Designed for police and military training scenarios, the WG-65 is an accurate simulation of the real thing. This semi-automatic version shoots standard .68 caliber paintballs using either compressed air or CO2. Because of its duty as a training tool, the construction is extremely rugged and durable, requiring minimal maintenance. All the features you would expect are there, right down to the collapsible telescoping stock, fully adjustable military-style sights, and sling loop.
The rear velocity adjuster and push safety make this marker acceptable for use at most fields for casual or scenario play. Using a standard or electronic 200-round loader, this marker emulates the action and recoil of its military counterpart. The vertical adapter accepts standard paintball tanks but this marker is best suited for a remote line to get the full effect.
The WG-65 is NOT A TOY and is a virtually exact replica of the real thing. Do not carry this marker in public or in the passenger compartment of your vehicle. This is one of the finest replica markers ever made.
Product Availability

Products Used:
SIM-4, Tippmann 98, Tippmann A-5. The SIM-4 is basically a cheap nock-off od the WG-65. The Sim-4 is probably about 70% plastic where the WG-65 if only about 20% plactic/composite materials.
Marker Setup: Armotech E-Trigger, Mag kit, Armotech remote line HPA tank, barrel shroud/mock silencer, laser sight, tactical light, 12v Revolution with X-board.
Recommended
Upgrades:
Well, it really depends on how heavy you are willing to make this marker. Basically, the more you add on, the heavier the marker gets. The E-trigger is nice, but the Armotech trigger frame has no turny cover over the setting switches. The tactical light is GREAT during night scenario games. Pretty much everything else is just for looks, and it does look pretty impressive on the field.
Strengths: VERY accurate with the stock 14” barrel & man does it look good!
Weaknesses: This marker is something of a gas hog. THIS MARKER IS HEAVY.
Review: I've used this marker for a yeat now and really like it. The attention you get when you walk out onto the field is nice. It does however literally begin to weigh on you after about 4-5 hours into a scenario. I recommend this marker to any serious scenario player, but you have to love this marker, it's NOT for a beginner.

Strengths . . This marker is VERY accurate with the stock 14” barrel. Adding a longer barrel just makes it more so. This marker great all type of respect on the field from other players. It just looks mean!

Weaknesses . . .This marker is something of a gas hog. Yes it can go CO2 or HPA, but CO2 is really the way to go with this marker (I hate to say that because I love HPA). This marker has no reg on it so it needs constant pressure. HPA starts high and slowly drops in pressure. This marker has a tendency to eat through bolt O-rings as well. Thankfully they are the same size as your CO2/HPA tank. Lastly, THIS MARKER IS H
Conclusion: Overall, I love this marker. It's like a great classic car. It looks great, runs great, but needs constant attention and weight a ton. If you don't mind the constant tinkering to keep it in top form, go for it!

Recommended
Upgrades:
Purchasing or making your own tactile sling
Strengths: GREAT for either urban combat training or scenario games
Weaknesses: Laser sight and scope are pointless.
Review: This type of marker was designed for military training or to give paint ballers that military weaponry feel to. People complain about the weight of this marker. To the people in the armed forces I know that the weight doesn't bother them due to the fact that real M16's weigh more. I enjoyed using it at scenario games to have fun but also to keep my skills in check.
Conclusion: I like it, in fact I think I might keep it.

Accurate
Weaknesses: Amazingly heavy
Review: One of the kids i played woods ball with had this gun. I got to shoot it a couple of times and this gun is amazing. This gun shoot extremelly hard. When i shot it I aimed at a tree about 200 ft away and I nailed it. The sight really helps for accuracy. At my friends house we played woods speed ball and he stayed as a back man the whole game. And he got a lot of kills. I ran up to one of the front bunkers and popped out for only a second. He laid one good shot on my finger and it killed. That was almost six months ago and i still have a little bruise there.
Conclusion: This gun is great for woods ball but not good for speed ball. I'm giving it a 9 just because it will only do you good if all you play is woods ball.
