The WE Full Metal/Fake Wood Blow Back M14 is a one of a kind airsoft gun, it is in it's own class of authenticity. The weight of the WE M14 is within ounces of the real gun's weight. The movement and sound of the full metal bolt is exquisite. Also, the kick given off as the gun is being fired is as close to firing a real gun as airsoft can get. WE have seriously outdone themselves with this gun. The stock may be made from artificial wood but it is very sturdy and provides a solid platform for the shooter to hold the gun. The bolt movement is crisp and smooth. The barrel is made of metal and sits very sturdily in the stock, which will make for a very accurate shot. WE is not typically a company that comes to mind when you think of quality airsoft guns but this M14 is making a strong case to be considered into that category. As gas guns become more and more popular it is pretty obvious that WE is going to be on the cutting edge of that expansion.
Muzzle Velocity: 430-450+ FPS
Magazine Capacity: 25 rounds
Package Includes: gun, magazine, quick loader, extra follower spring
For: WE Full Metal/Fake Wood M14 GBB Rifle Airsoft Gun
One of the most realistic guns I.have owned in my career. This massive gun sounds, looks, and feels intimidating, not to mention feels like the real thing. It disassembles like the real thing and is very close to 1:1 as the real one meaning real steel parts can fit on this gun. It has a very long barrel and it shoots the range as well. The recoil of this gun is the best part and the accuracy is no joke either. This gun is a keeper if you have the cash.
sound and feel
rate of fire
Very heavy for most airsofters
since there are a lot of movin gparts, things tend to break
Very expensive to run
shroud is made of very cheap abs plastic

Ok, this gun is absolutely AWESOME! The build quality, the heftiness, the sound, the kick, this is one sweet gun. If you're an airsoft player, or just a collector whose a Vietnam era weapons freak (like I am), looking for a tough Gas Blowback rifle, thats also a lot of fun to shoot, get the WE M14, its so worth it! When I got the gun, the first thing I noticed is the weight. It may not look like it, but this thing ain't light. Its gotta weight around 12 pounds, very very close to the real M14. But it does make your arms tired pretty quick so I would invest in a sling if you're gonna use it for skirmish. Everything that is metal on the real M14, is metal here, and its very thick, tough metal, not pot metal. This contributes to its weight. The mag is said to hold 30, but really holds only 20 but you can get up to 28-29 in there, but I bought the gun for realism so I just put 20 in it. I would also invest in another magazine or two, if you want to shoot it any. The KICK is awesome. I love shooting this thing and burned up almost all of my Green Gas can the first couple days of having it. Its LOUD, too! It makes my ears ring a bit, even when shooting it outside! But I tell ya, the kick and the sound sure bring a smile to your face. I like how the but plate slings up and rest on your shoulder like the real M14/M1A and once you lift it in there is a storage compartment with your mag loader and I'm guessing a mag spring (probably to convert it to hold 30 rounds). Theres only 2 things I have issues with. One is the PLASTIC Stock! Now don't get me wrong, its actually a very tough plastic, and its pretty thick, too. But like I said, I bought this gun for realism and for how much you pay for it, a Wood Stock would be very nice. I'll probably invest in one later on. The other is the god damn huge ass orange flash hider. This kills the look of the gun quite a bit, and its the whole damn flash hider, not just the tip. I was hoping WE would include a black flash hider for collectors like myself, as I have them do that with other guns, but to my disappointment not with the M14 I got. And other thing, the manual isn't really a manual, its more of a parts diagram and doesn't really explain how to take the gun apart, access the hop up, or anything like that, I had to figure all that out on my own, but that wasn't a huge issue. Overall, this gun is totally worth it, the best $300 I've ever spent. Highly Recommended.
Another thing, if you want to save some $$$ on Gas, use the $3 bottles of Coleman propane which can be found at any sporting goods store, or any store that sells camping gear, and a reusable propane adapter nozzle and bottle of silicon oil that you can find for $15.
Thickness of the metal parts
The Weight (I'm all about realism so I find that a plus)
Realistic mag capacity
Realistic and easy disassemble
That damn Orange Flash hider
Plastic Stock (though it feels very tough, and thick)
The hop up is hard to access
You'll be using a lot of gas because its so damn fun to shoot lol.

