My friend has a TGR2, and although I haven't seen a 468 in action (personally), the mags and mag well alone is enough to make the switch; especially with a one-kit deal like this for 700 bucks, it's a buy and forget (you are completely set up, marker-wise, with this kit). The TGR mags are the best mags in the milsim paintball world. I've seen my buddy walk through chest deep water on a flank (huge mistake), swap a soaked mag in, and have no issues in it's operation.

The bolt-spring kit is a nice addition. No need to adjust velocity, which keep air efficiency great. Modifications to the spring-bolt can be done, such as, putting washer behind to add a bit of tension to the spring for minor adjustments without having to change air pressure. It is also best to use a liquid (oil) lubricant and switch the stock paste out.

What really surprised me when I first held my friend's TGR2 was the weight distribution on a fully loaded 13 tank. It was even from tip to tip. It was not top heavy, front heavy, etc. It was remarkably balanced.

It's not all roses and tulips. Not all markers are like that either. On the TGR2, at least, the dexterousness of the mag release would have righties have the mag release not properly align itself in which you want to make sure you mag is properly inserted. He was giving a demonstration on the marker after I was playing with it. He has military experience in the reserves, so this doesn't happen to him, but during the demonstration I messed up the mag release and the mag fell out right after he said "haven't experienced any issues with it since I got it". Lol. So although those mags and mag well is incredible, just need to give a bit of care in the minor details.

Another issue I saw was the barrel. Stock barrel is fine, and my friend uses a back-ported barrel (forget the name). First strike rounds are incredibly accurate out of this puppy. It is the same story with the stock barrel. Out of the box it is still quite accurate. But this issue is more universal. Outside of Proto and eclipse, and heck, even dangerous power, I always suggest switching out that stock barrel.

Also note that brittle paint is not for this marker. Make sure you don't shoot marbs or anything like that. First strike and more of the lower-end field paint (harder shell) is a must. HPA works great on it, but not brittle/weak paint.

It is an expensive investment, but frankly, with a deal like this, it's best to jump on it (especially when you get free shipping!). Milsigcanada is a great guy to deal with, as well! To have such a personal touch in service to the paintball community is incredible. Rap4 is nice, but they don't they give such a personal touch like milsig does.

Note: This is from a TGR2 point of view as opposed to the MK2 variant. Also a lot of feedback from my friend's use of the marker.

Same comment to Avint =)

We'll try our best to hold onto the stock!

All depends on when our production shipments come, which are usually hit or miss (+/- 2 or 3 weeks). So, right now we will run out of stock soon!

Message me if you have any direct concerns!

Rodinski!

Thanks for such a great review of the gun - it's fair and unbiased... the two most important aspects of a review!

And thank you to your friend who has graciously bestowed his own personal experiences to you- making you an interested TGR2 owner!

No problem! Hopefully more people jump on this deal and help promote the milsim game style. Although I'm just getting into the milsim-mag fed scene, knowing friends and or watching scenario games based on mag fed markers adds a completely different, and exciting genre to paintball.

Heck, going mag fed is actually quite cost effective. It's hilarious how many more balls we use compared to my friends set up. We'll usually end up with the same game performance as well in our scenario games.

Most people who buy other mag-fed markers buy a mag well kit to be able to use scarab (TGR2) mags. The TGR2 accepts all mags except for square head mags.
