||To start this off. #1 advice I can give you to keep this gun in great shape:
***USE 8.4V MAX*** This is coming from and expert. Why? The gearbox can't handle a 9.6v for a long time and it burns it out and not ony that, but the gun fires too fast for the mag to keep up. I own two 8.4v Small Type 1600 batteries and they work perfectly.
The gun itself is definetly nicely built. The wood is not orangish like in the pictures. It's a nice brown that can easily be restained to your liking. The orange tip was sort of a pain to take off.The blowback is a cool feature, but I suggest after some use, disable the blowback as it will increase the performance of the gun. It has a good weight to it. Sure its a little heavy, but if it bothers you, you really need to start working out ;)
USE 8.4v 1600 small batteries!!!
Hop up is easy to adjust
Heft: It really isn't bad at all as its compressed into a small sized package. Hit the gym if its too heavy.
Great mag quality, space, and peformance
Orange tip is a pain to take off but can come off
Distance is okay not amazing.
Blowback can break the gun overtime, but its easily disabled so this isnt a big deal.
Now people say well this is a crappy version of Ares and Hexagon is better. Well I havent gotten my hands on a Hexagon PPSH as they went out of business and you can only buy one from Hong Kong at a ridiculous price. But it looks as if the gun itself is better than the S&T. But, the S&T being $215 and your able to get 2 batteries, a smart charger, and a PPSH for $250 including the use of coupons? Its a great deal. This gun has performed up to its price and if you have an interest in WWII or just want something besides the everyday M4 and M16, then go with the S&T PPSH.
