Upgrades:
You can get the best upgrades for it for Palmers.
I would say definatly get the stabelizer reg it is well worth the money.
matched barrel
If you want it to be quiet get the barrel upgraded to the 12" ported one.
I like the 45 grip frame but that is a matter of taste. The 45 does come with a good trigger though and I have heard it is a great improvement over the stock grip frame.
All the rest are cosmetic
Strengths: Barrel-Accurate and I mean very accurate. This thing will shoot all sorts of paint very well. I shoot some cheap practice pait through it and it was the most accuate I have ever seen that type of paint shoot. I also ran a hopper full of mixed paint through it and it handeled it better than any other barrel I have seen. This barrel is so versitile.

Trigger(Remember this is for the trigger in the 45 frame.)- Smooth. fairly short. It is about 4mm, very wide trigger shoe feels very nice. snappy, very well set. there is no forward or back play in it although there is a little side tio side.

Bolt- QUICK-STRIP You can take the bolt out and put it back in in unber four seconds. very good flow no frills about this bolt.

Pnuematics- The best on the market built into the marker. very effective regulator short four way quick ram.

Overall marker- This is the best marker I have ever shot. I am very happy with it it is light and compact and there ar no frills to it. Palmers has done a great job with this one. I think it is abeautyful. very co2 friendly. almost mantanince free. performance is flawless. It will fire as fast as you can pull the trigger with out any noticable shoot down. Ok so now I am going to give some gun specs. these are for my setup.

Length:15.5" with the 12" barrel it is 17"
Width:2" at the widest point
Highth:10.5" incliding the bottom of the reg on the DF and the top of the feed port
Weight: about 2.5 pounds

Servicing: wonderfull customer service. The best techs around for your marker. good turnaround rate for a custom shop. supirior product. you most likely will never need to send it in for a service job.
Weaknesses: Barrel- Doesnt like it when you break paint. The eliptical honing doesnt handel breaks well. Loud. If you get the stock barrel ported it is a bit quieter but I think you should go with the 12" ported to make it great.

Trigger- Short-strokeable but then again all closed bolt semis are any way. Not as light as I would like but I dont think it would be reliable if it were lighter.

Bolt-Well the only problem I could see is that you could have some one bunker you and quick strip your bolt before you get a chance to fire at them. No really this is an awsome bolt there is nothing wrong with it.

Pnuematics- nothing wrong here

overall marker- not tinker friendly.

Servicing: you have to send it to palmers for anything greater than an oring prob and they are in Calf
Conclusion: Exellent marker! This is the last one I will ever buy. The thing fires flawlessly and the only negitaives to this marker are things that are a matter of personal preferance such as looks and the trigger. I absolutly love it. It is a perfict tiny little powerhouse workhorse of a marker. I feel that it is simply the bes gun on the market.
