-Definitely the twin hose feed, it will make ur balls go twice as fast
-a new drop forward, i guess the one it comes with is fine, but others may perfer a larger one.
-some people would prefer a bigger barrel, but i like the one it comes with.
-good trigger pull
-compares well to blow back markers
-Sort of loud
-Mine is chrome, so its pretty shiny
Well, one year ago, i would have given the gun like a 3. A year ago it was not working good at all. Leaking a lot, double feeding, stuff like that. I was stupid and such a newbie when it came to maintaining a gun. I had to take it to the local pro-shop like 4 times. One time it was for getting the cup-seal replaced. Another time was for the gas valve. And one time i took it in and they said that the expansion chamber was broke. O well. (I actually prefer it vertically fed). But I was like hey, why all this stuff happening? The guy there asked me "hey man, well, do you ever actually maintain your gun or lubricate it?" I was like, "uh, whats lubrication?" He asked me if i had ever field-stripped it and i had never even heard of that before. What i had done was just take out like all the screws and look at the the parts and mess with them. i scratched up the cup seal and gas valve so they had to be replaced. That was my fault not the guns. I forgot why the expansion chamber was broken, that was not my fault to my knowledge. After learning how to field strip and lubricate it from the guy at the pro-shop and from my friend it has just been working fine since then. Other things didn't help it working like dropping it in the sand. And well ya, ever since i did clean it out and lubricated it, it really has been working great. It is very accurate, i really like the the 12 inch quiet riot barrel it works great; I like the way it preforms even more on my excellerator 6.0. When i put "heavy" above u probably thought i was stupid. but the truth is i actually like heaviness in guns because it adds to the realism of a real war so i don't mind the fact that its heavy. I like the way it looks but that doesn't do a freaking thing to the way u preform in a game, or how it performs period. The trigger pull is very nice. I thought it was awesome but then i got my excellerator and its not as great as it used to be but it still is nice compared to most all blow back style markers. My vl200 was having a hard time keeping up with it and i would occasionally chop due to the slowness of the gravity fed hopper and no agitation but now that i got a revolution 12volt w/ x-board i use that instead it works fine. The drop forward it comes with makes it pretty stable but a bigger one wouldn't hurt. I think it has performed good if not better compared to most all blow back guns. I must say i used to think that it was very loud when i would play with my friends but ever since i played at my friends church i saw that it wasn't so loud after all. But really, does it matter how loud it is? Not really especially if you are like me a play mostly speed-ball. I don't know if its the fact that mines chrome but it is very shiny. i have been pretty disappointed to hear people say stuff like" ur gun gave ur position away" or "i didn't see you till i saw the reflection of your gun". But if your a more speed-ball player this gun is fine but if your more of a wood-ball type of a player, then just don't get it in silver, maybe green or black would be better.
My final conclusion is that you make room for this gun. Compared to other guns this one is at a great price for how it performed. It is a good gun for most all players. I think it is a very good starter gun. Just keep it lubed and clean and u should be ok. To be short, overall great gun, but it is not perfect. That is why im giving it a 9.
-just a note, i edited it because i though it wasn't helpful and was dumb. hope you like it.
9 out of 10

If it double feeds, the ball detent is probably gone. I rebuilt the one on my Rebel. Jsut remove the screw and the spring. Put an o ring in the screw hole on the ball detent, put the detent in, then an o ring on top of it. Happy fragging
