Easy to maintian
Comes with some upgrades
A little heavy
needed a new spring kit(my fault)
I played a day of speedball with this gun which i got for christmas, and i am very satisfied. it shoots fast enough for a newer player, and walking the trigger is very easy. A lot of people say it chops balls, mine hasnt chopped one. i put about 600 rounds through it. (Paint was zap primer, not high quality) Afterwards, i tested it outside in 5 degreee weather(celcuis) and no balls chopped. the accuracy is decent for a stock barrel. a smart parts progressive would be a nice upgrade i love how easy it is to clean and maintian. I was worried since this is my first gun but i can field strip and clean it easily.
update: if you are having velocity problems with the gun, it needs a new spring kit. i was having a bit of problems then i lost the spring(my fault) its shot out wen i was cleaning it a field right into a garbage can. i got 10 bucks worth of parts for it and now it shoots fine.
Awesome gun for beginners and intermidiates. You wont regret buying it and i recomend it to everyone except tourny players

I love this gun and wouldnt trade it for the world. If i could though i would get a protium cause they are awesome and fantastic. This gun hasnt faileed me yet and its been working wonders. But on the field I prefer my spyder Avant e99. its just o so more consistent.
ive had this gun for a while and it seems to be a very good gun..on occasion it chops balls but it never really happens once u get a good electric hopper. Very good accuracy..It is a very reliable gun, i have never had it break on me once.
Get a hopper and probably a barrel and u will be great with this gun.
This is a great gun. Many people that this is bad. Well they are just wrong and nobbish and want to put Jt down. This is a very nice looking gun with great features. But here is a down side. When ever i go to paintball i wind up say '"im out" because i poped a ball. There is alot of blow back which breaks the balls. Just get a new bolt and a new hopper and your good.
My conclusion is that this gun is very good. :) i have to give this gun a 9 because of the ball breakage
stock with some trigger mods and a aftermarket barrel, hpa propellant, empire loader , graphite painted bolt, polished internals.
Do a trigger job on it ,I have mine set at about a millameter and a half pull, a good power hopper, HPA, a new bolt would help I am sure ,but alas I don't have the cash for that ,,,yet
Bought mine on ebay,,,cheap cheap and did i say cheap
Very unreliable ,
Out of the box, its all metal marker body and trigger frame is nice to look at, a little heavy but I can deal with that, feels good in the hand , I have the black model so its not as flashy as the gold ,good for bush ball,
the trigger is easy to fine tune if you have done it before, the side slop is easy to fix with a plastic washer made out of a milk jug, as is the sear side slop,,
the electronics are a bit of a problem if your rate of fire is fast, the trigger will skip a beat or two, i presume the capacitor does not charge fast enough fo high rate finger work. , there are no progamable fire modes which does not bother me ,but the on button is a bit of a pain as you need a finger nail or pen to push the button, and the one led does not function as far as i know ( does any one know what that led is for, the middle one )
This is my update on this gun!!!!!!!
Well I have done extensive testing on my gun and one other and have nothing but trouble sometimes it shoots and sometimes it won't for no apperent reason,,, do not buy this gun for any reason please you will only get frustrated and end up sitting on the sidelines or borowing another gun,,,,My VL triad is a better gun for reliability.

JT excellerator 3.5E
2 piece JJ 12" barrel
12 oz co2
Power feed hopper
Doesnt eat a lot of paint
Only 8 shots a second
I highly suggest this gun for a begginer or for a friend thats too cheap to buy his own gun. i suggest upgrading the barrel and getting a power feed hopper. it doesnt need a very fast hopper though becuz it only shoots 8 a second.
buy it, its great
stock excellerator with reloader II, smart parts 16 in. progressive barrel
your money back.
R.O.F. easy to use, sort of light.
Some adjusting in the beggining, this thing will chop any thing in sight.
Please do not get this gun. Ohh jesus my gun pulled a fricken 9/11 on me. I was using it today when there were so many problems i could play for the intire day. Apparently my bolt is hitting an invisable object and is cause chops on every other shot. It shoots fine and then the bolt goes ahab and goes everywhere. Im not going to be able to play for like the next two maybe three weeks. Theres no point of me fixing it cuase its probably going to cost me more then the gun itself.
Save your self the time and wait until you get enough money for a decent. I would rather throw paints balls then to use this.

