This gun is great. Takes a day of shooting to get everything fully functional and warmed up. I didn't like the front part of the gun because of the orange tip and switched it out for a silencer. I am saying this because this gun is VERY customizable. Rails everywhere. You can even switch the trigger guard, pistol grip and crane stock. The blowback system is music to my ears and addictive. Getting the battery installed and removed is a lengthy process. Its a 3 step process, but step 2 is a tedious one. Despite cons listed I'm 100% happy about my purchase. Thank you Airsoft GI for packing my items so nicely.
Awesome blowback system with functional charging handle.
7 inches of rail space plus more for optics.
Very customizable, make your Shadow Carbine your own.
Feels great in the hands
Turns from field to CQB in seconds without sacrificing FPS.
High FPS 370s-400s
Lots of battery space, but less crane stock mobility ( maybe I'm doing something wrong.)
Good Sights a little new but a good change
Has a small kick to it. AWESOME FEEL.
Hard to get the battery in and out because of push in pins. ( It is so hard and stressful I am considering buying a new crane stock.)
Fire selector switch not on both sides.( I don't mind, but its good to point out for lefties.)
Price. ( I know its average and you are getting every penny you spend back, but money is tight for me.)
No manual or unjamming rod.
