Things I liked: I bought this for my kid, although I have been having fun with it, too. The rear sight fell apart after only 2 days, but otherwise the construction is very good. The full auto is a lot of fun, and its easy to walk your rounds in. Mag changes are surprisingly quick and easy.
Things I would have changed: The front grip and the adjustable stock are not the best quality and have a loose fit. Put a good quality holo sight on it and you are ready to rock and roll. Just for curiosity's sake, I installed my Eotech sight off my issued weapon for an afternoon, and it made this shooter a real kick to play with. Nothing like using a sight that cost 3 times what the airsoft rifle cost. I would like to see the battery easier and faster to change.
What others should know: As the owner and operator of real M4's, I can tell you that it DOES NOT feel like the real thing, despite the added weight. The center of gravity is way off. The thing does have great accuracy, although you can tell that people on here are exagerating about the distances they are hitting at. I clamped this thing in a gun vise at a rifle range to sight it in, and it will not consistantly hit a bottle cap sized target at 50 meters as an ealrier review claims no matter what you do with the hop-up.

Things I liked:  Excellent weight, decent accuracy, good power, and an overall well built gun. Flip down sights (which are very good) and a large top rail make mounting optics a nice option. Motor and gear box seem well built and not too noisy. Battery compartment was easier than expected to access for battery replacement, and seems to hold the battery securly. Metal selector switch is fairly smooth and has a nice "click" when selecting between firing modes. Easy teardown for barrel or top gearbox access is very good. Adjustable bottom and side rails are a nice touch as well. Other things which impressed me are the metal charging handle (pull back and hold for hop-up adjustment through mock ejection port), mock metal bolt catch release (doesn't realy do much, but is a nice touch), and removable trigger guard (for easier use with gloves).
Things I would have changed:  A little more powerful battery would have been nice, but the one that is included is good enough for light to moderate use without modifying the gun. I was also expecting a metal receiver. Although the quality and finish of the plastic is very nice, it was a little disappointing. The strap that's included is not recommended to be used with this gun, considering it weighs around 8lbs. fully loaded. That heavy weight could also be a problem for long skirmishes or younger players, so keep this in mind. And the front fore grip doesn't always stay where you put it, so you may consider getting a different one depending on if you end up having problems with it.
What others should know:  The charger that is included is not a smart charger, therefore it needs to be monitored or put on a timer in order to keep it from frying the battery from overcharging. Also the accuracy is decent with high grade .20 gram bb's, but they tend to have a mind of their own after around 120ft. This is good enough for most skirmishes though, and with a tight bore barrel the accuracy will improve noticibly. Rate of fire and power is good for a stock weapon, and with the metal version 2 gearbox it gives you great upgrade options for the future. Overall, this gun is amazing for the price. Good power/accuracy/ROF out of the box, great weight, fit and finish, nice functinality and upgradeability, and a unique olive green/black finish thats sure to impress. And the best part about all of this is how fast I got the gun from pyramid air. I ordered the gun on Sunday, December 21, along with an accessory, in order to get the free shipping. I didn't need the gun before Christmas, so thats why I went with the free ground. But to my amazement, the package arrived at my doorstep on December 24, in the morning! I looked on the package, and it said FedEx 2 Day air, so kudos to Pyramid Air for not only having a great gun for a great price, but throwing in free 2 day express shipping just so it would make it before Christmas day! So with that, I highly recommend this gun, as well as this store, to anyone who was quality in more ways than one.

Things I liked: This is a good sturdy gun with a great rate of fire and very good accuracy. Having multiple tactical rails has been very helpful for adding accessories.
Things I would have changed: A bigger battery would be helpful. It would have been good if a sling had been inclulded.
What others should know: We had only one minor problem with the gun, which was that the front swivel sling mount broke as I installed it. I contacted the manufacturer and they promptly provided a replacement under warranty.
