Just got back from 19D OSUT at Ft. Knox. Had been gone 17 weeks, had been missing airsoft a lot and had a nice hunk of Army pay collecting dust in my bank account, so I went to a local store with the intent of splurging on some new pistol I wouldn't need and found this sitting in the case. Despite the price tag...it fit the bill for something nifty and immediately bought it.
first game, I got it into action with the fancy "flip" and killed a guy, but was surprised when it fired semi only. The guy who sold it to me mentioned full automatic capability. I quickly checked the manual at the end of the game and was relieved to discover the fire selector.
small problem with this gun. If you choose to change the fire selector and simply flip open the upper receiver to access the switch, the first shot will cycle the internal G18's slide once and knock the selector switch to the neutral install/uninstall setting, disabling the trigger and convincing you the weapon is broken. Be sure you drop the stock down and lock the G18 slide to the rear and change the setting back there before returning the slide to the forward position and re-locking the stock.
I removed the handle and put the Magpul flip up sights that I bought at the PX at Knox on there and they not only match the gun perfectly but actually WORK with the trajectory.
its loud (the sound echoes inside the hollow upper body and makes a rough cough)
next to the KWA TMP it doesnt shoot as fast so the 50 round mag lasts
a nifty collectors item and a really nice compact, lightweight sidearm for a sniper or infantry-wanna-be.
mine chronoed at 323 average fps with Javelin .20g bbs.
the only bad sides i can really find are the nasty tendency of this gun to discharge a bb from the top of the magazine when folding/unfolding the grip assembly, leaky standard magazine and an obnoxious orange tip that flakes off and gets inside the weapon gumming it up and threatening to break it fast...so take care.
Im glad I bought mine. be sure to be smart and read the manual through and through and enjoy.
