Products Used:
Tippmann 98 Custom- nice gun but pain in the ass to take apart.
Tippmann A-5- I think some of the parts used on this gun are manufactured by some of the same manufacturers as tippmann.
GameFace Recon- Fast reliable gun.
Marker Setup: PCS US-5 Electronic Gun with 2 piece All american Barrel, Custom Mag Kit, PCS SAW Stock(very comfortable stock by the way), Halo Backman Hopper, and a remote line.
Kingman Spyder Xtra- don't buy this, just get an imagine, its way faster and you can get them on action village for 65.00 dollars sometimes.

Upgrades:
Definitely new barrel, maybe expansion chamber if you use co2 on gun, and a better bolt.
Strengths: Inexpensive
Decent rate of fire
Easy Trigger Swap
Weaknesses: Plastic Bolt
Stock barrel is pretty crappy
Review: All right now, I bought this gun about a month ago and I have gotten a lot of criticism from Tippmann owners already. Most have told me this gun sucks because it has no cyclone loader(and its not a tippmann). Who needs a cyclone loader if you buy a good electronic hopper, Cyclone loader can't be exchanged with other guns. The gun is very solid and hasn't given me any serious problems yet. However if you break a ball in the gun, your accuracy will suck ass until you open it up and clean it. The rate of fire is enough to scare most poeple into cover and a tippmann E-Grip only goes 2 balls per second faster.

The gun will accept any A-5 stock which is definitely a plus, and some A-5 magkits(as long as it can be bolted through the bottom of the gun, on the bolt that originally held the stock handle).

I played with this gun a weekend ago and most of the poeple we were playing with were sporting A-5s and 98s and such. It handled very well and I was hitting poeple from awesome distances with the full auto(I can't aim worth crap so I just unload on people when I get in range). Most of the Tippmann loyalists stop telling me crap about my gun after that game. In fact some them were asking me where to get one.

Conclusion: Overall this gun is great gun for the price. It has a decent rate of fire and can look pretty menacing with the right upgrades. If you want a higher rate of fire for a similar price range, you might want to look into the Kingman MR-2 Or the game face recon. Both of those guns have a milsim look with a good rate fire. Personally I love the way the US-5 looks and handles so I am giving it a 9 out of 10
