"I'ave had this gun for a few months, its been really consistent shooting, however I had a hiccup, but this was entirely user error. I disassembled this gun before using it, and a pin fell out of the back of the bolt. If this happens, MAKE SURE TO PUT IT BACK CORRECTLY. If it is not put back correctly, the gun doesn't load bb's half the time. This is because that pin goes through the back of the bolt, which hooks through a spring on the back of that plastic inner-bolt. To fix this, when you push the pin through, put it in at an angle so the pin and the bolt form an obtuse angle towards the front of the bolt. this is to 'hook' the spring. You'll know you got it when you feel some resistance to make the pin straight. I found it helpful to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to guide the pin back straight from the other side.
The pins which hold this gun together have fairly low tolerances, so i recommend putting some hot glue over them so they don't bang themselves loose during normal play.
There is one other thing I found annoying with this gun. There are set screws holding in the decorative metal 'gas pipe' which would aid the semi-auto action were this a real gun, and to hold on the fore-grip. On mine, the one holding on the fore grip was stripped, so the fore grip is a little too lose (it wiggles a little), and I can't fix this. I haven't tried removing it, because I don't know if i'll be able to find a suitable replacement.
When getting this, BUY A SCOPE, because the built-in sights are trash. They support vertical, but not horizontal adjustments.
The leather cheek-rest works if you don't use a mask, but if you do, you NEED to take it off.
The construction of the gun is sturdy, the metal feels very strong. The parts which need to be durable are, but i'd prefer if the inner bolt was metal instead of plastic (i think that'd be the first thing that'd break). The trigger has a comfortable pull weight, and the kick isn't too powerful. One thing i'd change with the main body of the gun, is to put a piece of silicon between the front part of the upper receiver and the bolt, because when that bolt comes forward, it REALLY comes forward. The metal clanking is enough to give away your position from a hundred yards.
I haven't used this too much yet, so i'll update this review as I get to use it more. "If you are looking for a compact light weight sniper rifle with good range, look no further!! I got the OD color but here is the review anyways.
High power right out of the box with no modification needed.
Compact and portable, I am a fan of lighter equipments.
Spare magazines are decently priced.
SVD scope is awesome. I got the bipod too!
Won't work well in the snow due to cold weather and gas compression, but this rifle has the co2 magazine available which completely solves the problem. "I've used this rifle in two games, and both ended up being some of my best in terms of KDR. It's accurate, it's powerful, it's got great range, and aspiring snipers should totally get one.
Even though magazines are expensive and adjusting the hop-up is a hassle, these are very minor complaints for a rifle with this kind of performance.
Also: Normal AK scope mounts are compatible with this rifle. Trust me, you're going to need one. Read More Reviews Write a Review
