"When I first opened this rifle up, I noticed that not only did the rifle and the twenty-five round magazine come in it, but also a 90 round speed loader and a sling were in the package. Also, it came with rubber butt plates. The assembly was very quick, it took about 30 seconds. The gun is about two and a half feet long, which is very realistic. It weighs approximately seven pounds, which is not too bad. The magazine holds about twenty five rounds, a suitable amount in a war, considering the fire rate. There is a rail on the top and the bottom, they are both the same width, but a different length. It is mostly metal, including the internal mechanism and the outer barrel, which includes the trigger and trigger guard (don't be fooled, though, DE makes their trigger guards out of pot metal, which is very cheap. It will break eventually, depending on the amount you use it. It can be replaced or fixed for about 60 U.S. Dollars) Anyways, this gun seemed to be inaccurate at first, but then it became more accurate. 35 gram BB's work the best with this gun, but mostly anything higher than .25 will work. The gun clocks in at roughly 450 feet per second with .25 gram BB's. The sling is bad, just toss it. But the speed loader is actually nice, and will refill two extra magazines. The stock is a very sturdy polymer. Unless you start smashing the stock on trees, then it shouldn't break. The best scopes on this gun are either diamond tactical scopes or BSA Air gun scopes. The bolt has a textured grip so that your hands won't slip on the bolt, which happens. It also has a textured hand guard and grip, for keeping the gun steady. The orange tip is barely noticeable at range, which helps with stealth. At range, this gun is also very quiet at shooting, the bolt pull and all. This gun can hit at possible ranges of 600 feet, which requires lots of test shots and adjusting. I would say the effective range is under 300 feet. Don't let the price underestimate you, it is worth it. Honestly, you could upgrade the spring and buy a nice scope, and with this small investment (which isn't required, but puts icing on the cake) you can make your gun own. Overall, if you want that first sniper or just one to mess with or one to upgrade and make awesome, then this gun is for you!"
