3 Customer Reviews "Overall a great gun. I was really excited to receive this weapon and preformed beautifully for a while. Something messed up with the internals of the gun and it stopped working. Ive came to the conclusion that it is a faulty model so I returned it and got a new one.
-Very accurate to about 250ft
-Great quality scope that comes with it
-Very high quality metal
-~1200 bb's per minute (Could be a pro or con)
-Need a flat head to access the battery compartment
-Battery compartment is so big that the battery moves around alot
-Needs a deans to tamiya converter
-Little on the heavy side, but for the performance, the weight doesn't matter
In the end a really great gun with some small flaws, but despite those its really awesome and worth the money "UPDATE: The gun was sent back for replacement at NO EXTRA COST. Thanks Evike :)
Overall, I would give it a 4/5. It would deserve higher if it weren't for the insanely slow RMA process (took a month before I got my gun back). I realized I couldn't edit my previous review, so here's a new one.
-Accurate (even with the stock barrel)
-Quiet (a bit quieter than a G&G CM)
-Magazines are realistic. One of my friends who has served in 'nam told me that the G&P M14 mags look more realistic than the CYMA flat black one.
-Everything is STEEL. It's solid as a rock. I could probably bash this against a tree and it still won't break.
-Comes with a RDS... which isn't bad at all. Very much usable.
-TM compatible which makes after market parts readily available.
-HEAVY! Even I have trouble running around with this. Weighs a good 9-10 lbs with scope and battery
-Small battery space. It could barely fit a large 3300 mAh plus the deans to tamiya connector. I would highly advise to get a stick type, not a PEQ configuration (like I did) as it is a tight fit.
-ROF is a bit too high. Sometimes my midcaps misfeed due to the high ROF.
-FPS a tad too high for CQB. Mine was shooting in the high 380s with 0.23g.
-Stock plastic is a bit flimsy... Not as solid as my KWA MP7.
-LITTLE RAIL SPACE! I couldn't fit my scope on (too large), so I had to stick to the RDS that came with it. If you want attachments (like a Magpul AFG), I would recommend just drilling holes in the stock and installing Magpul rails.
It might look like there are more cons than pros, but trust me, I was not disappointed when I took it to the field. With the RDS calibrated, I was easily picking off enemies at 150+ feet. As long as you have a 2 point sling, the weight shouldn't bother you that much. You won't regret this M14! "This is a very heavy rifle and measures approx. 40 inches (shorter than the standard size M14). Evike had my G&P M14 shipped to my door in 1 day despite choosing a 3 day shipping, not to mention that the 19lb package came from the West Coast to the East Coast! However, I was greatly discouraged when I saw that my gun was pretty much "refurbished". Hate to say it, but many external screws were missing and the parts were misaligned. Obviously, it has evidence of being disassembled prior to shipping and I wouldn't really consider it BNIB. I'll see what I can do about it but spending $60 worth of shipping and the pain of filing a RMA for just a few screws? Eh... No thanks. It was just disappointing that Evike would still sell products that are in such condition.
-M120 HS Motor, so excellent ROF at a field ready spring (M120)
-Comes with a steel, unpainted flash hider
-Comes with a RDS, which was pretty nice. Note that a scope WILL NOT FIT without a scope mount; it will fit, but you won't be able to use it due to the increased eye relief distance)
-Heavy weight (can be a con)
-Wired to deans (faster trigger response)
-For me, the orange tip wasn't even glued on at all. I removed it by unscrewing it with my hand.
-TM COMPATIBLE! Uses all TM M14 aftermarket parts.
-Missing screws and misaligned parts... Either blame G&P for poor QC or just Evike fiddling with the gun before sending it to me. My bolt/charging handle is extremely loose and has missing screws, so it could pretty much fall off any second if I'm not careful. There were scratches along the metal and stripped screws...
-G&P M14 magazines look horrendous! Came in a light matte black finish with tons of oil rubbed all over it. Even my CYMA M14 mags look better.
-Adjustable stock isn't really adjustable at all. If you remove the layers of the buttpad, there will be insanely long screws jutting out from the stock.
Bottom line: I assume that the G&P M14 would be very nice if I've gotten a better one. Seems that either I got a lemon, or something happened in the warehouse... However, just keep in mind that the QC for G&P products will still be much better than chinese clones, so the better bet is to chip in more money and buy this! Write a Review
