Product Information:
A beautiful clone of the TM, the gun is solid as a rock right out of the box. I would also like to point out for skeptics about the internals that I was extremely impressed with the quality. If you're familiar with the version 2 GB (which 80% of everybody should be) you are going to love the Ver. 8 GB!!! From what I have seen the internals are all Ver. 2 but the Tappet plate I am not too sure about. Stock this gun has steel gears, very nice piston and piston head w/bearings, chrome plated cylinder, steel spring guide(no bearings), beefy gear box, good sealing cylinder head, and a very well thought out design. For example with M4's the hand grip is only held on by at least 2 screws well with this gun the motor hand grip is actually held on by two screws that go directly into the metal body! It does have 4 screws that help anchor the GB, no need to take out the magazine catch to release the GB either. Another cool thing, when I cracked it open I was surprised to see the GB lightly coated in grease where it needed it. Although I still cleaned it and relubed it, the grease was only applied where it is needed. A side note for bushing upgrading, use the Echo 1 bushings meant for Echo 1 i.e. the bushing's with the thin lip. I have a very good and cheap method for install them, if anyone is interested on how I did it shoot me an E-mail at [email protected]

I honestly can't say enough good things about this gun, I have yet to skirmish with it but I can honestly say I like this gun better than my Zombie Killer.

Finally after all that rambling:
Steel gears
strong internals
well thought out design
beautiful finish
full metal body
Rock solid
M4 magazines fit better in this than they do in M4's, they do not move AT ALL!!!
good for average height players
3-round burst is sexy!!
included battery is Ni-MH
there's more but I can't think of anything else

gotta take the bad with the good:
It's a little hard at first to get used to the sights
No rails
needed to use a bench vise and a 16" pipe wrench to remove the flash hider, the threads were covered in a rubbery loc-tite compound
Bi-pod is nice but sits too high for the prone position
can't fit a 9.6 stick battery in the handguard
