Upgrades:
You can't buy anything that makes it shoot any better than it does and in reality anyone who has bought this gun has done so because it looks bad ass so spend your money converting it to metal parts and put a good scope on it. That doesn't mean a cheap piece of crap K-mart special, buy the real thing. It's worth it.
Strengths: Accuracy - Up to around 175 ft.
Realism - As I stated before, bad ass.
Weaknesses: Bad cocking spring out of box.
Air lines were loose and leaking.
Review: I'll use this review to go over the strengths and weaknesses stated above.
Strengths:
1. Don't believe the websites claim of accuracy to 300 ft. These are milsim training guns guys, to be accurate to 300 ft you would have to crony the gun up as high as it goes. Read the small print on the site. They state that. With a good scope on this gun like the 4 x 32 I have on mine, you could hit a quarter at 40 ft and a person at around 175 ft. That's about as good as a paintball gun is going to get.
2. This is easily the coolest and most realistic looking paintball gun I have ever seen. I get more attention with this gun than with my angel. Most of the companies upgrades for the gun just make it look even meaner and are worth the money.

Weaknesses:
1. Most of the complaints you will see on the site are that the gun doesn't work out of the box. Well guess what, mine didn't either. I took the gun apart in about 3 minutes, called RAP's tech support who picked up on the second ring and had it fixed and back together in about 15 minutes. The problem is the cocking spring. They tend to about 1/4 th of a inch to long. That makes the either not shoot or shoot automatic when you pull the trigger. It is also what make's the gun sound like it is leaking air from the inside. I look out my snips and was good to go.
2. I hate to even complain about this one but over half of the screws and air fittings were loose upon arrival. They claim to check each gun right before it is shipped and it isn't. The only gun i want to have to work on out of the box is a cocker.
Conclusion: For what you get for the money this gun is definetily worth the hassel of having to make it work. It is very accurate and very cool looking. The realism of playing with it isn't lost on anyone who has ever hunted or been in the military. It makes you want to hunker down or buy a guille suit. I would recommend it very highly. I would have given it a 10 if it had worked out of the box without modification.
