Weaknesses: Heavy
Too bulky for speedball
Review: Pros:

Bang for the buck! I found mine at $169 and it rivals much more expensive markers.

This is primarily a scenario or woodsball marker and can withstand incredible abuse requiring minimal maintenance.

Ready to use right out of the box.

Very accurate & incredibly easy to change modes: off, semi, 3 burst & full auto (no complicated trigger settings but does not have ramping)

However it is heavy. A sling doesn't help much as it becomes too cumbersome to change firing sides with the stock, but after some sore arms you get used to it.

Side loading keeps line of sight clear.

Cons:

If you use an electronic loader than a stiffer Ball detent from a Bob Long timmy is a must so as to avoid double feeds ($3) This is well covered in most forums.

As with many electronic loaders their weight in rough scenario play can easily crack most elbows so an Atomic Elbow from Allen Paintball Products is essential.

The rechargeable battery makes the hand grips not adhere to the handle as closely which can make cleaning post game a bit of a task.

Conclusion: bang for the buck!

rarely have I seen a marker which is so easy to use right out of the box needing minimal maintenance or upgrades, offering such speed 20 to 25bps at such a low cost.
