"My first airsoft pistol ever. Took 8 days for ups to ship it, but I felt good until I opened the box. They decided to give me a used one with fingerprints, scratches and oil. I'm guessing that some one used it and returned just to try it, and I am not very happy with that. This is a review for the gun, not for the service.
A noob's feeling towards the gun:
Comes with everything except for gas
Everything is interchangeable with third party parts
True double trigger
Plastic slide(less recoil+faster slide but less sturdy)
Does not look good for me
Popular(may be the cause for the used gun to be shipped to me)
Green gas mag
"There are a lot of great reviews out there so no need for me to tell you how great this gun is...I just wanted to clear up on thing
But plate on mags
Hop up charger
Beaver tail safety
All internal mechanism
Everything not listed
This gun is a beast, and can be upgraded if you do not like the look or feel.
I use this (with about $400 of upgrading) as my cqb primary...it is epic.
Also works well even below freezing. No cycling issues and can make it through the full mag!!!
Best pistol I have ever owned. It makes ALL outher brands look like crap!
"This is truly a phenomenal pistol. I was stuck between buying this and the KWA M9 PTP, and (not to hate on the M9) I'm glad I picked this. Stock range is approximately 175 feet, roughly measured.
When I first opened the box, I was surprised at the heft of the gun. Being that it has a plastic slide, I expected it to be light. It has an aluminum frame and a plastic grip (which does what it's supposed to, but it could be more comfortable). With the gun, I ordered two 52rd WE-Tech magazines, which are both leak-free and solid.
-FPS around 330
-size (I like big pistols)
-absolutely worth the money, this is my best airsoft purchase to date
-the rear sight is all black, with no white dots
I've had the pistol for around a year now, and the slide cracked near the rear sight at around the six month mark after intensive use. I play around once a month, and I used this as my primary for all of my games, including two 3-day Ops.
When my slide cracked, I replaced it with this slide:
and it fit with no modification, a big plus. However, it must put more strain on the outer barrel, because upon shooting it for the first time, part of the barrel fell off! It wasn't a big deal, though. The barrel is two pieces, held together by friction. When one piece fell off, I just super-glued it back on, and now it's like new.
As a note for those who don't know, the Tokyo Marui magazine uses a valve different than the WE-Tech magazine. When filling the Marui mag with propane (which this thing can take no-problemo) it sounds like it's leaking. However, that is supposed to happen.
If you buy this pistol, you won't regret it.
