First i would like to point out that this gun is a SPORT LINE. The externals on the body are pretty sound. Everything is solid and holds together rather well. The charging handle isn't exactly "rock solid" when you charge it but it proves no purpose to the gun itself so it doesn't really matter. The receiver (black part of rifle) is all metal and is kinda easy to scratch and ding but it has a nice solid feel to it and makes it quite easy to add "character" to the gun. The high cap included feeds wonderfully and the scope is a nice touch. I do not recommend trying to sight the scope because you can easily strip the screws and it does its job out of the box just fine. Externally its a pretty decent build. The body (OD part of rifle) is made of plastic but it doesn't really feel cheap at all. It feels solid and has a little heft to it. The gun does not come with a black flash hider included in the box like most guns so i would recommend buying one with your purchase.
IF YOU GET THIS GUN YOU WILL HAVE TO UPGRADE IT IN ORDER FOR IT TO REACH ITS FULL POTENTIAL.
Despite some of its problems I am absolutley in love with the gun, however it does lack accuracy, range, and power out of the box. It does a good job of putting plastic in a general direction but in order for it to be the long distance compact rifle it can become you will need to drop aftermarket parts into it. Getting a simple tune up kit and a tight bore barrel can make a hinge difference in any guns performance and thats what i plan to be doing soon with mine.
I took this out to a 2 day night/day op at my local field here in Texas to try and get a players perspective on the gun.
The battery lasted the whole day with no problems. I just charged it when i could and my battery never died. The gun did get heavy after awhile but it wasn't unbearable. I could pick off targets around 120 feet away fairly easily. It was really enjoyable looking through the scope and seeing all my BBs pepper a target. Even though it wasn't accurate it did its job of getting the BBs where they where supposed to be. I liked the compact size of the gun. i could tuck it in really tight and dip around corners with ease. Even though the gun lacked power players could easily identify when I hit them. Even though it does lack range and accuracy I had a few lucky shots that day. One time I was pinned against a building with 5 other guys and I saw a guy on the other team poking his head above a tree line around 130 feet away. So i leaned off the wall and arched right above his head and shot a single shot. Luckily the BB glided straight and hit him right on his face mask that was shortly followed by a loud "HIT". It felt pretty good to be congratulated by everyone that was around me on the great shot.
So this is a pretty good gun. It gets the job done. I have little complaints and I have my fair share of luck when I use it. Just know you will have to upgrade it in order for it to compete with other rifles in its class.
Great platform gun
Scope is a nice touch
lacks accuracy, power, and range.
basically puts BBs in a general direction
NEEDS TO BE UPGRADED
No black flash hider included.
