Decent weapon if you're a big German fan like I am but as far as getting the job done it lacks. But it is a great collectors item built almost to a T like the real rifle. But if you're looking for a good sniper rifle I'd go with something a little more powerful. The way the bbs fit into the shell messes up the accuracy big time. Because as it comes out of the shell it has one spin then the hop up tries to manipulate that spin to another and you just got a big mess. Unless you plan to use .40g bbs I wouldn't buy this unless you just wanna collect it.
-Real ejecting action with the shells
-adjustable hop up
-very sturdy. I dropped it flat on the concrete once and all that chipped was the rear sights corner
-VERY realistic looking abs plastic. dark wood grain. my favorite appearance feature of the gun
-low powered (about 300fps but even then its not accurate)
-Only comes with 5 shells. I bought more and used stripped clips. Helps alot to have more shells
-Poor accuracy. Anything less than .40g bbs will fly away. I've had little success with .30s
-FAKE cleaning rod. I unscrewed it all exited, its only a metal piece of about 5-6in. long so NO cleaning rod is included in this package
-Shells after a lot of wear will cease to catch in the bolt. Then you need to either open and close the bolt repeatedly til it catches or find a screwdriver
-THIS IS A BIG ONE. IF you place the bb too deep in the shell, when you fire you'll hear a pff sound meaning the shell didn't fire out. To fix this find a small screwdriver and enter from the back of the shell and push the bb out. WARNING!!!!!!!! DO NOT LOSE THAT BLACK RUBBER WASHER IN THE BACK OF THE SHELL!!!!!!!!!!! That washer is what compresses the air to force the bb out. If you lose it, the bb will fire out of the shell but only about 5 FEET from the muzzle.
