"Let start by saying I am a big fan of Vietnam era weapons so when I laid eyes on this I squealed with delight in the splendor of how close in detail this is to an actual XM177. The recoil is solid(not real steel .223/ 5.56 solid but still a joy). I have owned this gun over a years time and it still shoots like a dream (I target practice in the backyard often, no wargames yet). The construction is very solid minus my model having a very slight bit of wobble between receivers(don't know if they all have it) but it feels stable and has lasted through a couple drops on a stone floor and a came back swinging. If you are a Vietnam era fan or just want a solid realism out of your airsoft gun I highly recommend this. 5 out of 5 all the way!

Pros:
Solid metal construction
20 rnd mag for realism
Blowback and felt recoil
Accurate at med-close ranges

Cons:
20 rnd mag(lowcap)
30 rnd mags do not feed in this properly(at least not in mine)

"This is definitely a good purchase. As I have shot the real M16 (not an AR15) I can tell you the recoil is almost identical. Out of the box the gun is lighter then I expected, as i forgot how small they are, but it is true to the real XM177 E2. I received it today and have already put almost 500 rounds through it without any issues using Matrix .30's what so ever. It is amazingly accurate (as it has an M4 length inner barrel) and anyone could easily use this in the field without getting fatigued. Even though it was a little bit colder (about 50-60) it functioned flawlessly even on full auto. I highly recommend extra magazines because this GBBR has an amazing rate of fire. Definitely five stars in my book.
