Things I liked: Very hefty well built gun...echo 1 which I've always had great luck with...shoots pretty hot right outta the box...fairly accurate with the stock barrel and hop up. Loving the texture and durability of the stock...nice adjustable butt plate. Comes with a decent Harris style bi-pod which swivels like the real steel version. Nice metal top rail to mount optics. Full metal fluted barrel, metal reciever, trigger group and sear set. Came with two 18 round plastic magazines, unjamming rod and counter clockwise muzzle adapter which enables you to put a barrel extension, slencer or suppressor of your choice. Pyramid is a great company and saved me enough cash on this rifle @ $125 to buy a nice sniper scope to put on it! Bought refurbished and still looks and shoots like brand new...only difference is the airsoft techs have gone thru the gun to ensure your getting a good working gun, so in a way your getting a better gun with the peace of mind it will operate top notch! Thanks Pyramid!!! You guys and gals rock!
Things I would have changed: I would make the magazine/ clips out of metal instead of plastic...could be refitted with a good scope to match the gun...other than that its perfect!
What others should know: Metal 18 round mags are available! Buy a better sling, lol Better accuracy with. 30 bbs. DON'T, I REPEAT DO NOT USE CHEAP AMMO!!! Just spend the few extra bucks on some good ammo as it will definitely save you some serious problems...the threaded muzzle adapter is a metal 14mm counter clockwise thread...also this is a fairly heavy rifle...might be a little work for a smaller person to run with.
Things I liked: The looks and feel...trades...thats about it
Things I would have changed: Quality overall...not impressed at all.
What others should know: Soft cheap metal slide, slide catch stops working quickly due to cheap metal slide rounding off where it catches...constantly jams causing loading nozzle to break...bbfeeding ramp cracked in half about 40 shots after I got it...slide sticks bad Iunledd you over lube...kwa made a ton of excuses when I complained...doing research concludes lots of people having the same problems...kwa totally dropped the ball on this one! I now have a $165 paper weight. Needless to say kjw all the way from here on out for me! This is no fault of pyramid neither...they are a great company! This gun was purchased elsewhere...will only be buying from pyramid from now on as they have awesome service and care about their customer
Things I liked: The overall look is appealing...nice trades...full metal durable magazine
Things I would have changed: Reinforced bb loading ramp and loading nozzle...better quality metal material for the slide...should definitly perform as great as it looks...
What others should know: This thing has been a nightmare since I bought it! First the feeding ramp cracked in half about 40 shots after unboxing...was cheap to fix but still a bummer. The new ramp was to tight on the bbs causing jams which in turn caused the loading nozzle to deform and eventually break...then to top it off, the slide catch rounded off the cheap metal used on the slide causing the slide to no longer lock back correctly when last shot is fired...and no replacement part support or upgrade parts availability... needless to say this is definitely not on par or even close to the reliability and quality I've loved from kwa in the past...I've given up on this as a primary sidearm and went back to my m226 ptp...it now sits as an expensive paperweight on my bench...I totally would not recommend buying this gun if your looking for dependability and quality...research via forums and google shows that these are pretty common issues with this particular gun though kwa claimes they haven't had many complaints or returns...hmmfff.
