This gun is very durable and shoots great. Even though this gun does not shoot the hardest the accuracy makes up for it. When you get your hop up dialed in with this gun it shoots right what you are aiming for. I have not had any problems with this weapon. I got this weapon sometime around April and it has always worked well. This weapon is great for field action or CQB because of the retractable stock. The one thing I did not like about this weapon is how G&G made the mag well because of how bad the mag shakes while in there but that is something i fixed with a little piece of black duct tape. This gun is a great beginner gun or a gun for someone that has been playing and just want something that won't break the bank but is still a great and durable gun.
