"The gun looks great! It has nice engravings which show up perfectly in the light. The grips and some of the internals (SOME not all) are the only plastic parts of the gun. It does not come with spare black grips like the older version which is fine with me but just to inform anyone who was hoping for that however you can still get them. The orange tip is threaded! Unlike what the picture shows on the website it can also be removed and just simply screws/turns back in BUT it does come glued in so keep that in mind. The mag it comes with matches the gun perfectly but I do recommend getting the CO2 mag instead since green gas is hard to get online the only problem with that is the mag will be black but looks just fine with the gun.
The only problems I have with the gun are:
The grips are plastic (which is no big deal they are still durable)
On mine the safty is hard to turn on but easy to turn off (should be the other way around)
Sounds like real steal (slide, mag releasing)
Engravings match almost perfectly with Black Lagoon
Easy to maintain (get the oil evike sells for $4.50)
Just keep in mind the color of this gun is not for everyone! It does reflect light when in bright light
Would I recommended it? Yes. "I just received this gun last Wednesday and I must say, I love it. It shoots beautifully right out the box, has a nice weight to it, and a "clack" to it when the slide moves back. This is y first GBB pistol and I'm extremely satisfied. Most of the parts are metal, except the Ivory handgrips and the hop up. The hop up looks nice though, it's blue. I haven't messed with the hop up yet, since I know it'll be a pain. The range seems pretty good, I live in the ghetto so I can't really test it like I want to. I don't have a chrono to see the fps. Now for the nitpicky part (Cons, but it's just nitpicking); the skulls in the Ivory grips are lazily detailed and not as centered as in the anime, also the screws in the grips are black when they're supposed to be silver. Other than that, I LOVE this gun. If this is still in the Epic Deals by Friday when I get paid, I'm definitely buying another one. Ps. To get the Orange tip off, boil the tip in water for almost 20mins or so and just twist it counter-clockwise with pliers. Use a rag or something to prevent scratches. Also, a CO2 mag does fit, but you have to kinda push it in there and mess with the mag release button until it clicks, otherwise it pops back out. I haven't tested it with CO2 yet. Anyways, like I said, if it's still on sale by this Friday, I'm definitely buying another. =) "Great gun for a number of previously stated reasons and on top of that it just looks so damn sexy. Everyone has a MEU (yes i have one too), but not everyone has a decked out m9 like this. there are no cons part from my fear to scratch or damage the finish.
The mags that came with it work great, and under the right conditions you can get two mags out of one fill. ( i tried it at ~20° celsius/~69° f, and got about 56 rounds out the mag it came with)
For a larger then average handgun it actually weighs less than an MEU, not that this is a point of criticism or a con.
I'm just dissapointed about one thing and that is that my MEU came with a 6.03 tightbore installed ( a plus that wasn't mentioned in the product overview) and this one sadly didn't. (imagine how much better this already sick gun could get)
overall its a highly skirmishable gun that can hold its own against all of the other side arms out there and even against some aeg's or shotguns in terms of range.
Oooh did i mention it looks incredebly sexy, and that by simply holding it you look that much (tacti-)sexier Read More Reviews Write a Review
