect for its looks. Let alone the accuracy helps a lot.

Conclusion: Conclusion
Buy it! Upgrade it to a sniper rifle. Oh and e-mail me for questions on anything about these guns Thanks

this is directed to arch angel, the one who wrote the first comment. what do you mean theres no such thing as sniping in paintball. yea sure maybe not in speedbal, but look at the bigger picture, speedball isn't the only type of game. in my opinion theres nothing better than being a sniper in paintball, and your trying to tell me they dont exist . just because its not a huge part in speedball doesn't mean its not there at all, dont get me wrong i like the occasional game of spedball but you got to look at the bigger picture of paintball and realise that everything is possible.

dont be so rude to someone you dont even know on a topic you abviously know nothing about!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
