"Well, this is my first AEG. Ive been doing airsoft for about 7 months now, and have not had the money for a new gun. I got a 15 buck springer with 220 fps with 20 grams. Then I got this gun. MAP sales got me the charger for free. That is great. Anyhow, the gun is sturdy, heavy, and long. The red dot is a 30mm AP that works great.
Heavy (For those who like heavy)
Great for CQB and outdoors
Shoots 380-390 FPS, website says 340-350~ (Using for CQB)
"Been playing airsoft off and on for 13 years. I have had some pretty high end stuff, and I have to say this gun is on par with it all. I got mine for a steal (previous owner bought it, 9.6v 1600 mah battery, and smart charger only to find there was no where near him to play so I bought it all for $50 on ebay). This is my favorite gun I have ever owned so far and I have had a lot. The red dot sight is good, leaves leaves a little to be wanted but still good enough to keep for a while. It is accurate pretty far out even with .20 bbs, and super accurate with .25 bbs. It's not ideal for CQB but I love it as field gun.
"First of all, don't take every detail of a review as fact: Cons can come from personal error or manufacturing error, and pros can come from personal experience as well. I've had this gun for 1/2 a year now and it is outstanding overall. I will give a list of pros and cons, as well as some tips:
Long rail system, perfect for if you want to rewire to a peq box battery holder, or just want to keep flashlights out of the way of your hand.
Long barrel, doesn't improve range too much since it is an airsoft gun, but definitly gives it a decent range.
Great stock internals, keeps the fps at a rate where it is not too high for cqb, but high enough to pack a punch.
The Nylon-Fiber construction is very well done, and keeps this rifle light to compensate for its length.
Very good rate of fire even with a 9.6v 1600mA battery.
Included scope is high quality.
Overall, looks amazing.
Just a note, but more to the side of being bad: The stock magazine does wobble a bit more than standard magazines, but it is not too bad, at least in my experience.
Battery spacer (the piece of plastic in the stock that prevents battery wobble) can prevent changing the stock to shortest setting, fix for that below.
Orange tip is harder to remove than most.
Stock is very tight to buffer tube, which is good when you want the stock on but makes it harder to take the stock off and put it back on, but not a major issue. I want to clarify that it is loose enough to easily change stock positions, only touble is removing stock.
Battery spacer: Take the spacer out, and wrap 5 layers of electrical tape around the battery.
Removing rail system and barrel completely, to be able to put on a new railsystem or barrel: People everywhere say it is impossible on this gun. That is false, this gun does have a delta ring it is just hidden well. You should be fine using standard barrels or rail systems on this gun once removed. Unscrew both hex screws on the rail system, and pull off, then unscrew both screws in the outer barrel and pull that off. Use a flashlight if you need to, and look into the circular gap. See the tan (Or black) piece with 4 notches around it? That, my friends, is the delta ring this gun supposedly doesn't have. Uncrew it like a normal d-ring, either with a d-ring tool or just 2 small screwdrivers. The rest is self-explanatory.
Overall, this gun is amazing for beginners and pro's alike, since it is fully upgradable, and is the middle ground between long range and cqb. If you are looking for a low-budget airsoft gun, definitly get a combat machine. Plus, you get any item you want under 37 bucks (If I remember right) for free! Also, a word to beginners: $190 seems like a lot, but don't make the mistake of buying an AEG for under $130. You will end up spending a lot more than that by buying cheap plastic guns that are not good for anything :D I probably spent $160 just buying crappy guns before i bought this. Also sorry for long review.
