Period of

Less than a month2 of 3 people found this review helpful.

More than 5 years
Products Used:
spyder compact, Piranha G-2
Marker Setup: PMI piranha w./ Dye Freak Barrel, 2K ricochet motorized loader, Dye Izon sight
new barrel, maybe a stronger drop forward, definitely a stronger air hose
Strengths: well it looks pretty, it also has a nice grip and balance
Weaknesses: the drop forward breaks easily... the bolts kind of hard to pull back
Review: I received my introduction with the ACI SInister by assisting my friend with his paintball field where he had purchased about 25 gun kits with the Sinister as the field marker. He has a heavily wooded field with no speedball courses and no real open areas besides a ditch in the middle of the field. I remember thinking to myself when I saw the paintjob... "good thing my gun's black". My friend expected that it wouldn't be too big of a problem because everyone would have brightly colored markers. Well as the months went by word got out about the field among the talent pool at our high school. That's when the trouble started. More advanced players started showing up and as the gaming went on we found that the Sinister wasn't very durable. 18 of the 25 guns' drop forwards cracked and because the warranty on the gun really sucks we never did end up getting them fixed. the barrel was long enough but its bore size was too small and the gun started to chop MASSIVE paint in the summer when the paintballs expanded. In addition two of the guns' gas line snapped off the port reducer and we never did manage to fix that. Finally he gave up and had to buy a set off tippy 98s for the field.

As of now he is $5000 dollars in the hole TO HIS PARENTS
Conclusion: If your a beginner then this gun is alright, but for the price ($150) I would just get either a tippman 98 or a spyder TL plus. If your a field owner then heed the above message of doom.
