Just got this rifle in today and I must say I am very impressed.

First off Evike.com was great to me about it being on Pre-order and notified me of updates the whole way through. Then they shipped it out as soon as they got it in.

The first impressions of this gun are great, real wood, sturdy metal exteriors, tight fitting parts, and plenty of extra tools and instructions. There are no plastic parts visible on the gun though I am sure there are a few in and around the gearbox. This gun feels like you are holding a real steel gun.

I found my first Con when trying to access the battery compartment inside the handguard. It was nearly impossible to get off without scratching the wood or chipping my tools. When I finally got off the ring holding the two halves in I was able to sand down the parts a little more and now they come off with a little more ease.

Back to more good stuff, I found that the gun shoots extremely constistant. (not very surprisingly) And shoots at around 390fps with .25g bbs using my own chrono that may or may not be completely accurate but this at least shows that it is over 400 fps with .20g
Even with an 8.4v battery this gun cycles at a good speed allowing for very quick and accurate shots.

Overall this is by far the best quality gun that I have picked up and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great DMR.

Pros:
-All wood and metal exteriors look great!
-Extremely sturdy
-Revolutionary gearbox generates more torque with less voltage.
-Great FPS
-Fast rate of fire
-low voltage requirement
-easily adjustable sights
-Heavy and well balanced
-Plenty of instructions for take down and adjustments
-Attention to detail is superb

Cons:
-Slight wobble in Handguard (fixable with sanding)
-Handguard very difficult to open (fixable with sanding)
-Holding rifle too long makes you grow Stalin Mustache and refer to all your friends as "comrades"


Thanks Comrades,
-Spooky
