"I've had this gun before; it broke on the first day of use. I didn't do anything extreme; or drop it; or abuse it. Just three games and then it just died. I don't know too much about airsoft gun internals, but I know they shouldn't sound like maracas when shook or shattered plastic smashing against another piece of plastic when you pull the trigger. Its a cheap, and pretty gun... But i wouldn't say reliable
Pros: Cheap, and pretty
Cons: Its as durable as a banana being used as a gold club "I've owned this gun for about 2 years, and I have had soooo many problems with it. First off, the magazine is absolute poop. I had to completely take it apart and put it back together and replace a spring OUT OF THE BOX!! I fixed the magazine and didn't have any problems with it until my friend tried loading it with .12 g bbs. DONT USE .12g BBS!!! One nice point about the gun is that it is electric blowback so if your battery dies and you didn't bring a spare you can use it as a spring gun by using the charging handle. One bad thing is how easily it broke. About halfway through a game my battery died and I forgot to bring a spare, so I had to use the spring. It still shoots well, but it broke after very limited use. It shoots amazingly when it works. I love the folding stock and how light the gun is, but I am afraid of the stock breaking sometimes. The handguard also serves as the battery compartment which is great except for the limited space for a battery. It is also nice that you can easily change it out and get another size or color. Overall I would give it a 3.5 out of 5. Don't get me wrong! I love this gun! It just has some problems. "This gun is a good gun for anyone just getting into airsoft as is is in a lower budget range and is for all intents and purposes a good gun. But my honest opinion is for someone with a larger budget jump up and get the Umerex Elite G36. And as others have said getting a battery bigger than the one that comes with this gun to fit is a pain. But hey, I still think this is a great gun for the price range!!! So have fun! "This gun is very accurate its made out of high quality polymer it has a folding stock witch is very helpful because my brother is 8 years old and the stock is to big for him so he just folds the butt stock, it can be really helpful for younger airsofters. But the down part about this gun is that its really hard to put in the battery [the battery is at the front of the gun with 8.4v battery] plus the the inner barrel is cheap plastic. but everything else about this gun is amazing! [: "This gun is very durable and shoots great. good for indoor and outdoor environments. The folding stock is also nice
It's a sexy gun
The fps and range is amazing
Can change hindsight
Love the mag design
Charging handle is a little flimsy
Kinda hard to get the battery into the gun "I want to make clear that my review is based on EXTERNALS ONLY, as I did not even fire it since I wanted a better-built gun.
Overall the construction of the rifle wasn't right (ABS plastic?), and since I am looking for as much realism as possible, I went with a higher-grade model that hopefully has a higher grade polymer construction that is better and is the same/close as possible to the real thing (I have actually held a real g36c).
Other than the body, there were a couple of things externally that I really didn't care for:
1. Plastic charge handle that felt very flimsy. It's only a matter if time before that breaks.
2. No rubber butt pad on the stock. Once again, I am looking for as much authenticity as possible.
3. The outer barrel is plastic. Maybe that's no big deal, but I wonder how well that'll hold up.
4. The flash hider (plastic) didn't appear to be removable.
Otherwise the gun looked and felt fairly realistic.
I understand now that this gun is considered "entry-grade", so some of these complaints of mine on the externals are simply cost-saving methods used by the manufacture to keep the gun at a lower price...which might be no problem to you if you are not as concerned with authenticity and/or on a tight budget. "Hk G36c
Good for CQB
Durable abs plastic
Good fps for indoor games
Comes with a 400rd hi-cap
Nice folding stock
Mag can break if dropped a lot
Charging handle can break
Small battery space
Its a good starter gun, great for indoor CQB, and the folding stock is very nice. I'm a little disappointed that the charging handle broke on my gun. Overall good gun for any beginner. "Like all of the reviews before this--I would say this is a decent starter gun. I got this because I was on a budget and I wanted a G36. When first received it, it appeared that Evike had sent me a boneyard one (one that didn't work) in a beaten up box. So I sent it back and they sent me a new one, however when I received the new one I was not disappointed!
-Great for CQB
-Good gearbox and motor
-Very easy to disassemble
-It's a G36!
-Plastic top rail
-Charging handle will break if you play around with it to much
-Cramped battery space--biggest con
Other than that it is a great gun for a good price that I enjoy using. However, if you are looking for a intermediate to advanced gun, I would keep looking. As for the incident with the boneyard G36; that is more of a con for the Evike staff. But with that aside--Great gun! "when i first got this gun, i liked it. it didn't have a great rate of fire, and it only got worse. after about six months, the trigger response was almost four seconds and i had to pull almost to the point of snapping the trigger and the charging handle broke.
good iron sights
slow trigger response
battery is a pain
overall, it's an ok starter gun. i would only recommend this if you have a starter budget of 150 and you only want a G36 "First I just wanted to say this is a good overall gun, BUT there are some flaws. First of all they did a not so good grease job in the gearbox. So if you are comfortable enough to take apart the gun, you should wipe some of the grease off and use something better. First the gun was 325 fps, then after I remove some grease it rose up to 360 fps!!! Also the hop up is decent but you should still change it. But the think I don't like about this gun is the barrel. It kinda bad so I do recommend to get a new one, like an Angel Custom 250mm 6..01 barrel. But most stock guns have crappy barrels anyway. But the motor is actually really good!!! FYI IT DOES COME WITH A BATTERY, but I recommenced to get a 9.6 butterfly battery. So if you want to get decent gun then upgrade it eventually, this is for you but if you want a good gun from the start, I would say to go with the KWA g36c.
-Decent Hop up
-Does comes with side rails
-Gearbox is over grease
Thats really it "Ive had this gun for about 4 months, and i can say that i really like it. It holds up in a CQB environment, but there are some issues with it, not major issues, just some annoyances.
-Strong externals, it doesn't feel like its gonna break on me
-shoots around 330 fps with .20's (great for a CQB field)
-Good rail space on the top
-Metal tri rails on the front handguard
-no wobble on the stock, it feels really solid
- Ambidextrous fire selector, and mag release
- decent ROF with an 8.4 small type
- GREAT FOR CQB
-Plastic outer barrel assembly
-Plastic flash hider that is glued on, NO THREADS UNDER IT
-No rubberized butt plate on the stock
- VERY TIGHT BATTERY SPACE
- Plastic top rail
- Charging handle feels really weak and feels like it will break easily
- I have had some problems with it stopping firing on semi and i need to go to full auto and fire a few shots to fix it, could just be me but that was a con for me
OVERALL a great aeg for beginners, i would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for something different from the very common M4, and for anyone who has a tight budget or wants something cheap that holds up well. "Just yesterday I had an airsoft war at my local church with this gun and it preformed very well I am not an airsoft expert but I can tell you that this gun shot accurately from 100 to 125 yards. The gun sounds very cool and it is completely ambidextrous. the hop-up is the only con because it is a little hard to change.
You look cool
fold in stock
feels great in your hands
almost pin-point accuracy
and the mag does not miss feed
hop-up is difficult to adjust Displaying
