I am 30-something, so I really don't get blown away by products. I recognize there are numerous good guns out there. I have to say that in the $200 price range, I definately prefer the F4. It is just so steady. Steady shooting, steady performance, and reliable. I have never had any problems with it. NONE.....All moving parts are internal, so less cleaning is needed. It is easy to take apart and clean/oil though. If you take care of this gun, it will not let you down. If mine was lost or stolen, I would buy another one in a heart beat. (Hope I didn't just put a jinx on me) There is a "trigger attachment" that comes with the gun and makes the tringer wider and more confortable. I didn't tighen mine down enough and the 3rd time I went out and played, it fell off. I kept playing of course. I sent ACI a note asking them if I could get a replacement. They sent me TWO at NO CHARGE. Great service from the company. That is a huge plus. +++++
I waited to upgrade my barrel for some stubborn reason. I went and decided on the J&J ceramic and I have been thrilled with the set up even more than originally. The number of barrels out there for this gun is less than many other makers, but there are still plenty. Get a better barrel and you will be a paint throwing fool ! ! ! ! !
Great gun in the $200 price range. (less actually) You won't regret purchasing this gun. You take care of this gun and it will take care of you and take out the enemy.
