Ok, I got this gun in July of '08, I've probably fired around 6,000 to 8,000 rounds since I bought it. I recently took it to an event in Columbus, OH and had a chance to chrono it. After the spring was worn in, I expected the ROF to drop to around 360-380 FPS.
After chrono, I found this rifle STILL fired not only well above and beyond the expected from G&G but above the event cap limit. This beast was crankin 434.0 FPS with a pt. 2 round. I had to use my UTG M3S, (also a great buy).
This rifle is hands down the most durable airsoft gun I've ever seen as far as the internals go.
This rifle is FULL metal, it is solid as a rock and I couldn't be happier with it
This rifle has rail mounts all over it, making this rifle very versatile