well except for a broken magazine bolt catch when received it's a pretty good gun so far!
it a blast to shoot but the LOW cap. mag gets old quick...
I like to stick to realism so I haven't replaced it with the 30 round spring (included).
I personally think the synthetic stock sux just because of the color, if it were black I wouldn't mind it but I'll be replacing it with real wood soon.
I'm using propane and have found the accuracy to be inconsistent on single shot but better on full auto.
I don't scrimmage but collect and target shoot so can't say how it stands up in the field.
not quite as nicely built as the Ares WA2000 but better than my JG M99... if that helps.
loud blow back kinda adds to realism, would be great with a mock suppressor.
strong kick for a GBB which is also kinda cool.
not clunky or loose, pretty solid.
price is right I think.
fake wood (nice quality though)
US law 1/4'' orange tip, NOT 4" to much orange..
hopup access isn't that great
Anyone like myself who finds themselves in the realm where the airsoft and firearms communities overlap are familiar with the debate over the viability of airsoft guns for firearms training. It goes back a long time. I have used gas blowback pistols for training many years. The cost of operating an airsoft gun, although not inexpensive, is like night and day when compared to a real firearm. For that reason alone I am a proponent of using airsoft for training. It comes with limitations but it is one more tool for the tool box.
And, more recently airsoft has been gaining momentum in the firearm community as a viable training tool, especially as ammo prices have soared. Travis Haley of Haley Strategic Partners, well established in the firearm community, has endorsed airsoft guns as a means for training in a recent video and does an excellent job of explaining the advantages.
I remember getting the occasional law enforcement orders years back for gas blowback pistols because functionally they were quite similar to their real firearm counterparts but the demand was never that great for rifles and I feel one of the primary reasons was the dominance of AEGs on the market. At the time although useable for force on force training they had several shortcomings such as being dimensionally different then real firearms since they need to house a gearbox, motor, and battery. I will not detail all the shortcomings as that would take an inordinate amount of your time and mine.
Developments like the Systema PTW and others fixed some of the problems. For example, the Systema PTW used a new motor and gearbox design that aside from being more efficient enabled the PTW to have a proportionally correct size pistol grip and receiver. Also, the Systema PTW design had a functional "bolt release." I emphasize bolt release because that is what it was meant to simulate, the release of the bolt carrier group to chamber the first round after inserting a new magazine. But in reality the Systema PTW did not have a bolt at all.
That was the shortcoming of the PTW and similar systems; the lack of a bolt carrier group. As a result the charging handle and forward assist did not function. Since the release of the PTW there have been blowback AEGs but that normally consists of a thin metal plate "recoiling" back. Aside from that they are not functionally different from conventional AEGs.
Enter the gas blowback rifle. Over about the last 2 years the airsoft market has seen the emergence of gas blowback rifles. Although gas rifles have been around many years they have been outshined by AEGs but models like the King Arms gas blowback M4 and others have addressed the shortcomings of AEGs, at least in the training sense. The design of such gas blowback rifles bring airsoft guns to a new level as training tools. Like the Systema PTW they are dimensionally similar if not that same as their real firearm counterparts.
The difference comes down to the internal operation. There is not an electrical switch. When you pull the trigger a hammer is released, a bolt carrier group recoils/blowsback; into a buffer tube that has a buffer and spring. As a result the trigger feel, fieldstrip/breakdown, controls, felt recoil are all more realistic. Every sensation and operation is enhanced. The near future release of KWA's gas blowback M4, the LM4, gives me further hope for the future of the gas blowback airsoft rifle as a training tool. KWA promises it will out perform and provide greater efficiency then current platforms.
The only significant shortcomings from my perspective remaining with the gas blowback rifles is they function less efficiently in cold and no marking ability. I discount the decreased accuracy as compared to a real firearm out of hand as my primary concern as a training tool is for force on force scenarios and weapons manipulation practice. In regards to the remaining shortcomings we are light years ahead of where we were a couple years ago. I was there, I remember. The desire is always to have the perfect system but in this world nothing is perfect so for the time being such shortcomings can be worked around and should not deprive us of a viable training tool.
