While the shell ejecting guns look cool, I would be too worried about losing the shells in the field. Then again, I like to stay on the move. If you are the type of player that camps out and stays mostly stationary, that may not be a concern.

Just remember the reloading time and cost of those shells (about $20 per every 5 shells.)

The Dboys/Boyi K98 is a royal POS, i looked into getting one a while back as a classy sniper platform. Doesn't take standard parts of any kind, shell ejecting feature will cost you A LOT of money in replacement shells, the barrel is actually 2 pieces and plastic so the accuracy is horrendous, and since it doesnt take standard parts, you cant replace it with a normal one And as far as I know, Dboys customer service is pretty much non-existent, so if something breaks you're out of luck. They're mostly a low-end AEG manufacturer with the exception of a couple M4s and their SCAR-L

I must say I am a little surprised how quickly that escalated given that he was allowed to keep the thread, we were showing support and trying to prevent anyone from harassing him or otherwise causing disruption on the forum.
