I just got another hi-cap for it and a madbull 6.03mm/// 363mm barrel for it and it was a beast... for about 1000 shots. The gearbox is frozen and i am just gonna replace everything inside because the wires are cut up and have 0.03 ohms resistance and the motor seems to have died. Pull the trigger and it makes a very feeble attempt to pull it to the first gear non-reversal slot.
anyway, i thought when i fixed it would work .... i forgot that this crap gearbox can't be repaired or upgraded past metal bushings.
THIS IS A GOOD GUN ONLY IF YOU WANT TO PUT METAL BUSHINGS IN IT STRAIGHT OFF. IT WAS AMAZING WHEN IT WORKED, NOW IM JUST USING THE EXTREMELY DURABLE EXTERIOR TO BUILD A CUSTOM GUN WITH. Im going to put in a m120 systema gearbox (maybe mod to m140), a magnum motor, and a 9.6v battery or maybe a LiPo since that setup works with one nicely.
same pros as my other review, DURABLE BEYOND BELIEF FOR AN ABS RIFLE
just remember that this is extremely durable even with being dropped, carried unsafely, and hidden behind a tree in a battle (i got bored and charged with my well r6 HEY ITS GOT LIKE 17 RPS AND IS ABOUT INTERNALLY THE SAME AS THIS BUT 7MM BUSHINGS AND LOWER TENSION SPRING)
did i mention that it is durable???
Oh and the piston compression is great, no leaks at all
you can shoot crosman bbs and hit targets from a long distance until the guns gearbox breaks (metal bushings will avert this crisis)
YEA IT DOESNT WORK AFTER LESS THAN 40000 SHOTS.... WHY CA, WHY!!!!!
GEARBOX IS MADE OF ...... RECYCLED ALUMINUM CANS??? THATS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE AND THATS HOW DURABLE IT IS!!!
BUY A JG OR A&K RIFLE IF YOU WANT A GOOD CHEAP GUN THAT LASTS LONG
I WOULD BUY ONE BUT I JUST LIKE THIS GUN'S BODY... (sounds funny huh) SO IM GOING TO UPGRADE WITH SYSTEMA AND OTHER INDESTRUCTIBLE PARTS (highly unlikely, but if it lasts longer than this, and i get my $400 worth, its fine with me
you would be just as well off buying a WELL r6 or r7 if you dont break the cheap body of it (my brother's stock on the r7 is almost broken off - ty to closet door rofl)
