I've had this gun for two/three months now. I have to say, you can REALLY feel the quality of the gun's body and barrel.
The lower receiver, hand-guard, and stock are all made of a scratch resistant plastic/polymer that has a texture that makes it really easy and comfortable to hold. There were very slight seams in the plastic that I shaved off with a knife. The stock could be sturdier, but it gets the job done. If you grab the stock when it's contracted, it will extend from the weight of the gun.
The upper receiver is a sturdy aluminum that is painted black. It is just a durable paint and not a real-steel gun coating, so solvents like rubbing alcohol will alter the finish and bleed off some paint. Otherwise, it's probably the best metal body you can get at this price.
It comes with a P-Mag like in the picture, although it's really not the best magazine ever. It's just a cool-looking plastic magazine and it holds a bit less than other high-caps. The nice thing is that it looks so f-ing hardcore and the little window in the side gives you a heads up on your ammo. It wobbles a tiny bit in the well (unlike my G&G steel mag, so no the mag-well is not to blame).
The outer barrel is solid steel, I feel like it belongs to a real gun. The outer barrel has a quick-change feature that works like the real thing, but I haven't tried it yet. Supposedly you could change the front end of your gun in a snap. The flash hider is a bright orange like the picture. I haven't tried taking it off at all, but it would probably be simpler because of the steel, one-piece barrel.
The gearbox and inner barrel leave A LOT to be desired. I used a 10.8v and the gears stripped by the end of the day XP. The fps was nice and high, allowing me to use 0.25's, but the inner barrel didn't seem to be a tight enough bore to make the bb's keep a straight path. The hop up, completely turned up, was just enough hop for my 0.25's.
If you're a sharp-shooter like me, you'll want to upgrade this gun's barrel and hop-up. If you plan on using a high-voltage battery, you definitely want to upgrade the gears. But seriously, this is a BEAUTIFUL gun and if you get it you will be the most bad*ss member of your team, guaranteed.
Solid, generally awesome construction
Absolutely amazing looking, feeling gun
It's a MASADA, what more could you want?
Gearbox and barrel are as stock as it gets.
The rear sight is a POS, if you're an iron-sights kinda guy, then buy a separate one with your order.
