That is a Dragun Dragunfly. A VERY low end mechanical autococker clone. It uses Spyder threaded barrels. The LPR is garbage, and the ram isn't much better. The stock bolt sucks, and it's NOT compatible with any "generic" autococker bolts made due to being slightly different bore in the body.

That said, if you get it timed well, it is a VERY smooth shooting marker, and is amazingly reliable. I had SEVERAL of them in the course of my playing time (2 mechs, 1 electronic), and one of the mechs that I sold to a friend of mine was still working without being retimed 5 years later.

They're not worth much though. As they don't use standard autococker parts, they're basically impossible to upgrade. You'd be lucky to get $50 out of it. Just keep it and play with it, they shoot really well, and if you get it timed good, they will give you GREAT efficiency. And they can work on co2 without issue.

Yeah, they are so rare that it really hurt their resale. Let me know if you think about selling though. I've always wanted an Dragunfly.

judging by the round tank im gonna guess that they actually are running a compressed air setup on that one which is even better.

No, Compressed air tanks used in paintball are compressed at a MUCH higher psi than your everyday compresser can function at. you are lucky to get 100 psi out of that compresser at your station.. Compressed air tanks used in paintball are 3000psi or 4500psi.. You can get them filled at your local paintball store/field or S.C.U.B.A shop because their tanks operate at those pressures, but check the hydro date on the tank before you get it filled.

You'll need to fill that air tank with a paintball fill station for sure.
