Product Information:
Reviews are sometimes thin on information that you may (or may not) want to read so I thought I would do as thorough a review as possible. Here are some facts that I have found to be true in my fooling around with this weapon.

- FPS is a little higher than advertised (~460 FPS) ; I am waiting for the spring to settle in.
- 17" (410mm Inner Barrel)
- Full Metal 8mm Bushings
- Flush mount bushings (bushings are mounted flush with the gear box; makes for easy shimming)
- Self shimming spur gear
- Self shimming specter gear
- Standard strait cut bevel gear
- High Torque/Speed Motor (standard VFC from the e-series I think)
- Standard VFC Gearbox with lower reinforcement line
- Gearbox has additional material on the top portion rather than reinforcement line
- Fully LiPo Ready
- Silver Plated high quality Copper Wiring
- 6.04 Inner barrel
- Accurate at ~150 - 175 feet with .25

Overall I am really impressed with the build quality and the comfort of the weapon (for all the reasons listed above). It feels solid and is comfortable to use. I am a taller person and I don't like being all bent up as I am when I am using shorter weapons. The stock is not awesome but quite good. It's got some wobble issues (which really is not that annoying) because of the buffer tube. The battery compartment is small so it takes a little more time to get the battery installed, that being said it's not flopping around and making tons of noise either.

4.75 out of 5 (because of the crane stock issues)

Pros:
- Light weight and sturdy
- Great FPS accuracy balance
- reliable internals
- LiPo ready
- KICK BUTT trade marks (should get you some street credit)
- Front slit sling mount. Provides flexibility if your using a 3 point sling


Cons:
- No buffer tube sling mount (but you can install one yourself if your use to the nut on the buffer tube)
- Crane stock is a little wobbly but it's not a show stopper. Replacing the buffer tube or entire stock is the solution so may not be worth it.
- Crane stock battery compartment is tiny and take some patience to install a battery, a different crane stock would fix this.
- I wish it had a cheek riser and the rail had more QD sling mounts but that's splitting hairs.

Product Information:
Inner barrel length is 400mm for starters for all who need to know. The construction of this gun is absolutely solid. although the stock is a bit wobbly( couple strips of electrical tape on the buffer tube fix this) the build quality and materials is amazing. Rails are a bit sharp would recommend some rail ladders. Internals are same as a vfc e-series. the piston in this gun is okay, the gears are shimmed good out the box, motor is a bit iffy( the bottom plastic piece snapped off while taking it out on mine), air seal is great barrel is 6.05mm diameter. Now the hop up is a bit iffy as is the mag well. it takes all the mags ive thrown at it but they all require you to force the magazine in there pretty good so they lock and feed properly. King Arms full metal hop up recommended replacement with guarder bucking as well. My major issue with this gun is the wiring. My motor connector arrived snapped, and when I removed the stock from the buffer tube the wires game with it(theres two plugs in the buffer tube where the cords connect and they snapped off). when I tried to remove the buffer tube to reconnect them ( you have to) the screw stripped so you must be very careful. The wiring itself is very fragile and I would be very careful about bending it. Overall a great gun but if I could choose again I would go with the noveske kwa verson instead.

Pros:
Great externals
Very nice trades
395fps out the box (perfect for outdoor field)
imitation gas tube a nice touch
perfect shimming stock

Cons:
wires are terrible
mag well is a very tight fit ( pro is mags don't wobble much)
plastic hop up works but not as great as a kings arms full metal ( know this one fits, prommy and mad bull might not)
make sure your aoe is correct on this gun or piston isn't going to last long
be very careful with connectors in stock
don't strip the screws like me ha
