at least a new barrel get a mi 14 inch barrel ported and a vertical expansion chamber
light and spyder threads, . can upgrade . Don't use much co2
Fullauto speed 9bps
I love this marker when i bought it i thought i was getting a peace of crap , boy was i wrong, i use it more then any of my other markers. the trigger is unbelievable, little to no pull just do touch it and it shoots, man i love this trigger, andit is good on co2 it don't hardly use any at all. keep an eye on this marker it is going places. just like any gun its gonna chop balls every gun will no matter how much you pay for it. there's no 100 anti chop. but i will say i put 1000 threw it mighty fast and it didn't chop no ball. i will say i put a cheap vl hopper on it the cat tail and it did shoot faster.
Buy it you wont be disappointed this is a good gun for 100.00 i give it a 10 because you base the marker on performance not price or name and this one hasn't let me down yet.
sad when a low end 100.00 performs as good as a high end 500.00 but hey im glad i bought another for my wife.
ALL AMERICAN 2PIECE BARREL
ShOOTS A PAINTBALL
BrKS DOWN FREAQUENTLY
PaTS FALL OFF
Fo MY BDAY I GOT THIS GUN BECAUSE IT WAS CHEEP AND IT HAD A LIGHT TRIGGER PULL I WENT OUT AND PLAYED AND I ONLY HAD TO FILL MY TANK ONCE AND THAT WAS BEFORE THE GAMES THIS THING DOESNT HOG GAS IT IS AN AMAZONG GUN FOR THE PRICE
Bu THIS GUN IF U WANT A CHEEP GUN WITH A LIGHT TRIGGER PULL
Tippmann 98 custom with:
Smart Parts Progresive 16"
Tapco T6 butt stock
Cyclone feed system
Low profile Butler Creek cap(realy a scope cap)
Electric hopper,16"Smart Part Progresive barrel,sight rail,red dot sight,expansion chamber,New paint job.
It has 3 round burst and it is a Spyder clone.
It gets real dirty and it is electric.:(
I do not own this gun any more so I will try to remember as much as possible about this gun.
I am going to compare this gun to my Tippmann 98 custom.Here are the good things on the Tippmann.
1.It it made by Tippmann
2.It is sturdy like a rock.
3.It has alot of accessories.
4.You can put a response trigger on it.
Now here are the little bad things.
1.The accessories are to much.
2.It gets dirty hast but hey what do you expect from a gas blow back!
Now for the Syndicate.Here are the good things.
1.It is a Spyder clone
2.It accepts spyder threads.
3.It is very cheap.
4.It is somewhat light
5.You can ramp it good.
now here are the bad things.
1.It is electric. You always have to buy new batteries.
2.You break paint like mad without a electric hopper.
3.It is very shiny. I spray painted mine and the spray paint came right off.
I liked this gun when I had it but I needed money for accessories for my Tippmann.:) If you are new at paintball I recommend this gun.
I have a Smart Parts Shocker with a Halo B with rip drive.
Definitely get a new barrel. The stock is tiny. Also you should get new grips.
You can at least shoot faster than a semi.
Pretty much the whole gun.
The paradox electro is not that good of a gun. It will be alrite if you just start playing. But if you then decide you want to start a team or sumthin you will immedietly have to go out and buy a new gun.
Remeber you get what you pay for..... which means if you buy a gun for a cheap price then expect the gun to be cheap.
I would not recommend this gun. If you are looking for a gun at a cheap price you should get the spyder pilot.
barrel, electric hopper, new valve, a regulator, and a drop
cheap (I only paied $57 on ebay)
takes most Spyder upgrades
Grip frame is plastic (it broke on my old one)
Some parts can fall off
this is a great beginner gun or pro gun. It is strong and durable. However, like most stock guns, it could use a few upgrades such as a barrel, a drop, and all the normal suff that you like on your gun to make is unique. this is made simple because it takes most spyder upgrades.
this is a good gun and if you put some money into it, it will be as good as any other
I give this gun a 8 because there is no perfect paintball (so none should get a 10)
and there is always a better gun out there.
