Review: This marker is a Spyder / Pirahna with about $100 - $150 of upgrades. It comes with a good barrel, a huge low pressure chamber, an expansion chamber and a regulator. The first thing to do is get rid of the regulator assembly. The design is horrible, mine leaked after 3 days of use. The instruction sheet (3 peices of paper stapled together) says that "Do to tight tolerences, you may experience a slight stick in the trigger. Oil trigger assembly with 2-3 drops of air gun oil and the problem will wear itself in within 200-500 shots." I have fired over 1700 and it still sticks. This is another design problem. On day 8 the oring in the bottom of the expansion chamber blew out. Once I got the oring out of the chamber I noticed 2 things 1) The oring was the wrong size and was gouged. (nice job Enigma) and 2) Enigma claims that the expansion chamber is a six chambered expansion chamber, it is not, it is a 1 chamber expansion chamber. Enigma says that the use an air scrubber system... their air scrubber system is a peice of copper that keeps junk out but also slows air velosity, not the best idea considering I have to turn the gun all the way up just to get it to shoot @ 265 fps and that's the max that it will shoot at. I pulled the "air scrubber" system out and now the gun will do almost 330 fps... Big Difference. Here is the most important thing that I can stress. There is NO customer support for this product. I have tried to email the company 3 different times with no response. I called information to get their phone number and there is no listing. I have got the marker all fixed now, but I am an air smith so it make it real easy. I would not recommend this gun to anyone unless you like constant headaches.
Conclusion: I think this gun is a cheap rip-off of Spyder / Pirahna markers. They put the extras on that you want but all the extras a poor in quality. I have had this gun for a month and I have had more problems than with my first Spyder which is 2 1/2 years old.
