I have owned this marker for about a year and a half now, and I have a love hate relationship with it.
I got it for 320, and put a Tippmann X7 LP Hopper on it, then a Pinokio X7 Hopper on it. It does great for lugging around, especially when its dirty or muddy out. It's a nice heavy polymer plastic feel, so it doesn't feel likes its going to break soon. The RIP CLIP System is awesome, basically its got HALO B guts, and works on sound activation. Never had an issue with the Rip Clip (except when the little plastic piece on the top of the marker slid back afterI took it off, and I thought it was mis feeding. More of a Herp a Derp moment then anything lol). The APEX barrel is a nice touch, good for the aesthetic feel of the marker and its a fun toy to have and throw in. Super nice and crisp trigger, and you can set the bounce and different modes.
Now for the bad parts. This thing will eat batteries like a zombie eats brains. It devours them. Same thing with Air. I have learned to keep spare 9V's on me at all times when I bring this out to loan to friends. I also give them my 70/45 HPA tank with a hose, cause I know anything smaller and they are gonna be running in and out every 3-4 games to refill. Also, the clamshell design is a ***** to do a full cleaning on, so I recommend field stripping it and taking it all the way apart only when you REALLY have to. Also, the modes are pain in the *** to set, there is no way to do it externally, you have to open up the grip and flip the toggles on the board itself. Super pain in the ***...

Stock ROF for some people, limited appereance upgrades.
Ive had this marker for 4 months now, i play with it every sunday since i got it. I bought it on ebay and the package included the marker,20oz CO2 tank, remote line, mask, low profile hopper, squeeye, 4 pods and harness and a big gym-like carrying bag. The marker is 319 directly from BT. So 370 is a good price for all the stuff it comes with. I live in Honduras btw.
The rip clip is just great, gentle on paint, and reliable. I only had an issue when it stopped working prior to a game. I got no low battery light so i thought i had another problem. I changed the batteries anyway and it worked normally. It is NOT a battery hog, nor the ripclip(4x AA), nor the egrip(1x 9v). In 4 months ive only changed the rip clip batteries once, i still havent changed the egrip 9v battery. I only run CO2, so i get to shot 800+ shots per tank fill.
I've been using the stock barrel, i intend to buy a flasc barrel. The stock barrel is a small bore barrel. Compared to other barrels i've seen in my friends' markers.
The double trigger on the egrips is really usefull, whether you play with semi, ramp or auto mode. 13 bps out of the box works fine for me so far, but if you need more, you can get the APE Rampage board for like $80. This will make you able to take advantage of the full throttle of the rip clip (20 bps).
It is A5/X7 threaded, so it has a wide selection on barrels. The appereance upgrades are limited, you can add sights, lasers and tactical lights if you manage to find the right mounts for it.
Changing the look to a more M4/M16-like riffle can be pricey too. I think that for the price and the upgrades that come included with it, it is a perfect competitor for the X7. Very accurate, fast and the greatest MP5 look.
