New Barrel
Strengths: Solid
Durable
Rugged
Reliable
Weaknesses: Not many upgrades
Loud
Long sloppy trigger pull
Takes some skill to set velocity
Review: Pros:

Reliable
Out of production (Means I can sell mine for a ton if I wanted)
Delrin Bolt
Semi-decent stock barrel
Anodizing is hard to scratch
Small so it's easy to keep tight with
Low maintenance
Dual bottle adapter
Somewhat light
Easily suited for speedball and rec
Aside from the delrin bolt, all internals are metal
Venturi bolt

Cons:

Loud
You need to plug the asa not used
As said before, crappy trigger pull makes it impossible to shoot fast
The only real upgrades you can get for it now is a new barrel and if you're lucky a new trigger frame
Small blowback problems
Unless the velocity is set at perfect level the range kinda sucks
The foamey stuff on the barrel comes off easily
Taking it apart is a pain in the arse
Slow
Unlike most guns, tuning it is kind of annoying because of all the ways you're able to. There is a recock screw and a velocity screw and they need to be set with the same amount of tension to work right.
Conclusion: Well in the end this gun isn't much different from a Tippmann. It's probably better suited for rec than speedball and most people have no idea how reliable they are. If you keep the velocity set at a good range and kept it lubed up this gun will function MUCH more smoothly. It is similar to a Tippmann but you still need to take care of it. If you come across one and can get it for a decent price I HIGHLY suggest you buy it. You won't be disapointed in its reliability. Would make the perfect backup gun.
