"this was my first sniper rifle and its amazing. It's affordable and is very acurate.
magazine holds way more than 20 rounds
blot is easy to pull back
cheek riser is comfortable
not too heavy
if you put a sling on it its a little uncomfortable
trigger gets stuck every once in a while. easy fix just pull it back and let it go again.
"very nice! feeds wonderfully, have used it a few times but last time i couldn't use it cause dummy me forgot that the stock mag was only rated for 20 rounds and not 40 so it over fed into the chamber and would cycle. but taking it apart for a quick fix was very easy. all in all, works great and would get this again if i had too
"I'm quite pleased with it, I bought the full package, bipod and scope. It shot quite consistently, able to hit a tin can at ~50 yards almost every time, with minimal wind granted. Once I got the scope sighted in, it was a dream to shoot.
For being polymer, it doesn't really have any kind of "weak" or flex-y-ness to it, quite sturdy all round.
Only two problems I found with it out-of-box:
One: little lose on the tolerances for the bolt group, can be wiggled more than preferable. However this does not effect accuracy, and is really only noticable when scrutinizing. This was completely removed upon adding some custom o-rings around the bolt.
Two: the glitch in the matrix being if you try to rack the bolt twice, it will feed two BBs into the chamber. Usually is fine, I actually use it sometimes to perform closer shots, as it effectively halves each BBs velocity, meaning that it won't hurt as much at close range. However do NOT try to do it more than twice as it is very likely to jam past two.
Solid weight, feels good in your hands, but not too heavy.
Bipod in package is telescopic, quite sturdy, great quality.
Optic in package is 3-9x40 with a "Fine Duplex Reticle". Great eye relief, crisp, no in-focus blurring.
For those who don't know, 3-9x40 means that it is variable zoom, 3-9 times normal. And the 40 is the diameter of the front most lense, in millimeters.
Also, if you see an optic that is something like this: 4x32 (which is an ACOG optic)
That means it's non variable, 4x zoom, with a 32mm front lense.
Bigger the lense, the more light will be let in. More is NOT always better. The higher the magnification the bigger the lense should be, 30-40mm is good for 4-10x, usually. Of greater than 10x zoom, look for 50mm. If under 4x, look for 20-30.
