OK, so I got one of these. . . Has to be about a year and a half ago now... Amazing gun from the stock to flash hider. The "plastic" parts almost seem more like fiberglass than any sort of plastic I've ever encountered, and are very high quality. Highly upgradable, being an M-Series.
I don't really like how the stock is attached to the body. The Buffer Tube on this gun isn't part of the Lower Reciever, it screws into it. Made attaching a single point sling adapter difficult.
Everything. It's strong, sturdy, reliable, highly and very easily upgradable. It's an M4 which means replacement parts are everywhere. It's pretty nicely detailed. Looks great, even stock. The web-page says it has an Aluminum reciever, but I have to say BS on that one. It's way to heavy to be Aluminum, I'd have to guess Magnesium..? Has a good weight to it though. The 450 round Hi-Cap is a nice extra. PLENTY of room in the full stock for a wide range of batteries. IDK, I'm a little biased I suppose since I have one and have it heavily modified so of course I love it.
OH! One last Con I should mention - IT'S ADDICTING!!!!! Once you get one, you can't help yourself from wanting to get it upgraded and modded and personalized... It burns through your wallet, billfold, or even purse VERY quickly. Here's an example
My set up at the moment
-G&G GR16 A3 Carbine
-UTG 2 Piece RIS Set
-Matrix M160 Gearbox W/ Rear Wiring
-Matrix Long Type Magnum Motor
-Matrix 11.1 4000 Mah Li-Poly Battery
-Matrix Barrel Extension Set (the one that has the 1, 2, and 4" extensions - I'm using the 4")
-JBU Matrix 9.5" Mock Silencer
-JBU 550mm 6.01 TightBore Barrel
-Matrix L300 Green Laser Sight
-ICS JBU Full Metal Sponge Covered Vert. Grip
-See-Thru Tri Rail Scope Riser Mount
-Leapers 3-9X50 Red/Green Illuminating Scope on low rise rings
-Matrix "Force Bull" Single Point Sling Adapter
-Condor CBT Tactical Bungee Sling
And I think that's about it at the moment. But to put it bluntly. It hurts. To be shot with, and to carry. This thing gets heavy after a while. It starts out decently heavy anyways, but after heavy modding. . . Ouch
