Review: Strengths:

*Speed- It is an electronic, so it shoots as fast as you can pull the trigger (unless your good and can top it out at 13 bps) It also has 3/6 round bursts and full-auto when you feel like really blasting your friends.

*Quality- It is really a Kingman and the blow-back design makes it really reliable, and if something does break, it is relatively inexpensive to fix.

*Milling- although a personal preference, is just down right cool.

*Rarity- You stand out because not many people have them.

Weaknesses:

*Price- this is the biggest complaint that i have, Raven thinks it can sell a blow-back for 300 or even 400 dollars, I would have never gotten this gun because of prize, but i managed to get a deal on it for 265, which is still expensive for a blow-back.

*Stock barrel- Ok, as you should know NO STOCK BARREL IS AS GOOD AS AN AFTER MARKET BARREL.

*Recoil- there are a lot of parts moving around inside, so it kicks somewhat (especially on full-auto at 7 bps)

*Rarity- They can be somewhat hard to find, use the Internet.
Conclusion: Yesterday was the first time i got to use the gun at an open game. I went to Wyldside in Machesney Park Mall (northern Illinois), it is in a mall so it was a small area and there were at least 30 people there (15 on each side). I was impressed at how fast i could shoot the Raven, even with the gravity hopper from my 98 custom. The stock barrel (although still a stock barrel) was actually accurate in the cramp situation. I was able to hit were i was aiming with 3 or 4 shots. Yes the Raven did out shoot my hopper, but i never had a ball break. They allow semi only, so i didn't get to try out the bursts and full-auto on people ( i have tried it out in my backyard a lot, that poor piece of plywood) I was also using C02 and the regulator and expansion chamber did their job admirably.

Overall i would recommend this gun to anyone who can find a deal on it or wants the best blow-back there is.
