I got this gun about mid-July (It is October at the time of writing) and I could not have been more pleased with my purchase. I Really wanted a CQB gun but knew that sometimes, more range is needed. This gun knew what I wanted, the longer barrel gives you that range needed for longer combat while the Crane Stock (that is the right name?) gives you the ability to change just how close you want and is great if you need to change depending on your arm length.
The Electric blowback is just....just...amazing, it make a nice metal sound when you shoot and while it is loud, is a great intimidation factor. Makes the gun sound MUCH more powerful! Also the mudflap is pretty legit, it says "Infidel" on the inside which is pretty cool. As well as a neat emblem on the magazine well. NOTE: I DO NOT KNOW IF THIS WAS JUST ME OR FOR EVERYONE BUT IT DOES NOT HAVE THE "Who's laughing now" CLOWN! IT HAS SOMETHING COOLER!
There are a few downsides I have had. The Crane stock can hold a nunchuck battery but with the wires in as well it gets hard to collapse the stock all the way without fear of damaging wires (Not that i ever need to) Some might find this a drawbrack. Another problem I had is that the thing you pullback that would open the mudflap and chamber the round, is slightly broken, it works, I can pull it back and it moves the slide (blowback thing) but a piece fell off and it will no longer lock in place, it is preventable by being gentle with it and not pulling it back every 5 seconds (like i did...it was shiny and new...)
This is my order:
Airsoft GI G4-A3 Blowback Version Airsoft Gun $199.00
Tenergy Smart Universal Charger $15.00
Javelin Gun Works 9.6V 1600mAh Nunchuck Battery $25.00
With some coupons and deals that were occurring, My total order came out to $213.07
This could not have been a better deal! I have a friend who spent $270 on a gun and stuff and is jealous of mine.
Very Hard Plastic (possibly polymer?)
Very Nice Stock, No Problems Minus the battery Thing.
Shoots Very Fast
Blowback is amazing
With The battery I Purchased, It lasts all of my games (3-4 hours, not constant use)
Great Beginner gun!
Great Mag size!
Battery is tight when trying to collapse stock all the way
Pullback thingy broke for me
One Sling Loop (I already had a 3 point Sling from a purchase so i just had to get a new one, not a really bad thing)
Mudflap has locking issues if you use it too much
The Hop-Up starts off all the way down, and takes quite a bit of fine tuning to get it to optimal range.
Rails are metal so they can get uncomfortable if you hold them with bare hands (nothing a grip or gloves dont fix)
Is a little expensive but you easily get what you paid for.
