Products Used:
NPS Icon-E- pretty similar gun, but the trigger has a stronger pull to it, and it maxes at 13 bps.
Tippmann 98 Custom- Good gun when upgraded, but it takes alot to upgrade.
Marker Setup: M3 2003 Dragun Fire LCD, Evlution II hopper, 14" CMI QB Tru-Flight barrel, 12oz CO2
Recommended
Upgrades:
HPA, Delrin bolt, e-hopper, new barrel, and new trigger.
Strengths: Very fast, great gun for what you pay for it.
Weaknesses: CO2 problems when you play in the cold.
Review: This is a great gun; even better when you upgrade it. It's pretty inexpensive and out-performs all the guns i've tried in that price range. It shoots very fast, but with CO2, the bolt doesn't blow back all the way every now and then when it's cold. The stock barrel is pretty accurate, but my stick squeegee couldn't clean out the forward part because it is a larger bore than the rear part. The stock trigger has a wobble to it, but that's because it doesn't have a spring behind it, therefore it has a much lighter pull. With a little effort (or a new adjustable trigger) you can hit the sweet spot and pour out 15+ bps on semi. The aluminum bolt isn't bad, but it seems to move slower when it's cold, so i'd recommend a delrin bolt just to avoid the occasional chops. The electronics work great, though it is a little annoying that there are no user presets- every time you turn it on, the semi is set to 15 bps and the auto is set to 10. Also the safety is a nuisance to work because you gotta hold it down for 5 seconds to turn it on, so i usually just leave my gun active, which, in combination with such a light trigger pull, has caused me to have to clean out my barrel condom several times.

I was planning on using this as an entry level gun and buying a more expensive gun when I had gained more experience, but with just a few upgrades, this marker has held its own against Mags and Cockers.
Conclusion: I'd give this gun a 9 because it's great for the money, but gets kinda cranky with CO2. If you run nitro, I don't think you'll have any problems.

Any gun will have problems with co2 in the cold, as that is when co2 is turned into a liquod as it becomes colder.

The CO2 is already liquid... the cold just doens't let it fully expand. However, this gun has more problems than most blowbacks because of the higer rate of fire. I was simply suggesting that anyone who buys this gun should run N2 through it instead of CO2.
