"I HEART this gun!! My favorite!
Great for CQB and indoor ranges!
Gun fires at 370 fps semi / 330 fps @ 11 rof auto right out of the box.
After warranty expired, swapped stock spring with M100 for 330 fps.
I would recommend the red dot below because it's design just flows with the lines of the gun.
Full metal internals and metal tri-rail.
Version 6 gearbox. EASIEST gearbox to work on and upgrade.
EASY SWAPPING of spring. NO DISASSEMBLY NEEDED to swap spring!
Hi-cap King Arms mag spring feeds the entire mag with no problems.
LiPo ready (of course precautions like MOSFET and fuse should be considered)
You have A LOT of gearbox space. MUCH much space!
Tool included to adjust front sight for elevation.
Now the bad things I hate to admit:
Windage adjustment is a pain in the a$$. Need a big and wide flathead screwdriver.
Trigger is big, fat, wide, and bullpup style. Will take some getting used to when coming from an M4 style trigger.
Special map pouches needed. Regular old M4 style mag carriers will give problems.
Top rail MUST be taken out and replaced in order to fit a P90 1500 rnd box mag.
BUT I STILL LOVE THIS GUN!!!!!
"this i my review of the gun
good rof with 8.4
small, and mags are very unique
plenty of rail conversion kits and tac rail
small, perfect for cqb
has unique look, and a very different look
small battery compartment
hard to fit extra mags in
you have to buy special mag pouches
"I have owned this gun for a little over 2 months now and have taken it to 4 CQB games, and it is by far the best CQB weapon I have ever handled. First pros and cons, then my take.
Quality metal upper receiver, good paint as well
Great quailty abs lower receiver
"sticky" hop up, it wont move unless you make it move
balanced, easily used one handed
fire selector is a bit too sticky. Getting it to semi with one finger takes skill
form factor, a bit small for bigger guys (i am 5 10 and it fits me fine for reference)
dual stage trigger is extremely finicky
as with all P90s, the high caps dont work for shift.
iron sights are tiny.
P90s are an aquired taste and many do not like them. U really got to try it to be sure
To start, i want to note I did buy the Tactical version from Taiwan. This version has a quick change gearbox, a metal flash-hider, and a nylon fiber receiver. I have handled the american version and the only difference between the ABS and the nylon fiber is the nylon is a bit grip-ier and has a more matte finish.
The upper receiver and rails have a good metal construction. However, the iron sight built into the rail is almost useless. The hole is so small and closed off you can hardly see anything but the big ol post in the center. Within the upper, the tightbore and hopup (with included h-nub) serve it well, making good use of the short, G36 length barrel. I can easily hit a man sized target from 75 ft on semi.
A note on P90s in general. P90s are an acquired taste. They look weird, and they feel weird. But at the same time, they look cool and are comfortable. They can be used left or right handed, one or two hands. After you get used to it, it is the greatest CQB platform around (in my opinion). The only drawback of it's design is the high-capacity magazines. In short, they dont work. One wind will get it going, but the bb pusher thing that feeds it into the winder will jam up, and you have to take it out and adjust it every few seconds on full auto. Get MAG 170 round mid caps or King Arms 110 rd-ers and you will be fine. Mag changes are slower than an M4 but with a dump pouch not horrible at all. Just be sure to be behind cover when u do it.
The lower is also very good but otherwise featureless. Trades are nicely engraved and not to flashy, no white paint. The metal upper balances the gearbox making this gun very balanced and actually easy to use one handed. Dual wielding is entirely feasible but not tested. Only gripe here is the fire selector is very stiff, and the dual stage trigger is finicky. Basically, on full auto a "half" pull will give you one shot, and a full pull with get you full auto. But there is no indication of a "half" pull as with the AUG, where there is a very feel-able click. It doesnt seem to have a constant definition either, and i would not rely on it ever.
The gearbox on this gets a respectable rate of fire, and is very reliable. Furthermore, being so deep in the gun, it is extremly quite as well.
Overall, this guns has a few minor problems, but is, in my opinion, by far the best P90 available today. Slap on a red dot, laser, 11.1 lipo, some MAG 170 rd mid caps, and maybe flashlight and you are ready for any CQB scenario.
