Strengths: Since some people may not know exactly what the Blazer is, I will start by saying it operates just like an Autococker (the system was actually originally developed by Glenn Palmer) It is a closed bolt, semi-automatic paintball gun. Its advantages are many. First, it is small and light. Much more compact then an autococker. It is also a very efficient gun and runs wonderfully off of CO2 or compressed air. It also comes with the best barrel money can buy....STOCK! Palmers barrels are known for there effective accuracy and effective range. I personally love the stock trigger, it's a little heavy and long compared to some guns, but I actually prefer it that way and have no trouble with high rates of fire. Since it is a closed bolt auto cocking paintgun it uses a low pressure regulator, ram, and 4 way just like an Autococker does. These are some of the most commonly upgraded parts on the Autococker, and many people upgrade them using Palmers own parts. This gun comes stock with these parts which are truly the best there is. It has the rock reg, quickram, and quickswitch 4 way. The way I look at it is that you can buy an Autococker, add a good barrel and Palmer pnuematics and spend $550. Or, you can get a stock Blazer, add a Stabelizer reg for $500 and you gain a better in line regulator, smaller size, and lighter weight.
Weaknesses: Not a lot. Some people don't like the two stage trigger, but you get used to it and I don't mind it at all. Also, there isnt 45 frame option available yet, but I have heard it may be in the works. The only other disadvantages are that there are few upgrades for it outside of Palmers (not really a disadvantage seeing as how it doesn't need anything that Palmers can't do for you) and that if it does ever need serviced, it has to be sent back to Palmers in California. Oh yeah, it takes a while to get a new Blazer from Palmers, so if your not a patient person you may want to look for a used one.
Conclusion: I would recomend this gun to anyone who wants a top quality gun at a reasonable price. I think dollar for dollar it is a better value then the Autococker. My particular Blazer is anodized Blue (looks NICE!) with a standard brass barrel and a male stabelizer. I run it off CO2 and it is incredibly consistent and very accurate. For me, this is the perfect gun. I also like the Autococker...but it gets expensive upgrading them. I'm not a big fan of the electro guns as I prefer the feel of a mechanical trigger. One last thing....there is something special about owning a Palmer gun and untill you do, you won't understand. But....once you do, you'll find it hard to go back.
