The WE-Tech SMG-8 Airsoft GBB Sub Machine Gun packs quite a punch in a small package. Great as a main weapon or sidearm this Airsoft SMG is just what you need for any load out. Featuring a full 20mm accessory rail system you can deck this gun out with all kinds of tactical equipment. The internals are designed to be hard hitting with a realistic kick utilizing WE-Tech's awesome open-bolt blowback system. The extendable stock can be deployed with the touch of a button allowing the operator to adapt to all types of combat situations. Comfort is also key with the ergonomically designed pistol grip and the polymer butt plate. A heavyweight full-metal magazine provides the gun with great balance and a very realistic feel. This is by far one of the coolest Airsoft GBB SMG's to hit the market!

    "Very good gbb smg. especially if you want a gun to make custom

    hard kick especially if you put in all the angel custom upgrades
    The range and accuracy was great even if I held it one handed
    Heavy weight which helps handle the gun better
    magazines feed very smoothy
    I have every angel custom part attached and I have rivaled very close any gas sniper due to the smg8's range and accuracy with the tightbore and the tightbore in the silencer

    Semi auto will fail no matter what but I really never needed it
    the notches on the stock do not hold well so my stock collapses from the recoil
    There is not a package for a smg 8 to already have every angel custom already installed

    "The only reason I will not give this a one star review is because it is very fun to shoot and has a great kick to it. With that being said the internals arent that great at all I put 500 rounds through it and the entire nozzle assembly blew up inside the gun and shot out of the side of the gun and every time I shoot the recoil is so intense it collapses the stock so now I need to get a new nozzle assembly and a new stock those are cheap fixes but the gun was only shot ten times thats just sad and the mags for this leak like crazy I just bought two new ones and they dont hold green gas for anymore than an hour

    "First off I have put over 15k rounds through this gun and would like to expressly say that it's one of my favorites to date.

    The Good:
    Price point- vs the KWA it's over $100 cheaper, magazine-wise each magazine is half the price; $25 cheaper
    Size- I own both the KWA MP7 and SMG8 and i prefer the larger size that this gun offers, the gun is about 1.5" longer, 0.5" wider and
    marginally taller, making it feel more natural in your hands (being the larger person that I am.
    Accuracy- CQB the gun is spot on, though it does shoot a bit hot 390-410 (I'm HPA tapped, so that's not an issue for me) don't really
    need to mess with anything. When it comes to outside hop up may need some adjusting, and replacing soon after using it.
    Recoil- Feels like a standard .22 recoil, not much else to say about it.

    The Bad:
    CQB Playability- If you're planning on using this gun for CQB you must HPA tap it, or find the air flow mod for it(which I read about but never really looked into) because it shoots too high to play indoors shooting at around 390-410 stock with .20's with green gas.
    Reliability- showed signs of wear after 3000 rounds, and started having issues around 5000, requiring upgrades bringing the initial price
    of gun in the neighborhood of the KWA and VFC mp7
    Soft internals- Replaced sears and levers for aftermarkets (Z-Parts / RA-Tech Steel Replacement Trigger) once my safety stopped
    working, due to the parts being too soft.
    Stock recoil bounce- the KWA and VFC mp7's both suffer from this in addition to the We tech smg8, when shooting a lot the recoil
    wears out the notches in the stock rendering stock adjustment useless and needing replacing after prolonged use.
    Grip comfort- the grip on this gun digs into my hands and makes it a bit uncomfortable to hold, camo-form solved the problem for me,
    though I felt it needed mentioning.

    Personal thoughts:
    Overall I think it's a great gun despite the bad things I heard about it when purchasing, and it feels and operates better than the KWA MP7 once you put the aftermarket upgrades (Z-Parts / RA-Tech Steel Replacement Trigger). If you plan on playing CQB it will be easier to get the KWA mp7 and get the low-flow CQB bolt for it.
