Upgrades:
You can't get any except for a new barrel. You might want to use this marker with a remote.
Strengths: LIght weight, comes with an expansion chamber in the grip, two bottom air inputs, Armson barrel standard, shoots fast and it is easy to take apart. It comes with a semi-venturi bolt. I think that the marker comes in 3 different colors (black, green & purple). If your a KSU fan you should like the purple. The marker is made in South Africa but people from that country. South Africa is located in Africa at the Southern tip. The marker is shipped in a card board box that may or may not arrive at your house with dents in it. The box mine came in was white. But the box did have some dirt spots on it so it was not all white.

You can take this gun apart with-out reading the directions. It is that simple. I lost the pin out of one of the bottom inputs so I added liquid steel to it and it worked okay. Do not over grease the bolt or the gun will not recycle and co2 will leak out the barrel. This can be fixed by a good cleaing. The gun can be gased up and dipped in water. After doing this it is best to take it apart and oil the spring so it doesn't rust.

You can place 3 or 4 drops of oil in the intake and gas the gun and fire a couple of times and you won't have to take it apart.
Weaknesses: This marker does not shoot good in cold weather--needs a remote. There are no after-market parts for this gun. If you like to tinker with your gun you can't tinker too much with this one.
Conclusion: This marker is okay but I would get the real thing and buy a Mag or Micromag.

A real great gun!
Weaknesses: Minimal customer service and replacement parts are real, real hard to find.
Uses only non-threaded Armson barrels, so no Freak :(
Instruction book is 5 pages that Armson faxes you!

Conclusion: I was looking for a high end semi for Skyball, this was offered to me cheap so I took it. I am the only tourney player who owns one it seems. All and all, this is a great marker. Don't let the fact that is made in South Africa stop you from buying it. It is a quality marker that stock can easily out preform the 68 mag PF. It also may draw the interest of other players, and have them judge you on your skill and not your set-up
