"Get this gun!!! It's great, however, it is soooooooo picky with mags it isn't even funny, I got elite force mags, didn't work, hi cap mags, didn't wor so just get the thirty round ones sold here at evike
"I recently ordered and received this gun and fielded it at training. I was able to put approximately 1,500-2,000 bbs through it and I am going to give my honest opinion about this gun.
First impression of this gun was it is heavy, but not in a bad way. I was very surprised at the weight of this gun considering it is polymer. It felt more like a metal gun, so I was pleasantly surprised. Externally, this gun is beautiful. They definitely took their time making sure that the externals match up nicely and made sure the trademarks were very detailed.
The gun has no wobbles and is very solid. Extremely well constructed and I have no doubt it will be durable. One thing I did notice with the lower rail was that it wouldn't fit my stubby forend grip. The rail itself seemed to be slightly too wide. I attached an angled forend grip and it worked fine, so this isn't much of a problem. I just originally did not intend on using an angled forend grip with this gun. It does have a very nice, steel single-point sling mount which worked flawlessly and is appears to be very strong.
The flip up sights are polymer and very similar to Magpul-styled sights. They do have a very nice small Lonex horse logo on them. They performed great when I was using them instead of my optics.
Performance wise: I ran this gun with a standard 9.6/1600 and it performed well. Once I adjusted the hop up and sighted in this gun, it shot accurately and I was impressed. The trigger response is decent and the rate of fire is pretty standard while running a 9.6/1600. I have not fielded yet with a lipo, but that will be my next tests. This gun is constructed with full Lonex internals, which makes me have no doubt that it going to perform.
I did run into a couple problems with the gun. First was with the grip. The grip flares out where it meets the gun. It is comfortable to shoot, but when you are transitioning shoulders or shooting weak-side, the flares make it difficult to use the fire selector. If BO would add an ambidextrous fire selector, this would fix this problem completely, but as it stands, it is a problem. On that same topic, the fire selector needs to have a little bit more solid of a "click" and lock into position. When I would transition, if my gloved hand brushed up against the fire selector, it would move out of position and I wouldn't be able to fire (or it would go auto/safe).
The only other issue I ran into was running on semi-auto. Every once in a while, the gears would lock up in semi-auto. Now, this isn't uncommon. Usually a quick burst on auto will unlock it and it'll be fine. The problem was that even running it auto briefly wouldn't unlock the semi-auto. After running auto for a lengthy amount of time, it would eventually unlock. I was a little surprised/disappointed in that.
All in all, I have no doubt that BO Dynamics has made a superb gun that will field great. I really like this gun and am sold on the quality of BO Dynamics. I highly recommend it, but be aware of the few issues I did have. Further testing and experiments with it will reveal any issues or corrections with this.
I give this gun a 4.5 out of 5 (only because of the fire selector and grip).
