Not that I don't agree; but how is that notion even brought up in paintball. :-p

The "one I'll leave alone" has already tallied two ebay purchases and two more I'm looking to make. It's a disease.

Btw, it the Fasta hopper considerably smaller than a Halo/Invert Too? How about compared to a Revolution 2000?

The plastic barb that screws into the body runs straight thru the 3 way and is glued in place (That's how it is on the VIBE/ENVY solenoid). You just have to becareful when you put on a new hose. I find a little spit helps.

This whole gun is just an ENVY/VIBE with a new name and new frame, for beginners and field rentals. The only thing new is a 3 way and frame other then that, it's still the same

I find using a "DERMA-SAFE.com" blade helps with installation . You should never have to remove the 3 way unless it's leaking or needs to be replaced. Or, if you decide to convert to electro.

So I just got back from my second full day on the field with this gun, and I'm even more impressed. I've never gotten on my teammate's nerves before, standing at the starting box just jumping around singing about how much I love my gun. One of the refs who'd shot it at Cup asked to shoot it with my Fibur barrel, and he was just in awe of how it stacked ball on ball across the field...shooting crappy Heat field paint.

Buy one. You'll love it.

Murf425, GOG owes you marketing royalties.

You posts and pics have convinced me to make the purchase. Gun's oredered and Fibur barrel purchased. I'm gonna splurge on some Pachmayr grips and an on/off and call this one done.

I'm giddy!

Hes not lying, I was amazed by it fully. I hit an 8" wide post a good few times from atleast 70 or so feet? Would you say it was about that? This thing is deadly. Just deadly. If I ever get to play murf instead of reffing, I want to use one of these. With my brass barrel. And evil. And a bodyguard.

Sounds like Murf has been having a blast with this thing. When I shot it at Cup, I pretty much wet my pants from sheer excitement.

What's the quality of the stock barrel with meh paint?
The one at cup, I shot highend GI and I don't think that's accurate for basic normal play.

Blackrain, that's fine with me.
Pretty much. You want as few steps in the bore as possible, not to mention most thread adapters I've seen are .690 bore. So you'll be going from big back down to small, to big again by using a DW with an adapter.

I never played with the stock barrel. It seemed to do okay at Cup, but the booth was only about 15' long, so I couldn't really be sure. But I had the barrel laying around from being on my Ion, so the day I brought it home I threw the stock barrel away and put the Fibur on it.

Got to dry fire one yesterday, I was impressed with the trigger pull. The marker doesn't feel cheaply made (all things considered), with a solid feel. I look forward to getting my hands on one to shoot.
