Nice airsoft gun. All parts fit together well and no wobbles. Not even wobble in the charging handle/dust cover that I thought was inherent in this price range. Easily worth the $. The Hopup is complete garbage however. It's made of a plastic that does not slide well against itself. Any resistance (like the actual hopup pressing against the bucking) and the gears won't turn. I pulled it and replaced with a higher quality one. While I was there I upgraded the bucking, hopup spacer, and inner barrel (370mm fits fine.) Combined with the Li-Po ready gearbox already in it, this gun is now easily worth 1 1/2 times the total cost. Remember if you go to make a similar upgrade, work in a clean area and keep track of the parts. Remove everything carefully, a lot of it you will need to use again. If you cannot remember what needs to go where, write it down. Not a hard upgrade, takes about a half hour, requires only tools that came in the box plus silicone lube (you really should already have this laying around...)

Pros:
Full metal
Nice graphics (There is some printing that make this clearly airsoft... It's not identical to the real steal. But it is airsoft after all...)
Good fit, solid construction, no wobbles
Li-Po ready
Comes with 9.6v battery
Comes with a very decent 3 point tactical sling

Con:
Figure your going to have to replace the Hopup gears at least and better to do the whole chamber. While your in there change barrel, bucking and spacer (You are looking at about an additional 50 bucks but well worth it.)

Final note on that hopup, I did pull gears off an old trashed gun, sort out the issues and put the whole unit into another gun (the one I stole what I used to fix this gun up) and it works fine.
