Save yourself the hassle and money (unless you have lots $$ then go crazy) and pick up a good AEG like a G&G for around $300. The final range's out of the box are pretty much the same, and you'll be good to play any type of game with that.
so you're saying it IS or it ISN'T worth the money, bcuz it really isn't
