Things I liked: Powerful and weight is similar to a real AR! I have owned mine for over 2 years and still love it! It came with a cheap scope but was able to dial it in okay! I bought a strap for it and the swivels work fine for me! It has been very accurate!

Things I would have changed: The trigger needs work but have seen a fix, a better scope and I think anyone would love this gun!

What others should know: Nothing, I love mine it looks and feels real cool!

Things I liked: I like the nitro piston powerplant..and combined with the M16, it is a terrific combo! I like that I have the non-gun permit version, which I rated for up to 500 fps/4.2 fpe and Crosman didn't just detuned to shoot 5 grain ammo up to 500 fps, like they generally do with inexpensive guns like the m4-177, instead they detuned to shoot 7.4 grain lead pellets around 500 fps! When I chronographed it with Crosman's 5.4 grain penetrators it shot as high as 620 fps!

Things I would have changed: I would prefer a buttstock that was adjustable, like the M4, or at least make the classic M16 stock solid. It would be nice if the charging handle functioned as a manual safety, instead of just being a non functioning molded part.

What others should know: Shoot at least 300-500 rounds before casting judgment on the rifle, because mine got smoother as I used it and even the trigger seems to get more predictable.

Things I liked: It's accurate and, from a distance, looks like an AR. Has a picatinny mount. Good if you want to get experience shooting an AR without shooting an AR and don't want to fork out for the Benjamin Armada.

Things I would have changed: Just about everything. - It looks and feels REALLY cheap. Everything on it (e.g. safety, ejection port, primer etc) is fake and non-functional. Up close it looks like a toy. - It's ridiculously hard to cock, and requires a "tap" as well to get the barrel going down. I need to put it on the ground and push down on it, leg cocking gets painful real quick. - It's loud. Like ringing in your ears, probably need hearing protection loud. - The trigger has such a long pull that sometimes I need to stop and take another breath. - The scope loses zero almost every time I shoot it.

What others should know: It looks cool and it's the only AR-style airgun that's affordable, but you're paying for looks only. What you get is the crappiest airgun experience you can imagine. I'm going to be replacing mine with a Benjamin Trail or similar. I like the pistol grip, but I'm a basement shooter and I need something that won't get the neighbors calling the cops on me.

  • Tim from USA asked:

    The trigger is horrible, has anyone found a replacement or some way to make it smoother? Does Charlie da tuna make one? I screwed mine all the way in and all the way out and everywhere in between and it still feels like a 10 pound pull that is dragging across sandpaper. Also what kind of pellets work? Mine shot best with RWS supermags, but it is pretty inaccurate at 30 yards. It's not broke in though, maybe it will get better.

    • Steven from USA:

      There are several videos on YouTube showing how to improve the trigger greatly by using a 2.5 mm bearing found in hobby shops that deal with rc cars. Makes a world of difference

  • Nam from USA asked:

    Are you able to change out the buttstock?

    • Stanley from USA:

      No .

  • Garry from USA asked:

    Is this compatible with standard AR iron sights ?

    • Gregory from Canada:

      Yes, it comes with the standard picatinny rail.
