I will edit this as I use this gun more, just got it this week in the mail.

Out of the box I noticed it was light. Also I noticed that the pump arm rubs against some parts causing noise during the stroke. looking down the barrel it looked like it could have been machined a little smoother.

I did was I always do with a new gun and stripped it down completely to check the lube situation. The gun came slightly lubes with some cheap oil, and a tiny dab of unidentifiable grease. Re-lubed with some better grease and threw the gun back together. Pretty straight forward to maintain this thing.

I wasn't impressed with the back-bottle configuration, so I built a line adapter with an on/off ASA and some macroline and fittings, and a reducer fitting (typically used for quick-connects on remote lines).

After building my bottom line adapter on it I got it gassed up and did some test firing with some Marballizers. I notice the velocity is WAY low out of the box. I will tune it more when I have access to a chrono. Nonetheless, the ball seemed to fly nice and straight. Once I throw my ifit on and test it in the field, this will probably a very solid, very accurate gun.

Again, I will update my review after I tune it and get it some field time.

Overall, it's simple, easy to maintain, easy operate. Only suggested upgrades are the barrel, and making a bottom line adapter to shoulder the gun more comfortably.

I was excited to get this pump. I wanted to try and get into pump play. The marker is fine but I had some difficulty putting it back together after taking I wanted to see how it functioned. The auto trigger is nice but is not practical during the game. The stock barrel is decent and the gun has little kick. The fact you need to remove the barrel to change velocity is a little silly and not very convenient. But for a cheap pump it isnt a bad choice.
