Review: Very nice marker for an serious rec player who need to be on par with the high end markers but does not have the money to spend on high end markers. Very good entry level marker for a new tourney player (me), it has a high rof, very responsive trigger, and is a very tight gun except for its height. It takes some time to get to know the marker, but that is a given with most high end markers IMHO. I have out shot the VL Revolution 12v with X-Board on many occasions, I suggest a revy with a high feed rate. Also because it is a open bolt marker, it tends to blow paintballs back up into the hopper when the hopper is running low, this increases the probability of chopping greatly. That is easily fixed with a hopper that is either a force feed or a switch that is used to trigger the paddles. The trigger is incredibly responsive, putting it on the level with the other competition grade markers, you can get it to the point where you really don't pull the trigger, it is more of a tap. If you set the trigger to a certain sweet spot, the marker will fire either in burst or full auto, that is because the trigger mechanism is really sensitive.

The BK0 has two regs on it, one is to drop the operating pressure down to the level where the LPR can operate efficiently. The primary reg should be set to 250-275, it run the best in that pressure range. The LPR is what sets the velocity, it takes a while to get it right, but once you have it in the right spot you don't have to adjust it often. As with most electro pneumatics, it is designed to run on either HPA and/or N2 systems, not CO2, the site highly recommends that you don't run CO2 through the marker as you might damage the solenoid valve (i believe that warranty says they won't repair, and/or replace the valve if it was damaged by the use of CO2). If you do run CO2 through the BK0 you should have an anti-sihphon tube on the CO2 bottle, and a reg like the Palmer Stabilizer that can with stand CO2, don't, but I high suggest that you don't use CO2 on this gun. All in all, the BK0 is an excellent marker for the serious rec play and/or starting tourn play
Conclusion: I highly recommend this marker to any body who wants a good entry level tourney gun or serious rec player.
