Product Information:
I had read so many good things about this gun I have to admit I was just a little disappointed. The build quality is good for the price, especially the body, but the black furniture is a bit underwhelming in quality. Very plastic feel to it. The hopup is probably not on par with the spring power of this gun. While it has the power to shoot .40s, the hopup absolutely cannot handle it; the bbs dive at about 40 feet. .25s scream out of this thing, but accuracy is an issue. I suspect .30s or .34s are ideal for it, but I doubt it will ever be a pinpoint accurate. Right now I'm getting 12 inch groups at 50 feet, which isn't exactly spectacular, to say the least. After firing 200 rounds of varying weights of bbs, I'm a bit underwhelmed.

All that being said, the gun has massive amounts of power and is a wood kit and a POSP scope away from being a showpiece. Think of it as the Mustang GT of snipers - what it lacks in refinement it makes up for with power. But it ain't no Ferrari.

This gun is mostly metal, but with some interesting and dismaying exceptions. The hopup chamber is all plastic. Not sure if that will end up being an issue or not. More concerning is the fact that the spring is mounted on a plastic guide in the rear. Of all the things to skimp on... if this breaks I will be very, very annoyed.

All in all this gun is more Dirty Harry than Obi Wan Kenobi. Rough around the edges, power-obsessed, but charming all the same. Unless you're on the receiving end.

Pros:
Lou Ferrigno Power
Richard Simmons Price
More metal than Ozzfest
Unique
Potential for cosmetic greatness
Nice magazine

Cons:
Accuracy
Hop up is the weak link
Paris Hilton furniture (sexy, but cheap)
