How Does the 180R Compare to the CS3?
The 180R comes close to matching the CS3's specs on paper and is 90% of the way there to a CS3. However, there are a few missing features that would make it as robust as the CS3. It's important to note that the 180R is a mid-tier marker at a mid-tier price point, while the CS3 is a professional-level paintball marker, and the pricing reflects that. However, for the price point, the 180R is sure to give the CS3 a run for its money.
