Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Similar
Products Used:
F-4 Illustrator, Spyder AMG, E-99, Shocker, and 2 Impulses
Marker Setup: '03 Black Dragun LCD - full function, WGP regulator, Check-it Trigger, Psycho Ballistic Drop Forward, Spudnuk'l 6x6 bolt, macroline hose
Recommended
Upgrades:
Regulator, any adjustable trigger, Revy (a must), barrel, maybe delrin bolt and turbo valve. Nitro or HPA is a must.
Strengths: Great bang for the $, cheap, reliable, easy to work on, rate of fire, and light.
Weaknesses: Can't change out the grips. Sear wears out. battery compartment is really tight.
Review: I was skeptical about trying out this new marker, but I must say that I am very impressed with it's price (160 plus shipping) and quality. Don't say that I don't know what I am talking about, I said the same thing when the first Impulses came out and I bought one.......look at them now, they are considered one of best markers out there.
One of the good things about this marker is that it uses spyder upgrades, which are cheap and easily accessable. I would highly consider switching to a HPA/nitro tank so that you don't have drop off when you rapid fire, plus it is more stable and consistant. I believe that M3 has done a great job on this marker, I give them 2 thumbs up! !

Again, I couldn't pass up the price.....160 plus shipping! ! ! For an electro that can shoot up to 20 BPS (yep....faster than an angel)!

I enjoy this marker way more than the AMG, E-99, not to mention my Shocker (large and heavy). I would consider it just under my Impulse (thought the Dragun can outshoot the Impulse in ROF).

I can't really complain, I got mine brand new and full function for only 160 plus shipping (can't beat that)!!
Also uses cheap 9V batteries instead of expensive off the wall batteries (AMG, E-99
Conclusion: Good marker for a great price, you get more gun for your money than buying an electro spyder and it works just the same. If you have the money....get one!

-You say: "Also uses cheap 9V batteries instead of expensive off the wall batteries (AMG, E-99[)]"
-The E-99 and AMG can use cheap 9V batteries, and the BD LCD can use 'expensive rechargeable batteries'... heck , that's what i use and i used to own an E-99... i can guess, it was just a silly mistake of yours, that's all... ;)

You say that this gun can shoot 20 bps, if you have been in paintball more than five years you would know that it's not possible For a spyder clone to shoot faster than 12 bps (no matter what the lcd says)

there, my man, you are wrong, dead wrong. i've owned a BD LCD for a while now, and they can definately shoot 20 bps... THE CYLCE RATE OF ANY SPYDER CLONE IS OVER 40... yes forty... if you have a frame that can handle it, you can have a spyder that shoots 40 bps... the cap on this frame is 20. man, you should know this. visit: www.ottersccustoms.com or www.spyderzone.net and you can get it reinforced. you should know what you're talking about, before you say it. spyder clones are actually, probably the ''fastest'' guns out there.

how do the "commentS" above say that this gun doesn't rock. it's just Brent's ONE comment. read all the comments. the gun is great! BUT, it is not made anymore. Dragun Empire now makes A VERSION of this gun.

i have a gun just like this (the e-rex pro, EXACTALLY THE FREAKING SAME THING) and using a halo B hopper, i could fire full 20 bps, except for that one break but w/e, it was crazy fun, too bad i was borrowing the hopper
