"Got this gun for Christmas but just started using it in games the past two weeks.
It's very light weight and ambidextrous so it can easily pop from one hand to another while staying in cover. Both upper and lower receiver are plastic, the upper receiver feels very sturdy and the lower receiver feels sturdy enough although I would not want to drop this. too many times.
Works well for a CQB environment and some outdoors (I've used it in both). Mine shoots around 350 FPS out of the box but I'm sure with some upgrades can shoot just as high or low as you need it to (as a side note, it has the same length barrel as a G36).
It is very easy to disassemble and reassemble, Hop-up is easily accessed from underneath the back thumb hole. To clean it you can just take the entire upper receiver off (remember to dial down the hop up all the way!) and use a cleaning rod without worrying about hitting your air nozzle with the rod. The gear box can be accessed by unscrewing 2 screws and then just sliding it out the back where the butt plate is (it uses a ver. 6 gearbox I don't know what size bushings, however, and no one else seems to know either).
The butt plate of the gun comes off, that's where the battery is housed. You can also adjust your motor height there (the big hex screw facing out the back on the bottom of that chamber. There are only two screws there, if they come out you can slide the entire gearbox out with no problem.
The red dot sight works as a red dot sight should, it sits there and glows red =)
It cannot be easily adjusted left, right, up, or down. All you can do is tighten or loosen screws to adjust it which just does not really do anything except make it loose. You just have to learn to adjust your cheek/head position so you are aligned with the sight.
The sight also does not drain batteries! I use rechargeable AA energizer batteries. I tried to drain them before a game and after a full night, day, and night again (36 hours) of leaving it on the low setting it was still running! I didn't want to kill the life of the light so I removed the batteries and put them in an ebook reading light (which I left on for another 12 hours) and by night time they were almost all the way drained.
Out of the box mine did come with a blown fuse and a bad battery (It uses an 8.4V small type by the way). I just bought a new fuse for $1 and Evike replaced the bad battery for free! (Thanks guys!)
It does have some issues firing: 1. Sometimes the semi does not work and you have to switch it to full auto, then back to semi again to fix it. 2. I have been having an issue where one BB flies out at full speed but the next one drops to the ground about 10 ft. in front of me if it even makes it out of the barrel. Sometimes 2 BB's will hit each other inside the barrel and one of them breaks/ comes out of the barrel in fragments. This doesn't always happen but when it does I take out the mag, empty the chamber and try again and it will usually work. Eventually I'm going to try putting in a tight bore barrel and changing out the bucking and see if that fixes the issue.
The high-cap that comes with the gun is horrendous! I've gotten about 2-3 shots off before it completely un-spools and then doesn't work. I've tried taking it apart and building a ramp on the inside (google it to see what I'm talking about) but nothing has seemed to work yet for it. So now I'm using mid-caps and they are wonderful! GO BUY MID-CAPS FOR THIS GUN!!!
The glasses it comes with are NOT FULL SEAL, so they cannot be used in most games but are great for your backyard when trying out the gun.
The flash hider is glued on very tightly so I am unable to confirm is there is any threading underneath it for a silencer attachment, but that part of the upper receiver is metal so there is a high probability of it (other websites say it has a 14mm negative threading but I have not personally confirmed this).
Just as a forewarning, the p90 is a very unique weapon. So it is hard to find things like mag holders that are cheap and slings that are not just straight velcro (which I do not trust holding this gun). However, everyone will be asking you about it since not a lot of people own one and from all of it's fame from the Call of Duty franchise. So enjoy it and show it off!
Overall I would recommend this as a good started weapon or one for CQB. It's a good price and works fairly well with limited issues. Make sure you care for your weapon so it lasts longer and make sure to read the manual. The better you know your weapon, the longer it will last! "I got the gun a week ago, and used it twice since. Nice and light, ideal for CQB. The area which I saw this gun needed most attention was the trigger response. The trigger response is absolutely atrocious. After pulling back the trigger on semi auto a few times it will stop firing, and you'll need to switch to full auto and back to make it work again, a problem that can be fatal in CQB (which this gun is built for). I would recommended getting a high torque motor for this gun and to use nothing less than 9.6v battery. The 8.4v battery that is included doesn't fit inside the battery compartment (you shouldn't be using an 8.4v battery when using this anyways). The rate of fire is ~11-13 with the 8.4v battery but exceedingly higher when a 9.6v battery is used (~17-18rps). Also I was quite disappointed when there was only one rail space on this thing, but I mean you have built in sights and a rail space to put any other attachment so I guess that's fine. Also be sure you get midcap mags for this thing, I can't tell you how annoying high caps are for this thing. I made the mistake of buying extra highcaps. Turns out that you have to take out the mag to wind the bbs.
To sum it up:
-light weight for cqb
-high ROF with a 9.6v battery
-built in RDS
-everything you'd expect in a sportline
-good beginner/intermediate gun
-Poor trigger response (needs a high torque motor)
-1 rail space
-battery it comes with doesn't fit when putting the buttcap on
-High cap mags need to be removed from the gun to wind them "this gun is good powerful and accurate.
very high rate of fire
the 300 rd magazine is crap(get matrix midcap mags)
the red dot sight is crap(get a r.i.s.)
the only metal thing on it is the charging handle(I got a metal upper reciever)
overall it's a good gun but they'erbetter ones out thier "Pros:
Great rate of fire: Burned through a high cap and three mid caps in about three minutes
Good FPS: Around 350
The sight is very accurate: I've hit targets from abot 200 Ft. dead on
Long battery life
Skips on full-auto every once and awhile with the high cap mag
Jams occasionally on semi
I'm having trouble removing the orange flash-hider (It includes a black one, too)
It's a good gun and worth the money.
Since it's the value package you get a pair of eye protection glasses and some targets (normal, deer, and ninja targets), whick is a good bonus. "this gun is good but goo get the e-90 its better it is lower price to Displaying
