"Pros:

Accurate- Capable of consistently hitting a 12 fl. oz. can at 60 feet.
Solid Outer Build Quality- The outer body is composed of either steel or very high strength aluminum. Between that and the hard wood stock, this rifle is pretty sturdy as far the externals go.

Cons:

Fill Valve Leaks- After multiple cleanings and thoroughly lubing it, the fill valve will still not consistently hold a full chamber of gas.
Weak Trigger Sear- The sear actually broke the first time I tried to manually release the hammer. Even after Evike repaired it, the sear has continued to cause jamming problems.
BBs Rolling Out The Barrel- Every time a bb is chambered, it will roll out of the barrel if the weapon is pointed down.

Conclusion: Definitely not worth the $200, especially since there's really no way of getting spare parts to fix the previously mentioned problems.

"I've wanted a lever action rifle ever since getting into airsoft. The only that was thing holding me back was the availability and the cost. So when I saw this on evike I got a little excited and bought one. Given the chance I would make the purchase again, but there are a few things I feel people should know.

First off this is not the most well built gun out there. Immediately upon receiving the gun I put green gas in it and the fill valve literally exploded. After replacing the valve and getting going again I noticed that the gun was very finicky about taking a fill. Seems like the release valve is sticking or was damaged during the fill valves explosion.

Though after finally getting it to fill I took it to a chrono and it did indeed shoot 460 fps and as the chamber emptied it drifted down to 300 fps. After getting it to fill again I took it to the range. This thing shoots all over the place after about 100 feet. Its like the hopup unit is not locked in and will get left or right spin as it vibrates. When it does stay centered it does get some considerable range though.

Don't let all these things discourage you though. If you are willing to tinker with the gun to get it working right I believe this gun will do well. If you don't want to tinker or don't know how I highly suggest you avoid this one.

"I just received the rifle today and it is truly magnificent! The overall quality of the build is flawless. The action is smooth and crisp. It holds a ton of gas. The fps is scary. My chrono readings ranged from 557fps(1st shot) to 490fps(25th shot) using .20gram bbs and green gas. The rifle is extremely accurate and the sights are top grade. The only negative about the gun is the light finish on the all wood stock. The wood itself is beautiful considering its from China. I purchased a Birchwood-Casey refinishing kit and I'm in the process of giving it a more authentic look. Other than that, the rifle is one of the most realistic and well built airsoft guns on the market. So if you want to own a piece of American history, look no further!
