Recommended
Upgrades:
First thing- Revy. Semi and 3 shot burt work fine without it, but full auto will chop balls for sure without one. If you feel like spending the money, a new barrel would be the second best upgrade.
Strengths: Fast ROF, Straightforward interface, Well balanced, Inexpensive, Easy to break down, mouse click trigger pull.
Weaknesses: Large feed tube, cant see LEDs in sunlight, strange cocking mechanism, no auto-off feature.
Review: Right out of the box I was impressed with the Silver Bullet's sleek design and milling. As I hooked it up ad fired it, I was well impressed with the rate of fire. The gun proved accurate, and the stock barrel is sufficient enough to keep using it. I am sure accuracy would improve with a 12, maybe a 14 incher. FYI, the Silver Bullet uses Spyder Threads.
My thoughts toward this gun was that it is a cool looking Spyder E-99. One MAJOR gripe I have about this gun is the companys failure to solder a wire well enough to keep it attached to its proper part. After light use, the gun suddenly failed to shoot. After much frustration I took it completely apart and examined its innerts only to find that I needed to re-soldier a wire. It works just fine now. Also. WHO MAKES THIS GUN? I cannot find a single scrap of information on this gun online, and the manual that came with it was inadequate..scratch that, the manual is only good for somthing that you wipe your errr.. nose with. Side note- Because of personal preference, I chose to remove the sight rail. I reccommend the same to everyone else.
Conclusion: This gun is a great value. I got it for $180. It doesnt shoot quite as true as my old impulse, but for half the price, why NOT go for the Silver Bullet.

The maker of this gun is " National Paintball." They own 32 degrees and psycho ballistics. If you still can, trade out ur 32 for a psycho. It shoots faster and doesnt have as big of a problem with CO2. Its basically the same gun with the same name but its upgraded more for the same price i like.

wait a second.... if you have an imp, why would you want to spend 180 on a silver bullet instead of upgrading your impy? The silver bullet might not suck all that bad, but it seems odd that you would rather spend 180 on a low-end gun as opposed to something else.
