For: G&G Combat Machine CM16 MOD0 Carbine AEG Airsoft Gun (Black)Product Information:
I purchased this gun about two months ago from Airsoft GI, and I have to say that I'm thoroughly impressed. I've been out of the airsoft game for about four years and the quality of the guns for their price sure has changed a lot. The plastic on this gun is gorgeous. The stock is solid with no wobble and the small compartment works perfectly for me since my optic uses AA batteries. Before I changed the spring to an M100, it was consistently firing at 397-405. Also, I've had no feeding issues at all with several different magazines including but not limited to the Magpul P-Mag [which looks amazing on the gun by the way] and the comical bright yellow Matrix Banana mag. Despite the glue, the flash-hider was pretty easy for me to remove and the 14mm CCW threads fit a new one nicely. Also, it comes with three small rails that are made of a nice metal and can go exactly where you want them on your handguard. The part that I am absolutely ASTONISHED by is how bloody accurate this thing is! It comes with a 6.04 inner barrel [I had it measured at a store near me] that works together very nicely with their plastic hop-up [plastic gives a better seal than metal] and I quite literally hit everything that I set my sights on. And now with my red dot sight, I don't even have to put any real effort to get "kills" during games.
Final Verdict: If I could give this gun 6 stars, then I would. By far the best gun I have ever owned and it has brought me back to an old passion of mine. If I could do it all over again, I would've waited a few weeks to get this gun just to get the G&G 30th anniversary special edition of this gun [I'm a sucker for limited edition stuff though, so that's just me]. Buy this gun, you'll be extremely satisfied with it!
Outstanding accuracy, there really is no need to upgrade the barrel or the hop-up since it shoots so well out of the box.
Strong and consistent FPS clocking at 397-405
Outstanding externals and very solidly built
Very good looking and uniquely styled for an M4 [haven't seen another one like this on the field yet]
Decent rate of fire, I recommend either a 9.6v NiMH or a 7.4 Lipo [I've used both on it, but the Lipo performs better]
I personally like the removable front triangle sight which you can't take off of most M4s
The iron sights it comes with are outstanding [and I would know since I'm in the military], I like them better than standard AR sights [although to be fair, they're pretty similar]
The three rails it comes with are metal and very adjustable.
When I took it apart, the spring guide didn't have ball-bearings and the bushings are brass [I think] so those were my first upgrades. Also, they put too much lube on the gears from the factory, so if you are going to open it up then I recommend properly greasing and shimming them.
Since the body is plastic, the top rails are also plastic, though it's a very nice plastic so it's not a huge issue.
