$320.00

I've had this gun for about a month now and I have to say its a pretty nice gun. The gun performs great straight out of the box and they weren't kidding when they said VFC made the internals, the gearbox sounds wonderful compared to some of my friends JG m4s whining gears. I also looked up what it would cost to buy a case like the one you get with this gun and its about 80 dollars, evike offers the 1 cent promo for 2 extra mags on top of the 2 mags you get for the gun and you end up with a skirmish ready gun if you have the butterfly/crane stock battery for it. The feel and texture of the gun is absolutely wonderful, the grip is truly smaller than all other aeg grips and the platinum echo1 logo looks pretty sweet on the bottom receiver. Overall the gun is an amazing steal for 305 if you add up all the things that you get with it.

PROS
consistently great fps
VFC internals
amazing to hold compared to many other m4 variants
locking bolt is a huge plus when on the field and needing to change your hopup
great iron sights

CONS
mags are just a tiny touch loose in the mag well, (not many companies have mastered perfect mag wells yet.)
top receiver is attached to bottom receiver only by the front receiver pin and the top receiver wobbles just a touch but not that noticeable
crane stock wobbles a touch but I like it because it conforms to my shoulder a lil better than a stiff crane stock would

CONCLUSION
sure there are a few tiny things that aren't extremely perfect on it but I'm not complaining at all because when I'm on the field I know that I have a reliable gun in my hands and that's all that matters to me.
