I absolutely love this marker. It shoots any paint you can throw in it, really easy to strip and clean, and very soft and quiet for a poppet style marker (though has an element of spool too).

Get a new barrel, .693 is about useless. Get a new lower profile clamping feedneck. A delrin bolt (Boss Bolt v2 imo) is a good investment. If you change the feedneck, be aware that you will likely have to throw the old one out because it's so tight there's not alot of good ways to get it out (I suggest a 3/4" internal pipe nipple wrench and someone to help you hold the marker tight to a flat surface wrapped in a towel).

The only problem I've had is the asa coming loose after several hours of play, but that's what loctite is for. Same with the detent covers.

Stock barrel sucks, and the gun its not right for everyone.

Consider it the corolla of paintball guns, Everybody has one.

NO SERIOUSLY, EVERY DAMN TRADE THREAD SOMEBODY OFFERS ONE.

Pros:
This is a very reliable maker with a great trigger, very balanced, and at a price point you can not beat.

Cons:
The looks are not pretty unless you get a team gun. The stock barrel has a lot to be desired but will shoot a paintball.

Recommeded upgrades:
-Boss bolt kit. Its amazing how different the marker shoots.
-Barrel, i use a furious and love it.
-Upgraded board, just so much easier to program a board that has a screen.

Empire Axe It does the job of most guns. I feel that for some learning how to program the gun could be a challenge. It's also small in the hands, the grip extender comes in very handy.
