Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Astonishing features, such as FPS, RPM, Comfort, and Durability (exluding the stock).
Cons:The range isn't the best and the stock might snap off.
The Bottom Line: The price is great, and the features are amazing and the range is quite good for a CQB.
I have recently just purchased this Pulse R76 semi and full automatic air soft gun because it had great range, accuracy, and a great price.

The model of this air soft gun is the Automatic Kalashnikov 1974 under folder, better known as the AK-74u.
FPS(Feet Per Second)
The Feet Per Second of this gun is 375. I have been playing air soft for a long time, and 375 FPS for an assault air soft rifle is good. Many other high quality air soft guns made by JG, Echo 1, and ICS have very high FPS guns but the price of the guns are much higher. This gun is meant for CQB (Close Quarters Combat) so it is not meant for great long ranges, it is a simple air soft gun, not creating that much distance.
RPM(Rounds Per Minute)
With a standard air soft battery, the RPM for this gun is amazing. Its RPM is around 700-800 shots, so that means the gun is capable of shooting 11-13 shots per second! You could always upgrade the battery and make the gun shoot way faster, but then you would have the risk of breaking your gun by stress, so you would have to upgrade pretty much everything.
The effective range is how far your gun could shoot while still being accurate. This gun's effective range is maxed out at 33 feet or under, read right off the box. Again it could be better but stating that the gun is an air soft assault rifle meant for CQB, not a sniper, the effective range is quite amazing for this gun. Yet because it is a CQB gun you do not need a great effective range if you are using this gun up close.
This gun requires a standard 8.4 volts and 1150 mah stick battery. The battery comes with the gun so there is no need to worry about trying to find one and is accessible under the top rail of the gun. The battery must be charged for a minimum of around six hours and a maximum for around eight hours. Overcharging the battery will most likely cause failure in the gun.
The Pulse R76 is a quite durable gun, being made out of a combination of both metal and very strong, solid plastic. Many parts of the gun like the rear sight, the top rail, the stock, the trigger and trigger guard, the gear box, and the magazine is metal but there is a big problem with the stock, many people (including both of my friends) had their stock snap off the gun due to wear and tear, or misuse of the gun. It is very easy to fix, and the gun comes with a 90 day warranty. You can call the company that created the gun (Crosman) to send you new parts to your gun.
Comfort and Mobility
This air soft gun is extremely comfortable. The end of the stock can be easily turned back so it rests against your shoulder easily, providing the best accuracy. If you do not like the stock, you can push a button and the stock will easily be folded under your gun (that's why it's called the under folder). The main grip and the fore grip are coated in a nice, thin, and smooth rubber padding providing the comfort of the gun to the extreme.
The Pulse R76 air soft gun is pretty light. It weighs about 4.5 lbs. so you can easily take this around anywhere.
Just to remind you, this is an air soft gun. It can still hurt someone if mistreated and used incorrectly. No matter what gun you are using, you should always wear safety glasses, especially for this gun. This gun has a safety switch, that you can use, to make sure you won't accidentally pull the trigger.
So the Pulse R76 is a great gun! There are some problems you might encounter while using this product but they can be fixed and maintained. The price is great for a gun of this power. I highly recommend this air soft gun to all air soft players, whether you are new or an expert, this gun is for everyone.
