Things I liked:I am very picky with my money. After a long, long, long search I finally decided on this gun. Full metal construction, strong recoil (for airsoft), and high accuracy make this gun a real beast for airsoft games. Some people don't like the fact that it's CO2, but I think that's the best part, since you can get the canisters anywhere, including Walmart. I've had my gun for about 6 months. Totally love it. Things I would have changed:The paint comes away after MUCH extended use (I handle my gun almost every day) and scratches off the magazine because of the friction. A functioning de-cocker would be pretty cool too. What others should know:This goes through the CO2 fast, you can get three solid magazines (around 75 rounds) and then you've gotta change it out. Recommend purchase of additional magazine.
