||Let's see, I bought this gun 3 years ago... damn, that's a long time. Anyways, I give it 5 stars. Here are the reasons:
Awesome Externals (real trademarks, metal, good plastic stock and foregrip)
Aftermarket parts are widely available (both internally and externally)
ROF is a beast with a crappy 8.4v battery
Stock allows a large battery to be held
Nice and heavy (for some this is a con, but I think a gun like this SHOULD be heavy)
Looks beautiful; nice finish that doesnt wear too easily, matching colors, white trades, ect
Accuracy was horrible until I upgraded it with a completely new hop-up unit, new bucking, new barrel, and new nozzle (for better airseal)
Power is lacking, as mine slowly crept down to only 285 fps
Gearbox recently cracked using only the stock spring (but that was after 2 years of heavy use)
Wiring is cheaply done
Not very affordable to some....
This gun is NOT MADE TO BE LEFT STOCK. If you get this gun, expect to spend another $200 or so to get it to where it is skirmish worthy. Trust me on this one, this is the best gun to upgrade, as it has such a nice metal body with such nice trademarks, and very high quality plastic, but the internals just suck.
If you do not upgrade this gun, I rate it 3 stars, because of its performance and gearbox durability. I rated this gun 5 stars because I did not leave it stock, and it looked so beast without having to touch the externals.
Thanks for reading. I hope Evike gets these back in stock....
Rating: [5 of 5 Stars!]
