This is an excellent gun for the price. I bought it back when it was in the nice $210 range last Nov. (2009) and it has held me up well. The range is nice, but accuracy could be better. One of the problems I've had is after taking off the RIS system for accessing barrel, or just because, it doesn't screw back on and remain level with the RIS on top of the upper receiver. Another is the stock mag. the stock hi-cap is decent, but wobbles a load. But it is metal.
The shortened stock is awesome. It looks much different than some of the other people I play with. Also, the outer barrel is convertible, so it can get shorter, which is how I normally play, with an aftermarket flashider.
But then, about Mayish, the gun stopped working. Serious. It just up and stopped. Wasn't fuse, wasn't battery, so I go to professional help, and that isn't fun to a person like me, who builds everything on their own.
Other than that little stop, where it still is now, and the unability to get down to the gearbox, (which I've tried many times, and I can;t get in, because the stupid pin holding in the trigger, consequentially the last pin on the gun, isn't coming out.) I reccomend this gun. but you might just want to wait a while longer and get something like, KWA for +$50. Maybe more. Good gun.
