This gun isn't a very good gun to hit the nail on the head. It's velocity is low, even when the screw is all the way in. It's barrel has porting, but the barrel still couldn't shoot the empire state building if it were 5ft in front of it. You lose a crapload of co2 when you remove the tank off of the gun too, which wastes any co2 the gun is able to save with it's low pressure chamber. The gun just decided to stop working when I had only used in maybe 10 games. Thats right, just stopped working. Of course my warrenty was out and to pay someone to fix it would cost more than the gun did. So in short, don't buy this gun, not even if your a beginner. Just buy a Black Maxx at Meyers and sve yourself $30 and a bunch of disappointment.
The gun sucks, it's not even worthy to a beginner. Want a Rebel? Just get some PVC tube, paint it black, and blow balls through it. This way is much cheaper than wasting $90 on the gun.
all u need to do is replace the spring in it, the stock spring is weak, i got a new one for moine and now i have to back the velocity all the way out to make it under 280, mine shoots fine, im not sure about yours
