"The DBoys Kar98k rifle is an amazing rifle due to it's exceptional quality at a relatively low price. It is a shell fed springer, a very rare action to say the least, and is a very accurate replica. I do have some qualms with it, though (I'll get to them later). The rifle does shoot at about 350-370 fps, though cold weather may lower this number for both spring and gas variants. It's accuracy is noticeably higher than that of most AEGs I've seen, though it is a bit less accurate than what I might expect from a high end sniper's rifle. It does fire; the warning in the description that it is purely for collections is to specify that it is not built for skirmishes. What I expected out of the rifle was a weak, shoddily-built, constantly jamming piece of trash that could not operate as anything other than a non-firing collector's piece. What I found, however, was a marvellously built, smoothly functioning treasure. My first though was that it was a POWERFUL rifle (it certainly felt powerful) that felt solid and durable: indeed, it felt like it could survive skirmishing. After spending a lot more time with the rifle, I could see that, while a bit awkward at times, I worked and shot masterfully; truly it could find a place among the ranks of sniper rifles built for skirmishes, albeit shell fed.
Now, my complaints. I had some trouble with the shells, but I figured out that you could not push a BB all the way into the slot without it getting stuck; you need to let it stay a bit loose (my field kit for this rifle now has a paperclip in case a BB gets stuck). The only other trouble I had was a jam every thirty or so shots and the fact that the rifle does not work very well with five shells in the internal magazine. Otherwise, I had no other trouble, and really no complaints to give. One last tip: the cleaning rod, while only decorative, can be used to open the internal magazine slot. To anyone who purchases this rifle: you have found an amazing and rare weapon at an incredible price, and you will not regret your purchase. Cheers,
