"This thing is without a doubt, the most intimidating gun I have used in a game. It's monsterous in both size and firepower. 5000 rds of hell. ~4.5 feet of hell. 23 ibs of hell. This gun is seriously something from hell. People fear being on the other end of the barrel. People praise you being on their team. This thing is a solid work of metal and power. Never have I experienced the amount of attention I get when I bring this gun to the field. Eyes immediately turn towards you and at times it gets uncomfortable. But oh well.
-Big, Huge, Monsterous
-Fire rate on 9.6v intellect is plain evile with 5000 bbs
-Eye catcher and moral booster for your team
-Sends people running, I am not lying
-I am 6"3' and I can shoot this like a rifle semi comfortably
-All metal except for motor grip, carry handle, stock
-Definite fear factor
-Big, Huge, Monsterous (high chance of bumping people, rocks, trees, and getting snagged in bushes)
-Fire rate thing sucks, comes witha bypass plug which I used
-Eye catcher, bound to make you public enemy #1
-Heavy, sling is a must
-Chews through 9.6v before ONE mag is even done!!! Bring a spare... Or get that 10.8v 5000mah which I am thinking on doing
-Bipod fell of during a game because those screws that hold it in are terrible. I lost the bipod because I was running to cover a weak side that was getting flanked and it fell sometime in between. Sucks for me but beware the bipod
-Big, Huge, Monster- Oh wait I already said that it's Big, Huge, and Monsterous didn't I?
And as the couple of reviewers below me stated... People really don't know what this gun is. I almost didn't want to believe that until a group of people actually asked me if this was a modified M2 Browning...... Yes!!! This is definitely a hand held 50cal machine gun!!! No... Not even. A custom 240? No. SVD? Nah man. M249? ... No (I have a CA249 para as well...) What is it?!?! A PKM... "First off, I'd just like to say this gun is amazing. It is more accurate, gets more range, and with the right battery, shoots as fast as custom guns do. I recommend buying the 10.8V 5000 mah SAW battery, as that will sustain a whole box magazine of 5000 rounds. The only thing is that the SAW battery sticks out of the box mag, so you'll have to buy the dummy 7.62 rounds to conceal it. Out of the box, it chronos around 450 FPS with 0.2s, so it's recommended to buy a lower compression spring. It shoots at around a thousand rounds per minute with the SAW battery, and when it does, people will go running. I've seen it first hand. This is the perfect gun for yourself or a squad. It will really get you out of trouble with no problem. Now for the pros and cons:
-5000 round box mag
-everything is metal except for the carry handle, motor grip, and stock
-built-in removable bipod
-rof adjustor (but be warned, if you use more than an 11.1V battery, you will have to remove the rof adjustor)
-looks awesome and intimidating
-extremely long barrel = plenty of range and accuracy
-easy access to internals
-carry handle's swivel makes it more balanced and easy to carry with one hand
-sounds awesome when firing
-the bipod spin catch can get easily stripped
-orange tip is harder to remove than your normal AEG
-recommend purchasing the reinforced trigger switch because if you hold down the trigger for too long, it will be stuck firing, which you will have to repeatedly pull the trigger to stop it
-no rail system for optics
-no rear sling attachment (I attached mine around the top of the stock)
-weighs 23 lbs., but with a good sling you should be fine
-awkward to fire standing up, but you shouldn't be firing while standing to begin with. This gun is more of a mount on barrier or ground and fire, like SAWs are supposed to be used.
-rof adjuster is where you would hold it if you were standing and firing, but like I said, that's not what it's meant for.
-like someone else said- not many people know what it is. M240? No. SVD? Nope.
All in all, it is definitely worth the buy. You will dominate the field and be feared. "First off, I can tell you this is my new favorite gun. I can say that I took advantage of the 4th of July 23% off deal and I can tell ya, I couldn't use it until recently at a Big Op, where I learned that the FPS really was around 450, not the listed above, but either way, it definitely fits the role of support gunner. With it, I held off in a bunker against enemy forces for a total of 4 hours, which the only reason I lost the hill was because the battery died. This hit HARD, people from other states said they were happy not to go against it.
Great (adjustable) ROF
449.5 FPS (To be exact)
Intimidating as heck (In favor of other profane words.)
5,000 Round Box Mag (With an accumulated total of 8 minutes continuous, suppressive fire)
Hop up is adjustable (That should be a given)
All steel construction (Cept for feeding tube in magazine, handles and stock)
Heavy (23 LBs)
Battery drains slightly faster with auto-wind (So buy an extra one)
Little stiff on bipod preparing
BBs have a chance at falling below the feeding mechanism (The 3 screws on the bottom can help with that)
The orange tip is plastic
Other than that, it's all good and PERFECT for a support gunner role. Read More Reviews Write a Review
