Designed and built by the Magpul design team in approximately 4 months as an experiment in firearms design, the Masada is an evolution of proven technologies in a lightweight package optimized for mass production. Transition from the M16 weapon series is facilitated with similar control placement and function of many critical controls thus requiring minimal re-training. Currently the real Magpul Masada is known as the Bushmaster Adaptive Combat Rifle (ACR). Inspired by the original Magpul concept design, A&K accurately recreates the likeliness of the innovative weapons system.Features:

"I have had it for about an year, it is a solid gun. It is great and I still have it stock. trigger response and auto are slow.
"Ive had this gun for over 3 years and its been terrific! It shoots pretty hot out of the box but I put a m120 spring in it and it shoots 420fps with .2g. Its my go to rifle and a lot bulkier and slicker than a m4.
Shoots hot and accurate
accepts almsot any m4 magazine
easy to change barrels
lots of rail space
lots of upgrades available
the charging handle is nearly broke on mine so watch out for that
tapplet plate broke on mine after it was dropped
slow rate of fire (700rpm)
poor iron sights
some upgrades or replacement parts are hard to get ( stock, air nozzle, hand guard, reciever)
"tl;dr- This isn't a BAD gun, but you pay for the cool factor more than quality. I'd recommend a more common rifle model unless you just HAVE to have an ACR.
This was my first real AEG, and I used it for about 2.5 years before it developed problems I couldn't fix and I replaced it with a CYMA CM-040D AK-74. Specifically, the hopup started having issues after I replaced the inner barrel, and eventually started double-feeding almost every shot. I shelved it as a prop after reseating the barrel and replacing the bucking didn't fix it.
In summary, this gun feels and looks pretty amazing. It's metal where it should be, heavy enough to feel realistic, and will probably be the coolest looking gun on the field. It actually performs reasonably well stock, with decent accuracy and FPS and a rate of fire that isn't too terrible compared to other guns in the price range. It's reasonably easy to take apart once you find a decent instructional video. It fed from every M4 magazine I put in it. I was very happy with this gun until I decided to take it apart and mess with it. The single biggest problem with this gun, in my opinion, is that it uses a proprietary hopup. I see why, too: the engineers wanted it to field strip like a real ACR, which couldn't be done with an M4 hopup. That didn't make it any less of a pain when I accidentally bent the C-clip when replacing the inner barrel, after which the gun became nothing but trouble. It wasn't just the hopup either: the ambidextrous fire selectors have a bit of a tendency to fall off if the retention screw works loose, and if the selector gears somehow get out of alignment, you're going to have a hard time getting them straight again. The battery compartment is in the handguard, and you have to take a pin out to access it. I lived in fear of dropping that pin in the field. The hole for mine was also too small, and I had to take a file to my brand new rifle to get the handguard on. The battery compartment is tight, and the largest battery that will fit is a 9.6V 1600mAh small or butterfly type.
The included sights are terrible, I replaced mine with some real steel sights from a M&P15-22. There is nothing resembling a forward sling mount, meaning you'll have to stick something on the MOE slots on the handguard and hope it doesn't interfere with the battery. The inner barrel is a pain to get realigned correctly if you have to take it out.
Looks absolutely awesome
Decent stock performance (accuracy, range, FPS, ROF)
Collapsible and folding stock
Functional charging handle and bolt catch
Ambidextrous fire selector, bolt catch, and mag release
Uses M4 mags
Proprietary plastic hopup (although it is clear, which is cool)
Tight battery compartment
Bad iron sights
More difficult to work on than it should be
Lack of non-standard replacement parts
The cost keeps it from being a good entry-level gun, and the lack of upgrade potential keeps it from being high-end
Verdict: I wouldn't buy it again. This gun is better at looking cool than it is at anything else. It's not that it's terrible, it's that there are better options for the ~$200 price tag. I'd recommend either a G&P M4 or M16 variant, which will be better in almost every way for a similar price. If you do buy this gun, for the love of everything good in this world don't take it apart unless it's already broken or if you know what you're doing.
