Upgrades:
This is really your personal preference. I've decided to make mine a SIM-16 with the A2 handguard and sniper barrel. There are MANY different looks you can acquire with this marker. Refer to Ariakon's forum for pics. A sling and remote are probably a wise choice.
Strengths: Accuracy, durability, appearance, upgrades.
Weaknesses: It's a bit heavy, especially with several upgrades.
Review: I decided to wait several months to write a review on this marker to make sure I got a good feel for what it can do. After several months I am still as high on this marker as the day I got it. This marker can't be beat when it comes to woodsball. It's accuracy is as good or better than a 98C or A-5 but won't shoot as far as a flatlined 98C or A-5(nothing does). As far as durability goes, paintball markers can't be more durable than this. I've used it in rough mountainous terrain several times and it has made it through unscathed every time. The appearance is far superior to any upgraded Tippmann and is better looking than the WG or WS markers in my opinion. There are an endless amount of upgrades that you could use for this marker so I won't go into that much here but I will say that the sniper barrel is a nice upgrade. It'll give you a tad bit more accuracy and I have not noticed a drop in distance. It gives the marker a really nice sniper rifle look with the short M-4 style handguard or you can get the A1 or A2 handguard for a more classic look. The marker is pretty heavy so a sling is probably a good idea. I also use a bipod which helps a lot for you players who lie down a lot on the field. A remote with slide check is a must because adding the weight of a tank to this marker would be a mistake if you're going to be playing for several hours. Also, the Qloader looks pretty cool when mounted from the ASA and running the pods underneath the handguard. It gives it an M203 kind of look.
Conclusion: Overall, it doesn't get any better than this marker for woodsball. There's even electro trigs for you speedball/woodsball players. If you're one that likes to add realism to the sport of paintball, go out and get this marker. You won't be disappointed.

Well i have to say you should upgrade because i have the SIM-15 and i agree that its hot right out of the box to but who cares i mean its a great gun i have nothing bad to say about this gun everytime i bring it over my friends house they always want to hold it or want to shoot it some wont even play with me because i have it so if u want to freak out some one pull that bad boy out and buy it because its worth it.
