Review: I bought mine for $180 as my first gun. I figured it was cheap and should be a solid gun. WRONG!. It ended up bein a pain in the butt. I go out on the field get a couple kills and am pretty happy. After a bit it became pretty obious that this was an incredibly slow gun and a pain to use.
Conclusion: Its a solid gun for a beginner who wants to snipe and stay out of combat for the most part because of the easy aiming. But for a beginner that doesn't know what they want to do or wants to play the front or middle i would strongly suggest against it. it is definately not a tournament gun and cannot be upgraded to be a strong competetor either. The trigger is the main problem but the limted uprades is a real pain along with the hard to take apart.

Hope that helps

You must not understand the reasons that peoples buy this marker. It is not intended as a speedball marker. It is mainly intended for woodsball playing. It can also be used on large hyperball fields where you can stay in the back and pick opponents off. It is not made for a fast "spray and pray" playing style. It is a gun for a beginner and a person who likes to snipe and conserve there paint for when they really need it. In my opinion, your review is a waste of peoples time and shouldn't be considered a review at all. So if anybody has read Switchblade69's review please disregard it. If you want more information on this gun then contact me.

This is not a speedball gun its a ranged woodsball or scenerio gun.

I've been to web sites that have pages of barrels for the pro-carbine.
I have an expansion chamber for my gun, and a pro-1 barrel also
I can also effectively use this in speed-ball.
The rate of fire is 12fps.......thats not exactly slow if you ask me
if you think the pro-carbine is hard to disassemble, your not going to enjoy taking apart any other gun......its the easiest thing to do for goodness sake
this gun is durable, accurate, consistent and reliable......(in my mind atleast)

Buddy, I use this gun in speedball and woodsball, and I always am in the thick of action with high kill scores. I don't know what you're review was based on.

this review wasnt helpful or truthful.i would be making some pretty mean comments but i am not.but this review is wrong.i bought mine with a stock right on it brand new for cheap.it is very reliable and about field stripping this guns inners and working mechanism is almost identical to an a5(if you just remove a few parts the a5s inners just slide out the back)i bought this gun after using a5s and pro customs and even top of the line angels and none compare

Dispute:
Firstly, it’s not meant to be a "tourney" gun. And secondly, if you look around, you will find plenty of upgrades, and people who can do work on the gun for you; so that you get better rates of fire and pretty much what ever else you want out of the gun. It accepts A-5 barrel threads, and on the Pro/Carbine owners group there are people who can put an R/T on it, along with helpful tips to do some easy, DIY low-cost upgrades right at home. APP offers double triggers; and even with just this, you can get better rates of fire. It sounds like you just didn’t do you homework. If you’re looking for a "tourney" gun, do some research, before you buy something that’s not meant for what you want.
