I had one a while back, Its an ok gun but as people in the Sniper clinic saw, the shell catch lever on the bolt assembly wears very quickly (Preventing Shell Ejection which is EXTREMELY Frustrating) , and easily damages the shells. The shells ARE silver, there are no bronze colored ones for the Dboys and the Marushin Shells dont work on the Dboys Either as they are 8mm.
Shell Ejection looks great for wall hangers and shit, but as Paul (Sha Do) Saw during the clinic, I came to the clinic with 30 shells, I walked out with 25. Thats AFTER Someone found 6 of them somewhere on the ground. I Tried Shell Catches, But noone makes one for the Kar98, Only Generic Ones and they interfere with the Loading of the Gun.
As for the gun, It was fairly consistant, but she always shot to my right a little (consistantly) and FPS (Due to each of the shells) was somewhat inconsistant as the rubber seals on the shells were not very good. The Aluminum on the shells damaged EXTREMELY easily and ive thrown out over 12 shells that were 100% unusable due to damage from either dropping them on the ground (thats enough to damage the aluminum shells) and Jams as the shells dont always pop into the chamber properly and slam against the receiver instead of in the hole which completely damages the front end of the shell so the BB does not fit inside properly. Ive also had BB's wedged inside the shell that will not fire as the damaged shells pinch the BB inside.
Overall, i wasnt quite impressed. She was a great wall hanger, but the wood was cheap quality and damaged very easily (very soft wood stained and laquered)
