I got this out of a mystery box and I have to say I'm impressed. Like the other review said, there is a noticeable seam along the gun, but it is only visible if you are within 5 feet of it. The top rail also wiggles a bit, but is not so bad as to where I'm upset. Also, mine has a small burr mark from molding on the underside of the gun, but that isn't visible and I'm pretty sure it is not on every model that gets out.

Other than that, this gun is amazing. Mine only has the CQB range, and I would not use it for field gaming, but a new right bore barrel will do wonders on this gun. Also, mine is shooting a bit hot at 370 fps, and with the new barrel performs better than any other gun in this price range, especially a Combat Machine, (which I have and have compared it to head to head). I am able to fit a 9.6 volt nunchuk battery in it, although it haut fits. This gun also has a functioning bolt catch and decocker, something I just stumbled upon and very pleased with. However, if you have a full face mask the iron sights are too low, but I don't use them because I don't like the rear sight at all, but that's just a personal preference. It is a simple fix if you have a red dot, or I took an M4 rear sight and with that on the iron sights are useable. Also want to mention it has full Tavor trade marks.

Pros:
Best out of any other gun in price range
Very nicely textured metal body
Accurate
Quick-change spring system
Functioning bolt catch and spring decompresser
Can fit a 9.6 nunchuk
Full trades
You get so much more than what you pay for with the internals

Cons:
Shoots hotter than 350 (not really a con just not what I was expecting)
For field, range leaves a lot to be desired
Wobbly top rail/piece
Bad rear sight
Seam
Small molding mark underneath
You get what you pay for with the body
