"When I first got this gun, I really liked it. I had good range and accuracy despite the very short barrel. If I had to guess I would say the gun could shoot around 180 ft.
It had wasn't a gas hog, you could probably get 50 shots on a good fill. It was loud so it scared my friends, and it kicked hard. Overall I enjoyed playing with it.

Now, the bad news.
I don't know if mine was defective, but after firing about 400 shots at the most, the receiver cracked. I don't understand how it happened. I never abused the gun, I kept it well lubricated, and clean. I had not used it much and when I did I was careful with it. I find it sad that the gun cracked because of its own hard recoil.

The receiver cracked right beside the fire selector, just above the pistol grip.
So anyway here are some pros and cons.

Pros:
Good range
Hard Kick (Kind of a con)
Loud (could be a con)
good gas consumption
compact and light

Cons:
Hard kick (It broke the gun)
The plastic used cannot handle the hard kick.

I think it would be a good gun if the receiver was steel or something.
That would fix all the problems.

Hope this was helpful.

"I have used this gun for two months now. I have taken it out on multiple ops and it has performed perfectly. It is a gas blow back, so you will need to give it a little more TLC than a AEG but this gun has worked perfect. It really shines in the CQB settings. It kicks really hard and feels really good in your hand.

I would strongly encourage anyone to take a hard look at this gun.

"Overall, an excellent buy. The rifle itself is amazingly light, but that doesnt take anything away from its durability. I've had this rifle since November and have played in cold (for a Floridian that's 50 degrees) and hot temperatures. When it is cold out, you have to be very careful with your rate of fire because it loves to jam. The solution is odd, but I find it best to run this gun dry. The more you lube it, the poorer it performs. If you must lube, use a light coating of the lightest silicone oil you can find. In the warmer temps however, it performs flawlessly with the exception of a few mag feeding jams on a few occasions. I'm satisfied with this gun except for the fact that my gun did not come with a bolt catch, and Evike refuses to special order it for me. While it doesn't affect the performance of the gun, technically, its depressing that the bolt doesn't lock back when you're out of ammo and simply continues to fire.

Pros:
Amazing kick
light
durable
low maintenance
Reliable in warm weather
Reliable enough in cold weather
CQB Friendly
Loud

Cons
No bolt catch (I seem to be the only person with this problem)
Loud
Low ammo capacity
Expensive mags
LIMITED SPEED LOADER COMPATIBILITY

"Very satisfied with the gun. The metal bolt moving around in the polymer body provides existential kick back when compared to most gbbr of its size. I play field with the 12'' carbine kit on it and it performs very well. It is nice of GHK to provide after market parts for there guns that way you know you are going to get the same build quality to expect from them. I do recommend that you purchase the steel charging handle (can be found on evike) because it is a key part of the weapon necessary for function. Overall its a great gun.




One down side is all the "codsofters" mistaking this for the Scorpion Evo 3

"this is an amazing gun! i got the last one (sorry all of you looking to get it) i highly recommend this rifle to anyone looking to get a GBBR that is extremely light, has badass hard kick recoil, and is so loud you couldn't believe it was CQB friendly. Plus its not like every other M4 out there.

It does have its share of problems that aren't so hard or expensive to fix.
I actually bought one and took it home and while test firing and trying to zero in the sights i noticed that it was misfeeding every shot. Apparently there is a little rubber o-ring on the bolt that acts as a buffer so the bolt doesn't smash into a little seal in the inner barrel. if you fire on full auto for a bit it falls off and the bolt totally destroys that little plastic seal causing it to miss fire and need to be replaced.

What i did is go down to a hardware store and buy an HNBR o-ring kit. what works best is a 1/4"x27/64"x5/64 o-ring. get that and save you some time and money and replace the original one and you got yourself a kick ass little gun.

i just field tested it today and damn i felt like the coolest guy at the prom. Everyone was asking to try it out and those who i graced with it are probably ordering one right now. so here's some pro's and con's

pro's: hard kick, lightweight, loud and proud, sexy, CQB friendly

con's: that o-ring problem but now that i told you about it you can go and fix it or whatever! also the stock mag it came with leaks if i release all the gas and leave it overnight... but if i fill it up and leave it the leak tends to dissipate... i don't get it but it happened to 2 mags already so there's that

"Just got this gun and i'd have to say I'm impressed. The polymer body is really sturdy and its texture feels great. Also, its not heavy. the included magazine is super high quality and the bolt function is very crisp. No wobble at all, even in the folding stock. there's a speed loader included with a lip for feeding WA type magazines like the one it comes with. the only downside is the spare mags aren't cheap. Overall, it's the best gbb rifle i've seen if you can afford the spare magazines.
