I love this gun I've used it a few times. I just played today and it completely ripped. Its a great gun, good accuracy for an 11" barrel although i plan on getting a longer one. Didn't suck up air, shot great, very consistent. Came with lube, allen keys, barrel sock, i adjusted the trigger some and its still not perfect but tweaking it some more should help. I highly recommend this gun.

Similar Products Used:
08 Slg- Has many more gaps than the 09 in it's manufacturing that could have made it better.
08 Rail- This gun comes close but the new slg is more advanced, because it is newer.
pm7- Even though some might disagree, I personally believe the SLG is, pound for pound better than the Pm7.
Angel G7 Fly- The G7 Fly is a better gun than the 09 Slg, but it costs nearly 1100 dollars more.

This marker does require a few upgrades.
If you intend to use this marker for semi-auto play, you will need a new trigger. Also, this marker severely needs a new front bolt and barrel. An on/off switch along with a better feed neck is also disireable.
Speed, Ergonomics, Affordability.
Some poor engineering, Bad stock barrel and front bolt.
This marker is basically an electronpneumatic, fast shooting (stock is capped at 35+ bps!), solid gun for those who may not wish to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on a high end marker. This marker will out-perform all of the Low-end Smart Parts markers, All of the Spyder markers, the Dangerous Power G3, And the newer (06-09) Autococker Garbage. It comes with a solid body and grip, Pretty good board, but more can be desired. It is not paint picky, even with the stock barrel. The eyes are break beam, and work phenominally. The regulator is a Hyper 3 and if you think you will need another one, you are terribly mistaken. The only really bad thing about this marker is how fragile the PLASTIC front bolt turned out to be. it broke the first time i test fired it with paintballs.
I reccomend this marker to anyone who is looking to cut costs playing speedball, or ANY woodsball player, as I use this gun for woodsball and it is a dream to play with. 9/10 for some of the bad manufacturing and bare minimum extras.

well as a previous owner of the 08 model i can say they they are one step closer to perfecting this marker. I can honestly say I was still a bit disapointed that they didnt include a on/off or a 2 piece 14" proto barrel.
the marker shoots straighter and quieter than the previous model though. the new dye frame is a nice addition, but its plastic. but im sure your all wondering if this warrants a $100 dollar more price tag than the 08 model. my honest opinion "yes it does" both are great markers but this one is much better.
im severly disapointed in the plastic ul frame and the amount of slop in a ul trigger and with the exclusion of a on/off. if the marker didnt shoot so well i might of went with a pmr
Proto give the ppl a on/off and a 2 piece barrel for gods sake. A locking feedneck a on/off and a 2 piece barrel is pretty much the only thing ppl complained about with the 08 model. but the frame is oh so sweet. i gave the 08 a rating of a 9 because we needed to upgrade the gun. and again even though this is clearly better than the 08 model im still giving it a 9. still have to upgrade
9 out of 10
