"Upon receiving this gun I was ecstatic it looked beautiful and had a lot of weight behind it overall great or so I though. Had this gun for about three days test fired beautifully then I took it over to a friends house to get ready for a upcoming tournament and the gun slips and falls no more than 2 feet the whole butt end breaks off shattering the cheap screws holding it in place and subsequently damages the electronics somehow. So I get to the tournament and shortly after the brief on my way to the field the gun wont shoot nor will it ever the gearbox is FUBAR. OF course I cant use my warranty because the orange tip had to be removed due to it pitching bb's downward at a 45 degree angle overall my review is this was garbage and I will buy form a different company. Never even used it for more than 30 minutes straight. "Upon receiving this gun, I was ecstatic to just look at it. It was heavy, realistic and well built. The body is full metal, except for the hand guard, grip and stock. As much as Inloved the looks, there were major issues with mine. First off, mine did not come with a battery and charger. Kind of pointless if there's no airsoft store near my location and I can't use my gun. Second, the bolt gets stuck every time I pull it back. Third, the grip was even looser than the stock. I fixed it easily though by tightening the screw. From what I can see, the CYMA EBR is a great gun for looks, but terrible with some parts of it. I don't know if anyone else has these problems with theirs, but I am just pointing out what is wrong with mine. Overall, I do not highly recommend this gun. Too many issues that I cannot fix. "CYMA M14 RIS EBR
There are several things I would like to mention about this gun.
1: This gun is quite heavy, although not unbearably so. I know quite a few reviewers have remarked upon this already, but it never quite seems to get it across. I ran with this gun for four hours with no sling, and afterwards I was EXHAUSTED.
2: The EBR is almost completely metal, however, the stock and the pistol grip are polymer. This tends to make the gun seem rather front heavy, although it is slightly balanced by the fact that it has battery storage in the crane stock. I would recommend running this gun with a 9.6v battery, due to the fact that the stock battery is an 8.4v and will not maximize the performance of the gun.
3: I, unlike many of the other reviewers HAVE used this gun stock (airsoft lingo translation: without upgrades), and it preforms very well. It has decent range for a stock weapon, and chrono'd in at 360fps (average) wih a maximum deviation of 4fps. This is ideal for a dmr in the making, because constant and dependable power means the bb will constantly and dependably be going to the same distance.
4: I have a few upgrade ideas for experienced and inexperienced airsofters out there.
4a: The first thing that is essential to the making to a dmr is a scope(Available at evike!). It really doesn't matter what kind of scope you have, but I will tell that for your scope mounts, you will need risers to get your scope above the built-in iron sights. Next, I recommend a foregrip and a bipod (yes, both). Also, if you really want to, ou could put on a tactical light, although I really don't see the point in this (it's not like you're going to be using this to clear rooms).
4b: I recommend that next you get an m135 or an m140 spring(both available at evike!), to get a higher fps rating, and ultimately more range.
4c: My next recommendation is a stainless steel 6.03 or 6.02 500-550mm precision inner barrel (once again, available at evike). I do NOT recommend getting a 6.01 precision inner barrel due to the fact that bbs will jam if you fire too fast in semi-automatic. Another alternative, if you want to skip recommendation 4d, you can purchase a "miracle barrel". These barrels will run you pricey, and usually cost between $70 and $80 (sadly, these are unavailable at evike).
4d: If you do take my recommendation for step 4c, you will now have an inner barrel that is sticking out of the end of your gun. To cover this, you will need a barrel extension or mock suppressor. A good lightweight (although still metal), option is the 'spartan doctrine 200mm mock suppressor'.
6: The final and saddening thing you must now do is to remove the full-auto capability of your gun. Sorry guys, putting in a mosfet does NOT count in most fields. this has been a thorn in my side for quite a while. Three and Four-round burst are life when it comes to long-range assault rifles.
That has wrapped it up for my review and suggested upgrades for the CYMA M14 EBR. I hope you found it useful and informative.
