You will find this little marker works great and reliably every time you take it out of your bag. Do maintenance on it periodically and use good quality batteries. This marker is the best bag for your buck on the market.

I don't personally own one, but my cousin does and I have got to shoot it some. It is a nice marker, but you have to remember that it is considered PE's entry level marker. It does have a noticeable vibration while shooting it, but not enough to distract you while playing. Expect to spend more time playing and less time worrying about your marker. Now don't get me wrong it will require a little more maintenance than an Ego, but as long as you take care of it every so often it should take care of you. It has a lot of great features stock like the SL3 reg found on the Ego11/Geo2/3, clamping feedneck, on/off Asa, Shaft4 barrel and adjustable trigger. They are really a great marker for the money and they are backed by a great company! Be sure to read the owners manual and you can find videos on YouTube about maintenance if you need visual help. It will work great for you out of the box, but if you decide you want to squeeze more performance out of it, you should look at the Etha Shaft4 boost kit, possibly a Violent Trigger or a TechT bolt although I've heard mixed reviews about those.

It's also a gas hog, it's pretty loud, and the vibration is sometimes so severe that it makes the barrel come loose. It's a good gun for the price, but in the end you get what you pay for. If you put paint in it, it will shoot every time.

Barrel come loose?? I have own this marker since it first came out and never had a problem and I have a lot of marker. Remember the marker does not make the player used it and enjoy it.

It's actually pretty average in efficiency for the price range. If you want to make it a little more efficient and smoother you can get the TechT MRT bolt and adjust your reg down for the added velocity. Although I've heard mixed reviews about those. It's really not that loud either compared to Egos, but you can kind of hear the spring moving while it's shooting. If the barrel came loose it must of had an oring on the bore or it was tightened enough, my cousins barrel has never came loose. Like you said it will shoot every time you use it and it's backed by a great company.

I own one myself. its my backup I let all my friends use it and ive used it a few times to lend out my etek3.

and your getting reliability, ease of maintenace, overall GREAT marker for a good price.

dont listen to all this detail junk about vibration, noise, blah blah.

Sorry the nit-picking over spilled milk annoys me. if you have girly twig arms and horrible muscle memory...then i think this gun or ANY gun would be bad for you.

All you should worry about is performance, reliability, maintenace, and any issues...

which this gun has none of. so enjoy

you will expect to own a marker backed by the best company in paintball. It will not shoot like a $1000 Marker, but it will shoots 12.5 bps at very consistent velocities with some vibration through the marker. Overall, it is a very solid product especially for the price.
