Weaknesses: First run of boards had problems, some cocker threaded barrels may not work
Review: I bought this gun right after christmas. I used it twice before I had to send it back to National for them to fix the faulty board. But that is expected with brand new guns. They have told me that they are currently working with their board manufacturer to fix all the boards before they send out another shipment. Other than that, some cocker barrels won't work because the threading has not been standardized for "Cocker" threading... Deadly Wind Fibur barrels, for example, won't work.
Conclusion: Wait a few weeks until they release them, then buy one, they are excellent... once the board is working (all should be in the next shipments)... it is a dream...

Please note the cocker threading on the gun is correct, it's just there are certain barrels that aren't quite within the tolerances for it.

Actually its worr game fault about the barrels, they never made specific measurement for there AC threads.
According to invert they tested lots of barrels, but were made with in the last year.

My old style freak didn't fit but i just sanded a bit and grease and it was good to go.

Dispute:
As has been said before, it is standard cocker threading. Just some barrel manufacturs are going on the loose side of the standard. It is the same as with the ion/icd feed neck threading. The specs say they are interchangable, but manufactors er on the loose side of the spec.
