To start off, I have previously owned a AGM 614 AEG...so this was a much needed upgrade for me.
Out of the Box: The first thing I noticed was how sexy this rifle was. Everything except for two things were perfect for me, one being the orange flash hinder. The other was also unavoidable: the stock wobble. Of course, this is to be expected, and was a simple fix with electrical tape. I did find it to a nuisance that no iron sights came with it. After some time, I painted the "competition barrel" matte black, just for aesthetics. Overall, the trades, build, and parts were flawless. I love the medium length and full metal construction (and so does everyone at my local field!)
Performance: I found VFCs internals to be exceptional. It was very simple to strip the rifle. I literally need one tool to remove everything! With .2 or .23 BBs the range is ridiculous (150-200 ft,) and that's stock. However, with .25s the max is around 150...which is still pretty good. The biggest downside to me would be the hop-up. The feed tube for the bbs is so tight that .25s will literally float on the end of the tube once you remove a magazine. This requires you to put the rifle upside down to feed the last four BBs at the end of a game. Again, I prefer metal everything, and the acrylic is sort of off for the price. Nonetheless, getting a 6.04 inner is a plus. I plan on getting a ProWin Hop-Up soon to replace the stock hop-up. I've played about a dozen games and I can say that this rifle is amazing for field play, though it's size is a little finnicky in CQB until you learn how to maneuver it.
-Have to put it upside down and fire to render fully safe
-Long barrel (not CQB friendly, but it does specifically say 13" so that's a given.)
