Now...before you read this. if you don't like the whole idea of a m14 with rails and want to post things like: "OMG you manage to turn a m14 into a m4" Please just leave this...
Anyway, back to the review.
It came with a tube protecting it and instructions
The unit seems to be made accurately. All the rails looked well made.
installing was easy althou the instructions weren't very good. you basically remove the original heat shield. clip one of the part into the receiver. Slip the little piece of metal sticking out in the front of the RAS into the front. put the space at the back, put all the screws in and you are done.
It holds really solid onto the receiver, no wobble whatsoever. The only problem is tht the rear part of the RAS, the little bit of rail tht is used for mounting scopes, it is a little low, so it's not quite level with the front bit. But it's not that much and for airsoft it's probably not going to affect anything. Just put a little electric tape at the bottom of the rear scope mount and it's fixed.
To my suprise the whole RAS is only 280g, it feels pretty much the same as the M14 with the plastic heat shield. It definitely not going to weight you down.
The right side of the RAS had trademarks
It seems to be accurate except the fact that armament is spelled wrong. One thing I am not sure of is whether the serial is unique or not..
At the front of the RAS:
There is a slot cut into the ribs so that you can still use the iron sights.
My M14 is installed with a Prometheus 509mm tightbore and it's now pretty accurate. I can do a 1.5 inch group at 10m outdoor. However the slots that are cut on the barrel tht fixes it into the hopup unit is actualy different with the m14. So I had to cut new slots myself to get it to fit.
Another thing is tht the front of the plastic body doesn't seem to be strong enough for a harris bipod. The spring is too stiff and it doesnt feel rit when you unfold the legs out.
Anway I am happy with the RAS and the tm M14
