    Fun to shoot. The pull is made for smaller people so if your 6' you would want to change the buttstock to be more comfortable without body armor. I have the Tapco furniture. M4 stock, saw pistol grip, galil handguard w/pistol grip, and the ak74 style muzzle break that works better than the slash cut compensator that came with it. Accuracy is ok at less than 250 yards. Very reliable in any condition. Semi auto models need a simple mod to fix the trigger slap.
