I've had this gun for quite some time. I think it's been almost a year now and I love it. I know most of this gun by heart and i'm in love with it. I am the only one on my team with this gun, but the rest of them have the full sized. They're all jellous of me. This one's lighter, shorter, easier to manuver, and has vertualy the same range, accuracy, and fps. We think that this is one of the best airsoft guns in existance. First of all, price. For something that has rock solid internals, easy to find replacements, and real steal and polmer finishing, you can't beat it. Nothing even comes close. Second, performance. This gun can hit anything. We play on a hill that has a 250 yard "bowl" in the top. with this thing, i've been able to pick people off all they way on the other side. That's two and a half football fields people!!! Of course it wasn't a direct shot and i kinda had to lob them in, but still... that's some range. It also has a crazy ROF w/ a large, 4200 mah 9.6v battery. besides what some people think, the type of battery that you use doesnt at all effect the FPS. I don't know where people come up w/ these crazy ideas, but they're not true. mah is milliamps. a basic way to determine which battery is better is by the mah. 1mah roughly=1 shot. anyways, i go through the 470 round mag in about 7-9 seconds of straight firing. Maybe even a little less.
Amazing external finish.
Full metal and heavy polmers, could be seen as a con if you don't like having a heavy gun. Personaly, i like the weight. It makes me feel comfortable that i have something reliable in my hands and not some light, cheap piece of crap.
High-cap mag holds 470
Giant battery space i have to put a sock in behind my 9.6 4200 mah battery to keep it from moving around!!!
Crisp trigger pull is extremely nice.
Can't remove orange tip.
Mine came w/ the forward iron sight bent slightly to the left, but others came normal so it was just a small defect.
Overall, it's a Fantastic weapon
