Review: I love this gun. It has wowed me since the day I got it. I am still learning new ways to use it on the field. When I first started playing with it I couldn't shoot as fast as I would have liked to and I chopped like five times that day. The trigger to me is hard to sweet spot if you put your fingers in the conventional shooting position. I've adapted since then. I put my middle finger on the tip of the very bottom of the trigger and my index on the middle where it comes forward, this allows me to tuck my arm in tighter and my wrist doesn't stick out. So far I've worked out that little problem but the bolt I couldn't fix. I was using fresh evil paint with the Cobra bolt and it chops continually. When I compared the Cobra bolt to the stock bolt I noticed that the edge around the front (which touches the next ball in the feed neck) of the stock bolt was a little more tapered than the Cobra. The Cobra bolt had kind of a sharp edge to it which chopped the next ball ready to be fired. You see when the bolt reloads and moves forward it pushes the ball above the one about to be fired back up into the feed neck a slight bit. brittle paint and a sharp edged bolt don't mix. The stock bolt if fine and works just as good as the Cobra.
Conclusion: I'm going to give the Mamba a ten because It is very practical in every area in a paintballer's needs. The trigger and the bolt are nothing big and were easily fixed. After I tinkered with it I got it to suit my playing style. This marker has staying power, I'll own it for a while.
