After reading many reviews on various M9s i was convinced that this was the best one on the market. At first the gun was amazing. It was fairly gas efficient, had a super crisp blowback, and a solid metal body, the only problem was a little mag wobble, which wasn't a big deal at all. After a month or so it failed on me. I've only used it in about 3 games, and the trigger spring snapped when i was firing it. I believe i just got a defect, because all the other reviews never stated this problem. I easily found a replacement spring, but getting the broken one out was not an easy job. I look EVERYWHERE for an instructional video on how to disassemble the thing, but couldn't find one, so i had to use that cheap drawing on the back of the manual to guide me to completely disassemble the gun. I had to open up the whole trigger assembly and after around 2 hours of figuring how things go i repaired the gun. After that it worked fine, it was just a hassle to teach myself how to disassemble it.
WORD OF CAUTION: if u ever decide to take off the grips be careful! hold down the trigger bar as u unscrew the right side or you will lose the trigger bar spring. it'll fly out and be almost impossible to find.
if it weren't for the problem, i would give it a 5/5
good fps (actually made my friend bleed at point blank)
Good weight to it
crisp, clean blowback
Solid metal body
double action trigger
realistic field stripping
High capacity and efficient mag.
little mag wobble
safety isn't too great, feels like it could come off with enough strength
broken trigger spring
