"I selected this gun for my two younger brothers to purchase. I'm pretty proud of the selection, as it will do exactly what you want from it. I am actually surprised by the quality ESPECIALLY for this price. Even the externals exceeded my expectations (the hand guard is sturdy and makes the whole gun feel solid and the polymer receiver is a sturdy polymer, while the adjustable stock is the only "flimsy" part). Both guns were consistent in quality, so I doubt that you have to worry as much about getting one of the "bad apple" guns that sometimes ship when gambling with cheaper AEG's.
I think the gun is a good base if you want to upgrade.
It's important to note that the gun seems to be a higher torque, lower ROF setup, but this is to be expected for this price range. My brothers use Elite Airsoft 7.4v, 20C Li-Po's, and all works well. (Lower voltage so the n00bs don't go frying the guns or something).
Overall, this is a great purchase. If Matrix put a prettier stock on the gun, they could easily sell these suckers for $200. Don't tell them I said that, though. "Got this gun and I loved it. Good ROF and extremely accurate. Don't like the mags it comes with, they break easily and don't feed well. Overall great gun. Love it! Only problem is after about half a year and it broke. Wouldn't feed. But it's a great gun! For sure a good buy "I have owned this AEG for 2 years now, and im quite happy with it.
The Body is made up of a good quality ABS.
This AEG is perfect if your looking to get into airsoft, or are looking for a good project gun. the size to weight ratio is perfect, its non fatuiging to use all day long. The accuracy and ROF off set the FPS in field games. I like this AEG way more than any other that i have owned, even my Tokyo Marui M4, its just that good.
good quality ABS
If your looking for a good starter gun, or a good project gun then look no further. This AEG is perfect for both the amature and pro player. I had mine upgraded to a DMR w. 6.03tb 650mm and a whole bunch of internals. Its the Best DMR i have ever had, surpasing my Tokyo Marui, and Echo1

Review: Initial Look & Feel:
Solid, durable and realistic. Everything you'd expect for great value. Matte black finish. 1:1 scale to a real steel M4 Carbine. Nice logo. Expect more and spoil yourself today.
Performance: Air Seal:
The Matrix M4 shoots an average of 30~50 FPS higher than most other brands with the same spring installed. Which means it has superb air seal and energy efficient. Less work on the Motor and Gear only means a more durable AEG.
With 6.04mm tight bore barrel already installed, it is also much more accurate than any other M4 AEG under $120.
This AEG is completed with all Matrix parts directly from Matrix's Taiwan factory, resulting the best factory direct value per dollar sportsline rifle in the market. The firing is smooth and the rate of fire is great with good accuracy and range.
Upon receiving the first batch, our technician fired 10,000 rounds (35 m4 hicap / 11.1V 1350mah Lipoly battery) on randomly selected five Matrix Tactical Systems M4 and the result was amazing. Each gun test was completed within 1 hour to really "stress test" these AEG. After the first 5000 round within the hour, the motor starts to get warm, and gets pretty hot by the 35th hi-cap. One anti-reversal latch broke during the stress test. To those that the above statements makes any sense to, this AEG is more durable and stable than most we have seen. It is more "Lipoly Ready" than any AEG out there, however, we still recommend only experienced gamers to use li-poly, as the gaming advantage comes with responsibilities.
