I've had this gun for just under a year now, and have used it through quite a few wars and skirmishes. In the time I've used it, I have had little to no problems with it. The first thing you're going to realize about this gun, is that it's heavy. Every time I've let one of my friends use this gun, their very first reaction was, "This things got some weight!" So depending on the type of airsofter you are, you can take that whichever way you like. I personally find it to be a pro and con. It really adds to the realism, but can also be a bit tiresome in longer games. I would highly recommend getting a good sling to help with that a little.
Moving onto performance, this gun does its job, and I mean that in the best of ways. with the right hop up adjustments, this gun can shoot with deadly range and accuracy. The hop up itself is easy to adjust, and keeps its place pretty well. I've had no issues with it as of so far. When I first got the gun I thought I might replace it or the bucking, but both perform so well, I feel no need to. I don't have a crono myself so I can't say the exact fps the gun shoots at, but I would estimate it at 370-380fps. Which for all you new airsofters getting into airsoft. Don't worry. Shooting under 400fps is extremely normal, and is actually needed to play at most indoor fields. The mags this gun came with worked well for me for about the first 6 months, but after that I started having some feeding issues. I was able to fix it however just by placing a strip of velcro on the back side of the mag well. So if you ever run into that problem, just know that it's a simple fix. I actually run KWA K120 mags now, but that's mostly due to the fact that I just prefer mid-caps over high-caps. I've had no feeding problems with them in this gun.
Externally this gun is also exceptional. If you are planning on upgrading your gun externally, you will be extremely pleased to have the full metal RIS. I've done my fair share of external upgrades, and not having to buy extra rails was a very nice plus to the gun. One thing I have noticed about the front RIS, is the fact that it wobbles ever so slightly. It's not a big deal, didn't even notice till I put my angled grip on it. I believe it's just caused by the fact that it's made of four different parts. I also wish the rail was a little longer. I have long arms, so since the rail is a little small, it makes it hard to grip your gun properly. Moving on from that. If you plan to remove the front triangle sight, you should know this gun might give you a little more fight than some m4's. You can still just punch the pins, but the sight will still take some force to remove after that, it's not just going to slide right off after, like some. All in all, every part on this gun feels very well made.
So if you are looking into this gun, then I would highly recommend it to you. It's been a very reliable weapon on the field for me, and I think if you're just looking into airsoft, or even if you're looking for a good primary weapon to use in large events, but don't want to drop a ton of money, I don't think this gun will let you down.
