Accurate with 16"barrel
Very easy to take apart
Not accurate with stock barrel
Hopper on top
Good body and VERY light. Accurate with longer barrel(but you have to buy one). If it ever does break(which it hasn't happened to me) very easy to take apart and fix. The hand grip comfortably fits right into your hand. Easy to hand in the field. VERY easy to clean. This gun doesn't chop very many balls if you have a good barrel. If it does chop any its the balls not the gun.Got mine for $45. Bad thing is the hopper is on top and you cant see down the barrel.
I would buy this gun cause cheep and works great in the field.
10 out of 10

Easy to field strip
See review body
weaknesses- it chops every now and then.
If you take the bottle off even when its like a little bit from empty the o-ring will burst out and break into many pieces. everytime you take it out to lube and clean the spring guide will come out. now i will just say this dont waste your hard earned money on it
I would not get this product because it is very easy to break apart.
good stock setup but if you want new grips it looks cool lol
Lightest gun i've ever used
Since it's a few years old upgrades (although available) are harder to find.
I've always had great experiences with this gun, and although reviews say it has bad accuracy it can hit a target from 75 feet no problem. I always thought it looked really cool and for $150 total it is a bargain. In my opinion if you don't get this gun you missing out. Compared to Tippman's and even other speedball guns it is one of the lightest guns on the market. Give it a try, for $150 it's worth finding a great gun
14" rifled and ported barrel
cheap hopper with gravity feed
Easy to take apart and clean
Accurate with a good barrel
Stock barrel is incredibly horrible
this gun is a tad underpowered, but its so cheap that its worth it.
if you are thinking about getting a first gun, get this one.
GET NEW BARREL.
the stock is the worst barrel i have ever used.
i recommend at least a 14"
after a while you will want to get a better gun, because you will want something with more power. But it does make a great first gun if you buy a new barrel.
I recommend this Gun for a first-timer in paintballing.
Its amazingly good for its price. I bought it with a whole kit for $120.
The view loader is a good starter gun and is fast it shoots long distances and strait. this was my first gun and i liked it a lot it has a nice double triger looks cool easy to take apart i am going to give it a 10 because it is a good gun
-Shoots okay for a stock barrel(takes spyder threads)
Chops now and then.
Well i had this gun for a long time.I used to play speed ball with the big boys cause i was poor and had barely any money.It kept up well with other guns and it packs a puch when you shoot point blank.This was my first gun and i really liked it.It's a great begginer gun and i reccomend it.
Just get it if you're low on cash,very good begginer gun.
Spyder MR2 but that doesn't really compare with this gun
Viewloader Lynx no upgrades
This gun is perfect for a beginner. For 100 bucks you get the gun, tank, hopper, mask, and a squeegie. It's definitally not the most accurate of guns but for the price you can't expect too much. The accuracy problem is easily solved with a barrel. Sure, I have only been playing for three months but I have played a ton of games and never had a problem with this gun. Nothing has broke on it.....NOTHING. In fact I am still using the origional O-ring on the co2 but that is just a matter of keepng it lubed and knowing how to take it off properly. This gun is also extermely gas efficient. On average I can get somewhere around 600-700 shots off with my 9oz. tank. I have also shot thousands of balls and haven't broke a single ball. Another thing I like about this gun is that it is so simple a toddler could strip it down and put it back together. Last but not least is the handle it is the most comfortable handle I have ever held but the rubber grips on it are held on with some ghetto screws.
If you are a beginner or even an intermediate player this is a great first gun and/or backup gun. Maybe I just got a freak good one but I have never had any problems or chopped any balls with it. Sure, it is not the most accurate of guns but that's what upgrades are for. I would recommend this gun to anyone looking to get into this sport and for $100 it's a steal. Just keep it properly cleaned and lubed in other words take care of it like you would any other gun and it will perform for you. Remember I am rating this as a beginners gun or backup gun for a intermediate player.
