Paintball
Experience:
4 years
Similar
Products Used:
Tippmann 98c <--- just as slow with out mods...
Marker Setup: Sheridan XTS with personally modified valve and bolt. Palmer Stabilizer , 14" JT one piece (.690), and an Empire Reload
Recommended
Upgrades:
Barrel, revy, and at least a fore grip; mine was drilled and tapped for a 1/4 20 bolt so i made my own handle and used it that way for while. But if you're getting serious some customization of the bolt and a custom installed E-frame
Strengths: Great on CO2 : 800 shots 9oz (before a reg), takes spyder threads, and cheap $56
Weaknesses: Stock barrel sucks arse(but then again what marker has a half decent barrel?)
Review: this is an awesome gun for anybody since with some ingenuity it can easily be tweaked to become a great paintball gun... I love it becuase of it's simplicity and the fact that one can easily machine out his own parts with simple tools... the only time i have ever had this gun break paint is the first time i used it and that was in the days of the stock barrel. there are a suprising amount of upgrades out there for thins gun if one knows anything about pipe fittings and threads... Also if you know what you are doing it is not hard to put a spyder or spyder compatable e-frame on this marker... also angel hinge triggers can be mounted on this marker with some drilling and a tap...

Edit: well i have had my fun customizing this beast and moved up to a Hybrid Blowback... still have to say that this is an awesome marker and in the hands of a mechanically inclined person can be a marker to be reckoned with... Must admit i like to look at it now because i set it up to look just like a real gun: Synthetic monte carlo stock, 32mm 2-7x tasco rifle scope, and a 16" CMI (<- don't even touch that barrel unless you wanna spend a few days pollishing the barrel out and coating it with teflon)
Conclusion: for the money this is a great gun. If I were to have to pay $100 i wouldn't have bought it cuase the stock barrel sucked and basically killed this guns out of the box performance. But once you get a new barrel, and continue to install the usual upgrades, this gun rules; i Would recommend it to anybody

Check before you buy a new barrel to see what threads it takes. I read a review that my first gun took spyder threads, and it kinda broke 3 out of 4 balls.

yeah some say they do but they don't. The sheridan does but you need to make a small adjustment to the entrance ramp. The lip on the edge of the barrel is thicker when compared to the stock barrel's so a drill, a steady hand, and a pocket knife can solve things like that in about 2 minutes :P
