Just wondering if anyone has heard from or bought from Sniper Paintball Gun Pro. I saw that they had posted up here a few days ago. And went to their site. Anyone with any info would be greatly appreciated.

That post was the first time I have heard of them.

Looked around their site, but nothing there really interests me. I couldn't tell you either way about their reputation.

I would stay away just based on all their products could be had from the manufacturers or more reliable sources.

Also half the crap they have in the FAQ makes no sense; for instance (edits in bold):

Quote

An M4 Real Action Paintball Marker or RAP4, also known as M4 RAM is a mechanically accurate paintball gun replica of a US military and Police machine gun. Really, so firearms (real steel) use Co2 to fire bullets now? The RAP4 operates in the same way the real military firearm does except it will only shoot PAINTBALLS. Not so much, but okay..The paintballs are fitted in metal alloy shells or biodegradable plastic shells. The M4 RAM is powered by an environmentally friendly CO2 tank. The RAP4 ejects each spent paintball shell after it is fired just like a real M4 machine gun. The RAP4 is a paintball marker designed specifically for realistic combat simulation, including magazine capacity (20 rounds), function, and form. It features a fully automatic firing mode.

The rest of their FAQ's don't make all too much sense either (namely the "can I use this at a field section, though it may be true at some fields).


Their "sister sites" are: http://www.sniperpai...unpro.com/links

Its basically all rap4 products, if you were to buy just go to RAP4's website and do so from there. That way you can't get screwed (well, except owning a cRAP4).

How is a CO2 tank enviormentally friendly?? :huh:

But i agree, just buy direct from the manufacturer. Unless they put their own custom parts (which probably aren't quality) on there, it is almost always cheaper to buy direct from the manufacturer and cut out the middle man. As the middle man needs to add markup in order to make cash on the deal...and yes...avoid cRap4 products. They are far from quality

I should also mention that I do the home work on my purchases, I could find things any cheaper on google merchant center.

I rarely defend cRAP4, but...
Given the general lack of technical knowledge shown in the article, I think that mean "enviormentally friendly" when compared to real firearms - with smoke, chemical propellants etc. CO2 isn't nearly as polluting as cordite.

I hope. Or the author just doesn't know what they're talking about...

Say WHAT??! LOL at spent paintball shells :P I guess you could say it "ejects" them...from the barrel. :D

So what if I work there! Does that not entitle me to an opinion on the subject for some reason? You obviously work for/with this website and seem to be able to offer your opinion on it just fine. Just because I work some place doesn't mean that I have to buy their products. I might work at a Ford dealership and drive a Chevy. Fact of the matter is that I wanted a paintball landmine and they had it. I also looked around at other places and they had the best price. I bought it, it showed up and it worked. If for some reason I can't talk about that it would be news to me.

Point being you did not give a disclaimer that you ARE an employee first...

Reminds me of that Anodizer website that just had NO credibility and was posting on various websites saying they had done all sorts of stuff but had no pictures OR references.

1. It is dishonest to create a second profile to be a "customer" for your company. It is also dishonest to provide a review of the company without specifying the disclaimer that you work there. People expect a degree of bias when one is attached or connected to an organization, and it helps to know that going into it.

The forum staff here are not paid by Special Ops, or by anyone else, to moderate and administer this forum. They volunteer to do so to help better the community. They can offer their opinions because it is simply that, their opinion. Nobody expects them to be collecting a paycheck depending on whether or not Special Ops sells goods.

(Come to think of it, I cannot recall the last time a staff member offered a review on any SO products, but that's getting off topic)

2. Check out the rules

Quote

12. You are allowed ONE (1) account. Multiple accounts are not allowed. If a second account is found it will be permanently suspended. Any and all infractions on the new account will be transfered to the original, plus the penalty for the dual account itself.


The rules are the rules are the rules, and that one isn't open for interpretation or a difference of opinion.

I am done talking about it.

For anyone else that cares, here are the facts. I do work for SPGP and I am also a customer of the site. What I ordered came as described and without any issues. I am not paid to write this and if you want to go to the website that is fine, if you don't that is OK too.
