Review: I found one of these markers in my proshops store room under some boxes a few days ago. I cleaned it up, got it working pretty nice and the owner let me have it at a steal of a price. I decided to give it to my brother as a late Christmas gift to go along with the Tippmann Prolite I found/assembled and gave to him too.

Pros:
~Durible Construction. This thing must have been sitting in the store room for about 5 or so years ... It had a good layer of dust on it, and the internals were gunked up. I took it apart, used rubbing alcohol to clean of the grit, and then lubed it up. It worked!
~Good Distance. This little thing seems to have some decent distance.
~Good Accuracy. Although the paint I used to test it was a little small for the barrel, I had some decent accuracy. (Better than expected.)
~Efficient. I got about 60 shots off of one 12g CO2 cartridge.

Cons:
~Doesn't like thin shelled paint. I used some Draxxus Hellfire, and it chopped up pretty good.
~Pain to clean a ball break. Once you break a ball, the splatter from inside the barrel tends to make its way into the tube containing your ammo ...causing your the majority of your stored rounds to be ruined. In addition, you need to strip the whole gun inorder to run a pull through squeege through the barrel.
~Slow action and limited ball capacity. You'll have trouble keeping up with even the oldest, cheapest semi-autos out there.
Conclusion: Over all, this is a nice toy. I got it for my brother because he rarely plays, and its something to tinker and play around with.

If you find one, get it, it's pretty cool.
