Good quality compound bow
Strengths: Super quiet....I mean you can't hear it from 10 ft away.
Weaknesses: Cock every shot.
Review: I bought my airow gun from Ebay. My first impression of the airow gun was cheesy packaging but it was well protected in that packaging. Once I removed it from its plastic package I was impressed. The quality was top notch, all aluminum was finished well and the barrel has a very shiney inside. The instructions took me step by step and everything and it is adjustable for us left handers. The airow gun comes with a full set of extra O rings and all the allen wrenchs you need to install and adjust it. Even though the barrel is spider threaded a spider barrel won’t fit on the airow gun without grinding down the barrel right behind the theads because a standard spider barrel has a neck that is too thick. You don’t need to grind much away and it won’t stop you from using the barrel on another marker. I used a dremmel to thin it down and it fit fine. The airow gun/compound bow setup feels very solid and I felt confident with its strength right away…it is built tough.

It isn’t the most accurate marker ever…but is as accurate as the most accurate markers. It takes an aim to be accurate and the person will decide just how accurate the airow gun is. You must cock the airow gun before every shot, I tried to hold the cocker back and fire, the ball just exploded at the feed neck…so you have to cock every shot. I have shot 300 balls through it and haven’t broken one ball (except the holding the cocker back test). Consistent FPS rates are made by pulling the bow to the same place every time. I could get my shots within 2 FPS or 10fps off depending how constant my pulls were. I tried aiming down the barrel to fire and it was very accurate like that, I did buy fiber optic bow hunting sight and after dialing it in I used one pin for up to 75ft and a second pin for 90 to 120 ft. The bow sights work well and you can really dial in your shot, and as long as you fire correctly and your using a round ball and the wind doesn’t move the paintball it will hit true every time. I have never fired a real bow in my life and I could drop a ball in a 12” circle from 90ft nearly every time, as I got tired it made aiming harder. The stock barrel is very accurate. The airow gun is also dead quiet…I mean there is no marker there that is even close. From 10ft away it can’t be heard at all.

Game play is completely different than with a normal marker, I play limited ball with my pistol and pump all the time so I am very used to limited ball. This takes it to a new level, you have to cock each ball and then pull the bow string, aim then fire all while being fired at…it is a very different feel. You must also get your body behind the bow and not just poke your head around a tree and shoot, these are not negatives at all just my impressions of my first day of play. It takes me back to when I first started playing limited ball against fully auto guys and the rush of a single shot kill after 100 balls came flying by. I am sure as I get comfortable with the bow, I will be able to relax a little more just like going to my pistol.
Conclusion: Over all I give it a 10 out of 10 for construction, accuracy and cool factor. This is for you limited ball players who want to sneak up and take a shot and not be heard at all, or for long balling it will be accurate as you are from 120+ feet.

Review: ok. i got the airow gun maker and mounted to a wood recurve take down hunting bow. it cost me about $300 in the end. with the wood recurve i had to custom make a offset mount for the plunger/arrow unit. it took me several months to get the marker fire ready. the 50lb draw weight on the bow is too much for me to fully draw, so i cant fire at more then 139 fps. on the first outing, i let my friend try it out and we discovered that the plunger unit was too long, i hadn't cut it short enough, and so shot off the from case and broke the front air transfer case. order parts. in all this i will say that airowgunsales.com is a wonderful group to work with. anyway, the part comes in and the airow gun works again. i moved the mounting bracket back so the plunger wouldn't hit the front case as much, but it still needs to be cut. again, i let a friend try and the same thing happens without broken parts.... great. where lock tight when you need it? non the less. the airowgun is a fun marker and a new unique way to play. there are a few things to keep in mind. its a 20" barrel, so you have a full extended arm plus 20+"... that's one long X plane on a graph. then since i.m using a recuve, the Y plane is 60". i'm glade there isn't a Z plane on this. Quiet, yes. not heart from 10 ft, i don't think so. basicly, its a good marker. major challenge and id say something to use to learn new skill but dont get rid of your semi or pump for this.
Conclusion: Its great for a new paintball experience but its no main marker for the masses

None -- the airow gun really is unique. I suppose it could be considered a pump marker, of which I have experience with various Sheridan-based pumps as well as WGP snipers.
Marker Setup: I use a wide range of markers, from several pumps, a Tiberius 8 pistol, an AKA Viking, or a TM7.

Upgrades:
None, maybe a red dot if you're into paintball sights
Strengths: Quiet, fairly accurate, unique
Weaknesses: Larger than normal profile, manually loaded
Review: I picked up one of the dealer's promotional sample Airow guns at Oklahoma D-Day last June. Included was the marker and a Diamond compound bow with a 50 pound draw. I'm always looking for the next challenge and for esoteric markers for my collection, and the airow gun naturally fit into my collection as an unusual design. I paid the dealer his $250 and left with my new toy.

The Airow gun is exactly what it advertises -- a quiet, accurate paintball marker. If you are experienced with archery, this marker will come naturally to you. If you're used to traditional paintball markers, it will take some real practice in the backyard before you are up to speed and really ready to play with this marker.

With the 50 pound bow, it shoots about 230 FPS consistently. With a heavier pull, you could achieve speeds closer to normal field limits. I personally enjoy it the way it is, because you have most of the range of a normal marker while the 50 pound draw isn't so hard as to make your arm tired after a day of paintball.

I played an 8-hour scenario game with it this September, and I had a lot of fun doing it. With careful aiming, the airow gun proved to be just as accurate as any other paintball marker. It requires a new set of skills to shoot correctly, as most paintball techniques don't apply well. While it may seem impractical to many, it offers a new and unique view to paintball.

My only real complaint is that you must manually pull the bolt back to allow a paintball to chamber before drawing the bow. It would have been nice to focus only on drawing and firing the bow, but the design is pretty simple (read: reliable) the way it is.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with my purchase. It's a fun challenge, and it serves its purpose well in my collection. I want to take this to Castle Conquest sometime in the future.
Conclusion: If you're looking for a unique challenge to supplement your other paintball marker, this could well be the marker for you. If you're looking at a first marker or any general purpose marker, you may want to look elsewhere. This is not a marker for everyone, and as long as you keep it in the niche it belongs, it performs exceptionally well. If you try to take this outside of the niche style of play, you will not enjoy yourself nearly as much.

I'm going to give it a 9 only because nothing is perfect and I wish there had been a way for paintballs to automatically feed so the only thing you need to concentrate on is drawing and firing the bow.
