The G&G SOC 16 Ver. 4 is essentially a shortened version of their M14 airsoft rifle. The primary differences aside from the short barrel is the improved flash hider and the forward scope rail. The forward scope mount gives the user excellent eye relief whether using a magnification scope or a red dot scope. Another advantage is it prevents the scope from interfering with the controls and bolt operation. The intermediate length of the SOC 16 makes it long enough for open outdoors and woodland scenarios without being cumbersome as the M14 can sometimes be. This is an excellent choice for anyone who appreciates the M14 design.

My gun came as a lemon, so I will go easy on it. I've had two problems, both easy fixes, but problems nonetheless.
Upon opening the box, I was giddy with joy over my first REAL AEG (i have played for a year or so with loners and LPEGs). I took the rifle out of it's solid packaging (came secured with BBs, 8.4x1600 battery, charger, mag, and chrono slip reading 370) and noticed an immediate heft and length. Both of those are fine, I'm of above-average size and stature (6'2, 190, weak-ass arms, strong legs), it fits me well. the rifle measures at around 38 inches and weighs in at 8lbs unloaded (well balanced, feels like 6 or 7, feels better than my friend's front-heavy G&G M16). At max, with two loaded High-caps on an afro-engineered mag clamp, same battery, and a Leapers Aimpoint (on this website, find it) on the foward rail, the rifle weighs in at about 11 pounds. It is still well-balanced.
The gun feels extremely solid. Everything besides the stock and heatshield are high-quality metal. The stock and heat-shield are both solid ABS. The stock is one-piece and very solid (100% wobble free hear), seems to have metal inserts (or at-least reinforcements) on the lower handguard, the mag-well, and the hole for the trigger. I can not say the same for the heat-shield. It is wobbly and flexes if pressure is put on it. It is barely secured to the outer barrel, I have every confidence in it staying on. It is mostly minor annoyance. The flexing can be easily fixed if you want to lessen tacticool points. A simple application of black-tape on the forward sling mount will dramatically decrease any flexing/wobbling. It also removes the annoyance of having that piece of metal flop around. The body is full metal and features engraved almost-authentic trades (authentic in style, but not Springfield). They read from top to bottom:
7.62 MM M14
G&G (supposed to say Springfield)
0580202 (serial number).
A pull of the charging handle yields a satisfying "Shhck-Kak" (the best charging handle sound ever), and revels the metal hop-up. Too much charging handle-pulling will result in two small pieces falling off. They are both purely astheical and don't detract from the quality at all. A tiny, L-shaped piece on the ejection-port cover fell off, as well as a "U"-shaped piece of metal forward the front sight (brass deflector?). A fully-functional bolt catch and alot of room make hop-up adjustments a breeze. The metal rear-sight is full adjustable left/right and up/down, the front-sight post is solid-metal and fixed, it is removed with the flashider, which is removable but yields no threads. The fire-selector has two options semi&full. It is metal and requires pushing and twisting to switch between firing modes (can't be done with your finger still on the trigger), it is very solid on full-auto, on semi it wobbles when agitated. The trigger assembly is metal. The rear is pulled down with a little force, which separates the reciever and heatshield from the stock. The trigger assembly has an arm on the top, which grips a small switch, which fires the gun. The safety is a small switch that blocks the trigger-arm from moving. It is very easy to "safe" your weapon, it can be done with the same finger as your trigger.
Mags are inserted in the front-catch (located on the GB, serves as a spring-guide for charging-handle as well), and rocked back onto the rear catch (on the trigger assembly.) High-caps fit easier than mid-caps do. It is a little tricky at first, a small familiarization can do wonders.
The gun fires 370 according to ASGI, broke in denting the bottom center of a pop-can with .25s (about 340). It fires well, has not jammed after 6,000 rounds. It has a very high rate of fire, much faster than an ICS MP5 (ICS is known to make one the best motors) It also fires far. I've hit a midget-sized target at 130 ft. Mine is very inaccurate. BBs veer-off, I can't key-hole at 25 feet. I have located the problem in a bad hop-up bucking (it is torn where the piece of plastic in the hop-up unit contacts the bucking, the very place where the BBs are given spin). It is an easy fix, a minor disassembly (requiring but an allen-wrench) and a new hop-up bucking ($20 at most, a very good quality is $5). Mine was a lemon, considering reviews on its stellar accuracy. It will not be penalized as much as accuracy this poor is, but still will be.
I talked about one more problem. I had a defective high-cap. It came not working. It was surely a lemon. I received a replacement, which works flawlessly. I also got mine broken one to work, after realigning the feeding-gears.
The lemons certainly do detract from this gun's quality. They are easy fixes and apparently rare problems. But they are still problems. When this gun is fixed, it will shoot fast, well, and hard. I'll write a new review, which I'm certain will show this gun in a much better light. I would still recommend it to anyone that appreciates a man rifle such as this. My problems were not common, and are easy fixes. I just got bad luck.
This is a review of MY gun, everyone else's seems great, mine isn't. I would still recommend it.
looks and feels great
problems are minor or easy fixes
any wobble only occurs when the object in question is agitated
Forward scope rail, perfect for red-dots
Most guns are great, I got a problem
damaged stock hop-up bucking
wobble exists, minor but still exists
Not TM-compatible, there are few and far between upgrades, of which are expensive
most cons are minor and easily fixable. the one major con, is a $5 easy fix. they still exist when they shouldn't though.

i have had this gun for about 9 months now and am able to give a good overall review.
To start this gun look wise is amazing. G&G did a good job at making this gun extremely realistic down to the bolt. EXCEPT for the Heat Shield which for anyone who owns this gun knows is a piece of shit./ Its flimsy and crapy and i dont know why they built such a good gun and then threw that heat shield on. But anyways externally it is amazing so 4.5 stars for the body
excellent extrenal body
can EASILY house a 9.6v cause i use a 9.6 3300 mah and still have alot of extra room.
nice toprail to mount red dot scopes
very very accurate. I have been around alot of airsoft guns of all brands TM, CA, JG, G&P, everything and this is as accurate if not more accurate than some of the extremely nice upgraded guns ive seen when it comes to accuracy.
Nice rof but this is mainly due to the 9.6v
fps is good. i cronoed mine myself at 347 with .2 and 321ish with .25s which are what i use
stripped a gear just recently. probably due to running a fast battery but shouldnt have stripped. but im fixing that now.
shitty heat shield
mags. i hate how G&G made it harder to get mags by making their gun only compatable with their own brand mags. it sucks to have to pay 30 bucks for a mid cap
overall this is a good gun. sucks it stripped a gear but thats airsoft.the only reasons for the 4 stars and not 5 is the heat shield and the stripped gear. i own several other weapons and i still choose this as my main weapon. Its a great gun and a really nice buy for a high grade starter package
buy it u wont regret it. and as far as the last review goes 300 is pretty average for a gun and maybe you have an older verson but mine shoots the avertised fps. but either way i have yet to buy a gun that shoots the fps avertised on the website.

The soc 16 upon arrival was amazing. The look and feel really blew me away. I shot it that night after a full charge and was really excited to test it the next day, this is when my troubles started. I got the soda can, your average coke can and point blanked the bottom, strange only a dent. Again a dent and a slit? Airsoftgi says 380 on my chrono sheet how could this be?? So I got into my car and drove to my airsoft store. The chrono read 299,302 with .23s and then 319,322 with .2s. Lets just say I feel lied to and to be honest I am trying to decide whether or not the return this gun. The performance even at these speeds is still respectable but I just feel jipped. A friend also recently got this gun from here and has the same I guess we could say issue with fps. Overall 3.5/5
