Appearance: The Quadra gets four stars here because it is a cool looking gun (silver with black accents). It does not get five stars because that is your only color choice.
Performance: The stock gun right out of the case is extremely inaccurate, upgrading the barrel is a MUST. The stock trigger is terrible as well and is very hard to walk unless you have smaller hands. In order to get most hoppers in the feedneck the first time you will be required to sand them down. Other then that (yes i know ALL of that) the gun is half-way descent, for gun released in 2004 its not super heavy but it should be noted that it is way heavier then the newer guns out on the market today and even most of the 2006 guns (such as 06 ego's and dm's). It shoots fairly quick and with a upgraded barrel can be very accurate. The stock board has two modes (live eye on and live eye off). The eyes are a big plus in my mind, especially for it being a older gun.
Reliability: After a few cases through the gun I had my LCD screen go out (known problem with these guns). Unfortunately this is right when JT basically went out of business so I could not contact them to get the problem fixed. Even with the screen out the gun still shoots and functions perfectly fine however. You just lose access to your shot counter. My friend experienced the same dilemma with his JT Protium (which is JT's model below the Quadra). If you shoot the gun too fast in the cold the plastic bolt also runs the risk of cracking (again my friend experienced this, I was lucky and didn't shoot very much outside in the winter).
Value: You are better off spending $30 and getting the JT Tetra (this is the low end make of the Quadra). The guns are exactly the same except the Tetra does not have eyes and the board on the Tetra does not go out after a few cases.
With all this said for an OG gun the Quadra is not terrible but compared to today's standards it is. I would recommend avoiding spending too much money for one of these and going with the cheaper Tetra (if you must buy JT).
