Single most amazing rifle I have ever owned in all of my airsoft history. I compared this directly to my KWA G36c with an upgraded GB, running on a LiPo and the only aspect that the KWA had over this beautiful gun were the trades and magazine capacity. The finish on this gun is exquisite, the breakdown is realistic and easy, the quality of the build is uncanny and the overall durability is unbelievable. I have never had a mag leak, never had a failure, and never had a single jam or BB hop or chop. I cannot express in words my overwhelming satisfaction for this product.
Now to the obvious: the recoil on this gun is unbelievable. Almost on par with the WE M14, equaling that of the WE SCAR, beating every single pistol and smg I've owned. This thing kicks just like a .22 from what I hear; which is weak in retrospect but great for an airsoft rifle.Accuracy is difficult to measure do to recoil but if you're a good shot, you'll hit 10/10. Being a G36, it is ergonomic and very well designed. Another great thing about this is the instant trigger response and satisfying CLICK of the selector switch. The KWA was pretty solid feeling, the Echo 1 was very "mushy", but this gun's selector switch feels very solid and satisfying. It won't change without you wanting to. The only "downside" I've felt is the bolt release being stiff but it breaks in. Mag capacity and cost is a given with GBBR's so there is no point in complaining.
Rate of Fire (Purrfect,)
Famous HK G36 design
Parts accessibility(find replacements at evike.com, the con is that GI doesn't carry them ): )
Stiff bolt release(but it breaks in)
Cost? (but that's a given with GBBR's)
Overall, best gun I have ever owned. Surpasses all the guns I've owned:
G&G Combat Machine (x2)
G&G MP5 (Sportsline)
Cybergun SIg Sauer P226
Cybergun Desert Eagle
and the list goes on...(I'm not this rich, craigslist trading exposes me to a healthy variety)
