Bought two of these, one for me and one for my girlfriend (her's is the 14.5" barrel though). I'm surprised on how hard the blowback is. The recoil is awesome, but not as much as my real AR15. I'ts more like my AR15-22lr. My girlfriends FPS averages around 390-400 while mine is 340-360 but the recoil is more because its a BIT lighter. But if your looking for FPS, go with the long barrel.
Really gas efficient, I emptied two mags and still have a LITTLE bit of gas remaining. I love closed bolt systems. More gas efficient.
The short version comes with the grey mag, making it drop free when mag catch is pressed. The Tan mags sticks to the mag well
Sling mounts are very sturdy, ran around with it with my one point sling and nothing bent or moved.
A little mod and my Dboys gearbox fits perfectly making it an AEG.
Hop up is really easy to get to and turn on/off.
Trigger respond is realistic.
Really awesome polymer receivers. Kinda wished the rails were metal but oh well.
The stock is REALLY cheap. I replaced the crane stock with a CTR milspec stock I have laying around from my AR15.
The pistol grip is really sharp and I recommend sanding down the edges or buying a new grip.
The buffer tube is to big for the buttplate to stay put at first position. the rest of the position is fine.
The charging handle has a really flimsy feel to it. It rattles from the recoil tooooooo much.
Careful with the ejection port door, its a really flimsy peaice of metal that will bend with little force, causing it to not open automatically when charging a round in.
The flash hider was a pain to remove, but its worth it, Looks so much better with a black muzzle brake.
I recommend that the gun be stripped own and have all the screws tighten up, alot of screws are loose.
Don't lube so much because the hop up swells up pretty bad. happened to mine and I switched it... Good lesson learned.
