||Friend bought this with my guidance of "metal gear box" and "at least $60". Somehow, he still ended up with a plastic gearbox M4... so anyways, it's decent.
DBoys, all plastic except barrel and outer barrel, plastic hopup, the "cocking" mechanism cocks back and the hopup cover pops out.
12 hours charge? Bull. Battery came in low, so 2 hours it was becoming warm.
ROF is crazy, honestly, about 20RPS (chrono) stock on a 90% charge. Will empty clip FAST.
Hopup is rather poor, without it turned on and shooting .20's, it will literally drop after 5 feet (no joke).
Hopup all the way, and pointing up, it will reach the 50-75 feet mark, and a bit more with .12's (suprisingly, aim is still quite straight on with Crosman glow-in-dark walmart seamed BB's).
Sling is useless, you can pull it apart with your hands, and the M203 is a shotgun...
WITH A MAGAZINE. Weird, but yes, the M203 has a magazine, and you NEED the 203 to place the battery in (it's not like the Wells or cheap eBay M4/M16's where you put the battery under the RIS).
The "flashlight" is fake. It's a hunk of plastic... lol. Charger gets a bit warm for only being on for a couple hours, but works none the less. Good feel, but M203 is wiggly - secured by one screw and a "pop" type of spring that sort of clicks into place.
And M203 shoots rougly 250FPS, with MAJORRRR hopup. MAJOR as in sends .12's literally a 50 degree angle up (no overexaggeration). Not corrected with seamless .20's, need roughly .25's or .28's to make it work out, but for the price, great gun.
Pros: ROF, ok build, two METAL magazines. Hi cap empties rather fast though.
