"Ordered this thing after my birthday for the base price $275. Took a bit longer than I'd have liked to arrive, but I didnt buy express shipping. The gun's box looks nice with Beretta trademarks and is VERY well-made; the gun and magazine were snug inside it, so I still keep it in the box today. Keep in mind if you just buy the gun itself IT DOES NOT COME WITH A BATTERY! I have my own 9.6v 2200 mAh that I used with it.
Gun's quality is amazing. It IS made of polymer, so it's technically plastic, albeit very, VERY strong plastic. Inner barrel is full metal and easily removable with a small button that you push down on both sides of the gun. Stock is foldable and contains the battery, making it very short and good for CQB if the FPS limit is met (mine is in the upper 300s to lower 400s). Battery wires are fed through the stock hinges so it is fully functionable when folded!
Iron sights are usable, but i highly recommend a reflex or low-magnification sight. Gun also takes standard M4 STANAG magazines, so if you own some sort of G&G or Umarex M4 and dont want to buy new mags this is perfect! There's a small rail-esque thing under the barrel where a grenade launcher would go in real life, however it does NOT fit foregrips such as mine. This is one of the downsides in my opinion, though Elite Force may be coming out with a GLX160 to attach to its underbarrel. My only other complaint is that the battery compartment in the stock MAY be too small or short for some thicker or longer batteries; my battery however, being a standard size fit fine.
Overall the gun is awesome in nearly every respect. Feels great, weight is balanced, accurate and very comfortable. Seems to me that the gun wouldn't exactly be a bad deal even if they bumped up the price! 9.5 out of 10"
