||The Type97 is an amazingly well put together gun. It's sturdy, heavy and just feel good in your hands.
It shoots amazing. It's very accurate due to the Bullpup design, and the rate of fire on this thing will definitely stand up to any high-end AEG's.
Since all of the internals are located at the back, it's very well balanced and again, feels great in your hands.
To be honest? The only problem I have with this gun is the battery.
And it's not really a problem, it's more of a positive thing.
In order for Real Sword to make the Type97 to scale, they made a custom gearbox for it and didn't leave much room for the battery. Not saying you're limited to only a certain size of batteries, no.
Hell, I've got a 12v in mine right now, it just took me about an hour taking the gun entirely apart and putting it back together in order to get the damned thing in there.
The good thing that RS did with the battery placement was put the connectors in the pistol grip. So, to charge it, you just slide the bottom off the grip and hook it up to your charger. They've even got a 20amp fuse in there to make sure your don't surge the battery and have to replace it.
All in all you're stupid if you don't get this gun.
I'd give it a six if it didn't break the internet.
PS. One point of note is the mysteriously located mag release button. It's perfectly suited for a lefty like me (on the right side of the gun) but my right-handed friends seem to find it hard to get used to.
