I absolutely love Aliens. I've owned three independences, and each of them have not disappointed. They all shoot very well and are extremely low maintenance. I personally think the milling on them looks fantastic (not a huge fan of the look of the new Deception). They come with a really nice critical trigger which makes it easy to shoot of fast strings of paint. The key downside with Aliens is that they are such a niche marker that there is very little, if any support for them outside of sending it to Jack Rice. I am the only person I've ever seen with an Alien at the fields I go to; Alien is just a very small paintball company. Don't let that dissuade you, because the performance of the Independence is hard to beat!

Pros: light weight, extremly accurate easy to clean
Cons: customer service is terrible
needed a new marker thought i would try a new company, bought an alien used and when i got it i was supprised at how light it was, and for a poppet valve marker it had no kick, the sweep bolt and valve system work very well and give the marker a very flat and accurate shot, i used this marker for 2 tournaments it worked great, but when i got the marker the previous owner put oil through the marker so it was a ticking time bomb before it was gonna die, when the o-rings finally kicked the bucket I contacted alien to get new orings and a cup seal.

so here is where the down fall of this product is, the customer service is not just bad its terrible, i contacted jack multiple times sometime i would get an answer sometimes i wouldnt, when i did get an answer, i requested a price on o-ring and a cup seal, never really got a straight answer he just kept telling me to send the marker in and they would bill me, i told him i wanted to buy the parts and fix it my self, no answer,

i have always wanted another one of these markers since i sold mine but i doubt i would buy one just cause of customer service.

overall great marker just terrible to deal with on the customer service end
