Review: LCD Display:
Its a little hard to see in the daylight but it is nice to have. It shows you what you have your shot cap at I.e. 14-21 BPS. It also has a game timer and a shot counter.

Looks and Feel:
The gun looks really nice and it feels very comfortable in my hands, except for the cheap plastic grip which I replaced. I have held some of my friends higher end guns and the gas-thru being so close to the trigger is really uncomfortable for me, therefore I like the more spread out style. It has a little kick and is a little heavy but those are small prices to pay for such a cheap nice electro.

Accuracy:
The stock barrel on this gun is alright but really needs to be replaced. With my 14" J&J Ceramic Barrel it should perform much better, but I am still yet to find out.

Price:
The Mongoose 2 Reincarnation is a good gun for its price. The older reviews on this page talk about it costing about $189 but I got mine for about $119 off of Ebay.

Trigger Switch:
The trigger switch is particularly heavy and supposedly about a 250g. It makes walking the trigger difficult but can be solved by buying a 50g switch for about $5.00 depending where you look.

Chops:
It isn't that bad but I have had a few chops and ball breaks. Maybe 1 chop every hopper load or two.

Upgrading:
The largest disappointment of this gun was the lack and difficulty of upgrading it. It takes spyder parts and will accept spyder barrels without any modding. The dropforward is annoying because if you want to replace the part where you plug your tank into you have to either get a new dropforward altogether or go online to actionvillage.com and get a special converter, because the plugs don't fit the stock drop. It is just generally difficult to find compatible parts and it doesn't seem as though many grips fit it without some sort of modification.
Conclusion: Definitely good for beginners. It looks and feels great, while being a tad on the heavy side. It is accurate and really well priced for an electro, but does chop a little. It really does need a new switch and it greatest weakness is upgradability. One other thing is that when you are running out of air the gun does not re-cock all the way so beware of that. All in all a good gun.
