Review: I decided to step up from the BKO to a B2K3, not knowing what I was getting into....

I got home with it, and READ THE MANUAL! Most people I know never do this, they just gas up and rip... so READ IT!

Then I gassed it up, and made sure the HPR was at 225-275 PSI like it was defaulted.
(it is wise to purchase a low pressure tank for this marker, so it doesn't have to work as hard and will give you better performance and more shots.) and The LPR is preset, so I left it alone...

Wow

The trigger can read your mind! I accidently shot my foot while screwing on the hopper, so its really freaking light! And with 4 trigger setting points, were talking serious adjustment here!
FAST! QUIET! And with a Good paint to barrel match some great accuracy can be obtained. I should have not gotten the AA but it looks very good on there anyway... I bought Dye stickys to show off and I was disappointed. I should have known. If you have small hands, keep the stock grips, they feel great! Also, a Drop is not really needed. the grip really isn't a 45, more like a 25 degree, so the LONG drop was a stupid waste once again... I will unfortuanately have to put down the placement of the HPR.. It is too close to the trigger guard for some people, but not me.

The guy below me is a little weird.... It does not sit tall, and its got a low rise at stock! That picture at the top of the screen is wrong. I have seen many B2K2s at my shop and they all have low rises!

One more thing, for you egg users you need to sand down the neck on it a little. Its too tight at first...

it's somewhat consistent, and a reg is not in my plan because of it. I put the stickys on my 98 instead, and kept the small grips on my B2k3.

Most people buy this marker for firepower, and you'll get it. But this is not really the M249 of paintball guns. I bought it because I play VERY tight and close, and the 98 was too long. If your looking for a tight and light marker this may be for you! The ROF is just a bonus that I rarely use...

Keep it clean! No oil should ever see the bolt, and the electronics should be dry and not crimped...


You can get PDS, but I choose not to for a very weird reason... I sight down the side of the marker, and with it there you can't... If you've got a revy or Rico, then go for it, but if you've got an Egg or Halo (need better detents for Halo) then you probably won't want it.
And its probably one of the lightest electros out there....
Conclusion: Conclusion? It depends who you are. Some people cannot stand the small grips or the reg being tight to the frame, and some love it.

You get a low pressure marker at a worthy cost. And because of the Feel and size, I will never switch. There is nothing like it.

The look, the feel, the power:
