I bought about 20 of them and I am glad that I did it. We use it as a rental marker .
They are much cheaper than for example Tippmann but no less useful.
GTV might have better connection (hammer with bolt). This thing breaks. But after 3 years of rental abuse it does not seem as gig deal ( some parts need to be changed).
GTV may be also a good marker for beginners (about 15 fellows from our team have started their paintball adventure with GTV or GT 2000).
Our Team (scenario) still uses them as backup marker,especially when playing in winter ( CO2) at temp. -15C
Very good marker for that price.
Easy to clean.
green gtv1, 16 oz. moly co2 tank, 32 degrees quiet riot barrel(14 inch)
EVERYTHING!!!this gun is perfect!!!!
Are you joking?This gun has weaknesses what did you say?
BUY THIS GUN!!! YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!! i have had it for 2 years now and not ONCE broken a ball. can you say that about any others? if you need a good reliable gun for a lonng time, dont waist any more time , go out and buy it! --seriosly--
GTV1, expansion chamber, bottom-line, drop forward, 14 inch All American barrel, 12 volt VL Revolution.
definately get a expansion chamber, after market barrel
GREAT gun for the price, holds up extremelly well, NEVER broken a ball in it.
little screw in trigger comes loose and falls out.
Definately a good gun to buy, never had any problems with it, cleaning is easy and effortless, as well as putting it back together. It is rated good for a reason. I guess another complaint would be that my expansion chamber comes loose every once in a while. A very good begginer gun and price is amazingly cheap, great buy, just go out and get one. See for yourself.
Paintball Inc. Gtv1, Expansion chamber, Marco line kit.
New barrel. i am buying a tear drop soon.
very good price
nice feed setup
fairly straight shooting
kinda heavy but i think youll live
needs a new barrel but its ok without
this gun shoots fairly accurlty, and has a pretty good shoot rate, id say 10 balls per second, if ur good. the feed is good because its side vert. feed so u can sight down ur barrel and have the hopper vert without the elbow. the barrel isnt that great but will work fine till u upgrade to a new one. i suggest getting a expansion chamber with macro line or stainless steel line for it, dont buy the micro, not enoufh air flow.
Spyder Classic with red dot sight, 9ozCO2, Smart Parts progressive 14", stock bolt with venturi removed
new barrel, bottom line, new grip
compare to spyders it is more constant with gas, has bolt without venturi, price, upgradable
grip frame, bad stock barrel, side vertical feed is in way of red dot sight
Nice design. Not like other dinosaur shape lolipop crazy color electric trash.
Shoots very very nice with smart parts progressive barrel. I recommend this barrel for this gun to everybody. With right bore paintballs no more ball breakage. Stock barrel is a piece of trash, I mean it really.With regulator and bottom line it must be almost like cocker. Manufacturer says that side vertical feed is good for mount of red dot or optic sight. Little piece of feed is in way so u cant mout to rail any lonnger optic sight.and if u mount red dot there will be smaller angel of view.
Buy it if u want cheap reliable gun for rec ball, or if u r begginer, with some upgrades u can make nice gun also for intermediate players
None just about. Its slightly inaccurate but for $90 who cares.
I got this gun as a gift and have loved it since. It hardly chops balls at all. The only problem I ever had is within a month the cup seal got a leak but this gun came with a spare cup seal so no real damage was done. For $90 this is the best gun. Most people wont know what it is though people looked at me crazy when I said "A GTV1" but after a couple shots who cares what the name is. I love this gun for the shear fact its so easy to upgrade and field strip. The setup is simple so its always gonna work. I love this gun, anyone who wants a good cheap gun should get this. Yes its speed of 10bps is slightly slow but this really aint much of a speed ball gun though.
It has served me well and has served other people well. Its strong as an ox andreally never get the credit it deserves
Gtv 1,Homemade wood grip,Smart Parts Progressive 14 barrel
Longer barrel, or just new barrel ´cause stock barrel is just pipe like from bathroom.
