    It's a challenge kit. However I know challenge kits to go for about...$50-$70 below a complete rifle. Soo.....the fact it's $200, is there something I'm missing? As far as I see it: you get all the parts needed to put it together. Once you do, you got a working GBBR for a fraction of the price of say...a LM4. (assuming you got WA mags already).

    Am I reading this right?

    That's most likely it. No way a G&P WOC could go for $200. A WOC-X sounds much more believable. I should email Evike and see if that's true.

    It is made of a WOC-X with the aluminium lower internals and other non-steel metals throughout the other internals. That being said, it's still a good deal and much better than any of those cheap Chinese clone GBBRs out there (WELL, AGM, JG, etc.). I would put it more on the level of a King Arms. It still isn't horrible quality, but it's not the super high end WOC we've all come to know and love. It may or may not require a bit of dremeling/modification to get working and then you'll probably need to replace the trigger sear after a few thousand rounds and then it'll be a slow downhill roll.

    Still the best deal you'll get on a GBBR for $200. Not to mention, I tell everyone to upgrade to the RA-Tech BCG anyways because it's awesome and almost everyone I know who seriously runs GBBRs has upgraded the trigger group anyways. Plus the whole idea that you assembled the thing ground up is a really cool thing.

    Buy kit $200 (%20 off = $180 shipped)

    Prowin V2 magazine $70 shipped

    dremel/shave firing block $skills (most important step****)

    now you got yourself a reliable/highly upgradable platform for $250 all together
    (assuming you have a dremel, sandpaper, file, etc)

    like some people figured out already, you can only use 1 coupon code from evike at a time.

    free shipping = $200

    20% off = $180 shipped

    I emailed their Sales
    and this is what I got.

    This is what I got afterward from Tech

    At first, I was dismissive. But then I learned that G&P packages the Challenge kits in "WOK" or "WOC" boxes. I don't know if that makes a difference.

    As an owner of one of the Challenge Kits, I would like to disagree with Mr. Tech, they are WOC-X, aluminium internals through and through. Unless they've changed them as of late, they're aluminium. Look up threads on the kits, everyone says they're cast aluminium, take their word, not just mine.

    I've had Evike customer service not be spot on before, not to take a shot at the company, but I really don't trust them much. WOC has taken off on its own, almost as its own brand rather than line, so when he calls it a WOC it's kind of hard to pinpoint exactly what he means. The prices you quoted were from other distributors, Evike also being one doesn't affect the price like that.

    As far as WOK, that's what the kits are called I believe, though they use the same parts as a WOC-X. WOC stands for Western Arms Official Copy, I would guess WOK was instituted not following the original meaning of the abbreviation after WOC took off on its own, though the K I would assume stands for "kit".

    The $200 kits are most definitely aluminum. Evike staff are a hit or miss when it comes to GBBR's

    Hi. Evike lies. Just in general, they are money hungry, bloodthirsty satan worshipping sellers of Airsoft goods.
