Prior to purchasing this gun I had shot several other semi-auto .22lr rifles, including the Sig 522, so I knew what I was getting to and what to expect. I've shot thousands of rounds through this, I had some duds that didn't go off, and maybe once or twice a round failed to eject, but 99.9% the gun ran flawlessly.



The gun is super lightweight, you could hold this and shoot for several hours with no fatigue. The design is mostly polymer and feels kinda rough to hold, I added a fore-grip and that really made a difference, I like the fact that it is mostly aluminum and polymer because like I said, makes it very lightweight, since recoil is not a problem, you don't want a heavy gun at .22lr. With proper grip and sights the gun shoots as accurate as you can shoot, I added a red dot with low mount, I believe that is the most fun optic to shoot it with.

The only beef I really have with the gun that can't be easily resolved is that the design makes it a little annoying to clean, since .22lr are notorious for getting your gun very dirty I don't understand why they couldn't make a few changes in the design to make it more user friendly. The bolt carrier is a little annoying to get into place, and lower assembly has alot of hard to get to places where gunk builds up, but this is more of an issue if you are anal like me and wants to have your gun looking like new after thousands of rounds, if you just want to clean it to keep it runnin you wont find this an issue at all.

There is not much else to say, if you are in the market for a .22lr military style rifle and you got the money to pick one of these babies up, do it, you wont regret it. Make sure to get a few of extra magazines, you will run through them very fast !
