"It's a pretty good gun, I feel right in the middle of great and terrible.
Its got 345 FPS, which for a C.Q.B environment (What a bullpup's pretty much made for; tight corners etc.) is just about perfect. Its a semi cheap gun, but I can vouch for it. Me and my friends have had crosmans for 4 years that just broke like...a year ago. All of the crosmans we had were 120 dollar guns and they lasted us 4-5 years. This gun for 175, it'll last you; or it should, last you longer then that. Its not the best quality, nor is it pushing 300 dollar quality, like I feel alot of experienced airsofters are used to. They compare this to a 300 dollar gun and yeah; it cant compare. Its budget airsoft.
As fair as the one metal piece it comes with, the M4 magazine is weird. It fits the Tavor perfectly and fit in my Stag Arms M4, scratching a lil paint off the magazine, however it refuses to fit in my Echo1 416.
I would recommend 2 things when buying this gun. Get the $15 alluminum rail kit, it replaces the ABS rail and gives you a side rail, balances out the gun a lil more. Also keep in mind due to how low the irons & rail are, you will need a raised optic if you intend on wearing lower face protection.
And Yes, it is ABS, but like I said, Me and my friends have had crosmans last us 4-5 years. Crosman plastic is definitely a lower standard then this ABS, you'll be fine.
ON ANOTHER NOTE!! The video for this says it has an ABS gearbox and said there would be a "Metal gearbox version". The one I ordered came WITH a metal gearbox. I dont really know whats up with that, but I figured it was worth mentioning.
I havent fielded mine yet so I will update this when I do. "The gun is pretty good. Unlike the description says, it comes with an 8.4 1100 mah battery and a cheap charger, which I would recommend replacing. It has a metal outer barrel, and everything that is metal on the real tar is metal, except for the top rail. FPS is about 330 with .2 g bbs for me. The bolt catch is metal, and also shows the hop up while releasing spring tension. When you have the front and rear sight flipped up, it's hard to use if you have a hat or mask, so I only use the front sight. The rof is decent or slightly good, like 12 RPS with a 9.6 and 18 with my lipo.
Cqb legal fps
Good external build
Actually comes with a battery and charger
Bolt catch sounds good and releases spring tension
When battery is installed, it isn't back heavy like other bullpups
Looks way cooler than augs (might be a con for LOSERS)
Rof is better than most bullpups
Accurate at a distance (up to 120 feet)
Quick change spring gearbox and easy gearbox access
Gearbox has metal bearings
Small battery compartment (won't fit my 1000 mah lipo without lots of adjustment)
Rear sight a bit hard to look through
Weird to wind a hi cap mag
Mags that didn't come with gun have a bit of wobble and the mag that it does come with fits very tight
Can't mount any slings unless you buy sling mounts
Overall, I give it a 4.5 out of 5, but that isn't an option. Compared to other bullpups, it's small and compact. (Unlike the 12 pound aug) The internals are also better than most bullpups at the price for having a quick change spring and 8mm metal bushings. If you want something other than a m4 or ak, or just want a bullpup, I reccomend it compared to other bullpups. "Why is everyone saying it has a high rate of fire. This is probably the gun with the slowest rate of fire right out of the box for it's price. If you are looking for a good aeg do not get this one try one of the Raiders from G&G Raider series thoughs are good. Read More Reviews Write a Review
