JT Excellerator 4.0
20 Oz Gas
None really. A longer barrel and an electric hopper would help but Its not needed.
Accurate as Hell!
Uses batteries even when not switched on
This gun is legendary!
I bought this gun second hand and have never looked back. I have only played with this gun because there is no way I want to give it up.
It out preforms all my mates guns (including a Tippmann A-5 Tactical) and matched up to a Spyder MR2!
The only main fault was the fact that it uses batteries even when not switched on which means you have to unplug it a lot which requires taking off the cover on the handle with a screwdriver, not very helpful when in the field.
mostly spyders, i wanted to try an older gun that was recommended to me by a buddy
JT excellerator marker with tru flight 16 inch chrome sniper barrel (monster barrel), max velocity spring, 20 oz co2, and electro hopper
none, barrel is great, and internals and trustworthy
Shoots hard, very loud, intimdating, saves air pretty well, reliable, doesn't chop, looks cool
Sometimes leaks air, since they are older the valve might get rusted and so on
Great gun, overall great buy, it's good to get this gun back into play, shoots really hard, and doesn't chop, looks intense, very loud and intimdating, the guy i took this gun to to fix said it was one of the loudest guns he'd ever heard, saves air great with the regulator, yeah so buy this gun and get it back into actio, i have and you should too
If you're looking for a great semi gun get this and you'll be satisfied, shoots hard and is intimdating, just get a chrome 16 inch barrel and you'll be scaring everyone on the field
Nothing i hae used is too similar, it is rather unique.
First gun, was all stock except for barrel, 14' barrel.
Nothing really, always a new barrel, large enough tank, barrel if you want.
Great buy, great accuracy out of box, works with little maintance.
Trigger does not allow for a high rate of fire. Heavy metal body
Great buy for the money. Wether you want this for a back up or if you are new to the game. Not good for speed ball, upgrade trigger would be great but not easy to find for this brand. Bu a barrel if you choose to but not essential. Buy if you can find, but it is retired. Bring it back JT!
Excellerator 3.0 stock/ standard hopper/ usually 12 oz. co2 container
e-hopper or HPA
Reliable, accurate stock, easy maintenance, air pressure gauge (regulator?)
Pull pin ring
Of the bat, the ring that holds the pin in place is annoying. If you cock the bolt back, it can get in the way and just antagonize you. I just replaced that with one that i had from a tac 5 parts kit. Also, compared to the 3.0, its heavier because of its extension for the air pressure gauge. It's supposed to be a regulator, but it doesn't work very well.
The gun itself is rather accurate, even for me using a pre-owned gun. I bought a new bolt for it thats delrin, and it works okay in place of the old metal one, however it's not a needed upgrade. Might as well get a spyder acs bolt if you want a better anti-chop upgrade.
As far as upgrading goes, I would reccomend an e-hopper so you wont misfire or chop, because the gun can be as quick as your fingers, and probably HPA. Although, CO2 runs very well on the marker. Jt hasnt disapointed me with their stock barrels and bolts, so if you must, then thats personal preference.
One thing that does dissapoint me, is the lack of other upgrades without spending some money to permanently adjust your gun. i wanted an e-grip frame, and all spyder frames fit, but because the hammer bore is bigger than spyders, the frame wont fire. It will fit however but unless you cut the stock hammer a bit, the trigger wont work.
Great beginer gun and easy to maintain as long as you keep it oiled. I'll give it a good rating score because it truley is a reliable gun, and fun to use in any style paintball match.

