"I just received this gun at about 7 this evening and it was my first bull pup style rifle. The gun shoots phenomenally. The adjustable hop up is extremely easy for people who don't know how to mess with your airsoft rifle to tinker with, children could do the adjustments. The gun shoot spot on, very accurate and very fast as well. If you are looking for a first time airsoft gun this gun would be an amazing airsoft rifle for you. The mag feed is good, the flip up iron sights are good, the hop up is easily accessible, the gun is all around solid. "I've had this gun for a little over a year now, and for $175 it's not a bad gun. I've used it both outdoors and indoors, several thousand rounds, and no maintenance/cleaning/anything and it still works like new. Overall it performs quite well but the design of it just doesn't suit my fancy.
-Takes M4 mags, so if you already have an M4 you can recycle the mags
-Battery compartment fits a 9.6v (8 cell) battery
-Hop up easily accessed by charging handle (also feels great to charge/release the "bolt")
-Very accurate, I've hit people at least 40-50 yards with a couple shots
-Good fps, mine shoots between 350 and 390
-Plastic outer body keeps weight down
-Short, bullpup configuration makes cornering in CQB a breeze
-Looks totally cool
-Crappy sights. The rear sight is a peephole you could barely fit a toothpick through. Luckily they flip down and you can mount an optic
-Limited rail space, only the optic rail and it's barely enough space to fit my NcStar reflex. Also, the rear sight is high and it'll get in your way if you try to put anything big on there.
-Low ROF. On auto the gun cycles pretty fast, maybe 500-600 rpm, but on semi it feels a little slow. The low semi-ROF combined with the relatively long trigger pull may have you feeling disappointed if you play a lot on semi like I do
-VERY back-heavy. Yes, yes, I know it's a bullpup, but if you're buying this keep it in mind. Personally I would rather have an M4 for this reason alone
-Mag release. Because the gun is so back heavy, the people at IWI designed that nice little space between the grip and the receiver to carry the gun. The problem is that the mag release is *right there* - I actually dropped my magazine in the field while carrying the gun. (note- this is not a problem with the airsoft gun specifically, it's a problem with the design of the TAR and something to keep in mind)
-FPS was almost too high for the indoor arena I bought it for (they limit 350). If you want to play indoors with this gun, be prepared to downgrade the internals.
All in all, this gun is a great gun - if it's what you're looking for. It performs fine, feels great, shoots awesome, but the design of the TAR itself makes me wish for an M4. "Owned the gun for around a year and for $175 you're getting a solid machine. This is not a day one review, I've put a few thousand rounds through it and played at multiple fields.
Pros: Nails the big ones
-Easy access to hop up
-Spring decompression system on bolt release switch
-flip up sights
-takes M4 mags and not mag picky
Cons: Bothers me on some little things
-Location of mag release has caused some issues on the field
-Rear pins got kinda loose, never became an issue but bothered me a bit
-somewhat of an awkward gun to hold and use, definitely not the smoothest weapon platform
-stock fire rate could leave some more to be desired
-tight battery space
All in all I would certainly recommend this gun. Had no issues at all with it working and i played in some dusty areas. Read More Reviews Write a Review
