Classic Army Mk14 EBR match airsoft gun. Classic army decided to make a version of the Mk14 EBR that looks good in the pictures, but by all means in a $460 paper weight. The gun looks great,but is mostly made of pot metal. And a weak pot metal at that. The exterior is a flat black, with no markings. The only markings come on the upper receiver of the rifle, and thats it. But in its defense,it is lighter than the KART Mk14EBR, at over 2 times the cost.
My rifle stopped firing only after 10 rounds were put through the rifle. Then it stopped. My team gun smith took the gun apart, and here is what he found....cheap wiring, bad motor,and the gears were only shimmed with 1 shim the entire gear set. The anti reversal latch was broken. How ever, the gears were only rounded and not broken,and the piston was unharmed.
I am going to give this gun a low rating in which is consistent with Classic Army army products. I would not recommend purchasing this rifle at all, not even to upgrade. Personally,I would like to see classic army go out of business. Their QC is non existent, they use the cheapest metals available, and they price their rifles far over what they should be worth, and that is worth to nothing.
If you want a better EBR replica, go with the KART. At $179.00 the thing is built like a tank, and the thing is very much upgradeable.Just replace the gear box, barrel and hop up and bushings and you have a EBR at1/2 the price of a piece of trash classic army.
I do own both the classic army and kart ebr. I would buy the kart.Save your self over $200 and up grade the kart.
Cheap pot metal
Great decoration or paper weight
A perfect 1 star rating
Only 1 shim the entire gear box
wiring is cheap
cracked piston head
worn gear box by bad bushings
Way over priced
KART makes a far superior product(thats not saying much)
All in all, if you like classic army,then this gun is for you.
