It’s not hard to find, no. What I’m saying it’s not that big of a gap, and barely noticable (for the normal people among us). Just get one in hand, and you’ll see. (Or don’t, and focus on the manufacturers you do like ;p) About the magazine, he states it’s not a problem with new magazines but it develops over time, so I’ll have to wait and see of those marks start to appear in the future. (But I doubt it, as there are currently no marks at that spot. Even after many, many, mag inserts the past week.) On to some more interesting things of the 553: I noticed the replica needed serious maintenance right out the box. I had to clean and ‘super lube’ the whole thing. There was a fine dust (machining leftovers?) everywhere on the internals. Even the innerbarrel was dirty. That was a bit of a shocker. But as one should, I always take the whole thing apart to get to know the working and re-lube etc.. Once cleaned and freshly lubed, it runs smooth as silk. I’ve shot it the last two days (after HPA-tapping the mag and binding a g&g aeg SIG hicap to it). And it shoots pretty accurate on the 40-50 meter range (0.28gr). Keeping in mind the whole thing needs to run in a bit (the hopup rubber), I’m not looking to upgrade the barrel or anything yet. I’ll probably run this for CQB only, but it looks like it can reach out pretty far. I’ll have another run with more bb weights and longer range next weekend.
