Product Information:
This should be a balanced review:
When I received the weapon, I had to assemble it, which made me a little scared as it seemed to only be able to assemble if you put the trigger assembly in first. The screws to hold it are already in the plastic body, and it comes with spares. It has 3 allen wrenches, 1 for the screws, 1 for the cheek guard, butt pad, and a few other things, and the third for the scope(I believe). The weapon is very solid once the allen screws are in, and it is, thus, a fairly heavy weapon for airsoft (8-10 lbs., although I believe this is a good weight for a weapon that is generally on the ground). This weapon has an adjustable hop-up, however the adjustment is by using an allen wrench, and the screw is inside the magazine well, right in front of the mag release. This is a downside, as it becomes difficuly to adjust in the field, along with the problem that, although it comes with an absolutely amazing bipod, the adapter that it attaches to that allows it to be held on the gun is veeeery loose. It wiggles roughly 20 degrees left or right. It will stay in there well, but it is not entirely stable. ALSO contrary to the video being shown by AirsoftGI, this weapon NO LONGER HAS THE HOLDING PIN. The holding pin in the bolt handle has been replaced by a holding screw, meaning that you no longer need to worry about the pin falling out and being lost forever, although for some reason the bolt handle still can from time to time go down while the bolt is out.

Pros:
-solid build
-roughly 8" picatinny/weaver rails on top over bolt
-magazine ejects by spring (which does not jam) when you release it, instead of needing to pull it
-comes with 2 magazines
-High FPS for price
-good, solid bolt action
-bolt does not open shell chamber (good if you ghillie your gun, so burlap does not enter the chamber and jam
-ambidextrous
-cheek rest and butt plate are adjustable (cheek plate screws on right side of gun, butt plate screws IN butt plate from rear)

Cons:
-magazine only holds 23 rounds, not 30
-bipod adapter is very loose, and I do not believe it can be fixed
-cannot fire as rapidly as you may think with the force required to both draw, and push, the bolt
-cheek rest is only plastic, you must cover it yourself if you want

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]
