Shipping is twice the price of the gun!!! Don’t know a thing about it but I can tell you this: use the heaviest 6mm rounds you can find, they make aluminum balls for airsoft guns, the heaver rounds will be more accurate. I’ve had my far share of airsoft guns, ok only for, but I’ve done experiments with around 6 different guns, and the one thing that will screw your shot up the most is holding the gun at an angle, how to explain it with out pictures… ok when you look down the gun and have the sights lined up, assuming your using the iron sights, and you were to place a spirit level on top of the gun running width wise if the thing isn’t level the round’s going to curve off at an angle because the “hop-up” system puts back-spin on the projectile causing it to “hook” upwards if the gun is held off level the hook is in a different direction(That’s why I hate the hop-up system.). Understand? You probably already knew this but I’m sure some people don’t.

well the shipping cost me alot because the gun was so cheap, I saw teh same gun costing $30 with cheap shipping, so it all evens out.
And worse case scenario it breaks, I can salvage parts from it.

And as for teh hop up, Thats not a problem, I have a relatively uniform shooting posture.

One thing about hop-up is, if you have a cross wind you can angle the gun so that the curve is to your advantage.

Plastic guts… man, I hate plastic gun, plastic and guns don’t mix, I don’t even like synthetic stocks, why can’t they make an all metal gun to shoot the plastic BBs? The whole dang worlds made of styrene! I hate plastic! I’d much rather use metal to make my cannons, but I can’t afford it.

I've dealt with this before. Check the shipping label when it comes and calculate how much it would cost. More than likely it will be less than you paid. File a complaint on eBay for jacking the price. You should get a refund.
