I recently got 2 of these guns for myself and my fiance as our first airsoft guns. Let me start by saying you do get what you pay for with these, but that's not entirely a bad thing. You do get a cheap, all plastic gun prone to feed & magazine problems, but that hardly makes me any less excited to use these.
Out of the box I was impressed that there was this much of a gun for $25 bucks. I wasn't quite expecting a perfectly scale replica because of the price, but that's basically what you are getting. They have a really good weight to them and feel nice when fired. The button to adjust the stock on one of them busted the first time we pressed it, and the "shells" (magazines) get stuck in the mag well on occasion, but are easy enough to pull out. The iron sights are literally flush with the receiver body making them especially difficult to use normally, but sighting along the barrel is easy enough.
Now onto the good stuff. These suckers hurt, and shoot damn straight. They have a hop-up but we didn't even touch ours as they seemed perfectly tuned out to about 50 feet, which is great for where we play. The slide is hard to pull back at first but you get used to is quickly, and you can definitely feel the power in it when you pull.
All around super happy with the buy, wish the stock adjustment hadn't popped off on the one but already played about 4 games with em and have been having a blast. If you're like us and don't have the cash to stretch into the AEG range, this is a great gun to get for personal play. I don't imagine it would compete at field events super well but for 6 friends in the woods it's a great buy.
mags tend to jam
Iron sights are just about useless
