"Keep in mind I am an intermediate player and am very careful with my guns. I'll start off by listing te pros. More durable than you think, good fire rate, fair battery, good high cap 300 rnd metal magazine, fair accuracy and good power. I would say the main pro of this weapon is it's power. It has good power for a cheaper gun. This gun performs pretty well. Haven't been disappointed with it once. It has just a few cons though. The stock is not very thick and feels like it could break if poorly used. I use the gun with the stock all the way in for this reason. Last con is the iron sights are awful. Obviously you would probably get a sight anyway but the point is the iron sights are pretty much peep sights and would not do you any good. I put this thing through a little bit of testing and it held up fine. It got rained on a little, I did lots of rolling and running with it and it was durable. One thing to mention is that the small plastic rings for slings break quickly. They are not durable so do not use the sling it comes with. Over all I recommend this gun for the price it's good."
