I bought this gun from a friend who broke it and didn't want to fix it. So I fixed it and I have to say that I am very impressed with the stock quality of this gun. The whole gun is metal, except for the foregrip, magazine, stock, and pistol grip area. The metal is not the highest quality metal, but it is metal. This gun is very different from it's high-end counterpart.
The gun shoots about 330fps out of the box at about 800 rpm. The gun has a small type connector that feeds into the stock, which is definitely different from the Classic Army version. The gun is fairly accurate, as it has a 16" inner barrel; it is able to reach out to about 170ft at most.
The gearbox varies majorly from the one Classic Army uses in their CA33. Classic Army uses a typical Version II gearbox, wheras the Both Elephant uses a Version II Hybrid gearbox. All the internals of this Gearbox are Version II compatible, but the gun uses a short type motor, tpically found in Version III gearboxes. The inside of the gearbox is very reinforced as well. There is significant reinforcement around the gear areas and the front of the cylinder area. This leaves possiblities for some beefy upgrading. If you are planning on upgrading this gun and plan on replacing the stock motor, be sure to buy some Version II full stock wiring, because the wiring is soldered to the motor.
Overall, I reccomend this gun as a good beginner's gun who wants something less mondane than a M4/M16 or AK variant, or as a cheaper alternative to a CA33 with upgrading in mind.
