depends, i play alot and in tournaments so i upgraded to elctronic. u really should get new grips and the stock barrel shoots just as wel as any other
the stock barrel is amazing it shoots like a DYE and any other top notch barrel. It also is very easy to clean and maintain. the price is very cheap and but the quality and performance is just as good or better than any other semi auto gun out there.
somtimes the CO2 will make the gun recock. but it is no big deal, I really havent had anything to regret about buying this marker.
This gun is great for any level of play from beginner to pro. If u want a great gun for a great price, GO FOR THIS GUN
