Review: If any of you had read my review of the Eclipse Bushmaster, you'll know how much I liked it over my Angle and Cocker. Well, that may have changed now! There is a new gun in town :)

This A5 with the Flatline barrel is incredible. Right out of the box with the tank from my Bushy (Crossfire 68/4500 with the red label = high pressure) and no reg at all, and the gun shot at just below the field limit of 275 - it was 273 . . . . and EVERY SHOT!!!!!!!! Well, only the first was a 272, but all others right on the money of 273. And I bought another ASA Red Dot scope like on my old Cocker - and without even adjusting it, it was just about right on target. WOW!

As for in the real world of the game - ohhhhhh man oh man! I really WAS shooting all the way across the field with it - and hitting targets too. I was able to (with the help of the scope) put it into tiny holes in walls consistently, and again across the field. True, if I held it sideways, it would curve around at the end of its arc - but when you get used to that, you could place the curve where you wanted and get a guy around a corner sort of. And the reactive trigger? Again another WOW! Could fire bursts of any number I chose to. Not as accurate as single shots, but more than less it would be close enough to the first shot to make it an awesome tool. I am in love with this marker. Might just be interested in selling off my Bushy! Its THAT GOOD!
Conclusion: For starters, this should be placed in the high end semi section, cause its that good (Andrew???) - even if its not as expensive as the ones in there. I really enjoy using it, and will either sell my Bushy, or just hang it on the wall for looks. And for realistic looks, its awesome. Would be great for scenario games for sure. But as it does not look like a plastic toy raygun, don't walk around in public with it. It looks TOO real and could cause a panic.

If you get in trouble for having your marker in your hands, you shouldn't be there.
