I waited to write a review until after I fielded this gun in a large skirmish/event and all I can say is wow! It has exceeded my expectations in about every regard. The quality of the gun combined with the great performance (accuracy, range, rate of fire) make the 255$ dollar price tag fully justified. It's range and accuracy are easily comparable to any AEG firing around 350 fps. With the stock extended and the vertical grip down, the mp7 shoulders and handles extremely well. It is solid, compact, and maneuverable.
I live in Ohio and used this gun on a rainy, cold, windy, 50 degree day with absolutely no negative effects from cool down. It chrono'd between 300 and 310 fps using propane and .25g bbs. I would assume it will chrono higher in warmer weather. There were a few skeptics telling me that it wouldnt function due to the cold weather. I was told I would be back at the car reaching for my back up AEG 20 minutes after the game started. THEY WERE WRONG.
to sum up this gun using only 3 words I would choose these: badass, solid, fun. If I sold every other AEG and gas blow back I own, this would be the last one to go.
LOUD! This gun is about double the volume of any other GBB i have ever heard. It has a distinctive roar on full auto that will set you apart from the quiet AEGs around you. Your other gas pistols become neutered the second you pull the trigger on this gun.
Very high quality product! Everything looks great, feels great, and functions great.
The magazine is top notch as well. I averaged about 2.5x 40bb fill ups before running out of gas, even in cold weather. Nice!
The best part? The mp7 is FUN! I dare you to fire one of these beauties on full auto without cracking a smile! WARNING! : may cause maniacal laughter!
LOUD! This gun is about double the volume of any other GBB i have ever heard. Your other gas pistols become neutered the second you pull the trigger on this gun. (yes it is both good and bad)
EXPENSIVE! After buying this gun and 3 extra mags you are looking at around 400 bucks. ( or less if you use your discount coupons!)
While this gun is easy to use and very fun, I still would not recommend it to a new player. 40 rounds in a magazine is about 3 seconds of fun for a trigger happy airsofter. Controlling your trigger time down to 3 or 4 round bursts makes it much easier to manage but not everyone will find it suitable to their playing style.
and one last thing. This gun is SMELLY! Firing it close to your head will reward you with some gas blasting back into your face like your gun just farted on you.
