First of all this gun is solidly made, just like the M98. I say the M98 over the 98C because IMO the Model 98 was much better than the 98C.

Good:
Durable. This thing is deffinately a workhorse.
Somewhat polished internals. The internals had a bit of a "sheen" to it unlike the 98.
Air efficiency was actually pretty good. I went through about 600 shots on a 47/3000 tank.
Ease of use....its a Tippmann, enough said.
Folding and Collapsible Stock...you can't get that kind of stock...anywhere.
Upgrades: theres so may 98 parts that can be put onto this gun. Plus rumor has it that Tippmann/US Army are coming out with a RT trigger for the Salvo.

Bad:
Weight. It's a bit on the heavy side.
Cleaning. With all the rails it can be a pain to get all the paint off.
Stripping this beast down can take time. There are a lot of little pieces and a lot of screws.
Rate of fire. Although you can get a good 7-9 bps with the stock trigger (if your fast enough) it doesn't keep up with the other guys.



Overall: I love this marker. First time I used it was yesterday (June 20th) and I had no problems what so ever. When I first picked up this gun, I knew it was a workhorse. I could drop it and nothing would break. The foregrip feels solid the folding and collasible stock is one of a kind and it too is built sturdy. The mag that holds your tools is cool but impracticle IMO. Im not going to feild strip this gun due to too many little parts.

Rating: 8/10 I don't want to rate this too high only cause it has its limitations. If your into Mil-Sim $150 will get you a solid gun with all your Mil-Sim parts on it already. The fact you can get upgrades for this gun makes me rate it up there as well. All in all great gun, and it deffinately turns heads.

well considering a 47/3K tank advertises 600 shots that to me is air efficient. Especially since its a Tippmann and tanks don't always get the amount of shots they advertise.

I was kind of hoping more people posted replies, I just traded for this gun and hadn't got a chance to use it yet.
