I was a little skeptical at first about this, but I discovered there was no reason to be! It arrived actually before the estimated arrival date. It was a really fun build, the numbered bags making it easier since only opening one at a time keeps your area a bit less cluttered. The actual building of it was a bit painful at times because of the kinds of pieces and, since they're new, they didn't always easily fit together. I am very impressed by this thing, especially the fact that it actually shoots! I wouldn't recommend firing it at anyone because it is, after all, a plastic piece that actually fires with surprising force. There is a bit of a weak spot where the butt/stock connects to the main barrel and action and the mechanical aspect with the rubber bands is easier with tweezers and can be a little confusing. There is also one rubberband size that I think would be better if it was a little bit smaller so it works better. Other than a few small problems, this was an overall great buy!
