JT Protium, 3000 psi HPA, Evolution 3, Smart Parts Tear Drop Barrel
Finding replacement parts because it is out of production
Just got this gun at store for $110. It's great for what I need which is a cheap rec gun that can at least hold some water against faster markers. Definitely use a power hopper or it is chop city. Mine runs awsome. I just shot 1500 rounds with no chops and only one barrel break.
I got mine for $110. I hear people are getting them for as low as $60. For that price this gun is a better value than most out there
-SP Ion original
-Shocktech roller trigger
-VL Evo 2
- DYE sticky grip
-WorrGames 50ci 3000psi tank
-16" SP Linear impulse barrel
I can't really find any for this...
Its pretty accurate
Good on CO2, didn't try HPA
LED E-Grip is nice
can be loud at high bps
The feedneck is very high
I had this gun for around a year then got enough money and upgraded to an Ion.
When i had this gun, it was very good with keeping up with my pace. I really liked this gun, straight from the get go. I took very good care of it and it did the same for me on the woodsball field. The only reason i upgraded is when i started speedballing and i wanted som ething that would be more upgradeable in the future. So i sold to a friend who still has it and i do routine matinence for him when needed (cleaning it for example). I really wish i still had this gun and i will probably buy another since they run around 60-80 bucks now, and its a really long drive for me to get compressed air or nitrogen anywhere.
If you're jujst starting out, I'd reccomend this be your first gun. It tells you when you should clean it so you learn how often for your future guns and its very compatible in the way of any type of play. Its a pretty good buy, wether on ebay or sites like actionvillage.com.
Gravity Feed Hopper
works WAY better on HPA
Chops like a mother w/ co2
This is a Great Beginners gun. 400 dollar retail price is not even close to right. So far I haven't had any problems. And hopefully I won't have any. if your looking for a good beginners gun this is it. great for speed ball and good for woodsball.
If your looking for a good beginners gun this is it. great for speedball and good for woodsball. mostly for speedball though
Good with CO2
3 position trigger
Built in pressure gauge and drop forward.
Only works in semi
I'm a rec ball player so this review is more for newbies and the casual player.
This marker in it's stock configuration isn't bad at all. The accuracy is pretty good on your standard size field. I've used this for both woodsball and speedball and find that I can hold my own against players with better set ups than my own. If you play on really large fields then this gun might not be for you since it does get a bit heavy especially once you get the tank on and accuracy using the stock barrel goes down hill. I've corrected this problem by getting a 14" barrel. It hasn't solved the problem but it's noticeably better.
I'm currently using this marker with your typical gravity hopper but tried it out with some VL e-hopper and can pull off the 17bps this thing is suppose to be rated at.
Has anti-chop delrin bolt. There's a little scoop in the front of the bolt but don't know if that has helped in any real way. There's the LCD in the grip showing shots fired and you have some game timers.
This is an e-marker and thus you need a 9V battery to make it work. It comes with a rechargeable battery and you plug the power supply into the back of the grip. The battery that came with this thing works well for me since I went through a number of speedball games during a 5 hour span and didn't need to recharge it. Worked well during the woodsball game which I think I was there for about 4 hours. This might be because I'm using a gravity hopper and not firing lines of paint at people.
In other reviews I've seen people talk about this marker chopping and I'll address that now. Once the gun chops a ball it's time to get off the field and do a good cleaning. I had ball pieces gumming up the mechanics and nothing was moving at that point. But once I was done cleaning the marker,which by the way is real easy with the release pin, all was well so I don't really have anything bad to say here.
This marker has a built in pressure gauge on the left side and a drop forward for your tank. These are nice features to have and at the time of this review, I think the marker goes for $60 retail so that always nice for a budget player. You also have the omni pressure valve which is a nice feature to change the pressure of the gun. You can't do this while the tank is on unless you have a valve on the tank but once you get everything adjusted as you want it then its fine. Just a minor annoyance for me.
Other than it being heavy I would recommend this gun for the casual player who doesn't want to blow a wad on more expensive markers and still be able to enjoy the sport.

This is my marker. There are many like it, but this one is mine. Without me, my marker is nothing. Without my marker, I am nothing.
Barrel maybe? Great gun right out of the box
Anti-chop derlin bolt
Three way adjustable trigger
I play woodsball so the color is a negative
Only semi auto
Cheap, $50 new in box off ebay. I donâ€™t now where they got $400 from, maybe in 2004. I got this gun for my seven-year-old son. He used it to get one of the veterans we play with out from across the field, about fifty yards. Lucky shot probably but that was right out of the box with only chrono adjustment. Easy one pin pull to get bolt out, and run squeegee all the way thru the gun, and out the barrel. Decent battery life, considering L.C.D. display. Three-way adjustable trigger allows you to put it right where you want it. Great hopper/loader mount. I read some idiots review that this gun does nothing but chop paint. I donâ€™t know W.T.F. his problem was or how you get an ANTI-CHOP bolt to chop paint, but my kid shot this gun all day with no problems, and I was using the cheapest practice paint I could find! I guess JTPRO28 should come over and take lessons from a seven year old on how to operate a marker properly.
For the money I spent on this gun, I could never complain. It came with all the upgrades you would normally have bought separately and paid extra for when you buy a lower grade gun, like a victor II. Great buy, just not for 400 dollars.

