Let me first start by saying that I am a huge fan of this marker. So, here is my honest attempt at an unbiased review. When I first played with this marker I was new to total pump play and trying to improve my game by focusing on strategy and movement, and largely I was broke, so I decided pump play was the way to go. When this marker arrived I was highly excited to hold it, and even more anxious to play. When first I picked it up, I couldnt help but notice that it is on the heavy side for a marker as it has a solid frame, very solid in fact. Also, the coating on it is very nice, and durable, no chips or scratches yet, and it has been roughly two years of play since. Now that I have told you how it looks, its time to focus on how it played when game time came. Me being new to pump play, I hadnt acquired the knowledge that you have to stroke the marker with some authority, and so it seemed to not wish to fire, but once it was pointed out to me that all I needed to do was stroke the pump a little harder on the back stroke, it was all uphill from there. The chronograph showed me that once an hpa tank is attached to this gun, she is rock steady in terms of velocity. I literally chronoed the exact same number three times in a row, and only noticed +/- 5 fps at most. I was kinda eyeballing the reviews on here before purchasing it, and so I followed the advice of numerous people and ditched the stock barrel for a jnj ceramics 12 inch barrel. Being honest this thing is accurate as hell when you use hpa, I can honestly say I had no trouble shooting people while running, making long range lobs, or simply snap shooting it. Some of that is due to her shape. With this things tank acting as a stock, there is a crude front sight on the pump arm, and a rail like pair of rear sights to make a sight index with. My only gripe about using the sights on this marker is that you cant really use them with out pushing the front sight to one side or the other because the pump arm has some sway to it, as it only has one single point of contact really with the reciever, and that is by way of a rod below the barrel. It is a breeze to clean as one nut removed from the front really allows you to pull the bits out of her and give them a thorough cleaning. Truthfully, this marker has one seal in it, and has a lifetime warranty. If you can look past the weight, learn the technique of rough stroking the pump, and use hpa, she actually holds her own with phantoms, and other high end pumps. I would have given her a perfect score if not for her performance with co2, and the difficulty I had keeping balls from rolling out the end of the barrel. I have since read a sticky on the forums here and rectified this with the electrical tape rememedy, and she is still pumping happily away to this day, and accurately no less. So, my personal opinion is buy it, and reap the field!
