3 Customer Reviews "So I picked this gun up for my brother a week ago, straight out of the box it seemed pretty nice. It has a good weight and looks pretty cool.
However, when we were taking the gun out to zero his red dot, we noticed a problem with the mid-caps we got. He slapped a mag in, and as he stood up to head outside the mag slid right out of the magwell and onto the ground.
Now this is not a problem for the Hi-cap mag that came with the gun. The problem seems to be with the little tab on top of the mag that houses the spring that keeps the bbs in the mag. The little tab on the mid-caps was longer than the one on the hi-cap.
(The mid-caps i bought were the Matrix 120rd Metal mid-caps)
As long as you take a close look at that tab on the mags you're going to buy you should be fine.
Also, you have to get really low on the weapon to see though a normal red dot or your iron sights. If you are wearing a full mask, it is impossible to use sights on this gun (iron or otherwise). You will either have to get a rail riser, or a sight with a cantilever mount.
-Bolt locks back for hop-up access
-Pain to use with full mask
-Less of a selection of Mags
If you have to wear a mask, I would give it a 3/5
Otherwise a 4/5 "I got this out of a mystery box and I have to say I'm impressed. Like the other review said, there is a noticeable seam along the gun, but it is only visible if you are within 5 feet of it. The top rail also wiggles a bit, but is not so bad as to where I'm upset. Also, mine has a small burr mark from molding on the underside of the gun, but that isn't visible and I'm pretty sure it is not on every model that gets out.
Other than that, this gun is amazing. Mine only has the CQB range, and I would not use it for field gaming, but a new right bore barrel will do wonders on this gun. Also, mine is shooting a bit hot at 370 fps, and with the new barrel performs better than any other gun in this price range, especially a Combat Machine, (which I have and have compared it to head to head). I am able to fit a 9.6 volt nunchuk battery in it, although it haut fits. This gun also has a functioning bolt catch and decocker, something I just stumbled upon and very pleased with. However, if you have a full face mask the iron sights are too low, but I don't use them because I don't like the rear sight at all, but that's just a personal preference. It is a simple fix if you have a red dot, or I took an M4 rear sight and with that on the iron sights are useable. Also want to mention it has full Tavor trade marks.
Best out of any other gun in price range
Very nicely textured metal body
Quick-change spring system
Functioning bolt catch and spring decompresser
Can fit a 9.6 nunchuk
You get so much more than what you pay for with the internals
Shoots hotter than 350 (not really a con just not what I was expecting)
For field, range leaves a lot to be desired
Wobbly top rail/piece
Bad rear sight
Small molding mark underneath
You get what you pay for with the body "I got this gun a few weeks ago, and I have to say, I'm impressed with it so far. It hasn't broken down, like several of my "full metal" M4 AEG's have right out of the box, which definitely puts this gun in my "win" column.
That said, the gun is a little creaky, there is a noticeable seam running down the middle, and where the optics rail is mounted wobbles, and cannot be secured, as far as I've seen (the rail itself doesn't wobble).
The gun fires pretty hard, much harder than I expected. It's range is still CQB, though, this isn't what I would use in an outdoor environment with engagement ranges of over 50-70 meters.
The only real problems I've had with this gun is that the flash hider that comes with the gun is ultra flimsy, it will break if you run into something too hard. Get a metal flash hider as soon as possible.
The battery space is also a lot smaller than you would think. I have an 8.4 mini nunchuck set up, and there is barely enough room for it an all the wires. If you have a PEQ box, I'd suggest using that (though you may need to drill a small hole in the handguard for your wiring, but it's not like this is a 500 dollar investment)
Other than that, this gun is absolutely solid. Lightweight, extremely maneuverable, can accept a good amount of accessories (get the metal rail pack if you plan on putting anything on this. http://www.zahal.org/products/tavor-picatinny-rail?path_pare- nt=253283
That's a link to a handguard rail for grips or anything else, should you want it. It's expensive, but I haven't found another tavor tailored handgaurd rail out there)
-Shoots hard and accurate
-Tight magwell (little or no mag wobble, accepts Beta project P-mags and many others)
-Full metal gearbox
-Quick change spring
-good amount of rail space (with the rail pack)
-Functioning charging handle (bolt release also relaxes the spring, very handy)
-Creaky (but still solid, I'm not worried about the gun coming apart)
-Not suitable for ranged engagements
-Stock plastic exterior parts are crap
-fire selector doesn't really lock into place when on semi Write a Review
