Customer Reviews 27 Customer Reviews Average 4.7 out of 5 Kent A This has to be the most fun I have had shooting a gun! 90 rounds and not even a hint of a jam and half of those was rapid fire. I think this may have just become my favorite gun. 2 weeks ago Michael D I ordered the M85 back in Feb 2014 via the 90 day layaway option which is an easy and seamless way to purchase items on Buds Website. I could not pass this up as it was being advertised for $399.00 (cash price). I also went ahead and added the lifetime warranty option for $19.95 so when it was all said and done my final price was $435.64 (including credit/debit card payment charges).
I finally had a chance to take it to the range during my lunch hour and it did not disappoint. It fires well and the only FTLs I had is with the magazine that came with it. I suggest just throwing that one in the trash. I purchased 3 additional Tapco magazines and they worked great! No FTEs or FTLs. It was very easy to adjust the iron sites and I had no problem being fairly constant in my groupings at 25 yards within a supported and non supported firing stance.
Due to the fact that this little jewel only has a 10 inch barrel, I am impressed with its accuracy with just using the iron sights. I plan to purchase the quad rail that Midwest Industries has available for this model so that I can install a red dot and grip handle easily. I am sure that this will increase its accuracy for targets past the 25 yard mark. I will add an additional review once I make the modifications and let everyone know if the accuracy did improve.
After all, this is not a long range weapon by any means but I like to see how far I can push the envelope with regard to accuracy. Either way, it is a lot of fun to shoot and a great addition to anyone’s bug out inventory or a good trunk gun.
I also have the M92 and this model has significantly less recoil so if you do well with the 7.62x39 model you will do even better with this one.
I do recommend purchasing a muzzle brake as this does significantly reduce the recoil and muzzle flash. It will also assist with assuring there is a sufficient amount of back pressure to successfully complete the loading cycle. 2 months ago Show More Reviews...
