Welll, I've had this gun for around 6 months now. I am an active member in the French Foreign Legion and I'm Impressed that this weapon is 90% similar to the FAMAS F1. A few pieces have been changed because it's an airsoft, but it works beautifully.
It didn't get the listed FPS on the box, even with 0.12's. It got around 400 to 410 with those, and around 380 to 390 with 0.20s. I replaced the battery from an 8.4v to a 9.6v mini. Bumped my ROF from around 650 to 800. Bumped my FPS up to 420 with 0.20 and 0.23 BBs, and with 0.12's I finally get that listed box FPS and exceed it even.
The mag isn't awkward as some say, there is an optic rail mount you can purchase at AMS, it also accepts 60 round Marui magazines from their FAMAS. You can even mount a side mounted optic scope for M14s or AR-15 carrying handle scopes as it has both a side mounting screw hole and bottom for the mounting rail for the FAMAS.
The iron's are wonderful as they are fully adjustable and it goes where you're aiming at. I've had accuracy out to 225 feet. But that's about where it stops. By it's factory defaults its good for indoor and outdoor play. If you adjust it, its better for outdoor as it likely wouldn't be allow in most indoor fields.
It doesn't get a lot of customization, but this gun is so straight forward it doesn't need much. It has an under slung rail for a foregrip/flashlight/laser/etc. But it has the built in bipod for prone or stationary shooting and it's a beauty.
The only downside is for some optics because they sit high, you need to adjust them to shoot accurately. I've got an m14/ar-15 carry handle mount on mine which are angled specifically down the rail so there was little to no adjustment needed to make it accurate.
Parts are a little pricy, but for the dollar value, this gun performs well outside it's price range. This could be a 250 to 300 dollar gun easily, but for the price you get a lot of gun, and a lot of fun.
