I don't normally write reviews, but this one felt necessary:

I received this gun just a few days ago and right out of the box it was amazing. It hit hard and the ROF wasn't too bad. The gun felt solid and looked just plain mean; however, the hi-cap that came with it was cheap and fed terribly. I recommend a mid-cap mag for this gun. Unfortunately, the charging handle became stiff and locked open and the entire front assembly (ext. barrel, handguard, front sight) became loose. I tightened it myself and it felt like it was good to go. I took it out to fire a couple clips, but the entire barrel shook in full auto, causing a dramatic decrease in accuracy. This is the SECOND defective gun i have bought from Evike. In terms of gear and ammo, Evike has been perfect with excellent service, great prices, and fast shipping; however, I don't think I'll be buying another gun from them. Maybe it's just my luck. If you were to get one that has no issues, this would make an awesome starter gun. I'd recommend at least a 9.6v battery and mid-cap magazines.

PROs:
-Nice look
-Great price
-Awesome fps
-Lightweight and sturdy (for the most part)
-Cross between ABS and Metal, awesome
-Great starter gun (if it works)

CONs:
-Mag that comes with it is bad
-Wobbly handguard (not too bad)
-Stock seems kind of shaky, and the screw holding the handle to adjust it came off and doesn't tighten
-ROF isn't great, its okay for some people (Get a better motor)
-Mine seems defective, the whole front end shakes and seems like it'll come off.

Overall: More PROs than CONs, but the CONs are all major parts whereas the PROs are just little perks.
Personally, I wouldn't buy it again, but maybe it'll work out better for someone else.
