Sheridan DXE with stock accessories
None, get a new gun before you upgrade. This is a good gun to start with not go on the pro tour with.
It's a powerful gun for the price you pay. Awesome gun for a newbie because you can really play with it and compete without spending your nest egg.
Not much, doesn't have the best distance but very solid at close to moderate range. It is kinda simple looking but that's nothing major.
Very solid for the price, I loved it while I was getting started. Good gun to start with and learn how to play. I would recomend it to anyone who was interisted in paintball on a limited spending limit.
-short trigger pull
-shoots rops of paint with a after market barrel,w/ out breakage
-not a lot of guns out there like it,its nice to have somthing differnt other than a tippman or spider
-got to admit it just looks cool too
-a little on the loud side,can be fixed w/ a ported barrel though
- the red and silver color is a died give away if u play woods ball
-dosnt com with a fore grip
this is a great gun i recomind it to any begginer or intermideat player
i have the 12 vl berral and i dont break hardly any paint buy this gun and u wont be disapointed.
As for all guns, a new barrel
The J&J ceramic would be an excellent choice, made the already quite gun silent, very accurate and slick barrel which shoots through breaks
Paid $80 for it, well worth $200
Fairly accurate with stock barrel
Extremely accurate with J&J ceramic
Easy no tool disasembly
Easy to clean
easy to cock
comfortable easy trigger pull
really cool red splash anodizing
Great quality low end marker
Accepts spyder barrels
smooth inline opperation
never had a problem with o-rings
Really quite shooting paintballs
Load as hell dry firing
Tends to chop paint from time to time over extended rapid fire
Darn manufactures failed to include a 7/8" hopper elbow for it
Hard handle panels
Stock barrel sucks, as on most other markers
No very upgradable
It's a shiby marker. I've never had problems with it. I like how easy it is to disassemble and clean. I'd recomend it to anyone looking for a new gun or just getting started with paintball. I'd recomend getting a new barrel for it.
I just started playing paintball a few weeks ago and ive had no real problems with this gun. Its great for a beginners gun because of the cheap price and has good durability.
Had no problems with tearing o rings yet
The stock barrel really sucks and should be replaced as soon as you buy the gun.
Ive had balls break in the barrel when i start rapid firing but i think that can be fixed if you buy a new Spyder barrel.
MIne came with an expansion chamber so it fires fairly well.
balls sometimes curve but i think this can be fixed with a new barrel.
Its a great gun except for the stock barrel also needs an expansion chamber other than that its great.
Basic XTS with Sheridan's add-on expansion chamber
a better barrel
a regulated gas supply
There is something about the "in-line" design of the Tippmanns and the Sheridan XTS' that I find more aesthetically pleasing than the "stacked tube" design. The ease of maintenance afforded by the tilt-up receiver and the elegantly simple design makes the Sheridan XTS easy for the mechanically challenged paintball warrior to maintain.
1. This piece of crap breaks more balls than a newbie's backside.
2. There are very few upgrades available.
3. The factory upgrades from Sheridan are more expensive and not as effective as aftermarket equivalents.
The breaking paint is what burns my cookies the most. Even with the factory expansion chamber, if the temperature drops below 60 degrees I get snowflakes out of the barrel which makes me wonder if what I got for my $60 was a gas thru handle cleverly disguised as an expansion chamber. I bought a Lapco barrel and have tried "tougher" paintballs all to no avail. I'm going to hook my XTS up to a friends chronograph and HPA system to see if pressure spikes caused by liquid CO2 is the problem. In the meantime, I highly recommend that everyone else should get a Tippmann.
-shoots all over the place
-elbows are fairly difficult to find
-upgrades are for me Very hard to find
-ball breaks are very common (Like every 25 balls--even if I use expensive high end paint)
-needs foregrip to shoot anywhere near your opponent
-w/o expansion chamber shoots too much snow
-velocity adjustments are inaccurate
-stock barrel is too short for any kind of long distance shot
-cheesy plastic side plate(for cleaning and upgrading)
-ball lock falls out easy
-bottom line strips easy
Cheap, easy to disassemble. But, for anyone who wants a lower end semi don't get this one I bought one from Wal-mart and it let me down ether buy a tippmann or a spyder (around same price)
-brakes paint ball
-to many problems
-shoot more than one at a time
I suggest getting a different gun, I had alot of problems with this gun then I got a Tippmann 98 Custom and this gun is like 50 times better then the Sheriden XTS. Conclusion: Spend a xtra 30$ and get a better gun
