"Full Review on my Youtube Channel:

I got this gun in the April Fool's Box of Awesomeness and I gotta say, this is the most unique gun i have.
its pretty good for the price and performs well. my main issues are with the externals

fair price point
easy to operate due to it being similar to M4 controls
heavy (could be CON)
metal sling point mounts
tons of battery storage
easy to remove orange tip

all polymer, feels kinda cheap.
sounds like a cheap aeg
sometimes gets jammed but switching between positions usually clears it up
flimsy mag, also does not accept the G&G 120rd midcaps nor the Evike BAMF mags :(

OVERALL it is a good gun for the price, it functions as it should but the ergonomics are NOT it. it feels like you are squeezing on right angles all over the gun. to me at least

"WOW!!! I ordered this gun as I'm a noob and didn't want to spend an exuberant amount of money if I decide to wuss out. I'm sooooo glad I did. The design is like no other gun I have seen. Its weight is decent and seems very sturdy. The hop up is a tiny difficult to get open if you don't have longer finger nails, but still not a problem. I went to my local Airsoft Arena and had it tested on their FPS Meter ( I'm sorry I don't know the name exactly, again I'm an older dude noob) and was shooting at 396.8 FPS-370.1 FPS So for me I have to learn how to lower my FPS to 355 or below. Sad me... A gun that's too powerful. LOL The gun is Epic Looking, Sturdy, has easy access to Battery Compartment. I Love this Rifle so much I don't want to give it but 1 star so others wont buy one and destroy me with theirs. Seriously.... For me... I'd say to definably have one in your collection at least. I mean its a great gun in my opinion. Buy one if you can. Also... I live in Colorado. The shipping was fast and had quality packaging for safety of the delivered product.

"Definitely different from the typical M4s and AKs you see out in the field, got a lot of attention from people asking what it is. Great price for a start gun with decent performance or for someone that wants a cool looking gun to upgrade. Easy battery access for a quick change out if it dies, recommend butterfly type batteries, fits easier. You can tell most of the weight is at the motor and gearbox area, the rest of the gun feels light. Kinda hard to open the dust cover for the hop-up when you don't have nails, even harder with gloves, but that's a me problem.

•Unique design
•Quick battery access
•Great starter gun
•Easily upgradable
•Kinda light

•Difficult to take apart to upgrade
•Might have trouble opening the dust cover
•Slightly below average performance (but can upgrade)

"Played it today good mid range weapon. Will make a note for you if the trigger feels jammed change battery this weapon will let you know the trigger on mine got stuck then fired slow so I grabbed another battery and up and going. Also good to have a low power weapon as well cuz mine was able to use that battery while this monster used fresh.

Good weight when slung feels like a regular rifle. Enough that you feel it there but not fatiguing.
Good mid range fighter
Fair fire rate.
M4 mags do work. Note high caps with wheel feed better than mids also drums make sure it's is the right length or shape otherwise it will not go in buddy loaned drum from a vector M4 style but did not fit due to shape

Too heavy for kids to use all day
Would like sling points but will say slung min through the stock giving me a single point did work fine just would like a defined point.
May of overlooked or may be just first time noticing a weapon that does this. Trigger feels jammed at low power thought it broke scared the hell out of me til it fired like a slug then realized what happened phew.

All in all good weapon outfitted mine with a bipod and gonna get a scope as well to see how far she truly hits. May tinker with internals then again may not. Overall out the box does well for mid to close range can hold its own in an outdoor field well and if in a building collapse the stock makes it okay for tight spots. Honestly though for that close carry a pistol or knife though this is a rifle not a normal close encounter weapon it shoots over 300 fps and will hurt like hell.

"The gun is actully very good, consistent amd a fun gun to use. Havnt had problems with the mags or any other m4 mags all work for this gun. The battery compartment has alot of room under the front grip.

