I have been playing with the Rail for past 4 months. So far, I have kept it stock settings on it and have been ripping right out of the box. I am amazingly impressed with the quality of the gun and the ability in how it performs. I have played with it and able to perform on same level with guns that are 2-3x the price. I have gone through several cases of different brands of paint, Valken Infinity, Proto Advantage, GI Sports 2 star, Dye CG paintballs and so far i have only chopped 2 balls out of the 7+ cases I have shot down range.

I really love how Dye went all out on this gun with Hyper3 Regulator and even the color coded O-rings for different sizes in the gun. And comes with all the allen wrenches you will need for proper maintenance of your marker.

If you are looking for a mid price ranged gun that performs with high end performance markers, I highly suggest shelling out the extra few dollars and picking up this gun and go out there and shoot some lanes and have some fun.

The gun was broken from day one. I have sent it twice now, the company never returns phone calls and has nothing but excuses. We have heard lie upon lie from the company. We have wasted most of our summer trying to get the gun fixed even tho the manager admitted that the gun was defective they still will not replace it. I have never been so dissatisfied with a company in my life!!!

Cons: Opening grips to change board settings
Just got mine shipped to me a week ago and just used it in a tourney. This. Gun. RIPS. I love it. To me the gun is a DM12 that's about $700 cheaper. I'll get heat for that, but so be it. I love the reach trigger compared to the other triggers that come on other proto's. The eye pipe is REALLY nice. The ASA is a bit stiff at first, but after a couple turns it breaks itself in. My reg didn't take long to break in. After about 1,000 shots I was shooting 285-290 consistently. The only con is opening the grips to change the settings, but I can deal with it. Had to put it because it's really the only con I have with it. All in all I love this gun very much and think it is well worth the $500 I spent on it.

Cons: Efficiency, ASA is slightly annoying
I have used my Reflex Rail for about three months now and absolutely love it! It's probly the quietest marker in the price range and the smoothest shooting. The trigger is great and the gun overall feels good in your hands. The gun also has a pretty nice feedneck and nice stock barrel (can use a UL back with the stock front). The only problem is the efficiency isn't the greatest and the on/off switch is kind of finnicky. Overall great gun for the price, highly recommended.

Pros: PGA dyecam, mid price gun
Cons: Efficiency, bad battery life
I purchase brand new PGA dyecam last year from ansgear.com, played 3 months then ordered the billy wing bolt also from ansgear. Thinking it will improved the air efficiency, but was mistaken, did not have much difference at all.

On the other side, performance after the upgrade did improve. Gun shoots way better.
The downside to this gun for me is the trigger guard that feel sharp on the finger gripping the grip.
And never leave battery in this gun, it will drain, I think within a month time.

Beginning of this year I ordered the 7th element board from ansgear, but the board did not fit perfectly, so the power button and the eye button feel loose, required to be pressed deeper than the original board.

Note: I just found out that a months later the 7the element company has closed, I do think ansgear shouldn't sold me the board knowing the company no longer open. Now I m stuck with the board and no customer support in case of problem.

Back to the Gun. Love it.

This gun is great it shoots ropes, its very smooth, almost no kick at all.
It takes about two cases to breake in, once you do that it shoots ropes!, if you play woodsball you can set it up to autofire and 33 bps (you will probably get a limitation of 25bps because of loaders cap), overall its an excelent gun and i think it should be at least 600 u$d since it has same bolt, same asa, same ul frame, and same trigger as high end dye markers wich are 1250 u$d. Just excelent.


(Sorry about my english)
