The factory barrel is better than most that come with a marker but leaves room for improvement.
MOST IMPORTANT: Lots of rechargable 9 volt batteries
Strengths: The marker is extremly light, No ball chopps , Very efficient
Weaknesses: The standard gravity feed hopper drains an alkaline battery after about 3-4 hours

Review: I live in the northern half of Illinois and play a lot of woods ball. I had always been reluctant to purchase an electromarker for fear of the abuse it would receive would cause failure. Also after years of reliablility from my Tippmanns I did not see a large advantage with electronic markers. I first saw a video of the SP-1 on Youtube and began trying to learn more about it. I decided to give it a try and have been thoroughly impressed. The SP-1 has many desireable features but the greatest are the gas efficiency and lack of chopped balls. The weight is not noticible when using a remote line. After I unveiled my new SP-1 two of my friends went out and got theirs. One is a lower serial number and the other is a newer one above 6000. The newer serial has the selectable fire modes while the others dont, but Smartparts will upgrade it if you ship it to them. Over all I think that this will become my primary marker and my A5 will be a backup.
Conclusion: Don't the price fool you this marker is great. Everyone thinks you get what you pay for but this is a great product.

"The standard gravity feed hopper drains an alkaline battery after about 3-4 hours". Umm, gravity feed hoppers don't need batteries...Or maybe I just misunderstood your answer..
