Id say once you spend the money make it worth it... I dont think these guns are worth the price that are intact. Save up alittle more and go with either TM, ICS or any other reputable company.
But nice review!
Yeah the looks of this first batch of CYMA's sucks but I don't mind it one bit, for this price the preformance of this gun is awesome ... I'm currently getting a stock TM MP5 Inner Barrel and maybe a stronger motor and this gun will preform like a moderately upgraded TM. For half the price. Heck if you want the gun NOW without the paint just buy it off of A&A in the ChinaSoft section.
