Shot my NT today, let me start by saying wow. I got my NT on Monday from CSPAINTBALL. It shot amazing today, I carry 6-7 pods out and a full 220 magna: air efficiency was never an issue and I always had more than 1g left.. I had 1 barrel break out of my 2nd case, which I blame condensation in barrel and paintball's swelling in the Texas heat. I did not have a swab but I didnt need one.it was shooting ball on ball, and very quiet.

Pro's: I love the frame,
-weight,
-bolt set up,
-barrel,
-efficiency is like a poppit!!
-regulator
-minimal kick
-dye case
-dye tool
-very prompt customer service
-color coded orings

cons:
-board (should have been a oled or LCD, I hate counting blinking llights, especially in this price range)
- grips ( I would've liked screws instead, and I feel the grips could hug the frame closer)
-should have came with cf boomstick in this price range
-feedneck (should have a finer thread screw or a thumb wheel)

overall I give this gun a 9 out of 10 as most of my cons were preference, gun works flawless and turns heads.

I got to use one at FUNDAY at Twisted Games of Texas last sunday! Best gun i'ver ever shot, played with, and held. If you take the grips of the frame is about 1/8 of an inch wide. it feels so good in the hands, all of the contact point bumbpers, it's baseically kickless. I've never had a problem with one ridding up after about 3 or 4 shots. No first shot drop off. but the one thing i don't like is that is still stores preasure after u unscrew your tank. But other than that, Dye has definately made the best gun ever! even beats the luxe, but that's just my opinion.

I agree with you that the NT is an awesome gun. One question though... what gun have you ever shot that does not hold air once you take your sir tank off? Because I have had Impulses, Egos, Dm's, Cockers, and all of those did. What I do like about the NT is the pressure release that allows you to have your gun turned off and still release the pressure from the gun. Also you can tell if there is any air in the gun by looking at that button.

I had my Death Squad NT yesterday. Shot it for the first time last nite. I love it. Didn't do any adjustments apart from cleaning the bolt and relubing as Dye literally dunk the bolt in a pot of lube. Shot over my hand chrono at 295,292,298. Reg was 130 checked with my tester from factory.

Well pleased with it!

Brand New Sky Nt!!! Amazing

hello nation. and fellow NT owners, so i just received my NT in the mail on 6-14-10 and shot it that day for the first time. i put about 1700 paintballs, bout 11 pods through it on a 3.8k fill. off of a 3800/4500 fill 70ci stubbie. wow was i surprised!! thats amazing efficiency. i was using a rotor and X-Ball paint (stupid sports authority doesnt have midnight blue in when i need it lol) well anyways. i had 1 barrel break, but thats just the paint.

First off, the NT right out of box shot amazing!!! all i did was move trigger alil bit of adjustment. it feels amazing!! the feel of the gun was amazing, it is really efficient. its BALL ON BALL accurate. it feels way better than my old luxe, and my sl8r i have. the NT has totally exceeded my standards. there was no kick at all, its the most accurate ball on ball, efficent, nicest, lightest, amazing, sexy marker ever made. the Sky Blue NT is absolutely amazing.

the first impression was sexy of the marker color. then i shot it, it shot amazing. i have no CON's on the NT. i love everything, the grips, eye plate, asa, efficiency, barrel, bolt, board, trigger, accuracy... could go on forever..

well now u know i love this gun!! i wont ever trade or sell this gun ever, im going to have it forever.


im so glad i took the advice of everyone to get the NT. i appreciate all of the help in receiving this amazing marker!!



this is just a quick review. will get better mabey later!!
also i took a video of the un boxing, and shooting. not a great video, but once i figure out how to download it and peice it together. it will be up!! lol.
im going to post pics of my NT in the pic thread.

anyways cya!!

My second NT arrived last week in Sky Blue and it shoots tits, just like my gloss black NT. I never had any problems with my first NT and I got it last october before all the chatter about updated parts. I never changed any of the parts, all i did was use the one spacer and body and shot the hell out of it. Great marker, cant really complain about it. I cant wait to get my hands on my next NT.

Personally, my favorite thing about my nt is how flat this thing shoots. It's almost inconvenient because you have to relearn how to shoot your paintball gun lol!!! But this thing will freaking reach out and touch people! I thought my dm9 was accurate but this takes it to another world. Back players are gonna be ruthless with this technology!!! Even though I play front

got a champ and orange LE NT.

Marker shoots amazing(better than my last luxe and my dm10)
-smooth and consistant and efficient
-has all the latest upgrades and parts

Grips are terrible and rubber is meh(white)
They are peeling apart already and I cant get the damn things off. Bwing makes it look so easy lol.

my nt

I have had my nt since the beginning. I had my problems with it at the Las Vegas event last year. I took it to dye and they fixed it for me. Since then I wouldn't give my gun up for anything. It shoots awsome, and when I let other people shoot it and they love it. Its accurate, and extremely air efficient. I am so glad that I invested in this gun.

have shot about 4 cases with my mikko NT and all i can say i WOW
compared to my dm9 its very light and so accurate, keep the line where ever i put my gun, and the trajectory feels flatter.

but i have 1 prob with the gun, sometimes when i shoot the shot gets louder and slower, like 20fps down on the chrono. Have you guys heard anthing about that problem?

blue BW modded flow insert 0 spacers or spacer rod 6ms dwell 130 psi on the hpr

33.3bps is the highest possible to set on the stock board i think.

tried a better quality paint last sunday and the "loud" noice in some of the shots disapered.

im trying out some kind of mod ive done to the airchamber on the spool, to try make the bolt smoother running:p( a little bird said to me that it might be like a bw mod of some sort:p) time will show after work today if it worked out good or not:p
