The MK43 is the standard machine gun for my team's Support and Demolitions Unit. We own 3 of these and they are unbelieveably useful for keeping the enemy supressed. This gun will carry ~4000 BB's in an auto or fire activated box magazine. Note that the magazine should not be changed in battle and to reload, just bring a 4000rd bag of .2's with you. I believe that all but the upper reciever cover, stock, and the handguard are made of metal. Features a decent metal bipod unit for providing mounting options. Has no rails so optics are out or the question. At the underside of the barrel is a rotateable ROF selector. This allows the user to change the rate of fire. Using a higher voltage battery will up the lowest ROF. It comes with a plug that is used to fix the rate of fire so that it will not increase/decrease. Hop -up adjuster is found when lifting the top cover, and lifting the bullet belt feeder. The unit is a metal gearlike wheel. TURN IT LEFT to raise hop up. The carry handle is much more durable than first thought of, but you should still carry it by the stock just in case. It weighs about 20 lbs so if you want to dual wield, make sure you can handle it. The FPS is actually over 400. This is great if you are helping a teammate plant a claymore or a landmine. One last detail: The mag is a bit akwardly placed, and it makes it easier for lefties to hold it, and when attaching, slide the switch on the bottom of the BLACK part of the mag to CONTINUOUS, this will only allow it to feed when you fire. use AUTO to feed BB's just to the end of the tube, then attatch to the nozzle.
Literally Full metal everything except the obvious.
Can take a 10.8v right off the bat, but i use a 9.6v 2000mah.
Comes with a bypass plug to fix the ROF knob.
Higher FPS than shown (about 423 was the max i got)
Mag is oddly placed.
VERY heavy so dont be cocky or you'll be sleepin on the job.
