This was my first blaster and no regrets at all. Being a little bit different inside to a standard gen 8 box it made it a little tricky to get the right motor and metal trigger! But after all that its come to be a fantastic blaster! Metal gears from the get go didn't have to do much to get this thing pumping on a 11v battery! Ive got all the metal bits you can get for this blaster and the thing now feels very solid! Very happy!
I got this blaster almost a year ago when I started this sport, and it served me well. With the high FPS out of the box, and massive potential for upgrades, it is definitely one of the best beginner blasters.
I'm very new to the hobby and wanted something basic, but reliable. The M4 Scout delivers, and although it wasn't perfect, the few faults with it were quite minor and overall; the blaster works just fine. For the price, you really can't go wrong.
Straight out of the box it was shooting much higher fps then it was rated at with a 280fps average.
With a hop up 11.1 battery upgrade and a drum MAG it makes it a really good gun. Will be looking at upgrading internals in the near future but overall very happy
