Anyone have experience with this marker? Or any ups/rants about it?

I haven't been able to get out with mine yet (been tuning) but everyone raves about them - the Tac One is the same marker, just with a MilSim body. The RT effect is basically the pin behind the trigger bouncing the trigger back into place - if you hold it halfway it will bounce itself and go full auto. Cool thing is, the XValve is rated to 3000 psi, and I have a custom Ninja reg set to output 1200, it RIPS. Probably 20-25bps no electronics. Its mechanical Level 10 antichop bolt is amazing also (if tuned properly, it is PHYSICALLY impossible to chop). There's a video on youtube of a guy that hooked his up to a scuba tank at 3000 psi... got it going at 34.5 bps (yes, with paint).
Original blow-forward marker, from what I know (Tiberius uses similar now) - very consistent design (regulator built in to gun). Only issue is level 10 takes some tuning out of the factory, and after break in. It's easy if you do a little research, there are plenty of threads.
You can also upgrade with the ULT trigger, which keeps it mechanical but reduces pull to 15 oz - walkable mech! Other mods include Pneumatics (make an electronic light pull as far as I can tell). There are plenty of mods out there - essentially, Automags are the original competing design vs. Autocockers. Don't ask which is better, or fanboys may flame you.
So far, my experience with the Tac One has been good (test purposes only, so far) - other than the tuning, as the fellow I got it from really messed with stuff (tried to get his ULT to go full auto but didn't understand how he could - it's designed to be tourney legal. It's really easy to do actually, just put in too many shims...).
The RT Custom isn't sold with that rail on top anymore, btw. You can still buy them, but not sure if you need a special body to accommodate them - you might be able to get one here, for example: http://www.tunamart.....php?c=27&p=418
BEWARE: From what I can tell you may need a "Twist-lock" barrel for this marker - not many made now-a-days... the Tac One uses Autococker threads, so it's easier.
I believe Palmers makes twist-locks still, but I remember a thread about Flasc possibly doing some.

And the rail is just sexy, IMO... wouldn't think of using it for a sight.
It just works.

True - I did with the Longbow I picked up...
But then again I got it all for $450 (with Qloader too).

It was quite the package but the tank fill nipple started leaking and standard ones wouldn't fit it for some reason... so I got my custom Ninja tank ($200 CAD ). Used Christmas money to pick up an Empire Proph, ASA, feedneck, etc for ease of use (haven't been out to test the Qloader yet, but it has been well short of reliable for many people).
I'll probably use the Longbow for mostly non-scenario games - the hopper will help with big games, and it's easier if I lend it out to my girlfriend LOL I got her the 280 ball nosecone - it's a blimp.

So why did I just say buy used if possible, because generally people have extra stuff with it they want to get rid of lol.
If your dead set on buying new, well i can't really stop you.
Get the barrel last, the stock RT barrel is pretty good.
