This gun is accurate down to the weld marks, with the only thing missing being the "trademarks". It has a parkerized finish, instead of the matte black of the ICS M3. The retractable stock can come off, which is nice for slight reduction in weight. The dust cover also acts as the safety, however it has to be completely closed in order for it to work properly, even if it's left slightly open, the safety will not activate. It's also heavy, weighing in at about 7 pounds with the magazine inserted. The orange tip can be removed with a small screwdriver and some elbow grease. The magazine holds about 480-500 rounds, the FPS on my particular M3A1 was on average 340 FPS, which is nice for both CQB or (if you were to try it, like I did) Field Use. The trigger pull is nice and smooth, no tension. There's a small amount of wiggle in the stock, but only when it's retracted inwards, When it's retracted outward I don't notice any wiggling or looseness of the stock.
TL:DR - Overall this is a nice replica, and I would certainly recommend it.
