Recommended
Upgrades:
Low Profile Mask if you are using iron sights, or you will never get close enough to use them.
Mags lots of em!
If you are going to do the hopper mag thing get a motorized hopper and if I need to tell you that dont buy this gun.
Elevated sight rail and a red dot sight is very nice but the iron sights are fine.
Definetly get the trigger job done
Strengths: Support from ATS, Low profile, Intimidatingly loud, light, no ball break, Extremley accurate, Feels good.
Weaknesses: Mechanical mantinance not for all, slow semi mode, Low profile mask required for iron sights.
Review: Fallout 11 covered a lot and I will recommend reading his full review, I'lll just mention a few things that he didn't, and repeat some as well :)

Yes, definetly not for speedball.

The guide plates last longer than AT says as long as you take proper care. Do not ever! fire the gun without a magazine in it (sure way to snap em, Like dry firing a bow) I am only on my second guide plate and have had a great deal of paint slinging time.

I do however encourage you to use an empty magazine to fire air at enemy players as they will not know the differance between you actually firing air or balls due to the intimidating sound, don't overdo it and let em catch on :) I do this to save ammo as I only carry 5x25 rounds per game.

You can insert a mag, press the cycle button to chamber one, then add one to the mag for that (1 on the chamber effect)

That can also back fire, make sure you only have 1 ball in there it took me a while to figure out that I broke balls cause I kept double chambering. To fix this I simply don't use the cycle button I just use the trigger, Unless I really feel like looking elite and want that cocking effect to be seen.

Pressurize your gun without a mag then insert one. otherwise the Cog (the claw thingy that rotates the conveyor belt in the mag can mis align.

I stress the mask issue!!! when I first got my AT-4 I had to immediatley go buy a mask that let me get close enough to use the iron sights, I got a Proteus and it works fine.

The questions at the field.....Oh the questions, at first its nice, but after a few years it does get annoying. The + side is you can always tell a rental guy what to do and they listen :)

My favorite thing about the gun is having no hopper, all the noob players are just scared of you and all the elites arent looking for you correctly.

Conclusion: I rate this gun 10 out of 10 assuming you arent playing speedball.
Not for people who don't take care of things.
