Experience:

Products Used:
Tippmann 98- No contest. JT Excellarator- Please! Spyder Imagine- Haven't used it since I picked up my GX-4.
Marker Setup: Spyder Imagine with- Dye Boomstick 14", Bob Long Cyclone bolt, VL Rev 12v with X-board. ANS GX-4 w/ 14" AA, 12" Freak fronts, 12v w/Xboard, and 68ci 3000psi ACI tank.

Upgrades:
Marker is ok stock. But the stock bolt will scratch the body internally. I installed all Free flow internals, Free flow back block, oracle bolt(It's delrin, no need to lubricate and treats the insides much,much better), Kapp twisted cocking rod, and 03 Dye stickies.
Strengths: Shoots paint as if it were laser guided. ROF is awesome.
Weaknesses: Mine leaked just a little, no biggie though. Read below for more on this.
Review: This thing is sweet!! I picked this gun up about 3-4 weeks ago, and let me tell you, the finish and quality is second to none. I swear you will look at it for hours just admiring the way it looks. But looks don't mean a thing if it's a rat, so here it goes. I got mine off of Ebay for $525.00, which just can't be beat. Just to let you know, the gun now comes with a 2pc 14" barrel from the factory, not with the 8" that's on the factory website. I called ANS to confirm, and they have been shipping the 14" barrels for a few months now. Anyway, I took the gun down to my local paintball shop, got the air, and had it timed to my liking. Gassed up, went to the chrono station/target area and 282,280,282,281,281,280. I took five more shots and 281,281,280,282,281. Good God Almighty!!! I almost cried. My previous guns never could shoot something as consistent as this gun did. I mean that's +/- 2fps. I shot it a few more times and that's when I started to hear a hiss. Took it back to the airsmith and said there was a little leak in the regulator, a little teflon, done end of story. The rest of the day went without a hitch. I thought I died and went to paintball heaven. Done with the love story, but I think you know where I'm getting at here.

The gun shoots straight, the rate of fire is awesome, I can get to about 8-10 bps with the stock trigger. Let me put it this way, an Oracle is about 800-950.00, an Angel Speed is about 900-1100.00 and a timmy will run you anywhere between 1100-1600.00. The Oracle is a little lighter as is the Angel and Timmy. The Angel and Timmy will outshoot the GX-4, but only by 2-3 bps, and practically goes punch for punch with the Oracle, but I'll throw this gun in there and it will hold it's own and then some for 300-1000.00 less! The gun has top-notch pnuematics, very nice trigger frame, and a body to die for. I've been to the field 2 more times since that first day, and not one single chop with about 4 cases through it. No leaks, no chops , no downtime, nothing. I've upgraded it with a few things and it just gets better ( refer to upgrades ). This thing smokes, enough said.
Conclusion: Would highly recommend this to anyone, newbie or pro. The gun comes set and ready to go with drop forward, on/off ASA, hinge trigger, and a 14" barrel. Just add Hopper ( electric, you will need it ) air tank, and paint and your ready to roll. Excellent job by ANS for providing a gun that the regular joe's can afford and providing us with the money saved up for field fees and paint and tournament fees. Believe me, you will enjoy it as much as I did and your wallet eill thank you for it. No gun is perfect, but this is as close as you can get without pulling a heist or selling your first born to get it. 10++++++++++

your trying to say that a gx4 shoots almost the same speed as a timmy or angel? what on earth are you smoking man!? nowadays guns reach 20+bps and i know sure as hell u cant do that on a cocker thats not electro.i mean i can outshoot cockers with my 01 classic timmy. dont get me wrong i love the gx4 to death but i think u need to get the facts right on some things.

lol yea i agree but accually the angel speed can reach 33.3+ bps. I saw it on their web site. So yea I think your a little bit off. But what upgrades can you get for the gx4 to increase the bps?

older angels shot at 12bps full auto or around there.
I think he meant an angel shooting semi-auto.

If you did read the article, I said 8-10 bps on the gx-4 once I got used to it and put in practice time with the gun. True I was off with the rate of fire when comparing it with the likes of a Timmy or Angel, but I never put in the practice time to try and get one of those guns up into the 18-22bps range. To get these guns working to their max takes time and a lot of trigger practice, you got to put your time in, you know what I'm saying? Plus I just got into the Tourney scene at the time where rof is big time needed. Some people will shoot faster than others and some won't. What I wrote down for those guns is what I could get them firing at at that time.

eh... I'd like to see some one do more than 17bps with out the use of ramping, turbo, bursts, etc. just plain good ol' tourny legal semi.
