Upgrades:
Mags and CO2 just do not work together - before spending $$ on things to try to make CO2 work just get your money together and buy NITRO
Strengths: Tom Kaye - number one strength of AGD
Strength - ruggedness
Weaknesses: Weight - if it matters my setup gets heavy, I don't mind
Review: The reason I purchased an automag - Tom Kaye, his writings, his answers, his attitude have influenced this sport, and this company for the better more times than I can count, his honesty about the technical aspects of guns and his competitors is inspirational.

Ok, first things first - all comparable markers (cockers, mags, angels, etc.) will shoot comparably with similar barrels, consistent pressure, and good paint. Accuracy is influenced by consistence - consistent paint to barrel match and consistent pressure (btw, all paintballs zig-zag in flight so accuracy only gets so good). If your worried about speed the minimag may not be great for you - shooting about 11bps with the valve (or so, I don't know the exact #) is all its good for - I personally have no desire to burn through more paint than that so the mags (non-RT) are perfect for me - I'm not coordinated enough to pull the trigger any faster than what my mag is capable of.

The key point of this though, ruggedness. I have nose dived into bunkers before, buried my mag in the dirt, tree, bunker - cleaned out the dirt, and been shooting again as good as before. That is why I bought a mag - they are tanks. The mag will serve you well - and AGD will update things as they come along. I love my mag, I love AGD.
Conclusion: Buy a mag - reasons on this one: mags will be around for a long time - if a major innovation is introduced (I don't think an important one has been in some time - I don't think electronic markers have an advantage over mechanical, and I can only shoot so fast) AGD will make the upgrade for your gun - it will cost you money, but thats part of it.

If you don't like the Mag, buy a cocker - great gun as well, I don't like them as well but they are comparable.

The electros are overpriced and what advantage do you get?
