Products Used:
None a significant use of another electro: shot borrowed Angels, Bushy (one of the oldest), and a Shocker.
Marker Setup: MacDev LPR, Preset 3000 CI, Macroline.
Recommended
Upgrades:
The MacDev LPR has been good to me, but I've heard of some of them malfunctioning. They are out of the market now. The barrel is very loud, get another if that is important to you (I do not care that much, and accuracy is not that bad). Get a good aftermarket regulator; stock one is difficult to adjust properly.
Strengths: First, it is dead cheap: got a 2.2 (most recent version) for $400. It is very fast, and the trigger is a charm - adjusted mine to a bit more than 1 mm. Looks are nice, but that is entirely subjective. It is quite accurate with the right paint, and the stock barrel is not bad at all, although loud.
Weaknesses: Company went the way of the Dodo... no customer service whatsoever. Second, it requires an elaborate setup, and does not come with tools. Now, I am an engineer and used to work with tools. IF you have a mechanical inclination, you won't suffer that much. Otherwise, if you have trouble oiling and setting up a blowback, do not get this gun. You will just wreck it, since it comes unset and unlubed, and the pressure adjustment can be an experience to try the soul if not done adequately.
Conclusion: I can't reccomend this gun for a begginer or someone without mechanical inclination. So far, mine has malfunctioned a couple of times, but nothing that I could not fix - both times for minor but irksome leaks. I am glad I got mine - a good electro with an extremely good trigger for $400 is not bad.

There have been comparisons between this gun and an Angel... My opinion is that this gun is not nearly as reliable, smooth-operating, and good looking as the Angel. However, for 1/4 of the cost of one is not bad. If you are on a tight budget but want an electro, you aren't mystified with Allens, Regulators, and mechanical work, do give some tought to this gun. It takes work, and if you screw big time then it is bye-bye, but most of the parts can be obtained thru other manufacturers (i.e. Smart Parts Solenoid gaskets). Since I live in Mexico and sending the gun to the US=forget your gun (customs), I have had to do all service on the marker so for me is not such a big issue, and I'm happy with it.

One final thought: this is not a gun to tinker with once it is set properly.
So, in conclusion, this gun has many "ifs", but if you fulfill them then it is a very good option.
