"What a wonderful rifle! This rifle has good reliability, accuracy, and power right out of the box. It's iron sights are easy to ajust but I added a red dot sight because iron sights block out the world.
For the new airsofter that needs a good weapon, does not need to upgrade, or just does not want to mess with it and expect it to work everytime, this is the gun for you.
Just a note, after putting on a rail mount and a red dot, this rifle weighs in at a hefty 10 pounds which is a lot of weight after 2 or 3 hours of skirmish time.
There are two problems with this gun both which can be easily fixed. One: the bolt catch. On the catch there is a quarter inch long pin that holds the catch onto the gun. This peice is not glued in, it just floats there so if you are going to play around with it, super glue one side of the hole so the pin does not fall out. just a drop will do.
Secondly, the manual states that when firing on semi auto, the gun will lock up and not fire so you must switch to full auto, fire a couple rounds, then switch back to semi in order to keep firing. Webmaster, do you know why the CYMA model does this?
Wood is believable
Accuracy is phenominal
Hop up is fantastic
Bolt catch pin needs to be glued in
Semi auto firing lock up "this gun has lasted about 2 or 3 years so far and the only thing i have had to replace is the stock battery and mag "Excellent AEG. High Power, Sturdy feel.
Realistic Look + Feel
Can Hold Large Battery
Excellent ROF with 9.6v
Bad Sling "i am going to buy this gun and convert it to an M1 Garand at www.freewebs.com/azrmachine they have a m1 garand conversion set for this gun not for Tokyo Marui "Great gun very accurate at long ranges and has a high fps but it does not preform well in CQC only buy it if you play in woods or big fields
Webmaster: Generally, m14 (long long guns) are not for indoor play. "i've owned this gun for months, and i love it. the build quality is superb: the full metal barrel, gas tube, trigger assembly, chamber, butt plate, magazine and sights amaze me very time i pick it up. the gun is all class - full adjustable sights for elevation and windage. slapping the bolt sounds like pure joy. the imitation wood is very convincing, and the abs heat shield on top is a nice matte black finish. the safety is ingenious (props to the real-steel designers). and i just love looking down those garand-style sights. one guy that i met who owns the real steel version said it was convincing as hell.
as far as performance, its decent for sure, but i bought it mostly to handle it. i put on an aftermarket mount and scope and a bipod, and this thing is a beast now, at nearly 10 pounds. the only annoyances i have is that the hop-up wont budge, but thats alright cause it came very well tuned. if anybody whines about the tight fit with the battery, they're goons - just pull out the connector and not the whole bloody thing. easy as pie.
i love it. such a good deal. "Just go with a small type 9.6v. There shouldn't be much of a sizing issue and if you don't abuse it the battery should last quite a while. "Guys i have a question, i want to replace the battery for a better one, but i dont want to replace the internals yet, which one do you recommend me? Small? Large? Nunchaku? 8.4? 9.6? "If u are looking for a good outside sniper or squad support weapon this is a great choice. I do reccomend this for begginers who are looking for a good 1st aeg. 4 expierianced players it isn't as powerful as im sure u all want and the rate of fire is about 8 rounds a second. It chronos at around 350 fps with .20. and is pretty accurate up too 60 er 70 ft. my front sight broke, which seems to be a problem with this model. The battery is a piece of shit and so is the sling. the sling broke while i was carrying it. "I have installed a prometheus 6.03mm tightbore barrel and Guarder soft bucking, it now shoots significantly further than my CA M16. I ahve yet to replace the motor (which I NEED to do), but the internals have lasted for quite a while with the mini 9.6v I use with it but that could be attributed to the fact I only use single shot or short bursts. Eventually when the internals do fail I will replace it with a Guarder FTK and make it my DMR. The front sight on mine also broke, the AGM and UTG ones ARE NOT compatible so I will get a Marui one. I am overall impressed with this gun, it is certainly worth the $130 price tag unlike other clone M14's that should be marked down to about $80. "I won this in a raffle at an evike.com sponsored event. I have to say this is a very decent gun for its price. I used to think CYMA only made crap, and saw that in some earlier models.
What I like about this gun is compatibility, it is 100% compatible to all TM M14 aftermarket parts. Stock it shoots decent, maybe 1 ft grouping at 120ft, good for light suppressing fire. The "tightbore" it comes with is at best a 6.07 because it only shoots a little bit better than the UTG clone M14's. The realistic bolt release is a fun feature too, and so is the satisfying clank of the bolt. Body quality is as good as it gets for a plastic gun, a weaker person might call it heavy, but then again I am rather strong. The motor is horrible
The battery it comes with is crap, lasts for maybe a full mag, and of course wall chargers always suck. I found it odd that this gun has a mini connector. the UTG and AGM mags are somewhat compatible, they don't stay in very tightly but will feed just fine (be careful when you move though).
I personally haven't tried to put in a tightbore which I know isn't possible for other clone M14's, but I'll try it later on.
Overall good gun for a beginner, buy Tokyo Marui mags though. Displaying
