"This is a bit of a pain to put together but I accomplished it with no instructions and no online tutorials. Very solid and very unique. For a person like me that has a huge Boneyard of parts I was able to assemble basically everything I wanted except for a few custom touches out of the scraps from leftover guns. I didn't really have any issues with anything fitting but perhaps I just got lucky in that department. I ended up going with a G&G gearbox full of aftermarket goodies a Noveske rail and unknown outer barrel. Everything fit well although I did have to source a couple parts that were supposed to come with it, and ended up receiving two selector switches instead of one for some unknown reason. Fortunately everything that is specific to the SR 47 was included.

The one con I will give it was finding mags that fit. None of my lonex, nor any other magazines I happened to have lying around would fit, not so much fit because they fit in the mag well but wouldn't feed. G&P mid caps do the trick just fine and are all I run in the gun now, the only other gripe relates to the mag well as well it really need some type of block off plate at the top of the mag well otherwise you really have to focus to get the magazine in, it's not a quick Mag swap on the field.

Other than that I have a beautiful custom rifle now that stands apart and I am very happy with it

"Okay, so I got this trying to find something really unique that still uses V2 gearbox parts. And I certainly got that.

The Good:

A nice black painted finish with good logo paint as well.

All parts to convert from a normal M4 are included.

A very nice unique look.

The Bad:

This almost certainly will take modifications to get everything to fit properly.

The Ugly:

Absolutly no instructions included and no tutorial online.
This was extra hard for me because of simple things such as the bolt release and which way the dust cover pin goes and little things of the sort.

Overall a great buy. There's not really anything else like it. I get complimented all of the time and it has a super aggressive look with the Centurion Arms 12" rail (the one that is really slim and uses their own system) and a suppressor.

I'm afraid that this won't be availabe for much longer seeing that it's been on the Epic Deals list and the price keeps dropping, so get it while you can!

"Not a beginner project by any stretch of the imagination. However... I dig it. I get lots of compliments, questions etc on "What is that... THING?!?!?"

The Good:
VERY unique, while still using commonly found magazines.
Good quality materials
Much Less expensive than the $500 HurricanE kit.
Mostly TM-Spec.
Basically a blank slate; customize to your liking.

The Bad:
Comes with a crappy selector, I'd recommend sourcing your own.
Upper Receiver required a small amount of milling to easily slide over my gearbox.
Proprietary Hop-Up design. I want my ProWin :(
Finicky with Mags.

With that being said, I like it. Just take care assembling it, don't force anything as the tolerances are TIGHT, and you'll be fine.

"The receiver is made of low quality pot metal. It broke as i was inserting a pin for the trigger guard. I've done that before I used a rubber mallet and took the proper precautions and the receiver broke on the third strike.

"This is a very nice piece of work, I was fortunate to win one at the raffle after Operation Fallout. It was a bit of a challenge to put together as it came with no directions and there is nothing on-line to help. It comes with lots of little pieces so make sure your work area is clean and organized. After a bit of trial and error, I got it together and it is pretty sweet.
