||I did a lot of research before buying my first AEG and settled on this one. I was definitely not disappointed. The value is great. Airsoftgi has by far the best price on the web. As far as internals go, this has more metal parts than the Classic Army. It has steel gears and bushings, and everything else that should be metal is. Well, except for the spring guide. I might replace that and the hop-up bucking. The accuracy is very good on semi, but groupings open up a bit on full auto. The rate of fire is very fast with my 9.6v 1400mAh battery. I'd say it's around 800 or 900 rpm. The body is supposedly made of fiberglass, but it feels more like thick plastic. It's still very durable though. My friends all bought Echo1s and JGs and most of them have crapped out already after a couple of weeks. ASGI chronoed my gun at 370, but that seems a bit high. I'd say it's closer to 350. There are a couple of cons, though. First of all, the mags have had some trouble feeding. Every once in a while it'll skip a round, then fire two bb's the next shot. Also, the scope isn't exactly high quality. The eye relief is shallow and it's impossible to adjust it all the way. It still shoots way off to the right.
-high rate of fire (9.6v)
-package includes black flash hider
-rail on top of scope
-hop-up is a little weird. About once every five or six shots a bb will fly way right
-battery compartment is a beast. this thing has a pathetically small battery compartment. 9.6v 1400mAh Intellect nunchuck fits with some effort, though.
I would totally recommend this gun. The pros outweigh the cons easily. You won't be disappointed.
