Review: -this gun is so bad that it makes it good. the kick back is just disgusting however it can be used to the advantage. if you can find the sweet spot on the pull, the gun will actually become full auto... which is illegal in tourneys (even this trick).
-it does not chop. instead of chopping a paintball, a ball gets pinched between the bolt and the breech which ends up jamming the gun. the first time this happend, i thought maybe the sear had come loose and was clicking with the hammer but later observations showed that there was a ball jammed in there and this continued to happen several other times. wouldnt be a good thing if you were going up to bunker someone and all of a sudden ur gun stops shooting. i would rather chop and spray them to death. you have a better chance of having them called out if you get lucky and put a good sized mark on.
Conclusion: this is an ok gun... especially for the price. i would definately get it over a spyder even though it is made in a little bit less quality, it is also cheaper and M3 has to save money somewhere to sell so cheap. but overal better than a spyder. however some reviews that i have read say stuff like "why pay a grand for a gun when u can get the same thing for less thatn $100" this doesnt even compare. there is a reason this gun is less than $100 and others are $1000+. theres a big difference in the feel (kickback for 1) the speed and accuracy. anyone who says that obviously has not shot a high class gun.

overall this is a good marker. i have it for backup but i never HAD to use it but have. usually i just practice walking the trigger on it because it makes a cool noise wen u pull the trigger.
