Overall this is a great rifle. I have an actual AR-15 and I've laid them side-by-side and performed countless tests with friends to see if they could identify the real vs the airsoft and most people (visually) cannot tell which is which. The weight is almost identical to a fully loaded AR-15. The KWA is a bit heavier than my AR, but it is a very small difference. The gun fires very well, and I don't lose much FPS or rate of fire when unloading a whole magazine.
Great heavy duty gun that will go through most any stresses you put it through. Great feel in the hand, as close to the real deal as possible.
Great kick on the gun, my grandfather was very impressed by the blowback feature. Gives it a nice realistic feel.
Sturdy build, have had nothing break off or bend or anything like that and I've taken it through it's paces.
Works very well in both hot and cold weather. I've played in the snow and was the only one with a gas gun. No problems like most other gas powered rifles would give in the cold.
The price is much higher than most other AR style rifles, but the quality is great for the price. This is definitely not a beginner gun, but the price point is a bit high. The magazines are also high priced, but definitely worth the cost.
The paint is starting to come off where the dust cover hits the lower receiver, but this is to be expected seeing as the amount of times it's hit. Paint is also starting to rub at the trigger. Definitely needs more durable paint, but if this stuff doesn't bother you (it doesn't bother me much) then it's not a big deal at all.
My order didn't ship with a sight adjustment, so I had to purchase one myself (had been using a spent .223 cartridge that is bent to work).
