"The magazine it came with rarely works. You constantly have to remove the magazine, wind the bottom of it, put it back in. Take it back out, double check to make sure there isn't a jam, pull the trigger, listen to the gearbox work, take it out again, put it back in., wind the magazine while it is inside, and maybe then about 15 BB's will fly before you have to start this again.

I also bought two extra magazines with it, seeing as that I might need to reload a few times. All the magazines are the same, and they all have the same problems.

The moment it was out of the box, it was also not even shooting. The battery was charged and connected (I had a smart charger) and the gearbox would refuse to function. After removing the safety part of the gun and putting it back on, it started working. I'm assuming it was loose perhaps?

The FPS and look and feel is really nice, but having to spend 45 seconds fixing a gun, 10 seconds shooting, then repeating the 45 seconds of fiddling is extremely aggravating and not worth it. Very annoyed with this purchase and still fiddling with it.

DO NOT BUY THIS GUN!!!

"Ive owned this for 6 years. This is the greatest airsoft gun EVER. It is lightweight, compact, accurate, powerful, and unbelievably reliable. Ive put 100,000 rounds out of it, easy. Not one jam. This was my first AEG, and it is by far the best. I own a A&K M60vn( Another great gun), and this is still my favorite. The FPS is just perfect for use as a all-rounder AEG, chrono'd at 288 FPS with .25 g BBs. Good for outdoor or CQB battles. I use a 9.6v NIMH brick-type battery, and the fire rate and trigger response is amazing. It performs particularly well in CQB due to it being a bullpup rifle. My only complaints are that it doesn't perform well on semi-auto when the battery is low: It will stop firing and act like its out of battery even though there is still some left. i found that if you switch to full auto and fire a few rounds then switch back to semi, it will start working again on semi. A second issue that has come up is the battery compartment is small, just barely large enough for a 9.6v NiMH 1600 mah. It will fit, but dont expect anything bigger.
Pros:
Reliable
Compact and lightweight
FPS perfect for any battle scenario
Hop-up easily accessed
Second Safety mechanism
Rate of Fire
Accuracy
Durability (even the plastic is tough!)
Affordable (why don't you have it yet????)

Cons:
Semi loses reliability with low battery
Small battery compartment
Doesn't have many customization options like M4's or AK's
I didn't get this from evike

Overall, i give this 500 out of 100 (yup, i just said that).
This is a great gun and i would recommend it to anyone, whether they are pros or noobs, young or old, new to the game or veterans looking for a fine addition to their collection

"I'll sum up the entire review now so you don't have to go through a wall of text.

The gun has nice build quality, especially durable when it needs to. Internals could use some work, as mine had a terrible gearbox locking issue, however gearboxes for this gun are EXTREMELY Cheap. Performance is great and the availability of magazines... not so much.

Pros
-Externally, the gun is made out of some pretty nice plastic in almost every part, but it does creak a little bit. It's not very noticeable during a match, as fire is going past you, and the parts that need to be metal, like the trigger, are made out of a solid metal. It's not pot metal, and it's DEFINITELY not hollow. In my opinion, it does at just a bit of weight, but hey, it adds a nice touch to it. Overall, the nice plastic and very nice metal are all pros of it.
-Internally, the gun is okay, but more on the good side. Usually, the gearbox inside of the gun brand new is amazing. It's shimmed enough to make a nice, smooth sound while shooting, and the rate of fire is great with a 9.6v, and the motor holds up very well. Stock, the spring is somewhere around the power of an M120, because I got 400+ fps. (Something you have to try is shooting the gun at night with a flashlight next to the barrel. You won't regret it.) If you ever need to replace the gearbox, you can find one on amazon for about $25, and it's like getting a hole new gun.

Cons
-Externally, the gun is a beast, but the weight is a little unrealistic and light. I wouldn't take off a point for this, but it's something to keep in mind if you're looking for a full, heavy metal replica. If you want to do a fast disassembly of the gun, be prepared to be frustrated and waste a few hours of your life. Each little hole has a different sized screw, and if you lose one, you're screwed (pun intended). The other problem I had with the externals was the battery compartment. It looks like it's huge and will hold any kind of battery. Of course, it does, but it will take some struggling to fit in any sort of large type or candy bar style battery. I'd recommend something like a butterfly type battery, or maybe think about taking off the foam in the handguard itself.
-Internally, the gearbox may not hold up. I did have some issues with the gearbox being locked up, so I decided to replace it. Thankfully, they are very available and cheap. The stock spring may not hold up for long, and the wire are soldered on the motor, meaning that they are a little delicate on the motor. Unfortunately, since this, and the TM Famas are the only AEG's to use a version 1 gearbox, very few techs will work, or even know how to work on the gun. If you do have a problem with the internals, it's worth just getting a hole new gearbox and saving yourself time.

Other thoughts
-I know that the gun is a F1 style famas, so it's not meant to take m4 style magazines, and famas mags are not that widely available, not to mention expensive; however, I do believe that there are ways to modify the gun to do so. If you are someone who likes to mess with their gun, this mod may be something t look into.
-Overall, the gun is great, and if you need to fix it, just buy a new gearbox. It's what I did, and that was probably the best decision of my airsoft life.
