T68 Pistol - Firestorm trigger, 10 and 20 round magazines, assorted barrels, flexi-air stock, bottom line adapter
firestorm (electronic) trigger, extra magazines.
I got an up an down shoulder holster for a scoped revolver and the marker fits it great.
Accuracy, toughness, customization, ease of use
Plastic grips, Lack of documentation
The gun itself is very versatile and rugged. It is also big! I have large hands and this thing almost fills them completely.
I have used it in all sorts of setups ranging from simple single shot pistol, to sniper rifle, to automatic weapon (with a 3 inch spyder barrel it makes an awesome smg).
It has always proven much more accurate than my last pistol (an Ariakon Overlord which has since been sold). I havent taken any target shots to test grouping since the day I received it, but I can say that I have yet to have a game where I could not pin someone down completely with just the pistol.
This marker will go to hell and back with you. It has been through mud, rain, and weekend long scenario play and has never missed a step. Very little plastic is used in its construction. It is a little towards the heavy side, but I found that reassuring.
From one 12 gram c02 cartridge I can get anywhere from 24 to 30 shots. Have never had a leakage problem.
The electronic trigger option is a T68 mechanical trigger modified to hold the internals of a Spyder firestorm trigger. There was no documentation on the use of the trigger with the marker when i received it, but the rap4 website has instructions for the trigger listed on the page that shows it as a spyder add-on. (search for Spyder accessories and it should come up)
My one major problem with this marker is the plastic grip.
The rubber grip that came with the marker originally was wonderful, but the plastic on the electronic trigger is exactly the same as on the Spyder firestorm, and does not fit the contour of the pistol handle. Since the contours dont match it took some getting used too, but the plastic also makes me occasionally feel as if i might crack them just by gripping the gun. The grips also keep your fingers from resting in the most comfortable position, which also mad me occasionally feel as if the marker might start slipping out of my hand.
The plus side of changing to the electronic trigger is versatility. The full auto and 3 round burst settings add a ton to scenario games, and you should see the look on someones face when they get 7 out of 10 balls to the mask from a pistol in less than a second.
I absolutely loved this gun without the electronic trigger, and the only thing keeping me from giving it a 10 now are the grips (I am having custom wooden grips made to replace the plastic)
Spyder MR1, 6 position sniper stock, Rap4 22" Super Sniper Barrel, Powerline scope

You can run way faster with just a pistol
Seal for the c02 can fall out
Oh my jebus, this gun is incredible. i actually prefer it over my MR1. this pistol is just as accurate as any other gun i've used. it doesn't matter that it only has 10 shots, it's so accurate for a good player... that's 10 kills! it's a great looking gun too, i was getting compliments from everyone. it especially excels at urbanball, i was doing a small match with just my team and it worked awesome. the co2 replacement is easy just unscrew it and the cartridge should fall out, then you just pop in a new one, plus you get like 30 shots per 12 gram. and it's amazing how much faster you can move when you have just a pistol. there's also upgrades like a stock, hopper, and co2 attachments, and you can screw a barrel into it. although i prefer not to, because once you do that it stops looking like a pistol. that's personal preference though, i didn't find it to be anymore accurate with a barrel attached to it anyway (if it made a difference it was very small) if i was going to upgrade it would be all internals. but anyway, the only weakness i found is that if you unscrew co2 before its completely used up, it can blow out the seal. but if you use all your co2 that shouldn't be a problem.
i say buy it. last scenario game i went to, i brought my MR1 just in case, but never touched it. i happily went the whole day with just my T68, plus i think it's on sale right now. i give it a 9 because it's amazing, but if you lose the seal, you're screwed until you can order a new one.
9 out of 10

I use a Bt4 Ironhorse for my main marker.The T68 for backup.My son uses the T68 for him main with the sniper kit.Which adds barrel extension,scope and carbine stock. We added the conversion for a bottle with a drop forward to his marker
tank adaptor(if being used for main marker) and external velocity adjustor or expansion chamber
Very accurate pistol.More so as rifle with barrel extension
The knob for the 12grams is very difficult to use with barrel extension on.
The pistol is a good quality marker. We own two of them. One hasn't given us a moments trouble but is not fired as much as the other. The velocity screw has a pointed end and broke through the velocity pin. A metal disc that was used in older guns corrected this. Most established paintball repair shops will have a few of these laying around. The trigger broke on the front where the return spring mounts. And the bolt split on the top seam,which I repaired with a soldering iron and some emory cloth.
The company however has been very helpful and has sent us replacement parts at no charge when we have had a problem with it. The gun is a little loud but your dealing with a short barrel it's going to be. Other than a few problems I have been very pleases with overall function and reliabilty. Accesaries are available for this marker through the company and they have some pretty cool upgrade kits and dressup kits available.
I would recommend for a good side arm for serious woodsball players as it is a little pricey. But dependable for backup use.Can't recomend for main marker though
