||Had my first combat test with this gun today. It handled great and shot every bit as well as a high $$ spring sniper. Very good power and high accuracy up to 75' (soda can 9 out of 10 shots and I'm an average shooter). Accuracy was still quite good at 100' but it tended to go to the left and lose some fps but still hit hard enough to register a 'ping' and confirmed kill. Here is what I discovered after 6 hours of intense games:
Accuracy is top notch up to 75' and still decent at 100'.
Durable: the gun is built well out of sturdy plastic and has metal in all the right places.
Rail system: I ended up taking it off as it interfered with my sights.
Sights: after I took off the RAS the iron sights proved to be incredible. I was able to adjust the rear sight to compensate for the 100' drift of the BB to the point of making head shots.
Magazine: the magazine is very sturdy although a bit of a pain trying to get back into the gun if you are in a hurry or wearing gloves (be careful when loading it in and do NOT force it)
Power: even at 100' my targets registered hits with ease.
Action: Cocking is smooth and easy.
Reliability: after 6 hours almost non-stop I didn't have one jam.
Overall: for the price you are getting a beast of a gun. As with all airsoft, proper cleaning, care, and high quality BBs (I only buy from Evike) will give your gun the best performance. I highly recommend this gun to anyone looking to get an accurate sniper rifle on a budget, just don't expect much out of the rail system attachment but that's only my opinion. The gun itself has a small rail on the bottom toward the front of the gun. I HIGHLY recommend getting a bipod for that as it made sniping from a fixed position a breeze. Like many others I have to agree that the scope kinda blows but that really only applies to the M14 itself. I use a UTG MP5 AEG as my backup weapon with a claw mount and I put the scope and the flashlight that came with M14 on that and it greatly improved my CQC ability (the flashlight feels cheaply made but is actually REALLY good for a small AEG).
I hope this review helps anyone looking to buy this gun. Happy gaming!!!
