"I purchased this gun a couple years ago and thought I'd share my experience. When I first received the gun, I had no idea how far the hopup adjustment screw needs to be turned in before contacting the bucking. This led to bb's rolling out the barrel. When I did turn the screw in far enough, the gun shoots accurately up to 100 ft with .25's. HOWEVER, the gun I received had an inner barrel that wasn't centered within the outer barrel. This led to bb's hitting the orange tip and ricocheting. I solved this by cutting off the end of the barrel.
With regard to build quality, the links between pump handle and the piston are metal as well as the "feet" of the piston and cylinder that contact these links. However, the set screws that connect these links to the polymer pump handle strip over time and need to be epoxied (minor issue). The hopup unit, cylinder, and piston are all plastic while the trigger sears are metal. The gun has zero wobble in its furniture.
The magazine is fully metal and was a rather snug fit. It takes some force to insert/remove with precise alignment.
Overall, I recommend this gun to anyone on a budget who doesn't mind a few basic modifications. This gun is very accurate for the price with decent outdoor play range. Just remember the hopup screw needs to be really in there to function.
"I just received this gun about a week and a half ago and shot about 500 rounds with it. I've now used it in battle once. It's heavy when you first pick it up but you soon get used to it. Not for those who are much of a field runner or close quarters battle fans since it is a bit heavier than most shot guns and the BB's tend to roll out (once pumped) if the barrel is aimed downward. That to me was pretty annoying. I ended up running to each position before pumping the gun to avoid losing my chambered round on the floor.
Magazines jam BB's easily
Loses chambered BB if moved too quickly
Magazine gets stuck inside gun if not loaded perfectly
Overall - Good gun. Shot accurately in moderate wind from about 35 yards. (which is great for a shotgun). I haven't clocked the FPS yet but will do so next time I go to the Arena. I estimate the speed at about 370 (with .20g) but I'm no wiz. This gun is worth the money.
