Product Information:
This gun is amazing. It looks just like the real one. The flash hider that comes with it makes the gun look cool and once you put it on you can't see the orange tip. Even though it's recommended to use hfc gas; I use propane and this thing is a real bad boy. Shot it the day it got in with systema .20's and madbull .43's and propane and let me tell you this thing is powerful; just use propane and .43's and it will fill worse than a wasp bite to your victims that are stupid enough to play with you and this gun. Enough about the power, let me tell how good the externals are. First I'll start with the stock, which has several cool features. One, you can fold the stock to the side to make it easier to store and put the bolt back in or take it out ( the bolt can be taken out). Two, you can raise or lower the cheek pad to make it to your comfort needs. Three, you can take out some of the butt plates to make the gun feel more comfortable to you. And last you can adjust the monopod in the stock to lay on the ground, either for display or when you're sniping prone it makes it easier. Now the magazine. The magazine is very big but is full metal and has no leaks, and it holds 23 rounds (which will be plenty, and if you run out you can just put more bb's in there easily). Plus, Ares sends this really cool loader with it which makes it a lot easier and faster to load the magazine. The bipod in the front is a very good bipod. Like better than most aftermarket bipods you can buy. It has a special way that you have to move it down and up towards the gun ( pull the legs together and pull it down to go down or push them up then let go and they're locked until you squeeze and adjust them again). Also the bipod has a extra quick release length you just hit a button on the bipod leg and it comes out real fast; plus you can hold the button and adjust it to six or so different adjustments (similar to a crane stock). Overall, this gun is amazing. And it performs excellent on internals and externals. By the way the barrel is full metal as the monopod, bipod, and the flash hider. The rest of the gun is nylon fiber and it feels great. IT IS NOT PLASTIC; it feels so much better than abs stupid plastic. However, the butt plate is rubber. But this gun is really amazing, Ares knows what they're doing. This gun looks so much better in person than on the internet. Also if you want to see the real one and compare it to this gun ( which is almost no difference) go watch the future weapons that is about the alaska thing. It shows this gun about halfway through the show. I highly recommend buying a heavy duty sling, because this gun weighs 14 pounds.(trust me it will make sniping with this gun a lot easier). This gun really is awesome and powerful. I fully recommend it to major league sniper. Because this gun is really a major league snipers gun.

Pros:
gun is full metal with nylon fiber body

you only have to pull the bolt back a little for it to load a bb

awesome bipod and monopod

fully adjustable gun (you can take some of the butt plates out and you can adjust the cheek rest) plus you can adjust the monopod and bipod.

come with rings for you to put on a scope

comes with a flash hider that takes away that orange tip

grooved barrel that adds to the coolness of the gun

folding stock

looks very similar to the real Artic Warfare 338

very powerful gas gun


Cons:
does not come with scope

gun comes in the box disassembled with no instructions; and when you call airsoft gi you're redirected to starairsoft.com which has i guess is somewhat helpful, but mostly i just put it together with common sense and smartness.

First off, I have to say this is a beautiful rifle, beating all other of this type hands down in looks and feel. The fluted barrel looks very unique with the included flash hider, and the folding stock is one of a kind. The supplied bipod works as good, if not better than most aftermarket ones. The Scope is adequate, but sits a little low for me, making the adjustable check rest redundant. The receiver has the smaller dovetail rails on it, so the normal RIS/RAS rings will not fit. The stock itself feels very solid and not like plastic at all. Out of box, it chronoíed at 462 FPS (10 rd avg) w/.3g and green gas. Magazine is solid with no leaks, but I still havenít decided if the removable clip idea is a good one or not. So far the only problem Iíve had was with the poor design of the bolt retaining latch on the left side of the rifle, itís extremely small contact surface with the bolt itself started wearing on the bolt enough to cut a groove during the test phase at Airsoft GI, so handle chambering with kid gloves and go gentle on it. So in closing, for a lot of dosh, you get a lot of gun, whether or not you think its worth it is up to you. If thats not an issue, then this is the sniper rifle for you!
