Products Used:
Tippmann A5, custom98

Strengths: It's looks until it breaks in to amillion peices
Weaknesses: Very cheap construction. Plastic parts are gabage. Trigger assembaly is weak.
Review: Run as fast as you can away from this Marker! I saw it online, and fell in love with the looks. I check here now review, I went for it. $470 Canadian dollars latter I owned it. It looked great until I tried to play with it. It's cheaply made. Very fragile plastic pieces that didn't even last three game. ITS GARBAGE DO NOT BUY! First time I took it out I could not get it to shoot more then 200fps, turns out it won't work on HPA only CO2 switched to CO2 got 240 out of it. Took it back dealer said oh you need a better spring so he installs it and we get it shooting 300fps. Take it out for a second game safety breaks and the forgrip. The broken safety keeps it from firing properly. Another bad day out. Take it back to the dealer he attempts to fix the safety but doesn’t really. Take it out again safety comes looks and the gun goes full auto tearing it's self apart. The whole trigger assembly is housed in cheap weak plastic that split and shredded when the gun went full auto. Third time out and it was now truly NFG (broken). The dealer was great and took it back offered me a new one but I said no thanks that enough of that give me a tippmann. It's really to bad because it's a sexy marker. Ok if you want to hang it on the wall.
Conclusion: Stay as far away from this marker as you. It's really poorly made. I haven't tried any of their other markers but I never will after this experience.

Review: After reading more reviews, I think i'm being overly generous on my ratings, because I am able to repair even the crappiest of markers. I guess thats how I ended up as my teams "gun-tech."

The Miltec belongs to one of my teams founding members. It was purchased based on the fact that it looks like the real thing (except for the 14" barrel). Out of the box, it shot straight, fast, and was easy to maneuver. It gained realism when we put a moc-silencer on that ridiculous barrel. The construction of the main body is White-Metal. Its advertised as aluminum, but its not. The receiver is machined almost as a perfect replica of the real MP5. There are grooves on the receiver that would possibly accomodate extendable stocks. The top of the receiver readily accepted a "claw" for mounting optic packages. The hand-guard even has a hole to take a surefire flashlight.

In terms of design, Armotech and Miltec left too much room for improvement. Mixing plastic, steel and white metal, is just a bit off. Especially since the very top part of the body should have been made of metal, same for the trigger grip. Other parts, like the buttstock and handguard, are fine when made of plastic. Although clever, three pins holding the trigger assembly onto the receiver, is a bit impractical. If you have to remove the trigger, you probably won't be doing any sort of maintenance in the field. Once again, the pins are steel, and the trigger grip is plastic. This is why the grip gets wobbly over time (metal wears down plastic). They probably would've gotten better longevity out of it if the pins were made of a stiff vinyl. Or if the grip was made of metal.

The marker was put through its paces. When the feed-neck came loose, recocking it caused a torquing motion on the tof of the plastic body, and thus the plastic snapped at its weakest point (above the feedneck). This was repaired with some fiberglass. The marker was dropped (no more than 2.5 feet), it fell on the clip kit, and the fitting that feeds the gas into the marker, snapped. It cost way too much to have one manufactured (since that part is not available). The fitting adapts American-sized air lines and fittings to a Chinese thread on the receiver. (make sense?)

The trigger assembly consists of a dicast frame sitting in a plastic grip. The safety switch is known to become worn down and react flimsy. (remedy by removing it). Also, the pins that hold the sear, spring and all the trigger parts in place, come loose. This is unavoidable in an assembly like this. The only way to eliminate it is to either use a dab of super glue (non permanent), or to weld the pins into the diecast(very permanent [preferred solution]).

This marker is nearly identical (internally) to the entire WG, MT and WS line-up of markers. However for some reason, this marker is very rough on the bolts O-rings. Rather than suffering having to replace rings very frequently, the bolt has been changed for a plastic one.
Conclusion: This is NOT an entry-level marker. It is elaborate, and clever. It requires tinkering and plenty of maintenance to operate properly. I would recommend this marker to a player who is patient with his marker, and is willing to take it apart and figure out whats gone wrong; rather than running back to the dealer over-and-over again. The dealer rarely has the field experience with a particular marker, to help you diagnose and repair problems. Take the markers apart, figure it out, fix it, learn it, live it, breathe it.


No more complainning form you children!

Review: This gun is fairly decent for an out of the box woodsball set-up. for players that don't want to spend the money and have the hassle of gathering up parts for their tippmanns this marker is perfect. mind you the quality isn't as high as lets say, a 98c, but then again what markers really do compare to a tippmann when it comes to construction.
I've used this gun for 2 years now and i've never had any major problems, i had to replace the spring once, and a couple of seals went over winter but other then that this marker is mechanically sound.
For players that like to play deep in the woods and dig in for long games then I'd recommend a remote line because with a 12 or 14oz. tank this marker can get quite heavy, but since the marker has the quick disconnect for the remote line already on it, it's just a matter of unscrewing one bolt to change it over.
while the plastic on this gun looks kind of cheap and flimsy, I've put it through quite a bit and I've had nothing crack on it which surprised me, i guess looks can be deceiving.
It's also covered under the armotech lifetime warranty which is reassuring.
Conclusion: I'd definitely recommend this marker to an average woodsball player because of it's realistic looks and feel, it's decent quality, and because it's ready to go out of the box.
It might not be as high of quality as a tippmann but then again what is, and it's lifetime warranty will replace something if it does happen to break, which hasn't happened to me in the 2 years I've played with it.
