    My Lonex M4 should be here Wednesday. I'd like to hear suggestions for things to review, since I know there's a lot of interest in this line of AEGs.

    Planned items:
    - Chrono check with multiple brands and weights of BB's
    - Feed check with multiple brands and types of mags
    - Range and accuracy check
    - RoF check with several LiPo and NiMH batteries
    - Lots of pretty pictures with my DSLR

    Long-term and internals will be in another few weeks.

    If you're doing a review. Do a segment where you detail the OTB experience, and then another one after 10K rounds in the same video. If there are any problems, it should show up before you reach 10k.

    I'm not sure if I'll get through 10k today, but I'll try my best :D

    First video will be *initial* impressions and performance. Later we'll do a technical review to see how it's wearing in.

    Got some FPS and RPS chronoing done, still working through different batteries, BBs, and mags.

    ETA: Initial impression: I'd run it as a primary with the addition of nothing but a precision barrel and a computer controlled MOSFET unit.

    So.. All Lonex internals huh? So we basically know it's good- the only problems that could arise are tuning or external issues really. If the externals are good I probably have to pick one up.

    Finished taping video, editing tonight, rendering and posting tomorrow.
    - Flash Mag, rail covers, detachable carry handle rear sight, and LE stock are included
    - Inner barrel is not the aftermarket Lonex, but is a nice brass version
    - FPS/ROF, and externals are excellent
