Review: Ok, I manage a paintball store here in San Antonio, and I played a couple of games with the Raven Nexion when It first came in, and I thought it was awesome. First, How the hell do you not know why it wont shoot even when It's cocked? Its a freiken blowback. It only has like 4 moving parts besides the trigger: the bolt, the solenoid, the sear, and the hammer. So if its cocked, then your not activating the solenoid which clicks the sear which releases the hammer. That means you have a dead battery. Don't diss the gun for user error. Second of all everyone saying that it's not accurate or it is accurate is just stupid. Everyone that is not a newb in paintball knows that the only thing that regulates accuracy is paint to barrel match. It's not the gun. Also, someone said the range was not good on this gun. CHRONO IT UP TO 300 FPS. An Imp shooting 300 fps at the horizontal will shoot the exact same distance as a Raven shooting 300 fps at the horizontal, regardless of barrel size. Once again, ITS NOT THE GUN, its user error. Also, If you are jamming the bolt, its because you do not have an electric hopper. Which bosts this question, "what the hell are you doing trying to rip on this gun without an electro hopper?" Of course its gonna chop and jam!!! Once again, user error. And for everyone saying that it is too expensive for a hybrid blowback??? My store is selling the Raven nexion with a 48 3000 Java tank for $360. I'm sorry but I think thats a good deal.
Conclusion: Awesome gun. But if you don't have any common sence like some people that reviewed this gun, please, please, I'm begging you, stay away from the sport of paintball. Otherwise, enjoy this gun in the woods or in the tournament, because frankly, it does both well.

accuracy isnt just paint to barrel match. a bolt greatly effect your accuracy and so does your operating pressure. And some guns can shoot farther i had my spyder set at 285 and my cocker set at 285 and it can shoot farther.

This is interesting as the laws of physics state otherwise. Once a ball leaves the barrel traveling at a certain velocity it will slow and drop at a consistent rate due to the simple little concepts known as inertia, friction, and gravity. No matter what gun it was shot out of. With the exception of the flatline barrel.
