This gun features complete ANS aftermarket parts all the way from the valve to the trigger frame. The 45 frame has the quick fire trigger system installed. The marker also comes with a Dye Boomstick Barrel, Shocktech bolt, and CP Flame drop Forward.
The Vortex Paintball Autococker is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
Spyder Compact Deluxe modified with Low Pressure upgrades, 12" TearDrop barrel and 20oz CO2. 2mm Trigger pull
A bud of mine has one of these. I asked him if I could shoot it and he said no problemo. So I did... Big mistake, now I'm forking out the cash to get one too.
He had his fitted with a WGP Hinge frame and I have to say the whole feel of the marker was very nice. Very smooth and light trigger pull. I shot a string of about 40 rounds and hit this small little 3" target just about every time. I love this thing, me gets one now!
Not to mention the milling on the body is amazing... they don't have the current milling on the review page here and check out the spinal tap body, it's amazing looking. Almost like a "ripper-lite" lol.
Once you shoot one you're addicted. There's no going back people!
A great cocker for a pretty damned good price... Looks great! New players will crap their pants at the sight of it ;)

I have been playing for a while and have used almost every marker out there. I have an angel, impulse, shocker, and a few others. This marker runs with all of them. The marker has a smooth trigger with no slop. The CP barrel that comes with it seems to match up well with most paint and the marker. Marker runs at a little over 200psi and can be adjusted easily to ones liking. Able to rain long streams of paint if needed but can snap shoot too. I have a chrome and black one and it always get comments at the field.
Had a small problem with the 3-way leaking but a slight rod adjustment and all is well now.
This is a great marker. I was never big on cockers and for a while people had almost made me afraid to get one. After getting a STO and not having many problems I moved up to this marker. I do not regret my decision at all. This marker rocks. Dead on accurate and smooth trigger make for a devistating marker. I love this marker. The price is a little high but for what you are getting I think it is worth it. If you do not know much about cockers I would not recommend getting this marker. The tuning can be a little tricky since it runs low pressure. Might give some people a hard time.
I have lent to marker to a few teammates and now they want to buy it off me. Not happening they can get their own. I will not give this thing up.
I have used many, tippmann, almost every spyder, STO, talon, angel, GT 2000, and a lot more, and I would take the vortex over all of them!
I own last years model of the vortex (the blue to black to silver one), Dye 12 inch ultralite barrel, Sonix regulator, Taso drop forward, Warped macro line, VL screw elbow, 12volt rev. hopper, and nitrogen tank.
A good barrel, regulator, nitrogen, etc., (well basically what you need to shoot the gun).
~ACCURATE ( way more important than speed)
~good BPS ( balls per second) ( it doesn't shoot as fast as angel, but you don't need to).
~not to many people have them
Nothing at all, it is VERY good.
If you want something that is can shot very strait and still fast, and you have the money go out and get one of these, you will love it. If I could I would give the rating more than a 10, and that guy above with all the 3's, he is dumb for ruining the perfect 10 of this gun, it deserves it, he was just mad that the gun is even better than him.
