Well I FINALLY recieved this gun, after ordering it in MAY. (Just got it in Spetember). Although I had to wait 4 months basically before I got this thing, it might have been worth the wait.

First I want everyone to know it is NOT the color in the picture. It is a much darker earth tone tan more like a brown really than a tan. Its ok, I personally like the color, and although I think I might have prefered the lighter tan, its still ok.

Second the trigger pull on this is HORRIBLE, you will need to break it in. Its very heavy and a very long pull. My friend has the full metal matrix so I knew it was going to be a bit heavy, but these are even worse than that. Perhaps just a little breaking it in and it will get better (if so I will update the post). Its not to bad on full auto at about 13-15 rps with a 9.6. I would NOT put a LIPO in this thing because even though its says "lipo" ready it would not stand up to the abuse of a lipo for very long.

In all fairness I guess I could be biased as my main weapon is a KWA sr10 and this was actually purchased as a rental gun, as I am my areas leader and we need rental guns for the OPS we host.

All in all I give it 4 out of 5 for overall price to quality. It shoots mostly straight, the Hop is very adjustable, out of the box it chronos at 380-390 fps with .2g bbs (verified with an Alpha chrony, one of the most reliable on the market). I got it for a pre-order rate that was well worth it, and for a rental gun, I will most likely be picking up at least a few more of these.
