Recommended
Upgrades:
ACI Rear Cocking Venturi Bolt (Lube this like gold)
ACI 6 Stage Exspansion Chamber
Armson 10" or 13" Barrel
ACI Repair Kit - You will need it!!
Strengths: Excellent Price
Looks
Easy to field strip (which is a good thing since you will be doing this all the time)
Excellent upgrades available
Great on CO2
Weaknesses: Chops Balls
Breaks Balls
Goes through o-rings like crazy
Without upgrades this gun is terrible as a stock unit
Buy good paint (other wise bring lots of cleaning gear)
Lousy velocity adjustment - would not set below 305fps

Conclusion: Here it is - If you do the following this is a good gun:

1. Buy a ACI Six Stage Exspansion Chamber
2. Buy a ACI Rear Cocking Venturi Bolt
3. Buy several Griffin Repair Kits
4. Buy a new barrel - Armson Pro-Series 10" or 13" is great
5. Cut the Striker Main Spring down two (2) coils and stretch it out to its original size, this will help with ball breaks and chops. This will also give you a full range on the velocity adjustment: 160-305 fps. The stock spring is too strong.
6. Be sure to check the ball detent spring to make sure it is seated properly.
7. Buy good paint.

Conclusion: This is not a good marker for someone who does not understand the internals of markers. I own three Griffins, each has its own problems. But after fine tuning each of them and understanding what each one needs, they can compete with any other marker.

Rating: As a stock unit - 5
With upgrades - 8

Treat this marker like gold and you will enjoy it. If you don't like fixing things then don't buy this marker.
Rating:
8 out of 10
