||I ordered this gun on Monday, June 6 with standard ground shipping. In a couple of hours I recieved an email stating that my package was at UPS already, waiting to be delivered. The next day, it was sent out. I recieved it on Monday, June 14th. The shipping experience was great :)
This is my first airsoft gun, and I'm really excited about the quality.
The first thing I noticed was the weight -- AWESOME. It's not ridiculously heavy, but it's enough to make it so that if I flinch the gun doesn't fly up in the air and mess up my aim. A well balanced gun is a lot easier to aim steadily -- that's this gun.
Second good thing -- it's mostly metal externally (aside from the grip, which is sturdy, good plastic AKA not shiny). In the section where the battery goes, you can see some internal plastic pieces, with metal casings around them.
Third -- the stick battery slides deep into the gun, so that the wires don't get in the way when you're trying to put the cover back on. This is exciting, because I'll probably be able to quickly swap batteries in field if needs be.
After charging the battery, I tried out the gun. It has off, full auto, and semi auto, in that order from the top to the bottom. On full auto, I was able to cut a pool noodle in half from about twenty feet away. That was with about a full mag (600 rounds, according to Evike). There were no jams or anything but smooth flows.
On semi-auto, I took it to an accuracy test. I was able to effectively shoot trees between 100 and 150 feet away, with the first shot down the sights. They're alligned well, and you can easily raise or drop them depending on the distance that you are shooting at.
On full-auto it is slightly less accurate at long distances, but much more effective. What's better? 1/1 bbs hitting your target in three seconds or 5/10 bbs hitting the target in one second? :B
Structurally, the gun is great -- so is the mag. They're both very sturdy.
P.S. I recieved an unexpected speed loader and set of poker cards ^_^
