A gas through CAR Stock is a must for this marker because it provides you with an easy and comfortable route for your remote line to leave your gun into your HPA or Co2 (note that you have to have a remote line for a gas through stock). I also reccommend that if you order this from ATS that you mention you want a straight Air Source Adaptor (ASA) rather than an angled one (trust me it is much more comfortable and it can get rather costly if you decide to change it later on where if you get it when you order the gun, I think it is only $10 dollars more).
ACCURRACY! This is the most accurrate gun I have ever seen! Also realism is incredible.
Buy HPA. This gun is very tough to run well on Co2.
Where to begin. This gun is my prime choice in a marker because it is soo much different than any of the competition out there. I'm not saying Tippmans or Angels arent cool or anything, It's just the satisfaction you get from changing the selector from safety to semi or full auto with the flick of a switch and sighting (or scoping) in on your prey and hearing your teammates yell "HIT THE DECK!" or "TAKE COVER!" The next Key factor is magazines and forward loaders, Hoppers anyone? You wont find one on an AT-85 unless you don't mind having a hopper and want to have extra ammunition and buy a hopper adaptor clip which inserts right where a normal magazine does except it sits more on the side rather than the top giving you less of a chance of being hit in the hopper still.Next up is accurracy. I can honestly say I dont know any gun out there that can match up to the accurracy of an ATS gun. This bad boy can shoot at 4 to 6 inch groupings at 25 meters. To me that comes in pretty handy when taking the role of a sniper.Now if this doesn't get you drooling already then there are only a few other things I can tell you that will; ball breakage 0/6000 for all ATS guns which basically means throw away your squeegee. Non-electric full auto, you heard me right throw away your batteries while your at it. Finally, Loudness, yes I said loudness and it's a good thing and only fellow ATS owners can know he satisfaction of your enemies running away from you while your opening a can of whoop@55 on their sorry buhtays.
All around, the AT-85 is a very reliable gun, and being an owner of one I know just how good this baby is, so therefore I give it a perfect *10*. Just remember, if you treat it right meaning dont bash it up and abuse it, it will treat you right as well. Now that I'm through with my review you better have another browser window pulled up ordering an ATS gun as your reading this. If not, lets hope you don't meet an ATS toting player on the field or you will wish you had taken my advice and spent the money and bought one.
10 out of 10
