Review: I've been using the gun for a short time now and I made a HUGE mistake by stripping one of the screws. DON'T MAKE THIS MISTAKE! BE CAREFUL!!! However the screws being stripped was my own personal negligence. he screws are very low quality as well as the allen keys. If you have access to new screws jump on it and I recommend you purchase some good allen wrench's with the gun if you are serious about the gun and your commitment.

Other than this the gun performs phenomenally. I'm a woods baller and I kind of consider myself a "sniper"/ hunter and I really like the accuracy I can achieve with my current set-up. The noise made from the gun is made mainly from the bolt and even the quietest barrel can not truly silence the gun to acceptable levels. However when 1 shot (ahem or 1 burst) is one kill it doesn't matter that much. Make sure you thoroughly clean your gun when you first purchase it as it comes with a very horrible oil job and their are some metal fragments within the clam shell occasionally. I can obtain a good range (though that often matters as I play in thick natural brush) and excellent accuracy with my set up though I believe my barrel does it all. I don't feel I have to stress even more (as other posts have done that well enough) how much you need to replace the stock barrel.
Conclusion: This was a warning about the screws! BE CAREFUL WITH THEM FOR GOODNESS SAKE!!

Hey, if you strip out your screws all you have to do is call Tippmann and ask them for some new ones. They have LEGANDARY customer support. The valve on my son's gun went bad. They UPS'ed us a new one free of charge, no questions asked. He striped out a bunch of his screws. They UPS'ed us new ones free of charge no questions asked.
