Review: This is a great gun that belongs to a friend of mine. Although I'd take my JT any day of the week over this, this is still a great gun, and can be had for VERY cheap, now that the 03's should be coming out. It looks very good and is reliable, but is heavy and kind of uncomfortable to hold.

The field strip is kinda hard to do, and my friend's got stuck (but that was user error), so we had to take it to my dad, and he used this ultra-strength electric drill to unscrew it.

The grips are WEIRD. I am telling you now. My friend kind of likes them, but I can't stand them. There is almost no space inside the trigger guard, and the grips are chunky, making them hard to hold well. Combined with the sheer heaviness of the gun, it hurt my hands after a day of play.
Conclusion: Good gun that can be gotten cheap. But heavy and uncomfortable to hold. Look into a JT or Rainmaker if you want something similar, but better.
