It is anodized by ACI. It has all the
standard features of the F4
plus a pressure gauge and
High Volume Cell. The GS
includes our Zero Gravity
Combo Barrel and Sub Zero 4
Stage Expansion Chamber
with matching finish.
The ACI F4 Illustrator GS is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
This is a pretty good gun. I love the stock barrel and exp chamber, no need to upgrade there. I also like the splash job that comes on it. I also like the internal cocking system, better than a spyder or tippman to me and i like that it can be field stripped w/out any tools.
There are a couple things I didn't like about the GS. The powerfeed gave my trouble for one thing. It just stopped turning after about a month, it was ok cause i just replaced it with a spyder one and it worked fine from then on, but still a concern for other people with only one gun. Next, i thought the trigger pull was a little heavy. If you plan on getting a venturi bolt for this gun a good thing to know about it is that it spins the ball the opposite way that the porting goes on the stock barrel. This is kind of a shame becasue the zero gravity is a great stock barrel and any other barrel wont look as good because of the paintjob, but oh well. I also thought that the kickback on it was a little too much, but had a pretty good feel to it.
I ended up selling this gun to my friend who liked it and I got a mag. I also owned a spyder shutter and I actually chopped more balls with the GS. I think it is a good gun for the price and F4s are pretty durable. I was running the GS on nitro and it was pretty accurate. I would reccomend a regulator, specifically a palmer reg,(palmer-pursuit.com) those things are the best when it comes to c02 and runs great on nitro. I think a revo would be a good upgrade for a GS, and then maybe a reg. I would say barrel in most cases but the stock is pretty good. Overall a good gun-8

i think that this gun is great for the money it shoots pretty straight out of the box a great feel and a 14 inch barrel i haven't broken a ball yet. U just need tobreak it in and it will shoot where u poit just about
theres not much but it seemed to loose the pressure if you really shoot fast for a while but i don't waste balls i shooot to kill. this is the best of them. amazing for snap shooting!!!!!!! and balances well to with a 20 ounce and a 12 volt
This is a great gun but U need to break it in the first day i shot mine i thought this is not worth the money second day i go out and shoot amazing U just need to break it in a few simple modifications, i took off the HVC and put on a vigellanti regulater with low pressure spring not a problem with the pressure dropping now it almost will shoot with my mag a 68 classic power feed mag matter a fact i am selling my mag for some more upgrades for my GS GREAT GUN!!!!!!!
This gun is a awsome gun! It works great on C02 or nitrogen! It has a awsome xpansion chamber with a low pressure chamber included! It comes with a good looking splash job and a good stock barrel. The barrel is 14' long! This gun is a great gun for advanced or novice players. It also comes with a powerfeed and has a ball rate of up to 8 shots a second!
This product has a single trigger. Its trigger is very comfortable though!
This is a great gun and it performes awsome stock! Upgrades can be added but the are not needed. Its price ranges from $275 to $350! Its a great gun! I would recomed this gun over any other gun in its price range!
This gun is great, I really enjoyed everything about the gun including the nive graffiti job on it. The barrel that comes with it is great and i don't really see a need for a new one for a long time. The gun is very accurate and once the springs are worn in it shoots even better. Also i liked how the gun is easily taken apart to clean so theres no need for allen wrenches unless you want to work on the expansion chamber.
I thought this was a great gun for the novice player to become intermediate.All i can suggest is later on buy the venturi bolt and a regulater on the gun and you should be able to play with the gun no matter who you go up against.I would highly suggest this gun.
EVERYTHING!!! This gun rocks. I played in freezing cold weather and had no breaks. My friends tippman broke the balls like I had never seen before. I was able to out perform his gun. The zero gravity barrelis a good barrel for waremer weather but in the colder weather your gonna need a different bore size. The expansion chamber works great I stay within 2 to 3 fps each shot.
Nothing as of right now. The gun works and looks awesome.
This gun is a great gun. The spyders and tippmans come nowhere close to the performance of this gun. It is easily field stripped and put back together. If you have the money get this gun!!!
Let's See... Everything. It looks great and performs well. I have not had any trouble with it. It out performed my friends guns. The grip is awesome and feels great. I have a different barrels but the zero-gravity barrel was better than any stock.
not much besides the fact that the trigger shoe fell off but that was easily remided.
IT's a good gun for the price. It doesn't have many upgrades but who ever said it needed them was wrong. I love this gun. A few self mods and it is shweet!!!!!!! Get this gun over the tippman or the spyder. I give it a TEN!
