For starters, I'm very impressed overall. I got the gun today (7/16/11) from UPS. The packaging from ASGI was very nice, it protected the AEG box very well. When I removed the lid of the bare faced box I had expected to see cheap white styrofoam, but inside it had high quality black protection, I'm not so sure what it was. Anyway, I took off the black layer over the product, and I found the AEG of course, a 8.4v battery, 1000 .20 gram bb's, a cleaning/unjamming rod, a 350 high cap mag, a speed-winder that goes on the side of the mag, and the charger. I picked the gun up and it is very solid with no weak points that I could see. The whole gun is made out of high quality plastic which surprised me since it's only $125. The worst part of the gun is the charging handle, which is decent. Then from there I loaded the high-cap and hooked up a 9.6v 1200mAh mini battery to test fire the gun myself. I took aim, and with the hop-up off I shot. The .2 gram bb's flew straight out of the barrel, and went exactly where I was aiming. The gun's max effective range is around 100-125 yards, with good accuracy. You could shot farther, but you'll have a hard time hitting your target. Also something I would like to add is that the ROF (rate of fire) is more than average, I was shocked to see how many bb's were flying out. (P.S. Thank you ASGI for the free poster of Maureen Chen. (: )
Great build quality
The side folding stock is very stiff
Decent Hi-cap mag
381 F.P.S. (may be a tad too hot for some cqc fields)
Light Trigger pull
Nice iron sights.
No side rail (but hey, it's only $125, and ASGI sells G36C side rails for $25 so if you wanted them you can have them)
The battery compartment can be a little tricky at first, but you'll get use to it.
The charging handle seems a little delicate, but shouldn't break unless you pull back the charging handle like a mad man.
