(Write a review) "Matrix S&T (Smart Team rebrand) Dark Earth Stubby
I have owned a few (3?) airsoft guns but never competed seriously. This gun was purchased for use at the local CQB field (it is almost identical to the model of this gun they loan out) and it chronographs at 350fps with .20g BBs. This was the exact limit for the field.
-Sturdy construction. Polymer is a plus because of weight. If you want a heavy gun we cannot be friends... that gets tiring fast (milsim training purposes not withstanding).
-Quick change spring! What a surprise to see that inside the gearbox. I cannot stress enough how much quick change spring setups simplify all work on gearboxes. If you have not tried it, you should.
-Handles 11.1v lipo without any changes necessary and has yet to explode. Field is semi-auto only so trigger spam is a thing. Caveat: 2s will semi-auto for several mags before becoming a bit warm. 3s (11.1v) gets warm around 400 BB's and "hot" around 800.... this is steady semi-auto with no breaks. Not the intended use case for the design so of course it struggles.
-Cost effective for value gotten: QC spring, CQB legal from the box, handles 3s voltages, sturdy polymer frame, metal gearbox (only 1 ball bearing I saw, but that's 1 more than my Cyma AK has)... not at all a bad deal. That QC spring is worth its weight in gold.
-Stock is a bit cramped for batteries... but I swapped mine out for a fixed stock and that's a non-issue. The buffer tube section stocks fit over is a bit short and could represent a weak point. Will update if I break it somehow... December 2020 so far so good?
-As mentioned the gun begins to heat up on 3s lipo, but this was stress testing and frankly I have yet to make it through a CQB game where I expended the whole high-cap magazine. Most of my time is spent going "where is everyone". Not a good LMG... but did you really buy this to be an LMG???
-Sights are not at all useful if you've got a paintball style mask, but this is true of ALL sights and not really a failure of this gun. Just something to know... low profile mask systems may not experience this problem.
-Amplifier is not easy to remove at all. I have no idea how it comes off. I'm going to just replace the outer barrel entirely and that should solve that. Note you will be forced to do battle with it if you intend to mount tracer/silencer. Obviously, it makes the gun really bloody loud... maybe you don't care though? "The hidden gem of Evike. I have 4 of these guns: the one with the grenade launcher attached, two 5â€ť stubbies with the amplifier and the 8â€ť Umx. All guns shoot fantastic. My son has a krytac, but canâ€™t let go of his dark earth 5â€ť (the ones with the amplifiers are loud as F, but puts the fear of god in a room!). Trigger is amazing, rate of fire is very good. There is very little wrong with these guns if anything at all. For 135-150 dollars, I havenâ€™t bought anything else, there is just no reason to spend more unless you are doing this professionally. "This thing rips. Trigger response is great, solid accuracy, pretty lightweight but yet still feels very sturdy. However, the stock is a little wobbly, and the rof is not the greatest. A great budget gun that makes a fantastic backup to give to a friend. Read More Reviews Write a Review
