Upgrades:
In this order:
Level 10 bolt kit (If not equipped with one)
Warp Feed
Flatline Tank system
Strengths: High rates of fire, this marker is capable of firing faster than you can pull the trigger and most hopper's can feed. Through superior design, there is no shootdown, as there is with other markers or CO2 set-ups.
Low upkeep. A couple of drops of lube in the QD after a day on the field and that's it. No need for timing or time consuming maintenance. A yearly o-ring swap is the only major "overhaul" that needs to be performed.
Few moving parts. This marker is 100%% mechanical. No electronics to worry about, if something fails on the marker, it's most likely a blown o-ring.
Customer service from AGD is the best in the business. Also, if you can't get a hold of someone at AGD (a rare occurance), the folks at www.automags.org are some of the friendliest and knowledgeable people when it comes to working on any AGD product.
Twist-lock barrels. If you have a barrel break, give the barrel 1/4 turn and pull. The barrel comes right out. Excellent if you need to clean it in the middle of a game.
Weaknesses: The learning curve for the trigger might be steep. If you don't have a properly installed Level 10 kit, expect to chop balls when you start firing it. Short stroking is a near certanty until you get used to the Reactive Trigger pushing back against your finger.
Conclusion: Some people might complain that AGD markers are paint blenders. I would guess that most of thest people never took the time to learn the marker, or are repeating what they heard from someone else. As with anything else that is new, use it and give it a chance before you draw an opinion.
Other people have complained about twist-lock problems. Most can be repaired with a simple adjustment, be the lock too tight or too loose.

In my opinion, the RT Pro is the best mechanical marker produced. High rates of fire, low upkeep, awesome customer service, easy to work on and a group of other 'Mag owners that are just a click away.
