Upgrades:
Bottem line C02 adapter, barrel from Barrels of America (they make the only barrels for the Point Zero)
Strengths: This gun even though made out of plastic is almost indestructible. Don't be fooled by the price, this gun is great for beginners or for anyone that wants to have fun. It's actaully pretty accurate with the one stage 8" barrel, I can hit targets okay over 75 yards away. The bonus of a raised sight rail and right sided feed is good for newer players because they don't have to learn how to shoot down the side of the gun. While the trigger pull is kind of long, you can get a good rate of fire out of it. The sound the marker makes allows you to scare the renters becuase it sounds like a M9 9mm pistol! It's good a good handle and has a pretty good size. I sometimes use it instead of my Impulse to have some fun with the renters and to really tick off the cocky gun owners who ridicule this marker.
Weaknesses: It's kind of hard to field strip, you have to take apart the gun to clean out the bolt, and it can be pretty hard to remove the pins that hold the gun together. The trigger pull is long and hard, but when you use it alot, it eventaully get lighter. The same goes with the rear cocking nob, it's hard to pull it back when you first get it but after a couple of times using it, you'll notice that it's easier to pull back. Also with the nob, I would suggest getting a aftermarket beavertail if you intend to stay in tight to your bunker, as the nob itself is long and it can hit you pretty hard.
Conclusion: This gun is great for the beginner player and is one of the better lower end markers out there. If you decide to get into the sport, I suggest getting this marker. Or if you want to mess around with the lower end guns and don't want to spend a lot of money, go for this. It's worth the money ($100 Canadian where I bought it). And you can get on Ebay for $35 Canadian sometimes. Go for it!