Its fast with out a elecxtric trigger but not fast enough feed system.
Not fast enough feed system.
Its a good gun but if your using cheap balls gonna be cleaning it lots, it needs a electric feeder for people that got a trigger finger balls so brake real easy after 1 broke and you dont clean it, other than that its a good gun real accurate good on saving presure.
Id give it a 9/10 because it needs a faster feed ststem to keep up
16 oz. tank , progessive barrel , electric handle , PMI hopper , and the marker
-A new barrel Progressive works well
-A electic hopper
-You have to change the batteries for the handle alot
-It sometimes chops cheap paint
I was using this gun before i bought my new gun. My buddy was bragging about this gun so i had to try it out. Well this gun never let me down. It impressed me with its high rate of fire and unbelieveable accuracy.( I shot a coke can from 45 yards away first shot) On top of all this its easy on c02 and not that expensive. This gun is good for players of all skill levels and requires very little upgrades. GO GET THIS GUN...NOW!
Really great gun go buy this gun before they raise the price of it!

Tippman 98 sniper, Tippman A5, and my friend's spyder
Black mini e class orracle
Freak kit(with junior freak back)
(2)68 4500 Crossfires
Empire cradle (chrome)
Clamping feed neck(not sure what company)
DM4(red/black dust fade)
Barrel, and mabey an electric hopper (revvy 9v)
Good Begginer gun, has decent looks for a gun.
Found that bolt pin could fly out easily(had to order new one)
Ok, this was my first gun, and just noticed that i haven't wrote a review on it, when i first got this gun, i loved it! i would walk around the house with it, look at it, wipe any dust off of it when ever i had the chance, i loved it, then when i finaly got to gas it up, i loved it, it shot pretty accuratly, i could hit a back board of a basket ball goal from about 60 feet easy with a stock barrel. I think that this is a really good gun if you want a good starter gun, this is the way to go, not BE. I think that BE only makes gun's just so they can stay on the market, JT however actualy makes their guns because they know how to make them, and want them to perform.
I think that this gun should be considered for any one wanting to get their kid a first paintball gun.
JT Excellerator 4.0 with a
32 degrees Night Stick Barrel and
Richochet 2k hopper
don't have to spend to much in upgrades
sometimes has air leaks
long trigger pull
This is a great gun especially for the price if you buy one of ebay or somewhere besides stores that sell them for $200 to $250 dollars. I got mine off of ebay for $73 dollars including shipping and handling, and it came with a Night Stick Barrel, 20 oz tank, mask, and hopper. 4.0's have good range and are very accurate. I have broken only one ball out of 2,000 rounds and that was because I accidentily fed 2 balls in the chamber at once. Even though they have a long trigger pull you can still get 8 to 9 balls a second out of these guns that is the reason you need an electronic hopper like i did because you can out shoot a gravity feed hopper. Sometimes these guns have air leaks but they are cheap to fix only like $5. Also the bolt will stick sometimes but just oil it up with with paintball gun oil. Although I would just get a new bolt for it so it will shoot farther, harder, and faster.
Overall this is a great gun I would recomend it to beginners and advanced paintballers.
SP smart grips
15 degree vert max flo
crossfire 45/4500 nitro
comfy to hold
not much kick
This isn't bad. If you get a new barrel you'll dominate with this baby. it has a comfy grip and not much kick. The only thing i didn't like about this was that it was a little loud. other than that this was great!!!
the used is
the used is the
the used is the best
the used is the best band
the used is the best band EVER!!!
If you look hard enough, you can find one for like 120 dollars or something around there. If you can get one that cheap, it's worth it.

I run a spyder sonix... 32 degree carbon fiber barrle or a dye boom stick or a prolite 16in ... sutter bolt... 2k3 rict. hopper... Phsco balistic Drop... electronic trigger frame... ESP stricker bolt... and a new regulator... and n2....
none... dont buy it...
slick... iight looks....
Leaks gas all the time... uncomfortable feel...
ive run all sorts of guns... this is buy far the most uncomforuable gun ive ever played with... but this is really bad... i strongly dislike it... i would probably use a pump in a torney over this gun... i hate it... it has so many more problems then most guns ive had... but for sum people they might find it comforuable...
i wouldnt get it... but its all about the feel... i would suggest rying it before you buy it...
