"Great gun, overall. The internals haven't failed on me, and I've been fielding it every weekend for the last two or three months. Great response on the trigger, and solid accuracy. The plastic is good, but you'll need some Krazy Kola to glue some poorly-done union points. The scope is the only bad deal in this package, no eye relief, mine couldn't be adjusted, and frankly unsuitable if you like to do Rifleman. Maybe would work in a Designated Marksman role. Got some mid caps for it, and it fed a little weird on Semi auto, lot's of double-feeds, but is operating normally now. 100% recommended, just get another sight and a riser rail. "Love this gun. Maybe a bit biased but I find almost nothing wrong with it.
The 2 magazines work great. Zero misfires. Scope needs sighting but I never use it. Shoots about 340 fps. I play cqb so its perfect for me.
Only thing is I don't like the green paint. Easily fixed.
Great gun and as an added bonus, I'm the only one that has it. Many compliments.
Highly recommended. "I just received this gun this week and I can say I am already in love with it.
The weight and feel of it are perfect
the adjustable stock came out once (friend being a little rough with it) but went right back in with no negative effects
the scope is great (not as perfectly tuned as some people say, but easy enough to adjust)
accurate as hell (100+ feet out still hitting every shot)
consistent even at full auto (see above)
hop-up easy to access
selector snaps nicely to firing modes (i haven't seen any of the problem other people have with it falling off yet)
a friend of mine has had a spring SM8 (i don't know what company exactly) and for as long as I've known him, the handle on top (where the iron sights are) has been snapped, so i was worried that might happen to mine. after a few days of handling mine, i don't see that being a problem any time soon. the whole gun is made of a very durable plastic. Overall, if you are looking at this gun now and wondering if you should get it, the answer is YES! Read More Reviews Write a Review

SRC SM8 Airsoft AEG Rifle w/ Two Hi-Cap Mags - OD
Originally designed under the US Army's Objective Individual Combat Weapon (OICW) program; the XM8 was a part of a complete weapon system which was then later separated from the program to be a stand alone weapon. The XM8 was a weapons concept the US Army was hoping to replace the standard M4 / M16 weapons platforms for the standard infantry rifle in favor of a much more modular and lightweight space age design. The goal was for a cheaper, lighter, and easier to maintain all-in-one weapons platform that can be easily re-configured into multiple variations to fill various roles on the battlefield from a short barreled PDW to a bipod equipped support weapon.
SRC now makes one of the best XM8 AEG's on the market with their new gen.2 Tokyo Marui type Version 3 reinforced gearbox. The new generation gearbox features 8mm bushings, reinforced steel gears, and a metal hop-up chamber. The rifle's receiver, front, and rear assembly are all constructed out of high impact reinforced polymers to cut down on weight and the adjustable stock helps keep a compact profile. The rifle itself has completely ambidextrous controls to cater to both left and right handed shooters. A 1.5x scope is integrated to the rifles upper receiver and carrying handle with a set of flip up back up iron sights.
