Upgrades:
springs I got shoctech springs in mine. expansion chamber. you also need to get a new ASA because there is no space for expansion chamber off the front. but for now the remote line serves that purpose. clean it and re lube it and loctite all screws prior to first shot. stock barrel can be used as a splint if you break your arm.
Strengths: Light w/out tank, new barrel rocks, hasn't chopped yet
Weaknesses: No opening for expansion chamber
Stock barrel is just a metal tube.
Review: I got this gun and put it inside a cheap G36C airsoft body to use in mil sim games, and if peoples reactions are any indicator its pretty sick. a new barrel is a must, as with most markers in this price bracket you gotta add things to it or you won't be satisfied. I tried to do a paint to barrel matchup w/ the stock barrel and the ball (draxxus midnight) rolled an inch into the barrel and is now stuck. I am too lazy to pop it to take it out, and it won't blow out. the first thing you are gonna notice is this red stuff that is all over the freakin place on the inside of this marker and most of the packaging ? I thinks its lube but it could have been rust mixed with lube either way its gone now and it doesn't seem to affect the marker. I use gold cup lube. I also put a shocktech spring in it and tossed the stock spring. I will eventually get a new ASA so I can attach an expansion chamber as well as get a new valve and cup seal assembly just cause I don't trust the stock valve and cupseal.
Conclusion: all in all a great starter marker with a new barrel and springs. don't forget to locktite every screw in this marker and it would be a good idea to put a string on the cotter pin that holds in the bolt and striker assembly together just incase it may fall out. I would also like to get a new trigger cause the trigger itself is plastic, and chrome (not a good combo) and it doesn't accept any choices for new grips. a pretty solid marker and once again it is really light, you won't get tired carrying this.
