(Write a review) "Hope this review helps anyone looking for a cool looking gun. Sorry for the long read....
1. Looks cool
2. Decent stock internals (minus hop-up design)
1. Absolutely worst hop-up design in the history of bad airsoft ideas (see below)...
3. Pricy for what you actually get (gun only)
4. No designated upgradable parts. If you want to upgrade you have to research and do the work yourself. Some custom work required - especially since novritch quit selling his upgrade kit for it.
I would like to start by saying that I bought this gun cause I was looking for something a little different than your normal every day gun - like the VSR-10 or M40 series. To me the review on this gun is pretty accurate. It really does look cool and is mostly sturdy. On sturdy the only real disappointment is the folding stock is kind of wobbly when locked open unless you put a bushing or something there (like thick tape or something). But the gun really is heavy to lug around. Especially for a game.
As for the price, the stock internals and style of gun are not worth the $400+ for the gun. Its worth maybe $300 - and that's a really heavy maybe. Why, you ask? The hop-up and lack of marketable upgrades make it so. Sure there are some parts you can interchange from the VSR-10 line and others...but the problem is you have to find them yourself. As for the hop-up it really is the worst design ever. ARES made the hop-up with a long adjustable screw-key and has to stay in the top, middle of the gun at all times. It sits right in the middle of your scope/optics (totally unrealistic) and obstructs even the top view (if you have iron sights above or below a scope). You can see through a scope, but otherwise it looks stupid and is in the way. Not to mention if you accidentally hit something and bend the key or strip the small screw threads. And there are no replaceable keys that I can find on the market. I took to re-drilling the hop-up adjustment holes and using the striker hop-up knob (with a lot of modifications). That was a lot more work than I bargained for though. ARES seems to have a knack for making cool looking guns; just without good working, game-play functionality.
All in all I give it a 2 out of 5. I would have given it a 1 but the weight and looks have to count for something. If ARES had put a little more thought and effort into this product (and others of theirs...) it would have been worth double the price to me. But they really dropped the ball on a marketable, upgradable, field functioning product. If I had known how much work I would have needed to put into this to make it what I was hoping for I would not have bought it. Again it looks great and feels great. But that's about as good as it gets. Write a Review
