||Just got this for Christmas. First off, I must say that this gun appears smaller in person, and the body seems very sleek (I'm not familiar with the M4 platform, this is my first gun of that type). The gun is replicated to very exact specs, and will look exactly like a real steel if it wasnt for the orange tip.
-FULL METAL (except for handgrip and crane stock)
-Metal is a steel and aluminum mixture (reduces weight i guess)
-RoF that is fast, but not too fast (9.6v battery included)
-Crane stock is good, although the plastic doesn't seem to well.
-Ambidextrious fire selector switch
-Realistic bolt and bolt catch (purpose is to cock back the hop up well, so you can adjust hop.)
-FPS is great out of the box (mid 300's)
-Haven't got a chance to dial in the hop up for accuracy, but judging this is an accurate gun
-Front sight does not "flip up automatically" when pressed as stated in manual, and the front sight has some wobble, about +/- 5 degrees front and back...
-Mags wobble (not too bad, considering that most m4's mags wobble)
-Mine did not come with the sling mounts stated in the manual
-RIS after the upper receiver has the ability to twist to the right, only by 5 degrees CW.
-Fire selector isn't firm, but most aren't.
Overall, this is an excellent gun aside from the cons. It is definately a step up from the lower quality JG guns. This is a good buy, but some parts could be tweaker by the manufacturer to make it an even better rifle. Also, there appears to be realistic trademarks on the right side of the receiver (not sure what the real ones are, but it seems to be :/)
