"UPDATE: still love the gun, but has problems now. gearbox got completely jammed with dust and dirt after few months of disuse, had to take apart the entire frickin gearbox to fix it. FML, anybody else hate doin that?
Still a great gun, most AEGs look like just variations on the same design, but AKs are just bosses, in a class of their own. I mean, they should have two sections in the store: AEGs and AKs haha. but seriously, this is the only good thing to ever come out of Russia! looks incredible, shoots hard and accurate (about the only gun that ive felt hurt worse was when i shot myself in the hand from about 1inch away)
Overall, great gun. everyone else has listed pros and cons, so just go with theirs; i won't list my own. It does have a few problems, but not many- the instructions dont make very much sense, common for asian-made guns. Also, the front sight adjuster is not included. Obvious;y, dont use cheap bbs in strong guns. they work, but risky and poor results"
