Recommended
Upgrades:
All That are listed above. Like all guns it works much better on comp. air. A good barrel always helps. I ground out the top hole on the valve body and polished it, as well as shaving a flat spot on the end of the valve pin shaft to give more blow back to the bolt. If you polish the top of the sear, and round the catching edge of it a bit with a dremmel, it will shoot really fast.
Strengths: A sturdy reliable gun with a good trigger mechanism for the money
Weaknesses: Handle sucks! needs a little work to work nice
Review: I've owned or tried out many different markers in my days. Although it doesn't compare to a cocker or an angel, it is a very good gun for the money. I bought mine when it first came out, before diablo made them. The way I have mine set up it shoots very fast (just as fast as any autococker) and pretty acurate, but of course doest have the range of a closed bolt. I bought it because I was looking for a well built vm-68 clone (or spyder clone for all you young-ins, I like to call um vm-68 clones). Compared to a spyder of the same price it is much more solidly built, and it has a MUCH better trigger.
Most of the guns I've owned I have done a lot of self modification to. The inferno may not shoot super fast out of the box, but it is cabable of so much more. Read my upgrades to see how I modified my gun.
The trigger mechanism is what sets this gun apart from so many in its price range. So many others have such a tremendously long and rough and abrupt trigger pull.
Conclusion: If you are looking for an inexpensive starter gun that you can make into a decent marker with a little time and money, this is a good pick. I give it a seven because you do have to modify it a bit to get it shooting really nice, and the handle sucks. And it is not an autococker or angel, so the highest it could get would be an 8
