For many months, Umarex has hinted at an upcoming GBBR M27 throughout the various airsoft news websites and forums. Many have speculated that this is nothing more than a fancy upgraded HK416 and because it was outsourced, manufactured by VFC, many have decided to take a wait and see approach to this weapon. The track record for VFC's GBBR M4 and HK416 have not been well received. Many have discussed about the stress fracture on the 1st gen BOLTS and premature wearing down of firing pins because hammer struck the firing pin too hard when dry firing. Let me start this review process with the following caveats:■I have been shooting airsoft since 1996
■Mostly Tokyo Marui based *STOCK* guns (including: Desert Eagles Hard Kick2, MK23 SOCOMM Non blow back, PSG-1, Aug Steyr Military. etc...)
■GBB pistos includes (KSC G17, Maruzen P99, WE Baby Hi Cappa, KSC MK23, etc...)
■This is my FRIST GBBR ever and until recently (last 8 months) didn't even realize GBBR has become a reality.
I have no pre-conceived knowledge on the PROS or CONS of Brand X vs. Brand Y vs. Brand Z. The review you are about to read is from my POV and so feel free to take what information you have received with a grain of salt.
Inital Impressions -
I had to order this unit from one of the Hong Kong airsoft shops and it had to be delivered in seperate packages to ensure successful delivery and avoiding seizure by U.S. Customs, I live in NY. The first part of the order came in first with the gorgeous hardcover case and upper reciever. The upper receiver is absolutely STUNNING the HK trades on the SIDE of the receiver to the markings on the RAIL, down to the HK logo etched right onto the GAS bolt is truly a magnificent piece of engineering/art! The lower receiver arrived about two weeks later and again the same level of detailing came across for the lower receiver as well. The fire selector is ambidextrous but plastic(?) too hard to tell, but it is CRISP and you can hear/feel the *SNAP* of the fire selector switch as it is changed from MODE to MODE. The adjustable stock is a modified HK(?) crane stock and is great new design because the lever is FLUSH with the stock, recessed and pistol grip and stock have has *hidden* compartments for storing small items.
I quickly attached the upper and lower receivers together and locked the body pins in place, pulled the charging handle back and cheated the BOLT catch lever so the bolt locked back even without magazine in receiver. The grin on my FACE was stretched wide and my glimmered with lust when the BOLT release was pressed and the BOLT slammed HOME. WOW! Why oh why did I wait so long before buying a GBBR?!??
I have already fired about 40+ mags have been fired so far and I have yet to encounter any major issues with the unit. The unit chrono in about 425FPS on the initiial first few shots with a fully charged magazine using .25 precision BBs. No noticible/perceptable drop in power/speed untl about 12~14 rounds later. The last few rounds of BBs clocked in around 345~360 FPS. On a full (over 45 secs) of GREEN gas load, the magazine was able to completely empty 35+ BBs and then still able to dry fire for at least another 15 before needing any additional gas. After hurricase Sandy blew through NY, two large trees have fallen across my back yard and effectively destroying my outdoor test range so accuracy tests currently not available just yet. Ditto on testing HOP UP. The FPS was gathered from shooting in my basesment but isn't long enough to test accuracy of unit. I did bring the M27 into one of my local Airsoft dealers and they were loving the unit. One guys was so happy that unlike the KWA LM4, the charging handle will allow for power charging unit. On this unit just like in Real Steel, by pulling the charging handle back even gun is on saftey, the BOLT will simply be released and return to close position. The two techs on site were impressed because the KWA version MUST always use the BOLT release button to release the bolt.
I have reviewed most of the posts on this forum and others and have gleaned that this unit suffers from perceived poor craftsmanship and spooty eliability marks this unit with only a very SMALL handfull of users who are truly interested. I have spoken to some of you already and have a good idea of what you are looking for. Please see the attached pictures and let me know if they are adequate and I will try to answer as best as I can.
Sorry for the indirect link to pics, the pics were all over the file size restrictions.for Arnie's... See URL below and do let me know if you should have any additonal questions/concerns.
Easily one of the BEST gun purcahses I have ever taken. Unikt shoots hard and rewards users with a CRISP recoil letting you know that one of your bbs is heading down range and should be hitting you target. The unit was already a nice gun as is but when it comes in a HARD CASE and speed loader included, it just made this unit that much more fun special to collect and own.
