"I love the M14 and wanted to use one in a reenactment group, and I thought this one would fit the bill for a reenactment/Airsoft use, I was right on the reenactment part, it looks beautiful, but what awaits is sad
Maybe I got a lemon but the gun would not stop firing full auto after the trigger was released, and the semi auto fired full auto bursts of 2-5 bbs, and after 2 days, the oprod broke and the charging handle does not go foreword, just stays in the back position. I didn't think it would fall apart on me this quickly for a gun that I only heard good things about "impressed is a good word to describe my feelings about this rifle.
it comes fully assembled so you get to experience it right from the box. nothing loose or wobbly. it's heavy (much more than i expected) especially for the synthetic stock. the factory battery fits easily behind the well-built butt plate, with room to spare. it actually needs some padding to keep it from clunking around. out of curiosity, i tried fitting a 7.2v 3000mAh battery from an RC car into the compartment. it fit like a glove (a tight one) and added some nice balance/weight to the rear. since the 7.2v racks the stock gearbox same as the 8.4v, i think i'll keep it there. i don't plan on needing a RoF faster than my finger.
the imitation wood stock looks pretty convincing but it does have some flex when you grip it and the seams are visible and uneven.
rear peep sight is adjustable up/down and left/right…and it's solid. the moving charging handle is a neat "plus" but kinda unnecessary. sure, it adds to the realism but it is 100% cosmetic—no internals are accessible under it. the spring holding the handle shut is fairly weak (i guess) because it allows the (rather heavy) assembly to slide back and forth as you run or when you quickly rest the butt on the ground.
using my uncalibrated eye-chrono, it shoots 0.25g BBs at around "fast". it also shoots them pretty accurately. i was testing batteries by plinking rocks (~2.5"x1.5") off the top of a fence. they were only 30' away but i was still impressed. i stayed impressed as i stretched the distance out to around 100' at a sheet of paper.
i'm very happy with this purchase. if you're on the fence, i say go for it! "Ive had this weapon for 5 years now and still running the same way it did out of the box! Ive used this gun every where from cqb to field to sniping and hasn't failed once on me. This gun is hands down the best m14 you can buy that has reliability and accuracy that goes hand to hand right of the box. Honestly i haven't even had to open up my gun over all these years, which is rare even in high $$$$ aegs. Soon I'm looking forward to putting a miracle barrel in just to tighten the pattern a little, but you really dont even need it.
Durable as a rock
Accurate as a $1000 aeg
Authentic look and feel
Rate of fire is true to the real steel
none what so ever!
Overall opinion: ......why are you still looking at the reviews? Go buy one to see yourself! It wont disappoint!!!
Also get a rail system over the bolt so you can use optics/scopes, because youll need them if youre sniping "I've had this rifle for about 6 months and I must say it is an excellent DMR for me. I got this in a trade and because I'm the repair man for everybody when they have a broken gun or gear, so they gave me this to fix and keep. This thing is a work horse, with everything I've put it through I'm surprised it still running. I drilled holes and adapted some rails to the front and it's pretty sweet. (no $ for aftermarket rails) You may also want to upgrade to a better battery. The one it comes with dies a little early and has a slower ROF than other batteries.
-Customizable (for creative minds)
-Not a very common gun (around me anyway)
-Durable (internally) been through rain and mud, everything else
-One side if the stock broke...fixed it...broke again (for a good reason)
-It's longer than other guns, even some snipers, you may hit it on some trees n' stuff when running.
-You may want to be tough to have this. It's front heavy. I'm perfectly fine with it, but others are uncomfortable using it. "I bought this rifle some 2 years ago, and even with all the other rifles I've bought, this one, is still my work horse.
It has never once failed me. The entire two years I've owned it, I have never had to have any work done on it. Shoots ~340 fps with 0.20g which is good, because it's just on the limit for CQB rules, so I have a powerful hitter in close quarters. Motor runs beautifully, never jammed, never broken shot, hell, I'm still using the 8.4 that came with it and it lasts for ~3000 rounds. it has really, REALLY good range and accuracy.