"Very good gun with great construction

"Got this AEG because is different than what everyone has in my local Airsoft field and no matter what people said this future type AEG is built to last and very accurate, my lady has never used an airsoft rifle and she was able to zero it in 2 minutes with a zeroing target that simulates
50 meters I'vee been using since I was in the military. I zero the rifle to me right after her. CSI knows what there doing, hope they can produce more future Airsoft Rifles soon. Finally it's a bit heavier them my Matrix M4 GBB because of all the internal metal parts, will be using it as a sniper Rifle already got a scope & getting a Hive suppressor/extension not that it needs it.

For the the price you get a great Rifle.
Full length with extending butt stock.
Easy to hop up or down.
Strong Polymer composite shell.
Can run 7.4V lipo to 9.6V lipo Batteries no problem at all.
Easy to remove orange Metal flash hider.
Metal Trigger and gear box.

Not for younger kids because of the weight made cause them fatigue.
Nic-Cap Batteries run it a bit softer and less accurate.
Needs a mosfet for quicker trigger response.

"Purchased as a starter for my son and now is my primary.

This gun has some heft! doesn't sound like a big deal, but after carrying it around for six or seven hours it might lead to some fatigue.

Me I don't mind it and prefer something with a little more weight to it. I currently have a front hand grip and red dot attached. Looks and handles perfectly.

being able to "gator" the weapon to put the battery in is a silent treat. My son is running an M4A1 and every now and again we are on the hunt in the tight quarters of the M4A1 battery compartment.

I have the 150 round mag and the 300 round. Not only does the mag keep with the cool lines of this gun, but they are easily identifiable on the field. No worry about someone grabbing my mag on the field.

for a unique conversation piece and a solid starter weapon I highly recommend this. Eventually i am going to be playing with the springs and other internals to see just what she is capable of.

"Love the gun! Looks cool and functions properly.

"this is a very nice gun, it has a lot of hex screws holding the body together and i had to take the whole thing apart to change the inner barrel and hop up. both stock hop up and inner barel are metal but I put in my prowin hopup (the blue one) and a angel customes sus304 6.01mm tightbore barrel that is 494mm long. with the stock fully retracted, its shorter than my socom X47. and i had to put a barrel extension and a mock suppressor on the XR-5 to cover the angel customes inner barrel. and it is shorter than my X47 which the X47 has no barrel extention at all, just a krytac flash hider (the 5 dollar one). the XR-5 is great for a Designated Battle Rifle for both CQB and LONG RANG. im just happy with this product, the XR-5 i have is a literal cqb sniper that isnt bulpup. 494mm is a hella long inner barrel that is also 6.01mm in diameter so its MEGA accurate and has amazing distance and groupings. its a good affordable gun even if you dont want to change the internals so i recommend this to any one who wants a new tech project (like me), or a straight up beginners gun for airsofters who are looking into something fixable and fully upgrade able internally.

"I love this gun been using it for several games now droped it in a pond still shoots just as good as when I got it no feeding problems yet range is pretty good it has 14mm threaded outer barrel in case you want to put a silencer on it very overall extremely good gun for the price and to be honest I think its alittle under priced

"Great rifle, looks really awesome and performs well for the price

- Uses M4 and M16 magazines (so no need to get new ones)
- Great accuracy
- FPS rating descent
- a lot of space for addons
- extendable stock
- The body is polymer so its pretty rugged
- of course looks
- shorter than a M16 making better suited for CQB
- Price

- again descent FPS rating
- unlike many M4s and M16s no room to mount a bayonet
- Very heavy
- The magazine it comes with is hi-cap (but doesn't mean the mag is a bad one)
- not much room for a sling

"It handles good, quieter than all my m4. Has a nice look, my tracer unit works nicely with it, wish it came with a battery and another mag but that's fine I have those. The only thing I absolutely HATE about it is the fact that the safety is more square and not rounded because I cut my thumb on the thing, and its just a tad shorter than I would like. On my m4 I can go between everything easy. With this one I have to actually move my hand for it, its not bad I can touch it but it would be more convenient if it was rounded and 1/6 of an inch longer. Other than that this thing fires fast with my 9.6 battery and .2s! Its quiet, looks cool(got trooper white) and others I know are going to be buying one. Oh I almost forgot I wish the part that slides for the battery had a screw to hold it in place because it can slide off completely
