I'm writing a new review now that I have enough experience, as well as a battery!
My gun came in a completely unmarked box with no manual, which is odd because a G&P I recently handled from another US retailer had a G&P box and included a takedown manual. The package comes with gun, a mid-cap magazine, and an extra dean connector.
The gun's externals are rock solid. All aluminum, metal where it should be and strong ABS where it shouldn't. The only plastic parts are the handgrips, pistol grip, and crane stock. The laser engravings are clean and well done. This gun feels great! Mine came with a black metal flashhider too.
The gun internally is great. ASGI didn't include chrono information for me, but the "poor man's chrono" is showing that it shoots at least 350fps; shot right through a soda can, both sides. It breaks the bottom of a can, but doesn't pass through, so I'm guessing it's maybe even around 360 tops with .25s.
Note that this gun uses a real-style Delta ring and receiver, so you'll need RIS systems made for that as opposed to the kind made for Marui, Echo 1, or JG guns.
ASGI now informs you that the gun has DEANS connectors and not Tamiya connectors, so you need an adapter to use normal batteries. Deans connectors are considered higher quality, but they're not standard. If you want, go online and buy a female deans - male tamiya adapter from cheapbatterypacks.com for about $4.
-Performs well out of the box
-G&P Quality really shows.
-A little peeved that ASGI didn't offer to fix the battery issue even though when I bought the gun they didn't inform me at all that the battery I bought wasn't compatible. I'm still a loyal ASGI customer, but shame on them for once!
