Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
One of the newest additions of Ariakon is the SIM-15 marker.† With its sleek styling and performance, the SIM-15 has all the basic features you would expect like .68 caliber bore size, double trigger frame, integrated carrying handle, and much more at a price you wouldn't expect.†

Reliability is an important factor with any marker.†You don't want to get bunkered while fixing your marker on the field.† That is why the SIM-15 is constructed of both aluminum alloys and hardened polymers, and contains only the highest quality internal parts making it reliable and dependable even in the worst of situations.†

Since the SIM-15 is compatible with most SIM-4 accessories and upgrades you will have plenty of choices down the road to customize your marker with your own unique style and flavor.†

The SIM-15 continues with Ariakon's tradition of quality and durability at a price you can afford.†

Products Used:
Tippmann 98, Rap5
Marker Setup: I have a plain Ariakon Sim 15 with the magazine kit a sniper barrel, and a Q loader.
Recommended
Upgrades:
You will really need to get a aluminum feed port, mine broke and I lost 200 paintballs out of my Q loader. Be prepared to buy another rod that connects the cocking lever,bolt and striker, it will break, I had a friend make me a new one out of stainless steel.
Strengths: It looks cool, and it is for the most part accurate.
Weaknesses: Cheap parts that break, too sensetive to broken paint.
Review: Im currently on my second Sim 15 (my first one was stolen). I am playing a lot more paintball recently and I have realized that I should never have bought a second one. I have to continiously dismantle my gun because of broken paint during a game.

I convinced a friend to by a Sim4, he shot me twice and both times it broke the skin. The break in period sucks, you need to go through a lot of paint to be able to adjust the velocity.

Conclusion: Dont buy a Sim 15, I would really recomend buying a tippmann instead. They are completely upgradable and extremely reliable. I made the mistake of focusing on realism rather than relaibility and I paid the price, twice.
