The Walther G22 Special Operations airsoft rifle is the perfect example of quality and cost. With ranges comparable to many of the higher priced guns, this dual mode weapon allows for either manual cocking or the use of 6AA batteries.

Through my experience, I have found that the NiCad batteries used in most of todays standard airsoft rifles allow for very little usage before needing to be recharged, as well as a short shelf life. The G22's use of AA batteries allows users to quickly switch out power sources in the middle of a firefight, without the need of special tools. The added benefit of manual cocking means that if there is no time to change the batteries, you are never left without a firearm.

The G22 also sports dual 28 round clips, one as a primary and another loaded into a storage bay on the rifles stock. On fully automatic, the clips run out very fast, thought if you consider the accuracy of the weapon this becomes acceptable.

The only thing that I would say could improve this gun is a longer stock as well as putting the cocking mechanism on the farther up on the barrel and on the left side.

As an exact duplicate, this airsoft gun performs up to the Walther standards and is suitable for any airsoft afficianado novice to expert.
