Product Information:
When I first got this gun I was a little disappointed with the quality of the plastic body, it has some sharp edges and the paint job looks really cheap. However, once I took it apart and cleaned all of the excess grease off of the bolt internals, bolt, and barrel. This thing shot strong. I was able to hit a cereal box sized target everytime from a measured distance of 150 ft. I was using .36 gram bb's. I also got the bolt upgrade with it and let me tell you, that takes this gun from a decent gun to a real competitor. I saw huge gains in FPS, and the bolt kit wasn't any harder then the stock bolt to pull. Overall I'm very impressed with this gun, I can ignore the quality of the plastic seams for what this gun delivers. As long as you take the time to clean it out from the factory, this gun can be great. I see alot of complaints about the bipod being too loose as well. This is true, but its meant to be that way. Also I found that if you tighten the screws on the bipod itself, this will help a lot with a play, and a little bit of electrical tape on the insert pin makes it a lot stiffer.

Again I recomend cleaning off 90% of the grease on this gun, its way overdone, but the guns fantastic now that I did. Also when you take the bolt apart to clean it add some teflon tape to the brass nipple and you'll see a decent fps increase as well. Last piece of info, the hop up unit on this gun is essentially useless its crap, leave it off completely. I find the bb's are much more on target with it off.

Also before reinstalling the bolt grease the back block you'll see a good amount of metal on metal wear there for the first 100 shots or so. Once the metal is worn good the bolt moves much more freely.

Good FPS
Can easily mod
Lots of available cheap mods
takes .36 gram bb's like a champ with bolt kit installed.

Quality of plastic (lots of sharp edges, I found the hand grip the worst place)
Paint job...stick to the black or OD, ACU scheme looks cheap.
No scope included
Hop up SUCKS on this gun, just spend the 35-45 dollar and get a tight bore barrel you wont need to worry about the hopup

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]
