||Pretty darn good rifle
First off this is a pretty solid gun for the most part, when I run all I can hear is the *ka-shush ka-shush ka-shush* of the hi-cap mag that came with mine, everything else is rock solid.
Upon opening the box it was clear that this wasn't a cheap gun, and well worth the price tag to boot, when I charged the battery(8.4v 1200Mah included) and brought it outside, the ROF of this gun all but took me off my feet, it fired faster than my friend's TM P90 out of the box!
FPS is a killer on this in a bad way, the webpage I bought it from stated it at 85-90m/s or Meters per Second, which totals around 290fps. Eeek.... well it helped explain the insane ROF pretty quick but despite that it boasted a very friendly range, especially when I tuned in the 2x scope, and I could keep up with my friend's ICS full metal M4 that costed him over $400.
Cons however include the following -
The front grip indeed IS a pain in the kiester to get off, which is due to the bayonette lug on the bottom, but is easily fixed with a tiny allen wrench to loosen it and rotate it 180* out of the way. Once this is done, the grip is actually incredibly easy to get on and off.
The butt stock will either come splitting down the middle or will split over time, so I would recommend taping it with some black electrical tape or using epoxy, once done, it will never move again.
The charging bolt is all plastic and likely will break if you pull it too many times, it did on me and now i'm stuck super-glueing it together, just be carefull with it and you'll be fine. :)
Don't try to get the flash hider off, I tried using two vice grips and it didn't work so i'm pretty sure it's a one-piece barrel. The selector swich will wear down over time but it still works fine despite how long I've had it.
Other Thoughts -
The foregrip on this gun doesn't have any mounts to it, but a standard rail and some screws and lockbolts from your local ACE hardware store will fix that, now I have a CA M203 attached to the bottom with a front grip just behind for the perfect Tactical advantage. As well, I can mount a bipod and act as team sniper(very easy with the built in scope) and pretty much dominate the field.
A friend of a friend had a TM G36c and wanted my scope, and I wanted his standard sights, warily, I traded it to him for the sights and a $70 scope mount. Much to my surprise this gun takes 100% Tokyo Marui externals, so the sights fit perfect, and I had a 4x scope on my gun.
Now after over a year and a half, my gun still works great, and I've only had to replace the hop-up because I tinkered with it. On top of that, I replaced the power spring with an M110, and the gears fire it perfectly fine still with just a little slower rate of fire.
All in all, I give this gun a solid 9/10 and am VERY pleased with it, I wouldn't trade this gun for anything and don't plan to get rid of it. If you buy it, you will be pleased but remember to use .23g ammo as that fires best in this gun and helps the bbs reach to around 250ft accurately.
