Review: I just used my AT-85 at the Oklahoma D-Day Scenario game last weekend and I was getting hits that were amazing me. I would fire and think to myself "there is now way I hit him" and then suddenly up would go the marker and he would walk off the field. This happened again and again. Players were constantly coming up to me and asking how I liked it, how much it costed, what is it etc etc etc. When I was running around in the hot Oklahoma sun I was really happy with the weight. I was using my autococker in the morning since my squads mission needed more stealth, But when the afternoon cam around and Wisconsin Death Trip was cut loose I switched to my AT-85 and ruled the airfield. I noticed a big difference with the weight then since my cocker is kinda a pig. Do not I repeat do not overfill the foreloaders. It becomes extremely hard to get the balls to fall into the magazine. I think they should have made the foreloaders opening a little bigger. The range is incredible. I think ATS is kinda ripping people off with their prices though. Not so much on the base model of the AT-85 but with the accessories. I purchased a carry handle from an airsoft store for $50 compared to ATS's $150 pricetag. I also purchased an M4 stock on Ebay for $25 and a gas thru adapter from funsupply.com for $35 w/ shipping. ATS charges $100 for those two parts and refuse to sell the gas thru adapter separately if u already have an M4 stock. A real M4 CAR stock works just fine. www.funsupply.com are the guys who make the gas thru adapter. You will have to email the guy asking for the part but he will sell it to ya no problem.
Conclusion: If u can get past the ATS high priced accessories it is an awesome marker! I love mine. If you don't mind some basic maintenence u will love yours. I give it a 9 due to the high prices.
