After a year of experience with this replica, I've decide to write a review about it. I'll start of saying if you go to a CQB area that doesn't allow blind firing (Which is most places) I'd stick with the PDW w/ attached stock. The reason being, it's much more secure, holding a steady aim, when pieing the corners. The removal of the stocks, almost sole purpose, is to allow easier blind firing along with easier slinging of the weapon (suppose allows you to akimbo as well :P). But enough with the tactics, on to the gun: The replica fires average 312fps out of the box at 18rps. The lower receiver is composite FRP with the upper receiver being a type of metal (unsure). It's not one that I would attach a silencer too, its a bit loud, just go with it and it disassembles easy enough for a sub-mg. I would, however, go with a high rps ratio gear set and a tight bore barrel when buying one.
Decent CQB replica out of the box.
Ability to attach a low profile rail on top.
Mobility of this replica is unsurpassed for sub-mg. (m93f's are nice too :)
Loud (there is a physiological aspect to that. If nothing else, annoying the other team)
Easy to sling (switch to secondary)
I've noticed a faster reload time compared to m16/ak/ or G~ type replicas.
All in all, after upgrading, best CQB primary I've played with.
Not recommended for MOUT scenarios out of the box, the accuracy is atrocious until you equip a tight bore, and even then it's nothing what a mk16(short),m4, or ak74su could do. (it's basicly an automatic pistol with a large magazine).
Stock sling ring snapped off for first use.. but nothing a vicegrip wouldn't fix.
Price over quality. I think if they marked it down to 170-180, it'd be a fair price. 230 is reeaallyy pushing it. But oh well, bottom line, great gun and can't go wrong with it.
