Upgrades:
a fast hopper, but then again you need one for every high end
Strengths: Accuracy,
Price,
Simple Mechanics,
Simple electronics(easy board programming)
Weaknesses: The grips are rediculously heavy
Review: Well i looked on dangerous power's site and they were talkin up a storm about how good this marker is (as any company does), but for the price it felt like they were gonna take some short-cuts, so i looked at all the reviews here and in other places, and i deciced to get one,

The body: i personally like the old style, less milling look, instead of the intense milling on the threshold or F8 fusion, but that wont effect the score, just a personal preference
the stock feed neck is great imo, its just a little wide so some of my hoppers wont fit it, but thats fine. stock bolt is delrin so u never have to lube it, and it's easy to feild strip.
there also isnt many upgrades out but you dont really need any with this marker

the trigger: the trigger is amazing, it's easily adjusted, and you can make the pull very senitive, sensitive enough so you can blow on it and it will fire, also it works just like an ego's trigger, also the pull is very smooth, and it's very fast, the board is also easy to program unlike the bushmaster's. also the grips weight a good .3-.4 lbs, but that can be fixed with some plexiglass and a whetting stone

the barrel: its scary good! very good imo for a stock, but it's very picky about paint, if u use cheap, very old, it breaks, then again that happens with near every barrell
it's amazingly accurate tbh, nice bores size too(.691) i hit 3" diamiter targets in my bad yard from atleast 10 yards away within 2 shots

the mechanics: the fusion uses FASOR(forward air spring operated return), so there's only a bolt, a ram and a spring to take out to maintain it (unless you're getting leaks, or debri in the HPR and LPR), but even then those are easy to take apart and maintain

the ASA:
eh the ASA on the fusion has been leaking on me, and the flip switch feels kinda flimsy and weak, but eh, its good for a stock on/off asa

overal: this gun is SCARY good, it's comparable to the ego, infact the only difference i noticed is the weight and the mechanic, and maybe the barrel idk i used a pepperstix barrel kit with the ego
Conclusion: Like any true highend, it came out of the box near perfect, even though there is two minor faults this marker is ScaryGood
I'd give it an 8.5 because of the ASA,and the picky barrel but i cant so i'll round it to a 9

Paint breaking in the barrel is the barrel not gun.

Are you saying that each grip is .3 - .4 pounds, or both of them together?
