So I bought this gun based on all the positive user reviews I watched on youtube, there is alot of hate for this gun when it comes to high end players who spend 500+ on all their guns, and something about that was fishy to me because all the users vids I saw spoke relatively highly of it. So I said screw it, its only 205 (160 after discount) and a few mags for it.
By far the best bull pump rifle I have ever shot, I have a CA AUG, I have shot the ares tar 21, and many FAMAS, and all felt quirky, and off. The UAR feels solid and great all around, the poly plastic body is high grade material, and feels great to shoulder, every thing feels just right with its layout, save the selector switch, more on that later.
To start, HOLY CRAP this thing hits hard (415-430 fps)with its extra spring that's included, it shoots far and accurate and in auto its spread is decent ( about a 4-5 inch grouping ) which is fantastic when you look at the price, second the gun just looks so cool, I cant tell you how many events I go to that I constantly and get asked about it, and really gives you a uniqueness not found on the field often, I get remarks that are mostly positive. Its futuristic yet grounded look make it look like its a gun that could actually exists in our modern age. The guns has no sights on it, but it has 4 tactical rail systems that run underneath on the sides and along top rail, all are plenty sturdy and the top is just begging for a Holo sight, or other futuristic optic. Which brings me to another point, everything looks sexy on this gun, anything period, hell my friend but a vertical grip on its side rail and added a drum mag and it looked like a saw out of Killzone. The internals are all metal, and well made, all greased up and put together well. you may want to open yours up though first to make sure its all there because these manufactures can make horrible mistakes sometimes, and not put it together right I had a similar experience with a TM I bought from red wolf, but this gun had no such issues, just a precaution.
But like all good things there is a down side to this great gun, the mag well for starters is extremely picky, meaning unless you want to do some extremely minor modifications to the mag well, you will need to buy certain mags, I bought D-boy mags, and they work like a charm, no miss feeding, no falling out of the mag well, they fit solid, and are in there good. not to mention all affordable them self's. My next complaint isn't really a complaint more like a pet peeve, the barrel is really hard to get off and will require patience and careful execution to take off. Now there where a lot of people saying that this guns plastic guard over the stock comes off with ease and is annoying, I don't know if I got a newer version of this gun, but 3 months in, and I have no such issues, in fact, I haven't had any of the issues some mention. My last complaint is the battery space it has, or there lack off. it takes a stick type battery and its a tight fit for that too, so no large type battery can be used by default BUT it is worth mentioning that if you have a battery box laying around, the wiring can easily be coxed through the faux vent holes to connect to a external RIS system, so there's that. lastly the selector switch is awkward and can be hard to switch to semi as its layout is not like standard,as auto is the second setting and semi at the top verses the mid, again this is preference.
All and all, don't listen to all the big shots out there calling this gun another cheap gun, yes its affordable, and yes it has its flaws, but its pros are so good, and its flaws are soo petty and few that it doesn't bring it down, bottom line, if your looking for a new look, and want a 200 or under priced gun, you cant beat this. And those who say other wise are more then welcome to be shot by it on the field, because I can tell you one thing, they always call out with this thing in full auto, always ;P
Hit's HARD with the extra spring and reasonable with the weaker spring, (your range is 350-360 low spring, and 414-430 high spring)
Unique look, and bad-assery
fully costumisible with almost all accessory
solid, great body, with great weight distribution
affordable, more then worth the asking price
accurate at a distance
long trigger pull
battery compartment kinda small (again fixed with a battery box or lipo)
mag well is a bit picky (remember to buy D-boy mid caps)
awkward selector switch
no sights included
