Recommended
Upgrades:
1 - Sight Rail (Explained below)
2 - Motorized hopper (Explained below)
Strengths: Minor issues with hopper attachment & ball feeding. Easily corrected.
Weaknesses: Hopper attachment movement causes ball chopping.
Conclusion: 1 - The hopper attachment available from I&I Sports works well with the exception that it tends to move forward with each shot. Some times this causes the attachment to stick. When this occurs balls stick between the bolt chamber and the hopper tube. Balls stuck in this position are likely to get chopped. Applying oil or grease to the bottom of the hopper attachment works well until the oil or grease thickens with dirt or metal particles from the gun frame & hopper. I purchased an elevated sight rail @ I&I sports & placed this directly in from of the hopper attachment. The sight rail fits on top of the Punisher due to the fact that the top of the gun has a rail that is basically the same dimension as a sight rail. With this sight rail directly in front of the hopper attachment movement will not occur & jamming / chopping balls is reduced.

2 - Revolution or other motorized hopper. I found that even with the addition of a sight rail (or other object to restrict hopper attachment movement) the gun would occasionally chop a ball. Investigation determined that this was happening only when I shoot rapidly (8-10 rounds per second). Balls would not drop into the bolt chamber fast enough. Adding a motorized hopper corrected this issue. I recommend a 12v Revolution. The 9v will probably work as well. The 12v will allow for faster cycle rates. Note: the 9v & 12v Revolution use the same logic (circuit) board & servo. The 9v has a plug in the battery compartment with prevents a second battery. The 9v is also missing a second battery connector. Anyone with basic electronic know how can solder a second battery terminal in place & turn the 9v into a 12v. Note that the 9v has only 2 rudders & the 12v has 4. I use a converted 9v with 2 rudders and find that it works perfectly. Nice thing is that you can buy a 9v for $40 & spend $2 on the parts to make it a 12v! The 12v is $55-$60...

I still rate this gun a 10... These are very minor issues and modifications that anyone can accomplish.
