It seems to be a pretty good value. Have you been looking around for prices on other systems? The only thing that makes me leery about it is that I don't know any one that uses it. You could probably put one together for less. But thats just me,I enjoy tinkering around with stuff. Don't forget you still have to get a tank and co2 which will probably set you back another $100 ,depending on the size of the tank.
