Black Dragun T.E.S.
Halo TSA Backman
J&J Ceramic Barrel
20oz CO2 (yeah yeah I know hpa is better)
If your a rec. player the only one ya really need is an electric hopper.
Otherwise I'd suggest hpa, barrel (as always), better regulator
-Pretty accurate stock
Minor things, read review
When I bought this gun I wasn't sure what to expect seeing as how there are some mixed reviews about it. I was surprised to find how fast I could spray paint with this thing. I knew it fired up to 20bps but I didn't know it was only semi-auto with a D-bounce option. This mode is actually 'Auto' on the LCD and somehow it seems to let you shoot faster than you can move your finger. As high as the ROF is I have yet to break any paint. The trigger is pretty sweet, the buttons on my cd player require more pressure to push which helps with the speed. Like I said it's fairly accurate stock and even better with my J&J ceramic. Contrary to what a lot of ppl say there's no real need to rush out and buy a new barrel. It's one of the better stock barrels out there and a lot quieter than any Spyder or Tippman. It's been said that the grips suck, too big or something. I happen to like the grips cuz they're very comfortable. The buttons are sunken so there's no accidental changing of modes. I run CO2 thru mine and it's done really well with it, however the reg. does tend to turn into an ice cube. But that's CO2 for ya. Now there are a few things I wasn't too impressed with. Nothing major. The top of my pressure gauge is turned at 3:00 but it still works perfectly. A lot of ppl would agree with me that the owners manual isn't very helpful. If you have any technical questions about it just call the company. There's also useless options on the LCD like dwell and like I said the Auto mode isn't exactly auto. Oh yeah they misspelled the word tactical on the gun (tachtical). This obviously has no bearing on the performance. Just thought it was funny.
I would recommend this gun to anyone no matter what kind of player; rec., woods, senerio or tournament (with some upgrades). Since the pros far out weigh the cons I'm giving this a 10.
Good Point about not being mean to noobs JeepNaked. I hate.....well dislike greatly i guess i should say, people who flame noobs and make fun of them just because they just started playing or arent even that good or whatever. There is an interesting discussion on one of the reviews on the Angel 4 where the poster brags about over shooting noobs and bunker them while shooting at them. I suggest people take a look at this excellent portrayal of the typical stereotyped paintballer. I swear to god, thats what peopl must think of us, as people who like to hurt people that are new to a sport, i find this ver selfish and degrading to the sport of paintball...anyways heres the link to the big ass discussion......http://www.pbreview.com/comments/?rev=87569 it really starts to pick up at around review comment post 20ish:P
I'll have to check it out, thanks for the info. I know what you mean I witness the newer players myself included getting lit up every weekend by some jerk with a better gun and thinks hes playing in a tourny or something, it is crap and it could potentially destroy our sport. Half of the people I see lighting up the newbs aren't good players anyway so they pick on the newbs to make themselves feel better.
Oh I'll be easy on him, I actually want him to get into it. I'm taking him to a senerio game in May. He just got a Black Dragun LCD and some other stuff in exchange for giving this dude a tattoo...not a bad deal.
