I don't see any reviews for G&P producs, so here is one.

1)Manufacturer, Model Name
-G&P SPR/A
2) Date Obtained
- late in season of 2005 (sorry can not be specific, have had it for a long time.
3) Initial Cost
-$650ish I think
4) New or Used
-New
5) Mechanical Problems
- Worked perfectly for 2 day long games, then began to fire full auto while on Semi. Then stopped working all together. Replaced tappet plate, and then selector switch plate. All other mechanical items seemed intact, but gear box would still not fully work. After working with it for a bit, I decide to take it to a game and it ceased function after about 4 mags. Just stopped working, this problem may have been electrical in nature(although it was apperent that the mechanical problems had not fully gone away). I got tired of trying to deal with it so I just picked up a Systema M120 complete mech box, and put that in, now it runs perfect.
-An additional note, The electrical wiring is very thin. The insulation on the wiring is also very thin, and may wear or break on its own where it is rubbing or up against something. I would suggest replacement with some heavier wiring. This thin wiring may have been the cause of my second failure due to grounding out.
6) Esthetic Problems
- No problems at all
7) Rounds fired between failures
- 1000
8) Changes to Internals and Externals (upgrades, mods, dates)
- Systema M120 complete mech box. Added Paq4, Harris Bypod, NSN ACOG /w Doctor Optic, Tango down vertical grip.
I have not played a game on new mech box yet, only tested mags in house.
9) Resale Date and Value if applicable.
- N/A
10)Notes and Comments (Optional)
To do with the Mechanical aspect. After replacing items which were in question (tappet plate and selector switch both Promethius I believe) All other internals seemed intact, as well as shimming and condition of all parts. After the mech box was put back together the nozzle seemed “sticky”. It would move back, but then not move forward without being pulled. The tappet plate was then sanded down a bit to thin it out in hopes of allowing for a bit more movement but not allowing it to stick. Very little was accomplished through this, but it did move on its own. The selector switch plate was a bit stiff while switching between SA/SE/A, but still worked. I decided to try it out at a game, but after only a few mags it just stopped working. No mechanical sound at all, no sound of the motor or gears trying to move. This is why I assumed it was electrical/wiring in nature. I did not really try to figure out what was wrong with it after that. I just did a WGC order and ordered a Systema M120 complete gear box. Problems solved.

-G&P full stock, it is near completely hollow. Even with a large battery, it rattles around inside. May want to put some foam, or something else in the stock around the battery to prevent it from moving/rattling around while moving. It is kinda annoying.

1) Make and Model
-- M4A1, TM
2) Date Purchased
-- September 2004
3) Cost
-- $525 + battery
4) New/Used?
-- New, however I have my suspicions as to whether this is true or not.
5) Mechanical Problems
-- 2006-Present - Trigger jams while shooting in semi. Switching to full and shooting a few rounds solves problem and semi works again. Fails every 500-800 rounds
6) Esthetic Problems
-- August - September 2005 (not sure of the exact date) One rear tab split and broke. Attempted to repair. Initially worked but broke again at the end of October 2005. "Tempoary" repair (I did this and was planning on purchasing another M4 but have not gotten around to it b/c college came first) by putting a bolt in place of pin and tightening just beyond finger tight. (my be the cause of my fire select problem)
7) Rounds Fired Between Failures
-- approx 15000 (if memory serves me correct, I will check and edit)
8) Changes to Internals & Externals
-- N/A
9) Resale Date and Value
-- Never
10)Notes and Comments
-- I love my M4 and I will always have one in my collection. It works great despite the fire select and reciever tab problem. Whether using irons or aimpoint I can hit a 8.5"x11" target (piece of paper), everytime, all the time.

1) Manufacturer, Model Name (name of weapon on box, and weapon replicated if different from model name)
- Western Arms Beretta Perfect Version
2) Date Obtained
- 2005
3) Initial Cost
- $350
4) New or Used
- New
5) Mechanical Problems (Gearbox issues, hopup issues.. basically functional performance related -- supply date of issue)
- Slowly developed a "full-auto" problem due to a worn-down sear
- While on "safe", trigger is able to still activate the hammer, although not enough to actually fire the weapon. Even so, a physical barrier blocking the firing pin would prevent his occurence
6) Esthetic Problems (Paint damage, cracks in body, loose parts.. physical construction related -- supply date of issue)
- None
7) Rounds fired between failures (think how many bags of BB's used before it failed. If no failure, list rounds fired up to this point)
- 1000 rounds
8) Changes to Internals and Externals (upgrades, mods, dates)
- None
9) Resale Date and Value if applicable.
- Sold it shortly after developing full auto problem
10)Notes and Comments (Optional)
- Great looking-and-feeling gun, but overall not very accurate nor reliable.
- WA's valving system allows the gun to be fired upside down for those "John Woo" moments, although would be useless if hop-up was enabled.
- I've owned 6 WA Beretta PV's, all of them eventually developing the same problem
- Impresses the chicks, especially if you have 4 of them.
