"I pre-ordered this gun back on the last day of May and got it two weeks afterwards when i shot it out of the box for the first time the spread of bbs was insane and was impossible to hit a target at 20 ft.. I read other reviews and found out this was a common problem. So I sent is back and got a new one but this one also had a problem. when ever the bolt was pulled back the spring wouldn't lock back and the gun wouldn't fire. it would also cause the bolt to jerk back when ever i pulled it back. for $160+ I was expecting better quality. Now i wouldn't trust Matrix with more than 30$ "First let me just say this is about my 11th gun but my first bolt action sniper rifle.
after some upgrades..... out of the box its got no more range than an AEG but after some love and TLC, it could put out some decent range.
Just for anyone wondering this gun is OEM by WELL, and is also known as the WELL MB4401/2. The external quality is superb.
The internals of the gun are pretty good stock. the only piece that broke immediately was the BB feed ramp, and that was easily remedied by pointing the bore downward when cocking the next round (some bbs may fall out into the body of the gun if pointed flat or upward).
The parts compatibility is easy, TM L96 parts for the cylinder, cylinder head piston, spring, spring guide and trigger/ trigger box. VSR parts are required for the barrel hop up, and trigger Sears.
I would recommend finding a TM OEM hop up to replace the WELL unit for much better consistency. after some basic parts replacement i can hit up to 230 feet or so accurately with .36 BBs, and i plan to RHop and get a stronger spring and go farther.
long story short it has the potential to be an AMAZING airsoft weapon.
GREAT solid construction.
AMAZING LOOKS- i mean lets face it this is so much better looking than a plain jane VSR.
parts compatability is there, just not stateside
Out of the box performance is comparable to an average AEG.
Parts compatability is there, but not from a stateside website.
weak BB feed ramp. (aim bore down when reload to fix, or easy to replace). "Great Gun!
I'm usually a run and gun dude, but after reading about snipers I thought it would be neat to get a beginner's sniping rifle and after a lot of looking and reading reviews I decided on this rifle combo.
The rifle it self has a nice weight to it and goes together quite easily which is a blessing cause the the instruction sheet is not the greatest. The previous reviews are accurate so I will not rehash information, but will go in to the scope.
The scope in the picture and the video is not the scope that comes in the combo there are no markings on who manufactures the scope either, but it is a nice scope not great but something you can live with for a bit. The scope is adjustable for bondage and elevation with a penny or dime which can be a drawback, but I'm happy with it so far.
Focusing is accomplished by first loosening a copper screw on the right-hand side BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO MAKE IT TOO LOOSE just enough to allow you to adjust the focus which brings me to the next point. If you try to bring the focus in too close the scope will blur, but for the price the package is not to bad I love it and plan to first up grade the scope and then the bolt and spring for more info on the gun it self read some of the other reviews they say the same thing I'm thinking of l just wanted to give more information about the scope Read More Reviews Write a Review
