You can really tell when an item is one third the cost of the regular models how much you should expect from it. And in my experience the expectations I had for this gun were blown out of the water when I tested it out. After I got it it had to have the motor reseated but I opened the mech-box and shimed it correctly just to inspect and found the same parts as the OP. Having it come with a 6.04 tight/narrow barrel is really nice, and the thing loves .28 bbs to punch through brush.
In close I completely disagree with Ripperman79 in every aspect. The gun feels decent for plastic parts and the SIR is a made of plastic with metal parts. The internals are great for beginners and veterans that don't expect G&P or even G&G workmanship. Buy it if its under $300 and keep it for renting out and you can easily make your money back!
