Paintball
Experience:

Marker Setup: 14" 32 Degrees Carbon Fiber barrel
Evolution II hopper
Crossfire 88/4500 nitrogen tank
Recommended
Upgrades:
Above all else, I'd recommend a better barrel and regulator to overcome the problem with accuracy/consistency.
Strengths: The gun is very fast and reliable.
Weaknesses: Accuracy is difficult to maintain due to poor air regulation.
Review: I used this gun for a scenario game a couple of weeks ago. Overall I was happy with its performance; but I do have a few issues. Chronographing it was pure hell. I wasn't expecting this to be a problem as I'm using a reliable Crossfire compressed air tank to fuel the gun; but the velocity fluctuated wildly shot to shot. I hope that replacing the stock regulator will overcome this problem. As it stands though, it's very difficult to perform anything similar to a snapshot since the parabolics are so unpredictable. Horizontal accuracy, however, was right on target: the after-market barrel I used seemed to complement the gun really well. The hair trigger, once you're used to it, also does its job quite well. I was able to lay down supressive fire as efficiently as anyone on the field, the gun never skipping a beat. As far as the different firing modes go, if you can shoot fast, you might as well leave the gun on semi-auto since the full-auto mode is only 8-12 bps. Chopping balls was also a non-issue. The Evolution II hopper, coupled with the gun's vertical feed allowed me to shoot nearly two cases of paint (Kick'n premium) without a single ball break. For that I am infinitely delighted. The only thing I don't understand is the design of the sight rail. The gun comes with a removable, raised sight rail which, if you actually mounted a sight to it, would be totally useless. There's simply not enough clearance between the hopper and the rail.
Conclusion: This is an all around good recreational paintball gun, especially for the price. It's very fast and so far I've had no air leaks or mechanical problems to speak of.
