3 Customer Reviews "Be very cautious when buying this gun. When I got it it was perfect. I hadn't shot it yet but the overall esthetics look amazing. THE ONE ISSUE, which is honestly probably the biggest issue is that my gun does not firing correctly. I hooked it up to my 9.4v butterfly type battery that was fully charged and it never shot. So I did some testing. The power was getting to the trigger and it was fine but when I pulled the trigger it never worked. On the off occasion that it finally did shoot, it would shoot for like a couple seconds on semi-auto and then the trigger seized up. I am very disappointed in this gun and I wish it had better performance but it isn't worth the amount of money it costs. "Very good looking gun, at the moment im just zeroing it in and adding some tac equipment to it. looks way better than the AR-16 im used to back in the days 92.
now for the initial goodies
shoots straight as an arrow
out of the box 420fps. with a 9.6 v 1600mah 865rpm
selector switch is iffy gets gummed up now and then
tan is the new black
did i say beautiful gun ?
got some weight to it , i think grip pod is necessary for its size.
overall i am pleased with its performance. Would like to add a longer tight bore barrel 650mm perhaps? and a silencer to add to the wickedness of this beast.
When in my hands it takes me back to the best and worst of times. "I don't like put up pros and cons of this and that i.e., the gun is amazing; so instead, I'll just put down my own experiences.
First off, the Sniper Support Rifle (SSR) does a good job of weeding out the other guys you go up against. I've brought this gun to a few events where dudes would just bounce half way through because with a good scope, the right camo, and a spotter, the SSR pins the opposition down pretty good. I let my friend borrow my SSR once and with my 50mm scope I didn't have a prayer; he had me and a few dudes zerod in - we couldn't go anywhere until we had another unit flank my friend.
The gun is huge. The picture doesn't do a justice. When you pick this thing up its DANG GINA!
You can use the SSR for both sniper or support or both during an event. I use full auto for support roles and semi auto for sniper roles, but whatever.
Obviously with this gun shooting over 400 fps, some fields have rules for sniper distance/range limits, and some places don't let you roll with full auto enabled specifically with the SSR, so this AEG isn't something you can't run around with at a CQB event obviously. It's an intimidating beast.
As an upgrade, I would recommend a 509/510mm tight bore. Write a Review
