Airsoft GI employs some of the best techs from around the country in order to produce the quality that you would expect from one of the largest airsoft retailers in the world. To allow the techs to show off what they can do we gave them a budget of $1200 to make their dream AEG, and this HK416 is the brain child of tech Aaron Mora.
Aaron's tech knowledge goes well beyond airsoft guns and that has allowed him to produce a truly impressive AEG. Aaron began the CHOPS with VFC HK416 AEG which allowed him to build upon an already impressive and exquisitely crafted AEG. Aaron began to take the 416 and evolve it into an AEG that will impress even the most scrutinizing eyes. First he replaced a few key pieces of furniture with Dark Earth colored parts, giving the AEG a two toned design which alone takes the appearance of the HK416 to a whole new level. A Magpul MOE stock in Dark Earth gives the user a modular and comfortable feeling when firing the AEG. Up front, Aaron installed a Madbull Gemtech Halo Barrel extension as well as a Magpul RVG and VFC PEQ 15 illuminator which both completes the external look as well as providing both ergonomic and tactical advantages. To finish off the externals a Vism Green Dot Sight with Red Laser was installed to ensure that every shot is placed on target.
Internally is what can make or break any AEG, and in the case of the CHOPS the internals make it. Aaron started off the internal build by replacing the piston head, cylinder, spring guide, and ball bearings with Magic Box parts to ensure amazing compression. Next is where Aaron had a bit of fun with the build, the drive train features a Siegetek Revolution Gear set paired with a Tienly GT40000 motor and an Airsoft GI POM piston. These parts allow the gun to be extremely reliable and high performing. Aaron chose these parts due to the extensive history he has had working with them. The Siegetek Gears used are easily the most well built and durable gears on the market and Aaron has used them very successfully many times in the past. The Tienly motor has also been on Aaronís bench many times before and always with high performance and durable results. The Airsoft GI POM piston is another component that Aaron has used successfully in the past. Finally Aaron finished off the build by ensuring that the AEG was perfectly tuned with a perfect shim job, the AOE corrected with a Sorbo pad, and the motor height adjusted perfectly. However, Aaron knew that a perfectly tuned gearbox isnít the only piece that is needed in an airsoft gun and that is why he installed a 455mm inner barrel paired with the REAPS ME1 bucking.
The HK416 CHOPS AEG is the product of many years of tech experience and dedication to the build. That is why the CHOPS is a true performer and you will be hard pressed to find any AEG that even comes close to its performance and build quality.
