I bought this gun in response to a resurgence in interest for airsoft at my school. I wanted an all-purpose and reliable gun that would maintain high quality performance over a long period of time, with minimum maintenance required. I got what I wanted.
This G&G is a sturdy AEG that fires true and never lets up. The accuracy and power work excellently in my woodland battles. It is much lighter than a full-metal AEG. The plastic itself is of extremely high quality and will not break unless you take a sledge hammer to it. Really, this AEG made me realize there is no reason to buy a full metal, this nylon stuff they use in this G&G is phenomenal.
Plus, I'm pretty sure that the internals of this gun may be identical to those of $300 guns. This gun NEVER misfeeds. It's not a tightbore, but the bb's have relatively tight groupings nonetheless. The overall performance is reliable and solid.
In addition, it comes will fully adjustable front and rear sights, removable carry handle, metal hi-cap mag, sling mounts, a working charging handle, a motor adjustment screw, a fire selector switch that firmly clicks into place, and a solid magazine release.
The only problems I have experienced exist mostly around the stock. It is very hard to move back and forth and poses a lot of resistance in general. The important thing is that when you get the stock into your preferred position, it sticks with infinitesimal wobble, and you are good to go.
All in all, this has to be one of the best guns on the market when considering such a low price. You can easily compete with $300 guns with this $170 gun. It's a bit expensive for entry level, but if you're getting into airsoft and have the cash to buy this gun, I would totally recommend it. Just remember to buy a battery (my 8.4v works just fine), charger, bb's, and facemask and you are good to go. Since I've had my gun I've been through quite a few skirmishes, and as attachments I would recommend a red dot sight as well. Again, I absolutely recommend this gun.
Lightweight and sturdy
Comes with all the trimmings (i.e. charging handle)
Excellent performance overall, and room for upgrades as well
Overall the same gun as its $300 counterparts, just made of high quality nylon fiber.
The stock contains a lot of resistance to movement when you are sliding it in and out. However, this isn't really that big of a deal. After locking it in place, the stock has almost unnoticeable wobble.
