Upgrades:
Shoot air not CO2.
Freak Barrel system to perfectly match paint ball and barrel size.
Strengths: Price is right at $400-$425. Get an automatic hopper like the evolution II as you will need it when you start letting the paint fly.

I have only been playing for a short time but it is fun because people figure you must be good if you have a gun like this one.

Very quiet and accurate. After playing with Tippmann 98s this thing is a pleasure to shoot. I have had several people ask me how come the gun is so quiet. Everybody also thinks autocockers shoot like darts so they are intimidated by you before you even start to play.
Weaknesses: Before you shoot (or after a little playing around) have this gun professionaly tuned (my local field charged $10). It will be the best money you spend. After that don't touch a thing (except for adjusting the velocity as needed).

Must add drop forward ($20-$50) and hose ($15).

Like a previous reviewer I also found it difficult to remove the bolt all the way as it stcks a little going through the back block. It took me awhile to figure this out but all you have to do to remove the bolt is twist the end of it clockwise.

The manual really sucks but there are some really good articles on the internet and most autocockers are basically the same.

Autocockers can be a little tricky to shoot. Just be sure you pull the trigger all the way back and let it go all the way forward. Just do that as fast as you can!

Autocockers are one of the more complex markers so if you are afraid of mechanical things you should probably get a different kind of marker.
Conclusion: At the given price point this gun is a great buy. Autocockers are fun to shoot as they are quiet and shoot straight. However, Autocockers take a little getting used to and can be intimidating if you fear mechanical things.
