Products Used:
none
Marker Setup: hybrid rival numatics, pretty much stock, just Shizzle panels.
Recommended
Upgrades:
A new DF and barrel in the near future. All I can think of
Strengths: quiet, consistent, accurate... and that's stock.
Weaknesses: Drop forward doesn't drop forward, just goes down about an inch.
Review: This is a great gun if you are buying your first cocker... and this is also a great gun if you're not buying your first cocker. So overall this is a great gun. If all else fails you have that lifetime warranty to back up on so there really is no losing and you cannot find a better gun for the price, another perk it's tournament ready right outta the box.
Conclusion: "see review body"

Review: ACCURACY
Alright, when this first arrived, the first thing i did, naturally, was take it for a test drive, i took Plenty of Dry Fire shots and Took it out to shoot paint. When i took my first shot with paint, the first thing i noticed was that it was so QUIET and some of my opponents might not be able to know if i'm even shooting. Well then i did the accuracy test. I set my Target at about 60 Feet and shot at a velocity of 280fps. The first shot was my target, and trying to not shake my hands tried to shoot exactly at that position again, and it was a success, then i tried shot to shot consistency, and all the shots stayed fairly close to my first shot. Now thats basically Ball on Ball. I moved it at 90 Feet and Still kept the same score of fairly close to Ball on Ball. Then 120 feet was next and I saw some changes on shot to shot consistency, it was normal seeing as it was a long range, so that doesn't take off much from my score.

SPEED
Alright after i was done testing accuracy i moved on to see how fast i could shoot. Mech Cockers are known to be slow and the highest i've ever seen anyone go on a mech is prolly 10-12 BPS and with this cocker i was able to achieve jsut that. WIth lots of practice i could easily hit it with no problem. But if you get something like an Eblade then you can really start blowing people away.

SIZE
Well cockers are known to be small so its a given that this is going to be small, but when i first picked it up i was amazed at how light it was given that this is a cocker. If i wasn't looking at it i wouldn't have known if this was a cocker, it was lighter than my brothers spyder and also lighter than my friends piranha.

COMPLAINTS
Alright well Every sexy gun has their off points and this gun is no exception. One problem i had within the first month i had this was the cupseal would always come lose and air would just spew out of the barrel. But working with cockers alot this wasn't that big of a deal. But what pissed me off was that I couldn't add my Rat Valve 3:16 in it. But it's probably because of my Valve Tool. The WGP valve tool has a very small diameter where the valve pin is supposed to fit. And with the rat valve having a pretty big diameter it wasn't able to fit.
Conclusion: Well I love this gun like no other. But the true choice is on your side. Do you think YOU will be happy with this cocker. With all the information given, would you consider buying it.

bottomline
Review: This gun is defeinlty not a take out of box and go play. Although after some tinkering this marker definelty performs and makes it worth it. Not to mention the marker wieghs less then the paint and hopper. Also the gun is fairly pretty.

Some annoying problems out of the box

-bottomline pin is too long for most nitro/co2 tanks 1 out of my 5 worked.
-regulator leaked and needed to be rebuilt...
-feedneck was to small for my revvy or halo....
-Delrin bolt takes a beating when you try to remove it

While none of this problems are devasting they do take away from the fun of getting a new gun...

Conclusion: For the price I'd say the gun is well worth it. After dealing with the annoyances the gun will not let you down. At least none of the problems required a box and postage stamp:)

Also have a wgp autococker, the hybrid rival out performs the wgp by far. more accurate, consistent, faster, and weighs about half the amount of the wgp.
Marker Setup: I am using the hybrid rival right now, the wgp has become my back up. The rival now has dye sticky grips, 9 piece phat barrel kit, and a dead on paintball on off drop forward. Also running a evo 2 hopper with 88c.i. air tank.
Recommended
Upgrades:
Not real big on the factory grips, need to change the drop forward as well, if you want your bottle tucked under.
Strengths: Accuracy, very light, fast.
Weaknesses: Factory grips are not the best. Drop forward needs to be changed.
Review: Super light weight, thin, front block is about half the size of any other cocker. When people pick up my rival and see the dye grips, they think it is a dye ultralite due to it being so light weight. Feed neck is threaded, so you can remove it easily. Adjustable ball detent is very nice.
Conclusion: Very happy with this marker, would suggest it to everyone. cant wait for there race gun to hit the stores. Excellent marker rival, keep up the good work!

Strengths: Comes with a barrel, bottem line, and is cheap
Weaknesses: Not that accurate
Review: Well i bought this gun because my friend bought a cocker and i wanted to have a cocker to so he would stop braging. I was so ecited to use it. The next week i went with the friend and shot it for the first time. When i shot it i was amazed of how innaccurate it was for a cocker i was expecting a lot more. But the next week it redemed itself in a tounament over at toumbstone. Are team was h2k and we were all pretty good being that it was the first tounament that we had ever been in. Well anyway the gun is pretty kool after i got used to it. It's very air friendly and loves kids. lol. This would bee a good gun as a backup gun.
Conclusion: All in all this gun was good for the mony but i would recomend to save up and buy an electro.

i have used bko's (prety good), almost every spider,and i've finished of a half full hopper on a angel speed (very very fast)
Marker Setup: I have a 68/3000 crossfire tank on it, i have a delrin bolt, and i'm meaning to get an e blade on it.
Recommended
Upgrades:
E blade
Strengths: Acuracy definetly, very light, balanced wheight with tank
Weaknesses: Speed
Review: Great gun, doesnt need lubing vary often, its acurate, good looking, very light (especialy with a fiber tank), dont get it if your new to paintball, oh and when i was sliding a screw came out of my 3 way so i wasnt to happy, when you chop a ball the acuracy gets all out of whack. A weakness is Speed (even tho it has a shoter triger pull than most wgps, doesnt mean its faster)
Conclusion: I say, dont get it if you dont have the money to get an eclipse frame sometime (not a worrblade) but other than that its a great gun!
