Product Information:
ICS sig 552. This is a great gun!! I've used it with my son's who own their own airsoft guns, and while they have more powerful guns, this gun holds it's own. I would reccommend this gun especially for it's current price I believe is $189.00. I use a different battery for the gun, then what's they say to use, but it's well worth the price.

Pros:
Great clip capacity, good solid mostly metal gun. Great power, although I use a different battery. The metal sights are great on this gun!! It's accurate, and very durable, just overall a good quality gun.

Cons:
I don't like where the battery is located. I also do not like the plastic covering that is used for the battery cover. I'm not sure what they could used to replace it, but it is a little cheap. The folding stock is ok, but I don't really use it for much except maybe to store the gun.

Product Information:
I snagged this beast from the mystery box. I am more than pleased. This thing is a nail driver. Out of the box it's supposed to shoot at 360 but i chronoed mine at 370-375 and constant. Coupled with its range this gun is one of the only stock aegs ive come across that can hang with and even outperform most of the upgraded field guns out there. The ROF is pretty average. Very accurate. Aesthetically this thing is a pretty sweet piece. The metal is very sturdy and the ABS parts are very high quality. Before i got this gun i heard some negative things about ICS but they must have overhauled all their guns because this thing is flawless. Ambidextrous fire selector, night/day iron sights, adjustable trigger guard and locking bolt catch are all convenient and realistic features. The folding stock has no wobble what so ever. In a market thats dominated by m4 and ak platforms the Sig platform is a breath of fresh air and offers all the customization of any other platform as well as being sleek yet aggressive. I always get compliments on my gun and get a lot of inquiries about it from other players. Not to mention that ICS decided to throw in a bottle of 1000 high polish .20 gram bbs as opposed to a pack of crappy .12s

Pros:
Folding stock
interlocking magazines
Ambidextrous fire selector
night/day iron sights
adjustable trigger guard
high fps
decent rate of fire
very good range
Accurate
Decent weight
locking bolt catch
sturdy construction
unique look
very fair price
1000 ct. high quality .20 bbs

Cons:
Top rail must be purchased seperately

other than that theres not a bad word i can say about the gun. If youre looking for a good field gun fresh out of the box and want to stand out from the crowd with something different from the m4 or ak platforms this thing is perfect

Product Information:
This is my first and only AEG. It took me a while to choose but i am very very happy with my choice. ICS has done a great job on this gun. It is sturdy, well built and shoots amazing. The lower FPS doesnt mean anything because i still hit my target 150ft away. The magazine isn't great but it could easily be worse. The folding stock is a great feature for this gun, it can make it an effective CQB weapon. ALL in all this gun is awesome. It comes with a bottom and side rails ready to go.
I am running with a intellect 9.6v 1600mah stick type.

Pros:
Long accuracy
good rate of fire (17.33 rps)
mostly metal( parts that matter)
Clean stampings/words
great feel when holding the gun
folding stock is great


Cons:
I cant think of anything really big.

Product Information:
now i didn't get the gun from this website but i must say it is pretty nice if you upgrade the spring it will need a higher voltage battery than an 8.4, also Tim, just to put this out there yes the sig 551 and 552 are lipo ready, the only problem i have had with the gun is that with the bolt catch you can break it really easily this is due to the fact that since the bolt is pulled back so far and releases so hard over time it will make the bolt deteriorate and eventually break. but all in all this is a great gun.

Pros:
great rof with an 11.1 lipo
shoots pretty hard, would recommend upgrading the spring if you play outdoors
very solid
nice hi caps

Cons:
bolt assembly is fragile as well as the bolt itself
flash hider was b&*ch to get off had to use a dremmel
nothing else i could think of this is a very nice gun

Product Information:
This was my first experiance with an ICS gun and after hearing tons of horror stories, I am relieved to say that this is only the second AEG I have been impressed with right out of the box.
The packaging is really nice with a velvetized plastic lining which gives it a very elegant look.
The weight and sturdiness of the AEG is very reassuring when you first pick it up, and the fit and finish is near perfect. This AEG was no TM clone by any stretch. ICS put alot of thought into this AEG which is evident when you see how different it is. The bolt locks all the way to the rear with a functioning bolt release, and it even has the rubber dust flaps that hug the bolt handle when it is all the way back. I had no idea what these were on the TM or why they were a separate piece when I had to transfer the piece to the Hurricane metal body. It makes for a very easy hop-up adjustment.

