they shoot fine and all but the trigger, pump stroke and over all feel is kinda funky. i cant really explain it other than it feels cheap and gritty.
This past saturday I played the whole day with a empire sniper. I normally play semi but on days where there a low turn out or if I play with a bunch of renters, I play with a pump.
Overall I liked it and didn't have any issues with it. Having the barrel kit and using the 10rd SC feedtube was fun. The pump stroke was smooth and did not have a binding/grinding feel to it. Only thing I would change if I would buy one is the pump handle. I have large hands, so the pump have feels a little small to me.
I think empire did a great job with this marker. It is priced/marketed for mid end player. If you want something more high end go pay more and buy CCM.
