You have to keep in mind the price you pay for this carbine. With that said it is a great gun. Maybe not the most accurate, but it's built like a tank. Everything that is metal has a great blueing on it or is painted, polymer is of decent quality, dual extractor claws, super heavy receiver with a long cycle, etc. It's a little on the clunky side but it'll feed, fire, & extract even the cheapest dirtiest ammo.
