I have a paradox with just an air through grip, and my co2 tanks have anti-syphon tubes.
gas through grip
it has some pretty good accuracy. Good on gas.
no e grip.
I bought this gun and it has shot great out of the box. I'm able to shot people with just one shot, so i dont need an e grip. The metal trigger frame holds up great Ive beet the crap out of mine and it still dont miss a beat.
this is a great gun for people with low cash flow and are just begining. Also make sure to get a gas though grip and replace the plastic lines with steel braid.
Inferno, JT Xcellerator, tippman 98, latest move to Impulse.
Gas thru grip, drop forward, 12v revvy, 14" teardrop
12v revvy, Gas thru grip - not sure the drop forward helps, barrel depends on paint
A cheap gun, works well if kept clean/lubed and care is given to selecting paint that fits in your barrel. My mate has a better looking and more expensive excellerator, and it seems he is using my paradox (my backup) more than me! If you want a gun that works like an inferno but looks a little different with options to upgrade then i would reccomend this marker. This gun can fire fast if used with a good hopper. The stubby barrel this comes with is great if you like getting up close! A reliable marker.
Although this gun is supposed to be compatible with all spyder parts, several parts (like the grip) are not fully compatible (had some trouble fitting my drop forward from eclipse). The trigger postition is further forward than i would like but you soon get used to it. It occasionally beaks paint but any gun will if not used right :-)
A good starter/site marker with a little individuality thrown in. Works well, good on gas, has a good rate of fire, mechanical so electrics won't go down on you. In all honesty I reccomend this marker for beginners . It can be a little loud and gives quite a kick for a paintball marker - up to you whether this is a good or bad point :-)
