Hm, I might just put this on my list. It looks like my L96 sniper had a lovechild with a G36. Shorty's idea of replacing the outer barrel with a silencer sounds even better since I could use my gemtec blackside. I'm just impressed with the styling of it, so I might just get this instead of some gas guns I was thinking about. As far as it being BE, I've heard both good and bad so it might be a bit of a gamble, but if your thinking of gutting it anyway when it fails then I would say go for it since 100 isnt bad at all.
