Recommended
Upgrades:
two extra mags for the gun if you're a rec/sceneario player, plus a drop forwrad tatical holster (get the Ronin), get some hogue grips, the basic 45 grip frames are not the best of comfort in my opinion.
Strengths: The gun is a good design, I've never had any problem with it and it's gotten me out of some rough spots. I like it's design, it's quiet, has a very unique style that gets a lot of notice among all the players (pro and novice rec players). The gun itself works well, smooth operation and reliable once you know how to operate it, a few skirmishes using just the sidearm would be the best advice to figure them out.
Weaknesses: Bad things... well let me start by saying the gun is a bit large, and a bit on the heavy side if you're a younger player, anyone under 5'5'' may have a little trouble with it. The gun also has a few kinks that need to be checked, for one if you lock and load the gun, unlatch the pusher for the rounds to be pushed into the breach and then try to play a game you realize quickly that after a few hours of running around a few rounds slip out, it takes a bit but they still slip out, just when you put the magazine on turn the powerfeed off so when you do use it all you need to do is turn the powerfeed and push the first round down with your pinky into the breach, once you pratice you can get this operation down to two seconds.
The other bad thing to mention is the grips, I didnt like the stock 45 grips on it so I got a different pair of Dye grips and with a little modification on the gun they fit like a dream.
Also, the gun has some trouble with it's use of the CO2 powerlets, mine only gets about 12 rounds on a full charge, which isn't the best for me so I just use my sidearm as a last ditch effort.
Conclusion: The gun has some drawbacks as well as it's perks, if you're using hte gun as your sidearm it works well and is worth the money, it has gotten me out of about six difficult situations that kept me in the game long enough to repair my spyder or reload, I need to buy an extra magazine though. Reloading takes a bit too long if you're in a tight spot, but for a last ditch effort it's worth it's weight in gold. I give it an eight mostly for it's lack of CO2 staying power, and a bit of it's weight, but other than that I really can't complain.
