"I purchased this several months ago, based mainly on the reviews, the look and the durability. I have not been disappointed. Out of the box, it shoots as advertised, with impressive accuracy. It does come with an 8.4v battery and cheapy charger. The internals are good.
So far, I've only upgraded the barrel (to a 6.03mm diameter, 310mm length steel), and added a 9.6v battery. No problems with jams, shots flying off into space, etc. It's fairly easy to maintain and disassemble. The barrel swap took maybe 8 minutes (mostly because I take my time the first go around to make sure I understand all the parts).
In regards to the smaller VN style mag, the notch on the side that locks it into place is about 1mm too low. If you bang it straight up, or pull it out in the direction of the mag release, the mag will slip into place. It's just a mistake on the mag.
As for the mag well pin falling out, that's DEFINITELY true. What I did was pull it out, spray it will a little LockTite, slide it back in from the other direction (insert from the right side of the gun, instead of the left), then cover it with a small (few inches) strip of black electrical tape (just in case). The only time you need to remove the pin is to swap the mag well type, or get at the internals.
The iron sites are very low, pretty much unusable. But that's okay, there's enough rail space for a site or scope.
Highly recommend. I love the way this gun looks and shoots. "Ok so this is my third airsoft gun , I must admit its like futeristic ak 47 its been in damp humid rainy weather with mud thhat took days to get off my BRUS! ( battle ready uniform that's digital but not used in active service branch's subdued digital). I,m impressed with it I used a 9.6 volt 1600 mini nuncunk which will fit, also gave it a madbull black out flash suppressor. During this rainforest weather as stated above I stress tested dumping 145 rounds. (Mid cap) I did this 12 times not breaks I mean most guns would jam from this abuse . However it s no. Godlike weapon due to the fact the pin holding the rear part of the mag holder (were you but the mag in ), fell out and caused it to stop feeding and the NHS fell out just use some black ductape or super glue if you still have the pin. (Mine was lost in the field and had to do an on the sight repair hence the ductape! ;)
If you clean the barrel before you use it and use .25 s with a mid cap or box mag it will keep shooting until the ends of the earth.
No wobbles or loose parts. Pretighten before field use to ensure long term realiability
Accurate to about 120 feet , and will DOMINATE THE SUPPRESSIVE FIRE LMG ROLE
I recommend this for airsoft zombie walks just fire and forget ...
Futuristic will always have some attention as long as you don,t admit its by echo 1
MAG pin requires modification to stay in.
Your battery will FEEL PAIN! And fail before this gun will!
Hungry for souls and bb s ( could be a pro)
Maintenaince is keen. :3
Overall this is a steal for the quality and modularity and if you can fix the rear mag holding pin keep it clean and lubed
aisoft gun will serve ANY role.$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ "Just received this and have to say...
This thing is great! Used it all day in the field on one battery charge, no jams, no problems.
Feels great in your hands with the smooth RIS on the sides near the magwell.
I put a standard m4/m16 barrel cover plate on the bottom for better feel since I don't like the feel of vertical grips
Also, very SOLID. No wobble. None. It is mostly plastic yes, but very strong plastic that I am not worried about breaking.
Accuracy was fairly good for it's length, and it chrono'd in at it's advertised 350-380 fps.
I absolutely recommend this gun for anyone who is a G36/SL8 fan!
Quick Pro and Con list:
-Solid construction, it's gonna be tough to break this.
-Good accuracy for it's relatively short barrel.
-Proper FPS for most fields out of box.
-Enough rail space for anything... seriously..
-Sharing mags with 90% of airsoft players is a plus.
-You're getting a ton of conversion parts for a ridiculously low price... no wonder it sold out!
-The solid stock with thumb hole is not for everyone.(But it's the main reason I bought it!) It requires a lot of wrist stamina to hold this gun all day... my arm is still sore a couple days later!
-Only a single sling point on the stock/receiver. Some folks don't like 1-Point slings, I got over it.
-The stock stinks to high heaven like a plastic factory! (When it's open.) Hope that fades...
Awesome Customer Service:
-When I un-boxed it, the 190 round mag WOULD NOT push into the magazine well... I called EVIKE and without question was sent a mid cap 190 round replacement. After using the mags that fit for a day, i must have worn down the magazine well, because now the half mag fits... Sorry EVIKE!! I'll make it up to you by buying more stuff!
