Whatever you want on some guns you have to upgrade because an aspect about it suck on this one i found everything to work good so i havent a suggestion.
Strengths: Accurate
Faster than my 98c
Quick cleaning
Weaknesses: Cocking before you air up.
Button on the back could be pushed in a game
Review: I found my new gun very good for the price it arrived in about a week. I took it out of the box and every thing was intact though i was worried for a little bit cause the ups box had damp spots and a dent. A few days later i took it out to my shed and cocked it screwd my Co2 in and it worked fine ( i was using a remote so no liquid co2 could get in). then a few weeks later me and my friends put our money together and we all went down to nature of the game paintball and played down there. It preformed very well when i remembered the cock before you air up thing but when i didnt i just held the bolt back and fired a few shots and released while i was shooting and it worked fine. It was incredibly accurate compared to my 98c I was hitting hoppers that were sticking up even, wich was way better from what i am used to. i absolutley loved how fast i could walk the trigger since it was electro. It was a bit quieter than my old gun and much much more CO2 efficiant i mean so much more. I was getting 1, 2 and sometimes 3 people out in 3 on 3 games it was also a boost of confidence knowing when they might miss i was probably going to hit. It also had such a small profile that i was getting out by getting hit in the hopper and gogs much more often than getting hit in the gun (doesnt mean i got out often though!). I havent checked out the full auto and ramping modes yet except for while i was cleaning it after the games at my house with no air or paintballs in. It was very easy to field strip all i had to do was take out the air source ( Of course!) take off the barrel and hopper. pull out the pin slide the bolt out and squegee where the barrel goes rub a little oil on the bolt slide it back in with the hole pointing down put the bolt back in squegee the barrel ( The inside is very shiny!) and im done took less than five minutes compared to the possibly an hour with all of the things you can do wrong and have to go back for ( The quick release hopper thingy and the ball detent) and like 5 screws in the 98C. I havent cleaned the pneumatics and stuff yet cause i dont know how and i dont think you need to unless you get paint in here somehow.
Conclusion: It was a big step up from my 98C and was better stock than my 98C upgraded (I used to be like all of the other 98C users and be like i don't need no stinkin lectro my tippys reliable) The performance on and maintenance off of the field was great over all i give it an 8 cause of how complicated it is what with all the wires and pneumatics and because of the cock before you air up which i cant seem to remember for some reason ( Tippmann brainwashing conspiracy!!!!) But overall it is a very good marker for the price and performed very well with the stock settings (except velocity it came set at like i think the chrono guy said 120)
8 out of 10
