Products Used:

Recommended
Upgrades:
New barrel
HPA / nitro / compressed air (all the same thing, just using all the names)
Strengths: Awesome sweet spot on the trigger.
Old so now cheaper.
Easy to maintain.
Weaknesses: NEEDS compressed air tank, c02 will blow the o-rings in 2 seconds
Review: When i first got this gun a good long while ago when it was new, I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I had heard all the good reviews on it, so instead of getting a tippmann 98 custom like everyone says to get as a first gun, I got this for around $200.
BOY AM I GLAD!
This gun shoots nicely out of the box, and has SOME upgrades available for it.
It requires almost NO maintenance if you use compressed air. DON'T I REPEAT DON'T use c02 with this gun. You will destroy it and you'll be putting new o-rings in after every game....

AAAAANYWAY....
The gun shoots quite fast if you only fiddle around w/ the trigger for a few minutes, but if you mess around with it for a good half hour you will set the trigger SO PERFECTLY you will be able to shoot like 15 bps (thats a guess don't dispute this over that).
One upgrade you do need is a new barrel...the stock one is horrible...just horrible....

I have gone up against people with shockers, high end diablo's and bob longs and i am bearly if not never outgunned.
Conclusion: I recomend this product, if you can find it, as an any level gun.
I took it to my first tourney the other day and it help up perfectly(my team ended up w/ second place)
it's a good starter gun as it requires little maintenance, it's still good stock and because it's quite cheap now.

it's a good intermediate gun for the same reasons, and by now you will probably have faster fingers and be able use this gun to its maximum potential

also its a good gun for vets because you can upgrade it to shoot pretty fast.

buy it

i give it an 8. it would have been 9 if it ran well on c02 and a 10 if there were more upgrades out for it.
Rating:
8 out of 10
