This is a great gun! I have purchased a total of 3 AEGs now of different brands and this one is going to easily become my favorite. It has a solid feel feel to the body and the various switches and levers. Availability issues of the carbine version lead me to purchase this instead and I'm very happy with the purchase. Up until today (6/6/12) the only magazines that were close to being compatible with this gun were the classic army FAL magazines. I can confirm from direct experience that the classic army magazine does not feed well on full auto but well enough on semi. Lancer tactical has finally released magazines to go with this gun. Buy the Lancer magazines to save yourself the headache AND money of getting out gunned due to 1 per 4 bb fires on full auto. For me, this gun came out of the box shooting 422 fps with .20g bbs.
Solid feel to the body
Durable switches and levers
Working bolt release
Beefy folding stock
Complete metal sling attachment points
Very realistic compared to the real FN Fal
Cheap plastic flash hider (suggest a metal one)
PEQ box has excessive lens covers and other loosely attached "doohickeys" that could easily shear off in a forest skirmish
The hand guard wobbles about a quarter centimeter but can be mitigated by either mounting a scope between the two rail seems or using an RAS fix plate.
Potentially rare magazines
