||This is my first GBB airsoft pistol, actually, my first airsoft pistol period. I bought it because of the full auto capabilities and it is also full metal. It came with a plastic case, metal magazine, and some BB's. The first thing I did when I got it was test the sliding action and cycling rate. It was clunky at first, and sometimes the slide would not go all the way back to resting position. Full auto was nice, not as fast as an aeg, but still pretty cool. Selection switch was a little hard to get into safety.
Finish - The external finish on the gun was nice, a kind of textured dark grey almost black metal finish. The barrel had a blaze orange tip painted on it, and the barrel and spring guide were also matched to the color of the slide and frame. It has some trades on it, but they were nothing to write home about, I kind of wish they would have left the trades off. Grips are plastic, not rubber, but they look like they could be changed easily with other grips.
Function - As I stated before, the slide was less than smooth, and sometimes would not cycle all the way back to it's resting position. However, for a $85 GBB gun with full auto, I am not complaining. I got about 2 magazines from 1 fill of gas, that's about 50 bb's on semi auto.
My mods (I only recommend doing this if you are experienced in this type of work and know the internals of a gbb pistol):
-Polished slide on the inside, including rails
-Polished receiver guides
-Polished the spring guide
-Polished the inside of the inner barrel
-Polished the outside of the outer barrel (little bling action)
After polishing, and lubing the internals with Tri-flow on the metal parts and Dupont silicon on the rubber and plastic, performance was as follows tested with Chrony chronograph:
-306 fps consistent with 5 shots full gas, 5 second spacing between shots using KSC perfect .20g high polished bb's.
-Slide is now silky smooth, feels like a WA pistol
-Slide now goes back to full rest position, no matter where it is released from on the frame, every time
-Excellent cycling in semi and full auto
-Accuracy has increased
I basically turned a cheap gbb with novel full auto capabilities that actually turned some heads at the field. After about 25 magazines through it, no problems, and it is actually feeling even faster now. I did, however, order a part 30 and extra trigger spring, just in case. With a little elbow grease, and time, you can turn it into a really nice gun without having to buy anything extra. I am very happy with this pistol and think it is probably the best bang for the buck in airsoft gbb guns.
