"I bought this gun with the 50 round magazine and the 30 round magazine.
Overall, the gun shoots accurately about 70-100 feet right out of the box.
Here are my issues with the gun.
1. The handgrip. I have larger hands, but the handgrip is pretty large. If you have small hands I would not get this gun. Also, the grip is some weird grip rubber material; I personally prefer the checkered wood or metal but that is personal preference.
2. The Split Competition Slide.
The front end came loose. It is held on by an hex screw and easily tightens; however, it gets loose after one game or so. Not enough to be concerned about it falling off, but enough to be annoying.
3. Rate of fire not that great.
This is not a bad thing. The rate of fire on this gun is good, but not that much better than the other pistols. My KWA 1911A1 (old model not Ns2) gets out about the same amount of rounds/minute.
Overall, this pistol performs very well especially for the price. My issues with it are mainly that it is a bigger pistol and that the slide seems to want to be loose. "PLEASE, read this whole review, it covers some problems in this gun and how to fix them. It tells some what to do and not to do. Also some possible customizations.
I must have had this pistol for 6 months, I use it in games rather often when I get the chance. I recommend using the holy cow special to get a magazine because even the 30+1 rounds go fast. If you take the care to lubricate this gun often, nothing bad should happen. Also; try not drop the magazine on the nozzle. It will probably break. Many often mention a "leak issue" with the magazines, but I found a way to fix it (at the end of review*) A problem that happened to me was I played a game and dived in a sand bunker. I found that my pistol had leapt out of the holster on my vest and landed in the sand. This still comes back to me as I notice bits of sand in the trigger mechanism, the slide and every where with moving parts. My pistol at the moment has the -14mm unscrewable flash hider from my JG G3 T3 K1 (Great gun btw) and a slightly modified foregrip on the bottom rail. The flash hider actually increases accuracy quite noticeably. The foregrip is just really cool to have, the foregrip is this " UTG / AIM Ergonomic Vertical Tactical Foregrip. My gun easily hits a four inch wide tree from a measured 65 feet away. What I don't like about this gun is how difficult it is to simply adjust the hop up, or clean it. You have to unscrew the front pin with a tiny allen wrench, then you do the normal thing and take off the slide. I guess its not that bad, but kinda annoying. Speaking of hop up though, mine is adjusted to have the little arrow inside pointing to the screw right next to the hop up, you will know what I mean if you see it. The bb drops a tiny bit from 65 feet. I use .2 grams. When I fill up my mags with propane, I fill it in for 15 seconds exactly. I recommend cleaning your barrel with cut up cotton balls and an unjamming rod untill the cotton balls come out clean. Very powerful gun. However, the right side safety fell off, but the left side safety still works perfectly fine. My rear sight snapped when I dropped my gun. I love this pistol. But I clean it often. You should too. (Magazine leak fix below)
* step 1: find the button under the magazine, push it in with something long and thin like a paperclip and slide the bottom mag plate forward. The magazine will stop again at the second hole so do it again.
Step 2 get a slightly broad flathead screwdriver and a regular-small phillips head screwdriver. Use the phillips head to twist the black screw as tight as it will go. Then use the flathead to twist the gas feed nozzle (the sliver and gold thing) clockwise as tight as it will go. This should do the trick. It is also important that there are no bbs loaded as you do this and that you twist the black phillips screw first.
If you get this gun it is very helpful to read this review, and if you did, Thanks. "I Have Been running this GBB for the last year or two in games, and this gun is awesome! I run this gun all the time...
My setup is Pretty much two 51rd, hi caps and a low-cap and the hi-caps are great!
My advice is get a hi-cap, the gun looks intimidating!
Overall 5/5! Read More Reviews Write a Review

WE-Tech / Taiwan.
If you are looking for a reliable full metal gas gun, WE-tech @ Evike is the way to go. We guarantee you the newest version that no other retailer can. We also made available all the spare parts you'll ever need on a WE gas blowback allowing it to never go out of service on you. These are one of the most realistic / durable gas guns out there.
Being full metal, if you rapid fire your WE-hicapa you'll want to give the magazine a chance to warm up to room temperature before you load it up again for immediate shooting for best air compression. A solution is to purchase extra magazines so you can rotate using them. This only applies to full metal guns because they are all equipped with a high flow valve. This is probably the "only" draw back about WE guns, as some players argue that a plastic gun don't have this gas cool down issue. However, the "full metal", the "durability" and "performance" and "hi-capacity" will totally make up for this small issue, there are reasons people upgrade their plastic Marui to full metal.
*All gas guns comes with bright orange tip to comply with US law and regulations.
Realistic Weight and Blowback Action.
