"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.

-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.

-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.

"This is probably one of the best guns I've ever bought for the price. While stock it doesn't perform the best, it easily took a M120 spring and the stock motor pulled it easily with a 9.6 batt.

Stock it shot 310 w/ .25's and with a M120 installed, it shoots 370 w/ .25's.

Look online some tutorials to mod some M16 mags and you'll be set.

Easily handled M120 spring with no after market motor.
Rather sturdy plastic.
Cylinder is Ver7.
Ver1 "modified" gearbox is upgrade-able with Ver2,3,7 parts.
Simple Dremel work to make the magwell to accept M16 mags, and to make M16 mags work with the mag release (and can still be used in M16's).

Wiring was soldered to motor.

Which you don't need to upgrade the motor anyway. Seriously though, this thing only need a M120 and a tightbore w/ new bucking and you will be all set.

"So I personally bought the FAMAS; my first airsoft aeg, because of my love of the look and playing video games with it.

So far I've put everything together, and got to target shoot with it a few times.

Pros: Relatively cheap. Accurate. Bull-pup(personal opinion), sturdy but not too heavy.

Cons: Not digging the battery compartment, iron sights are difficult to use. No top rail mount is featured in this specific bundle. So if you plan on upgrading, youll have to buy the expensive rail mount of $40ish dollars. The FAMAS has specific mags that can only be used with the gun itself, and you get one mag with the gun, but mags are pretty cheap at $15, so no big deal. Also, loading the mag in, is kinda tricky, but youll just get used to it.

As of right now, i have gotten to try it out at a field, but will be soon, will provide update on performance.

If you're a big fan of the FAMAS, and plan to upgrade or use alot in airsoft, i reccomend buying the bundle scope and top rail aeg FAMAS for $200. Youll save money overall.
