ok, to begin with ive used almost every pirhana out there and this one is by far the best, i found it to perform better then the non storm TS and the 2k3 E-Force models. Ive also used cockers and a impulse for target practice and i can say this thing easily matching them. It shoots very nice, even and not a single double shot or break in a 200 round hopper on full auto. The gun also has a nice black/chrome mix to it that really catches the eyes, even with my black progressive on it still looks so sharp. The only bad thing ive found is if your planning on carrying a full electro 200 round hopper and a full 20 oz Co2 tank your looking at in around a 10 pound gun, this is because the Maco storm trigger frame is almost completly metal. Its nice in the fact that it wont break (like my cheap plastic handled 2k3 LCD Dragun did) and if your using a remote like i am then you barely notice the extra weight.
Ok that was my old review, ive used it for a bit longer now and im changing my review from a 9 to 6 because:
The trigger is impossible to walk and the frame is VERY touchy, i accidently tightened the screws in the frame too much and it blocked the cilanoid and it wouldnt shoot right, so after one final attempt at fixing it before i took it in i unscrewed and rescrewed the handle back on and it worked so i tested some stuff out and found the problem, very annoying
Also its pretty expensive for what you get, its a ok gun and it mostly works out fine but its kind of a trial and error thing (wouldnt advise the gun for tourneys though, heh try it out and see what i mean)
All in all for 400 CDN this is a wicked gun, it matches anything in the 100-600 dollar price range without trying. if you can stand the weight or find a way to get around it then you wont be dis apointed with it.
check updated review
Giving it a 9 because of the weight, if it wasnt so heavy it would get a 10
6 out of 10
