An update on the finish and design. I got a good look at some more real steel unassembled RAS units today.
The finish on the clones is consistant with the real steel design.
The area where the gas tube passes through at the free float tube at the barrel nut is slightly different. Also the pins that mate between the barrel nut and the free float tube itself are slightly shorter on the barrel end.
Weight and general construction of the clone is about as close to being an exact copy as anyone could reasonably expect. Very impressive for an airsoft product.
