Strengths: All plastic design, internals are identical to the NSG splatmaster if you are looking for parts for either marker.

Uses 12 grams.
Weaknesses: Clunky, no velocity adjuster, short range.

Doesn't have the same appeal or charm as the Splatmaster - which is a true stock marker.
Conclusion: What is this doing in the Semi Category? The GZ-1000 is a "quasi" pump marker with the same operation as the splatmaster. Push the plunger on the back to cock the marker... The only advantage it has over the splatmaster is that it is direct feed. I used to have one (how long ago was that?) but can't say I liked it very much. I found the range too short.

The GZ-2000, a different marker, was double action.

Review: I acquired my GZ-1000 as an add-in to a purchase several years ago. I've used it in several games, but it's by no means my "standard" on-field shootin' iron. The closest modern comperable, I believe, would be the Brass Eagle Talon. The GZ is relatively quick shooting once you get the hang of the finger/hand positioning. There are finger knurls for your index and middle finger of your non-shooting hand, and you push the cocking button with your thumb.

As the GZ is based on the SplatMaster, that feature will be familiar to shooters of that gun. Improvements include, and are mostly limited to, the direct feed rather than tube feed only. A hopper could be adapted to mount on the GZ, but I'd recommend nothing larger than a 40-round ammo box, due to balance. Other than that, the GZ is cosmetically different, molded in black composite with a ribbed barrel.
Conclusion: Since these are getting harder to find in good condition, they're more of a collector than a serious field piece. I wouldn't recommend someone go out and try to find one to play with on a regular basis, but they're entertaining little guns. For their time and age, I'd rate these as a 7 out of 10. You can't really compare something like this to anything from modern times!

dont even bother
Strengths: internals are identical to the NSG Splatmaster so here's an alternative for parts
Weaknesses: range and velocity drop after 15 or so shots
Review: overall its a lot like the splatmaster, but just doesn't have the same feeling and isn't as stylish. lol. today at a gun show i happened to see that a person had like 3 splatmasters and 5 of these that were unopened and he only wanted $15 for each, so i picked up one of each. im pretty happy with them, but im not sure if i'll shoot the splatmaster since it's never been shot and its kind of a collectible. sorry about the year, i really dont know what year it was made.
Conclusion: this is an okay gun, but if you're gonna get one then just go for the splatmaster.
