    "I just got this the other day, not through evike but through a trade, and if you get the RA-Tech trigger assembly it will shoot just like it should. I used to own a WE 416 and they've come a long way. I get plenty of shots through each mag. I also have a KWA LM4 and I prefer my WE M16. It's such a fun gun to use!

    "Great project gun!

    I've been waiting a couple months to write a review so I could get a more detailed and accurate account of this rifle's features.

    Good Stuff:
    -TONS of aftermarket parts. You can upgrade anything you need without worrying about not finding what you want
    -Realistic weight, recoil, overall feel of what you want in a training rifle/GBB
    -Accuracy has good POTENTIAL. As always, upgrades will be needed, but stock performance exceeds expectations
    -Stock FPS over 400. If this is a problem, Tokyo Marui sells affordable NPAS systems to lower it for field regulations

    Stuff I had to work out (notice how it's not BAD STUFF):
    MAGS will leak at first, and be difficult to load. Solved by lubing all the O-Rings and internals with silicone oil and buying a decent speed loader.

    BOLT CATCH doesn't always work. HAven't found DIY mods for this, but there are very good replacement STEEL parts to fix this dysfunctionality

    MAGS also will wobble inside magwell. Just take electrical tape and wrap once around the perimeter of the mag where it seats inside the magwell and that will stop it (also prevents them from accidentally sliding out).

    FRONT SIGHT POST?GAS BLOCK needs some attention. Make sure the screw underneath is tightened or else it will wobble. IF the handguard begins to wobble, make sure the delta ring is tight (the wrench looking tool included in the box is designed to fix this).

    HOP UP is a bit tricky to adjust. If you're creative, you can stick an allen wrench down the chamber through the breech and do it that way, otherwise you will have to disassemble the front end of the rifle to remove the inner barrel and hop up completely.

    Overall, this gun isn't perfect, which is expected. But it's extremely easy to work with, and I would recommend buying because of all the tech videos out there to help you if something breaks (which something will) along with parts to fix it. Remember, it will take an equal mix of DIY mods and pre-made upgrade parts to make it shoot well.
