2 years
Products Used:
any spyders ( this gun is made to be compatible with 99% of spyder parts)
Marker Setup: M3 black dragun compact
14in smartparts new style teardrop (a freakin awsome barrel)
32* Basic loader
9oz co2
in order of importance: barrel, agitated hopper, spring kit, maybe bottomline but I like the compact set up
Strengths: cheap, frigin fast, easy to carry, and looks like a paintball uzi, spyder compatible
Weaknesses: Pinches balls, leaks co2, no beaver tail
Review: I love this little guy. He's my piece. I also have a tippman but this is my newer gun.

A few things about ball pinching: The elbow loads the balls too far ahead of the bolt, so when a ball loads, it will roll backward to the bolt. when this happens it creates enough space for another ball to partially load itself into the chamber. Then when you fire the gun 1 of 3 can happen: (1) The bolt fires and slices the ball, then you have to field clean
(2) the bolt fires and the ball gets pinched in between the elbow and bolt, the gun will uncock, then you got to cock it again, yes it gets old (3) the bolt fires and the partailly loaded ball gets pushed up a little ( you want this to happen). I've almost got this problem solved so e-mail me for info.

If you do not buy or make a beaver tail count on: (a) losing an eye (b) breaking your glasses or (c) cracking your mask. basically buy or make one.

This gun does leak co2, but me being the engineer that I am Just slapped an extra tank o-ring on BAM problem solved.

Now for the hopper info. In my opinion you really dont NEED an agitated hopper. My basic loader shakes so much when I shoot the gun it loads almost like a revvy. Its funny cuz my brother has a revvy and he out shoots it, but I have a basic hopper and outshoot it less that him. lol. P.S. revvys suck. I mean really people waste money on these suposedly faster loading hoppers but who can hold a gun still that shoots 10bps? I cant. The whole gun shakes when you shoot at 10 bps, which shakes your hopper which loads your balls. just dont overfill your hopper and my idea will work.
I would only buy a halo B if I ever needed an agitated hopper, its the only one that loads fast enough( if you need it) to make it worth any money at all. Maybe Im crazy but Im also cheap. haha.


Conclusion: I would buy this gun if I were a beginner or intermediate. There are some problems but just use some brain power to fix them. If you have no brain power, cant figure out the problems, or just plain lazy then e-mail me at I will answer cuz Im cool like that. or maybe u could just email me cuz im cool. i dunno whatever you want. i Give this gun a 9 because of the problems I had to fix. It is definatly worth buying though.
