Alright this was my very first airsoft gun and it is awesome. My buddy got the blazing hog before I ordered this and when I felt and saw how realistic this rifle was... I was sold. I'll start from the butt to the muzzle.
The stock is decent, at least it gets the job done. There is about an 1/8 of in inch wobble to it- but what crane stock doesn't? The battery is kinda tricky to get in. You can either take off the entire stock (which makes putting the battery in difficult) or you can take off the back of the butt stock to put in the battery (the way your suppose to do it). The tabs that hold the rubber to the back of the stock are hard to get out... but I got it done without too much hassle. There are a lot of reviews about them breaking the tabs on accident (or on purpose).
The grip and trigger get the job done- no real cons/pros. The mag is actually pretty nice! I haven't fed BB's into it yet but I was pretty surprised and pleased with the quality of it! Very sturdy! The Bolt/Upper receiver is very solid and nice. It's built of really nice strong heavy duty plastic, so I trust this thing wont break anytime soon. The blow-back isn't spectacular but it def adds to the realism of the rifle. I look forward to impressing some people out on the field with it! The charging handle doesn't come back all the way like a real M4 but it does flip down the dust cover to expose the bolt/blowback. I thought that was pretty neat.
The rail IS EPIC. This thing is legit. I love it! I'm looking to get some magpul cover guards though because this rail is sharp! I saw a review for it on youtube and the kid said he had already cut himself...lol but this rail looks like it can take a massive beating and add just about anything you want on it, and with it's size you should have no problem! The iron sights are pretty nice, the one con that I quickly found out is the latch that holds the back sight in the "down position" can fall out. It's a very small metal "U" shape so that is a pain if you lose.
I have yet to fire this rifle yet but I will probably post another review talking about the accuracy, ROF, and distance.
PS- I didn't know this but ASGI gives you a quality product check in your box that consists of a visual check and a chrono! Mine was Chronoed at 410 FPS!
