Bought this M14 Scout about a year ago, and it hasn't failed me yet. Shoots stock at around 380, so it's decent FPS, but I would personally get a stronger spring and motor for it through just to start slinging the plastic a little harder. One great thing about CYMA, are internals are really durable. And once you get a 9.6 it'll jack the ROF up.
Pros: Lightweight, which is always a plus, unless you want mil-sim type AEG
ROF and FPS is decent,
Comfortable "full-rifle" body,
Easy to reload if your a lefty
Goggles won't get in the way of you sights because of the stock styling.
Con's: Rather delicate plastic body,
Very awkward rail placement, its way to far forward
The fake charging handle broke on mine.
You need a very small hex screw driver if you want to disassemble it.
Version 7 gear box's are annoying and can be difficult to find upgrade parts.
My personally recommendation, First you need a 9.6 so get that when you order the AEG, then you want to get a better spring and motor and get your FPS up, to at least a steady 400. Also, if want to add a rail system, evike sells a lot of options, full rails covers that cover the top bottom and the sides of your m14, just beware you'll add A LOT of weight to the AEG, and then they sell a smaller rail which go right above the ejection port which is what I have. Just make sure if you buy a scope you one with 'long eye relief', or you'll have to choke up on your AEG. Then maybe a tightbore barrel and you'll have very mean machine.
