The Pro/Carbine is also rugged enough to be a great rental gun, in fact it's generally considered to be the best field rental gun.

Good points of a Pro/Carbine
Good out of the box 
Excellent accuracy and range with an aftermarket barrel
Good gas efficiency (700-900 shots out of a 12 oz. tank, varies much with atmospheric conditions)
Well balanced with a 12 oz. or 20 oz.
Great cold weather gun (shoots fine with liquid CO2, in fact it can run off a siphon tank)
LOW ball breakage
Light Weight

Not so good points of a Pro/Carbine
*Relatively loud (ported barrel fixes that problem)
*Trigger is tight(can be easily fixed with a lighter spring)
*Stock barrel lacks accuracy
*Long gun (not necessarily a bad point for players who prefer rifle like guns)
*Elbow teeth cut a hole in the hopper(recommend taking it out and use a shim if the hopper clamp doesn't tighten)
*Breaks a lot of tank O-rings(unless tank is removed properly)
*Doesn't have excellent rate of fire out of the box (can be improved)

How to fix the not so good points

*See the section named "Modifications"

Aftermarket Goodies
A couple of years ago when the Pro/Carbine first came out, it had very little upgrades. How times have changed. Now the Pro/Carbine
is one of the top customizable guns you can buy. As you read on, you will see what I mean.  These are the friends who help you even the score with tricked out Automags and Autocockers. This is what I know, feel free to give me any other products I left out.
