New Version HFC Full Metal / Fully Automatic Select Fire Airsoft M9 Special Force Gas Blowback
by Adam L. Date Added: January 31, 2010
You get what you pay for. Order date 9/29/2009, this and two magazines, and a propane adapter were purchased. (Comes with a case) Upon receiving it on the 3rd of October, I field stripped it to lubricate it before use. Further inspection of the parts revealed a piece of tape around the top of the hop up unit for the inner barrel, and a little wear on the slide rail. I didn't want to assume that Evike just sent me a lemon or a used one, so I just continued lubing the parts. After lubing all the parts, I proceeded to firing, nice recoil, the slide and slide lock works, and also the full auto works. The safety switch however was very stiff to move down, and the only way I could get it to full auto, was to first put it on safe, and push it up to full. Meh not too much of a problem. A month and a half later, I found out the trigger spring broke, so I bought the King Arms "reinforced" spring set. Here I was thinking, "man I think Evike DID send me a lemon/used gun (Reasons: 1 because of the tape, 2 metal wear, and 3 because the trigger spring broke after less than 700 cycles[measured by amount of times filling the 100 round speed loaders]) but it's too late to send it back".

Replaced the spring, and put all the parts back together from exactly how I saw them when disassembling it. Researched some forums to confirm that I assembled it correctly, and did a test fire, the trigger spring did its job, but there seemed to be another issue. When firing, I could only get about 6-10 shots off of it before it cycled correctly(I.E. would blow back only partially) and after those shots the slide lock wasn't of use because the slide didn't go back far enough. So I did some research and its apparently a pressure issue. Bought the gas chamber assembly and am now waiting for a back-order(due to the holiday shopping chaos Evike had to face). Problem after problem... I'm not even sure if that part will fix it.

Conclusion: It's a fine weapon, when it's actually functioning. It plays it's role perfectly as a secondary as it saved my in-game life a few times when I had a jam on my m16 and needed to transition. Just like any clone, it might be prone to a defect because there's not much quality control on their part. Or I could have been just unlucky with my m16 (a JG, but no longer one[now custom built]), and with this HFC. Just remember, you're always gambling but only going to gamble with the quality. I hope I wrote a review "In depth" enough.

On a side note: *This is not directed towards anyone in particular but I've seen too many of these and I'm tired of it* People this is a review section, don't ask questions, don't review it until you've tried all it's functions, and realize that there's more than three options of "stars" to rate an item(I.E 1,3,5 try using 1,2,3,4, and 5). If you have to ask an admin or experienced person a question, call Evike up, go on a forum, email, or heck there's a freaking "Contact Us" When you answer or ask a question you're just messing up the product's deserved rating. There's a "Review Guidelines" given above before you type your review, I'm sure Evike put it there for a reason.
