"G&G is basically the Nissan of airsoft, this being the GTR of them all.
From premium exteriors to gucci internals, this gun wont dissapoint you, considering the high price.
-The two I just said earlier.
-Heavy weight (i like realism)
-Damn lasers with .28 from 150ft.
-Everyone on the field is going to ask you about the gun, is freacking beautiful and exotic.
-Reliable and durable.
-G2 gearbox with mag cut-off.
-Mag compatibility (krytac, Pts, Ics, CYMA, etc)
-Insane trigger response.
-Non-picattiny handguard = C-clamps FTW.
-the CARS auto-dropping mag can be disabled (dumb hate).
-hop up is nice.
-Quick change spring
-Almost every part is propietary.
-the battery space is damn tight (buffer tube)
-This thing eats batterys, a Lipo 7.4 1500 Mah literally lasts around two 30 minute matches, shooting normally.
-Non retractable e stock
-You don have it haha.
So yeah, its worth the $550... every penny.
And it has no upgrades, I might change the inner barrel soon for a Prometheus 6.03 or .02 for even more accuracy.
"I've had my rifle for around 3 months now, have put over 5,000 rds through this gun, and am absolutely in love with it. I've kept everything stock in my rifle and I run either .28's or .30's, and I have no issues hitting man-sized targets out to 200-225ft. I love my gun, albeit it being on the heavy side. I have no problems fitting a Valken Tactical 11.1v 1200mah battery in the tube as well, without ruining the battery connection or wires.
Looks; people have and continue to stop and ask questions about the rifle, and it's appearance.
Out of the box equipment; The adapter, fuse, MOSFET, and V2 Ver. 2 gearbox are all phenomenal. The gearbox is much quieter out of the box than the ~20 other rifles we have at our disposal to use. Double-flared magazine well makes reloading no problem whatsoever.
Build; No gaps or obvious seams. No wobble, or rattle without the mag in. Period. The weight is perfect for me, but can be a bit of a con for some other people. It weighs 8lbs dry.
Mag fitment/compatibility; these mags I own, all of which fit and feed perfectly:
Highcaps- Ares Amoeba, G&G, Classic Army, Krytac, PTS EPM, and some other no-brand mags.
Midcaps- Hexmag, Cobalt Stock mag, PTS EPM, KWA MS120/120c, and G&P.
Rifle length; as someone who's 5"9', the length of the rifle, even without an adjustable buttstock, is perfect. I wouldn't add anything other than maybe a different muzzle break that's different from the black and orange one mine came with.
Weight; The weight may be a bit much for some others to lug around all day. It's ~8lbs dry, so keep that in mind.
Price; There's no escaping the fact that this is a $550 dollar toy gun, so take that as you will.
Mag wobble; While the double-flared magwell is great for mag changes, it also makes it so there's mag wobble in every direction, though it's really not bad at all. KWA MS120's and the Ares Amoeba Highcaps are the best fitting for the sake of reducing mag wobble, while still dropping mags freely.
Muzzle break; Mine didn't come with the blue aluminum muzzle break shown in the pictures. While it sucks, it's nothing worth skipping over in terms of considering this rifle.
Conclusion: This, in the end, is still an airsoft gun that's half a thousand dollars, and that sure isn't cheap. Although, it's incredibly well engineered, it's made from very high quality materials, the fitment is incredible, it's very durable, authentic, an excellent overall performer that would make for a great DMR build. Huge thumbs up to G&G for releasing this incredible rifle. The only other gripe I have is the Cobalt Kinetics magazines are roughly $30 last I saw, but I wasn't expecting them to be cheap either. People have complained and rained on the Auto Drop feature, calling it a joke and hating on it, yet all of it is unnecessary hatred, as it can be easily disabled with no tools. All in all, amazing work G&G. Huge respects.
"I recently ordered one of these... TL;DR version of my thoughts is this: Great gun, but USE THE RECOMMENDED LIPO BATTERY.
Externals are stupidly nice, especially for an airsoft AR replica. Think LCT-tier solid. Controls are ambidextrous, and the mag release has an extended paddle which is highly beneficial.
Internally, this is a high-end G&G AEG, which is very good.
I ultimately had to return, as none of my own stick batteries fit. I do not use LiPo given my poor track record in keeping safe with them, and no Titan battery will fit. Nice gun, but not worth my house burning down.