Stock, straight out the box: e-grip, double trigger, Vertical Feed, x-chamber, small drop forward, running on CO2.
Price. Its selling for around $50 right now.
Without an electic hopper it will chop under hi rate of fire.
I have put around 8000 shots through it and under normal woodball play it has never chopped. In speedball it chops without the electic hopper. The stock barrel isn't to bad either, good grouping, not much distance though. I swapped in a SP 14" teardrop(takes spider threads) and that helped out. It is only semi-auto even though it is electic, I didn't know it till I got it. It would have been nice to have 3-round and full auto modes.
This makes an great beginer gun or as a backup.
Great value, hard to find a better gun for the price. Got a whole gun for less than I paid for the x-chamber on my other gun.
This is such a good deal I bought 3 more for when I have friends out who don't have their own guns.

Sold speedball gun at the momment
Tippman 89 custom
Halo Odessy LCD TSA
Motorized hopper at least 12 BPS minimal
New barrel, most deffinately
Heres the most helpful upgrade... save your money.
High majority of its body is metal
Breaks down when you need it the most
This marker has been a thorn in my side ever since the day it was purchased. I should have used basic common sense and checked here to see what everyone said about it. I am quite befuddled that JT USA released such an unreliable marker. It's one of those thoughts that make you go "huh...what gives?!". This marker WILL break down when you need it the most. I had a Halo Oddessy LCD TSA egg in there feeding it at least 17 bps; Speedball last night, within 45 seconds of the game, fired off a few rounds and a unsurprisingly thing happend. It broke down. The gun would not recock. I'm tired of this marker, thats all it ever does is break down, after calling myself out due to a marker malfunction I checked the barrel. It looked like something from an autopsy. This wasn't a barrel, this was now a fully functional metal paintbrush. >:( There where around 6+ chopped balls stuck in the barrel, some cracked open and a few whole ones stuck in. It chops more paint than a sushi chef chops fish. And it wasn't the paint, I was using Draxxus Blaze. The barrel is crap, the aim is crap. The slack on the trigger is terrible. What do you want me to say? it constantly breaks down, something goes wrong, the o-rings get chopped even though I'm using the highest quality o-ring out there. This marker is completly unreliable and I woundn't give it as a gift to my worst enemy.
Heres my recommendation... DO NOT BUY THIS MARKER!!
Save your money please! Buy a spyder rodeo or save your money for a reliable high end marker. This is the best advice I could ever give anyone. I'm giving it a 2 just because it has a solid metal frame.

Easy Field Cleaning
Unresponsive Trigger and high Rate of fire
Dependant on Rev Hopper
I have run with a Mag for years and finally decided to by this gun. I did not want to spend too much money and pretty much just randomly picked this gun off a wall. I did not realize that this gun would out perform my mag in:
The day I got this gun, I pulled it out of the box and just ran out and started playing games. I did not even read the manual. It shot great! I could not be more pleased with its accuracy and consistancy. I loved its range and rate of fire. Then when I did chop a ball, field cleaning was so easy! Pull one bolt out and Viola, the barrel and chamber completely exposed. My game definitely got better. I love my mag, but it is a maintenance nightmare. I think I must have chopped a thousand balls while I've had it, and eash time I had to spend 10 min cleaning it out. I'm so impressed, I might take a look at JT's new line of guns.
You need a gun to run with soon? GET THIS GUN. Its so cheap, you won't even feel it. You will destroy open field rentals. I'm not sure about tournament's, but if you just play on weekends, this is the gun.
I love it's strengths. My game definitely got better. It does have a few bugs in it but for the price I would have expected alot more to go wrong. The mag has all of the weaknesses but is 4 times the price. So I give it a 9 for price and the few weaknesses it has.