Also, bringing back my memories of the complication in disassembling the TM Sig, this one is one of the simplest AEGs I have had to break down. Right up there with VFC's SCAR series. You pop the front lower receiver pin out and slide the handguards off, and then you push the little ICS button behind the rear sight and the whole upper receiver slides easily off.

A step further with removing the motor and selector levers completes disassembly, but you get the point. The AEG shoots a pretty brutal 378-393fps, which is a little high for my liking, and you can hear it snap pretty loud when it fires, but the movement does sound very crisp and precise. The ROF is a little low, even with a 9.6v NiMH 1400MaH battery, probably due to the high power.

The only cons I sort of have are that battery changes could get a little annoying because the upper receiver likes to slide forward along with the handguards, so you will be trying to line up all three pieces before putting the receiver pin back in. It just takes a little practice though. I was able to fit a 9.6v stick battery along the top, but thats about as big as it'll take. The selector lever is also pretty stiff and unless you beat off alot, you will probably have to take you hand off the grip or use another to move it into the "20" position. The trigger guard also swings left and right a little too easily, but I won't let that get to me. That's about all I can think of. If you are thinking of getting a 552 or 551, based on this piece here, I would take these over the TMs or the upcoming G&G ones anyday.

Pros:
Perfect fit and finish.
Very good accuracy and velocity. 3" spread at 15 yards.
High quality materials used.
Very economic; to be able to get a full metal and trademarked SIG SG series without going through the hassle of disassebling a TM and putting it in Hurricane's kit along with the Guarder metal parts for half the price is insane.
Compatible with TM scope mounts, cheek pads, and magazines.
Easy disassembly compared to TM. Hop-up and barrel changes are a breeze.

Cons:
Selector lever is pretty stiff.
Battery changes can be awkward.
The trigger guard swings kind of loosely.
Bolt handle is not held in by much; just at spring loaded catch visible on the side of the bolt. When letting the bolt slam forward, it tends to shake it loose so that it may fall out. Be mindful of this after letting the bolt go forward.
Battery space limited; 9.6v or 11.1v Li Ion stick battery is about it for an internal fit. A simple drill hole would probably allow for a PEQ however.
SIG SG mags may not fit well in your pouches as they are pretty wide and long.

Product Information:
After having a couple of m4's (ca & kwa) and an ics/ae mp5 i decided i wanted to try something different. My aim was 400 fps, stamped steel body, folding stock, and a version 3 gearbox that wasn't an ak. well this gun had it all, ics has all the right ideas but when it comes to the final product, they sorely disappoint. my old airsoft elite mp5 worked great but had problem with some of the ics parts (selector and hop up) but i was hoping that the good things id heard about the L85 meant that they had come a long way. Not the case. The plastic handguard came broken where it interacts with the body, the body itself wobbled, folding stock retention rattled, cocking bolt handle realease rattled, magazines didnt feed (even with a bit of lube), bolt itself had to be pushed down just right in order to go back, and the selector was just horrible. its incredibly difficult to move, does not click unless coming from auto downward (and even then it just clicks, but not into place) and is just awkwardly built. I was very unsatisfied with it (so much so that I returned it) and would recommend that if you have $300 invest in a KWA, i was much more impressed with mine and i regret getting rid of it.

Pros:
Version 3 gearbox (supposedly better for high velocity upgrades)
400 fps
large grip (i have big hands)
quick take down
folding stock
bolt release

Cons:
body rattles
cheap plastic handguard
folding stock catch rattles in stock
tought bolt catch
cocking boltt handle release rattled
selector switch will make m4 users cry
bad mags
comes with two of them
plastic hop up (not horrible)
performance is nothing spectacular
