I have an Ares AW .338 "gas system", and so far I have been really happy with it. There are a few "quirks" to deal with, but nothing serious a little machining won't help.
- the bolt stop wears out easily, and is difficult to remove. (it is however a small piece that would be easy and cheap to have machined from steel)
- the gun shoots over 500 FPS with 0.20g BBs on propane, and does not lose enough FPS when running a heavier round. (it would be simple to Make a pressure control valve for it)
- this bastard is heavy for a sniper. (it's not really a con, as this gun is very realistic; but you almost "need" a bi-pod. The stand and shoot would be difficult)
- the cost of the magazines is high (like $70 or more)
