My first paintball marker. I am VERY happy with my experience with this marker, despite the fact that the weight may make you slower and get sore faster. But, I digress. This marker easily ranks high for beginner woodsball/scenario weapons. Also, despite what many believe, you do not need a sight. Spend your money on foregrips, barrels, stocks, etc. I've even played speedball with it (Not recommended :P)
8/10 for beginner mil-sim
I've read the other reviews and I have to agree and disagree with some of them. I purchased this in a package a few weeks ago. The marker itself looks really cool but it has a couple of flaws, in my opinion. First, the gun is so long with the butt stock that it is very tough to aim at someone when you have a mask on in the playing field. Of course the butt stock can be removed but that just makes the gun look silly. Secondly, I've had rental equipment shoot straighter than this. I was not impressed. This makes a red dot sight pretty much useless as an upgrade. I didn't find the weight tough to handle and so far I haven't chopped a ball yet. For the price, I guess it's okay but be prepared to spend more money than the price of the gun on upgrades.
Seems pretty accurate for my first gun
gun is great for those who are not competitive players but for those who want to have fun and look good while doing it. you will probably get some crap from others at the field about it being heavy while they hold a $1000 gun.
Bought this marker for my younger brother I sport an alpha black with a full upgrade. He used this for the first time a couple weeks ago and loved it. Its accurate with no chopping and the fold in stock is the icing on cake from a look and usability stand point. Not to heavy and if you get a remote and vest for your tank it is very light weight.
Personally I like this marker over the alpha black due to the tactical rails that come on it. For the alpha black you have to purchase and install the tactical rails while the salvo has all the rails on it you will ever need stock. For woods ball scenario shooting I think this is one of the best guns on the market.
i'm new to paintball. played woodsball before and loved it. my decision on a starter marker came down to the project salvo and the alpha black. because the salvo has the picatinny rail shroud on it already and doesn't require any upgrading to attach accessories i decided this was the best. upon it's arrival i was amazed. hear a lot of people complain about it's weight but isn't that what you want from a milsim marker? you want it to feel like a real assault rifle. can't wait to start adding accessories and upgrading this marker. truly a beautiful gun.
