Just bought the TAC R71 two tone airsoft in blue for a great price on the site. Must say I am a bit disapointed as the range and actual range on the website is falsely advertised. it's not 60 meters that the bb travels, but the speed is supposedly 60m/s meters per second. Which in this guns case is also untrue. Measured it myself with a fully loaded battery and tape measure in 0m/s conditions in side my flat whilst targeting at an increased angle as well (for added distance gain) and it came up to barely 17meters. Without the decorative silencer! Plus the screw that holds the front handle surprisingly fell out at one point as well. Switching between semi and full-auto modes is a bother as well since the switch does not work properly either. You have to go to ''safety'' from ''full-auto'' and from there only to ''semi-auto'' to be able to use it. Dispatch from the site was well great though. Managed to botch the initial order online and order .12m pellets instead of the advertised .20, but once got in contact the adviser was very helpful and understanding and changed them up for .20's for me. So all in all The Lads responsible for the site and shop - GREAT JOB, but the makers of the gun..... Not So Much! Would not recommend for a friend since i've had bb gun pistols that pack A LOT MORE PUNCH that this ''Airsoft Rifle'' - I'd rate it as 3/10.
