Upgrades:
The first thing I would get for this gun would be a new on/off and regulator. I was not pleased with its performance out of the box in terms of consistency. It could just be me though. The only other thing this gun really needs is a new triger assembly. On mine out of the box it was incredibly stiff. Other than that, the gun is pretty good as is
Strengths: Excellent entry level autococker. easily upgraded. Inexpensive.
Weaknesses: The review will list the weaknesses
Review: I bought this gun a few months ago and have been nothing but pleased with it. First however I want to get a few of the things I am not happy with off my chest before going on a rant as to why people should buy this gun. The only thing I didnt like about this gun out of the box was the consistency from shot to shot (easily changed), the pull of the trigger(easily changed). Now, the one thing that you are stuck with on this gun is the bolt. Autococker bolts will not fit. They are just too long. Changing the back block will not help this either. This is the only problem I have with the gun. It is a good delrin bolt though, but still, upgrades are nice. Other than that I have used this gun on many occasions and have only had to adjust the FPS twice I believe after getting it timed. My set up is incredibly accurate and very consistent. Out of about 12,000 balls I have only chopped maybe 4 or 5, which were all my fault. The gun is easily upgraded to an E trigger, and is already drilled for eyes which is really nice. I also like how the feeder neck comes with an adjustor to keep your hopper locked on.
Conclusion: I heavily recomend this producto to anyone who wants to get autococker quality at an inexpensive price. I do feel however that once you get this gun you will need to make a few upgrades, Reg, on/off, drop forward, and trigger which will cost maybe 200 on E-bay. And with those upgrades you have a very formidable gun. I am going to give it a 9 because of the very stiff trigger, inablity to accept various bolts, and poor out of the box regulator. On a side note, the quality of the gun is a ten I feel, but I just dislike the stiff trigger and regulator. For many people I am sure the trigger and reg is just fine.