Very good strong durable gun needs some upgrades but takes spyders up grades that's a plus ive seen better gun but not for this price and quality shots very fast and very accurate great beginner gun or pro gun witch ever you prefer but over all a very good investment but be willing to get some up grades
Very good gun need s some touchupsgreat over all gun
Misfits(Made by the same company as Paradox)
Syndicate Paradox electro
14 inch barrel
New grip, on off drop/reg
Empire Reloader 2
I'll probably get a Evil Venturi bolt(I think it will fit.)
Price (I got mine for about 80$)
Full auto-only about 7 bps
Some parts fall off.
Co2 can freeze in gun.
I got this about six months and it has served me well (as a matter of fact, it still is!) This is an excellent gun for beginning players looking for an affordable electro marker with a decent ROF (I can shoot about 12 bps on mine) Anyway, as you read above, the stock barrel is absolutely worthless, definitely upgrade that, as well as the hopper (if you don't want to chop, get one) Another good thing about this gun is it is user friendly. Easy to clean and take care of.
If you get a low pressure system, this gun operates insanely. What I mean by that is it shoots far and straight. And in the cold. My friend let me use his crossfire 45/4500 tank and I shot down about 3 people at long range. (May not sound like a lot, but for a low-end electro, that's not too shabby.)
A very good gun for the price, and will perform well with the right upgrades.
Tested Spyders, Tippmans - I prefer the Paradox to Spyders, but Tippmans are still nice
Syndicate Gear Paradox Electro marker
Phat Pipe barrel
Viewloader revy hopper
Fuel 12 oz co2 tank
New barrel, electric hopper
Pretty cheap low-end electro.
Some parts tend to fall off.
This is my first real paintball gun. If I had more money, I might be able to afford a better one, but right now, I'm content with mine. I actually started off with a BE Eradicator, I think called the Marauder now. It was the most horrible thing... It chopped like crazy. I'll write a review about that one later. However, when I went to the Paradox, I was amazed. The choppage dropped to a minimum. I started to actually be able to hit things. The stock barrel is average, but I'd still buy a new one if you got this gun. It shoots pretty fast. Fast enough for me anyway. You could use an electric hopper with it if you're going to let it open up and really shoot any paint. It's nice to hold, and I've never had any problems with the gun malfunctioning. The velocity adjuster screw almost fell out on me once, though, but I didn't have it all the way down. Also, the anti-double feed mechanism on the side of it can get a little loose, as well.
Overall, I believe this is a very great gun for the price. If you've got just a little bit of money and only play for fun, then this is a good gun to buy.
All stock Syndicate Electro. CO2, VL200 very hopper.
I know I'm getting a Freak Jr! Upgrade the barrel.
price, trigger, e-grip!
poor grouping @ full auto, 8bps with auto only
Flawless overall package. Read teh above for everything. On the first day I hooked my Parry up with my friend's CO2 and we assaulted a tree. Heh. Full auto is a great, but it's sub-10 bps. The good part: the godlike trigger is 10+ bps friendly. Don't buy a Evolution for this baby, it can read full BPS with a vert hopper. Saves you money. Overall, a beauty for the price. GREAT beginner. As good as a Spyder, just a tad cheaper.
Just read the review. I love teh marker, no one loses with it.
used a spyder shutter and sonix, and TL Plus (paradox is better). use my friends orr-acle autococker frequently =) (completely smashes everything in this category, cant compare blowbacks and e-cockers, there is just to large a performance difference)
mainly stock, but with new 14 inch JT barrel
accurate, fast firing, light, durable
loud, short stock barrel
this marker is really great, the stock barrel is accurate for a stock barrel, but REALLY LOUD (although when firing in full auto for suppressive fire, the loud firing really makes people put their heads down, works well for scaring people) Its very light. the full auto mode is great for suppressive fire, while the 3 shot burst is good for close range fighting to make sure you hit what you wanted to hit. this is a great beginners/intermediate gun, and for $90 its a steal, hell, even for $150 it would be a steal. its easy to field strip and maintain. the people i play with all have spyders (TL's, Shutters, etc) and they like this one the best, not just because of the firing modes, but because, ( and I am not joking at all) after going through 4000 rounds of paint, i have yet to chop a ball, even on full auto (although I have jammed, but this is not a problem as all you have to do is pull the bolt back a little).
this is a great gun for people who are serious players but just dont have the money for an autococker or the like. I love this gun... (but cockers are still way better) I give it a 10, because in its own category it is a great, simple, effective gun
10 out of 10
