Product Information:
I bought this gun about 2 months ago and its pretty nice. I'm a beginner airsoft player but I've had experience with some other guns before. Using .25's the accuracy was pretty decent up to about 150ft, though like others have mentioned it could have been better with the stock tightbore, none the less the accuracy is quite a bit better than your average AEG. Rate of fire unlike everyone else said was decent; however, I was running an 8.4v battery so it's probably just me. I just thought that it would have a better ROF compared to other guns running 8.4v batteries but its pretty much the same. The gun itself, though "shortened" is still quite long, and its pretty heavy (good for realism, but hard to maneuver). There is one huge problem for this gun however, though it just might be mine. After playing for about 3 hours, the wires or something start to heat up so much that after I release the trigger while firing on auto, the gun will continue to shoot for about 3-4 seconds (quite a bit). While it was still under warranty I sent it back to Airsoft GI for repairs but the problem didn't change at all. I checked on airsoftretreat.com's forums and i was told that this problem was actually pretty common among G&G Soc16's so be forewarned.

Pros:
Nice accuracy
Good FPS
Front Rail System
Easy to disassemble
Aside from trigger issue, very reliable
Got some weight to it
Long barrel makes it a bit more accurate

Cons:
Trigger/Wiring issue pretty much ruined the gun for me (being a poor beginner I don't know if I can fix it, nor afford to have it fixed) HUGE PROBLEM. Heard it was present in other guns.
Got some weight to it
Long barrel makes it cubersome to move/aim quickly (though I understand the gun was not intended for CQB purposes)

Rating: 3 of 5 Stars! [3 of 5 Stars!]
