[56k Friendly] DBoys Mauser Kar98k Wood & Metal Version

This review is in progress as it's really late as of now. Will finish it up tomorrow thanks for your patience.

I was going to post this under Kullwarriors post but don't know if doing that will be in violation with rules so I created my own separate thread. If this is in fact incorrect please merge my thread with his, thanks in advance!

OK mine arrived at the door this afternoon. It's the real wood and metal spring action version, not the gas powered, but I love it nonetheless! Here's the pic of it in the box:

It's all plastic sealed which is really good news for me. I never liked airsoft retailers "pre-checking" my airsoft guns for me. I know they do it with good intent but I don't like it just "new", but MIMB (mint in mint box, dunno if people still use this term haha).

Here's what's in the box with all its contents:

I don't know if I'm wrong but I recall seeing the in ads and some online sites that the shells are gold/bronze in color? The ones I got are silver, still nice. The sling that came with it is a joke, and the bigger joke is the instruction manual. It's just one piece of paper, literally. It's folded in half so it creates a two page manual haha, and a quick skim revealed several spelling errors. Oh well at least they're trying. The BBs I was told not to use, so try not using them.

Now the rifle itself... OK you know what it's 2:40AM so I'm just gonna take a break here, I'll continue tomorrow to sum this rifle up. But just that I quickly weighed the rifle and it's 3.2kg, good but not quite for me because the real steel is 3.7kg-4.1kg, I like my airsoft to be authentic and this is a little down for me but then who'd notice that 0.5kg difference? So I'm satisfied. The wood however... See for it yourself:

Before I opened it the box arts rifle look exactly like what I would expect. But after I opened it, the wood stock really look and feel like plastic to me. See the above pic for a comparison of the box art & the product. I also tried cocking the thing and you know what, it's really hard to push in, I'm not kidding. Alright my eyes aren't helping if I keep typing I'll be sleeping on my keyboard so I'll finish this tomorrow ta-ta~!
