Upgrades:
New vertical feed, new Barrel, new Reg, and a Drop.
Strengths: Nicely made but cheap price, I picked up mine new for $219. I have mine set at 10 bps in semi mode which is plenty fast for me. I have shot an easy 7000+ rounds and have had about 4 or 5 ball breaks during games. Now yes if you have it set at 16 bps+ and your faning the triger your going to bust more paint no revy is flawless. So simple to disassemble and clean, love it. Adustable trigger pull is nice. How anyone can compare this to other spyders is insane. Much better quality than your average spyder not that all spyders are cheap or anything but it is a couple steps up. For under $500 you can have a very nice reliable marker. I would recommend to any one looking to step up there play.
Weaknesses: The vertical feed and elbow that was just a bad idea from kingman, about a $30 fix though. It is a bit louder than other guns but that doesnt bother me I like it when they know who I am. I guess opening the grip up is a pain to adjust the settings but I never mess with it anyways. I have never had a problem with the bolt. There are plenty drops out there for it, has a standard 2 hole grip. The battery tray is not a problem for me at all. It can get heavy with full hopper and a large tank on the back but so do cockers.
Conclusion: With a few Minor upgrades you'll have a very reliable marker. The EM1 has not let me down yet. You simply can not beat it for the price. I have used plenty other markers to include cockers but I still like my EM1 better. Now I have never used an Angel or Excaliber but how can you compare $1100 plus against $220. Come On!
