I actually didnt get this gun off of amazon but instead i got it off of Airsplat. I would suggest you do the same. The overall cost is about $140 dollars without tax, but the extra money is worth using instead of getting a hunk of clone gun junk. When you open the box it should come with:
metal bolt assembly
tri-rail for bi-pod
1/4 in. allen wrench
1/8 in. allen wrench
speed loader w/ attachment
Use the following link to go to a video which gives instructions on how to put the gun together; [...]
Dont use the crappy chinese instructions given in the manual.
Starting at the butt stock, the stock is all ABS plastic but is very durable and compact. The butt stock itself is not adjustable but you might be able to add spacers later. The cheek rest though is adjustable. If you loosen the two allen wrench screws that are on the right side of the gun, you can slide the cheek rest up and down depending on your preference.
Next, the trigger has two parts, the inner trigger and the outer trigger. The inner trigger is plastic while the outer trigger is metal. When firing, you have to press the inner trigger and then pull the outer trigger. To me this is a clever safety feature. The safety on the gun is metal as well. It is located on the right side of the gun right above the trigger. When the red dot is showing, you are ready to fire, when its not, the safety is activated. Another safety feature is on the bolt. If the bolt is not pushed down in its slot after being cocked, the gun will not fire, so make sure the bolt is in its slot correctly. The bolt itself though is all metal and its slide has been pre-lubricated so it is extremely easy to pull back.
When loading the magazine (which is half metal and half plastic and holds about 30 rounds), you have two options, you can either load by hand, or you can use the speed loader. When putting the magazine in the slot, make sure that it makes a loud click and is in there tightly. If put in incorrectly, it can lead to missfires.
The magazine release button is metal as well and is located right above the magazine if the gun is standing up. Push the button towards the butt stock for the magazine to release.
Next, the hop-up is located in the tiny slot between the magazine release button and the fore-stock. There is a small allen wrench screw in that slot. Use the smallest of the allen wrenches provided to adjust the hop-up.
The bi-pod i have to say is absolutely genius. To pull out the legs, push the nobs on the side of the legs torwards the end of the barrel, then extend them down. To extend the legs, turn the grippy ring near the rubber part (i cant remember which way) until the legs extend. Tighten them by turning the ring the opposite way. To put the extended legs in, loosen the ring and push in the legs, hold them, and tighten the ring to keep them in place.
Lastly the barrel. The barrel itself is all metal and is one of the tightest barrels i have ever seen. This allows great speed and accuracy. But remember to clean your barrel frequently with the cleaning rod provided.
This is a great gun. Good price, good features, good look, good speed, good accuracy and is very durable. Along with its great feel, look, etc. this gun is very easy to upgrade. With the right upgrades, you can get this gun to fire well over 500 fps and hit targets at 250 feet. I wouldnt advise using anything lighter than .20 gram bbs and bio-degradible bbs as ive heard that some will shatter in the gun and jam it. Good luck and good sniping!
