"I acquired this a couple of months ago.

Pros:
1. Not a common gun on the field, so you do get 2nd looks
2. if you need a support weapon or LMG, this is it. Lighter than an M249 or M60 - I've owned both - this definitely has advantages in its lighter weight. It can even be used as primary for those with good upper body strength.
3. uses MOST M4 type mags - although I was disappointed to find it will not accept an A&K 5000 rd. box mag, which would be ideal. I assume the C-mags should work - need to buy one.
4. build quality - par none - definitely worth the price

2 cons so far:
1. small battery compartment - considering a larger battery in an external battery bag. For now, my 11.1v buffer tube lipo fits with room to spare; would like a higher mAh rated one though.
2. the pistol grip now wobbles and tightening requires a complete breakdown of the gearbox area to get to the bolt or screw - poorly designed IMO.

Otherwise, need a support gun ? Buy this one !!!

"If you are looking for a bullpup design (one hand operation gun) and mainly to get away from the traditional M4 or AK, the ICS L85 or L86 series are definitely something I recommend.

This model definitely works as a sniper as it is accurate at 150+ feet with the bipod and extremely long barrel. For those who never used an ICS gun, they have one of the best finish, internal and design. If you like to work on your guns, ICS is a great gun to work on.

Pro:
Definitely something different and stands out in the crowd.
Accurate
Awesome looking

Con:
Heavy, so consider something else if you are a kid or small.

"I have had one of these for a while now. I have used it both stock and with several upgrades. Stock configuration, this thing is great. It runs like a top. Out of the box it is able to take a LIPO due to the non-standard trigger contacts that it has. It has a great Rate of Fire and great power. The adjustable spring guide allows for adjustable FPS on the gun which is a great feature.

In a heavily upgraded version, the gun isn't as good. the 7mm mechbox isn't able to take hyper ROF upgrades. Mine was pushing 35 rounds per second at 385 FPS and I kept grenading the ball bearings. I was about to switch back over to solid bushings when the motor cage for the gun broke.

Evike has some parts for the gun available, which is nice. I had my trigger contacts break on me due to the overly tough safety. But the motor cage is proving to be a complete pain in the butt to get at this point. No one offers the part. I can't get it from any retailsrs, even special order. It's infuriating.

Pros:
Great construction, very solid.
No barrel flex when using bi-pod.
Great FPS and ROF.
Flawless feeding.
Long barrel length for great accuracy.

Cons:
Doesn't like hyper ROF
parts can be a real pain to find.
