"impressed is a good word to describe my feelings about this rifle.
it comes fully assembled so you get to experience it right from the box. nothing loose or wobbly. it's heavy (much more than i expected) especially for the synthetic stock. the factory battery fits easily behind the well-built butt plate, with room to spare. it actually needs some padding to keep it from clunking around. out of curiosity, i tried fitting a 7.2v 3000mAh battery from an RC car into the compartment. it fit like a glove (a tight one) and added some nice balance/weight to the rear. since the 7.2v racks the stock gearbox same as the 8.4v, i think i'll keep it there. i don't plan on needing a RoF faster than my finger.
the imitation wood stock looks pretty convincing but it does have some flex when you grip it and the seams are visible and uneven.
rear peep sight is adjustable up/down and left/right…and it's solid. the moving charging handle is a neat "plus" but kinda unnecessary. sure, it adds to the realism but it is 100% cosmetic—no internals are accessible under it. the spring holding the handle shut is fairly weak (i guess) because it allows the (rather heavy) assembly to slide back and forth as you run or when you quickly rest the butt on the ground.
using my uncalibrated eye-chrono, it shoots 0.25g BBs at around "fast". it also shoots them pretty accurately. i was testing batteries by plinking rocks (~2.5"x1.5") off the top of a fence. they were only 30' away but i was still impressed. i stayed impressed as i stretched the distance out to around 100' at a sheet of paper.
i'm very happy with this purchase. if you're on the fence, i say go for it! "Ive had this weapon for 5 years now and still running the same way it did out of the box! Ive used this gun every where from cqb to field to sniping and hasn't failed once on me. This gun is hands down the best m14 you can buy that has reliability and accuracy that goes hand to hand right of the box. Honestly i haven't even had to open up my gun over all these years, which is rare even in high $$$$ aegs. Soon I'm looking forward to putting a miracle barrel in just to tighten the pattern a little, but you really dont even need it.
Durable as a rock
Accurate as a $1000 aeg
Authentic look and feel
Rate of fire is true to the real steel
none what so ever!
Overall opinion: ......why are you still looking at the reviews? Go buy one to see yourself! It wont disappoint!!!
Also get a rail system over the bolt so you can use optics/scopes, because youll need them if youre sniping "I've had this rifle for about 6 months and I must say it is an excellent DMR for me. I got this in a trade and because I'm the repair man for everybody when they have a broken gun or gear, so they gave me this to fix and keep. This thing is a work horse, with everything I've put it through I'm surprised it still running. I drilled holes and adapted some rails to the front and it's pretty sweet. (no $ for aftermarket rails) You may also want to upgrade to a better battery. The one it comes with dies a little early and has a slower ROF than other batteries.
-Customizable (for creative minds)
-Not a very common gun (around me anyway)
-Durable (internally) been through rain and mud, everything else
-One side if the stock broke...fixed it...broke again (for a good reason)
-It's longer than other guns, even some snipers, you may hit it on some trees n' stuff when running.
-You may want to be tough to have this. It's front heavy. I'm perfectly fine with it, but others are uncomfortable using it. Read More Reviews Write a Review
