Upgrades:
~Q-loader works wonderfully with the warp left or right configuration. I bought mine with the warp left intending to use the Q.
~Bob Long cam on/off ASA is also a great product. It vents the excess air when you turn it off and looks nice too!
~Geurrilla Air tank with high pressure tuned Myth reg is a perfect fit for the gun. 900psi output keeps the ULT snappy on the Tac-One. This is one of the few regs out there that can be set to 900psi, but you have to special order it that way from Geurrilla Air.
Strengths: +Quality
+No batteries
+Easy to maintain
+Quiet
+No kick
+Tons of upgrades
Weaknesses: -Cost
-Setup is not super easy
-Only uses HPA or Nitro
-Poor efficiency
Review: This is the BEST mechanical marker available bar none for the following reasons:
+No batteries and it shoots like an electro semi-auto marker. The feel and the response are crisp and consistent.
+Won't chop paint when it's properly tuned. You can't chop paint no matter how hard you try.
+Very easy to maintain! I mean super easy!! One thumb-screw and you can get all the internals out (you'll never have to do this in the field anyway cause mags are so reliable).
+Quiet. This marker even with the stock barrel is very quiet compared to Tippmans and Spyders. With a Deadlywind Fibur barrel it's almost sniper-quiet. (This is my next planned upgrade with the steel Smart Parts inserts)
+No kick. Tippmans and Spyders are known for having a noticeable kick when fired.
+Upgrades. The sky's the limit here. Even though mags have slipped out of the spotlight in the past few decades (yes, they have been around that long) they still have a devoted following of modders and aftermarket parts manufacturers. Pro Team Products is one good example of this. They are making a new custom body for the automag this year called the 2009 MicroMag.

-Cost. You get what you pay for.
-Setup. This is a high-end custom marker and you should know that when you buy it. You need to get air lines and have a plan for how you will set it up. Tuning the level 10 bolt can be tricky, but there are great videos and how-to documents to help you with this. Also, once you get the marker tuned properly, you almost never have to adjust it again.
-Only uses HPA or Nitro. This is not really a weakness since you should not be using CO2 with a high end gun anyway...
-Not great air efficiency. This marker is not the most efficient out there. Plan to have a backup air tank for a long day of paintball or be near a place that can refill.


Last weekend I went out to do some good old-fashoined woodsball used some leftover paint from the previous year. It was pretty dimpled and sweaty, but never had a break and got several clean kills on the day! Mission accomplished.
Conclusion: Love it! You should buy it if you want the best quality mechanical marker available.
