Got this weapon May 5th, 2010. I was really happy when I first got it and when I was playing in the field, it was an excellent rifle! The gun itself is not amazing material. It scratches really easily but it does feel hefty. When I got the gun, the stock would collapse if i pushed on it too hard, so I ended up changing out the stocks, which really sucked. The flip up sights were really nice. Notice I said were. After playing a game I accidentally dropped the rifle and the flip up sights broke in half which was very disappointing. Nearing September I was firing it in the feed and it started jamming then just randomly stopped shooting. I took a look at it later and the piece that pulls the bolt back to create the blow back fell down into the gearbox through a hole in the top and into the piston. I had to replace the piston, and the blow back now does not work. It never has really shot the same since, and if you disable the blow back the bolt catch also does not work. A really bad design for such a hefty price. Overall, I am not happy with the purchase after 6 months of owning the gun. While it does shoot, it's not a reliable weapon for that kind of price. Another comment to add is if you live in a humid environment, be prepared to clean this gun constantly. Nearly half the gun will rust up.
I would not recommend this gun for very active airsoft players. (I play every Saturday)
Overall, I give this a 2/5 for bad design, material, and price, but good aesthetics.
Rails are amazing
Orange tip is dulled so it's not noticeable
Selector switch is high quality
Flip up sights are decent
Bad build material
Poor blow back design
Flip up sights are not strong
Buffer tube is bad quality
Rusts so easily
Price is outrageous
