20 Customer Reviews

"Well I FINALLY recieved this gun, after ordering it in MAY. (Just got it in Spetember). Although I had to wait 4 months basically before I got this thing, it might have been worth the wait.

First I want everyone to know it is NOT the color in the picture. It is a much darker earth tone tan more like a brown really than a tan. Its ok, I personally like the color, and although I think I might have prefered the lighter tan, its still ok.

Second the trigger pull on this is HORRIBLE, you will need to break it in. Its very heavy and a very long pull. My friend has the full metal matrix so I knew it was going to be a bit heavy, but these are even worse than that. Perhaps just a little breaking it in and it will get better (if so I will update the post). Its not to bad on full auto at about 13-15 rps with a 9.6. I would NOT put a LIPO in this thing because even though its says "lipo" ready it would not stand up to the abuse of a lipo for very long.

In all fairness I guess I could be biased as my main weapon is a KWA sr10 and this was actually purchased as a rental gun, as I am my areas leader and we need rental guns for the OPS we host.

All in all I give it 4 out of 5 for overall price to quality. It shoots mostly straight, the Hop is very adjustable, out of the box it chronos at 380-390 fps with .2g bbs (verified with an Alpha chrony, one of the most reliable on the market). I got it for a pre-order rate that was well worth it, and for a rental gun, I will most likely be picking up at least a few more of these.

"i got this gun 2 days ago and wow it blew me away. its almost prefect, some flaws bu not many in my book.

Pros:
metal barrel
hard abs plastic body
380fps got the box
everything works great

Cons:
barrel is loose (like it move side to side, not much, but its there)
hard to get cover off to put battery in
the orange tip screw put was stripped so i just left it on :(
no battery but i can understand cuz the gun was 99$

overall a great gun for your money i recommend getting it and plus its from a trusted company Matrix :)

"I don't normally write reviews, but this one felt necessary:

I received this gun just a few days ago and right out of the box it was amazing. It hit hard and the ROF wasn't too bad. The gun felt solid and looked just plain mean; however, the hi-cap that came with it was cheap and fed terribly. I recommend a mid-cap mag for this gun. Unfortunately, the charging handle became stiff and locked open and the entire front assembly (ext. barrel, handguard, front sight) became loose. I tightened it myself and it felt like it was good to go. I took it out to fire a couple clips, but the entire barrel shook in full auto, causing a dramatic decrease in accuracy. This is the SECOND defective gun i have bought from Evike. In terms of gear and ammo, Evike has been perfect with excellent service, great prices, and fast shipping; however, I don't think I'll be buying another gun from them. Maybe it's just my luck. If you were to get one that has no issues, this would make an awesome starter gun. I'd recommend at least a 9.6v battery and mid-cap magazines.

PROs:
-Nice look
-Great price
-Awesome fps
-Lightweight and sturdy (for the most part)
-Cross between ABS and Metal, awesome
-Great starter gun (if it works)

CONs:
-Mag that comes with it is bad
-Wobbly handguard (not too bad)
-Stock seems kind of shaky, and the screw holding the handle to adjust it came off and doesn't tighten
-ROF isn't great, its okay for some people (Get a better motor)
-Mine seems defective, the whole front end shakes and seems like it'll come off.

Overall: More PROs than CONs, but the CONs are all major parts whereas the PROs are just little perks.
Personally, I wouldn't buy it again, but maybe it'll work out better for someone else.

"Normally I would not write a review to give negative feedback about a weapon, but this just seemed absolutely necessary.

I owned this weapon for about two weeks before everything feel apart. I took it out and lightly played a few close quarters games with it. it fed well, the rate of fire was good, and the fps and range was consistent. However, one fateful afternoon I was tweaking the magazine catch and it was accidentally dropped off of the two foot table I was working on. At first I thought "oh no big deal, it will be fine". I was terribly wrong.The entire upper receiver and lower receiver broke in two pieces after only a two foot drop and hard wood floor impact. The plastic body on this weapon is the worst I have ever seen on an A.E.G. This was bought to be an upgrade platform, of course, but I was expecting to get some use out of it. I've seen better plastic on a toy you can buy at a gas station. I am not new to airsoft and have owned multiple weapons: G&G, G&P, Elite Force etc. Never have I seen such terrible body quality. The wiring also immediately went out on this weapon and I had to replace that as well. Eventually the entire gearbox gave out and the gun is now just spare parts for a different build. Keep in mind I only used this weapon on a 9.6 volt battery, NOT a lipo. Overall, If you want a reliable weapon, Save up some cash and learn about the internal parts and external parts you would like in your "dream gun" and make your own custom build. It will save you money, time, and be much less frustrating.
