JG M16 A1 AEG Airsoft Gun
[02410 / F6618]
$165.00
by P. SCHNELLE Date Added: Thursday 05 June, 2008
Well, I purchased this gun from a local airsoft retailer, and I have to say I was excited to get a Vietnam era M16. We chronoed it at the shop and it was shooting about 330 with .23's, which translates roughly into 360-370 with .20's and no Hop-Up setting. As soon as I brought the gun home, however, the Hi-Cap exploded within 40 shots, and the Hop-Up did not seem to want to work. Luckily I have quite the airsoft arsenal, so I put in a few midcaps and still the Hop-Up was not consistent. When I finally got to taking the gun apart, there appeared to be a slice in the bucking. Once I replaced that, the gun is now shooting moderately well, nothing to laugh at, but nothing to gawk at. One point worth mentioning, however, is that my $80 JG MP5SD5 which I purchased from AirsoftGI is actually shooting stronger, farther and more accurately than the M16A1.

Pros:
-Unique Look
-It is an M16, so mags are not hard to find
-Solid build once you tighten screws ( I see that a wobbly body is a main complaint around this site, and it takes about 5 minutes with some screwdrivers and allen wrenches to fix it.)
-Shoots respectively and reasonably accurately to about 100 feet

Cons:
-My Hi-Cap needed surgery, and it still is not feeding that well even with a new winding spring
-Is not much of an upgrade over other cheaper JG guns (in my experience at least)

OVERALL:
If I could go back, I do not think I would have purchased this rifle. Not because it is a bad product, but just because it is nothing special, and for me at least, I want to find that special rifle that I can call my own and count on in the hairiest airsoft battle (possibly even name it). This is a nice rifle, but I personally am not a huge fan.

Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! [4 of 5 Stars!]
