"Love this gun. Maybe a bit biased but I find almost nothing wrong with it.

The 2 magazines work great. Zero misfires. Scope needs sighting but I never use it. Shoots about 340 fps. I play cqb so its perfect for me.

Only thing is I don't like the green paint. Easily fixed.

Great gun and as an added bonus, I'm the only one that has it. Many compliments.

Highly recommended.

"I just received this gun this week and I can say I am already in love with it.

The weight and feel of it are perfect

the adjustable stock came out once (friend being a little rough with it) but went right back in with no negative effects

the scope is great (not as perfectly tuned as some people say, but easy enough to adjust)

accurate as hell (100+ feet out still hitting every shot)

consistent even at full auto (see above)

hop-up easy to access

selector snaps nicely to firing modes (i haven't seen any of the problem other people have with it falling off yet)

a friend of mine has had a spring SM8 (i don't know what company exactly) and for as long as I've known him, the handle on top (where the iron sights are) has been snapped, so i was worried that might happen to mine. after a few days of handling mine, i don't see that being a problem any time soon. the whole gun is made of a very durable plastic. Overall, if you are looking at this gun now and wondering if you should get it, the answer is YES!

"Despite being a huge XM8 fan, this gun has more problems than features.

1. Right out of the box, the buttstock is broken. The plastic outer housing is too weak to hold any pressure in your shoulder, so it splits open and fully retracts the stock. had to use tape to fix.

2. The upper part of the foregrip is the same way. Flimsy, and splitting.

3. the sight that comes with it has practically no eye relief. You have to be right up on it for it to be even remotely useful.

Now, here comes the best part.

After using the gun in ONE skirmish, two major problems had already developed.

4. The fire selector wouldn't work on semi, only auto.

5. The gun had already stripped and gear, and wouldn't shoot anymore.

Last time I buy SRC.

On a better, note, the magazines are nice, and the duckbill flash hider look great on my M4.

SRC SM8 Airsoft AEG Rifle w/ Two Hi-Cap Mags - OD

Originally designed under the US Army's Objective Individual Combat Weapon (OICW) program; the XM8 was a part of a complete weapon system which was then later separated from the program to be a stand alone weapon. The XM8 was a weapons concept the US Army was hoping to replace the standard M4 / M16 weapons platforms for the standard infantry rifle in favor of a much more modular and lightweight space age design. The goal was for a cheaper, lighter, and easier to maintain all-in-one weapons platform that can be easily re-configured into multiple variations to fill various roles on the battlefield from a short barreled PDW to a bipod equipped support weapon.
