Upgrades:
I would recommend an upgraded barrel. The 10" ported and honed stock is actually pretty decent, but a longer "overall better" barrel would be best for anything else. Also.....get a regulator. Its not needed, but makes a drasti improvement in accuracy. Get Dye Sticky grips, the plasic pnels broke on me already.
Strengths: This gun is excellent...where do I start?
It has a high rate of fire. I'm guessing around 9-10 balls per second if not faster, depending on how good your fingers are.
The bolt is O-ringless. This may be bad or good, I'm not sure. While there certainly is less matinence, it may wear faster with metal against metal. I'll let you know on that.
The vertical feed is better than powerfeed or angled feed. I love it. Even without a motorized hopper, you still should get 8 balls per second without chops.
Stock barrel is decient. Not an immediate upgrade needed, maybe later. I got one though, and sent back my PMI Razzor (wrong color.)
Top cocking I love. Either hand, I can cock it.
Double trigger is sweet. Felt like it was custon tuned. Virtually no play and certainly comfortable, with or without gloves. It has a little side to side play, but no biggie.
When you add CO2 to the gun, it makes a desinctive sound. Really cool and intimidating. Just a little side note there.
Colors are cool. Looks like a 400 dollar gun. Not hard to anodize, but this doesn't look like ti was shot out of some machine. Also note that the 'shark gill' milling is excellent.
Easy field strip. It takes me literally 20 seconds to: 1. pop the pin 2. pull bolt out and wipe it clean 3. put squeegee through barrel and bolt housing (even though you shouldn't) and take everything out of the barrel and chamber. (just make sure you pull everything out through the barrel; not bolt, so you don't screw it up with paint). I do that maybe once or twice for ever case of paint.
Doesn't break paint, even with stock barrel.
Price.
Foregrip does its job. No Co2 entered the gun. Even playing in 33 degree weather. The only time I had a problem was when the sun went down, and temps dropped to about 30 degrees even. The the wind picked up. This caused the gun to freeze, not because of liquid CO2, but because I was shooting very rapidly and the bolt kinda frooze to the metal sides. My fault.
Weaknesses: There's not too much to say here:

Grips suck. They broke on me already. By better ones and a barrel. These are basically necessary, but anything else is really optional and not really needed.
Stock barrel could have been longer. While some may like the 10 inch, I perfer longer barrels, hence the 16" I bought.
It is a little on the heavy side, which may bother some, but I like it. It gives it a solid feel, in my opinion.
Don't buy it if your going to try to sight with it. Vertical feed, top cocking, and sighting just don't mix very well.
Other than that, this is a great gun.
Conclusion: I'm writing this review as a addition to my other review, since I tested it longer and got more upgrades.
This gun is great. Just compare the good to the bad and you'll see why. It out performs anything comared to it. Much better feel than a Spyder Shutter and other equivalent guns.
Buy it if you feel, you won't be disappointed.
