So, for right now this rifle is my main weapon.
It was gifted to me after I survived my first ever paid-match using only a gas pistol that a friend let me borrow for the day (so trust me, I earned this). On Evike.com (after shipping and handling), this gun costs as a little over $200.00---
Just to get the negatives out of the way first, this gun does NOT come with a manual and comes in pieces that must obviously be put together. This gun's mag also has a bad tendency to let BB's get stuck in the chamber from time-to-time, but you will occasionally have that with any gun.
Personally, I am no fan of electric guns...so that to me is just a bother, but, having a ton of rounds is nice.
It's really easy loading the magazine for use, also, this gun is full-metal so it is more durable than its plastic counterparts. The weight is not extreme, and I love the feel of the blowback, makes it all the more realistic. Another nice thing is the fact that the gun leaves a lot of open space to work with mods and other attachments, it is upgradeable which, for me, is a BIG plus.
All-in-all it's a very beautiful gun and I have had a great time using it on the field. I would recommend this gun to anyone, Beginner or Pro.
