Upgrades:
If you insist upon shooting this gun, I would do a trigger job, polish the barrel, because this thing is cheaper than most barrels out there. I would probably polish the metal internals also.
Strengths: Well... it's cheap and plastic, so I guess you could modifiy it easy. If you like stingrays for tweaking, you may just enjoy this gun. I found absolutely no problem with accuracy and velocity consistancy, which is amazing due to the low price, lack of regulation or expansion chambers and so on. The right-hand feed is right-on if you enjoy playing with scopes. I would only use them for observation, however, as you can get massive tunnel vision using them to take people out. The connection pin problem should finally be gone.
Weaknesses: Side-cocking, slightly louder than rear or top-cocking. To be honest the cheap feel is the primary problem with the gun. I dont mind shooting plastic, heck I'm getting a talon to trick & put on my belt as a sidearm. But, THIS GUN FEELS LIKE JUNK!!!!
Conclusion: Performance wise the marauder is a fairly decent marker, despite the ridiculously cheap appearance. However, I would prefer a stingray as my polymer semiautomatic. The gun's feel is horrid. After testing this marker I am convinced that this gun is good for a backup semi to your Tippmann, since you wont need to use it. It's just not good unless you know a couple fun mods to make the feel better. However, until then, this gun will stay out of the repertoire. I'll give it a four, because this is not the worst gun ever, but it's one of the worst that's been in my hands.
