Experience:

Products Used:
2001 WGP Vert. feed Autococker (Friend let me use a couple of times.)
Marker Setup: CCM Series 5, Ricochet AK, St!ffi Switch barrel kit (with CCM control bores), SystemX 68/3000, CP Dovetail and On/Off.
Recommended
Upgrades:
Barrel kits are a good idea for most Autocockers (or so I'm told). In the right hands it's probably fast enough to warrant an electronic hopper (I use a Ricochet AK, but I doubt I'm that fast yet). Other than air (CO2 is a BAD idea) and an air source adapter it's pretty nice right out of the box.
Strengths: Fast for a mechanical marker.
Delrin Bolt.
Nice warranty.
Great bang for the buck.
Weaknesses: Grips and frame could be more comfortable.
A factory air source adapter would be nice.
Review: I had to wait WAY too long to get my grubby little fingers on one of these. It's really just a well put together Autococker with some nice accesories. The one I bought is a 2004 which means it has an adjustable front reg and CCM barrel instead of the smart-parts one (remember kids... smart parts pattented EVERYTHING, so now we all must quake before their mighty army of lawyers... sorry, the AKA thing really burned me so I take snipes at SP when I can.) With a barrel kit on it the shot grouping is far superior to my previous marker (a spyder imagine with a Dye Boomstick, what a waste of a good barrel). You get alot for what you spend, but you still spend nearly $500 for the 2004, that's alot of money for someone used to $150 spyders, but the performance is worth it if you're gonna play often. My only complaint is the grip, which can downright uncomfortable for wusses with soft little girl hands such as myself.
Conclusion: Odds are if you're considering one you don't need a review to tell you which way to go. Most of the folks I know who are buying these know exactly what they're getting into. That having been said, I love mine and would buy it again given half a chance. Who needs those fancy ultra fast electros anyway... Given that I see it as the best marker in its price range it gets a ten, that by no means makes it as good as markers costing more.
