Upgrades:
you can email the company and they will send you a barrel adapter so u can put a spyder threaded barrel on it
Strengths: well the only good thing i can think about this gun is i bought it off a friend for 25$ when i was just starting paintball and my parents wouldnt let me spend much money. it did get me into the sport and i was stuck with it for a long time so i had just about every u can think of with it. i played 2 turneys with it (not recomended) .
great customer servace i do admit god knows how many replacement parts they sent me for free
it tought me how to fix any blow back made like (spyders, piranahas, core sharks, draguns, exct. in no time.
Weaknesses: WELL LETS SEE SO MUCH, SO LIL SPACE...............
1.well when it was hot outside i couldnt get the FPS under 344 fps
2.i broke the plastic trigger frame in half screwing a tank onto it
3.new from the store my friend sayed he payed 130$ thats about 105$ more than its worth
4.the almost cool ano-paint job came off the barrel and it was just black
5 stock barrel is not accurate by any means it looks like some one took just 100 grit sand paper in there to smooth it
6.it would not stay togather at all it would vibrate apart like the cocking knob would fall off and the grip frame so on...
7.it had a terrable kick i mean i think my .22 has less kick than that gun
8.trigger pull was long and hard couldnt shoot fast if u had to
9.after every day playing it developed a new leak somewhere
10. it has horrible blow back it acually blew the balls back up into my hopper ( to fix this i drilled about 25 holes in my feed tube-worked nicely-good tip-for all of you with this gun)
11.when you choped inside the gun it would leak paint some how and get into the bolt and you would have to totaly feild strip the gun (witch took about 15 min when i was good at it) and clean every part
12.one day i was playing and the valve acually slid forward makeing it impossible to shoot over 30 fps
13.people when i got a new spyder barrel would call it the joker gun cause it made it LONG and it was only a 14" barrel.
14.no drops will fit it not even spyder drops it has a diffrent drop pattern than any other gun made
15.no other parts for ANY GUN fit it besides a spyder barrel when u get the adapter
16.when you do break a part of it (witch is often) you have to wait for the factory to send u a new one cause no where sells anything for this gun
Conclusion: dont take this post as me being a [jerk]. i played with this gun for a year its just a fair warning about all its defects, i think i coverd about all of them. you would be better off geting a spydercompact or now they even make dragun compacts (witch is electro blowback) for MUCH less than this gun is just get them and im shure you will be MUCH MUCH happyer with your investment.
giveing it a 2 because a talon is just a lil worse than this gun cause when u break a tallon they wont give u the parts to fix it for free
