"I bought this AEG localy about four years ago, and it has been my primary weapon for countless airsoft events, from backyard play to milsim.

Performance,
-Tight shot group
-Decent rate of fire
-The barrel has a little play where it conects to the upper reciver (easy fix)
-Good all round FPS, it is a little low for open terrain, but when playing with FPS restrictions it can be taken in doors as well.
-You will be out gunned in some milsim play, but not enough to ruin the game. (this isn't a polar star)
-Accepts almost any brand of mags.

The only real problem I have encountered is the safty (when on semi) will not fire some times. This occurs after double tapping to quickly, and is easly (for the game) fixed by switching to full auto and pulling the trigger once. (then you can switch back to semi).

NOTE: This problem has only occured after four years of hard use, and can be fixed.

Over All- Great gun for the price and will last a long time with out failing.

"Recently traded a JG M4 for this particular model, lightly used.

I immediately swapped out the stock 8.4v large for a 9.6v small, and it shoots rather nicely, aside from an occasional, slightly unnerving slap from the gearbox and piston when releasing the trigger from full auto. It resumes fire without problem, and there is no evidence of damage, so I'm not sure if the motor's just getting a little over-excited or what.

There is also the usual barrel wobble that most M16/AR-15 types are known for, but it isn't so much that it detracts from accuracy or the overall feel, and it is easily remedied, just haven't opened it up yet to put shims in.

The accuracy is rather impressive, even for a rifle with such a long barrel. It outperforms my CYMA M14 by a fair margin, which was my DMR before, placing shots 100% of the time on a man-size target from 200 feet with little left/right deviation. Good hop-up unit with consistent results using .25g Matrix BBs.

No creaks or squeaks from the ABS receiver or stock after tightening the screws up. Accepts all the STANAG-style magazines that I have without issue, except for the standard 68-rounder that I attempted to use from an A&K M249... but that's no real problem, just an oddity. There's about a half-inch of up/down play in the mag well, and I decided not to try and fire it based on that. Also readily accepts the $35 Beta-C Mag that Evike is selling, previously $55 or so, which the JG M4 I traded for had quite a bit of difficulty fitting into the well.

Overall, a very solidly built AEG, with the usual problems of the M16-style weapons minimized. I would say that the FPS is around 400, judging from the seeping, oozing wounds it placed on a fellow player at about 30 feet through his gear... I wouldn't recommend it for CQB based on that fact alone. It's easily manuevered due to the relatively light weight and variable shooter's triangle.

REVIEW
After over forty years in service, the M16 still remains the standard issue rifle for the U.S. Army. Popularized during the Vietnam era, the M16's gradual evolution has made it into a rather reliable and capable weapon. These characteristics have provided the world's armed forces with a strong base for dozens of other variations. Alongside its little brother, the M4A1, the M16 remains a hugely popular rifle and is still featured in hundreds of popular military books, films, television shows, and video games.
*AEG comes with orange tip to meet U.S. regulations.
