i got this gun for my birthday. the gun is not that heavy, but when i put all my sniper attachments on (scope, bipod, ect....) you will start to feel it in your arms.i love this guns looks, the rails surpast my expectations by a mile, mainly because the people at shortyusa.com mislead me and said they dont carry this gun because the rails arent good quality.thats one of the resons i dont buy from them anymore! also ASGI customer support is insanly good compared to any other dealer on earth. about the barrel.... at some point, you are going to want to buy an aftermarket one peice barrel. to screws holding the 3 peices of barrel together are crap, and after having to retighten them almost twice every month it starts to piss me off. and to that person about his front of the outer barrel falling off...that happened to me to.but you know what, i freaking put it back on and tightened it! double sided tape works well fyi.this is the best quality of an m16 for under 200$ i think. 4.5/5 for this gun.
tons of metal
rails are great quality and very useful
completely upgradable in any way
mine came with a metal spring guide and a real gun style delta ring! (wasnt expecting that)
hop up is sort of weak (its not one of those you need to replace right away by any means)
YES, barrel wobble
had to use a carbide drill bit to drill out the steel pin in the flash hider :(
front sight is VERY difficult to remove (for a after market gas block)
not neccessary, but i recommend reshimming just for the heck of it.
BARREL WOBBLE! ( dont be incapable and fix it ya wus!)
