"I got mine on sale for $70 almost 2 months ago, I haven't fielded it, but definitely put a good 1000+ bbs through it. It has worked fine while shooting, besides the hi cap magazine never feeding the last 20-30 shots, but with a full mag it feeds perfectly. It does shoot hard, not as hard as some 400 fps Cyma aks, but wayyyyyy faster, I put a Vb power 8.4v. And this is probably one of the fastest shooting Airsoft rifles for less than $100 (on sale) My biggest complaints are the adjustable sights and selector switch loosened up significantly rather soon. Also my front sight is a little loose, it only moves like less than a centimeter left/right if force is put on it. (Super glue is an easy fix besides taking the sight apart) The stock did wobble a big because it use to fit a bit loose where it locked in place, Some tape around the lock area definitely made it fit more snug, no wobble at all. Great stock once fixed, I love it. I believe the stock battery is a JG Works 1100mah (it had NO writing on it, just all black cover) Anywys the feel is amazing! The pistol grip is extremely nice, a lot of great feeling metal parts, and even the small amount of plastic feels great. Definitely worth my $70, therefore any minor cons don't even bother me, I'd recommend this gun not only to beginners but to the more "advance" players who hate JG, You're definitely getting your bang for your buck with this purchase "
