"A&K's replica of the MK43 Mod0 gets the job done, and as a support weapon it is spot on. I checked the fps after 3000 rounds, and without the hop it is consistently shooting in the 1.56 - 1.65 joules range and hop up applied. I have not fired for accuracy, but I have went through countless bbs laying support fire without jams. Rough estimate, I have fired 40,000 - 50,000 bbs and still no issues with the replica.
I advise anyone that is using this for any length of time, remove the rheostat and install the jumper from A&K, or get a MOSFET installed. I enjoyed the rheostat to bring the replica down to a similar ROF as the real steel version. However, the rheostat takes quite a bit of power and drains batteries quickly. With rheostat a 9.6v NiMH 1600mAH lasts roughly 2,500 - 3,000 bbs, which is basically one box mag. Without the rheostat the same battery lasts 6,000 - 8,000 bbs, or roughly two box mags.
Does what a support weapon is designed to for.
Box Mag feed flawlessly with NiMH
Decent battery life without the rheostat
Easy to disassemble for cleaning and repair
Durable! No issues with almost 50,000 bbs fired
Safety switch is in a bad location. Holding the pistol grip can turn the safety off.
Loose parts from factory. Needed to be tightened.
Rheostat drains batteries
Box Mag is not LiPo friendly. Requires mosfet, and new motor in Box Mag to handle a LiPo
Swapping the Box Mag is time consuming. Easier to dump bbs into mag.
No rails for optics without modification, or new feed tray. (Not that optics are really needed)
This is not a Con in my opinion, but this is heavy for airsoft, and awkward to carry. If you want to be fast, accurate, and light the Support role is not for you. "Awesome gun! I absolutely love it and it is very intimidating on the battlefield! It does weigh around 20 pounds I believe so it is heavy, which is a pro for me. It also has a great ROF, especially with the adjustable ROF knob under the flash hider, I just use the included bypass connector so I get max rps. The only downside is that the fps is severely over rated, mine shoots around 260-290 fps with .20g bb's! I was expecting a little more but its an easy fix since the gearbox has a quick release spring mechanism. Also, the carry handle is made out of extremely cheap metal and bent on me since the gun is so heavy. In the end its a fantastic gun and well worth the money, if you ask me! "Bought this weapon last year and I absolutely love it. Rate of fire is awesome, and I have not had an issue with my accuracy going wayward after 100 feet. I used .25 grab bio's in the gun and I can practically snipe with it. The only issue I have had is during one game last season I tripped and the gun took a dive on it's nose and it ended up snapping the rof knob. I just bypassed it completely and it was fine. The last game of the season that I played I had a jam and it ended up stripping several teeth off my sector gear. Fortunately the gear box is super easy to work on and I awaiting the replacement gear. The gun is a little heavy buy its a decent trade off for the amazing way this thing performs. "Amazing great range great fps love the Mag love the weight full metal super durable not for the weak carrying this around all day ain't easy "I've used this gun a lot. Its truly great, but it definitely has a couple flaws.
1) Bipod is very ergonomic, I find myself using that as a fore grip more than the actual fore grip
2) Full metal construction, and it aint pot metal either
3) Great ROF
4) Accurate...to a point.
5) Cant go wrong with 3500 rounds
6) Easy battery installation. You can just throw it in the box mag, under a strap, and there's room for one or two spare mags. Comes in handy.
1) Fore grip is plastic
2) Carry handle WILL BEND OR BREAK IF YOU USE IT
3) because of how the box mag attaches, if you prone/mount the gun on anything, you will knock the mag off and you'll have to put it back on before you run off.
4) Range is terrible. After 100 feet, your shots will go everywhere but where they need to.
5) Extremely heavy. I ran 700 meters with this thing at a jog, and on flat ground, and I could literally not run anymore at the end of it. "This a great support gun it's still keeping heads down! "This a great support gun it's still keeping heads down!

all in all buy this gun, im never going back to regular rifles "Where do I even begin?
This gun was first shown to me over the summer. I thought it was cool but I never pictured myself using/paying for/ owning one. A friend of mine was lucky enough to get one for his birthday and that's what started it all. From there on, I knew I was done with M4's. When I got mine I was so excited, and I was very impressed. This is my second favorite gun (only because I have the PKM now).
-The range isn't bad at all and the accuracy is wonderful.
-The rate of fire is awesome on my 9.6; I take two with me because one doesn't last me!
-It will hold 4000 rounds and the auto wind is nice and quiet.
-Very nice external build quality.
-Comes with 9.6
-Great price; using coupon code "evike2013" my total was $263, just the gun with an extra battery.
-It's heavy (16-17lbs).
-Battery is included but mine did not work.
-My charging handle wasn't on when it arrived.
-New barrel wouldn't hurt anything.
Over all its an amazing gun and I would recommend it to anyone who is tough enough to lug it around!
8.5/10 "This is a great gun, and will last you very long! By very long I mean 6 years at least. This gun can take a beating. I tripped during a backyard war and dropped the gun. Not even a single scratch was made. This gun is lipo ready, and will take 2 years to see a change that the lipo bearly wore it down. If you get this gun maybe get two lipos. The mag is powered by the battery, and the battery also powers the gun itself. Buy this gun if you have the muscles. Honestly after a war your arms will get used to it, and it will feel like a full metal m4. The mag lasted me 3 wars without refilling too. Also use .20 even though the fps is 400 with .12s it doesn't hurt when you shot by moderate distance using .12s. The problem I had is the grip kept getting loose so you would have to tighten it every battle. Not only that the barrel was loose and since the barrel has wires connecting to the fuse, that came along with the ripped out barrel. My brother and I had to weld the wires back together. Other than that everything is ok now. "A great support machine gun for a really great price. Having much experience with the M-60 in the army in the 70's I have to admit this is one incredible replica of the real thing. The heft, the fit and functionality are all here. Outside of the fact that it does not fire center fire .308 ammo, I would swear it was the genuine article. Upon receipt, I unboxed it, set it up, charged the battery, hooked up the box mag (not really that tuff to install on the gun). I fired it and was amazed at the ROF on this baby. once I installed the Mosfet chip. I am tickled to death to own one of these and have a great time showing it off to other experienced vets who know the real gun. Everyone at first did not understand the word airsoft, because around the area I come from not too many are into it like they are around other parts of the country. Maybe I can get the ball rolling and a new habit started since I have a number of these weapons as part of my hobby. I've been more than glad to pass the word along about the hobby and about Evike. Keep up the good work, and I enjoy your instructional videos Thanks. "Ordered one(1) of these and looks mean. Compact and heavy. There are no available upgrades for this one.I installed m125 irregular pitch spring in increase fps but lost some accuracy. Installed 6.01 mm tightbore (470mm length) and tightened groupings alittle using.25's. Quick change spring is a convenience. Installed matrix high speed motor and bypassed adjustable rof mosfet (jumped outer two(2) wires on plug wired to gun, mine did not have jumper plug in packaging) .Initially i ran a 7.4v 2500mah battery thinking that a lipo with that many amps would sustain this gun. I was wrong, because the box mag runs on the same battery, it ate that battery up before emptying the mag halfway(1300-1500 rounds). Installed 9.6v 5000 mah battery and solved that problem and then some. Sounds great with noveske flash hider/amplifier. Hop up nub sits in unit vertically!? Instead of the usally horizontal position we are used to seeing. Mine had a casting burr in the hole where nub was seated thus not allowing me to adjust it accordingly. Easy fix, remove burr. Good weapon to keep'em ducking.
