Thought I would show you all my first full metal blaster. It is an MK18 Pro Gold from M4a1 gel blasters online store.
When first opening the box I heard something metal fall out, but luckily I found it
Easy fix with some epoxy. The front receiver bolt also want pushed right in, but again, easy fix.
I found the inner barrel was quite interesting. Inner diameter measured at about 7.4mm but the gold color threw me a bit. I think it’s still alloy? The thing I don’t like is that you can turn the inner barrel by hand so not a good seal with the t piece.
The charge handle and fire select have an amazing feeling, very smooth and feels really strong.
The blaster feels solid in hand with great weight from front to back.
So far I have only put about 1 mag through it, as I’m having issues with my gen8. I used AKA gels grown to about 7.2-7.3mm and it fired really well. Fps is about 290-300 and accuracy was quite good over about 15 metres but that was without a hop up.
One thing that concerned me a bit was the noise it made when firing. Sounded a bit like an impact drill driver so I assume it is hammering quite hard?
