Things I liked: The guns weight and size are amazing. The tactical rail works great, and the sling is sturdy, and the mag has solid construction.
Things I would have changed: the bolt is too hard to pull back, and the mag holds very little ammo.
What others should know: Personally my gun had chipped paint, a dusty frame, and grease across the entire top of the gun. For me the gun came in awful condition; although it was most likely a fluke my gun had too many flaws for me to buy it again (after returning). Those things that made me not try re-buying the gun in a better physical condition were: the difficulty of pulling back the bolt, the amount of ammo the gun holds, and since i was right handed the bolt made me let go of the trigger to cock it. I believe there are other guns (specifically a multi-shot tactical shotgun) on this site that have better accuracy, better rate of fire, and more ammo.
Things I liked: i like the action
Things I would have changed: nothing
What others should know: nope
Things I liked: This rifle closely resembles its real steel counterpart, and lives up to that reputation. It is accurate, well-built, powerful, and plain fun to use. In addition, it is easily modified to look like a WWII M1 Garand, for those of us who collect these springers for historical replica purposes and for display.
Things I would have changed: The metal, adjustable sights are some of the best, but they can and will loosen and fall apart if worked too much. Check and tighten them periodically. Treat magazines with care, they can be fragile. Don't over-load. The rear sling attachment is plastic and subject to breakage. Why couldn't this be metal, like the front one? I do wish that TSD would make these rifles with a simulated wood stock. Black might be fashionable these days, but M14's are classics, and a "retro" look would be appreciated.
What others should know: Like many spring rifles, this one has steel weights placed in its buttstock to simulate the weight of a real rifle. They place it off-balance to the rear. Over time, they can work loose and rattle about inside the stock. I'd remove them by CAREFULLY disassembling the stock. Fill the hollow area with styrofoam or shredded terrycloth to provide support and sound control. I like wood stocks, so I found brown paint that bonds to plastic and sprayed the stock (with the operating system removed) with a few coats. The gun will accept a "modified" M47 shotgun magazine. Its addition makes the rifle closely resemble an M1 Garand.
Is there some extension that will allow a normal scope (not a long eye relief scope) to be attached to this gun?
Currently, there is not.
