Looks cool, works great.
I play primarily woods ball and wanted a tactical body for a more millsim look but also wanted a body I could mount an electronic point site to. Although this one comes with the ABS weaver rails attached to the sides with screws, I didn't need them and removed them. However, if someone needs a body with weaver rails then these look like they should work fine.
I mounted the point site to the top of the body by drilling and tapping machine screw holes through the aluminum. The fact that this body is made from aluminum is the main advantage for me and was my primary factor in buying it plus I got it from Ultimate Paintball on eBay for $39.95 plus $6.60 shipping.
One difference between this body and the stock body is you do have to remove the feed neck when removing the firing chamber and breech. It's not a big deal and it looks better (IMO) not having the slot cut out of it like on the stock body.
Also, the back of the body is open exposing the rear of the firing chamber. This hasn't caused any problems (dirt etc) and should facilitate a bolt out back mod. Also, there are two holes drilled through the bottom of the rear body and the owner of the local paintball field thought it might accommodate a shoulder stock. But I donâ€™t know what make/model that would be.
I've played with it several times and the body hasn't scratched so the paint appears to be pretty tough. It fastened to the stock grip without any problems (no alignment issues etc) so I give the fit and finish an A+.
There were no installation problems. It still looks great after several months of use. I've had no problems with it. Therefore buy it.
