"Extremely well built weapon both internally and externally. This gun is great!
All my teammates that used it loved it. I use the Matrix 0.25g bb with it.
I also bought the 500 FPS spring for this rifle and it is easy to install and now the accuracy and range is insane. (I use Matrix 0.32 bio with this spring)
PROS: gun looks real and feels good, shoots hard right out of the box can hit someone in the head form about a 100 ft easy (when its not windy).
All and all buy it and dont think twice about it.... "I want to start off by saying This rifle is really high-quality It doesn't feel like it's going to break anytime soon but I have one little problem with it where the hop up is located I cannot find it, but despite of not being able to find the hop up I can hit a Human sized target at 250+ feet With 32g elite force BBs The rifle is completely stock if you're wondering about the range but maybe after I put about 300 shots through it it might drop in range, hope this review helps you out "Just to start off I bought this gun because I knew the ASG/VFC version had issues with the feeding mechanism and the magazine design was dumb. I got this gun and was impressed from the start.
In the box you will get the gun, a magazine, cleaning rod, and a bag of BBs(actually not that bad)
The gun is very solid and has a realistic weight. Out of the box it's shooting around 420 FPS(measured with .20g BBs and a Xcortech chrono) and very good range for a stock rifle. One issue I had was getting the magazines to fit. The mags wouldn't lock in so I had to put O-Rings around the screws that hold the magwell to shim it to fit.
-VSR 10 90° piston
-VSR 10 Spring guide
-VSR 10 spring
-AEG barrels(455mm barrel fits perfectly)
To my knowledge the cylinder, hop up and nub are unique to the system. I don't know if the trigger box and components are VSR 10 compatible because they are very strong to start with. No need to replace them unless you run a stupid high stress build.
Mags are easily found on Evike and are affordable
Solid stock FPS
Great stock range
Mostly VSR compatible
Remmington R700 trades
Hop up is a PDI style which means it has the dual adjustment
Mag fitment(might have been a lemon)
Not 100% VSR compatible
Overall if you want a excellent M40A3 look no further. This is the best one on the market at the time of the review.
I have successfully installed an Action Army VSR-10 piston, an Action Army VSR-10 spring guide, and an Action Army 6.01x455mm inner barrel. Despite what the other reviewer said this is NOT GAS POWERED. IT IS SPRING POWERED. Read More Reviews Write a Review
