Ok being infantry myself I needed a marker that could be put throught the same abuse I put my M-4 through! Without falling to pieces.... After many a days reading reviews, and articles I found an Alpha black tacticle edition on ebay with full gear for $150
As soon as i opened it up and got it all together i was surprised!!!! First thing I noticed which I should have before was that it is much more closely related to an M16... Which I hate, but with the adjustable stock Its not too far off an M4 so I could deal lol!
The coating reminds me of spray in bed liner for trucks! which was a huge plus! I also loved the weight!!! I dont care how many people say its too heavy... Its not its very light, and fells solid! Then again im used to doing military presses with an M4 for hours at a time!! haha
It shoots superb for a stock barrel/marker. Now its not flatline good but again I said for a stock barrel.
I recommend this marker to any of my buddies looking for the same mil/sim feel, since we cant really shoot each other with our actual M4s...... haha
I recommend this marker to anyone looking for a rugged marker with a great military feel!
