The Blackpoint Engineering JCS MKX8 is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
This marker needs an electronic grip, action needs to be smoothed by reducing the weight of some of the internal components, limited upgradability is a really big problem with this gun. For how heavy it is it doesn't perform all that well.
It looks cool, but then so does the SP-8 or an upgraded Tippmann
Weight of the moving parts, very loud, and not all that accurate
This gun handles a lot like the SP-8 in terms of usability and feel. What it lacks is the SP-8's fit and finish. Even with the standard barrel you can barely hear the SP-8 firing. This thing literally booms. For the money, there are a number of much better markers out there, including autocockers, the innumerable variations of the Tippmann markers, the SP-8, and the Armotech style markers.
If you really want the realistic feel of a scenario marker, get an Armotech or SP8. This gun does feel like it is well manufactured but it's just not as capable as a lot of the other options out there. The G36 mod for the A-5 looks just as good and performs better, and the SP-8 has this thing beat all hollow. This thing is way too expensive for what you're getting.
