I have a Kraken. I must have gotten lucky because I have easily put 10,000 rounds through the thing using a large 9.6v in the past year or so and it shows no sign of dying. The externals however are falling apart
. I lost the butt pad for the end of the stock, the sight broke off and I have a few creaks and bumps hear and there. The thing is a machine though and just does not want to die. This being said It does not even close close tot the performance and quality of my G&G and SRC.
