"Let me just start off saying that when I ordered this for 500 use, it was supposed to be brand new.
I'm pretty disappointed; when I ordered this, it showed up at my house looking heavily used, with scratches and dents, and small amounts of yellow dust stuff around parts of the gun. It was also completely missing the muzzle device that was supposed to come with it. That being said, it is a pretty good AEG.
For anyone looking for extremely solid externals, this gun has them. The body is extremely rugged, and, although the gun is pretty heavy, it's well balanced so you won't feel it much. The "integrated laser" is functional, but it's very hard to adjust it to go straight. The battery space is large, and without the battery box for the laser, can accommodate batteries up to around 180mm long.
The gearbox is very good, and the trigger response is amazing, even with only a 15/30c 11.1 LiPo. However, the cylinder head is an ARES Tar-21 version, which is proprietary to this gun and the ARES Tar, which disappointed me because I was going to use a Bore-Up cylinder set to compensate for the 670mm inner barrel.
The gun is honestly amazing, but on mine, the brass part if the cylinder head was bent sideways and the motor heated up very fast and had a horrible smell about it. The hopup is ok, but the arm also acts as the hop up nub, and is not the best. The magazines are good quality, and will be able to take a good beating. The spring loaded bipod legs and monopod are very helpful for getting stable shots and are able to be fine-tuned by screwing and unscrewing them.
This gun really is pretty good, but I would highly recommend upgrading the piston head, air nozzle (the stock one has no o ring and creates lots of friction,) hop up assembly, hop up bucking and nub, and inner barrel. The piston is pretty good, with a full rack of steel teeth, and it's made of a hard and lightweight material that should last a long time. If there is any possible way to change the cylinder head, I woul definitely do that, as it's not the best quality, though it should last a while.
-Amazing external build
-Great trigger response
-Truly LiPo ready (11.1)
-Great gearbox with EFCS system
-Locking mock bolt
-670mm stock inner barrel (may be a con for some)
-Spring loaded bipod legs and monopod are highly adjustable
-Balance of the weight is spot on and makes it feel lighter than it actually is
-Mags are great quality and can be cleaned easily. They also feed very smoothly
-Full disassembly of the gun is simple and fast
-Gearbox is extremely easy to work on
-Large battery space
-4 QD sling points and two included QD sling loops
-Most internal parts are v.2 compatible (not the cylinder head)
-The cylinder is pretty good a is a full type, but mine was barely polished at all and had marks from firing
-Strong piston with full steel teeth
-Gearbox set is very good
-Shimming out of the box was pretty good
-QD spring guide
-The pistol grip is extremely ergonomic
-Really cool looking and ergonomic trigger
-Strong, irregular pitch spring out of the box
-Mine arrived used and without the muzzle device
-Laser pointer isn't very good
-Mag changes can take a while to get used to
-Trigger pull is a little long before it fires
-The motor on mine heats up quickly and smells bad
-Stock hop up isn't that good
-Stock bucking is not very good
-Stock inner barrel is 6.05 and brass, and is ok, but not that greatest
-Stock air nozzle has no o ring and doesn't have the best air seal
-AOE will most likely need to be corrected by 3/16", or 1/4" (1/4" with out the sorbo pad that comes on the stock cylinder head)
-QD spring guide has no bearing, and is mostly polycarb, and doesn't seem very strong
Over all, this is an amazing base for a DMR, but be prepared to spend some extra money on aftermarket parts.
"I got this gun a week ago
Best looking Bullpup ever made
Everyone asks what it is and wants to check it out
Shoots far with stock internals (200ft fairly accurately)
Sexy as hell
Great trigger response
You can add a bottom rail with Magpul MOE type rails for an Angled foregrio (helps combat the weight)
BBs Feeds flawlessly
F-ing red laser built in
Quick change spring system, I added a stronger spring now it actually shoots 425fps (what evike says it shoots)
Out of box with .28 bbs it shots about 360-380FPS
not the best accuracy out of the box
About 16 pounds (not for kids) so it’s heavy
Red laser is garbage but still cool.
Upgrading to a tightbore without a flat hop is not a good idea. (Miss fire, bbs jam)
Needs 670mm TB and flat hop to shoot like a laser
After taking it out for a local game I annihilated people! It was an absolute blast! I shot someone about 160 feet away and all I could see was his head. He thought his own team killed him because I was so far. Because it’s heavy You sure feel it in your arms the next day but to me it just feels right.
My favorite airsoft gun I’ve owned and I’ve played for over 10 years. So if you have amazing taste in guns save them Nickels and buy this beauty!
