As cool as this airsoft Galil is, it has to be stated that ICS's main priority when making this rifle was probably looks, not performance. The full-metal body is completely rattle-free and the folding stock is incredibly solid in both the folded and extended positions. Despite this heavy-duty exterior, this gun maintains a fairly low weight. The whole gun is beautifully finished, complete with a unique serial number and authentic Israeli Military markings. After a month of fairly hard use, this gun is still as solid as the day it arrived and it has no scratches. To cut a long story short, this rifle looks and feels straight up awesome. Moving on to performance, understand that by no means does this gun perform poorly, but apart from the exceptionally high rate of fire with a 9.6v battery and the silky smooth trigger response, there isn't anything terribly noteworthy about this rifle's stock performance. It shoots at about 370 FPS with .25g BBs and achieves similar groupings to an Echo 1 M4. This ho-hum accuracy could probably be vastly improved by a new hop-up chamber, as the installed one seems to be of fairly low quality and is kind of jumpy and unpredictable. Despite these setbacks, this is definitely my favorite airsoft rifle of all time. If you are a super serious airsoft player looking for an incredibly tactical and deadly accurate airsoft gun that will own people in professional tournaments, this probably is not what you're looking for. However, if you want an extremely unique rifle that will stand out in a crowd and hold its own in battles, look no further than the ICS Galil.
