Well, I'm going to review this gun to the best of my abilities. This is going ot be difficult for reasons I'll adress later. Let's start with the good things:
The externals of this thing are incredible. I have never held a more solid airsoft gun, period. The level of detail is amazing, and it's built like a tank. Right in front of the rear sight, the words "US Machine Gun, Cal 7.62" are painted. It woudl be better if they were etched, but I can't complain. The bi-pod is a little cheap feeling, but overall it's sturdy. The pins holding the legs on fell out of mine, but I just put them back in and put some electricians tape over the holes, and that fixed it right up. The box mag is cool, and funtions perfectly. I have never had one misfeed or jam. I like the selective rof and the auto-winging box mag that winds when you pull the trigger. From a strictly asthetic standpoint, this is the best gun I've ever had the chance to use.
Now, on to the bad things. The first thing I noticed about this gun was the fact that the range was HORRIBLE. I mean, like 75 feet, and even then it was terribly inaccurate. For some reason, the hop up nub did not engage the bb unless it was turned all the way up, and then it made very little difference. The next thing was that the rof was awful with the rof selector mosfet hooked up and turned all the way up. So, I removed it and used the bypass connector they include with the gun, and that improved it a little bit.
In my first skirmish with it, it quit firing. Just like that, quit firing. No broken parts, no blown fuse, perfect wiring, but no movement in the gearbox. So, after dicking around with AirsoftGI for two weeks about it and getting no help whatsoever from customer service, I opened it up myself, put everything back together, and it fired. Well, that lasted about 200 rounds before it stopped firing again. I repeated that process half a dozen times, and finally got fed up with it because as far as I could tell, all the parts were fine. So, I had someone work on it. He managed to fix the problem with it not firing, but the range was still terrible, even with a new bucking and nub. Finally, I gave up and sold it for $225. Including the battery, I spent $450 on this thing, plus the $30 it cost me to get it worked on. So in total, I spent $480. So I ended up losing $255 for nothing.
However, I would not let this keep you from buying this gun. I'm sure I just got a lemon. I just really wish AirsoftGI would have been a little more help to me, because I lost $255 because of a faulty gun they sold me. They really dropped the ball here.
Good quality body
Awesome box mag
Good ROF with no rof selector mosfet and a 9.6v
This thing was completely ****ed up when I got it, so I can't even say much about how it performed. All I know is the one I got was garbage.
