Product Information:
im a big fan of cymas and have owned the previous version of this gun so here are the main differences between the two versions:
the old version had a TM style breakdown where there were four screws to remove the barrel, this one is a vfc clone so one pin removes the barrel
the old version had a weird charging handle with a weak spring, this one has a better designed charging handle with a much stronger spring
the old version had a plastic spring guide, poor motor and a glass fuse, this version comes with a metal spring guide, a car type fuse and a higher quality motor
the old version had a plastic hop up and the new version has a metal hop up
the old version was made of questionable metal while the new version is entirely high quality metal excluding the front sight which is potmetal
unfortunately, the old version had a crooked rear sight which was annoying if you didnt have a scope mount, on the new version it is only less crooked but still crooked
also on both versions there is a pin to keep the flashider from unscrewing (14mm negative), the pin is glued in and in both versions i had to saw it off with a metal saw

the internals on this gun, even though improoved, are still mediocre and i recommend a re-lube, re-shim and replacement of the piston and spring. after doing this you can run a 10.8 volt battery no problem.
dont know about stock fps or rate of fire since i immediately replaced the spring and piston and run a 10.8 volt battery

overall a great gun for the price and even better if you do a little work to the internals

Pros:
decent externals
good quality polymer funiture
threaded barrel (14mm -)
folding stock
mount for scope rail
decent internals
car type fuse way better than glass tube fuse
metal hop up
dissasembly much easier than previous version
gun looks really good with noveske
charging handle makes nice sound
motor grip actually matches the hadgaurds color
gun fits up to a 12 volt battery
top receiver cover is hinged and is spring loaded (makes putting in battery easier)

Cons:
gap in between upper and lower handgaurd is a little bigger than pictured
polymer is a little rough feeling
front sight is potmetal and i recommend replacing it with a real steel front sight (some modification to barrel required)
couldnt get provided magazine to fit (i run midcaps so i dont care)
pin has to be sawed off to get access to threaded barrel
rear sight STILL crooked (get scope mount)
upper portion of reciever has a strange matte finish (should be more shiny than matte)
rear sling mount clangs against skeleton stock as always with skeleton stocks
gun is a little heavy for its size

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]
