This gun has very nice detail and is mostly black in color. It's about 6-7/8 inches long. The bolt action lever on the side moves back and forth, the top handle (which is incredibly loose) pivots left and right, and there's a thin U-shaped ring that pivots up from the back of the stock. Finally, there's a two-legged stand that swings down and outwards from below the barrel. Unfortunately, the joints on this thing are so loose, it is functionally useless. Now, maybe I just got a bad one, (there is a noticeable seam in between the two halves of the front of the gun where the plastic isn't quite connected, which probably accounts for some of the problems) but I'm very unhappy about this aspect of the weapon.
This gun is black, gray, and silver, with a bit of brown for the pump action on the shotgun. It's about 6-3/8 inches long and looks very good from a sculpt standpoint. The pump action on the shotgun moves back and forth, as does the bolt action on the side of the M60. I really would have liked to have had the option to remove the shotgun too, but it's permanently attached.
M60 w/grenade launcher:
This gun is identical in appearance to the previous one in all respects except that the sub-weapon mounted below the barrel is a grenade launcher instead of a shotgun. This bothers me a little, as I think 21st Century should have done a bit more to make these two guns stand apart from one another. The barrel on the grenade launcher slides open to reveal a loaded shell, which is painted. While a cool touch, I really would have rather had removable shells as additional accessories than a single shell sculpted inside the barrel. Unfortunately, the sliding mechanism on this is incredibly loose and the grenade launcher will open and close by the force of gravity alone. Like the shotgun, I also think the grenade launcher should have been removable.
This gun is all black and looks a lot like a nasty sniper rifle with its long barrel and scope. This is the largest gun in the set, clocking in at 7 1/2 inches. The lower handle slides back and forth (it's easy to slide it right off the gun, so be careful), the top handle pivots left and right, the bolt action of the side slides back and forth, the lid on the front of the scope pivots up and down, and the entire scope assembly pivots upwards and forwards (be VERY careful with the scope, I broke a tiny piece of mine off almost immediately after removing it from the package when I was trying to operate this pivot joint).
Four ammunition containers come with this set. While this is an okay selection of accessories, I would also have liked to see one or two stand-alone ammunition belts and some additional gear you could attach to the guns (flashlights perhaps). Shells for the grenade launcher/shotgun would have been great too. Each gun also has an adjustable elastic strap attached to it as well for slinging it over your favorites soldier's shoulder/back.
- Three, black ammo drums. These fit on the sides of any of the four machine guns, but work best on the M60s. A single, painted bullet is sculpted in the opening where the belt would feed from. It'd be cool if these opened up and had actual ammo belts in them, but alas, they do not.
- An ammunition bag. This will only fit on the bottom of the M249; the bag slides on underneath and the short piece of ammo belt sticking out will go into the corresponding lower slot (the upper slot is for the drums). This accessory has some nice sculpted detail (zipper, seams, etc.) and paint operations that make it look fairly realistic. Instead of this molded plastic one, getting a soft goods bag with working zipper and an actual ammo belt inside it would have rocked.
