"To start off; I bought this rifle while in Taiwan.slight changes were that it was the 16" barrel "13 Hours" edition. 3 months later I give this fully derailed review.
The externals are fare superior than any gun out there with all the HK trades. Mechanical wise it's the complete opposite; there was a massive air leak being caused due to 1/8" gap between the hop up and gearbox anytime a mag is loaded. This resulted in low fps and 175ft max range. This can be resolved through calling umerex/elite force or the prowin mod.

Things you will want to replace is the piston, gearbox and install a mosfet. Also switch to full type cylinder.
The first month my gearbox cracked, piston shredded, and the contacts arched. Thankfully it's compatible with m4/m16 except for the gearbox, cutoff lever and, wiring harness. Also thanks to Evike for having everything I need instock.

In order to make this a phenomenal rifle to out perform, you'll need to modify the Echo1/VFC XCR gearbox to fit, inatall a gate nano ssr mosfet, and full type cylinder, and have the hop up gap resolved.

My results was a 225ft +/-10ft edefective range with a prowin and flat hop with prommy purple bucking on a ghopped stock barrel.
The internals installed were the xcr split gearbox, full cylinder, gate nano ssr mosfet, matrix 115 spring, and a we tech piston. After these changes the rifle was no longer a paper weight and shot as beautiful as it looks. These results were done using .30g Jag Precision bb.

Overall Pros:
Externals
Compatibilty with m4/m16 parts
Accuracy/range after upgrades
It's a VFC
Easy disassembly

Overall Cons:
Price
Price spent on upgrades
Stock internal quality
Can be heavy
Mags are expensive
Midcaps only hold 51 rounds.

All in all I would buy again despite the frustrations; it was a fun build that shoots amazing. It's also unique and a great dmr platform if you have the time and funding.

"Really great solid gun. I love it. I use it mostly for mid-long range. It shoots through heavy brush no problem.

Pros
-Solid full metal quality build
-High rof
-High fps
-Long range
-Heavy and realistic (weight may be a con for some but I like it)
-Trademarks are realistic, also has its own serial number
-Stock has a large battery compartment that could fit a variety of batteries
-Lots of rail space
-Iron sights are nice (I've always liked HK iron sights)
-Full metal gearbox
-Fairly easy field stripping

Cons
-Gearbox is complex if you want to upgrade it
-My first one had weak contact points I don't know if that was just a rare manufacturing issue or what but my second one is just fine

Overall great gun, worth it so if you're thinking of getting it just do it.

"Ok, had this gun for a while now and its time for a review.

pros:
sturdy build
high rate of fire
high fps(430 Fps can be a con for some)
can be upgraded(uses version 2.2 gearbox so take that in mind)
good quality build material
mid-cap mags have "dummy rounds"
heavy(could be a con for some)
aggressive look
easy to use(especially if you use m4/m16s)
tons of rail space
can be converted to a dmr or sniper easily
unique mags
you will be the only one on your team with this gun(I've yet to see someone else with this gun on the field that I play on)

cons:
gearbox broke easily
trigger mech broke easily too(maybe bad luck I don't know)
weight can be a problem(especially if you run around for 5 hours plus hours with this thing)
replacing the gearbox once it brakes
internals not the best quality
had to sink a lot of money and man hours just to get it to work again
you don't have one


And for the people that said that this gun cant be upgraded or easily upgraded your wrong. I've upgraded this gun with the Matrix Godzilla Super High Torque Performance Airsoft AEG Motor, Modify Quantum Piston with Titanim Coated Metal Teeth, and a Lonex Aluminum Mushroom Type Silent Piston Head. I've also put the Matrix Military Grade 4x32 Range Estimating Rifle Scope and Spartan Doctrine Lightweight 40mm Airsoft Mock Silencer / Barrel Extension - (245mm) on this gun. I've also rewired it to tune down the rate of fire(made it a dmr build).
But if you take care of this gun it will take care of you.
