Got this for Christmas of 07, it was my first AEG. After playing in 3 or 4 wars with it the stock started falling off. I was able to fix it but it took a little while to figure out how (remove the plastic part and on the bottom of the metal tube attached to the gun there is a little screw, take that off and the cap comes off revealing the screw that connects it to the gun at the bottom). After that the battery stopped working. I tried to fix the barrel wobble once and pulled off the delta ring and the spring came out and wouldn't go back in right so I pulled it off and now tape the hand guard shut. Barrel wobble wont fix. after about a year of not using it I got a new battery but then it wouldn't fire. The motor was running so I thought it might be something inside the gearbox. After taking it apart i found out nothing was broken. I lost a spring from the gearbox and now it only shoots full auto. After putting it back together (upper and lower receiver wouldn't fit so I had to make the hole bigger for the rear pin) it still want shooting, no it was same as before, the bb's just weren't loading into the barrel. After removing the spring that pushes the hopup up close to the gearbox it started working again. I don't have a chrono so I don't know if it lowered FPS. Accuracy was just as crappy afterward.
-Better than mijer or super k guns
-Exact same thing as the Cybergun DMPS brand but about $85 cheaper.
-Now when the G&G I ordered comes in a have a practice dummy to dis/reassemble so I don't screw up anything if I ever Upgrade my G&G.
-Cheap (quality, but what do you expect from china?)
-For a beginner guns it has a lot of problems off the bat (I've only put between 10000-15000 rounds through it.) which, if you try to fix you may end up screwing up (This being my first AEG i didn't know to well what I was doing).
-The battery it comes with is a piece of s***
Overall: Not a great gun. Adequate for noobs but at the same time has a lot of problems which arn't good for beginners, experts won't even be looking at this page. If you say in your review you played airsoft for awhile and have had other guns like G&G, TM, ect, and that this one is better YOU ARE LYING. You will need a new battery if you get this gun which means another $26. It would also be a great idea to get a new barrel and hopup unit which means even more $$$. In the end you would be better off getting a combat machine or G&G affordable, they have the same crappy externals as this gun, but have good internals.
