Have also used Spyder e99, Spyder Flash, Rebel BTB Electro
DragunFire Full Funtion
18" 3a KO Barrel
Psycho Ballistics Drop forward
48 300 Nitro Tank
Barrel, Nitro/Compressed Air
Fast Trigger, Easy Cleaning, dead on with good barrel, Spyder Threads
Bad Stock Barrel, Kind of pissy with co2
Over the three months that ive had this gun, it has performed very well. Trigger is very light, and can easily out shoot the12v revy I use. I can keep pace with my friends Impy, and outshoot most spyders, except the Em1. Easy to use electronic interface is great for pros to begginers. Although if you want to play in tournaments, you might want to shy away from this gun and look at the T.E.S. or the Dragunfly.
Great Gun, easy to use interface, and lightning fast trigger for the price.
LCD read out
Safety can be annoying to turn on
When I first got this gun it came in the carrying case, I opened it and it looked great! Right out of the box this gun works great. Can shoot up to 20 BPS on auto, or if you don't want to shoot 20 BPS you can adjust it to shoot anywhere from 4 to 20 BPS. this gun has a very nice range and accuracy. great Co2 usage. And the price fo this gun is great(I got mine for $150). It runs off a 9 volt battery wich I have used for around 1000 shots has yet to even go a quarter dead.
This is a great gun. For the price there is no reason you shouldn't get it over a Tippmann or Spyder!
NPS Icon-E- pretty similar gun, but the trigger has a stronger pull to it, and it maxes at 13 bps.
Tippmann 98 Custom- Good gun when upgraded, but it takes alot to upgrade.
M3 2003 Dragun Fire LCD, Evlution II hopper, 14" CMI QB Tru-Flight barrel, 12oz CO2
HPA, Delrin bolt, e-hopper, new barrel, and new trigger.
Very fast, great gun for what you pay for it.
CO2 problems when you play in the cold.
This is a great gun; even better when you upgrade it. It's pretty inexpensive and out-performs all the guns i've tried in that price range. It shoots very fast, but with CO2, the bolt doesn't blow back all the way every now and then when it's cold. The stock barrel is pretty accurate, but my stick squeegee couldn't clean out the forward part because it is a larger bore than the rear part. The stock trigger has a wobble to it, but that's because it doesn't have a spring behind it, therefore it has a much lighter pull. With a little effort (or a new adjustable trigger) you can hit the sweet spot and pour out 15+ bps on semi. The aluminum bolt isn't bad, but it seems to move slower when it's cold, so i'd recommend a delrin bolt just to avoid the occasional chops. The electronics work great, though it is a little annoying that there are no user presets- every time you turn it on, the semi is set to 15 bps and the auto is set to 10. Also the safety is a nuisance to work because you gotta hold it down for 5 seconds to turn it on, so i usually just leave my gun active, which, in combination with such a light trigger pull, has caused me to have to clean out my barrel condom several times.
I was planning on using this as an entry level gun and buying a more expensive gun when I had gained more experience, but with just a few upgrades, this marker has held its own against Mags and Cockers.
I'd give this gun a 9 because it's great for the money, but gets kinda cranky with CO2. If you run nitro, I don't think you'll have any problems.

Its not really a problem but, it only has 2 buttons.
Most of the people who reviewed this gun don't know what the hell they are talking about. I have been playing paintball for 8 years and have never shot a gun this nice in that price range. It can hang right there with the cockers, and angels. It has many of the great options that the more expensive guns have, for half the price. The rate of fire is great, my new view loader E-2 hopper that feeds 17 BPS cant even keep up with it on its 3 fastest rates. The trigger is great i'll set it on auto 15 BPS, and I can shoot 1,2,...or the whole hopper every trigger pull, its that sensitive. This is definitely the best gun i've ever shot and would recommend it to everyone.
This is the best gun i have every shot, and i've shot a lot. I would recommend it to anyone.

I have this dragun gun with a halo b hopper,nitro and and 18 inch barrel
halo b hopper nitro 18 inch barrel
fast for it's price and accruate with a 18 inch barrel
If u dont have a electric hopper it will chop and paint ,nottin else
This was my third gun a have got and this gun is great for its price i got it for 170 dollards. This gun is very accurated if u have a 18 inch barrel on it. and 20 bps is good. you can adjust the speeds from 4 - 20 bps. and only thing that is bad is the saftey but i think it could be good sometimes. this gun has a timer and it counts of many shot you have fired. i recommed that u get nitro with it because using the auto can get ur fore grip kind of cold. i dont know why people have trouble with this gun it benn fine for me.
i haven't had trouble with this gun it could be very relyable for me. the only problem is the barrel it comes with it pretty accurated but a 18 inch is a beauty for me.if you are gettin into speed ball this is a good gun to start off with.and you should should get a new bolts good.
i think this gun earns a b beacuse of its of its relyable and its a badA$$ gun when u have all it upgrades
I got the Dragun fire and the regulator on it wasnt to bad but ive seen and had better.
I like it. It is extremly fast, some people say it is illegal in tournoments but i dont know.
It is cheap for how good it is. It is fun because lighting people up is fun.
If you like having fun lighting people up, buy this gun.

It's a great gun for pros and a little advanced for amateurs but you'll get used to it quickly.
i have the Dragun Dragunfire, nitro, Freak barrel, other than that stock
nitro, barrel is good...but a new one improves the accuracy a bit
The LCD screen, Stock Barrel, average weight
there isnt any other than the feed may come loose after lots of firing
The gun is great stock, it is geared more towards the intermediate players and has a nice look to it. this is a great gun for all players. i like the safety because you know it is on unless YOU turn it off, it is not a switch. it has 2 firing modes, Auto, and Semi, it is awesome that it goes up to 20 bps, a really nice feature. also the trigger pull is really light, (so dont run with your finger on the trigger!). but it is another nice feature. so overall this is an awesome gun (better than the Icon).
I recomend this to every intermediate player looking for a great gun. all the features make it the best gun that i have tried
Dragunfly Mechanical with a Worr Blade, ACi Zero Gravity barrel,Halo Hopper, 88/45000 pure energy tank
Barrel, a better drop maby. A really fast hopper
It has a nice trigger pull for the money. It as an LCD screen
works with a halo-B when shooting full auto, and it still chops at 20bps.
ITs a god gun. Fom my experence with Dragun Empire and M3 paintball almost all of their guns have been good. THe gun has a nice trigger pull . To me the styleing could be changed alittle, there are tones of guns that look excatly like it like Diabos E-Rex and ACIs Sinister and its no changed from the M3 erea.
If you want to buy a good gun for low cost get this one. If you looking for an alternitive to a spyder, again git this one. IF you looking for something more up graded, get a T.E.S.,
Same company, better gun. I am going to give this gun a 6 cuz there intt a 6.5. I would give it a higher rating if it was more original.
