Review: Ok, I was playing at the local field with my VSC Phantom (best gun ever made in my oppinion) when a kid came up to me with this gun and asked if I could fix it. I looked at the kid, maybe 12 years old and said ok cause he had nothing else to play with. I opened the gun and found a rubbery old paintball shell jammed between the bolt and the body of the gun, I took that out and cleaned all the internals of the gun for the kid and put a new o-ring in the valve. I put it back together and it shot maybee 200 fps and went about 50 feet. The kid said thanks and used it for the day, at the end of the day the kid came back and asked me to fix it again, I told him I would have to take it home to fix it properly and he was delighted. When I got home I sawed off the barrel and sanded down what was left of the chameber and inserted an 11 " aluminum barrel I had lying around, this made it much more accurate but then it only shot at 150 fps max. I shot it again and the valve started to leak air everywhere so I took out the 12 gram to look at the valve. When I took it apart the valve which was made of some cheap metal and brass was completely FU&^%$. I then threw the paintball gun off my porch and it still lies there to this day, I gave the kid $20 for his old gun and told him to buy a better one.
Conclusion: This gun is made so cheaply that any attempt to modify or even fix it will ruin it forever, at approxomately $20 cdn it is a waste of money. But hell if you like throwing paintballs go ahead and buy it.

I should really come see that some time Timmeh. Maybe we can try to get it working or turn it into a grenade launcher with some PVC.
