"Just received this and I have already put 100 rounds through it. Gas consumption is very good, but would be better if it was warmer. The silver finish and slotted slotted slide make for a real eye catcher. The blow back is crisp with no hang ups during the cycle. I do suggest this as a beginners gun simply because there aren't alot of upgrades for it.
Do make sure to spray some silicon oil the contact parts of the magazine (gas fill pin & where the hammer strikes)."