havent used and similar products i started off with a brass eagle raider then to a viewloader lancer then i got the Jt Protium
I have a Jt Protium with a 16 inch custom product barrel 9v viewloader revolution hopper and a pure energy n2 tank.
a decently fast hopper i would say an ego 2 or 3 a longer barrel the stock is good but isnt the greatest.
Shoots fast not very loud compared to others, the 3 way adjustable trigger
The gun doesn't have the best accuracy
The whole gun is a very nice gun.It shoots very nice isnt very loud. The color looks really good on the guin. The trigger and trigger frame are excellent. You can easily upgrade the gun. My triple flex bolt broke wich was kinda werid thats the worst thing ever. The OLED is very nice. Kinda expensive in some places but action village had it for $149 and that had a n2 tank with it.
Tested the Ion, old M3, and tested lots of other guns
JT Protium, Phsyco Ballistics Drop with on/off asa, Revo 2, 72ci/3000psi pure energy tank, Smart Parts Progressive barrel
on/off and drop combo
board (if you can find one that fits)
First, I want to say that this gun is good for players that go for fun. This is not a tournament serious gun.
Speed- This is rips pretty fast for what it is. 17 bps isnt slow at all. With a new board, this gun could rip crazy. One problem that I have had is i was ripping it so fast, that the bolt would move so fast the air wouldnt have time to push it back, so i had to recock my gun.
Accuracy- It is pretty dang accurate. I hit a player in the mask from about 60 feet away, only shooting 3 times.
Simplicity- This gun is so simple. The bolt system is a 1,2,3 step to take out and clean. taking the entire gun apart, it took me about 5 minutes. Everything about it is simple
Bolt- The bolt has an awsome spring. I have only chopped once, and that is because the gun has no eyes and Revolution with X-board wont feed as fast as i shoot. The bolt is easy to clean and maintain. Although if the spring or bolt breaks, i cant find any replacement, so good luck there.
Now here is the bad stuff
the gun has no eyes, which means chopping. I didnt get mine for $400, i got it for $120. But for the $400 they made it for, it should at least have eyes and a good board. The board is pretty fast, for this kind of gun. I think it should of had more modes. I also cant find and aftermarket boards. I do not know if they have any that fit, but if they do, i highly suggest to go get one. I hope this was helpfull.
The gun is good for a player that isnt serious about major speedball tournaments. But overall it is a good fast,accurate, simple gun. If you are thinking about getting it, then you probably should.
Fast (for a blow back) it isn't very loud cool color
Not the best for accuracy
This is an awesome gun it is very fast
it isnt 400$ its like 140$ on actionvillage.com
not very loud if you have nitro
if u have a fast hopper the gun will shoot fast
it has a double trigger and it can use nine volts
its a great gun
New barrel (J&J ceramic works EXREMELY well)
revvy or egg II
New reachargable battery
freezes on C02
says 17 bps which i doubt
I got this as my first gun off AVI for about 150-200 dollars, which is how much this gun SHOULD cost. when i took it to the paint ball field i had to turn the velocity adjustment REALLY deep just to break 300 fps. I was running c02 and i started double and triple shooting like wild and i chopped about 20 balls, so i cleaned it out and put in an HPA tank and it worked fine. I got a Revvy x board for free with this and i was in my backyard shooting and, even though i don't have a bps counter, i think i may have broken 10, which is good for a noob like me. and it was still shooting great, and the trigger walks great. i did'nt chop a single ball when i walked it. I put on my buddy's J&J ceramic 14 inch and it shot insanely accurate, about 1-3 feet spread i think. Also, I suggest you get a new rechargeble battery or bring some normal 9v because the stock one really sucks
If you buy it for 400$ you got ripped but if you get it on AVI its a steal. Great gun for its class, worth 150-200$. I gave it a 9 because of the accuracy with a cheaper barrel and the deep velocity. (I know I can't spell rechargeable)

JT Protium w/ Egg w/ Z Board, PMI pure energy nitro tank, 14 inch Whisper Barrel
barrel, electric hopper that feeds at least 20 bps
Fast, cheap, looks nice, doesn't chop, reliable
Batteryhog, no upgrades
I bought this gun in a package of Action Village for 250$. The first time i saw it i was like, this looks nice. Then a few days later i take it 2 an indoor speedball place and it was keeping up with the high end guns. It doesn't chop at all i maybe had 2 ball breaks in one case of paint, and it was air efficient. If you have 250 bucks and you wanna compete with the best guns, you should really consider this gun.
