Things I liked:We are relatively new to airsoft and this gun was certainly the most expensive we've purchased or used. But it is really impressive; clocked @over 400fps w/20g pellets after 2 hours of use. Super-accurate, great distance. Blows away anything we've experienced, and others with extensive experience with Airsoft were equally impressed and jealous... Quality sees excellent, solid. Not bothered by the plywood - this thing did not cost $500. Kalashnikov insignia looks cool. Very pleased with this purchase and based on quality will seek to purchase other Cybergun products. Things I would have changed:I wouldn't change it, but be advised that this is all metal and therefore it is heavy. Yes in an ideal world the wood would be nicer but for the money I am happy. What others should know:Not for beginners or young ones - it shoots fast and very very hard.
