my local pro shop owner says this is a reallly good gun. i came to him because i was debating this or the Invert Mini, i decided on this. You might want to put on some macroline and fittings, but other than that, it's pretty great

It's all personal preference. I just shot mine for the first time the other day. It's real nice. no chope, but i did get a barrel break. real accurate, and not total crap with broken paint in it. easy to clean and lube

Excellent marker, the best marker in the $300 price range IMO.

It's super smooth, feels awesome in your hands, the feedneck is good, the trigger is good, and it functions on a very reliable design, with no sears like the SLG.

If you get shot in the jaw you remember you are playing paintball, man the fuck up and say thank you sir, may I have another. - Cdn

Yeah I've owned one since World Cup, and I'd DEFIANTLY recommend it. Do not even bother looking at anything else in this price range. Mini's don't hold a candle to this thing. All I can say is that you'll need to buy a clamping feed need shell eventually, but that's the only "upgrade" you "need".

If you put a barrel on it that is a little better than the stock one it shoots real good for the price

Besides barrel, the stock is like .691. Besides barrel and a clamping neckfeed. I suggest also picking up a 'Dye' sticky grip for the older DM/NT, they are really cheap now online or ebay. Pickup one from e-bay for $10 shipped. Reason: the rubber seems nicer than the stock and the best part is that the LED window is much bigger and nicer. You can actually see the color outdoors whereas the stock one had a hard time. So for a grip and neckfeed under $40, you get yourself a very nice paint thrower.
