This Classic Army X - Series is a great gun! but this review will not receive a full 5 stars right off the bat.
The body is a great construction, the metal is thick and feels solid, not like pot-metal or Dboys metal. This airsoft gun is metal where the real thing is - and plastic where the fiberglass etc would be. A personal pro is that the metal flash hider is dull orange compared to blaze orange. So if your field requires an orange tip, you are less likely to be spotted. The rail for the carrying handle is machined well and will fit many-many-many attachments with ease! The carrying handle is also great, solid and WILL NOT come off. Do make sure to oil the screw in which the site is mounted, sometimes it gets stuck moving left or right.
The rear stock, handle and fore grips are fiber-infused plastic, and feel amazing. Compare it to JG plastic and you will tell that these stocks etc could be beaten with a bat and survive!
The wiring in the weapon is also good, very soft but durable so you wont be creasing or breaking wires any time soon. Motor placement is excellent, the hand-grip is a bit bigger than normal to allow the motor to seat better.
Accuracy is a joke though, the stock barrel is hardly to brag about with .20's. Even with a 6.04 not much changed. BUT! You change to G&G .25's and you'll be shooting softball to basketball size groups at 150 feet in short burst. But the hop up is pretty decent, I wouldn't complain.
Rate of fire is really high even with the 400 + FPS spring and 8.4v set up.
DO NOT GO 9.6 WITHOUT SERIOUS UPGRADES. Mine stripped the piston. The motor is very powerful and the spring is very stiff, so you'll break something on a 9.6 volt like I did.
Trust me, if you are using this gun for outdoors, rig it to be accurate, not fast.
Has a military-style delta ring, so I fitted a 16.5 inch dragonfire rail on it - tis a nice add on.
The bolt catch though is somewhat weak, my bolt broke because the metal charging handle connects to the imitation bolt by a strip of paper thin plastic. Be gentle ok? Dont movie-style-rip-n-slam the bolt.
Taking apart the weapon is a pain, the mag-release button is not screwed in with a screw. Actually, its screwed into the mag catch, so to take it out, you have to push mag button past the body, and turn it... its complicated... you'll see... Accessing the gear box after that is relatively easy - speaking of which, reinforced gear box, 7mm gears, steel - high torque gears.... cant get much better.
ROF - 8.4v
Bolt set up
Piston + 9.6v
Accuracy with .20's and no change in barrel
