Strengths: After months of internal debate, I broke down and bought an AT-85. I'm glad that I did, because this gun is b#d#ss. It hits whatever I shoot at and it sounds like an Uzi. It also raises eyebrows wherever I take it. People always ask me to show it to them and to fire it on full auto. I can switch from semi to full auto on the fly, which is great.
Weaknesses: I haven't had any problems with, but from all of the reviews and forums that I've seen, there are many things to consider about this gun. It is possible to bend the pins inside the clip, it requires detailed maintenance every 500 or so shots, and I feel the need to be gentle so I don't break anything. What I'm trying to say is that even though I haven't had a single problem, I am paranoid that I am going to break it. I don't know why, since it feels sturdy and it has performed flawlessly so far. I guess the mechanics of the clip-feed spook me a little.

Oh yeah, I have an HPA version, but I hear the CO2 versions are more problematic. But that's not the gun's fault. Also, don't get this gun if you're a beginner, since the maintenance requires discipline and a little experience.
Conclusion: I love this gun. I have two clips: the standard clip and the Viewloader clip. I hook up the Viewloader clip most of the time, since I can carry 200 rounds with it. However, the standard clip is nice to have, so when I crawl through the brush I don't have a hopper in my way and I'm harder to see, especially with my D2 Tracker on. That's okay though, since the point of upgrades is to improve the performance, and this gun needs no improvement. For less than $500, this gun gives me unparralled accuracy and the capability of full auto with the flick of a switch. Plus, the chain-drive clip makes misfeeds and ball-breakage a non-concern. I have never broken a ball with this gun. I would recommend the AT85 before I would recommend any other gun.
