The majority of this gun is metal. Only the stock is ABS, the rest of the gun (barrel, trigger, receiver, scope, scope mounts, bolt and bolt handle) are metal.

Screws to install the action and barrel are in the stock. To get the screws, turn the stock upside down. You'll see two holes with one screw in each (one behind the triggerguard & one in the stock). Use the large Allen wrench (included) to attach the barrel to the stock.

Things I liked: I got this rifle less the scope and added my own scope. Either way you cannot lose getting this rifle. Beginner, intermediate, whatever you will enjoy. I therefore recommend this sniper rifle.

Things I would have changed: Not much actually. If I think of anything I will add it later.

What others should know: It is about 46" and one heavy sucker (exact weight I am not sure). Yes, the bipod can seem wobbly but it is held in place by a rod as a single point, that said I don't have any issue with it. It does also have a hefty pull when cocking to fire.

Things I liked: Solid construction, adjustable buttplate and cheekplate, shoots fairly accurate.

Things I would have changed: The bipod that comes with it is okay, consider an aftermarket bipod if you really use it alot. The black matte finish on the barrel scratches easily, a camo wrap goes a long way in protecting it.

What others should know: This is a great sniper rifle. It is a smoothbore so you can only shoot so accurate but for the price point it's great.

Things I liked: The style of gun, price, easy disassembly and how smooth everything worked.

Things I would have changed: Adjustable trigger maybe, the trigger is fine but options are always a plus.

What others should know: You can't go wrong with this gun, its got the power, accuracy and quality to hang up there with the Mauri's at a way lower cost. Also, i recommend using .30 gram bb's

  • Richard E from USA asked:

    Serious about getting this but: are the mounting rails metal, does it come with a scope and bipod? I try to pick Action Kit 2167 but it gives me the scope I do not want. Help!

    • Jordan from USA:

      it comes with a bipod , i don't think it comes with a scope

  • William from USA asked:

    So, I recently purchased this gun. I zeroed in the scope and it was fine, but then I adjusted the hop-up and it is now shooting upwards. I adjusted the hop-up all the way down to normal and it is still shooting upwards. Any reason why this is happening?

    • Jordan from USA:

      the hopup is stuck you can take the barrel off to have easier accesses to the hop to try and adjust it

  • Anthony from USA asked:

    In the video it shot 370-380 fps with .25g BBs, why does it say 430-440 fps in the description?

    • Stanley from USA:

      Item description states 480 fps with a 0.20g ammo. the lighter the ammo the faster it is.
