Review: Continuing on the reliability thing. When you first get your Electra, there is an O-ring in the ASA on/off thing that you will never really find if you don't ask a gun tech. Unscrew the on off thing, grab a screwdriver and unscrew the bolt looking thing inside. There will be an O-ring there that you need to lube. If you don't lube it, your gun will leak faster than a prison break.

Maybe the grip is too close to the trigger frame for you?? It's just a preference but I dislike it.

I found that if you chrono too high for regular batteries, it eats up batteries like CRRAZY! If you don't get the Spyder 9.6 volt rechargeable batteries you will be really really really really annoyed with the marker.

Problems aside... (edit may 28 problems still)

The marker does have a clamping feedneck, which is convenient.
The marker had 3 firing modes. Semi-Auto, PSP Ramping, and Millennium Ramping. With an easy way to select through all of them.
The stock barrel is 11inches. You might want to get a longer one.
It's pretty light and it might not compete with the mini or higher end markers, but this NOT a high end marker anyway.

Downright pissed off with this. There are consistent leaks if you don't maintain it all the time. There's a leak in the reg and I may have to talk it apart to fix it. I also had a problem with power. The bolt required too much power and I had to get a new one installed that require less energy to use. I'd suggest getting something more reliable.

(edit May 29)
One of the screws in the reg is permanently jammed. I can't get into the gun to fix the leak
Conclusion: (Edited May 28, 2011)
Okay gun. I'm not writing a review until at least 6 months of use anymore.
My previous review was way off.
