I bought my G&G M14 here on Evike about a month ago and have now had a chance to field it three times in games. while reliability will have to be seen over time, I do think i've shot it enough to be able to give at least half way decent insight to anyone looking at purchasing one.
to sum it up, this is a GREAT rifle for anyone looking to perform as a marksman / sniper for your team. with the addition of a good quality scope, this rifle will definitely do sniper duties, while being able to go full auto should the need arise. that is exactly the reason I chose to go the M14 route rather than a true sniper rifle. the weight may be an issue for younger / smaller players... this rifle is HEAVY! right away, I bought a rifle sling to hang it over my shoulder when I'm not shooting. with the exception of the plastic heat shield, this rifle is built like a tank and I can see it holding up really well for many years to come.
great looking, well built rifle
accurate at extended ranges with stock tight bore barrel
good FPS and ROF
large stock accommodates large batteries
quality internals (no need to make any immediate mods for reliability)
easy adjustment of hop up unit
feel solid and well made.... heavy!
Heavy (might be a con for smaller players)
limited options for replacement mags
plastic heat shield will not likely stand up to normal abuse over time...
