"So far this gun hasn't disappointed save for the bipod. The screw that allows it to rotate broke while I was using the bipod as a foregrip. This happened 3 weeks after I assembled it from the box. I understand if it wasn't intended to handle that much weight bearing down on it for a prolonged period of time, but at the same time, I believe it should be to withstand it indefinitely. Goes without saying that for a weapon such as this, a bipod makes it infinitely more effective at range. It also makes stowing this weapon safer and keeps stress off the magazine while in a resting position. Please take this back to the drawing board, Evike, and fix this issue for good. Make that screw indestructible, its the weak link. "This gun is pretty sweet. It is heavy, and looks just like the real thing. I wouldn't want to drop it, because due to its weight I think some parts could break off. I wish it was all steel, but whatever. I am not using it as an airsoft gun, but a prop gun for movies, and it's perfect. Just be aware that the flash hider is all plastic, not like pictured. "When I picked up this beast out of the box when it arrived, it was amazing. The feel of it was just right. shouldering it made me feel liek a beast, the smiel that arose on my face was one that i have never had. This gun outweighs any other support gun On the market, Possible excluding the PKM.. so theres some heft to it/ If your used to M4's. AK's. and G36's then this MG will be a struggle to play 4+ hours with. however if your used to lugging the M249, M240, Stoner, M60, ECT around this wil be a bit heavier. My thoughts on this gun passed my expectations.. When i recieved the gun there was two problems, the plate that held the bolt in was broken and was falling off, and the Hope up was missing a screw and did not function. So i didn't get the full experience of it during my first battle. (EVIKE has since repaired it and is sending it back) The guns range even though the hopup didnt function was still reaching good ranges of playing. easily 100 feet. The ROF with a 7.4 Lipo was okay-ish I perferd a 9.6 nunchuck, 11.1 LIPO would be desired. The magazine's build quality is phenomenal. I accedetly dropped it off a two story building, and it was chucked back up to me to function liek a beast. It easily fed up to 20RPS with an 11.1. My only cons about it is that you have to really pull the trigger in order to engage the Auto wind, and the connector to the gun and the mag seems flimsy. The real Steal quick barrel change is nto included with this liek it is in the M249, witch i prefer as it wont get F***** every time i remove the barrel to fiddle with that cool function. So its a good thing.. The Hopup is bolted to the guns frame so it wont budge! The quality of the internals seem to be solid as I put over 7k rounds through ti in a day with a high rps 0f 15-17 without it skipping a beat or misfiring. The safety on the gun is located in a position where if you hold the grip tightly it will disengage the safety. Now when i was on the battle field playgirl i encounter a few problems.
The problems insisted of not seeing anyone, they were to scared to pop there heads up or show themselves ( true story! They hated me... I kept the entire left side of my map hiding in fear!!!) They later approached me after the game telling me they now hate me. and that they wont play against me anymore.. Witch put a smile on my entire teams face. The other problem was that I had to relod once, and it took my five minutes of watching my teammates getting killed due to me not putting the Hostiles heads down.
While i was off the field Everyone wanted to hold it, and shoot it.. The "such wow... Much awesome" factor was high. I HIGHLY suggest you buy this...
"such wow" Factor
Mag's durability and capacity(witch is more than what evike says... Like 500-1000 more)
The Fear Factor is real... I put actual Soldiers heads down.
The Mags stability when locked into the gun is phenomenal.
The gun is just Sexy.
When arrived was broken.
The Mags autowind connector to gun
The Auto wind need the trigger to be pulled all the way back
The amount of times I go to buy BB's goes up 100%
Cant see anyone due to them being scared of the gun and keeping thier head down! Read More Reviews Write a Review