Bottom line is good thing, but I dont like it because it looks bad.I prefer,stock it looks better than Co2.I dont like stock grip, that I just made new, wood grip frame, it looks more natural, some people want to change grip with trigger because it is made from plastic, but trust me that plastic is more reliable than metal.
Design,price, and reliability.Accuracy and rate of fire is average.
I wrote it below.
It is my first own gun, and I have it just for one season, but I am very happy to have it, because I dont have any problem to this moment, so just go and buy it.
It is great gun for weekend games and recrea pb.One famous pb player says:
"Hodne muziky za malo penez."It means:"Much music for small penny."
And thats just true.Some rentals fields rent it for 3 years and they are fully satisfated.Everybody says:"It has vertical feed on the right site of gun, so u can put red dot sight in the midlle of a gun on the sightrail."But it is not true.YOU CANT PUT THERE SIGHT, because vertical feed will be in your sight, and you will see big sh*t.
It is good gun for this price, you will make some nice frags with it........................
Paintball Inc GTV1
J&J Ceramic barrel 16"
32 degrees expansion chamber
Psycho Ballistics Drop Forward w/ UFA
GT Force II Cyclone bolt w/ beavertail
after market barrel (this is a must!!!!!!!!!!!!)
bottomline adaptor with expansion, if you go bottomline without an expansion chamber than it shoots liquid co2 whick screws up accuracy and is a waste of air.
comes in a good complete kit (Battle Box)
unlimited upgrades available
looks awsome red
harder to strip...
all upgrades must be bought, comes with none
I really like this gun. It has been very relyable for me. The best thing was how easy it was to get started in paintball. I bought the complete kit (battle box) and i was set to play. Another good thing about it that you dont find on many other guns is that you dont need an elbow to put the hopper on. I hate on other guns how you have to straiten out your hopper after every big move you make durring play because it twisted around from you running. On this gun the powerfeed is vertical and the hopper fits right into it with no elbow - very good. The only thing that really bothers me is how big and heavy it is. spyders are much smaller and lighter. And there is no feild strip pin so you must have an allen wrench to pull out two screws vs just pulling out a pin with no tools, like spyders. Oh and another good thing is that all the o-rings are the standard co2 tank rings so they arent hard to find. Mine is red and It looks great in all colors. (but not black) I will soon put an electronic trigger on mine so it will be full auto.
Over all this is a good gun, there are some down sides to it but I am still happily using mine. Oh and so all of you know: IT TAKE SPYDER BARRELS. This is a good thing since spyder barrels are everywhere. You will HAVE TO buy a good barrel. I recomend this gun for anyone who doesnt mind carrying a little waight around and doesnt want to mess with those crappy elbows. Its a good gun!
Silver GTV1, Black venturi bolt, 12" J&J ceramic barrel
Expansion chamber and a better bolt if you want, Definitely a better barrel and a motorized hopper
Cheap, reliable, and the valve is huge! Can run on an almost empty tank
Plastic grip makes me nervous about tightening the screws
This gun whips the llamas a**!! I went out with a bunch of guys that go to tourneys and win and even they were impressed at its performance. Although not alot of ppl have heard of this gun ( they called it "the f***edifiknow" ) it's one of the best guns i have used. If I can take out a guy using an E-99 w/ this marker you know it rocks!
if you get a new bolt make sure it has a removable pin. stock spyder bolt pins are too short, you have to change the pin from the stock bolt to the new bolt.
Buy it! It takes spyder barrels & bolts and uses tank o-rings. All that = affordable easy to find parts and simple maintenence.
viewloader genesis surge df, smart parts freak jr barrel, pure energy 68ci, x-board revvy and a custom drop forward
an expansion chamber, a drop forward and maybe an after market barrel
easy to strip and clean
good rate of fire
powerfeed is offset to the right so you can you a scope
doesn't chop balls
all o-rings are standard bottle orings, so you can get them anywhere
this is a great beginner gun or a great back up. it is basically a spyder with better accuracy and cooler looks. i've fired probably 800 rounds through this and i haven't had one break yet. this is probably the best bang for the buck gun out there, about the same as the diablo sabotage. buy this gun, you won't regret buying it and you'll have years of great service out of it.
