well i used this gun at a coarse so i guess i wouldnt know the condition of the gun, but it seemed to have a problem with the co2 so the guy simpily changed it then it basically worked fine. It is pretty inaccurate but what do you expect it was stock. im not sure how dependable it really is but it seemed pretty old and it still worked good.
I guess its a good begginer gun and all, i would definatly replace the barrel and definatly get an expantion chamber if i were to buy it. Not for people who just wanna blow off there money so they can get a gun. Save your money
Model has a drop forward
3A 14" ported barrell
50ci HPA Bottle
The gun is light weight
Tends not to chop balls
9.5" stock barrell is awfull
needs a better bolt, OEM is too turbulent
I have only been out a few times with this gun but so far it has not let me down. I have put about 1000 balls through it and none broke. With the original barrell it had a really bad right hook on the balls after 30ft. Longer barrell corrected most of it but the only thing I can think of to fully correct the curveballs is a better bolt, which I cannot find anywhere for this gun.
The gun is what it is for the price. However, with a few minor mods it's pretty comparible to some of the better (mech) Spyders or the 98c's.
14" rifled barrel, That's about all I added to this gun
New Barrel Definitely, Not worth enough to add that much more.
Requires Little Maintenance
Long Trigger Pull
Terrible Stock Barrel
This was the second marker I ever bought and I am very glad I did. The first marker I owned was a Brass Eagle Talon. Needless to say, the improvement between my first marker and this one was amazing. One of the things that drew me to this marker was the fact that it was metal and not a Brass Eagle or Viewloader. When I first got it out of the box and started to shoot, the gun was doing a few incomplete shots every time I pulled the trigger, but a little bit of oil solved this problem easily. Since then, I bought a 14" rifled barrel and I am very glad I did so because the stock barrel chopped balls, was very loud and horribly inaccurate. Once I put the new barrel on however, the gun improved vastly. It is very accurate and pretty quiet too.
I highly reccomend this product. It is a great beginner gun. I give it a 9/10 IN IT'S CLASS. That means compared to guns within the same price range. I hate people that rate guns like this to guns like the Shocker or Ion(which is the gun I now use). Anyway, great gun, good job PMI.
umm none at the moment. but i have heard a new barrel will make it even more accurate(hard to belive this gun can get more accurate!!)
I am afriad i might dent it.
This gun is great for beginners but also for experienced players as well. very accurate, if this gun was out when i started i would have bought it. for $100 this gun is a steal! I would recommend it to my friends. Compared to my 98c this gun is very close in accuracy but the R6 is way more powerful at over 400fps nothing can stop you.
BUY IT! great gun never chops and is durable! great for woodsball this gun can take a beating from me...it sure as HELL can take one from you! great gun...

Shoots sometimes when your lucky
Get a new gun or mygunsucks.com or dude get anew gun alright for real this gun isent that good it breaks a lot, most of the parts need replacing after a few mins and most of all it doesnt work at all for a tourni. woods ball its ok it you get black but if you get the red or blue you stick out like a sore thumb my last piece of advise is this gun sucks and that is all.
VL Revolution 12v with the X board
12 and 16oz co2
umm lets see....................
a new marker perhaps!!!
well my friend has this cause hes to cheap to buy a new gun. so we went out to play and his gun was HORRIBLE! i mean it was ok but to keep up with an ion and protiums it was junk. so i was thinking is it really that bad so i asked if i could test it out. OMG did it suck! it couldnt shoot the broad side of the barn.
Only get this gun if ur just starting and be prepared to buy a new gun very soon afterward.
suppression barrel kit
1x30 weaver base red eyes scope
real action paintball tactical vest
dye 70/4500 throttle bottle
easy to upgrade
Loud as hell
ball detents (below)
this was the first marker i bought when i got to my home base of borden. It was cheap ($200 cad for the full starter package). I got the canadian tire special with the plastic pieces on the body. first thing i did was put a 14'' smart parts progressive on it, and this gun has served me well for the longest time.
when i was running this gun i was using co2, so i froze it a few times. the accuracy was decent at about 40 feet, but after that it was kind of a hope and pray, and it chopped once in a while, but the worst was when i got paint on the front of the bolt, and it started chopping every ball in the middle of the game. the other thing that i fopund was that a set of ball detents would only last a days play, and that got a little expensive.
on the other hand this is one of the simplest guns that i have ever used. the first time that i took it apart i didn;t even need the manual to do it, and cleaning was an absolute breeze.
my little brother is now loving this gun as much as i did as he begins his paintball experience.
All in all this is one of the best first markers for anybody. it's simple to use and easy to clean, and requires very little maitenence. and the price is great for somebody that isn't sure if they want to keep playing or not.
14''PMI RAZZOR BARREL
BLUE RHINO CO2 TANK
If you have enough money, get a new barrel , an expansion chamber, and a new drop forward
Shoots fairly straight with stock barrel
nice gun for speedball if you are a beginner
The sight on the gun is basically useless,but other than that it's fine
If you want a good starter gun or if you don't have enough for an expensive gun, this is the one you need. This gun is really good for the money. I just suggest you get a new barrel for it because the 8'' barrel that came with my gun isn't the best. my gun is better for speedball than woodsball because I have the red r6, but if you get the black r6 you can most likely play both.
Other than the sight rail being useless, this gun is really good. But like I said, get a new barrel and it will be one of the best starter guns you will have.

spyders tippmann's angels theyre all much better then this gun
spyder pilot acs with richotte hopper, sticky grips, pure energy psi tank, regulator and evil"the pipe" barrel system
To stop renting!!!!!!!!!!!
The trigger is alright
Oh boy where do i start, well when i first got into paintballing i would rent and these are our rental guns i've used these about 3 times well the gun chops like a maniac for one. I couldnt shoot a massive all if it were 10 feet away, the grips made my palms acually burn and blister. There is ONLY one good thing i can say about this is that the trigger is decent it is a fairly good trigger although i can't walk it it's preatty fast. Look our fields supposed to be getting new rentals i think 98's so that shows you there horrible just stop renting and buy a spyder or an ion or a tippmann or sumtin!!!!!!
I would NEVER buy this gun i can't really find too much to say about it look just buy a spyder or a gti with e force! I give it a 2.5 only cause of the trigger
Spyder imagine 04
12v revy with x board
customparts flame sypder drop
smartparts progressive barrel 14'
Pure Air Nitro
No fore grip
I used this when my ultra crappy Brass Eagle Eradicator was broken and i needed a gun to play so i borrowed one. It was an improvment over the retarded Brass Eagle but it still had its flaws. It was just as slow and loud. It also didn't have a fore grip like my old gun. They plastic rear bolt also scared me becuase someone could just snap it in half.
If you need a gun under 100 this is a better one although i think the Spyder Victor is better
