+Looks really cool
+Feels nice
+Moderate accuracy
+Seems sturdy
+Not completely sure what to think of the hop-up, but it seems to do its job.

-Heavy, especially with a scope and scope mount.

My gun was fine out of the box, but it began not shooting. So I unplugged the battery, switched it to single fire, squeezed the trigger, set it to auto, squeezed the trigger. Plugged the battery in and it shot like normal.

About 1-2 weeks later it stopped working all together, didn't even feel like the battery's power was going through. Fed up with it not shooting, I took it apart. After completely cleaning and lubing the gearbox, I found out that the gearbox wasn't the problem. It was the red wire connected from the motor to the trigger plate. Either the wire its self was bent enough to prevent a full connection with the battery to the motor to the trigger activating plate. Or the 2 pieces of copper in the trigger plate weren't touching completely, either way I have seemed to have fix the gun by just letting the wire not be constricted to the frame of the motor. So far it seems to shoot flawlessly.

"Keep in mind that the grub screw holing the barrel cover on is ridiculously hard to remove. Other than that, make sure that your midcaps' feeding lip isn't too long, or it'll screw with its ability to feed. Previous issues aside, its a cool gun.

"This rifle is superbly accurate provided you have .20 bbs and not .12. It's A great gun for a great price.

It's extremely accurate with .20 bbs, shoots very straight
High accuracy
good range, easily out competes most AEGs
respectable rate of fire
fake wood looks realistic
a lot of metal parts
feels durable
a good weight to it
very good looking gun

.12 are inaccurate and curve.
Ni-Cd Battery, I guess it brings down the price. Definitely suggest getting another battery.
The clip that comes with it misfeeds a lot. I did the Holy Cow special and got two high cap mags that are much better than what came with it.
Fake wood feels fake
Some plastic parts, only cosmetic pieces though.

Overall, great Designated Marksman Rifle for a pretty good price. It's basically a Sniper rifle that you can use Full auto for when your in a tight spot.

"I got this gun for christmas in 2011, and have been playing around and testing it for about 2 weeks.

Looks awesome
Solid build
A lot of metal parts
The top and bottom receiver can be separated with little effort
Great sights (optics are nice but not necessary)
Comes with hi-cap mag (feeds great)
Decent sized battery compartment
Very heavy (could be a con for smaller people)
With a 9.6v battery ROF is pretty good, and FPS is around 360 (.20s)
Extremely accurate with .25s (a bit less with .2s but still accurate)
Cheap when compared to other guns that preform the same

You will need a good battery and charger to get the most out of this gun.

So overall i give it a 5/5.
Would recommend to anyone

"This is a great gun! It is great for outdoors (where I play) because it is very long. It shoots very straight and powerful. Another great thing is that it is only 135$! The one problem i had with this gun is that the bolt always stayed back and the bolt release fell off. This issue does not effect the performance at all.

~Great accuracy/power
~ Excellent for the price
~Bolt sounds cool

~Bolt release button fell off
~Mag wobbles a little
~Pretty heavy and long
~Iron sights are pretty hard to see through at night

"I purchased this rifle just getting into the game with some friends who all have very nice AEG's. Some of them were a little skeptical about the CYMA brand but previous reviews and the price mad this something I was interested in. After taking it out for the first time, with an upgraded battery, this gun is absolutely amazing. The versatility of it is remarkable, and it's very accurate even with .2g bb's. It gave me the range and the ability to hit the targets that were just out of range of my friend's P90, and when I would be solo, the full auto capability proved to be very very helpful. In general, if you're just starting the game, looking for something that is good on range and accurate but also can get you out of a tight jam, this is a gun that I would highly recommend.

"I bought this gun around a year ago from a different supplier, for around the same price.
This gun is a great, hard-shooting, accurate gun
Sometimes I use it with a red dot scope and it is extremely accurate.
bbs dont really curve, stay straight
pretty high fps, i approximate around 340-360
not too heavy, although for smaller players it may be too much
barely jams
very nice appearance
low rof
top rail wiggles too much, but tightening the screws helps this

Overall: Great quality gun for a great price.

"Definately a good buy. This was my first airsoft gun i have used. although it is a little heavy, it really adds the realism. The gun shoots at an average rate of fire, but with extreme accuracy even at full. It leaves a good welt on the victim hit. It has the metal parts necessary and is very durable. The finish is very realistic

"The M14 is my favorite gun. Since this is my first electric aeg I'm very critical.I would be very thankful if anyone could help me.I received my order on
Full metal except for 2 or 3 cosmetic pieces including the stock
High fps
Great accuracy
Great range

When I got the gun it had alot of fingerprints on it. I've tried to remove them numerous times but they just won't come off.
I guess the rof should be pretty good but my mags must not have enough spring tension because they misfeed alot,even on single shot sometimes.Could someone give me a link for a better mag?

And for any new airsofters like me, don't make the mistake of reading the badly translated instruction manual given by AGM. I followed their instructions for charging the battery instead of reading the back of the pink sheet Evike gave me, and instead of charging the battery the Evike recomended 5 hours, I charged it 12 and the battery only lasted 10 minutes :( (I need a new battery and charger) MAN THAT WAS STUPID!!!!!!

Oh and the gun is kinda hard to take apart, but if you follow evikes guide it won't stear ya wrong

Over all, this is a great buy for airsoft pros but not that great for beginners.Although I do not regret my purchase

"I purchased this gun and then the 9.6v 4500 ma battery for it. This is a really good gun regardless of the stock color.With the stock battery it's a good gun...with the bigger battery it's a great gun.Be aware you will have to take a wood chisel to the supports inside of the stock and remove the butt-plate to install this IS worth it.Scary piece after this easy mod.Better than a sniper rifle with the full auto availability.

"Just got this last week and it is unbelieveablely good.Really packs a whallop with an excellent ROF.I can 'almost' do away with the spring sniper...almost.The bolt is cool to play with snapping it.This thing is definately heavy so get a good strap and toss the one that comes with it.Great sights and the front rail mounts a dot sight handily for quick access.The Socom version is way wicked looking and a lot easier to handle than a full size version.The magazine has a winding wheel as well as a winding key that really seems to work even better.Would I buy this again?Won't have to it's built like a brick...5 stars all around from me.The wood looks great and makes it look a bit more 'traditional'. When/if it ever starts looking ratty I'll just get out the air brush.
