i have to say its a nice gun tho, perfect for upgrades and is great on a DMR setting. when i first bought the gun the first issue i had was the back flip up sight. when i went to tighten the screw with an allan wrench the screw snapped and never worked again. i didnt have any screws that size so i just hot glued it to the rail. kinda made me mad...
The second issue i had was the incredible amount of barrel wobble. since it is free floating. the battery is the only thing that can stop this. Also there is like barley any room for a 9.6v battery, after a few tries i got it but still its a pain. also with the barrel, since it is quick detach and all, the little teeth that lock the barrel in place eventually stripped and broke off. i have no idea how its on there now but i managed to make it work...
Lastly the most annoying thing this gun has done to me...
being made by A&K i knew i was taking a risk when buying it, so literally seconds before i was about to start the first game of the day, i go to put my mag in the gun(now i dont ram it in and smack it, i just push it until it clicks and lightly tap it to make sure it stays in) i go to test fire to make sure no feed problems, and what happens, a feed problem...
i go to take the mag out of the gun and see this clear plastic ring stuck in the whole of the mag. this is like one of the most important parts of the gun, its what pushes the tab back in the mag to let the bb's go into the gun. but no A&K thought it was a great idea to make it out of plastic. So the whole day i played using a friends pistol and it just sucked. What sucks the most was when i only owned the gun for about 3 months and it was the first official day of use.
I was a beginner player at the time, i did my research trust me, every review said this gun was worth it and its plays great. this kind of ruined my look on the game and basically told me which brands to trust. I feel bad having to write a review about the gun this way but i cant say anything good because i never played with it in a real airsoft setting, sure i shot a can in my yard for fun before but nothing fantastic.
I will say some good things i saw in this gun
Its very low maintenance, like its not hard to clean, take apart, or anything. its great for a beginner like i was and a good way to start. its also a head turner, i was looking into a gun unique in style and not ur typical m4. everybody sees those but not a masada. plus its a bad ass gun in general i mean theres a reason why its the on the photo for their youtube page.
Please take my experience into consideration, im not hating on this gun, if it was made a little better and i was able to play a game with it, i probably would of loved it. but as of now i own the WE MSK gas blow back because i still love the style of the gun but i hate the problems that followed AEG's so i went gas and will never go back, i havent had a single part break and i have won many games with it. But ill be honest i was ready for a gas gun, with all the tinkering around with the masada, taking apart the MSK was a breeze.
Please, please, please do your research and make the right choice, look into an average m4 and play from there, i probably should of done that but didnt and payed the price
easy to maintain
