First Impressions: WOW. This gun looked awesome. I got the black, since the ACU and OD were out, but it works fine. I immediately took it out to fire off a few shots, and after going through one magazine's worth of shots, I was very satisfied with my purchase. A quick couple of poor man's chrono tests had it between 470 and 500 FPS- amazing for the price.
It's got a nice, heavy feel, the bolt was nice and smooth, trigger pull even at that speed was easy, and it had such a satisfying feel when I drew back the bolt.
The finish on this was done very well. The outer barrel, despite me bringing it through brush, thick vegetation, sand, and everything in between, has yet to scratch, and the ABS stock makes it light enough to be practical, but is solid enough that it doesn't feel chintzy. Only fault I had with the stock was that the seams were fairly visible.

Two months: This gun has held up very well. The stock hasn't even chipped, the barrel again hasn't scratched, and it's still firing at over 470 FPS- that's after putting about 1500 rounds through it. So while it's still got a good amount of breaking in to be done, I don't suspect it'll go below 430, at least not for a long time.
The hop-up on this thing is fairly extreme. With .2's, it's ridiculous. I was forced to use .2's a couple of matches, and after about 60-65 feet, they veer up and occasionally to the left. If you don't use at least .25's, don't expect to be much more than a scout with a glorified pistol. Seriously.

The sling was too much work for me to bother with. I tried it for a game, and quite frankly it just got in the way of a few really good shots. I now use it without a sling, and in addition to being easier to maneuver, it's also a lot quieter.

The bi-pod is nothing to write home about, but for "free", it does the job. I found it to be a little high, but if I positioned myself slightly lower, it worked alright.


Overall: This gun is great for the price. Even at 100 feet, when it manages to get a BB that far with any accuracy, there's still a lot of thwack behind the plastic. Don't expect this to compete with any high-end sniper rifle; I got this gun to see if I liked sniping, and it completely convinced me to go for it.

Rating: 5 of 5 Stars! [5 of 5 Stars!]
