For: Elite Force H&K Blow Back G36KV AEG Airsoft Gun (BLK)Product Information:
My first Airsoft gun. Got this when it was still $299.99 but after a coupon, about $260. Pretty solid BB AEG especially at its price right now. Skirmished with it a couple times at a CQB arena, haven't played outdoors yet surprisingly, but i'm sure it will perform just as well. Be fair warned though, although the site says that it fires at about 380-390 FPS my personal chrono was about 460 FPS. I had to utilize the quick change spring system to put in an M100 spring in. Which still shot at 360 FPS with a fully charged battery. Also it is built by S&T I believe at the time of this review, the internals are pretty good except the piston, which would have been fine without the strong spring. I have heard it may or may not break after extended use, if you put a CQB spring in it I don't think it should be a problem. I have had this gun since September 2012, it is almost the end of November right now and it's still performing fine. The Electric Blow Back actually caught a lot of people's eyes in the chrono station at where I played my first CQB arena game. For some odd reason a bunch of people were crowded into the room. I also put a reflex red dot on the rails system included on top of the built in 3x scope, I personally thinks it look more curvy and better looking and adds to its look.
Officially liscensed by Umarex and therefore has HK trademarks on the gun, and reads as 5.56x45 NATO
Electric Blow Back
Built in 3x scope and rails system
You probably won't be using the 3x scope that much, the eye relief isn't all that great. I wear a Save Phace mask and I can't look down it unless my mask is off. Haven't tried it with goggles yet though.
Internal failure possible with stock spring too strong for standard polycarbonate 1 metal tooth piston
FPS a lot higher than stated from stock, Stated: 380-390 Actual: 460
Glued on Flash Hider
Sort of tricky battery space. You need nunchuck batteries, or else you will end up misalligning the handguard with the little pins. I actually made the mistake of buying a mini battery and ended up pinching a wire in the magwell.
