Upgrades:
A barrel for sure, oddly enough, the Apex barrel that I have for my 98 fits the Triupmh
A stock would be nice for woodsball, I couldn't find an aftermarket one, so I made one from a steel band
Strengths: lighter than other Tippmanns
Same Tippmann internals
the expansion chamber
well balanced
Weaknesses: Vertical feed
Its RED
No factory upgrades
Review: I picked this up for $50, just to have a spare. It wasn't used much to start with, just for the simple fact that I hate to put the 98 away. After a while, I purchased the Apex barrel for my 98, and discovered that it fit the Triumph as well, so I used it a little, and saw how much lighter it was than my 98. I took some ultra-flat spray paint to it, to make it blend better, and constructed a simple stock that attaches to the drop-foward, so that the gun would remain balanced while I used a remote. The Triumph functions nothing short of Tippmann perfection. I've only broken 1 or 2 balls the entire time that I've used it, which is impressive, but what isn't impressive is the job that it is to clean. I finally reached the point of taking the barrel off (as well as the tank and hopper, but that goes without saying) and turning the waterhose on it, water isn't going to damage anything in the XT, since there is nothing electronic in it.
Conclusion: I would recommend this to anyone who wanted to get the most for their money. This is perfect for someone who just wants to play now and then, and doesn't want a huge amount of money tied up in it, but also doesn't want to be out-gunned, or of course, for a spare

It tends to stand out in the woods. Its not fun when people tell you that they wouldn't have seen you if it weren't for the color of your gun

Turning the hose on the gun can corrode all of the internal parts, most notably the main spring.
