When I first un-boxed, I was amazed at the weight and quality. Sure the body is made of plastic, but it's good quality plastic (compared to other "cheap" spring guns). I can tell from feeling it. And it's pretty heavy for a cheap spring gun (by heavy i mean compared to other spring guns).

It's not really that strong. I test fire it with a .20 inside my house and shot a small box about 60~70ft and it wouldn't go through the box.

I also purchased a NC Star 4x scope (didn't need a huge magnification), high profile scope rings, and a spare mag with it. Let me say that the scope rail is a bit too forward. I tried to mount my scope as far back as possible and I still have to "lean" my head inwards so I can see the crosshairs. And yes, I've tried messing with the scope so I can see the crosshairs from "normal" head position and there was no luck.

The charging handle is a little hard to cock back and when you shoot it, it does make a noticable sound (but not very loud). And the gun has some recoil when you shoot it.

It does come with a rail adapter that you can put on the gun, but it's only held by 1 screw on the side on the gun, makin the othe side kinda wobbly. An easy fix is it to glue the other side on the body (if you plan on keeping the rails on there).

Overall, I was kinda impressed about the quality. I expected an academy-style gun where it light weigh and cheap material. Although it's not very strong, it's still a great gun. And I really like the look of the gun. This is a great beginners gun, but not really good for seasoned players. And I haven't tested out the range on the gun, but I'm sure it would be less that other snipers out there.

I give this a 5 star because im reviewing it as a beginners sniper, and not just any sniper. Hope this review helps.
