It's a great gun on paper, G&G internals, blowback, ~400 FPS, MP5, accurate, and looks great. At some point it is a great gun, but the biggest problem lies within the stock. If you look closely, the stock pin is pretty low (a trait most MP5 internals have), the problem is, that's also where the battery wire sits. The gun I received was great for a short period of time, but after the first month, the positive wire actually gave out and ripped off. Ok, it's easy fixing, no problems. Then the gearbox itself gives out. Just a loud high pitched noise (think: wind up). Another thing that's easy to fix, but again why? It's a G&G, it's supposed to be great out of the box. Tried to fix it, but I ran into another problem. The screw that holds the fire mode select switch is too small and is stripped. I can't disassemble it now. It's a great looking piece of broken equipment. Not sure if I got a lemon, but I expected a lot more from G&G
Balanced (with 4800 battery pack sitting in stock)
Wire sits too low in stock
HUGE orange tip on the silencer (Hard pressed to find a suitable replacement)
Included magazine is crap (starting to split in half)
Pins are a little too big.
