My brother owns this gun, and I will be comparing it to mine, which is the G&G m4 (full metal pro series)

Good things:
The RoF is EXCELLENT. It actually shoots a tiny bit faster than the G&G.
Extremely accurate, once again beating the G&G out by a bit.
The price. It is a great bargain
The stock is very, very stable, the sling mounting point is affixed to prevent rattle
Trademarks look considerably more realistic
The charging handle makes an extremely satisfying "CLICK-CLACK!" when pulled.
Fairly powerful stock, although here the G&G triumphs by a considerable margain (50-60 fps)

Not-So-Good Things

The externals are, for the most part, bad. Almost no metal, the handguards look cheap as heck, barrel wobble is present.
Classic Army, Star, G&G, and D-Boys mags are ALL incompatible without modifaction.
The battery that comes with it is not only extremely bad, but barely fits in the handguard
The wiring job is REALLY bad, they need to be reattached wheneve you put in the battery.



Conclusion? If you have the cash, go for the G&G, they simply are the cream of the crop. If you are an airsofter on a budget, GET THIS GUN! it is, and I believe will be, THE staple airsoft gun for the next few years.
