For all of you who fear the possibilities of me not being a verified buyer I would like to inform you I bought this weapon from a local retailer.
I am doing a PERFORMANCE REVIEW ONLY. Everything not performance related will be listed in pros/cons
I or a close friend of mine has used this gun every weekend at outdoors airsoft match. We've come to know this gun quite well and are prepared to write a review. To begin,. I chrono'ed this at 423 avg w/ .20g BB's. That's prefect for the outdoor fields our team plays at. On top of that this gun seems to have ridiculously good accuracy. I thought it would be awful, but it's shooing just as well as my KWA M4. Honestly, that kind of pissed me of since I paid so much more for the other. However, the accuracy isn't consistent all the time. Occasionally you'll get some very inaccurate shots here and there. Its not often though and hasn't affected game play. Shooting is for the most part consistent, but recently there have been problems with the selector switch not changing the firing mode on the gun. Thankfully safety still works, but its sometimes stuck on semi. Keep in mind this occurred after about 5 months of usage, and is an easy fix. The motor seems to be somewhat quick for what is expected to be an OK rifle. It shoots a bit faster than my friends Echo1 G36C.I haven't had a chance to find out the actual BB's per Second, but it's about average. The magazine that came with it feeds quite well actually and fits snugly into the rifle unlike many AK mags. As for jamming, I've only had it jam once out of the many many matches I've been to (Once or twice a week for almost six months now). Overall I'd say it's actually a good gun. It may not have all the best parts (and the stock is utter shit) but it shoots hard, it's (usually) reliable, and ,for some hell of a reason, it's very accurate. Don't forget to take good care of your weapon and your weapon will take care of you. Lube is a must (one drop in chamber at least before and after games).
Shoots quite hard.
Hop up may not be name brand but it works
Gun is robust, sturdy
sights are eye friendly and effective
battery size lets you fight for many hours
Rails are everywhere
AK parts are readily available and therefore cheaper hen say an AUG part
I would write more about what it came with but it was so long ago i can't quite remember everything it came with. I still have the mag though and it works great.
Stock on the gun is nice but it doesn't fit without some aide. Took me a bit of work. If you want I'm sure you could buy a stock for pretty cheap too
Selector switch is finally breaking down. I can fix it but the problem is recurring now. (got to open it up)_-- Keep in mind this is after a LOT OF HEAVY USAGE
Heavy. After a hours of running and flanking you find yourself running a bit slower then you should
Rail covers are very cheap (and useless thankfully)
Overall I'd give this gun a four out of five. Besides the stock I really haven't had an issue with it until after a lot of usage. And every gun will start to wear down at that point anyways. I never liked JG.. at all.. but his gun will always be an exception. It's not the best, but it's definitely good. I'd say great but I had to put on a different stock. And considering the price. HA! I could make it the best with the money I saved!
