This is the perfect gun for the new player that doesn't want to do any maintenance. it was a little difficult to take apart for the first time when I just started but it is rarely necessary for you to take it apart.

if you get upgrades, i would suggest a better barrel, cyclone hopper, and a double trigger (I like double triggers better). I love loaning this gun to friends because it is so simple to use and doesn't have problems so long as i clean it and lube it once in a blue moon.

One of the best beginner guns out there and I made my start with it. This gun is a great value and of use from beginners and up. Very customizable and very affordable. This gun can be a money pit though, especially if you want to compete with it in speedball. The most reliable marker I have ever probably ever used, this thing is a work horse and can go to hell and back. One of few only negatives of the gun for me was it also eats a tank like its a light snack. The other downfall it had for me was stripping it, too many screws, too awkward, at least this is with the older styles that you have to take apart completely. I also did not like the feedneck on the side but this can be fixed with the centerfed upgrade, however this is just my personal preference as I have never been a fan of this style.
Overall a wonderful marker for new players and anyone that loves to tinker with their guns.

I GOT THIS FROM A RELATIVE, THAT'S WHY I GOT IT CHEAP I'm going to be as simple as can be.
This gun IS reliable. The gun IS efficient.
The gun is a little overpriced for it being stock.
DEFINATELY get this gun if you're first starting. I use this for both SPEEDBALL and WOODSBALL.
This gun can go through a case of 1,000 with a 20 ounce CO2 tank.
What people want to know when looking at a review...
NO PROBLEMS YET. CHEAP. FOR ALL GAME TYPES. DEFINATELY BUY IT
Thanks!

I litertally found this gun in my uncle's barn. Cleaned her up a little bit and bought a new gravity hopper. Put in ma C02 tank and this gun still shoots like a champ.

This is a great starter gun for anyone whos looking to get into paintball. Perfect for woods ball. The only thing I dont like about this are the looks. To bulky I feel like and just doesn't look appealing in my eye.

Great gun for starter

I never had a reliability issue with this gun until recently, fortunately it was an easy, and cheap fix.
As long as you keep it cleaned and oiled, you will not be disappointed.
