Marker Setup: Basic XTS with Sheridan's add-on expansion chamber
a better barrel
a regulated gas supply
Strengths: There is something about the "in-line" design of the Tippmanns and the Sheridan XTS' that I find more aesthetically pleasing than the "stacked tube" design. The ease of maintenance afforded by the tilt-up receiver and the elegantly simple design makes the Sheridan XTS easy for the mechanically challenged paintball warrior to maintain.
Weaknesses: 1. This piece of crap breaks more balls than a newbie's backside.

2. There are very few upgrades available.

3. The factory upgrades from Sheridan are more expensive and not as effective as aftermarket equivalents.
Conclusion: The breaking paint is what burns my cookies the most. Even with the factory expansion chamber, if the temperature drops below 60 degrees I get snowflakes out of the barrel which makes me wonder if what I got for my $60 was a gas thru handle cleverly disguised as an expansion chamber. I bought a Lapco barrel and have tried "tougher" paintballs all to no avail. I'm going to hook my XTS up to a friends chronograph and HPA system to see if pressure spikes caused by liquid CO2 is the problem. In the meantime, I highly recommend that everyone else should get a Tippmann.

try an direct version of the Palmer Stabilizer or any other product that screws directly in the the bottom line inlet... one can also get a Vert adaptor for it... also this is a great high FPS marker but there is no paint (other than the old dusk by diablo) that can handle it... >300 FPS this marker rulz
