||I got this gun a few days ago, and when I got it I was impressed with the external build. But like any real player knows, a gun can only be judged by the internals. I ran into the same problem that the old Classic Army M15s had, after firing about 200 rounds, the gearbox locked up. But it was an easy fix. All I had to do was disassemble the gearbox and place everything in the right position. I put it back together, and it's firing great now. I've fired about 1,000 rounds out of it on an 11.1v LiPoly, and it's holding up great. After firing the 1,000rnds I took the gearbox apart again, and there were no signs of any wear and tear on anything.
Performance wise, this gun outperforms most high end AEGs I've used. It by far, out performs the G&P M4 I used. And the KWA M4 doesn't even shoot this far or this fast. With a Matrix 11.1v LiPoly, I'm getting 28 rounds per second ROF, and the bbs are flying straight for over 250 feet (Matrix .23g). When I bought the gun, I thought I needed to buy a new hopup to get good range...but the hopup it has is already amazing. It shoots much farther than the UTG MK96 did, AND it's more accurate. So, basically, if you put a scope on here, you already have a DMR. The velocity is actually very high, especially for an M100 spring. Most M100s shoot around 300fps, but since the air compression is so great, I get an average of 390fps with a .23g bb. So, you're getting the velocity of an M115 spring, with the ROF of an M100.
This gun is overall amazing. I would expect it to cost at least $400. At $230, Evike is cutting you an AMAZING deal. The range, accuracy, and power of this gun...combined with the ROF...make it the best M4 I've ever had.
Thick/heavy metal receivers
Laser Etched markings
Polymer handguard/pistol grip
No wobble at all
Standard Rails don't fit on here, the front sight is too close to the Delta ring, so the rails are too long to go into the disc to hold it in place. So you have to stick with the standard handguard. Which isn't really a big con, but I like to be tactical.
I highly recommend this gun to experienced players. Best M4 I've ever owned.
