Product Information:
I'm sorry, but this gun is crap from a reliability and durability standpoint. Like another reviewer said, anything that could go wrong did go wrong.

Blowback never worked. Not once. Instead of cycling, it would always just get stuck in the full open position.

Spring release lever came loose the first time I used it. While fixing it, I noticed that one of screws holding the gearbox together was broken off. Worse yet, it was broken off inside the thread so I couldn't replace it. This missing screw prevented the gearbox from properly sealing at that joint - I could literally press the gearbox tighter together whit my hands and the sound of its operation would change accordingly as the tolerances were closing up.

Hand guard tabs? Broken off the first time I touched them.

Set screw that holds the outer barrel in place at the hop-up - came loose and disappeared.

Set screw that holds the outer barrel at the front sight also disappeared. So the front sight slides freely anywhere it wants and the whole front end has enough play in it for the fore grip to come out of the gun and drop the battery.

Firing on semi-auto? Just forget about it.

The trigger linkage is weak and bends out of shape with use. It needs to be adjusted and bent back every few thousand rounds which causes additional stress and fatigue on the part and it's only a matter of time before it fails completely.

I have used this gun a total of four times and it has literally fallen apart in my hands. I'm not stupid. I know what I'm doing. I have four other airsoft guns that I regularly use. I just really wanted an L85 because I was fascinated by this weapon. I was so disappointed.

Pros:
Looks sick. This gun definitely turns heads.
Full metal.
Remarkably accurate - even more so with an aftermarket tigthbore


Cons:
The initial appearance of sturdiness is an illusion. My particular example gradually disintegrated before my very eyes over the course of less than a month.
