I decided to go with this gun after my CYMA Thompson M1A1 broke. I've owned it for a couple months now and played with it several times now.
First of all, this gun look awesome. I put a 3-9X40 scope (I'm working on upgrading it to a DMR) and mock suppressor on it and I get compliments on it's looks everywhere I play.
The build quality is great. I have dropped it onto concrete from 5 feet by accident, and aside from shattering the orange tip (not a biggie because I put a suppressor on it) the gun was unharmed.
I play outdoors, so I needed a field gun. This fits the bill excellently, i get an fairly accurate grouping out to 100+ feet.
I'm left handed, so I love the ambidextrous fire selector, bolt catch, and mag release ( the charging handle can be switched to the left side also).
Overall, a great gun for the price. I recommend it to all my friends.
-Great build quality.
-Ambidextrous fire selector, mag release, bolt catch.
-Easy to strip down and clean.
-Easy switch out barrel (great if you decide to buy the CQB kit, which I plan on buying in the future).
- 7 point stock with adjustable cheek rest (also folds to side, but I never use that feature).
- Good range (80-110ft, depending on the weather).
-Fairly large (this can be a Pro or Con, depending on your preference) I play outdoors and enjoy a large gun with a good weight.
-Good battery life (I play with a 1400mah 9.6v and it lasts my 5 hour games).
-Unique Hop Up, really easy to adjust.
-Weight. Good balanced weight, my arms don't get tired carrying it around all day.
-a couple of the screws were loose when I first go the gun (just a warning, make sure everything is tightened up before you go out and play).
-the stock motor is not that great, it has a fairly slow pullback time, 1/4+ with a 9.6v. This can be a problem if you're using semi-auto and try to squeeze of several rounds quickly. When I tried rocking a 8.4v in the gun it took 1/2 to 3/4 of a second for the spring to pull back then release (SO DON'T GET AN 8.4v FOR THIS GUN!).
