- The pistol made by god
This is the best gas gun ever and you need to buy it.
When I first got this gun I was impressed by its amazing performance. I took it up to my room and shot it at my pillow using green gas and was shocked at how hard it shot. Also the Accuracy way amazing. It fits well in my holster and doesn't move around. Also I love the way the mag is kept in because it stops it from being projected out of the holster when you are playing. The cap of the mag is fairly good but the gas consumption is amazing. You can average about 3 mags on one filling of gas. It is mighty powerful and is great for a sidearm and is one heck of a GNBB. I shot myself at pointblank with the gun in the stomach just to see how badly it hurt and I both bled and had a bruise around the area. It hurt so bad I fell over. I do not recommend using Xtreme (red gas) in this gun for obvious reasons. Firstly it's mighty powerful already but even more because it could damage the gun badly because of the plastic outer shell. Also even though you gan FPS you lose accuracy. Green Gas is much better than Red gas. One more tip is don't judge your guns performance by the bbs that come with it. They aren't of very high quality and I recommend that you take them and use them for a spring gun and use some HFC or KSC bbs for this gun.
PROS AND CONS:
LOUD (I like it like that)
Plastic shell (heavy duty plastic though)
Not very costumizable
Rated on a scale of 1-10
I'd say thats pretty good for a 70 dollar gas pistol.
Accuracy Using .2g HFC bbs (Lubed) and green gas from 40 feet. [Target goes Bullseye Red Green Yellow Blue Black]
That is REALLY good accuracy (considering I am not the best shot)
Now If you have tested the gun and you are a power freak and need more bang you can easily upgrade this gun. Or if you need to get it to a lower FPS you can also downgrade that.

Since this gun is gas it does not rely directly on springs or pistons to propel the bb. Instead, it relies on gas stored in a reservoir in the magazine. When the trigger is pulled, the hammer (part number 35) is released and strikes the gas valve (part number 57) on the back of the magazine to release a burst of gas. The distance that the valve travels with each hammer strike determines how much gas is released. The more gas released, the higher the velocity and vice versa.
The power of the hammer is determined by the resistance of the mainspring (also known as the “hammer spring”, part number 45). As the trigger is pulled, the hammer strut (part number 36) pushes down on the mainspring plunger (part number 44) compressing the mainspring. At a certain point in the trigger pull, the disconnector (part number 34) releases the hammer and allows the mainspring to decompress and push the hammer strut, forcing the hammer to strike the valve.
Adjusting the resistance of the mainspring is as simple as replacing the spring and/or adding spacers to the equation. (Spacers reduce the amount of room for the mainspring and force it to compress more. The more compressed it becomes the greater its resistance, exerting more force when it decompresses.)
Adjusting the Mainspring:
To adjust the mainspring, first remove the mainspring housing (part number 41). To do so, pull the housing latch (part number 47) on the back of the mainspring housing out from the grip of the replica. (The stock must be removed from the MK.1 carbine to access the housing latch and remove the mainspring housing.) Then, pull the mainspring housing out of the assembled replica.
Once the mainspring housing is free, use a small screwdriver, hex wrench, or punch to push the bolt stop retaining pin (part number 43) out of the housing. Be very careful since the mainspring is under tension and may “shoot” the housing latch and mainspring detent (part number 46) out of the housing. (Try pointing the housing into a plastic bag when pulling the retaining pin out.)
Downgrading velocity will require replacing the stock mainspring with one or more replacement springs and, possibly, spacers. Experiment with different configurations to achieve the desired results. If one spring alone is not powerful enough, the addition of spacers and even a narrower (smaller outside diameter) spring nested inside of it will increase the resistance. Springs nested inside of a larger spring combines the resistance of all of the springs achieving a greater, net resistance than each of the springs alone.
Upgrading velocity is as simple as adding spacers to the mainspring. The greater the space occupied in the mainspring housing by spacers, the less room the mainspring has to compress. The result will be greater compression on the mainspring and greater resistance placed on the hammer strut. Too many spacers, however, and the mainspring will not have enough room to compress and will not allow for a full trigger pull. Using several washers instead of one large spacer (e.g.: an AirSoft bb) will allow for greater control and customization. Alternatively, the stock mainspring can be replaced with a stiffer spring or spring combination or supplimented with another spring nested inside of it.
When adding spacers, make sure to insert the mainspring plunger into the housing first, followed by the mainspring. Then add the desired spacers. The mainspring detent then goes in after the spacers.
Afterward, reassemble the mainspring housing, reassemble the replica, and test fire the gun. When downgrading velocity, it will immediately be evident whether there is enough resistance in the mainspring to fire or not. If it will fire, chronograph it and determine whether it needs more tuning. It may take several combinations and experiments to find the right mix of springs and spacers.
If you are looking to find some springs and spacers check out your local hardware store. They will have a great selection to chose from.

This gun is amazing and you need to buy this. You won't regret your decision to purchase this gun. Best gas gun under 150 dollars. You need to get it.
Once again I need to thank Teamblackjack for the help on figuring out how to upgrade this gun. And I hope this review helped you all out.
Hope you get this gun.
