"First off, this fun is very well packaged. Easily the best packaged gun that I have seen or received myself. So no worries about the gun being damaged in the shipping department.
The gun comes with a seventy round p-mag that seems alright. Haven't used it yet, but it seems to be sturdy. The gun also comes packaged with a good manual. The english is good, and it has good pictures with instructions on how the gun works. I did not receive an additional flash hider, battery, or battery charger (I mention the flash hider because the box looks like it has a slot for one, and some people in other reviews have said they did get one).
Now, as for the gun itself. The upper receiver is metal, and the lower is polymer/fiber. That being said, it feels fantastic in the hand. Easily the best feeling airsoft rifle that I have shouldered (I have shouldered everything from an M-4 to an AK). It just feels really good when you're holding it. The fiber/polymer parts (stock, lower receiver, hand guard) are very sturdy. I know some people have ragged on the hand guard for it being flexible, but mine is solid. The gun also has essentially no wobble. The only play I have is the tiniest bit of movement in the hand guard because it is the part you remove for the battery. Plenty of space for the battery as well, just takes some getting used to so that you know where to position the pieces when you slide them back together. Now, how does it shoot? After some minor hop-up adjustment, it was shooting flat at 100 ft pretty easily. I'd expect it to reach out a little further (100 ft is about the limit for my house tests. I haven't fielded the gun yet). Its rate of fire is pretty good too, around 17-19 rps with a 9.6 butterfly. Aside from the p-mag it comes with, it took a kwa mid-cap, a lonex flash mag, and a g&g high cap. The mags also don't just slide into place, you have to put them into place, which is nice because nothing is loose.
-good weight (about 6 lbs. Not too heavy or light)
-feels great, solid construction, little wobble (really like the fixed stock).
-good rate of fire and fps (no chrono, but a can test put it 350-400)
-quick change spring system and quick barrel change system makes it easy to change from field to cqb
-takes a variety of mags
-being compatible with other magpul pts parts, it is very easy to customize parts
-honestly, couldn't really find anything worth noting. I guess its lack of a definite sling point is one. It essentially requires you to buy a qd sling attachment. There is a small metal point at the front of the stock that you might be able to fit something in, but it is really low profile to the gun.
***as a side note, if you choose to buy the RIS kit for the front of the masada, be aware of the fact that you will probably need a PEQ box for the battery. I looked into it, and only a 7.4 lipo will fit for sure. An 8.4 requires some modding inside the battery area, and there is no chance for a 9.6 inside the RIS. "I have the A&K Masada and now the Magpul Masada SV. Comparing between the two, I would say both have their pro's and con's. Since this review about the Magpul Masada SV, I will focus on this. The SV is well packaged The manual is not "chingrish" and very well written. the external quality is superb despite not having the dupont quality plastic. The cocking handle, release, and mag release is far superior than the A&K Masada, The Trigger lives up to its hype and it's insane. The disassembly/reassembly is ridiculously easy. Even a noob like me can take this apart and put it back together. The SV has the reinforced gearbox but definately not as nice looking as the higher priced Masada. I believe the higher end Masada has a plastic hopup vs the SV has metal hopup. The one thing I didnt like (nit picking) and others has stated this too, but the hand guard does have about 1mm play. With a battery in it, the play is reduced, but you can still feel it wiggle just oh so slightly. The other is the hand guard is slightly flimsly. So far everything I've read about the SV is right on the money and I'm quickly falling in love with it more so than my A&K Masada. "Got this gun about 7 months ago and have had very few problems with it. just want to point out what the stats say are not all true. They were a little unclear so here are they should say.

New Generation Magpul PTS Masada SV Full Size Airsoft AEG Rifle - Black
The PTS Masada Streamline Version (SV) is an airsoft AEG (Automatic Electric Gun) which is based on MagpulŪ Masada GEN 3 design, completely reproduced in all details.
Various changes were made to the airsoft version of the Masada whilst maintaining some core features including a mock gas-piston operating system, tool-less quick-change barrel system, optimal magazine compatibility, stock type, and fire-control setup.
The front sight and rear PTS MBUS iron sight has been omitted and the PTS PMAG 120 round Mid-cap has been replaced with a 75 round ABS plastic made PMAG. These changes allow PTS to bring to market a high quality but more competitively priced streamlined version of the Airsoft Masada.
