Sniper Review

I know there is already a thread about this marker. After holding it I would like to say my thought. First off this marker feels great in the hands. The grips are swells and are very comfortable. It seems to just point itself. The pump stroke is very smooth. Not CCM smooth but up there. What it comes with out of the box it great. That on off is really easy to work. Kee definitely set the bar for stock barrels. As we all know with paint getting smaller stock barrels don't cut it anymore. The regulator is great it reminds me of a planet eclipse with the angle of the fitting. Adding the gauge is another example of the features this marker has. Many people wondered about the auto trigger. It needs to be timed but is a success in my opinion. It is just like any CCM auto trigger I have ever tried. The grip frame is different from any other. It is not a sloppy frame nice and crisp pull. This marker is crazy light. They put a lot of thought into milling to make it light as possible. The anodizing is very high quality. Having gloss black and a dust hard anodizing color is a nice contrast. Overall I say it is a job well done. Out of the box it comes with everything you need. When you buy this there is no need to upgrade. I think it is worth the money they are charging. A step in the right direction for paintball. When I receive my T2 this week I will be doing a comparison. Hve a good one guys.

Nice, good to hear! These guns are a sign of mainstream paintball finally giving high end pumps a chance. Hopefully they sell enough to encourage more development!

Did it require any tuning out of the box besides setting the lug?

When I held it no tuning at all.

I got to handle Carter's Sniper and dry fire it. I loved it. Weight and balance pretty good, trigger and AT was great. The extras that come with it are very nice. I will ditch my cocker sniper once I get an Empire.
