When I bought this gun knowing that it was gonna be cheap plastic I took it out of the box and the plastic was pretty strong and well built. The only cheap plastic was the stock but I am looking in to getting a new one. It shot great and even with a 8.4v had a high rate of fire. The only bad things about it are that the front sling attachment wobbles and that the metal over the hop up switch looked as if it were scatched, also I took the reciever off and polished the barrel to increase the ROF and it was very hard to put it back on.
-battery is easy to get in and out
-some metal looked scratch
-hard to get back together
