Ok just to cover some info regarding the Lorcin G3 SAS from airsplat that everyone is asking about.This is what You will get when You order one.
The whole gun is plastic except for the barrel.Its a pretty heavy gun weighing about 7 pounds with the battery.This gun uses a 10v battery that takes about 12 hours to charge using the charger that came with the gun.
It comes with two 350 round self-winding magazines.Here is how it works.
Im not much of an arstist but You get the point.Piece A slides forward and back as You fire the gun and it makes piece B go up and down to wind the magazine.I get a good bit of misfires when firing full auto and semi so Im not to big on the selfwinding.
The misfires hurt the guns performance rating as does its accuracy.With no hopup to adjust Your hands are tied as to what You can do.Heavier BB's are an option but I wont have that info until later today.So far Ive only shot .12's in this gun.Im guessing the FPS is in the 300 range.I shoot through both sides of a popcan at point blank range.In the field BB's travel about 150 feet before dropping.The gun has locked up on me a couple times from double feeds and somehow BB's get inside the gun while playing.When it locked up I just switch to auto and it fires.MY ICS m4 does the same thing.
For $60 its the most powerful Lpeg You can buy but the accuracy needs work.Maybe a tightbore barrel will help.Long battery charges also keep You out of action for a long time once the battery dies.ON the flip side the battery last for a long time.Ill give this a C rating.The power of this gun keeps it favorable but alot of negatives come with it.
UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE;
Ok I got some .20's today and wow what a difference.The G3 definatly had the upper hand today as I found myself being outgunned on numerous occasions.The G3 was way more accurate than with the .12's even with a slight breeze.To my amazement the range really didnt drop any with the heavier BB.Im moving The rating from a C to a B.The gun still had the occasional lockup but switching the selector switch quickly solved the problem.Something else I found out about the mag is if you load it full of BB's and plunge it with your finger it will spit a BB out.If you do this until about 7-10 BB's come out You will get almost no misfires.Its kinda like priming it if You will.I will rework this review as I find out more,Stay tuned.
