i GOT THIS THE CHRISTMAS AFTER IT CAME OUT AS A PRESSIE AND I AM WELL IMPRESSED, EVEN FOR THE 40 OR SO QUID PAID FOR IT! I GAVE THE EDUCATION VALUE A THREE BECAUSE IT IS DEFINITELY NOT A TEACHING TOY BUT YOU CAN LEARN ABOUT THE FLYWHEELS AND MECHANICS. THE NOISE WITH NEW BATTERIES IS loud loud loud, but it quietens down after a while. i have the pyragon 2protons and this and the ranges these guns get are soaring over that of the n-strike range, and the xlr discs dont hurt unless they catch you out in the eye!(ouch)Overall i will give this gun a solid 9/10 because at the current £20 pound price range, it is incredible value and you get 1x multi pattern electronic scope, which isnt that useful-a storage space in the back for another clip, a 20-disc clip included and a brilliant toy weapon which will give you the ultimate power in a nerf war!! a definite must buy!, the onlky downside is the weight of the 6 d or c size batteries that this gun uses, but even these will last you ages, i have'nt had to change batteries the whole year i have had this gun, get it now!!!!!!!
