Neuro's Review

Sorry, but I have to say now what every reviewer of the CPS 2500 has said: for a CPS 2000 replacement, it's not too powerful. Granted, Larami could have gotten in huge liability suits, but still. A little more power wouldn't have hurt. The nozzle selection is great, it picks up right where the 2000 left off. One drawback: this thing is HEAVY. Did I mention it was heavy? I suppose that's why they included the classic large-CPS shoulder strap. Another thing that could have been better is that the plastic above the trigger has a little seam in it. This, unfortunately, has produced quite a number of small cuts on the up side of my thumb. This makes your next use even more agonizing on your poor little thumb. As a certain friend of mine would say, "Just battle scars." This gun can also have minor leaks where the nozzle meets the barrel, but this is a minor setback. This is just a really great gun.
