"I waited until after I fielded this at least once so I could give a 100% honest review. This is my 5th year playing airsoft, I'd always used my buddies guns but I decided to finally get myself into the sport more. This is my first gun I purchased myself, so I did a lot of research before buying this.
This gun is one of THE BEST guns I have ever used. It hits hard even at amazing distance. This gun performs better than High-End AEG's. Part of the enemy team was a 13 man squad who go to milsim events monthly, they run completely upgraded p*'s and I was out-ranging them. This gun should NOT be $100 as I had an amazing experience with it. I ended the day with 30+ kills. It Chrono'd at about 420fps with .2g BB's. I play on an 8 acre field and it was even to strong to run full-auto, I had to run semi all day.
I was hitting targets accurately at 150+ ft and fairly accurately at 200+ ft. I even took out a couple snipers. Ive put 3k rds thru it now.
Amazing range (Accurate at well over 150ft)
Spacious battery compartment/easy to get to battery. (Butt plate has fake screws, just slide off)
Hits hard (420fps with .2g)
Out-ranges high end AEG's
Looks like a real AK
Sturdy build (dust cover slightly wobbly, but WONT fall off on its own)
Decent ROF (around 12 with a 8.4v)
DID I MENTION IT'S ONLY $100?!?!
Other than the slight wobble of the dust cover I have no cons
Honestly buy this gun right now. Whether you are brand new to airsoft or an old vet. This gun shoots far, hits hard, and it's only 100 bucks. If anything use it for a backup.
I had a lot of doubts as well buying a gun that is so cheap. But you will NOT regret this purchase!
"First of all, I think this gun is a 9/10.
This gun was my first airsoft gun. I looked up videos on it and was amazed by the fire rate and accuracy. I bought it, along with a 9.6v Tenergy battery & smart charger, (Both of which I recommend for this gun.) and loved this gun. The 8.6v that comes with it is pretty good, but a 9.6 makes it fire noticeably faster and the trigger response is snappier. I never used the sling I got with it, though. When I got the box, it had UKArms on the front of the box, which I thought was strange. I didn't care that much, as I was already blowing through .20g bullets with it. The Hop-Up is easy to use, just slide open the charging handle and adjust the dial. (Towards you is hop, towards the barrel is normal.) It shot awesome, it looked killer, and I would play with it pretty much every day for 3 weeks, about 10 mins at a time. Now, for the cons.
About a week ago, I realized how something with a metal body and metal receiver could go for $100-110. That was not the parts, but who put them together. This gun was MADE by JG. They're generally known for making crappy airsoft guns, as they're an airsoft replica manufacturer in China or something. (I have no clue, just that they're in Aisa.) This gun puts them in a much better light, though it has some problems. The triangle sight became a bit wobbly after a month and a half (Not a huge wobble, but noticeable and annoying to some.) The mag well is also a bit wobbly, and you can't grab the gun by the magazine (You shouldn't for any gun but this one especially.) or else the magazine MAY fall out and spray BBs everywhere. Those were the only flaws I've noticed so far, but I'm sure some will emerge later. I expect this gun to last a year to a 2 years. (I could be completely wrong, but it should last at LEAST a year.)
I reccomend this gun to anybody looking to get into airsoft who has a small budget ($100-$150) and wants to get the most bang for their buck. If you have a larger budget, ($150+) I suggest looking for other guns, as you could get better guns made by brands like Valken. Otherwise, get this gun. It is a must-buy for someone who is OK with a decent fire rate, and just wants a gun that will shoot accurately. This gun will satisfy the needs of most beginners and may even over-preform to people who've had bad experiences with sporting goods store's "airsoft guns" (AKA overpriced cheap plastic crap that shoots 200 fps and shoots about 2 bbs/sec and CLAIMS to be good). If this is you, BUY THIS GUN!
. Accurate (Can hit a soda can from about 50-60 ft away with good aim)
. Powerful (380-400 FPS with .20g BBs)
(I recommend Valken BBs, DON'T BUY ANY CROSMAN BBS OR GUNS (Game Face is Crosman) OR ANY DEPT. STORE BBS.)
. Fire Rate is Decent (11-14 RPS)
. Full Metal Internals, Receiver, and Outer Barrel
. Fun to use
. Cheaper than most guns of the same quality (It's a steal, take it!)
. Realistic Weight (6-7 lbs)
. Looks Real & Deadly (You look & feel like a Bad*** when holding and shooting it.)
. Mag is a high cap, holding 600 rounds (Could be a con for some because of the winding, but it holds a ton of ammo.
. Made by JG (The horror!)
. Mag well/front sight is wobbly
. You don't have one yet (I can sense it, you will buy one soon... hopefully...)
. Doesn't have any rail space (Not a huge issue, it's a beginner gun, it doesn't really NEED any add-ons)
. Sights aren't adjustable left or right (Or so I've discovered, it could be there)
This gun is good for beginners, with a good rps and great accuracy, but thing may get wobbly in the future. Overall, buy this gun of your budget is low, and are just getting into airsoft to see what it's all about. If you are a beginner, GET THIS GUN.
"An amazing rifle that competes with high-end aegs. While the battery, inner barrel, and sling that come with it are sub-par, the durability, part compatibility, and faux wood finish, coupled with a stunning performance make this rifle the absolute best airsoft gun for the price.
