Products Used:
Autococker with hinge blade trigger. I was only borrowing it, so I don't much more than that.

-5" shocktech drop rail
-KAPP on/off dovetail rail ASA

Recommended
Upgrades:
benchmark frame
matched barrel
barrel venting
stabalizer or dual stabalizers, depending on if you'll be using CO2 or HPA
Strengths: trigger pull, stability of shooting platform, small, very light, very consistant, quiet
Weaknesses: cost, must be sent into PPS for major servicing
Review: I can't really say more than has already been said. The blazer is the SWEETEST gun I've ever gotten to shoot. Only downside performance-wise is that no ball will survive coming out the barrel if there's a barrel break uncleaned (and I mean unswabbed. not just dry firing to clear out some paint), but the plus is that rarely if ever (when using good fitting or smaller AND high quality paint in moderate or warmer weather (50* and up)) will it break or chop. You have to almost consciously get this baby to chop a ball.

As to accuracy . . . incredible. with a matched barrel, I'm shooting ropes where others with their fancy schmancy electros shoot clouds comparatively. The blazer is also extremely fast. The trigger pull is very shoot, smooth, and INCREDIBALLY sexy.

Also, this thing is WAY compact. yes, it works like a cocker, but where a cocker has tons of free space and stupidly places the pneus out front and in the open begging to be shot, the blazer's air passages are all internalized and milled INTO the body. this makes a marker that is only 15" in length with a 12" barrel placed on it (barrel goes 2" into the body). This also makes for a very light gun as well.

Simply put, this gun has put me out of the so-called "paintball arms race". I have NO desire for another gun OVER this one. Sure, I'd like others, but not to replace the blazer, definately not to replace the blazer (unless it's another blazer).
Conclusion: The BEST mech semi on the market hands down. Worth EVERY PENNY spent on it. Best gun I've ever shot or owned. She's a keeper.
