I bougt one for my son last summer. It's a piece of crap. Battery died after about 5 charges. Shoots all over the place with at about 200 fps with .12 (what's recommended) and anything heavier basically rolls out of the barrel. And also keep in mind that the Boys gun is 2/3 scale, so significantly smaller than the real thing. Unless you're under 4 feet tall, it's too small for you.
