"ordered this Gun and i am quite pleased with it... a few things that caught my attention right away was there are very few external mods for this gun such as rails. while looking over the gun when i got i niticed a few weak points such as the hand guards and the bipod which can break(it did on mine) i also found the gun to be front heavy but with some added weight to the inside of the buttstock the problem was fixed. the 3 round burst can be used as a single shot as well which is a feature i really like so you can use stealth and still be able to put out rounds fast if needed

Overall i give it a 4/5 for the Gun worth every penny for the Gun

Good weight
strong construction
very accurate with iron sights

Front Heavy
weak Bi-pod
trigger sticks occasionally
only can take a stick battery
no ability to add rails optics or other attachments

one last thing the flashhider is a 14mm positive i do not believe that is listed in the product description

"There is a lot to say about this gun, first off, if you have any doubts about it's maker, it's BE, yes BE the cheap china gun company, but they manged to hit the target in the bull in the case of this gun.

Pros: The rifle is full metal besides the plastic rubberized fore grip, stock, and pistol grip, everything else is made out of a mix of aluminum and zinc. While not the best metal it is it's metal none the less. Which is the main reason this gun is so light. Compared to the Ares G36 it feels about as heavy, So points for being light weight. Which adds to the combat effectiveness of the gun. Another thing that adds to this is the working three round burst and folding bi pod. For most guns to have a burst fire you have to buy an burst wizard to get this. Even guns like the G&G FNC that should have it, fall short here. But the type 89 actually dose have it, and it works with out a hitch.And the guns magazine, it has holes on the side of them to do a quick ammo check. And it lets you know when your running low on bullets. And this gun CAN i say again CAN take M4 mags.

Cons: This gun is not with out it's flaws however, just as with any gun, there's going to be some problems one of which is the fact it can ONLY take an 8.4 AK stick type battery. thus keeping the rate of fire a little on the low side. Also the Parts made of zinc in the gun tend to break. Mainly in the sights, and that's the other thing, the sights are way bad. And your pick on scope mounts is down to TM for the moment. But the middle of the scope mount will fit a .22 rim fire or BB gun scope. And on the one I received the trigger would tend to stick on semi-auto. And the barrel is 6.08 not the best, and I would suggest getting a better one, rather then trying to use the stock one.

I have seen and use A LOT of air soft guns in my time playing, and out of all of them this one stands out as a unique modal in both looks and ability. This is a diamond in the rough kind of gun, but it can stand it's own on the field against other guns.

"I loved this gun, very well built. This gun is full metal except for the fore grip, stock, and (trigger) grip. Nice and lightweight. The 3rd burst is flawless. Good quality although the trigger got disconnected from going over a speed bump. Internals are okay, not the best. Smells good like a new car.

nice fps
awesome rof
super accurate
nice to have M4 mags work
nice mag
great hopup

Hard to get the battery in
Can get wires disconnected very easily
heavy (i guess this could be bad)
Hard to find a scope rail
by Kevin F. on 09/19/2010
"Does this gun have a working bolt (charging handle)?

This gun looks SICK I really want to get it.

Its either this, the D/BOY SCAR-L, or a full size imitation wood M14. Probably this. Just wonddering. Also, how much is metal, how much is plastic. Thanks

"yes it can take m4/m16 mags dont use reviews for questions it says everything in the discription
by Craig A. on 09/30/2009
"Bob, those supposed letters and numbers are in Japanese for the fire selector switch. The 3 is for three round burst.
by Craig A. on 09/29/2009
"Hey Bob,
The settings for the selector switch don't read P, v, 3, 9. There's safety, semi, auto and the 3 is for three round burst mode. The other symbols aside from the 3 are in Japanese. Reason being is this is the weapon used by the Japanese Defense Force.

I think it's a pretty bad ass rifle.
by Bob d. on 09/12/2009
"whats up with the semi and full auto switch it says p ,v ,3, 9?????
by Chris W. on 11/13/2008
"is its rear sight able to come off, and put on like an M4 rear sight?
by Daniel V. on 12/01/2011
"this guns alright, everything falls apart after awhile (well atleast mine did). If your gonna buy a gun at this price get an M4, its better in my opinion.

3 round burst

battery is hard to put in
battery cover is hard to put on
by Michael C. on 11/05/2008
"This is an average gun. I passed on it.

First of all, the gun is heavy. and It was as long as an M-16. The magazines only held 70 rounds And, the battery takes a bit getting used to (for putting it in). However, it does have a 3 round burst, which, in my opinion, is worth $150.00. At impact games (in aiea) it was $480. So, I didn't touch it.

"Not quite sure what metal the gun has, but it is actually a replica of the Howa Type 89 Assault Rifle. It's used by the Japan Self-Defense Forces (hence JSDF). Here's info for the real gun:
by Pierre C. on 12/03/2008
"Ok i'm not doing this as a swipe on the type 89 i love it!
i ordered it a week ago and receive it this week and i just love it!

My concern is the lack of info on the magazine for this rifle.

i'm hearing alot and i've also tested M4-M16 magazines
to find not compatible with this rifle.
I want to buy the magazines for this rifle but no one is answering me
and i don't want to buy a supposed magazine that is said to work
but when received no luck.

Please Evike why did you post this Rifle will accept all the mags
and then tell me it won't!!!

Plesae what MAGAZINE DOES WORKS??????
