ne of my sons a Flaming Hog for an early Christmas present. He is 10 yrs old and thought this would be a perfect first Airsoft gun for him. Little did I know I this was going to be my next #1 of airsoft guns to get on my list. Let me explain:
I have been playing Airsoft for many, many years now. I know quality, durability and most of all performance when it comes to an Airsoft Rifle/ Gun. When this rifle came in I opened the box and my eyes about popped out of my head the looks of this awesome gun. Before I even dared to pick it up I looked at it just to see if it passed my visual inspection test. It was perfect. If it even felt half as good as it looked I was in for a real treat.
I picked it up out of the box and I became as excited as a 15 year old boy. This thing is so sweet and is without a doubt one of the best airsoft rifles I have ever handled. I had a battery already charged so I through it in and went to my outside shooting range. I knew from ASGI that it only shot around 295ish out of the box and the FPS Certificate that came with it from ASGI read 293FPS w/.20BBS. I loaded some .20's and went to work. First shot took me by surprise as I forgot the Sound Amplifier was on. WOW IS THIS FRIGGIN' THING LOUD!!! I was beside myself how awesome it sounded. I tried it on full auto and this thing is a best among men. It is the fastest "Out of the box" airsoft guns I have ever shot. Consistently hitting 287-293 it was perfect. I shot at 3 targets @ 20', 50', and 70' and the BBS were lasers straight into them. I did not see no noticeable drop until 90' or so. Again I shot at different targets and quickly found out this gun is not neccessaryily just a CQB gun. It can be an effective compact field rifle itself.
I wanted to see how easy it was to dissasemble. I put it on the work table and was really impressed how easy it really was. Again another big plus! After that I assembled it and shot it some more. After about 500 rounds I finally realized whis is my sons and he is going to come unglued when he sees this. And than I realized HOLY MOLY THIS IS MY SONS!!!! I knew I had to have one of these and would not rest until I can get one for myself. I jumped on ASGI just to find out they just as of today sold out... I guess if my son can let me use his from time to time it might be ok until ASGI gets more in.
Conclusion - There is no question the Flaming Hog is without a doubt one of the most impressive Airsoft Guns on the market now from this Veteran Airsofter of 8 Years. I review Airsoft Rifles for 3 Websites and will most certainly be giving this gem from ASGI it's just credits in the future reviews. Some people maybe concerned about the somewhat low FPS, but I will honestly say it is not notiecable as much as you would think and the Quality, Durability, Performance make up for it and than some. I dont believe giving 10 rating at all. There is not such thing in my book, but I will give this Ripping Beast Of A Machine a solid 9.7 without second guessing myself.
Insanely FAST RPM (Rounds Per Minute)
Tight and Consistant FPS
Always got to have a con. No such thing as a perfect review. This one came close though.
Cable Management System in the Crane Stock needs to be a little bit more refined. Kinda cluttered.
