The TAR is amazing.. the material that the body is constructed of is very solid, and has a nice texture...
I really like the reddot and laser configuration too.. when I removed the reddot/laser unit, I was surprised to discover that the wire that links the laser button (which is on the front of the gun) to the reddot/laser unit, connects with floating spring loaded contacts instead of a solid wire connection, so the unit can be removed without disconecting anything.
The gun is also serial numbered, and trademarked, apparently licensed by cybergun (stated on the box).
I've been getting about 330 FPS out of it stock. Gun also has fairly significant range with a barrel that is approximately 16 inches long.
So far the only con that I have found is that the gun does not have a rear sling mount.. but it has a hole for one, so i just rigged one up... but beyond that... nothing so far..
Overall, Id definately reccomend buying this gun... its worth every penny..in my opinion of course..

Hows your R85 do? I've read mixed reviews on that specific airsoft gun, and have therefore been hesitant to purchase one..
When I first got the R85 it's performance was so so... but after i disabled the blowback bolt system it worked alot better... I eventually had some trouble with using it on semi auto, but full worked fine..
We ended up overhauling the whole thing with a new lower mech box, and piston head, and its worked like a charm since.
If your not willing to do alittle work on it though.. id probably recomend the STAR Version, but im still pretty happy with mine...
