"It is cheap plastic, obvious from first touch. It is loud when it fires and has a bad spray paint job on the orange tip. Not the best quality for not the best price. BUT, it doesn't shoot as bad as cracked up to. It shoots (just look at the specs in description) bout 280 fps, and it goes perfectly straight, but for no known reason literally curves down after 30ft until it is going straight down, vertical. Don't worry about this one, it's okay for $5, but not $30."
