I got this gun yesterday so I can't give a long term reliability report but here's what I observed since unpacking the box. Yes, 2 mags and a real 8.4v 1100Mah Intellect battery. So using silicone oil, I swabbed the barrel, lubed the mags and fired about 1000 rounds. My was chrono'd from ASGI at 330fps. I am really starting to think fps doesn't mean much. This gun is great. Very accurate at 110 feet(longest bit of my yard). I removed the fuse and extra wire from the foregrip and my 9.6v 1400Mah nunchucks fit great. The ROF and trigger response is much better. The mags work good for hi-caps. After handling JG and Echo 1 G36C's I can say this is much better and much smoother sounding gun. The finish is not shiny looks really good. The stock is rock solid. Mags wobble a little. I would absolutely recommend this over any other G36C due to price and quality. Maybe the KWA is better but it's $100 more also. I am giving it 5 stars because it fantastic for the money. This is a good step up from the Chinese G36's. SRC does it again.
Accurate, yeah I am saying it again. I was very surprised at the groups this will shoot. Just clean that barrel really good. Mine took 9 wet patches before they came out clean.
Battery compartment tight till I removed fuse and extra wire.
