Well, it looks cool. Silencer should be useful.

Very good for the price if it shoots straight and with as much punch as it says it has.

Something's not right there... an AEG shouldn't be that cheap. I'd look into it a little more before buying.

Also, there needs to be a half inch of bright orange paint on the tip of the barrel, according to federal law.

Don't mean to be negative... just sayin... I'd look around a bit more.

That's well worth the price, really. It's nowhere near the level of the ICS MP5SD6 I bought recently, or indeed a TM MP5, and it's probably not going to be terribly accurate at a distance, but it's probably a good up close weapon. It's probably not going to shoot beyond 25 meters.

Regarding the other one, The XM8 is a SMALLER size than the "real" XM8 and only a springer. So it's probably worse. And it's definitely lying about the FPS.

You mean this XM8? http://www.speedytoys.com/shop/item.asp?itemid=311

The field we will be playing in is pretty big, maybe I can get a pic for the field later...

That one is indeed a full-scale one that's porbably better than the MP5, but alas, it's out of stock. Also, the real steel XM8 program has apparently been cancelled.

That sucks. What weapon can you recommend to a Noob that is good for range combat, and only around 70$.

Afraid I don't know of one other than that MP5. A Well AK47 MAY be okay, but I'm afraid the cheapest AEG I've ever held was a P90... :-\
