Product Information:
I've had this gun for about eight months now, and overrall, I'm moderately impressed. The best thing about it is the price-I paid 250 for mine, but that's without the case. You're gonna spend more than twice that for the CA version, which just doesn't perform well enough to justify it. HOWEVER, keep in mind that you're gonna spend some money fixing it up to skirmishable stats. First off, there is a brass connector that runs from the trigger to a micro switch in the gearbox. This is too long, and it will get stuck causing the gun to fire uncontrollably until you take out the battery. To fix it, just clip the tab about 3mm. Also, there are some compression problems within the gearbox. If you open it up it's pretty easy to see what they are, just move the piston housing forward and maybe replace the o-ring and everything's good. However, the biggest problem is the crappy mag. My advice is to go ahead and order the smaller CA one along with the gun and just scrap the A&K mag as soon as you get it. The thing only works when it feels like it, misfeeds constantly, is flimsy, and bulky. It's another 100 bucks, but trust me, a CA mag will take this gun way closer to it's full potential. Other than that, it's a great gun. I wouldn't recommend it for you 13 year olds screwing around in your backyards because of the weight (it's just pointless, unless your compensating for something) but for the serious MILSIM praccticioner, this is a great support weapon that will rival the other CA's on the field with a little TLC.

Pros:
Decent FPS and ROF
Sturdy (except mag)
Shoulder rest on stock
Metal construction
Intimidation Factor
PARA model has rail for Red Dot etc...

Cons:
Worthless Mag
Needs some work out of the box
Heavy (good sling should take care of this)
Bi-pod is pretty flimsy-may need replacing

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