3 Customer Reviews "Just got this gun about 3 weeks ago, and the performance is great so far!
I'm just going to start with a few cons I encountered with my gun, not sure if it's a lemon or if it's common on all the models.
First of all, the hop up unit tends to change on its own, and you constantly find yourself having to re-adjust it every time you use it after about a day or so.
Secondly, the "Free float HDP Picatinny railed hand guard" pin thingy would not come out even though I tried pushing it out with all my might. I had to use a hammer along with a flat-head screwdriver to push the thing it, it refused to come it. Again, not sure if mines is just a lemon or if it's common.
Third, I had some issues getting some M4 magazines inside of this gun, they would get in, but you were required to give them a little wobble before they would click in.
Lastly, where the hand guard start on the rail system, there is a small nylon block there, and it prevents you from putting any sights or optics in the middle of the railing system on top of your gun, I was planning to use a FTS 3x zoom magnifier with my Holographic sight, but I don't have enough room on the rail that sits on top of the upper receiver of the gun. I guess you could sand it out or just cut it off, but I don't trust myself with anything like that, I know you don't need a 3x zoom for a CQB gun, but it was just kind of inconvenient for me that i was unable to use the rail space in the middle of the gun due to that plastic getting in the way.
Overall the gun is awesome, and shoots like a monster with a 9.6v 1600 mah nunchuck style battery, and the range is absolutely perfect for any and all CQB situations. I mean this thing just sounds like a beast when you pull that trigger.
Amazing looks and color to the gun
Very light weight
Shoots crazy fast
Very good trigger reaction
The gun has an amazing feel to it (The plastic on this thing is NOT cheap.)
Plenty of battery space (You could seriously fit a snickers bars in there if you wanted to)
All metal internal and all metal where it really counts, so don't let that plastic discourage you from getting this gun.
The hop up unit constantly needs re-adjusting every time you use it (You would have to re adjust it after a day or so of not using the gun, the hop up is fine when you're actually using the gun)
Some magazines may require an extra push in order to get them into the gun.
When you have the battery in, you can't put the stock all the way up (But who even has the stock that high up in the first place?)
Doesn't come with a battery (This may be an issue for some people, but wasn't really one for me. I'd rather have no battery than a crappy battery that's not even worth your time anyways.)
Might just be me, but I wish the flip up sights were metal instead of plastic.
Hand Guard pin remover was a PAIN to get out for me. (Again, might just be an issue with my gun alone.)
Other than those cons, this gun is ABSOLUTELY awesome!
The gun performs very well, and looks SO BEAUTIFUL.
If you have $150 this gun is definitely worth your money, you might encounter some very minor issues, but they don't really hurt the gun at all. "Before I get into the gun, I need to say that I purchased this gun from my local retailer, not Evike.com. This shouldn't matter to any buyer who is interested in buying one of these.
Before, I had my eyes set on a G&G CM16. But when I conversed with the dealer, he talked about (and supported) how the Valken Battle Machine lineup is better than the G&G Combat Machine lineup. He said it kept the fps a lot longer than G&G, which loses about 40-60 fps in the first year. Valken's warranty is also an absolute BEAST. A 1-year warranty is hands-down a great thing for this series.
Now, my actual experience with the gun - AMAZING. This thing shoots 14-16 rps, and the accuracy is so great, you could hit a 1-foot target from about 100 ft away! The precision of the bullets is great, too. The spread is small. I only had a couple of problems with the gun, but that could just be my impatience to try out this monster of a gun! The weight is awesome, as well. It's not like 12 pounds and make your arms wish they were dead, but it's not made of that stupid ABS plastic. For the majority of the gun (except the small stuff in the gearbox, which is full metal by the way), whatever's not nylon fiber (an EXTREMELY stong material) is made out of metal. The only cons I had with this gun is that the buttplate (which houses the battery) is a little tough to get open if you aren't used to it. Also, the hop-up seems to do nothing until you put it up to max hop. (Don't get mad because it's not doing anything, put it on maximum hop and it'll soar up.) From there, adjust it down a little until you find the right hop. All in all, this is a MUST BUY for ANYONE (Starter OR pro) looking for a great gun that will meet CQB standards.

Extremely Strong Body.
Good FPS for CQB (Around 350 FPS)
Accuracy & Precision = Awesome.
Great Battery & SMART Charger.
Good RIS Rails for adding Accessories.
Really Cheap for the Price.
Cons: (Just me nitpicking)
Buttplate can be hard to get off at first.
Hop-up can be tricky for people starting out with this system of hop-up. "This is a nice solid starter gun. I was looking for a budget friendly AEG that took M4 mags because my previous gun broke. Then I found this wonderful piece of electric glory. Once I got it I used it at my local field and played a few rounds. It preformed beutifully.
Nice thick polymer body
TONS of customization
stock perfect for nunchuck battery
Flash hider strips easy
Stock a bit wobbly
Mag well a bit tight
Overall a very nice starter gun for the money and perfect for mid to close-range combat. I would rate a 4.5 out of 5. Write a Review
