Black BKO, 2003 body with O-ring detent and diamond milling
PDS (Paint Detection System, 2-sided anti-chop eye)
Full Freak barrel system
None needed, but you'll buy them anyway because it is fun to upgrade :)
Small, light, fast, consistent, reliably, quiet, you name it
If you outshoot your hopper, you can chop balls.
I had my doubts when I ordered my BKO. I was worried that at such a low price, they would have to cut corners to save money. Well, when it arrived and I shot it, my worries faded away. This marker shoots great, and it is now the lightest marker I own. It feels great in my hands and is a joy to play with! I finally have a marker I can just pull out and play with and know I will get high performance and reliability combined with simplicity and rugged design. Thank you ICD! My other markers are probably going to be sold now :)
Bottom line, this marker has everything you need in an electropneumatic marker. What is amazing is the price! For under 300 dollars you get performance that rivals that of the most expensive markers out there. This is the first paintgun I have seen on the market that is affordable enough to make sense for a recball and woods player who doesn't want to spend much money, yet high enough performance for a tourney player. This paintball gun covers all the bases! It's a do-it-all marker!
At this low price, you might worry about whether people will think it is cool. Let me tell you, you don't have to worry about that! I have some very rare and unusual custom paintball guns, and sometimes they attract attention. However, whenever I have my BKO with me, nobody cares about any of the other guns, they just want to see the BKO, test-fire it, hold it, touch it, taste it, hug it, etc... This just might be the first affordable paintball gun that is respected like an expensive gun!
Anyway, I've shot a lot of paintball guns, and none strike me as being significantly better than the BKO. The only guns I've liked better have been WAY more expensive, and the difference was not enough to justify the price difference. Honesly, all hype aside, once you get into high-performance electros, they all perform pretty close. So, I'm going to have to give this product a 10, because it's hard to imagine how you could get such performance for such a low price! Let's call it the Best Bargain in Paintball!
