Empty Eos inside
EVERY THING INSIDE THE STARS IS NOT PART OF THE ACTUAL REVIEW JUST FIRST TIME USE STUFF THAT I THOUGHT ID LEAVE.
**********************since its xmas today i have alot to do so ill post a full review sometime this week but i did get to shoot it, went through 4 hoppers very nicely not the gratest paint it was kind of sitting around but thats all i had. i was anxious to shoot it and had NO BREAKS whatsoever which was nice. i was shooting consistant at avg of 280 fps on the chrono nothing really off, had a perfect paint to barrel match with the freak kit (def reccomend) shot ropes no problems yet but its still early...the trigger is one of the best triggers ive ever shot and its stock. the asa is good however it could be better, but its nothing bad and the short line looks sick. i have a virtue so changing modes is easy as anything... more to come so far though its been great...great gun for people that dont feel like dropping a huge load of money and like easy maintenance, i took the bolt out changed around parts looked at stuff and put it back together in under five min and i was checking it out so it can be done much faster than that(good for most people for routine cleanings)...very simmilar to the epiphany with a few kinks dealt with. The back out bolt is great and saves alot of cleaning time and the body is one of the nicest out. Although i have a virtue and a qev the gun preforms at top level stock and the only upgrade that i would reccomend is a new board/qev...some people like a new reg but thats up to you...full review/videos soon
yesterday was the first time i took it out on the feild and it ripped no problems whatsoever same really as the day i got it went thru about 3 cases of paint really nice...i shud put up a vid tommarow**********************
Okay a few days on the field and got a nice feel for the gun
first of all i'll start with the pro's
-This gun rips capped at 17 bps is more then you need on the field, however i did upgrade with a virtue board where you can never go wrong and you get the modes ect (if anyone was wondering right now it has an epiphany virtue so it wont say eos if you want to order one online)
-the trigger, probly the best stock trigger i have ever shot my magnet seems tighter then others that i have shot and the trigger seems further away aswell but i got used to it fast and it didnt pose as any problem, its super fast dont need to make any upgrades here.
-it comes stock with everything you need for top competition and torny level play (on/off asa, sick trigger,ion bolt, good board, freak jr ext)
- The price, even though other low priced guns can compete with this gun it is still at a low price so you wont have an empty pocket to compete with guns that will give you one
-freak jr barrel (shoots ropes especialy with optional insert kit 79$ ish)
- works great overall no problems on the field
-cleans like a dream with the BOB
cons; yeah there are a few but the same holds with all guns they arn't major problems either and some tend to be opinions
- this wasnt happening with all of the eos's i shot but when i just walk the tigger ungassed somtimes it sticks to the frame, when its gassed i have never had that problem and the guy at the shop said that it shouldnt be a problem either so take that for what its worth
- the finish on the chrome body does wear a little bit even if your a diligent cleaner but it doesnt chip or look bad its actually hard to notice
- the asa isnt the greatest but it is an on off and some people like it id prefer a dye or bob long...bottom line it works.
if the gun works and is a high end gun its about the player but with that aside heres my experience
I play front so accuracy was nice but i gave my friend the gun whose a back for a round to really test it at 240fps and a nice paint to barrel fit it shot ropes.
3 days of play no barrel breaks no leaks just ripped.
in the chrono it was very consistant i shot 240 237 245 243
the virtue worked great and went through hoppers on ever mode
(just for referance i have a vlocity viewloader hopper some peopel may get a different experience)

Recommendations; its really a great gun all around id say its a great second gun or a gun for someone who wants high performance for a low price, if your an athletic first time player youl and want to get a gun you might be pulled to this and its nice look it will last you a long time if you take care of it but your local arena might through you in with players out of your leage so buy at your own risk, it is a great gun for all players interested or playing paintball and for the price you cant go wrong
hope this all helped a vid will be up soon if you want a cleaning vid just pm me and ill post it on the thread but its pretty easy and in closing i give the eos a 9 out of 10 because like dooko said nothing is perfect
