I just got this gun this morning, in a nice UPS box sitting in my garage. First things first.. this gun is HUGE!!! Next, let me say that Airsoft GI has satisfied me yet again with the speed and quality of the shipping job. the gun and the other items were all packed neatly and securely within a larger box, and i got the box within a week of my e-check clearing, which is amazing with standard shipping and the fact that i live in Iowa.
This gun is a beast. All the parts are metal, except of course for the stock and the grip, which aren't on the real steel either so no bust. only thing is it would be cool if the fixed stock wasn't a hollow shell but had a cavity in a more solid stock. oh well no problem with it, just would be nice. Also please note, this gun is HEAVY!!! just playing around with it in my house my arms started to get tired.
The first thing I've already done is take off the orange tip that comes screwed on, but instead of putting on the included extension piece that is shown in the pictures, i put on my GEMTECH Blackside Mock Silencer from my MP5K on the end and it looks awesome. i also love the GEMTECH because it adds a nice punching noise to the sound of the gun and makes this gun that much meaner. and boy does this gun sound meaner than hell. i fired a few shots off a quick charge about 150 ft to a hay bale i have in my backyard, and not only were the shots extremely fast and the gun sounded like it could rip me in half, i hit every single shot! I'm waiting for the battery to fully charge now then i really give it a test.
Like every other review besides mine says, this gun is heavy...
on that note, i recommend getting a sling, but you are going to need to buy a forward sling mount for this gun because it doesn't have on on it.
I also bought two D-boy high cap mags for this gun in addition to the one it comes with. the D-boy mags look almost identical and fit snugly in the receiver.
everything that should be metal, is metal!
very sturdy build... no wobbles no creaks
tons of rails on top for optics, round fore-grip is very comfortable.
fold-up iron sights are very high quality
working charging handle and forward assist button.
Heavy - for those of you who like that for realism
Good ROF - not blistering but good enough for as fast as this gun is
included barrel extension has two additional thread types on it... not sure what size/ direction they are but they are there.
Magazines fit in securely and don't pop out.
Battery is small but is relatively good quality - good cells and the cables are fabric wrapped instead of plastic coated
Heavy - for those of you who don't like hefting a gun around all day
Magazines sometimes are difficult to get in... just something that needs to be learned.
ROF - not blistering fast, but for $200 can you really complain?
Battery isn't a very big one
Would be nice if the charging handle pulled all the way back... just a thing that i have
the stupid orange tip that is put on from factory looks like crap and is impossible to get off without breaking... but once you get it off you have access to a 14-mm CCW thread to attach the included extension shown in the pictures (which is painted orange on the end, for those of you who are interested in safety) or a barrel extension of your choice.
All in all i give this gun a 5 star rating because the gripes that i do have with it are extremely small and can be easily fixed for the most part. i highly recommend this gun to anyone looking for a cheap, high quality DMR rifle.
Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
