I have had this gun for about 3 weeks now, and have used it in 3 games, and all i have to say is wow. this is an amazing looking and performing rifle, right out of the box. It shoots around 405fps stock with .2s, and has a range of 200+ feet. Although a lot of people complain about the motor, i have no problem with the rps. With a 9.6 battery the rps is pretty decent, shooting around 11 rps with the stock motor, which is all i really need. This weapon is also very vercitile, with a 6 position folding stock which is just freaking awesome haha. It is also very easy to clean the barrel, since it disassembles, just like the real one. The magazine feeds great, and it accepts regular m4 mags. The magpul sticker is a nice touch. however i don't like how they don't have the full trade marks like the other masada on the market, but what are you gonna do. The folding front sight is also really nice, i hated how on m4s you'd always have the front sight in your way, with the masada, its no problem. It also comes with a detachable rear sight which is a nice alternative to a red dot.
Another thing i really like is the bolt catch. Whenever you pull that thing back and let go it gives you a very satisfying feel. Pulling back the bolt also reveals the clear hop up unit, which has a sliding mechanism instead of the traditional wheel, which works fine. This gun also has a full metal (aluminum) upper reciever, and outer barrel, and a thick, plastic lower reciever, which makes the gun very sturdy. The bolts holding them together are very tight also, ensuring that you won't lose any on the field. Oh, and just to clarify, the gun CAN fit a 9.6v mini in the front hand guard, and i admit, it is a little tricky at first, but u just have to bend the wires right and it'll fit.
Unfortunateley, my masada didn't come with the aggressive compensator that was offered, but thats not a big deal really, since there are thousands of better after market suppressors and barrel extensions that i can get.
Basically, if you are looking for a gun that has decent stock performance, and a gun that stands out from the other m4s on the field, this is your gun. however, if you're looking for a really good, top of the line bang for your buck airsoft gun, throw in an extra 10 bux and get the kwa 2gx m4. However, i am very pleased with my buy, and can't wait to pimp this thing out with accessories.
