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.

The Ariakon SIM-15 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
I have a plain Ariakon Sim 15 with the magazine kit a sniper barrel, and a Q loader.
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.
It looks cool, and it is for the most part accurate.
Cheap parts that break, too sensetive to broken paint.
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.
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.
