$289.00

Have had one of these for about a year now. Love it. Shoots great out of the box (I clocked it at 385 with .2s), decent grouping at range. After a month or two I upgraded the barrel to a Prometheus tightbore and changed the hop bucking to a PDI W-Hold and the gun went from great to fantastic. Its not the most powerful gun in my collection, but its the one I find myself reaching for more and more during volatile, think-on-your-feet type games.

PROS
-Value
-Power/accuracy: I usually have several single-fire, "one shot one kill" moments when using this gun
-Maneuverable: folding stock is great for tight places
-Sturdy construction and materials
-Huge mag: carried a single one for most games for a long time
-ICS easy to open up
-Clip together mags make for a really fast reload, no risk of dropping one in the woods

CONS
-Iron sights aren't great, but let's be honest: its airsoft, you barely use them. They're true to the real steel anyway.
-Had one spare mag that was defective and stopped working after a game or two. Not sure if that's a common flaw or just a weird fluke. Other mag has been working non-stop with no issue.
-Stock hop up could be a bit stubborn, felt like it needed to be reset periodically.
