First off, I would only recommend this gun to experienced to upper-intermediate players with experience in upgrading. Stock, this gun is not very good at all, much to the contrary of other reviews. First, the stock accuracy is not very great [approx. 1ft. groupings at 100ft.] the stock consistency is HORRIBLE, FPS [using propane and .30g bb's] is 550 +/- approx. 100 FPS. So some shots fired will be excellent and others won't even come close to hitting your targets..
So the reason I recommend this to experience players with upgrading experience is because this gun is magnificent with the proper upgrades. I would highly recommend a 6.01 650mm PSG-1 tightbore barrell [you will have to drill the orange tip a little to get it to fit] also I would recommend you get a different hop up or MAKING your own v-hop nob and adding in barrell spacers. Also get a G&G Striker Spring, as this will help enourmously with consistency.
Next, I highly recommend rigging up an external HPA system. I recommend an external HPA rig because it is way more consistent, the temp. won't affect FPS, you can regulate your FPS [be responsible. 110 psi is the most I would ever go with and that gives you great FPS] and overtime [if you use this gun a lot] will save you $$$ since the very expensive price of air is... free [some places charge to fill your tank, others don't]. Will cost you anywhere from $50 to $120.
Here is a pretty good guide to rigging a HPA system:
So, to players looking to upgrade and are on a budget for around $300-$400 this is a good gun to get. Stock is horrible.
Weight (around 10 pounds with a scope and bipod) and sturdiness
Great if you upgrade...
Note: I give this a 3 star rating based on the gun stock.
