"This is a very good weapon, it can take a few days or weeks to get used to with the bull pup config, having one drum mag and the rest of your mags are box is a good idea because when you start a match, having the extra ammo is always good, also with the longer barrel you get more range.


PROS
.Good sights
.Good range
.Good strong Bi-pod

CONS
.Slow firing rate
.Quite long
.Long cleaning time
.Butt plate not enough support

overall a good Weapon, but not for CQC, more suited to forests and fields.

"I’m up and down about this review…
When I received this in the mail I was mad excited and I had a 9 volt battery ready to go. I plugged it in, and let it fire. Low and behold the bb’s flew….nowhere. They lobbed at a short distance. On top of that, just holding down the trigger for a lil bit made the motor smell like it was under stress. It was new and I understood that some hop ups take a while to break in…but after 3 weeks of emptying mags there was no improvement. I sent it away to Evike to be repaired (which apparently takes over a month to repair) and when I called to check up on the status; They told me they couldn’t find anything wrong with the gun is being sent back. I was frustrated because it indeed was not working when I shipped it to them. Anyways, when I got it back the hop up was fine. So I don’t know if they actually did fix it or the hop up suddenly broke itself in. BUT the motor still gives a bad odor when using full auto. So idk if the motor still needs to be broke in or a stronger motor is needed. Which sucks. Well, here is my detailed review:
The performance and feel of this gun (minus the motor ‘issue’ ) is absolutely amazing. The long inner barrel send bb’s flying as far as sniper rifles can reach. They all have a very small grouping so accuracy is great. One of the best guns I’ve ever seen by far. Here is my experience with the gun:

Pros:
-The gun is all metal (except the battery compartment and the handle)
-The front is all steel. Bipod as well
-Sturdy, solid, and nothing rattles
-Very comfortable; prone or not
-Uses M4-M16 mags
-One of the most impressive and awesome performing gun
-Range is mad far
-Shooting at a high firing rate

Cons:
-Uses M4-M16 mags but does not support mag accessories like mag clamps or box mags as other built in ‘features’ get in the way
-Bipod does not lock in the front well at all and falls loose
-Has 19mm top rail so a conversion rail needs to be bought in order to put scopes and such on
-Though the weight is evenly dispersed, its mad heavy and will be tiresome within 20-30min or so. Not recommended for the little ones.
-There’s an awesome ’key’ located inside the handle. This key will be all you need to remove or add features and even disassemble/assemble the gun BUT the compartment bottom falls off and the key falls out VERY EASILY. Look into fastening the bottom and keeping the key separate.
-There’s only one short top rail
-Flash hider is glued on so, unless you want to deal with a heat gun or boiling water (not recommended as its steel and can rust) then what you have is what your sticking with…no silencers or anything
-Battery compartment is not flush with the rest of the design but you can only tell if take a real close look at it. Not really a con at all but…just fyi.

All in all (hopefully the issues were not a manufacturer’s defect but just needed time to break in) the gun is absolutely amazing and will tear the field up. Well worth it.

"obviously none of the people who have written reviews here have ever shot this gun. I will admit that the price is steep but I managed to buy one on sale for $550. I put a 11.1 1900 lipo into it and it shoots about 375 and 18 rounds a second. I will admit that the plastic gear box scared me but looking at it now... the thing is polycarbonate which is used in all kinds of thins due to it's strength. This gear box is actually designed to take more pressure than a standard pot metal box because the gearbox will flex wit pressure but not wear as hard. also, there is no plastic inner barrel! Has a nice weight but if you weigh less than 150 pounds this will get heavy fast. The ONLY thing that I have not like about this gun is the bi-pod. Just like the real one, it is quite loose and so I decided to remove it. The gun also has a spring release which helps reduce wear. I also suggest you only write reviews when you have used the gun or at least have more knowledge than the last two that posted. If you would like a video of the gun to help the purchase. My email is s.pyro@hotmail.com. like I said before the two downsides are price and the bi-pod. Also if you need a li-poly I know a site that sells good 11.1 1900 for only 45 bucks and 11.1 4000 for 65
