Upgrades:
Get a bottom line, helps with sighting. Plus a hopper adapted face plate for the magazine since you can't use the forward loaders and at seventy-five bucks a mag, it's cheaper to just have one.
Strengths: I will list them in the review body.
Weaknesses: I will list them....(wait, there isn't any.)
Review: (In this box they don't limit my word usage. For this I will only touch on the qualities of using the AT-10. For a book on the entire AT system, check out my review under the AT-85)

The AT-10 is exactly like the AT-85 in every way except with out the barrel shroud and because of that, no forward loaders.

I bought the AT-10 frame to use in speed ball tournaments (I'm at school and I suffering from withdrawal. So I will play speed ball just because it's a form of paintball), mainly because for hiding in bunkers and snap shooting, the AT-85 was just too big for that. The forward loaders make a nice target when you stick out, so to solve this I just took them off. But that still left the barrel shroud with lots of sharp edges to catch lucky hits on.

The AT-10 solves these problems simply because it doesn't have them. And with a hopper attachment (which is one of the greatest things. ATS stays true to their original idea of making a gun without a hopper to get rid of one less target for your opponent to shoot at, by making the hopper set up so low that the top of the hopper is maybe an inch, if that, above the top of the gun. A great idea) you have a very low profile, sweet shooting gun.

I don't recommend using the barrel that comes with it. It's only about six inches long and in return the ball will still be accelerating when it leaves the barrel. This will make the ball fly as if it sees someone in the crowd and then trys to get their attention by jumping up and down while waving at them. Use the barrel that you got with your AT-85 and then no problems. Another option you can do, though it will take time if you have to use the shipping service (I'm with in easy driving distance of the ATS factory), is buy an AT barrel and have them shorten and re crown a barrel for you. This is expensive but worth it because the Unisizer is one of the greatest inventions to behold in the market of paintball (a humble opinion of mine) and I refuse to use any other barrel.

One more thing, when you use the gun, take off the rear sight. The AT-10 does not have a front sight and in turn using the rear sight alone will give you a false idea of where the paint will go.
Conclusion: I view the AT-10 as an upgrade to the '85. If you don't already own an AT, don't start off by buying the AT-10. It is unnecessary, unless you want a really bad ass pistol for your side. Or if you are looking for one heck of a challenge using the miniature barrel and limiting yourself to twenty five shots.

If you want to play speed ball with your AT, get the AT-10 frame. You will be very happy on how low a profile your AT-85 will now have. Plus, the thing is a regular conversation starter. No one knows what it is and there for you stand out a bit with out the useless need of anodizing your gun and upper torso.

An very good buy and with it you can stay true to the AT.

Thanks for your review most usefull. If you have an extra at around i would most like to perchase it for a resonable price. For my dad will chop off my head 10 times if i bought another marker at $450 dollars!
