"I give this gun a 5* rating. Not because it is awesome, but because it is a great value. Also, AM gave me the most superb customer service I could expect. Alright, first, the pros/cons of the gun. I like bad news first, so here you go: The gun is $40. There are no cons, really. However, I bought this gun for my oldest daughter to see if she had any interest in playing airsoft (She is only eight). She took to the gun, and we had a few good days in the garage shooting at targets. Then, after the third day, the gun stopped working right. I tried everything I could think of to early troubleshoot the weapon. It didn't work. I called AM and after a few other tests, and about ten minutes of time, they told me they would ship me a new gun. Phenomenal customer service; above and beyond what I expected. Now for the pros: For a $40 gun, this boasts an impressive RoF. I would put it at around 500 rpm. It doesn't shoot super hard, maybe 250-280 fps with .20's, but it is perfect for a beginner or a young player. It's light, small, and the red dot scope that comes with it is good enough for a new player to feel like they are hitting the target before tearing it off and teaching them how to iron sight. The build is sturdy, and it is a nice looking gun. For an adult, it is a CQB weapon, or, as I told my daughter, a really long pistol. For a child, it is an assault rifle. All in all, I am impressed with both the gun and the service of AM. I hope the replacement gun works well for her for a long time, as I am currently about to order body armor, pads, gloves and a helmet for a future airsoft player."
