Elite Kit: The addition of the Elite Kit brings you the most popular accessories Ariakon™ has ever carried. We start with our Elite rail, which is a two-level, one-inch “weaver” style rail, 100% military grade firearm compatible. This rail lets you mount up to TWO different components on the top of your marker. To that we include our Elite Sniper Scope, which is a genuine Bushnell® 4x32 Riflescope, complete with mounting rings. This scope is a military grade scope with real windage and elevation adjustments. As if that wasn’t enough we add our tactical laser kit. This laser kit comes with our firearm grade laser and mount along with batteries, on/off switch AND pressure activated switch. If you want to get the drop on the competition then this is the kit for you.
Incredible Styling: The SIM-4 Elite is built to look and feel just like the real M4. From the realistic M-16 style cocking lever to the telescoping stock you will think you are holding the real thing. Used by military personnel around the world the SIM-4 Elite is respected by player and professional alike.
Easy Maintenance: With quick strip field pins and a unique two piece body design that allows you access to internals, the SIM-4 Elite is a breeze to maintain and operate. The barrel is designed to be easily removed for quick cleaning even under fire.
Accuracy and Distance: No longer will you have to shell out extra for a quality barrel. The SIM-4 Elite comes standard with a 14" precision honed barrel designed for extreme accuracy, even at a distance.
Durability: The SIM-4 Elite is engineered from the ground up to take a pounding. This isn't just an assembly line produced marker with some cosmetic add-ons the aluminum alloy construction will make it through even the roughest games. Each and every SIM-4 Elite is hand assembled and tested prior to leaving our facility to ensure you receive a marker ready to use the day you receive it.
Compatibility: Because this marker was designed to look and function like its real counterpart, the SIM-4 Elite will allow you to use many of the actual accessories designed for the M4. Everything from Scope Mounts, RIS Kits, to Night Vision systems, if it's compatible with the real thing, it probably fits on the SIM-4 Elite.

The Ariakon SIM-4 Elite is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
I haven't used any other products that come close to this marker in performance wise.
I currently use the Sim-4 Elite equipped with the Scepter 4000A Grenade Launcher mounted to my RIS kit. As well I have a magazine kit installed on the marker as well as a BSA 40mm Red Dot sight and a mock suppressor.
The best upgrade I would recommend is a Delrin bolt available at www.tacticalmods.com, Contact Matt......Great service. Might want to look into a Q-Loader if you want to keep the low profile look as well. The Scepter Launcher....another great upgrade should you want to dish out the cash for one. And well the magazine kit just to finish the look of the marker.
The key strengths of this marker is it is very accurate with the stock barrel
Key weaknesses is the break in period required for this marker
All in all I give this marker a excellent rating if your into or thinking of getting into the mil-sim world of paintball. It is not, by all means a speedball gun. Awesome customer service combined with a serious milsim marker, how can you go wrong? Break in period was a pain in the beginning but once it breaks in OMG....you'll love this marker, it's accuracy and just intimidation it brings to the field.
I would consider buying this marker again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a milsim marker.
Didn't try it out yet, other gun i have is BT-4 Iron - horse. just got this one off eBay very good deal.
Tac light, laser, silencer, sling, scope.
Anything i said up top.
Okay im just here to say this gun is wicked, it looks awesome, feels awesome, and has the appearance of a dark lord. On the other hand...The butt stock spins on the back of it is that normal if not what should i do?, it still retracts and stuff normally, but the butt stock doesn't stay in place so if anyone could help me that would be great. - Thanks Borg
