Crosman Pulse R73 AEG Black Airsoft Rifle
Do Not Buy
I took my family to Bass Pro in hopes of getting my son a nice airsoft rifle. This one looked really nice and wasn't the cheapest one so I figured it would a good one. I was so wrong. We got home and put it together, only to find out that you can't use the scope. Since it is the hopper for the bb's it has a tiny hole through it and when you look through it, it just makes everything blurry. You can't take the scope off to use the sights so you have to just point and shoot. The bb's go everywhere except straight. I will be making a trip back to Bass Pro to return it asap.

You get what you pay for
I bought a pair of these a few weeks ago for my son and I to play with the neighborhood kids. We have had ALOT of fun and have found peace in the neighborhood through superior firepower and tactics.
Accuracy: You will not be able to shoot the wings off a sand flea at 100 yards, or even ten, but as an old Marine, the mechanics of sight picture/sight alignment kick in and you can easily walk in to the target just like in the old days with tracers.. and, with little fear of permamently maiming your kids... I can put consistantly in to a 3" hole (bird feeder) at about 25 feet. From the hip.
Jamming: Hasn't happend. Unlike the M16A1 I was issued to run through the jungle with. Occasionally the hopper can't keep up, or more than likely while snooping and pooping the BB's shift.. it just takes a quick shake to get them back into the lower receiver.
Value: It depends on what you want to do. Play with Kids (It is a "toy" after all), teach them some basics of gun handling etc.... PERFECT. If you are looking to be John Rambo and take out a tank division... Get the ones that cost 5x as much...
Oh... and if you were army... sorry... you'll never be accurate with even the most expensive version... ;-}

Do Not Get This!
This was my first rifle, and while it has a good feel and a two postion stock, the acuracy is terrible on the one function, automatic. If you pull the triger once very quickly it can be semi auto. The bb hopper is in the scope so one can't aim with it properly, the hopper won't n feed properly every once in awhile but nothing a little shaking can't fix. Over all this gun is terrible do not purchase!
