I have been using this gun for about 5-6 months now and I am very happy with it. I have fired about 1,100 rounds from this gun, which is pretty good for a bolt rifle. The gun has a couple of oddities that you need to be warned of but overall the gun is easily the best value sniper rifle around.

First off the good. The power on this gun is amazing, even more so considering the price. I have had this gun clocked at 515-550fps using .20 BB's (green gas, warm weather) with all stock parts. You will not find any other stock gun at anywhere near this price that produces that kind of velocity.

The gun is extremely well built, with the possible execption of the bolt, which I will explain more below. The mags in my opinion feel a lot more solid than the actual Tanaka mags, but the option of the long mags from Tanaka is nice. With the right BB's, (such as .30 Super Grand Masters) I would say effective range of this gun with all stock parts is 200-250 feet.

Now for the bad. The biggest complaint about this gun is the fact that it is VERY picky about what BB's you use. Not just weight, but brand as well. First off, weight wise, consider .26 a minimum. I would recommend sticking with .30 or higher. Brand wise only use BB's with a good coating on it, or graphite ones. For example when using .26 JT's or Marui's the gun at a range of 90 - 100 feet (using 8x Bushnell scope) is often off by 5 - 10 feet. Yes, feet and not in any particular direction either. You will be shooting at a non-moving target, sighted right on his chest, laying prone and watch the BB sail 8 feet above his head. Whereas with BB's the gun likes, you can hit a pop-can from 200 feet, one shot. This does not seem to be an issue with the barrel, at least not completely, because with the good BB's it will shoot straight on.

More likely it seems to be an issue with the valves on the KJW mags because the BB's velocity fluxuates by approximately 40-50 fps. I have not tried using the .26 Marui BB's with a Tanaka mag yet, but as long as you stick with the better BB's you should be fine.

The only other issue with the gun is the fact that the bolt seems to quickly become rather loose when pulled out. It has not yet caused any issues with the gun, but it is a concern to me.

So, overall I would recommend this gun. It's biggest flaw can be worked around by spending a little extra on BB's and the only other con has not yet been an issue. Therefore I would recommend this gun highly to anyone looking for a bolt action sniper rifle.