Equipment isn't the easiest to find, but it isn't the hardest either. There are box sets for mid cap mags to order, and you can find hi-caps at any airsoft retailer. They aren't as cheap as say an M4, but nothing compared to my PPSH or my BAR. Because this one is a vintage style, customization is limited, but you can find rail kits and other mounting equipment here on evike.
My only beef with it is the battery compartment. It is woefully under-sized which forces you to bend and strain the wires, connectors, and fuse to get everything to fit. The wires to my fuse are fraying and are about to go out, but that's a simple replacement. Nothing major.
I strongly recommend this rifle to anyone looking for a low maintenance rifle with high performance that everyone and their grandma doesn't own. It really is a head-turner. "So far, the gun is great. However, Evike says that the battery that comes with the rifle is a small 8.4v. Its actually a large 8.4. Also the battery fits terribly in the gun. Its very tedious to put it in. However, the rest of the gun is great. Fantastic weight, and feel. The metal parts are solid, not pot metal, but good material. It shoots straight, (with .25) and is accurate. My personal favorite thing about the weapon however, is the sound of the bolt. Its amazing. Other minors cons.
Bolt sounds great.
Hefty, and Realistic
Very solid materials
Battery is very large for such a small space
The Magwell is very big. In front of the magazine is a small port, about a half inch large for the hop-up. It may bother some. Also, the hop-up is very stiff. (Pro or Con) "I received this gun just the other day, and it's so beautiful. After a few adjustments to the gun it shoots like a beast (war tested). The 2 mags that come with it are really the only ones you need. Of course the "Holly cow" deal of 2 more for $5 isn't always a bad idea either. I still plan on getting a rail or 2 for a scope and maybe a bi-pod.
-The Fps is around 390-425 (9.6 volt)
-The rate of fire is good for a gun that was only a semi auto back in the day.
-The gun is incredibly realistic.
-The spread is incredibly small. Almost perfect accuracy. (9/10 shots hit)
-Using .23gram i can shoot and hit targets at 160 feet with little effort.
-The battery is a little tricky to get in and out, but the battery casing is the best I've seen.
-Can be a little heavy(8.5 lbs.) if you do not have a strap, or are a weak person(me).
Overall it is a great air soft weapon. If you like to snipe, or are just someone who enjoys holding ground in a war, This gun is for you. "BEST GUN EVER CREATED!!!!
High fps 380-420
Easy to handle
Really reliable as well
Battery is hard to put in
A little heavy
other than that..... ITS AWESOME!!!!!! "This gun overall is pretty awesome! It has a pretty good rate of fire, excellent range, and good accuracy. So my friends with their M4's get pinned down when i'm out of their range. And one of my favorite things about this gun is that it's quiet! After firing some of my friend's weapons, this gun seems REALLY quiet.
However, it is fairly heavy just like a real M14, and the battery is a pain to get in and out. "great gun. has a good rof with the stock battery shoots 370 out of the box. the included mags suck reccomend mid caps. first upgrade should be a madbull 6.01 tightbore and metal hopup
very realistic(the functional charging handle scared my friend the first time i pulled it back)
outstanding gearbox and motor, once the barrel and hopup are upgrade it will pwn
took mr 20 minutes to fit the battery in the compartment
crappy hopup and mags
no rails "Great gun! It Has really good range and accuracy. It outperforms any other gun i have encountered! It shoots hard, and is very easy to use. My only problem with the gun is the battery. The battery is a HUGE pain to get in and out of the gun. I am always worried i will break a wire trying to get the battery into my gun.
A little heavy
But if those doesn't bother you, then this gun is near perfect! "I got this gun a few months ago and over all i am pleased, its mostly metal except for the stock and heat shield.The accuracy is good i hit a can from about 125-150 feet away and it will put a hole in the bottom of the can. Now im hoping to get some rials. Displaying
