Spike Tactical is a US based firearm company who focuses on high quality accessories and completed guns. Spike’s has become extremely popular in USA because of its "Rock-N-Roll" extreme design and brand image. Of course, their high quality product and fair price has made them even more popular. OEM through G&G, the internals of this AEG are some of the best on the market for this price-point. G&G gearboxes are also some of the most robust, easy to upgrade, and long-lasting in any AEG. The nylon fiber body that comprises the upper and lower receiver are extremely durable as well. Overall, this AEG is one of the best deals out there. The Socom Gear ST15 takes the essence of what Spike’s is all about has created a fully licensed version of their outstanding product. The ST15 is ultra light weight due to its ABS body. The most important properties of ABS are impact resistance and toughness. Coupled with the body; Spike’s Tactical 9” BAR Rail is a very sexy and light-weight hand guard rail with 5 QD sockets, a lot of holes for cutting weight, low profile gas block compatible and big size diameter for suppressor installation. And for increased accuracy, Socom Gear added the Madbull Python 6.03 tight bore inner barrel to take the enemy out with extreme precision.
I have had this gun for about 7 months now and I am not too impressed. The gun looks amazing and feels really nice. What I don't like is how wide the magwell is. I cannot get my midcaps to feed without tape. I would be fine with putting the tape in, but then the mags stick when I try to reload. The rails are also very wide making it hard to fit anything on without a hammer and soap. Other than that, the gun runs perfectly and is very accurate. If you are willing to work with the mags or spend extra money to get Amoeba or PTS mags, I would recommend this gun.Tanner
