when i first got this gone i loved it, but in time all i had was problems. i had it chroned and it was borderline at 11.8 flb and the recoil is rediculous making it very inaccurate. also the silencer moves and after every shot the zero moves!!!
overall im very dissapointed with this gun and wouldnt reccomend itt. (read more)
