don't mean to hijack your thread but i have some opinions and pics to share. as you all know i ordered an apache LED, well today is the day i have so looked forward to it arrived!! i slaped that bad boy on my tippy and headed out for some shooting! it outperformed all my expectations it had no trouble keeping up with the R\T (as you will see in the vid (if i can ever figure how the hell to get it posted) i was running low on co2 and i had a hard time sustaining realy rapid fire). i have only 2 concerns it was fairly noisy (this will take some getting used to) and if the hopper gets down to 20 or so balls the agitator spins so fast it "juggles" the last of the balls. these both are very minor problems and the good of the hopper GREATLY outweighs the bad

here are some pics of the LED model

with a custom pro right under it, you don't even notice the Halo is on.

Ya I was lying. You can hear the Halo B but only people in about 2-4 feet of you could probably hear it while firing. It is only acivated while shooting, so the gun should cancel it out to other players. Cda, my Custom Pro is loud compared to highend markers but it is quiter than many other Tippmann guns. This one guy, I think has his gun way to high of fps has a Tippmann that just roars everytime when he fires it. THumb down
