Take good care of it or buy another one for parts because they are a booger bear to get replacement parts for IIRC.

But for $30 for a minty 10 year old marker, how can you go wrong?

Tippmann A-5/Pro-lite/ProCarbine barrel threads. If you need/want an upgraded barrel, I have a used lapco bigshot 12" that I'm selling.

Yours has what is referred to (I probably mistaken) as a Euro grip frame.

I have an F4... it is not my favorite marker but it is kind of a classic. Has a very loud, sharp sound when fired. It its favor, it is very light and relatively easy to clean. If you need to get spare parts, I believe Bulldog Paintball was selling parts kits earlier this year and may still have them in stock.

I bought one originally back in........2000 or 2001, and i just bought another NIB about 4 months ago from bulldogpaintball, he still had some in his warehouse haha. My old one is a TP which will NOT shoot over 280fps, I've had it rebuilt, and the one I just got is a XP. They are super light, easy to field strip, I have stripped mine, upper and lower bodies in the field a couple of times. It is kind of slow shooting because it is a manual gun, and the trigger pull is hard, but other than that not a bad little gun.

I have 3 F-4's each one has been a solid reliable marker. Only issue I've encountered is when some debris makes it's way on to the cup seal, gotta love CO2

Anyway, they do have a distinctive sound when fired, there is a definite metallic ping, with each shot.

P.S. I've had all of mine since 94 or 95 they have seen plenty of use as loaners and as a primary gun for about 2 years I like them quite a bit.
