Upgrades:
Needs a WAY better barrel, double trigger
Strengths: Good for beginners
Weaknesses: Overall a terrible gun
Review: Most fields rent this gun to beginners, and it's not bad for that purpose, but if you play more than once a month, invest in a decent marker. This gun has terible acuracy (shots landed almost 3 ft apart) and even worse range (wouldn't even reach midway on the field when I was arcing it). Needs a better barrel, any barrel besides the little 5' stock one, and the single finger trigger prevents from getting quick shots off do to the hard pull. I've only played with this gun twice, when I first started playing paintball, and just recently when my autococker was messin up. The difference between a beginner using it, and an experienced player using it is huge. Beginner's will find the gun marginally decent, but as I said, experienced players will generally hate it.
Conclusion: Good to rent, bad to own.
Rating:
5 out of 10

Expereienced players know that range is identical in all similarly chronoed guns. Sans flatline/apex, of course.

Accuracy is bad? Then buy a new barrel. People are capable of that.

No stock barrel in a cheap gun like this is going to be good.

"Weakness: Overall a terrible gun"

With absolutely nothing to back up this comment other than the stock barrel needs upgrading (true) and bad range (false), take this review for what it's worth. Which is to say, biased, inaccurate, void of details and generally a waste of time.

Oh and if you are going to bother reviewing a gun, try doing it with one that is properly maintained, chronographed and in good working condition. Using a rental in questionable condition is like going to the junkyard to do a review on automobiles.

Dispute:
U obviously do not own this gun. I agree that the stock barrel is absolute crap but what can u expect from a $120 gun. Spend 40 on a teardrop barrel and this is a great gun. It is by far the most reliable gun on the market, will last forever if well kept, and if you never open it to lube or clean it it will still last a long time. With a few upgrades such as response trigger, expansion chamber, and teardrop barrel this gun is just as good as many high end guns, at half the price and 10x the reliability. The M98 Custom also has about 30 other upgrades so you can customize it to your needs as you get better. The people who bash this gun don't own one or are jealous that they payed 3 times as much for a gun that preforms the same. Just read the rest of the reviews and you will see. I have never heard of a M98 custom being unreliable.
