An honest question from a newbee needs an honest answer surely.
GR01, the EV2 family are one of the most used rifles on the FT circuit today, extremely popular & used by some of the top names in the game.
There are some gripes concerning faulty ones straight from the factory but for everyone that has a complaint there is one that claims theirs has been brilliant from the get go.
I don't shoot one myself personally but my good friend Shaun initially had an issue with his EV2 that required two replacements & a repair IIRC but still maintains that it's a superb rifle & it has seen him climb up to AA recently.
A good second hand one matched with quality optics would not be a waste of your hard earned cash mate.
