I'm not impressed with this marker at all.
It's a great idea for the money. But lacks the solid feel of a pump and feels more like a stingray. Shoots like a spring loaded BB gun.
Until someone makes a lower receiver and pump handle out of aluminum,seems like a lot of extra personal touches and work for a sub par FSR marker.
Hopefully it won't be long before some real nice add on's are made just for ME to be satisfied with it.

It seems there are some things that will never push a person's views past their initial perceptions. With plenty of other pumps on the marker, this one might not be a fit for you.

If FSR is your thing, it appears that there are a couple people looking to make the Empire Trracer FSR mag-fed; but the ET uses similar composite parts.

I can say on good grounds that first strike rounds are all. 687.
I tested the box I had, and had a pile of 689, and a pile of 687 and a pile that fell thru 687. consistent they are not.

I disagree, I think its a very solid platform. with a little tweaking its very smooth and it shoots like a beast. but as its been stated, maybe its just not the gun for you.

Disappointed for 130 invested? Ok I hate to down other products but here's what you could have gotten. The T9 which has inherent internal reg issues. He ccm which is a work of art but only gets one shot at a time and has no tank in stock options so your stuck with remote or carts. The t4.....yeah.....the sar12 which is my favorite pic but who wants to pay 1k bux for? The DAM which dye in my opinion is totally out if touch both on the price and on what constitutes a practical scenario marker. Sooooo which would you prefer. Btw all of these are considerably more expensive than the hammer. This is excluding and DIY mods or fs breech compatible markers where it's just a squared hole like the trracer. I think maybe your expecting to much for 130 dollars

I do have A sr-1 And 86 other markers.
Just I'm sure you guys rather pay a little more for a SOLID feeling marker.
I think it's great that you can. Get your foot in on the mag/fsr game for under 2 bills.
The point is not everyone has the tools and ability to modify markers.
And until someone makes some after market upgrades. Ill pass.
