||First off. . .
i ordered from airsplat, which probably wasn't the best idea in the first place, so i got about what i expected.
the gun feels sturdy, and solid, which is good, but when it came to actually shooting it, it really let me down. the hop-up does nothing. when it's off, it shoots up a little. when it's on, the bb goes literally straight up after about 60 feet. the range with the hop-up off was about 120-140 feet... not bad. but the ROF almost made me cry. it was down near 400-450 rpm. mine came with some extras, since its the double eagle brand: a crappy light, a crappy scope, and a pretty good laser. (though it took some work to get it zeroed) the battery is an 8.4v 1050, or 1100 mah stick, which lasted a long time in the gun i had before which took a stick batt. but in this, it lasts about 15-20 minutes. i have heard stories about some people having great experiences with this gun, others who had a similar experience to what i had. i personally am just sorry it doesn't perform as well as it looks.
*****one of my friends let me use his small type 9.6v 1500mah battery, which you can hold to the side of the gun by folding the stock around it. this worked well. it upped the ROF to about 600-700 rpm, and lasted for about an hour.*****
- looks & feels great (if you're just holding it, not battling)
- good mag cap.
- (double eagle version comes with some extras...)
- good fps
- iron sights are good
- repulsive hop-up performance
- snail-like ROF
- stock battery size/performance
- very plasticy
- battery hard to put in
overall, this would be about 1.5 stars, but since you can't choose that, i'll round up.
maybe i did just get one of the bad ones, but if i were looking for a gun with a folding stock for a relatively low price. . .i would go with the [ECHO 1] or [JG] G36C, or the [JG] MP-5(w/ sliding stock)
i play with a JG M16-A1 (the vietnam version), which i would marry if i could, but i also just like the M4/M16 line because they rarely let you down.
