"I bought this gun about 2 1/2 years ago from another website. This gun is amazing. I have used it this long and havent had to replace anything on it. Only problem I had was the blow back broke about 6 months ago. It looked cheap and I expected it to break a lot sooner than it did. But, when it broke it increased the rate of fire due to less strain on the gearbox. Also the blow back is very easy to disengage if you would prefer. The body is made of very high quality plastic and mine has taken a beating with few signs of wear. With a 9.6v battery, with blowback I was shooting about 900 rpm and without about 950. This gun is LiPo ready but I have yet to have tested it with a LiPo battery. I can only imagine the rate of fire this beast could produce. This gun shoots an average of 400-430 fps. I let a friend borrow it for a game, that was my mistake, she made me bleed. All fun though. The main frustration with this gun is the battery compartment. It is difficult to get a 9.6v 1600mah battery in the front grip.
High quality body
High quality internals
Shoots accurately at about 150 feet.
decent ROF (Rate of Fire) 900 rpm
Great field FPS 400-430, not designed for CQB
Decent weight, not too heavy, doesnt tire you out when running
Comes very well packaged from ARES, not to discredit Evike but they need to learn how to pack their boxes for shipping.
Blow back will eventually break, but (PRO) its easy to disengage and will increase rof if you do
Battery compartment is small, a standard 9.6v 1600mah battery is a tight fit. I suggest nun-chuck style.
Overall: This gun is a beast, she's a head turner and she's my baby. "Hi guys! Here´s my story:
Bought this one month ago.
The externals of the gun are simply awsome. Durable, precise finishing, HK trademarks. I replaced the magwell (STAR, as the Battleaxe has different color to match the gun) to use it with the M4 120rd E-MAGs. Then I bought G&P sniper style folding stock to accomodate the battery in the rear side of the gun for better balance. Also I changed the foregrip to G&P Stubby QD as the original one is pretty big, and its not looking too good on the gun, and its not tactical either. Plus the EoTech 553 looks awsome on it. Only con is that it does not come with metal flash hider replacement in the box.
The internals (and here comes some major cons):
The motor - The pinion gear broke just after 100 rounds - changed to Matrix magnum motor
The gear set - is probably the best thing on the internals
The spring release button - its somewhere mechanicaly stuck, so it just don´t work
The microswitch - can´t attach mosfet
The small lever, that connects the trigger and microswitch - I just hope some company will make aluminium one, cause its plastic and the spring that holds it, is sliding off it.
The cylinder set - change it all! its the worst part of the gun:
The piston is poor quality
The piston head leaks everywhere
The cylinderhead - has smaller diameter of the nozzle then the aftermarkets, so for having an aluminium nozzle with o-ring buy another head
The spring is good - comparing I would say about M115
The blowback - Very good! I believe its durable enough, it gives very nice kick, and it sounds amazing, just everyone will stop running, shooting or whatever just to see who has the hammer!
Its a stunning looking gun and I am not going to get rid of it. But it will cost me. Quite a lot. But when you have the money, and passion for something like the G36 then everything other is pointless.
Well, as I have said - everything can be changed instead of one thing - the microswitch. So this is probably the only thing I am aware of - due to a lot of negative topics on the web.
I am giving 4/5 because of the time and money it will take to make it a reliable gun. "Not gonna lie, its possibly the best rifle i owned thus far, but two problems.
1: Strong use results in a hot motor and internals getting hot fairly fast.
2: The blowback seems fragile and the "SNAP" that blows back seems not very sturdy, feels like it will crack and break under this use.
other then those 2 problems, it seems and i hope, that this will prove to be a truth worthy companion in combat for a long time to come. Read More Reviews Write a Review
