Let me first start off by saying that I won this gun during the Airsoft Gi, “Season to Remember Giveaway.” I bought a KWA m4 and then a little message popped up saying that I had won this gun. I was ultra thrilled that I had actually “won” something. I couldn’t wait for my m4 or my sniper rifle to arrive. I had always wanted a sniper rifle but I had never planned on buying one. I immediately began researching this gun. My friend has the same gun and I was always in awe when I ran into to him during a battle. He would only fire one shot and hit me from about 125ft away. I was a little skeptical when I found out that it was Chinese and made by A&K but I was very excited nonetheless. It arrived 3 days later.
When I first opened it, I found that it didn’t have a manual and that the front sight was not inserted. I quickly figured out how to install it. The gun was solidly built. I then began to test the gun. It wasn’t “sniper” accurate but I was easily able to hit all targets that I wished to hit on the second shot that I fired at them. The range was further than most AEGs but I wanted a little more. I adjusted the hop-up and continued to shoot. The hop-up made a little difference. The BBs went about 10 feet further with the hop up on. The gun was firing at about 400 FPS.
Many reviewers complain about “how hard the bolt is to cycle. ” Grow some muscle! It’s pretty easy for me and I am 15.
The only complaints I have about this gun are that it isn’t totally accurate. However, it will hit stuff better than most AEGs. I’m going to fix this by putting in a tightbore. It also could use a new hop up. I’ll probably replace that. Other than that, it’s perfect.
I really like the construction. It is very solid and feels like it can take a little beating.
I am a believer in the idea of: you can’t get a ‘Call of Duty’ sniper rifle where you will peg people from a long distance away. I’m not going to put a scope on this gun. I don’t think that airsoft guns are accurate enough to put use scopes.
All in all this is a good gun. Don’t expect to be some awesome sniper dude. If you want to do that here is what I recommend: Buy an M16 (or any gun with a long barrel) from a good company like KWA, or G&G. Put a 6.01 in it. Use .28-.30 gram BBS. Upgrade the spring so that you get about 400 FPS with that ammo. Put a good hop up in it. And there you have it. It will be more accurate than most other guns out there.
This is a good gun and with the above mentioned upgrades it will shoot perfectly. I am thrilled that I won it.
It also looks really cool.
I play on an official team with mostly adults. I can't wait to see how this will perform!
ROCK ON Airsoft GI!!!!!!!!!!
Inexpensive! $150? That's not too bad for a gun like this. (well, I did win it for free.)
It's also pretty sick looking
A few upgrades required.
I am biased against A&K
Made in China
