Default CPS 1200 knockoff or real?

So I was looking around on ebay and found this is this a 1200 clone or what. Could it be as good as the original? http://cgi.ebay.ca/Aqua-Blaster-Wate...item2c53fce789

It's highly unlikely that it performs anywhere near as well, as with most knockoffs.

Also, that's a 1500.

It's a large pressurised reservoir blaster. Notice the reservoir has no cap - it'll be a screw-in bottle type. Also notice the look of the trigger - it's likely a pinch trigger, which in turn means the internal tubing is narrow and performance limited.

There is only one known knockoff that's worth it's weight; the Super Shooter 2000 is an almost exact replica of the CPS 1000. However, it's availability is questionable at best and probably never became a common replica due to manufacturing costs.

Where can you get a Super Shooter 2000?

I saw one, but it was a couple of years back. Most people have probably thrown their's away by now.
