Double Eagle M14 SOCOM Airsoft Spring Powered Rifle with Red Dot, Flashlight, Laser
by Gabe M. Date Added: November 7, 2010
This gun is awesome. It is very accurate with the iron sights. I recommend not using the red dot sight and the flashlight because they are of low quality. The flashlight is not very bright, and the red dot sight is made cheaply. My red dot sight came with a missing lens cap axle and the power switch part broke off when I removed it from the Styrofoam packaging, so it was hanging by two wires (It was poorly glued on). Some scotch tape or super glue can easily fix this.

The gun itself has a plastic body. The plastic is very nice and has a sturdy feel. The adjustable iron sight is very nice, and I recommend not using the RIS that comes with the gun, to make aiming easier. I also recommend putting white-out on the sight to make it more visible (I do this with all my guns). The barrel, cocking mechanism, adjustable sight, trigger, safety, and trigger guard, the bottom rail and the front sling mount are metal. The paint on the metal can be scratched off by your fingernails very easily. I highly recommend getting a 3 point sling for an extra $15 because the back sling mount is weak plastic. I used the cheap sling it came with as a "poor-man's pistol lanyard". Also, an extra mag is only $9, so don't pass up that opportunity. Lastly, I recommend a bottom rail-mounted bipod for an extra $12.

-high fps with .2g bbs
-very accurate (The red dot sight included is very accurate, although made of bad plastic and near-useless at nighttime)
-comes with an RIS
-hurts a lot when you get shot by it
-nice heavy and sturdy feel to it
-a lot of metal parts
-adjustable iron sight
-short SOCOM barrel makes the gun easier to run with
-cocking bolt is not very hard to cock back
-mag holds about 40 shots

-paint on the metal parts is easy to scratch off
-red dot scope and flashlight are not very good quality
-rear sling mount is bad plastic (not a problem for a 3 point sling)
-RIS makes iron sights harder to use (not a problem if a scope is mounted)
-it requires practice to insert the mag properly

This gun is a must buy for starting Airsofters or anyone who regularly participates in backyard battles. For $45, you get an amazing sniper that is compatible with a lot of good accessories.
