This kid is smart. I have the shitty utg l96, played a summer with it and now it only shoots 410 and the hop up failed.plus i had the drop on five guy and could not hit any of then because this gun can not shoot straight. Do not get the utg unless you want to be upset before the summer is up
The UTG is of course crappy out of the box...It's a clone selling for $100 after all. Honestly, how do you expect a clone to compare against a higher end rifle? The reason most people (as in the ones with some airsoft knowledge--fps does not equal everything) purchase the UTG is to use it as a base for upgrading. It takes the same parts as the maruzen, and offers a great cheap platform for upgrading.
Not only that, but with a few mods and some work, the UTG can perform somewhat decently. Yeah it takes some work, but its worth it. If you are unable to do a little modding, some hard work, and able to buy upgrades in the future (as the stock parts will fail at some point), than bolt actions are not for you, especially the UTG mk96. That is the reason you are so angry about the UTG.
