"For starters, I bought this gun purely so I could be Jäger from Rainbow Six Siege and because I've never used an AR-style platform before. If that's what you're trying to do, maybe find something else or just get the HK416 CQB. Anyway, this gun is pretty good, I think. A lot of positivity with relatively low negativity. I've poured around 400 dollars into this baby and I'm telling you, it's werf (any RussianBadger fans out there?).
Externals: I mean it's VFC. They're pretty top notch. Can't really find any fault with them.
Internals: Lemme tell you up front that I haven't the slightest clue about airsoft internals, but either way, I had mine upgraded with a flathop, new motor, and piston. Only thing I can say is what the tech told me which was that VFC pistons are apparently pretty underwhelming.
Full metal, add to realism but could be a con
Perfect for CQB and decent for field
Lots of rails and rail space
Pretty accurate out to 120 feet
Comes with a really nice magazine, fully trademarked (but it's actually more of a showpiece, I'll talk about it in cons)
It's rather unique among M4s and AKs
Trademarks all day baby
Unsure about whether stock is better opened out or closed, closed feels better against face but out feels sturdier
Trademarks do eventually wear off and fade away, moreso if you touch them directly with your hands
Rear ironsights are kinda janky but I think front sights are a bit more effective anyway
Good God the battery was probably my biggest issue while I was buying this gun, I had no idea what would fit in the included PEQ box, so I'll provide a link to a good battery that fits nicely in it (http://www.evike.com/products/36324)
Even with the included magazine, this gun is pretty picky on what mags it wants to take and how it takes them in
Probably my current biggest issue is the underbarrel rail: the lip at the front of the gun essentially blocks any grip that slides onto rails, for example, I have a Magpul AFG that is unable to fit onto the gun because of the lip; in short, have a grip that can shimmy into place or can screw out and back in
In conclusion, if you want to cosplay Jäger, go for it my dude, if you're looking at this through a purely airsoft and efficiency filter, I'd still say do it. Get past the few minor cons of this gun and enjoy it. It's been on sale since I wanna say July and even until now it still is. I'm beginning to wonder whether or not it's going to be discontinued or something. I suppose that's incentive enough to get this gun as soon as you have the money for it.
"Is a very good gun if someone has problem about the battery box, you can buy a PTS Enhanced Polymer Foregrip to put the battery in it so you don't need to worry about the ugly PEQ battery box.
"This has to be the best stock gun I've ever owned. Right out of the box, I was able to accurately shoot well across my field and hit targets. It's very lightweight and the stock makes it easy to transition to an offhand for peeking or other stance. The best feature is this gun's speed. Everything about it is fast; The fire rate, the maneuverability of it. It all seems like it'd be perfect for speedsoft, but I use it outdoors and for MilSim and this gun excels in that as well. It has excellent range out of the box and is very easy to sight in and adjust the hop-up.
Full-Metal (Strong and Durable)
Easy to switch hands with
Easy to peek corners with
The stock is really cool and more durable than you'd think
Really BA looking
Makes you feel like Jager from Rainbow Six
The battery box being on the outside is a problem for me, since the wires are on the outside, and you need a tool to be able to modify it for an internal battery storage, but I recommend you put the PEQ-15 on the side, you can easily tuck the wires under the box and out of harm's way
So, the only con is the battery placement, but that does not hinder it's performance. The gun is amazing to shoot and play with and the battery is all up to personal preference.
When you first get this gun, be sure to tighten the screw that holds in the rail system. Not a big thing, but it stops the rail from rattling. A 5 second fix.
I highly recommend this gun to everybody looking for a unique, yet powerful and reliable gun!
