I've had a version of this gun for quite some time. I think it's been almost a year now and I love it. I have the SOC 16 version of this gun, so i know most of the gun by heart. The reason why I'm writing about this one is because half of my team has it. 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 wood 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 wood, 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.
Giant battery space.
Crisp trigger pull
Lack of aftermarket parts to trick the externals out with.
no scope/sight mount. or any rail system for that matter.
Over all, Fantastic weapon system
