They have excellent customer service, and offer a package worth $290 for $245 that includes three 600 round metal AK47 mags, and 2 bags of quality bbs. I looked into the price of this combo, and it would actually be worth over $300 on some other sites. Most of the gun is metal, and the parts that aren't have a strong ABS plastic. I got this gun with the combo and I would recommend you doing the same. If you don't want to spend $245 then you could get just the gun for $185. If you are interested, there is more info on the site.
Thanks a ton. I have looked at this and wondered if it was a low quality gun to justify the price difference but your advice is most reassuring
