Hey Rdog, saw you over on the sniper boards. Here is a quick bit of info for you copied and pasted from the other boards:
I had one starting back my sniping career, and is still in use today by a few friends. While I am not going to write a huge review, I will say that the Gen. 3 model has held up for a long ass time. The trigger box seems extremely durable, holding up a 400 fps spring for quite some time. The cylinder parts are in tact and the bolt is well finished and much more durable than expected.
It is not the best performing rifle, but it is one that will introduce you to sniping for a very low price. The parts are not of amazing quality, but since its only running a 400 fps spring, the rifle has held up nicely.
I recommend it for a beginner on a budget. Just know there are little to no parts compatible with this rifle besides the "upgrade kit".
PS: That was info based on the gen. 3 rifle. The gen. 5 might be shooting a little hotter.
Let me know if you have any other questions. I might be able to answer them for you. And if you plan on upgrading and such, I would look at a different rifle base platform.

I know you're excited about find this forum and it's clear that you're very enthusiastic about airsoft, but after two warnings and 10 posts, everything you're writing still looks like stream of consciousness crap. Beyond the obvious grammar problems (which are warning worthy, by the way), you're all over the place. You ask about a shit gun, get some feedback, say you already know "a decent amount about airsoft," then ask how to start a team in the same thread. You've got to settle down a little bit and get some focus.
Do yourself a favor and stop posting for a week, and instead just read. Read all of the stickies in every section, but especially the ones in the Newbie section. Then read a bunch of threads in the Newbie section. Then read a bunch of threads in other sections. Just try to get a feel for how both this hobby and this forum work. Check out the gallery and after action reports to see what game play looks like. Pay attention to the way other members are posting, how they're writing, what sorts of questions they're asking, how threads run, all of that stuff.
When you've done that and think you've got a better handle both on this forum and airsoft as a whole, start posting again. Ask well thought-out and coherent questions, and take the time to compose a post. This isn't instant messenger or a text conversation--there are no time constraints or character limits. Write like you give a damn about what people think of you, because all we have to go on is what you post. If you write like a spastic 13 year old (and you do), we're going to think of you as a spastic 13 year old. And if we can't understand what the hell you're on about, we can't help you. Show some respect to your readers and take your time when you post. Edit and filter what comes through your head before you hit the submit button.
