Things I liked:Highly accurate. Matched with a quality scope, bipod and 0.43g BB's, it is one of the best out-of-the-box snipers available.
Things I would have changed:The casting quality on the plastic stock parts is rough. Where the two halves mate there is more casting flash than preferable. While easily fixed with a light filing, it is something the manufacturer should remedy and not the consumer.
What others should know:The stock energy output of the G96 (measured mine at 3.95 joules) was hotter than desired. Even with 0.43g BB's, velocity induced drift is readily apparent at distance. Light BB's (0.25g) are completely unuseable; you can see them sharply arc right past about 50ft. I added an external CO2 regulator (Firebase) to mine so I could tune finely the PSI/output. Tuned down to about 3 joules (380FPS with 0.43g @ 95PSI) and mated with a bipod and a 3-12x44mm scope, it easily hits 3/4-inch target stickers at 100ft. Needless to say, it is an effective field sniper as well.
