I have 3 friends with them and 2 have been troublefree, the third one .... not so much.
so that is 33% chance of getting a lemon. not good. i wonder how the WE AEG will hold up. personally i think someone just getting into airsoft needs to dip to the hip and get a reliable gun. one that will work good right out of the box and save themselves some heartache. I would never show up to a game with just a KA in hand. I just dont trust them.
