I Love it. The guns materials are great...the receiver and barrel are metal. The stock is a lighter nylon or plastic but it is securely fixed unto the gun and it's very sturdy. Now let's talk about the range... It can hit a barrel at like 50 yards easy. I have scope from my hunting shot gun and it works great. It is perfect when zeroed in. The hop-up is very tricky to adjust, like I mean tricky but I'm gonna try to rig up a tube so I won't have to take five minutes to find it. But when it's adjusted it rocks! The range is great when it's upgraded like it is. I got it for Christmas this year so I haven't played a real game yet but I have got some long range shot of my deck in the snow. I did shoot my friend at about ten feet in a uncomfortable area and it about brought him to tears! So Dur not a close quarters weapon... So you will probably need a pistol overall I love it the clips are nice.. It's easy to take part and to upgrade and is a ton of fun!! .... Buy it !
Ps I am hoping to post a review and shooting vid this summer so I'll up the link on here if I dobob smith

Best sniper for the price
I have had this gun for almost 2 years now and I have to say this is by far the best gun I have. The whole thing is sturdy, nothing loose.
The hop up system could be better but, for what it is, its fine. With .25's I easily go into the high 400's and low 500's fps range. The buttpad and cheekrest are adjustable. The trigger has 2 stages to it (basically there's a trigger inside a trigger meaning you can't pull it all the way unless you pull both. Make sense?) The two included magazines are high quality. The only cons I have with the gun is that you have to have an allen wrench to adjust the hop up. Which is a real pain. Also the included sling WILL break really easily, so I recommend splurging the extra money to get it. Since I've had it, im the only sniper people fear (and these are in huge games with lots of other snipers) because this gun is unbelievably accurate at long range. The UTG L96 is far better than the WELL L96 from what I've learned. Overall this gun is a must have and I give it 5 stars.Aaron
