Product Information:
Well, this one's a mixed bag. Got great mechanical stuff, but the wiring is just atrociously bad. Q.C. Lonex? I dunno, I don't see how soldering the trigger switch wires together could possibly have passed someone testing it. Mechanically it's pretty sound and well machined, the gears, piston and frame are very durable.

I haven't gotten to test mine yet, I tried to install it into a Tin Star S2S M4 Extended and ran into a couple of immediate snags. As the previous reviewer mentioned, the wiring harness is REALLY short on the back. Mine was basically a mini Tamiya snugged against the shell, couldn't even clear the M4's lower cutout to buttstock interface and remain useable. I took the high road and removed the connector, soldered new wires on, installed everything else and tried to test it. The Burst Wizard indicated a short. Started testing with the multimeter and found that there was indeed a short, inside the mechbox to the frame. So I open up the mechbox and hope to find something I can tape-n-go, cause I want to avoid more solder work... no such luck. The + wire was partially stripped at the rear shell exit (I might have done that) but the + wire from the switch to the motor was also stripped at the sprag. Then I noticed the switch leads appear stuck together at the solder points, sure enough someone soldered through the insulation on one and stuck it to the other. So until I can replace the harness with something superior (Burst Wizard hardwire, here I go), I'm left typing out this review.

So to sum it up, great mechbox if you aren't afraid to fix the wiring or get lucky and get one with proper leads. Probably not worth the current price + labor though.

The mechanical elements deserve 5 stars, however since it's sold as a unit the wiring earns it a one star rating.

Pros:
Mechanically sound, well designed and assembled to tight tolerances

Cons:
Wiring needs to be yanked and replaced with something more...sane?

Product Information:
First off, it has a very nice build quality and feels very durable. The steel cylinder gives the body a nice look and the trigger feels very snappy. I did have quite a time trying to fit it into a DBOYS receiver, but with a little work it finally fit. Let it be duly noted that this shell fits into some receivers very, VERY tightly. I had a lot of difficulty with it. It did make up for it in performance though. I let it run with a 1/4 charged 9.6V battery and got at least 20RPS off of it, at somewhere around 430fps. So it's very good for a DMR build or a longer ranged rifle. Speaking of batteries...it uses mini tamiya type connectors by the way. But I feel that the battery wires extending out the back of the gearbox are a little too short.
Overall, I like it. It shoots fast and hard, and just feels NICE.

Pros:
Great quality
Mostly (if not all) CNC-milled parts
High ROF
High FPS
Uses Mini Tamiya connectors


Cons:
Short battery wires
Fits tight
Firing selector is a bit sticky and resistant to move.
