Strengths: Whats good? Lets see Out of the box you hold a gun that performs like a swiss watch. No upgrades are needed barrel or otherwise. If CO2 is used though use a remote or an antisiphon inline reg. It is select fire and in full auto will spill out arount 13 rounds per second. On top of this it has accuracy I have seen in no other gun. 25 rounds put in a 5 inch grouping at 20 yards in full auto firing in 3 round bursts. Not Bad. Plus you have a gun that gets looks from everyone on the field. Literally everyone from angel users to renters they all want to know what the heck it is. Couple all that with it being under $500.
Weaknesses: I didn't find anything wrong with this gun that I didn't do to it myself. I bought it used and without a manual. BIG MISTAKE! This gun is not for the non mechancily inclined. It requires regular teardowns and specific greasings. Also you can't use cheap paint in it. RPS Premium and marbalizer work the best. As I said in the pros this gun is a precision watch and as such timing is it's heart. Irregularities in cheap paint, dirt, poor maintance, or even not following the gas up preceedures will make for a short day on the field. Oh forget field teardowns. You need a clean area, about an hours time, and several tools for it.
Conclusion: The at-85 was the gun for me once if got the info to maintain it. I use it every week and love. I love out shooting, I love the intimidation, and I love the looks (both of the gun and from people seeing it). But I do not recommend this gun to anyone not willing to put the time into maintaining it. Once the specific proceedures for gassing and cleaning are gotten used to they become 2nd nature. One other thing to note This gun is LOUD. Go somewhere else if you want a quiet sneaky gun. That only adds to my love of it though. There is nothing like the looks of fear I get when I open her up ond the painting starts. This is a wonderful gun though and I heartily recommend it to anyone looking for something unique but are willing to put the effort into learning it inside and out.
