This was the first GBBR that i have ever owned, and i must say, great first impression. There are A LOT of things that can be improved in this gun, but that is just me nitpicking. First off, if you play in a semi only arena, which is very common on the east coast, then this gun will out perform every AEG, with the exception of ultra high speed set ups with hair trigger mods. In that case, its quite even.
To get it under 350 FPS, i used a dangerwerx flute valve, which does work in this gun. However, it lowers it down to about 290-300 FPS. But in CQB, 50 FPS doesn't make much of a difference.
I currently run 6x magazines, CASV rail system, AFG, Flashlight, and a 50mm RDS. It is REALLY heavy. You don't really notice at first, but after 7 hours of gaming, you really start noticing it. This is one of those guns where you pretty much need (well, thats a subjective term) to accompany this gun. Even though this is the "C" version, it still could use a little bit of help cutting corners. Plus, the frequent reloading could get you killed.
1. Recoil (could be a con though, since i haven't used other GBBR M4's to compare)
-Definitely a step up from the KWA MP7 i used before this.
-Much more realistic than AEG's.
3. Ability to take real steel grips, albeit with modification
4. Weight, for realism
Now there may seem to be a lot of cons here, but that is just me critiquing heavily on this gun. Its a great gun, and i love it, but it could use a lot of improvements.
1. Upper rail wobble. Must be fixed if you intend on using a piggy back rail system like the CASV or SIR (S-System) rail. Its an easy fix. just go to KWA tech forums and look around
2. Upper receiver wobble. Its annoying. you really don't notice it unless you REALLY wobble it, but it is there. It probably won't be there on an INOKATSU, but that thing is over 1K. Still, for a 380 dollar gun marketed as a Professional Training Rifle, i wish they would have fixed the barrel wobble
3. A lot of trigger play. Now i don't know what the proper terminology for this is, but when you pull the trigger, and it is cocked, there is a "dead zone" where the trigger doesn't really engage anything until you pull back just a little bit further and the hammer comes down. Its mentioned in some review videos. You really won't notice it during play though.
4. NO POWER STROKING! again, as a gun that is marketed as a PTR, you think they would have included the ability to power stroke. but no, they didn't. In which case, it can be modified to have that power stroke ability, which i have done. once you have modded the gun to power stroke, stop slapping the bolt catch paddle. Using the power stroke function will prolong the life of the bolt catch and bolt carrier
5. HIGH FPS. its a M4 CQB. i wish KWA would have taken the time to use a flute valve in their LM4C model. but it is a simple fix.
6. Sometimes the trigger gets mushy and it takes a lot of force to pull. idk why but its gone now. just be aware though
