Anyways, im into woodsball. I will rate this marker upon my opinion of how it would perform in my ideal woodsball scenario.

First off, red is not a good colour to belnd in with anything in paintball unless your in speedball, but even if you were in speedball camo isnt something your probably going to use. so i give the paintjob a -2. The scope is useless, you need to have atleast a good 20 inch barrel, like a j&j or a lapco big-shot to have any bother using a scope in paintball, or your gun would have ot be really accurate for it to be worth it. so for that i give a 2. The bi-pod isnt my idea of a good, useable designed bi-pod. For example, The bi pod goes on the ground nad its not that tall so when your prone its easier to sue and so when you go in a windom in a building a better chance of fitting in there with it. Plus there would have to be a swivel at the connection to the gun so you can aim different ways without having it drag along the ground and you can stay in one place.(as AAbatteries said "useless plastic"). Is a special rubber grip realyl necesary?(apex muzzles i also think are useless) it also dont blend in with the environment. Lets face it, your not gona paly speedball with this nad rec ball would be waste of all the stuff you put into it. (imagine runing on a speedball field with this gun while you were wearing a ghilie suit, Its like a dodge neon hauling an atv on its hitch)

i rest my case. wave:

Silly stuff

Wait... What!?
I apologize if this comes off as a wrong-place/wrong-time mild rant, but I feel compelled to state the following:
For starters, that's actually a nice mod, a nice paint-job and a solid looking MIL-SIM marker.
To direct more towards where my surprise stems from, I will state that if it helps, I grew up in the Military, I currently serve in the Navy and I've been playing paintball since roughly the mid-nineties. With that in mind I have to say that a red camo-job like that won't really degrade concealment to much one way or the other in the woods. The pattern is broken up and it's a dark red. If it was screaming neon pink or mirrored chrome, there might be an issue.
A scope on a paintball gun is for looks and looks alone. 12, 14, 20 inches... Doesnt matter. The marker will shoot the same distance thanks to physics and countless of reasons that have been beaten to death on this forum. The only time length of your barrel affects the paint is when it's to long, in which case the distance traveled is detrimental to the paintball due to friction.
That bi-pod is a copy of the Harris Bi-Pod, a brand used by hunters, sports-shooters and snipers for the last 30+ years. It does not swivel from side to side, it swivels slightly on a vertical up and down plane so you can adjust for line-of-sight angle, it is not extremely tall... It adjusts enough to stabilize a rifle on various terrain and no one uses a bi-pod to shoot through windows unless you live in Hollywood.
The "special rubber grip" is a common feature found on most modern AR-15s, M-14s and M-16s that have a shorter barrel designed for use in close-quarters combat situations. It maintains control from recoil climb and in paintball, is again, mostly for looks.

I'm sorry if this comes off as nit-picky, but I eat, sleep and breath the military, have extended friends and family in the military, own a variety of firearms and get mildly frustrated when I see someone try to critique a subject with very little sound fact. It's akin to someone standing up and declaring: "I now present my presentation on Alaska... I'm an expert on this as I once watched the movie Balto...."

Personally, yeah, that's a right nice MIL-SIM/Woodsball marker.
You could most likely use it in speedball, but it would be rather amusing to watch and most likely not recommended.
Still, kudos to your marker and have fun with paintball, because ultimately, no matter what you play, that's the name of the game is to shoot your friends and enjoy yourself doing so.

Unfortunately paintball is pretty much nothing like real guns. 300 fps compared to 2670 fps, some odd number like that. Theres no comparison, the projectiles is round, not the best aero-dynamics, is not balnced the paint inside will shift and move, the ball isnt perfectly fit to the barrel. and theres usualy no rifling and if there is, its not great. Rubber grips are also not too necesary unless your in woodsball with a really heavy kicking gun because on most guns kick is nothing compared to real guns. I dont think military can apply to much here. :/

P.S. The pattern is broken and cna blend, but theres much better colour choices than red, so i stand on it not being good camo.

Did you really just try to argue against him using the same fact he stated?
