This gun is... eh. I would not price this gun at $265, either. The internal parts are very poorly made, so AirsoftGI, yeah your parts are bad. I would NOT recommend this rifle to anyone who is as serious of a sniper as I am. I made my own extremely effective ghillie suit, NOT a store bought one, I play as a lone wolf and stalk my enemies at ranges from 100 to 350 feet. I am a forward observer for my team and only shoot when in self defense or taking out high value targets. I will say, this weapon does not fill that role. Prior to this rifle I owned and used a G&G G96, completely stock, and its consistency was terrible. I got great range on some days, not so great range on others. Thats why I switched to a spring rifle, because A) parts were easier to find and B) the performance is not affected by the cold weather. So even with the 6.01mm barrel, and the M170 spring, this gun had serious trouble getting to 190 feet with a 0.25g bb. I wasn't even using my heavy weights! When the bb did land on target (which was about one out of three or more shots) the players did not feel it on their chest because of their rigs, nor did they feel their heads because of helmets. This left me to be shooting at their feet and their hands, which leaves me at a terrible disadvantage. At 174 feet it could not penetrate cardboard, nor did it even leave a dent. My G96 was able to shoot through cardboard at 180 feet and get the player behind it as well. As for the internal build quality, well, it sucks. I had to send the gun back to get the sear replaced after 3 magazines worth of shots. I hadn't even scrimmaged the gun yet! how about the stud mounts? long story short, I cant use a bipod anymore because when i tried to attach my sling (with stud mount) i found out the hard way that the stud is cheap plastic, as is the rest of the gun. The rifle overall feels cheap in your hands and the stock makes a click noise everytime you cock the gun and pull the trigger. I mean, where you HOLD the stock, too, not where the trigger is. On my G96 I loved using very low profile sights because it made my gun look awesome and my eye protection allowed it. But on the G700 i found that I couldn't even adjust the parallax on my scope because it would scrape the elongated rail. Who would spend $265 on their rifle and have a night vision scope to add to it anyway? you are better off just getting a shorter rail. Another thing about the stock is that GI says its a "flat" black, but I ended up repainting a REAL flat black because of how many people commented on it. Its pretty shiny. The gun is light, but theres a reason. The gun is cheap. Please do yourself a favor, and DONT BUY THIS. If you are looking for an upgraded springer, Do it yourself. If you don't know how, learn or have a professional do it for you. If you dont have the money like me, then go to ebay and you'll find better stuff. WAY Better stuff. FPS means nothing. I dont know if the other guys writing reviews have taken the rifle to a real field, cause man, the range and accuracy does suck.
nice and shiny, if thats what you want.
two, cheap plastic stud mounts
elongated rail for those who have night vision...
light bolt pull (for me)
easy to take apart
you hopefully havent wasted your money on this yet
the stock is way to shiny
the elongated rail doesn't like my scope
my scope doesn't like the rail either :(
range is terrible for a fully upgraded sniper rifle
accuracy is terrible for a fully upgraded sniper rifle
sears will break VERY SOON
(heavy bolt pull if you're a 12 year old kid)
magazines are very cheap. mine misfeeds every other shot
terrible "light cover" penetration such as cardboard (man I love when noobs actually use that stuff :D)
I wasted my money on this though D:
VERY, VERY, VERY cheap feeling to it.
players do not feel getting hit after 160+ feet
Don't Get It. Do Yourself A Favor
