Strengths: Versatile, consistent, appearance, ease of use, easy maintenance. First Strike Compatible with kit.
Weaknesses: Small allen keys are easily damaged by the screws. Few Mods. No trigger mods.
Review: Cacophony's review pretty much sums it all in an excellent fashion, but I agree with FANCHER that it may be a better option to go with the basic model and buy the riser and red dot separately as well as any add-ons you may want.

I'd like to add, though, that I've found the tactical stock to be uncomfortable to use with the magnified scope even with the tri-rail riser, though using a low-profile mask helps tremendously. The longbow stock may be able to help with that as well, since it's got a curve that makes it lower. The marker is somewhat heavy, but by no means something that will wear you out from carrying it. If you're worried about that though, you can put a sling on it. I'm using a 3 point sling that's great in keeping weight off of your arms while you're not aiming, but it makes it awkward to shoot from my left side since I'm righ-handed.

The TACAMO ARC 200 round hopper has worked wonderfully so far, with no balls being chopped.

Great MilSim marker overall, have only tried it in speedball so far, so it's been somewhat awkward there in rifle mode, but great in pistol mode. Woodsball games coming up in a couple of weeks, so I'll update then.

The magnified scope with red/green illuminated reticle is very nice, but overkill with a paintball's accuracy, unless you're shooting the First Strike Rounds (conversion kit sold separately) and makes it somewhat harder and slower to acquire targets.
Conclusion: Excellent product quality so far, very enjoyable to own. Have played a few games with it and had no troubles that were caused by the marker itself, just some issues with my remote line which I'd set up incorrectly. Adding/removing its mods is easy, maintenance can be done very quickly with practice.
