I received this gun in November of 2009. Now, 6 months later, I have to say that I have not touched the internals and it works as well as it did back when I pulled it out of the box. This is due to the high quality of G&G products. They obviously work very hard to have the reputation as one of the finest in the field.
Now, enough ass kissing, and lets talk about what you'll receive.
In the absolutely lovely Styrofoam, you receive the gun, a 450 round magazine, a cleaning rod, barrel wrench/compensator wrench, a tool to adjust your forward sights, and a well written, well bound instruction manual with a bunch of nice pictures.
The gun has a plastic receiver, with polymer grip and butt stock, like an issued rifle, and has true to life delta ring and plastic handguards. Rear sights are very accurate and highly adjustable. The working bolt handle, moves to show the hop-up unit hidden where the bolt would be. Metal trigger, fore sight, rear sight aperture, and outer barrel, as well as metal sling mounts
I personally had no trouble with integrating this into my loadout, as it shot very precisely straight from the box, and there was no real need to adjust the sights. Using a 8.4 volt, 3600 mAh battery, I would estimate the gun shoots at least 15 bb's to the second, at 350 fps. On semi-auto, the trigger unit is built to a good enough standard that you can shoot about as fast as your fingers can pull without any sudden stops due to poor alignment, like I have had with cheaper guns like Cyma.
My biggest peeve with the weapon, actually has nothing to do with the gun itself. The manufacturer should have made, as well as this, an M16A3 variant (removable carry handle). I have spent more money attempting to create a replica of an A3/A4 style gun, than I did on the original gun itself.
Overall, a great gun for any airsofter, beginner, or somebody who wants to tinker with it and make it their own.
