Strengths: Price
Electronic Trigger
Good Looks
Weaknesses: 3 way valve leak
Barrel threads
Feed Neck
Review: Price - Got mine from Action Village for $85.
Electronics - Trigger pull is much lighter than the Custom98.
Looks - It just looks mean.

Leak - There is a leak in the 3 way valve. When I poke the receiving line, there is a noticeable loud hiss. This was a reman. gun, so I don't expect it to be perfect. I'll throw a little Teflon tape and heat shrink at it and see if that fixes it.
Barrel threads - The barrel threads are nicked and look like they were cross threaded. Barrel will still go on, but I'm wary of damaging the threads. Again it's a Reman. gun, so my expectations weren't too high.
Feed Neck - The stock feed neck is useless if you have an agitated hopper like the Halo. Autococker Clamp feed necks are cheap, $32 online, but it's one more thing you have to buy.

Good gun for Woods/Rec Ball. The electronics can handle rec speed ball, though I wouldn't take this into a tourney with Proto Rails or Angels. I'm a fan of the tactical rails, although I have no idea what I'd put on it. A fore grip? Laser sight? The rails are aluminum and functional. Not plastic as it might seem in the pictures. They protect the 3 way valve hoses which leak right out of the box. It's an annoyance but doesn't affect the performance of the gun. Soon my OCD will kick in and I'll be tearing the gun apart to fix it. For the price, it can't be beat. A year ago, this gun listed for 300 dollars. I saw it online for 85, I just had to get one.
Conclusion: Yes-Recommended.
9 out of 10
