Experience:

Similar
Products Used:
2k2 WGP Cocker (With and without low pressure setup)
Multiple Spyders
Tested some Electro markers
Marker Setup: Diggers C/F MiniMag #0266 (Splashed Black with Blue (Not pastel green and I don't know why), Stock J&J Ceramic Barrel, 12v Revy, Benchy 2x Frame/Trigger.

Planned Upgrades: Intelliframe (Nickel Blade), Superbolt, BOA 10" Nickel, Chrome Body Rail / Gas-Thru Foregrip / ASA, ReTro Valve.
Recommended
Upgrades:
Trigger frame unless you like stock Mag triggers. Extra barrels, although they are harder to find.
Strengths: - The vertical feed works better than a standard feed, but there's not really a noticable difference when compared to powerfeed.

- Easily maintained. Easy to oil and can be dumped in water like other 68/Classic's and Mini's.

- Doesn't chop often.

- Quite quiet. Had some people comment on its "noise."

- It's a mag =] (I know that's biased but I love mags so I had to include that)
Weaknesses: - It's difficult to get barrels for it, although some companies do make centerfeed mag barrels, such as BOA (who make quality barrels might I add).

- I don't have the intelliframe yet, but it appears as though the expansion chamber it comes with will be in the way of the trigger frame.
Conclusion: It's a very good gun and I love it with all my heart. I even feel guilty when I shoot other guns ;-). I'd recommend it to anyone interested in 'Mags. I want to give it a 9.5 only because of the barrel issue, but I'll round it up (benefit of the doubt).
Rating:
10 out of 10

Why does this gun come with an expansion chamber if it's so bad to use CO2 on Mags? why not just put a gas-thru on there (it'd be cheaper to make, also)

because alot of people used Co2 when this gun first came out, and the expansion makes it work better with co2
