The Ariakon Toro is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Light weight, strong real strong, easy to use, accurate
It may be just me but i like only metal triggers
Nice simple body strong real strong. (i didnt do It) feels like you can run it over and it would still work. easy switching firing modes. price is unreal for what it can do. I use it as a back up to my shocker. I use the toro more and more. the lightness of the toro shocked me . It real light , let a pro shop use it and the love the price and lightness of the gun.
I have as a back up to my shocker, but I would use it anytime against any gun. Good starter or back up gun. And the price is real good!!!
Spyder Imagine not as good
Tippmann 98 Custom not as good
Viewloadr Orion definatley not as good
Ariakon Toro stock (first game I played)
20 oz Co2 bottle
normal gravity fed hopper
New barrel. Stock barrel is better than the stock Tippmann and stock spyder barrel
Very good accuracy
Decent stock barrel
Very well balanced
none that I've had so far
Well, I just played at Blackrain Paintball with my new Toro and I loved it. It performed very well without chopping a single ball! I took some long snipe shots and too my suprise, I hit the enemy players. This gun has very good accuracy. It's very light, well balanced, and has a nice trigger(It just feels right for me). It even comes with a pretty decent stock barrel. Overall this gun rock and beats spyders and tippmanns. Even though I'll update this review as time goes on as I'm not really sure how good this gun's endurance is.
The Toro is pretty much a better version of the Spyder. It feels much lighter, has a better trigger, and has a better stock barrel. As far as endurance goes I'm not sure but I'm glad I bought the Toro and not a spyder or a tippmann. Besides, I like not being like everybody else. Final rating, 9.
Not played alot of paintball? BUY THIS GUN
Short on cash and want a good gun? BUY THIS GUN
This is really the ony thing i can say about the gun- its awsome. Really the only weakness is that its not that good for speedball, because it doesnt shoot fast. Apart from that its a great, a gun i will recomend to any ametuer player . Its comperable as far as accuracy goes to my freinds tippman w/ a werks barrel. Its also comperable whith my freinds cocker ( even though its not one of the goods ones).
If u like to have an accurate gun that shoots not so fast the buy this one. If u play alot of speedball or spray and pray, i recomend a differant one
Have power and good acurate, have to be balance but is only a little
The trigger is plastic, a metal trigger is better
Is good, light , and strong if you can make a proof do it. The first time I used it I think this isn't work is to light i have fear to broke it but when the game start wao i feel i can fly with this gun, i so light and have a good acurate is a good option to backup gun. I change my Diablo Mongoose for this TORO ( Mongoose was my backup gun ). Don't forget the price is so cheap...
Now i have a new backup for my Atomix
8 out of 10

Green 2003 Autococker with Dye Boomstick, Shocktech Superfly bolt, Evolution II hopper, and 3a 47/3000 nitro tank.
Bolt, barrel, drop forward
Easy to use, somewhat lightweight, durable.
Blowback, plastic trigger, not as fast shooting as i expected
It is pretty strong. It is very durable gun. It is great for beginning players. It is nothing different from a electric spyder. It probably shoots slower than an Spyder Imagine or E-99 Avant. It has heavy blow back like any other blowback gun, hard to keep shots consistant.
Okay for beginners nothing different from any spyder out there.
Why buy this gun? If u wanna go to electro, just buy a gun with anti-chop and 5 firing modes instead of 3. I would have to suggest a spider of this because they are in the ballpark range but twice as good. If ur a paintburner dont get this gun. It shoots slower then expected. I wish Akarion would start making good guns instead of trying to be cool. Dont buy this gun to look cool, beacause it would do the opposite to u.
Not a good electro, just get another electro with better stuff for not much more.
Ariakon Toro with 14" 32degree whisper barrel, egg, pure energy 20oz CO2 tank.
Electronic hopper, new barrel.
Looks pretty good
Chops balls without electronic hopper
Firing mode light hard to see
I have been playing paintball for about two years now and this gun is what pretty much got me started. It's a very light and easy to use gun. It's great for beginners and is cheap for what it can do. I think the Toro is capable of about 13bps and I prefer the Toro over any Spyder. I used my gun in one tournament, and even though we got owned the Toro held up remarkably.
All in all if you are looking for a cheap electronic gun that is tough and reliable pick the Toro.
