"Let me start off by saying I typically don't write reviews, but after having this rifle for a few years seeing it on the evike website again it made me want to share my experience.
When I first bought this rifle I was so excited to shoot with it and really enjoyed all of the backyard target shooting/airsoft games. It was a lot of fun to play with and still is! :)
So let me start off with the accessories. The Bipod was okay, but as many others said it is indeed wobbly. The scope I traded with a friend for a simple 4x32 (we both just preferred each others scopes rather than that of our own). Although for a scope it was good enough to use so if money is short no worries.
Now for the gun itself. The magazine would always pop out a little from the bottom. Function wise this did not effect the rifle, but it would get annoying sometimes. As a mechanical engineering student I love to take apart all my airsoft guns as I did the same to this one. I must say I was absolutely amazed how well the gun performed considering the poor quality of internal parts. For starters the barrel spacers are just a bunch of foam rings that do absolutely nothing to support the barrel, so being creative an cheap I made my own spacers out of electrical tape( costs 1 dollar and will minimize the vibrations in the barrel). Next up is the actual body of the rifle. With the gun weighing in around 10lb and being as long as it is, the plastic body was always experiencing torque, which rubs the plastic together making it squeak. To fix this problem I took the rifle body completely apart and found that there were two metal blocks to balance/give the rifle some weight, I took these blocks out and filled the entire rifle body with squishy foam to prevent plastic rubbing as well as cushion the internals. I then proceeded to upgrade the length of the inner barrel. It was a $25 aluminium 600mm 6.03 barrel (I didn't want to spend a lot of money at the time). I also bought a thread adapter as well as a silencer. This worked out really well, gave the gun some extra range, better accuracy, and a bit of extra style. Although I needed to put in more barrel spacers because the aluminum barrel causes a lot more vibrations and made it much louder. Also if you get a silencer and extended inner barrel, use the tube that the inner barrel came in and cut the length of your silencer. Then wrap electrical tap around it and make a support for the barrel in your silencer, it works really really well! :)
Unfortunately a while back I broke the hopup when I took the rife apart. So I just bought an angel custom Hopup, a hopup bucking, and a new 6.01 650mm inner barrel! I can't wait for my package to come and install all of the new internals! :D And i'm sure i'll doing a lot more of upgrades in the future with evike! I'll update you on that when I install it all! "This gun shoots well and the scope that comes with it is amazing. The body is amazing since it is full metal however the internals are plastic.
great accuracy once scope is adjusted
great gun if you get a metal gearbox for it
shoots farther than most aegs
gearbox was plastic and due to the high fps broke in like 500 shots
adjusting the scope can be a pain
fps might be 500 with .12s but with .3s only 360 and .28s 380 (need heavy bbs for accuracy) "This is a decent sniper when it works, and I'm having trouble getting it to actually work for a full game. I've used many snipers and this one is worst one I've ever used. It jams constantly and is a pain to unjam. It also shoots only 380-450 fps after I removed the air restrictor, well under the advertised 450-530. The bb's fly straight for about 80 ft before dropping, which isn't terribly bad. The reason that this gun even gets 2 stars is because of the externals. The scope is very clear and easy to sight in. The bipod broke after my first game, but that was my fault, not the bipod's. The gun is comfortable and well weighted. The bolt is also pretty easy to pull back for a sniper. Despite the awesome externals, you need to be able to shoot the gun reliably to be a good sniper and this gun is EXTREMELY far from reliable. I would not recommend this gun to anyone because the jamming is just that bad.
Lower FPS than advertised
Do not buy this gun unless you plan on changing out all of the internals to fix the jamming issue. Read More Reviews Write a Review
