i totally agree it takes some getting used to. also its not the best for fast action type games like hyperball etc etc - on those games i find myself going back to the DM. however on the bigger woods games the gun can lay some paint and its very accurate!
best part is the maintenance is so easy! wipe down the body and spend 2 minutes re-lubing the bolt.
the only little drawback i see to this gun is the magazine with paintballs especially on a semi warm day. you MUST engage the "release pressure" clip or whatever it is built into the mag. if you dont use them very quickly your painballs will get deformed really bad and will probably break when you go to use them. i have heard this is common on any magfed gun but this was my first so just wanted to point this out.
