Was this version 1 or version 2? Version two has a V3 gearbox with metal gears. I'm going to take a stab in the dark and assume it was version one that had the polycarb gears, right?

Both are exactly the same, kinda

V2 has "enhanced" internals, but APS being APS, they suck. V1 had a poly piston and shody (metal) gears. V2 has a decent nylon piston and "better" gears, though they are sub-par with everything on the market. If you need replacement parts, the gun takes regular AK V3 everything aside from the right-side transfer plate.

Nozzle is a standard AK and hop-up is a copy of the ProWin AK. You can actually install a ProWin in case you need to replace it.

Outerbarrel is a M4-CQB 10" barrel. Any other M4 barrel will fit IF they are slim near the rear. Real barrels are not made like that but AEG's usually are slim under the handguard to fit batteries. In the APS UAR, the trigger and fire selector control rods take that space.

Battery space is not that bad. It fits any "mini" pack or LiPo that fit in the same space. Really easy to install too, there is a trap door at the front just over the barrel.

The gun is a PAIN to take apart however. I had to cut the barrel to be able to open one (the fire selector control rod was undone from factory).

Best "option" is to turn the plastic nut around the barrel 1/4 turn and pull is forward. Then follow the rest of the instructions from the manual.

The "modification" you have to do is cut the plastic in the mag well to clear the "bump" on top of M4 mags. The cutout is too small and the section that houses the latch/retainer on M4 mags does not fit. As other said, 2 minutes mod.

So would you recommend against this gun? You're information is the first real negative feedback I've read, and I've read 7 to 10 reviews as well as watched 3 review videos on it. Is it a good gun to start with, or should I be looking at something else, in your opinion?

I don't understand what you mean by p*. I searched the forums and couldn't find anything on it. Could you kindly elaborate?

So basically it's a gas conversion from the AEG. I understand now. I read that running the 11.1v battery was too powerful for this gun. I'll probably rock an 8.4v if/when I get the gun. I think it will be an OK starter.

Hey DarkAura.
I think we share the same tastes in rifles .
For the FAMAS, there are Youtube videos out there that show you how to mod M4 mags to feed into the Famas. A FAMAS would be my first choice rifle, but I'm kind of hesitant about Cybergun.
The UAR, I've heard some good things about the rifle, but the company that makes them has a shaky reputation (A.P.S. = A Piece of Sh*t). I personally don't know, as I only own a JG G36C, but that's what reviews say.
A TAR would be awesome, but would require modding in order for it to have a long life. There's another thread dedicated to that here: http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthr...t=91017&page=2
Anyways, let me know which one you choose (you seem to be leaning towards the UAR), but review and PICS please!
Many thanks.

Look what's at #1 for accuracy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rASTwDoEHu4

I went down to Toronto Airsoft today and got to shoulder and fire the UAR. The body is solid without any creaking, very thick plastic/nylon/whatever. And damn is this thing accurate. On Semi I could hit all 5 of their 4 inch targets at 30 feet, without needing an added sighting mechanism (Red Dot, ACOG, what have you). It was a breeze. Very easy to point this thing. One thing that was brought to my attention was the long trigger pull compared to some other weapons. It didn't bother me while firing and was not noticeable. I think I will most definitely picking this up as my first weapon, and later on moving up to the G&G F2000.

The sales rep also mentioned that he's only had 4 of these guns come back in for repairs thus far, all of them with a different issue. Nothing consistently wrong.
