This thing is so sweet! Right out of box its already lubed unlike some of the higher priced guns. 2 mintues after I got it went out hooked up some C02 and shot 2000 paintballs. Absolutely no breaks and the paintballs I used were over 2 years old. I found them in my garage. Youd think because the barrel is only an 8incher it wouldnt shoot to great. Well wrong...this thing is soaccurate...it fly so straight and perfect for atleast 100 yrds. and then still only very minorly starts curving. It is not a gas hog either.
The only thing that I can find it needs is a trigger job. This one has quite along pull. Its not really a big deal though.
Definately get one of these guns. There wonderful. You can get them for $215.00 instead of usual retail of $300.00. Even if you got an angel or cocker this would be an execellent back up gun. Youll want ot shoot this more than any gun you have. Garunteed.

The gun is wonderful!!!, it rarely chops paint. The vertical feed is great, so you never need to buy an electric hopper!!! The 6 stage expansion chamber is awsome. The gun works as good on co2 as my friends mini-mag works on nitrogen. the barrel shoots well for a stock barrel. EXTREMELY ACCURATE!!
you might wanna put a new barrel on the gun. my 1 complaint is that the gun frame is not a 45. grip frame... i got a dye spyder 45. frame with a dye sticky grip and a longer and better drop forward.. besides that the gun is amazing!!
the gun is worth the money... it performs better than my friends spyder shutter and my other friends custom 98.. i have played paintball for 3 to 4 years.. and i have never wanted or needed 2 buy a gun over 300 dollars.. those guns are just a waste of money. i reccommend this gun 2 everyone that is looking for a great gun under 300 dollars. MUST BUY!!
This gun looks awesome. It feels really rugged and comfortable. Great on co2. barrel is great for stock. Got a lot of compliments on the gun.
Flow regulator was stuck almost closed right from the box. When I connect the co2, it takes about 1 minute to get to 900psi, 20 shots later no pressure. Sending it back for repair. Trigger pull is really long compared to my Tippmann Custom 98. Wouldn't shoot below 300fps.
Overall this is a great gun. The regulator problem is a problem which I am sure is rare, and the trigger pull can be fixed. I say it's worth the money. A little work on the velocity adjuster spring will fix the fps. I'd have given it a 10 if not for the regulator and velocity.

This gun is THE BEST you can get for the price you pay for it. Compared to a Spyder Shutter and Rebel Xtreme, this gun is far better. Havent chopped one ball through 1000 shots and have had no problems what so ever. The Metamorph Expansion chamber makes c02 last FOREVER. What can I say this gun is great.
Barrel isnt all that great but thats the only thing bad. Shoots extremly accurate however distance is an issue with it being only 8 inches.
In conclusion this gun is great for a beginer just strating out or the serious advanced player. Beyond your skill this gun is worth all the $230 I payed for it.If your debating between similiar guns such as the Shutter, no need to comapare buy the JT Excellerator. As for the barrel, spend an extra $60-$100 on a good barrel its worth it.
