it is pretty loud,the wieght,not really a huge issue just a little heavier normal,it does come stock witht he boly cycleing at about 100 psi,can be turned down to bout 60 psi,i neve broke a ball except useing extremly crappy diablo seconds,a good barrel,vert reg,mac mound with metal elbows,delrin bolt,adjustable lp reg are just some of the great upgrades(in some cases just great looking)can also get a flat back block,tornado valve,i seen some with anti chop eyes,the galeforce board and so on for other upgrades

ok, im here to answer them

ppl say it's very loud how loud is it and can i quiet it down w a good barrel?
yes, it is inherantly(sp?) loud. a new barrel with porting will help it some, but it will still be louder than most guns.

does it have a lot of kick to it??
not much at all. not as much as a spyder/raptor/phirrana/M98 but more than a cocker

how heavy is it?? ppl say it's like a 100 pund rock (sarcastic but that's the point)
it is heavy. (its by no means 100 pounds however). but nonetheless, it is heavier than your average gun

and is it really 100 psi??? ppl say it comes stock at 100 psi that's nuts i haven't ever heard of that...
the 100 psi part is the cocking pressure. like on a stock autococker. the HP Reg is around 350psi and thast what fires the ball, and there is a LP reg around 80 that workes the pnuematics. the 100 psi here is the wokring the pnuematics pressue and the 350 is about what the gun uses to fire the ball

ppl say it can't break paint it'll just bounce off the ball and u fire again...is this ture?
umm...if my gun fires 250fps and so does your RM, they are going to have the same chance of breaking(assuming that temp, ball kind, ball age, etc are all the same)

lastly what are some good upgrades i can get for it.....??
Cocker LP Reg, Barrel, Trigger, ForeGrip, MacMount, New Board, HP reg, Nitro tank, Turbo Valve, polishing everyting, Delrin Bolt, the list is endless

thanks
any time

yea i meant chopping kev....u know me from over at beog....whpaintballer
if i get ur aa will it make i much quieter??
also....my m98 i might trade it for weighed around 8 lbs w/ a full hopper and 24 oz tank and around 10 lbs when i carred the 114 tank on it....is the rm as heavy as that....i'll run it on a remote most likely to get rid of most the weight i can....
so does any1 know how heavy it is w/ a full hopper ???
here's a pic of both guns to see if it's a good trade...
the 98 doesn't come w/ the hopper or tank and the rm comes w/ stock barrel not that one....(btw the shrous isn't really on the gun just on top to see what it looks like)

bout the barrel:
the barrel you have seems to have a good deal of porting, so IF my SPAA would make a difference it wouldt be huge difference in noise. id love to sell it to you(i have a freak and just want to get rid of it sicne i dont need it), but honestly, try out the one you have and see if you think you need it to be quieter. and i DOUBT that the barrel of mine will makea huge differnce

and as scott said, if you want an electro, go for it!
