Upgrades:
Maybe a new barrel but the stock is pretty good. You might want an electric loader, although I have had no problems with out one
Strengths: Cheap, well balanced, hardly any kick
Weaknesses: Ugly, centre feed, lack of a real manual, loose battery
Review: I play woods ball and have always used mechanically markers sometimes I play stealthy and snipe at people some time I charge like mad all day so I wanted a marker to do both with.

I have never played with an electro before so I was really pleased with how quiet this gun was and how little recoil it had. After messing around with the trigger I got it to shoot pretty fast but to me this was not important I have beat players who have had tourney grade electros when playing with a pump, its not about speed its about accuracy.

As soon as I got it I gassed it up, I put some blu tack in by the battery to stop it rattleing and took it to my range I was using some pretty cheap rec paint to start off with and it was ok with it I put 400 rounds through it no breaks but then the battery that came with it died so I swapped that over (the new ones still going after 1000's of rounds) from about 30-40 ft i was placing 50 shots all within a few inches of each. I switched to some draxxus later and it got better. During the day me and my friends put well over 1000 rounds through it with no breaks.

It handles well and feels light, It balances well with an air tank on, you can easily shot it one handed.

so far the only problem is Im not getting many shots of an air can maybe 400 or 500 but I might have it set up wrong (any advice would be appreciated) The manual is rubbish just a little piece of paper with a tiny bit in english on it. Its quiet an ugly looking gun but I bought it to shot not to look at.

The hopper is stuck right in the middle so it balances well but would get in the way of a sight ( but sights are just for show in paintball) i wouldn't bother with aremote or a stock as it handles well any way. Not sure how durable it will be i doubt it will take the beatings my tippy has had but time will tell. The main reason I got this gun is its so cheap.

UPDATE

Having played with it for a few months and played hard its still going great still quiet and accurate. The only down side is that the battery runs out something Im not used to having alwasy played with mechanicals. Still its an awesome little marker. I have got it set up to HPA now and its a bit more efficent and my friend just bought one and his actually had a manual of sorts. It has taken a right beating and still has not been marked
Conclusion: A great all round marker

Dispute:
I'm sorry but I gotta dispute.

A lot of what you write is opinion, basing on looks, basing on what you think sights are for etc, opinions on aesthetics's don't have a place when reviewing something, plus red dot sights are more than just looks on a paintball gun for actual woods or scenario if you know what yer doing.

Most your review is pretty accurate, but it does come with a better manual now, it tells you how to set your HPA/CO2 settings in it, and stock it comes set for CO2. Go to www.smartparts.com and they actually have a video guide for setting CO2 or HPA, you will get a lot more efficiency out of it this way.

Oh ya i forgot to metion the dwell setting is very easy to set, just follow instructions, hold power button down while conecting battery, light blinks once for co2, if you want hpa , same thing but light blinks twice , real rocket science
