This is a very good replica all around, especially for an intermediate player looking to get into the world of high end AEGs. It has a realistic weight and feel, and it shoots accurately and consistently. The ROF is really good on an 8.4v, and even without a tightbore the accuracy is still really good. The hop up holds it's setting well, but is a little stiff at first. The externals are perfectly true to that of the real deal, except for the trademarks and the Safe - Semi - Auto trigger group, which would make it an M16A3. It shoots at about 340 FPS, and maximum effective range stock is about 150 - 175 feet, very good for a gun this economical. G&G did not cut back on the performance of their affordable series like CA did, and these are probably the best low price AEGs on the market now. Get one.
The handguards are difficult to remove
