This month would be a whole year since the purchase of this gun. I bought it in Aug one year ago, and played my first game with it to find that my tappet plate broke in the first game. No worrys, so I pop another one in. Didn't open it again untill last week.
I replaced the stock CA motor with a Systema Turbo and installed a SP110 and kept the same shimming. I was getting 26 rounds a second with the tamiya plugs. Replaced the tamiya plugs and straight wired it gave me an additional 3 to 4 rounds a second, 29 to 30 rounds a second. Played on it for a 11 months with this ROF before something broke. I had gone through easily 75000 rounds before the following happened.
Stripped two gears, broke a bearing, and burnt the switch out.
The piston looked like it hadn't been used, nor did anything else.
Amazing stock internals
Nice solid body
Awesome battery capacity (currently running a 4500 MAH)
Tons of accessories
Great price for the all metal body, 7mm bearings, aluminum piston head, metal cylinder head, and reinforced cylinder walls.
Easily upgraded as shown, (Systema Turbo, SP110, straight wired with deans and a 9.6 wielded 30 rounds a second.)
Bottom rail will not fit most handgrips, must dremel the handles down about 2mm.
Broke Tappet plate with in 200 rounds
Some people don't realize that what they buy are airsoft guns made in Hong Kong. This sport is inherently un-reliable. If you want reliability, than buy a honda.
