Being as the Gen-X doesn't come with a barrel, you must buy an after-market one for it. This is good in that it allows you to pick an awesome barrel. I recommend at least a Smart Parts All American, but prefer Dye Boomsticks. An Autococker doesn't need a barrel any longer than 14in, and a 12in is ideal. Also, I'd recomend upgrading to either a Shocktech or Eclipse pivot trigger.
Strengths: Of course, it is an Autococker, which makes it very accurate and robust. It was easy to run with for playing up front, the accuracy for playing on a tape, and the range to play in the back. A good general purpose gun that comes with a nice regulator.
Weaknesses: I didn't like the stock trigger very much at all. I found it too be too snappy and rough, which made it difficult to shoot in tight snap shooting positions, and harder to keep on target from the back. Also, the rate of fire could not keep up with my Merlin and it's pivot trigger.
Conclusion: A good gun overall, but it could be made better by a few upgrades. However, if you're willing to drop the money for a Gen-X, you might want to just save a little more cash and go for a Dye Autococker or something like that. Or, for basically the same price you can pick up a Diablo E-Matrix if you'd rather go electronic.
