Review: I have used this line of guns for many years and have had no problems with it. In fact my entire team uses them and we love them. They are not great at speedball but will dominate in the woods. There are so many upgrades for this gun its unreal. You can do almost anything with it. If you are a mil-sim player then this is the gun for you. You can switch from sniper to heavy gunner in a matter of minutes. The flipdown feedport is nice when you need to run a squeege down the barrel. It will chop bad paint but we have run 100s' of cases of walmarts cheapest without a problem other than a few breaks here and there.

It can be a pain to disassemble/reassemble for beginers, but once you have done it a few times its easy. Just keep it oiled and it will last.

The stock barrel is good but could be better. I hate how exsposed the hammer is. It is very easy to get dirt into it, but you can put a rocket cock cover on it and your good.

It is a heavy gun but you get used to real quick and it has a better feel than a lot of other guns that lighter. You will not feel like your gonna break it if you use it.
Conclusion: It is a great gun for anyone of any level. Its more at home it the woods than on the speedball course. If you want a low cost of ownership gun that will last I recomend this one. In stock form this thing is hard to beat for durability. I give it a 9/10. Now go get one and get out and play!!!
