"Gun is amazing, mine would stop firing/jam after I fired about half the mag, I don't know if it was my bbs or gas. Other than that it is really good, adds a nice touch when you're around modern airsoft replicas. I would HIGHLY recommend buying extra magazines. Also, be careful of the barrel sights as mine either got shot off or came off when I put it in my pocket. Shot at about 280-290 with .28 gram bbs.
"If you don't want to read the whole thing, skip to the recap.
I bought this gun over a year ago because I absolutely LOVE the Luger. Externally, I was not in the least disappointed. It has a great weight to it, very solid with only a little wobble in the mags. The blow back function of it is awsome and spot on for realism, the kick from it is a nice touch as well, nothing like blazing away with that unique Luger blow back after each shot. The paint does wear in places and I was kind of disappointed with that as I like to keep my weapons in perfect condition, but I got a chance to look at a real one (my grandpa captured a vis and a walthers, but no Luger 😞) and it was worn in the same places... Awsome!!!
Then I played my first game with it...
Never, never, never use this in any game that has aegs in it. I got torn up so badly, it was not even funny. Basically the maximum effective range of this pistol is 50 feet. Also, forget about hitting anyone in good cover, you just don't have the accuracy for it. What's worse is its not consistent, which is true for many gbbs, so it is impossible to correct your aim for the next shot. However, having said that, in a cqb environment, if you are a good shot, you might make this thing work. There are no cqb fields near me so I have no way to test this theory. Within 50 feet you get about a 20 inch diameter spread, which isn't too bad.
Here are the quick pros and cons for those of you with low reading attention spans.
Spot on realistic externals
Awsome blow back action
Bad accuracy and range
In recap, if you want a good reliable sidearm for serious combat, go get some other pistol. If you love the Luger as much as I do, and play mostly cqb, and are willing to trade some practicality for the joy of using a beautiful historically accurate pistol, this might be the weapon for you, just remember to get in close before you fire. Also remember this is for the 4 inch barreled Luger. The 8 inch barreled Luger might have better field stats if you are willing to trade awsome looks for better performance and use a Luger that looks like someone stuck a pipe on the end of it.
"Let me just say this gun is awesome, but also a major pain in the ass if you need to try to fix anything with it. I put about 3 hours of work into it and it now works decently...I had a defective model that shot on full auto whenever you touched the trigger, and I had to remove the lock back function on the blow-back bit, and re-align the firing pin. You also need 3 hands and apposable toes to put the damn thing back together after you take it apart (I had to have a friend help me). I didn't buy it from evike.com, but it was from a licensed retailer, and it was the exact same gun. Also, my first mag didn't work.
-Best feeling airsoft gun I've ever held (the grip angle and trigger placement is beyond perfect. Amazingly comfortable to hold)
-Really cool sights that can be ajusted from 100-200 ft, via a spring loaded button
-Full metal, very sturdy
-fits nicely into regular pistol holster
-mags suck (leaky, needs new green gas every 17-18 shots, loose in the gun)
-gun will freeze up after about 2 mags and if you continue firing you WILL destroy your mags
-I won't include my issue with a gun that was obviously simply defective, I hope no one else has that problem
Conclusion: If you get a non-defective model this is worth every penny of the 100$...otherwise...still worth the money. This is the coolest freakin gun- BUY IT
