UrBaN cAvEmAn Sunday, June 29th, 2003
Period of
Product Use:
1 year
2 years
Marker Setup: F4, 12 inch Zero-grav, PMI Xchamber, WGP Flame drop forward, 68/5K, and one of those neato guage things
Barrels sucks $hit. Get a ehopper such as a halo or evo2
Strengths: The main thing is everything is internal. Very solid and durable marker.
Weaknesses: Barrel. WIll break down if not cleaned properly. Hard to sell.
Review: This is a very realiable marker but take note: IF IT IS NOT CLEANED RIGHT IT WILL EAT ITSELF. This gun defines "canibal" for paintball markers. First thing you will start to notice is that it will motorboat for nearly a full minute. I bought one with a bad batch of sears in it so i had to get that replaced. Then I pulled the bolt back and the sight rail and all flat out ripped off my gun leaving the broken bolts still stuck inside. You must take care of this thing. One other thing probolly the biggest drawback is that if your i need of money, you wont get but $80 back out of it regardless of how many upgrades are on it. Dont believe me??? Go to and type "F4 illustrator" in the search and see what it brings up. Ive seen them as low as $23 with 42 mins left. BUT on the bright side that means you can buy a F4 on ebay for 23 green so i guess it pays off. Also there are not many upgrades at all for this but who needs them anyway. All you would need of any of them is a new bolt, barrel, and a ehopper. ACI needs to do something with that trigger also. My friend has a spyder SE and the full on it is 1/4 of this.
Conclusion: Great gun if you plan to keep it. If not then dont put a whole lot of upgrades in it. Keep it clean and use lots of grease on that bolt. If your new and dont want a gun everyone else has then this is your best bet. Get it and enjoy it.
One other little trick i learned in case ur intrested: If you like the looks of the XP model or whatever the one is with the flames, then go to aci's website and say that you bought that model and need another body cuz urs got scratched up or something. Works and you get a nifty looking F4.
