"I picked this gun up a couple months ago and i have played about 13 ish days total with it roughly 50 or so games, so this is no unboxing review. Firstly I will say this is an awesome starter platform. Now for the pros/cons

-High FPS (mine came out of the box shooting .20g @ a consistent 395 fps) evike has it listed at like 330-350 on my box it had "high FPS version" stamped on it.
-Accuracy for a stock gun this is way accurate.
-it comes with an optic (see cons)
-LONG pica-tinny rail "all the accessories"
-Semi auto feels very crisp
-Cool high cap (that it comes with)

- dust cover is a @%$# to get open while in game (hop-up location)
- Long for CQB (not a problem for me but for some it is)
- FPS was listed wrong on the site not the manufactures fault.
- The optic is garbage that it comes with unfortunately and believe me I tried to like it if you are playing during the day you won't see the dot if you play indoors it will work fine for you.

So for the magazine feeding problems I've seen people talking about. Fill your mid caps about 3/4 the way and you WILL NOT have feeding issues.

"This gun is pretty good. I've had it for about 6 months and it's pretty solid. I've only had a few problems recently but I'm kinda new to airsoft and it seems like a easy fix.

• Made out of polymer and it's super tough and durable

• Is very accurate right out of the box. About 300 fps

• not to bad on price


• The battery compartment is pretty tight

• Sometimes, I have to shoot about 3-5 shots before a bullet comes out. ( on all mags so the issue isn't the mag)

• For some people, the fps is low

"Bought this gun at a local store because the man said it was the best deal they had, and it was. It's accurate and durable, and the enhanced magazine included feels great. The barrel is a bit long to use indoors or in CQB fields, and I was getting around 400 fps, not the 350 they say on this site. I did have a few problems with the magazine not feeding after I fired around 200 BBs from it.

Strong construction
Nice sight included

Long barrel gets a tad annoying here and there
Magazine feeding problems occasionally
9.6v Nunchucks are a tight fit, almost a difficult one.

"This gun is definitely one of the most upgradable guns on the market. For beginners or people on a budget looking for a M4, this gun is one of the best. I highly recommend a tight bore barrel and a new spring and motor. Starting out the gun is great for CQB. Some people say it is good for field too but I could only get about 60 feet of range with this, but putting in a better hop up and tight bore I was able to get about 150 feet+!

"This gun is pretty good. It has good fire right, its really light and it just looks really nice. But, it has some cons, and pros!

Light Weight
PLENTY of room for attachments

Sorta Flimsy
Battery a pain and if you manage to get it the stock won't work properly
It doesn't shoot well when firing semi-auto fast
Magazine Weird

Its an okay gun but get something different and I suggest full metal because you get the feel for the gun.

"I did ALOT of research before buying this G&G R8-L. This gun has the best combined overall features that you would look for in an airsoft gun. This gun has an nylon ABS reinforced upper and lower receiver, and front stock. I attach externals to my gun so I prefer the saving of 2.5 pounds. Besides, these items will never fail. It shoots 350fps with .20g, and the rof is about 800. It comes with an excellent quality red dot scope (all aluminum) and a very good 9.6V 1600mah battery with a ac charger which has an indicator light for full charge and automatic cut off. This gun has a great overall feel and look with accuracy built in. I highly recommend this gun.

weight 5.5 lbs
power and accuracy
great look and feel
nice red dot scope (included-retails about $55)
Good battery and charger (included)
nice 450 hi cap mag
nothing loose or wobbly
G&G quality
