Disappointing at best. Purchased this rifle as a back up to my KWA. Out of the box, the gun looks and feels very nice. However, when I initially tested it, it would not fire full auto without dry firing. After consultation with ASGI, I returned for warranty repair, which revealed a broken tappet plate. ASGI did repaired with no hassle and returned the gun.
I took it out for skirmish battle test. Worked well for two games, then stop firing completely. I suspected a blown fuse, but both fuse and battery were fine. After several minutes working the fire selector, gun started firing again. In the third match, gun stopped firing again. I suspect a loose wire or contact in the trigger assembly. The last skirmish, the plastic magazine broke. A very small plastic tab on the front of the magazine snapped off, rendering it useless. For $280, my experience with the gun is very unsatisfactory. Having researched several alternatives, I expected G&G to better than this.
Nice looking gun,
Heavy weight and construction,
Decent platform for upgrade
ASGI customer service on repair
Poorly designed magazine
Very expensive for the number of problems.
I would not recommend - for this level of investment - spend a little extra and buy a KWA
