I bought my Reflex Rail used from a friend who had only played with it once. So basically it was new. From the moment I shot this gun i loved it. The way it feels in you hand is comfortable (at least compared to guns I've held before that and since).

Once the gun has been broken in, it shoots ropes. It was the first gun electronic gun that i've bought and owned. That being said i think it was a great first gun to own and use. For the price it is a great buy. Its a great option for a lower end tournament gun for someone that doesn't know how serious they are about the sport and doesn't want to spend $1000 on a high end.

The only thing negative i have to say about the Proto Reflex Rail is the efficiency. On a full fill of a 68/45 tank I got at most 5 pods + my hopper. With that being said, It wasn't a big deal because when I was using it I was playing mostly 3-man tournaments and never used more than 3 pods.

Overall, this is a very good gun, especially for the money. As long it is well maintained (lubed and cleaned) after each use, it will perform very well. Ill give it a 9/10 overall.

Pros: Pay the price of a Proto but shoots like a DM
Cons: BLENDER
The reason why I gave it three stars for performance and reliability is because out of the three time I used the marker, it didn't go well. The first problem was two weeks ago at an indoor field in New York and for some reason it was not reading the paint in the breech causing all three hoppers I tried to jam. I eventually shut my eyes off but of course I started chopping. Once paint got into the eye system it was all over. However I throughly cleaned the marker the next day and ran two hoppers through it outside in 30 degree weather with the same paint and it shot flawlessly. The next incident was this past weekend I played outside at a field in Connecticut and the marker transformed into a blender. Literally chopped every fourth or fifth ball and once the paint cakes the eyes you're done. HOWEVER, it was brutally cold out, only in the mid 30's and we were running xball points in about six inches of snow on top of a sheet of ice so the conditions weren't ideal but thats New England paintball for ya!

I am remaining optimistic about the marker because I have heard that PM/DM are troublesome in cold weather so I will find out if thats true or not when the weather starts warming up and the season gets underway. Don't let my rough start with this marker deter you from getting yourself one. Its an amazing buy for what you get. Its literally buying a DM12 for $500.00 minus the few extra bells and whistle but the main key features you want are the same.

Proto Paintball Reflex Rail 2012 If you want a nice little matrix on a budget get one. Not having an LPR means itll kick a little more and be a tad bit noisier. Great bang for the buck.

The 2012 reflex rail is such a beautiful mid-range marker! My marker is the 2012 PGA LEagues 20k edition (the one with the kraken on it) and it is such a beaut! The gun features a very consistently buttery smooth shot, has ingenious colour-coded o-rings and has a great stock board. The gun's internals (like other dye guns) are a bit finicky but all spoolys are imo. Buy this gun adn it'll be a fantastic out-of-box shooter!

I bought this gun about 3 months ago and I have no big complaints (Yet.) It shoots consistently and spot on for the most part. It is very light and durablewith solid construction. Like Shatters said I don't like the line connector it is very stiff so it moves to one of the sides. I prefer the one on the DM12. I can get 6 - 7 pods out of it. All around great gun.

Refelx PGA 2013
Bought this marker last month from Cousins Paintball,used it a couple of times including the Yeti game. At first,it was just another marker, no big deal.
The very first shot, "I WAS VERY IMPRESSED and SHOCKED".
Could not believe how fantastic this marker performed straight out of the box. No tickering or playing with the internals, only adjust my velocity from 270 fps to 280 fps. No ball breakage, even at high ROF, using the stock barrel. The stock barrel shot straight and far, no need to buy another barrel. The gas milerage is not good, it's not a problem because the fields include free air with entry fee. IMO, it's worth the money, perfect for woodsball & speedball. "Do not underestimate this marker"
