This is my first foray into Airsoft. I wanted something I can shoot at nuisance animals to make them unhappy in my yard without doing any permanent damage. I was in the military and was very comfortable with the M-16 so I got one that is basically shaped the same.
The packaging is of surprisingly high quality. The shaped styrofoam is so solid and form-fitting it is actually difficult to get most of the items out of it. Hang on to the lid as you will want the pictures to help you figure out how things fit together.
The feel of the basic gun is amazing. It is the same size as the real M-4 (the modern collapsing stock version of the M-16) and feels almost as solid. The safety, sights and magazine are all in the same place and have a remarkably authentic feel, although the hinge of the saftey selector does not go all the way through the receiver like on the real one and it would have been an easy capability to add. I occasionally teach people firearms safety and marksmanship and believe I will now use this as an intoductory training tool before switching to a real AR-15 (the semi-auto civilian version of the M-16).
There is a grip safety on the front of the handgrip that you have to actuate before the trigger will function. It is fairly easy to integrate this extra safety switch with your normal hold so it is not a big annoyance, although I am not a fan because if a real rifle doesnt have it I dont see why a BB gun needs one.
This gun has a lot of accessories. Unfortunately the instructions are in Engrish (not a typo) so you are on your own in figuring how to get them installed and working.
It comes with: a carrying strap which other reviewers have panned thoroughly so I have no intention of relying on it, a magazine loading tube, a pair of safety goggles so you dont put your eye out like the Ralphie in "a Christmas Story" although they are non-linear (ie looking through them is like looking through prescription lenses - but SOMEONE ELSE's prescription), a laser targetter which I have no clue how to activate, a flashlight which I may or may not add since I dont anticipate shooting in the dark and a pseudo-red-dot sight which I also have no intention of using because I prefer "open" sights for their ease of tracking a moving target. It also comes with an additional handle to use it more like a machine pistol that I will also probably forgo the benefit of. It has a speed loader for the magazine that I assume holds a clip's worth of BBs, but once again in the absence of meaningful instructions one is on one's own as to how to use it. Naturally it comes with a recharger for the main battery and small batteries for the accessories.
The main battery is in the handgrip area. To recharge the main battery you have to take apart the handgrip which is rather fussy, I would rather field-strip an M-16 completely than try to get at this battery. If I wind up using this a lot I will solder in a charging jack of some kind so it can be recharged without having to be dismantled. On the other hand its a $40 toy and cheap M-16s go for $700-ish, so...
It comes with a small pack of .12g BBs that will refill the magazine 3 or 4 times so buy some more when you buy the gun. These come out of the gun at such a high velocity I cant really see them - I wish I had access to a chronograph. I bought a big jar of .20g BBs and they are much more "deliberate" coming out and are apparently slightly larger in diameter as they have a distinct resistance when inserting into the magazine which the originals did not exhibit. I would probably also buy another magazine, perhaps a higher capacity or easier to load or both, but I have not yet done so so I cant recommend one.
I have only fired a couple of magazines thru it. Once you have started firing, several BBs are rather loose in the space between the receiver and the magazine so if you remove the magazine you will lose some BBs. It seems to pull left. As I get more used to it I may post an update. If it fails in the first year I will definitely post an update.
I contacted support to try and exchange the gun for one with a better FPS rating (notice the high shipping costs airsplat charges, I'm guessing I'm not the only dissatisfied customer), which was a disaster. I had to exchange almost a dozen emails before I got the go-ahead to make a switch. By this time I no longer had the original packaging and my 30 day time frame during which the product needed to be returned was almost out. I ended up keeping the gun, but the only action it will see will probably be more along the lines of a paper weight than an airgun. Oh well, there's always next years garage sale.
I suppose it's what I get for not really looking at the pictures, to try and find the well logo because if I had looked I would have seen the Double Eagle logo, and I probably would would have saved my $40. For what its worth though, it's not a bad gun, and came with some cool accessories, though the scope isn't that great.
I don't find the gun all that accurate, as when I was setting the hop up, only about half the shots hit and I wasn't more than five feet away from the target, and I know my aim isn't that bad. Also the I kept on having to take the magazine out and dump the bb sitting on top out and reset the mag, because the gun wouldn't pull the next bb through. That might be a magazine clip problem though and not the gun. The magazines are difficult to load, and get back in the gun. When actually loading it's one of those pour bbs into a tube then push the bb's into the tube with a rod type Mag, so you'd have to have a couple mags set up if your actually going to use the gun in Airsoft skirmishes. The mag also wouldn't click into the gun. I had to brace the gun in my lap and then push the mag in with both hands to get it to click into place so the bb's would go through. Again I suppose this could be a magazine problem, but considering it came with the gun if there is something wrong with the mag clip it's a little disappointing.
The gun has a plastic gear box so don't try to play with it for long periods of time, as it's possible for it to die out on you if you use it for extended periods. The adjustable stock I leave all the way in because it's very wobbly, and the clip you press to move the stock is really quite lose, and feels like its going to fall off of the gun.
Overall if you're looking for a cheap gun, and you plan on doing is a little bit of target practice here or there go ahead and buy this gun. If you're looking to play Airsoft skirmishes, save your money and go buy a different gun. If you're looking for the Well R-6 and you think you're getting it here cheaper like me, again save your money you'll be dissapointed.
It looks cool
Okay accuracy (not great but decent)
