This gun really owns every cheap AEG. I had this gun for few years now, and now I am going to upgrade it to shoot 400fps because Marui is perfect brand to upgrade. My gun has seen about 30k bb and was working like new and shooting extremely accurate. Great gun for this price.

As the owner of a second hand 97 I can say with the utmost confidence these things are absolutely brilliant for players who like bullpups and/or a realistic feel to a gun.
This AEG feels sturdy and tough, the entire thing being made entirely of steel and the same polymer as the real steel qbz-95 family it comes from. As a bullpup the gearbox is set at the back and as a result the inner barrel starts 1 or 2 cm from the ejection port up to the flash hider. The setup makes it heavier than you would expect but beautifully balanced. (You can one hand it no problem whatsoever).
The iron sights are adjustable and theres even an adjustable gas plug at the front for people who want to boast about realism. The only thing I wish about this AEG is that realsword had replicated the G variant of the QBZ, which has a selector setup similar to the TAR-21 instead of the G18. (think awesome pistolgrip position rather than silly back end dial)
Performance wise this gun is just perfect, reaching absurd ranges for its size. Realsword hop-ups don't appear to have any trouble out the box and this AEG is great for outdoor games as well as cqb. The only downside is the size restrictions for batteries, but I have found small 7.4V lipos that are the perfect size.
Overall the summary of my review says it all: This AEG takes STANAGs, can be used both in and outdoors effectively (god bless bullpups) is durable and just a lot of fun to use. Highly recommended
