Products Used:
Tippmann M4 carry handle
Marker Setup: Tippmann X-7, x-36 carry handle, x-35 collapsable stock, x-36 foregrip, X-7 response trigger, TectT mods (squishy paddles, lightning rod, vortex mod), Tac red dot laser, Eotech holo aimpoint w./removable magnifyer, OpsGear G-36 barrel, CA remote line
Strengths: None.
Weaknesses: VERY cheap plastic, doesn't work with the hopper.
Review: Don't buy this. It might LOOK great when you see pics of it on a marker, but it's a HUGE headache. Let's see why.
Construction.....the plastic is very cheap, very brittle. It's from China, what do you expect. When I assembled it, I tightened the screws, and not very tightly at that. One of the internal screw mounts snapped off. Literally snapped. The plastic is that brittle. No, I did not over-tighten. I stop when the give stops. It's just cheaply made. The colour in the construction doesn't match the marker body well. It LOOKS like cheap plastic, which it is.
Mounting.....it's supposed to be able to be used with the stock hopper. What they don't tell you in the product write up is that you ABSOLUTELY HAVE to remove the handle EVERY TIME you remove your hopper. You simply CANNOT remove the hopper without removing this handle. The only alternative is to get the A5 hopper adapter to pull the hopper away from the main body of the marker to give it room to turn, which defeats the low profile of the hopper. The RIS rails are a joke. They're supposed to be standard 20mm rails. BS. They're about 1.5MM too wide. You'd think...this shouldn't make a big difference, right? Guess what? It does. If it's not correct and doesn't sit straight the sight you're mounting won't sit properly. Which then means if you use the sight, you can't hit crap. The front end doesn't have screws to tighten it to sit securely. You simply mount it to the rail on the G-36 foregrip. And, that's the ONLY foregrip it will mount to. Don't even think of mounting it on the stock foregrip, the rails are WAY too big. You'd have to eitehr cut your rails down to fit, or try to cut the handle to fit (which would more than likely cause it to break).
Stock sights.....crap. Period. Don't even think of using these things, 'cause they're so poorly set up that you'd miss your target and probably hit the guy behind you. This handle comes with the standard G-36 peep through the handle. Now, it seems like a cool idea. But, again they scrimped and screwed it up. I'd say buy a good aimpoint or some such, but the rails are so screwed up it wouldn't sit properly then you'd be int he same boat...but with more money invested.
Looks.....this is about the only area the handle doesn't fail in. It looks decent. But, only decent. They scrimped again. It's a reasonable facsimile of a G-36 carry handle, but that's it.
Conclusion: In conclusion, don't buy this. Buy a good airsoft g-36 carry handle and mod it, 'cause this one is a piece of crap. Sorry Tippmann, I normally love your gear but this is a piece of crap.
