"I remember when I was younger getting a KTO1 Marine battlekit and this was one of the iconic weapons I had. I got it off of Amazon, but naturally it was too good and went out of stock. I was going to purchase off of Airsoft megastore but when I found the M307F available on Evike as a similar model to the KTO1 battlekit I had once, I purchased it to try it out. After a few test runs, here's what I would say about it.
I think the M3O7F, or DE PDW rifle - however you want to call it - is inferior to the marine spring rifle. It is not the same springer. It does offer decent accuracy (once you learn how to shoot from the sights), but the precision is not very good as some bullets will veer off course. In a fight between AEGs and snipers, this gun will get left in the dust.
However, as a starter rifle, it is extremely cheap, useful, and durable for the price. It is highly recommended for people just jumping into airsoft. It is compact, lightweight, and the charging handle is very easy for 12 year olds to prime. It is also an ambidextrous cocking system, which makes it easier for anyone to play (I am left handed).
The reason most people do not buy this weapon is because the magazines are very hard to come by, and AEGs are just generally better. But I like using springers and snipers because I don't have to worry about charging anything. This weapon will be terribly inaccurate and appear to be a failure if you attempt to use .12 bbs. Use .20 grams BBs or better. It offers decent accuracy and flip up front and rear sights. If you're out on the field enough, though, you'll already know that.
-Hop up, folding stock, mid-cap magazine, and flip up front and rear sights all work as intended.
-Durable cheap starting weapon that is better than most starting springers (unless if -someone knows of a better model)
-Offers decent accuracy (once you learn how to shoot from the sights) right out of the box
-Recommended for beginners because of its cheap price of $30.
-Compact and lightweight
-Charging handle is generally very easy for 12 year olds to prime.
-Uses an ambidextrous cocking system similar to M4s or M16s, which makes it easier for anyone to use (I am left handed and I can use it easily).
-Best results if using .20 grams BBs or better.
-Precision is not very good as some bullets will veer off course.
-Hop up system may need adjusted depending on play style.
-In a fight between AEGs and snipers, this gun will get left in the dust.
-The reason most people do not buy this weapon is because the magazines are very hard to come by (I have yet to find a compatible magazine!).
-AEGs are just generally better.
I think I got everything. This comes with no grip or dot sights, you will need to purchase those separately.
Good luck on the field!
