Upgrades:
I recommend getting an HPA tank for this marker. Get either a remote line or use their in barrel air systems.
Strengths: The accuracy (with HPA), the weight are the key strengths.
Weaknesses: The "break in period" is the only weakness that I see from this marker.
Review: I first purchased this marker because I heard all good reviews about the Gen6 and I liked the look of the marker. I decided to purchase it (ended up being about $700 Canadian after tax and shipping). At first RAP4 sent me the wrong spring. I soon learned that there are 2 easy fixes and 1 not so much. The not so easy fix would be to go call RAP4 and tell them they sent me the wrong spring. The easy fixes were to cut the spring and to get Spyder springs and load it into the weapon. I did both and both fixes worked perfectly. After I had gotten the weapon and fixed the spring issue (this was only an issue because it shot WAY too fast for any field that I went to) I found out that there was another problem. This problem was that there was alot of chopping going on whenever I fired the marker. I had help from a great technician at a paintball field that was more than willing to go out of his way to help me. I found out that you need to unscrew the ball dentents (there are 2) just enough so that the ball can slide past with a touch of the finger but wont move if I shake the marker or anythign like that. Once this issue is fixed the weapon works perfectly. Another small issue i had was with the handguards but all you need to do is tighten a screw to make it more secure. The "break in period" is just fixing the ball detents and making sure the spring is working to the right speed. I had one other issue but I found out that I was just unlucky because I got my marker before RAP4 fixed this. My trigger stays back after being fired. But RAP4 was more than happy to send a replacement part for free. I don't consider this an issue worth worrying about unless you got your marker around the same time I did.
Conclusion: I reccomend this product for anyone that wants a realistic feel when they paintball. This is a great product once you get past the "break in" period (few days at most). Ive been using it for 6+ months now (got it in January) and its been wonderful. Very accurate, very sturdy and very reliable. Haven't had any problems with it since. It's amazing for use outdoors and it is a lot lighter than I would've expected since most of it is made from metal. I love the product and I don't plan on changing.
