(Write a review) "As a long time airsofter and a brand new LMG user, I had my suspicions about trying to find an LMG that worked not only for my wallet but also me as a person. At first I was considering just getting a Shrike since they seemed to be compact and maneuverable enough for me to lug around for a full day's play while also having the option to utilize single fire to accommodate a number of fields' rules. Granted, the price tags on what are really just M4 platforms who have gained a little weight in some areas wasn't all that appealing. After having my eye on what would have probably been LMG's that were way too heavy I settled on getting this one, and I managed to order it right when Evike was having their week to give back to their customers that had just passed so I got this for even more of a better price! The parts of the LMG that have always been plastic still are, make no mistake, but the main body is what used to be metal and I cannot be more thankful that it isn't because I cannot imagine what it must be like for this thing to be even heavier than it already is.
Weighs less than the standard A&K MK46 (according to the description but I believe it)
Still awesome looking
The most important parts are still metal, especially the gearbox
Its an LMG
Quick Change Spring System. Need I say more?
The box mag it comes with, even when it is empty, adds a significant weight to it, could not recommend the smaller 1500 round mag more, color really doesn't matter unless you *have* to make it match.
A few plastic pieces of mine have pretty sharp edges, so those will need to be rounded out or at the very least sanded down so they don't poke so hard.
The rear Iron Sights are un-adjustable so I took them off bc less weight means fun on the field for longer.
The buttstock that comes stock with the gun, coming from an AEG rifleman, is not my cup of tea, there is a plastic sling hoop on the top of the stock that has a tendency to jab your cheek, I plan on replacing this with the para stock in the future to add more compactness
The lid, i guess you can call it, on the pistol grip has a tendency to open at random whenever I am gripping a little low on the pistol grip, not a huge problem considering there is no motor in the pistol grip but just annoying all the same.
Overall, I could not be happier with my purchase, there is a single screw that holds in the front bottom rails that doesn't seem to tighten no matter what I try but the rail already doesn't move at all so it is not much of a complaint. Additionally, I have only had trouble having metal Hi-Cap magazines to fit into my magwell, but that is not much of an issue since all of my mid-caps (KWA and ARES) fit just fine. Can't wait to field this thing. "Very sturdy and well put together LMG. "Very cool looking gun.
Fresh out the box, and new to airsoft impression.
High Rate of Fire
Seems to be reliable
I dont like all the plastic, I wish I would have got the full metal. I don't know what else they could even make plastic to make a lighter (featherweight) version.
The plastic charing handle feels fragile
BIGGEST COMPLAINT -I got the MK46/Black and the CNC lower grip was broke out of the box.
Its supposed to hold the battery but there is no way to mount the grip on the gun without it easily falling off.
I literally had to wrap duck tape (the new gun) around the grip to keep the bottom from falling off....
There is no owner's manual for this model/grip. Read More Reviews Write a Review
