This is a great sniper rifle for beginners, its full metal, but it still only ways about eight pounds. The gun is really accurate once you get a scope put on an tuned up. And it is accurate at really long ranges. Also The Harris style bipod it comes with is great quality.
I had some trouble when I first got the gun though. It doesn't come fully assembled, so you have to put it together yourself, the screw didn't fit because of the paint and scraps on them, so I had to wipe it down and work it in with some WD40. Also to make it worse It didn't come with instructions of any kind, but i found everything I needed on Echo-1's website.
It had problems with BB's rolling out of the barrel after pulling back the bolt, but after looking on Echo-1's website it said that this will happen if the hop up is off, so you have to turn it on just a little. I followed the directions and now everything is great.
*Also for people that say the bolt is stiff, thats cause the spring is stiff, and thats were the high FPS comes from so that's a good thing. Anyways it loosens up after a while
Great accuracy and consistency. BB's hit within six inches on a target from about 75 feet.
Accurate at long range.
Amazing fps for the price. around 520 fps
Comes with two mags.
Gun is upgradable, which isn't necessary though cause its great.
Doesn't come with instructions. (Found some for this gun on Echo 1 website)
BB's roll out of the barrel when hop up is off, but its fine once you turn it on.
Screws did not fit, had to put grease and strip the paint before the got in.
Mags are cheap plastic. But they sell metal ones.
These aren't really things that make the gun bad, so it gets five stars.
