"Stop thinking about it and just do it, . . .
This wasn't my first airsoft gun, or even my third one. However, I wish it would have been my first.
Don't be scared off by the non-metal full body. This is still built very well. I admit, I bought this gun for the internals. Though, just how it is right out of the box, it has performed way better than my more expensive stock guns. This thing is truly a laser.
Accuracy: I have guns with tight bore barrels in them that this shoots just as accurate as them.
Internals: With the reinforced gear box and the built in mosfet you can run a 11.1! When you're trying to get that extra advantage, it's the little things that add up. With the added fire rate you get from this gun being able to run an 11.1 inside of it, coupled with the accuracy = laser!
Light weight: I wasn't sure how I would respond to the lighter weight, as I typically like the full metal feel. Let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised. I sometimes run with a riot shield. If I choose to, and have a couple times, I still can with this gun. I still feel confident with my shots only one handing this weapon. Did I tell you about the accuracy yet??
Additionally with the lighter build I am able to equip different attachments to this gun that I previously haven't with my heavier ones. I added a double clip for my 460 round flash magazines and it shoots like a dream. If you think about it, adding nearly a 1000 rounds with two full metal magazines can add quite a bit of weight to a load out. But with this gun, it honestly doesn't matter. I honestly don't really have a use for my rig anymore, lol.
Price: Whether you're buying this gun as a project for the internals or needing a gun that can truly compete with the 500 dollar price range ones. This is the one for you. It has a mosfet, it has a electric switch trigger for quicker response. It has everything those guns come with. I really was skeptical about how good this gun would be for the price. Let me be one of the many that tell you this. For what you get, this is truly the best deal out there currently.
The first time I took this out to our buddy's field where we play, I easily had my best outing.
Cons: It's a little smaller than I thought it would be. I bought the 8" variance. If you want something closer to the real size feel, go with the 10". However, with mine being as small as it is, it fits nicely in my backpack so easier travelling.
Honestly no others come to mind. Yes, it isn't full metal, but if other guns sacrificed externals for better internals like this gun did, I would buy them all. Again, even if you drop it, it'll hold up. It's a very strong polymer. They use these for rental guns at arenas out in California. One, it means they hold up well. Additionally, it means they perform well. Arenas aren't going to give you a gun that doesn't perform at least in the same realm as other guns people bring in from the outside. They want you to come back to spend more money.
I even had other friends use this gun for a couple matches to ensure the performance wasn't all in my head. They all did well with it.
You're getting this far into my review and haven't clicked cart / check out?!?!?!?!? What are you waiting for??????
"I’ve been playing airsoft for almost 7 years and I’ll say one thing. This gun is good straight out of the box. I bought the tan RIS version (wanted to get the black one but oh well.)
I’ll just go ahead and list the pros and cons.
-Very sturdy and well made gun, doesn’t rattle when you shake it and there are no loose parts.
-The ris is full metal AND it is an mk18 mod 1 style ris which I’m a big fan of.
-Lots of space to put on the ris but it’s all down to personal preference.
- Shoots really hard, for me it shot around 390 FPS.
- Comes with a good metal magazine.
-The body itself is plastic (externals) but it’s not a cheap plastic, this can also be a pro because it makes the gun lighter but can be a con if the user wants a metal body, this part is all down to personal preference. Also no rusting.
-Nice flip up sights, very clear to see through
-Short rail perfect for cqb which this gun excels in, people complain that the gun is too short but it’s actually supposed to be short considering it’s an mk18. Though this gun is good for outdoor play too.
-Price is excellent considering how good the gun is.
-Really good, I mean really good trigger pull.
-Plastic body (more down to reference because I think this is a pro)
-FPS is too high for cqb play but can be lowered.
-The stock man, it’s just not the best. It’s dooable but should be replaced by like a magpul pts stock or any stock of your choice. With the stock, it’s been poorly cut so it’s a— meh? It’s possible just mine.
- I don’t like the pistol grip too but that’s up to personal choice. I just fine the grip not that comfortable without gloves. It’s best to replace it too.
- This might be just my gun but the front flip sight can be a little hard to flip up but it’s not a big issue.
-At longer ranges it can be a little unaccurate but isn’t noticeable much.
Overall I highly recommend this gun to both new and experienced players because it’s very fun, very affordable and really worth it especially for the price. This gun is certainly more better than a combat machine in so many ways. This gun is also able to be easily upgraded like most M4s.
My suggestions are only to use a Lipo which I recommend on any Aeg, get a better pistol grip and stock when you get the chance and that’s pretty much it. And also make the gun look sexy, it might become your main gun. (If you want more information, just dm me on my Instagram Communist.succ).
"Comes with one wind up magazine, vertical foregrip, RIS, and crane stock
Plastic body, only has a little wiggle at the buttstock. Feels solid for the price.
