I bought this gun a couple months back. I own a real M-14 so when diciding which airsoft gun to purchase it was a no brainer. I'm going to "train" with what I would use in real life. Besides the M-14 slash M1A being the best all around battle rifle in real life it is also the best all around rifle in the airsoft world which pisses the M-16 fanboys off. The effective range for this gun is out to about 150 to 175 feet. 200 feet is pushing it but from what I've seen the average effective range of most M-16 airsoft guns is about 100 to 125 feet. Its not the greatest CQB gun but from 20 feet on out to 175 its hard to beat.
Currently I'm running 4 mid-caps and 1 high cap. I use the mid-caps for being a rifleman but when a support gunner is needed I switch to the high-cap, trying my best not to be cheap because you can be cheap with this gun running only high-caps.
I don't have any optics attached as of now and I don't need any. The iron sites are great they were created a the pinnacle of iron site technology and you can tell. Plus a person needs to now how to shoot through iron sites. If you can't shoot through iron sites then you suck as a rifleman.
Great all around rifle
400 fps out of the box
Accurate out to 175 feet
Not as heavy as the real M-14
