Product Information:
I don't own this gun but from what I've seen, felt, and experienced it's not really the uber gun that I was expecting. Don't get me wrong; the intimidation factor on this baby deserves a 5/5. Plus the fact that the box mag holds $15 worth of bb's and you can control the rate of fire from a slow 450~ish RPM to 800. There are certain cons and pros to this gun, and I'm sure most of the cons are inconveniences instead of performance issues, so if you REALLY want to take the role of a SAW gunner, and you have the money to spend, go ahead. I'm just saying, consider everything carefully before you buy it. Even the kid who owned this gun didn't use it for half the day and even resorted to using his GBB pistol instead when he got frustrated after fiddling with the box mag.

Pros:
+Intimidating
+Realistic
+High capacity
+Accurate to a degree
+Good range
+Adjustable ROF
+Much of it is metal, highly durable
+Bipods are not the best but very nice
+Actually quite a good balance to it
+Sights work nicely, very open, lets you see the trajectory of your bb's flight path

Cons:
-HEAVY. 20lbs is nothing to mess around with. Either make sure you're jacked, or you use the bipod frequently.
-Box mag is very, very finicky. You must obey its every will or else resort to a GBB pistol.
-FPS is NOT actually 360-380 as advertised, will settle to more like 340
-Gun itself is big, kinda loud, big orange tip, very easy to give yourself away with this gun
-Don't expect to move frequently with this.
-There are other guns out there that are cheaper and can be upgraded to have better performance. for example, get a $160 Echo 1 M16A2, slap on a $12 steel spring guide, reshim the gears, get a $20 foregrip, $40 ACOG, $35 Madbull tightbore barrel, $40 A&K 5000 round box mag, Systema Hop up bucking + SCS nub ($15), and you'll have a much lighter, more accurate, better ranged, higher FPS, cheaper gun in your hands.
