Similar

not really used any similar, use a tipman 98 and an autococker normally, but have used some eclipse guns.

Recommended
Upgrades:
none
Strengths: very cheap
Weaknesses: Screws became loose, and it fell apart.
Review: I didnt find it all that good. very nice to look at and the price was great, but for me thats where it ended. We used 5 during the day, all of them jammed, all of them worked intermitantly with the safety on, and the screws constantly came loose, and in 1 case the trigger assembly came off and the autofire lost alot of paint. If you want a cheap gun this is it, but be aware that you have to carry an alan key to tighten the screws alot. some locktight might help. Other than that no problems really but that was enough for me.
Conclusion: wouldnt recomend it, i feal its a bit too flimsy, spend a little more.
Rating:
5 out of 10

Every single marker I have ever owned needs to be gone over with loctite. If screws are coming loose on a marker, it's not the markers fault. It's the user's fault because of their poor maintenance.

I assume that when Myron says "jammed", he means the marker chopped a ball. All markers suffer from this once in a while. This is usually caused by firing faster than the hopper can feed. Just clean your marker with a squeegee and get over it!

I think this marker deserves better than the 5 Myron gave it.

well as sure as you are you are wrong when i say jammed i mean jammed im an engineer, im quite familiar with basic pnuematic systems like these. and yes i agree most guns need locktight, this one needs concrete, although to be hnest due to a few other problems the manufacturers have contacted me to say that they believe its a faulty batch. As for chop a ball didnt happen once.
