||This gun is AWESOME! I purchase this as my first airsoft gun and have not been disappointed.
Although this gun is not cheap, it is well worth every last cent. I have put over 100,000+ rounds thru this gun without as much as a hickup. The only upgrades that have been made are a heavier spring for FPS, and tight bore barrel for grouping at distance.
I added a lipo battery for the rate of fire and the gun currently shoots 350 fps @ 30 round per minute.
I was concerned about the lipo damaging the gear box, but I have inspected the gear box and found not signs of wear.
The only failure that I have had is a anti reverse latch. From what I have heard, that is a rare break and is more of a flaw in the latch than anything else.
I know this gun is not cheap, but when you buy a cheaper gun and upgrade internal parts, and upgrade other internal parts, and more internal upgrades, the cheaper gun cost you alot more and you have alot of money in useless parts in your garage that you end up giving away. Great for your friends, but bad for you wallet.
To sum it up, THIS GUN IS A WORKHORSE, AND WILL NOT DISAPPOINT!!
When others' guns are failing on the field, and yours is still working, it sucks for the 'others'.
I have not come home early because of a failure on this gun! If you have experienced a gun failure in the field you know how it feels, it sucks!
If you have the money, BUY IT!. If you don't have the money, WAIT and buy what you really want.
Hope this helps to make you decision.
