"If you are looking for a rapid deployment LMG this gun is for you. A LMG with the simplicity of a M4. Its so Lightweight your gunner no longer has to lag behind due to the weight of his gear. The mag feeds without a skip. The gun is durable and reliable. By far the best gun Ive added to my collection. However, its smaller than youd think. I was able to fit it collapsed in my 40L bag. Its about the same size as a M4 carbine. It would be great for a high speed, or silent team as the LMG is very quiet when you move with it and light. "Let me start by saying that this is the most satisfying airsoft gun I've ever owned. The way it looks, the way it shoots, the ergonomics. It's all amazing. I've played two full days with it so far. The first day I took this gun out to the field was the first time I'd ever even used a support weapon. I only had the one mag the gun came with so I was praying it wouldn't malfunction. It didn't, and the box mag is probably the best magazine I've ever used. The entire internal section of the magazine has a spring beneath it that pushes up bb's as you fire, so there is no rattling until the magazine has about 250 bb's which is also a great way to tell when you're running low. The magazine can be filled up from the side without even taking it out of the gun which is another plus. The first game with this gun I went through about 5000 rounds in a day with no hiccups. The motor in this gun can easily handle suppressive fire, since at worst it's only gotten slightly warm after firing an entire mag in just a few minutes. The range and grouping are great as well. Range is about 150 feet I estimate, and the groupings look to be around 10 feet at this range. Again, this is just an estimate. Overall, This gun is great. Plus it gets tons of compliments for being badass. You may think I'm going to list just pros, but there are some cons too.
-Lightweight. It's never made me feel fatigued like an m249 or m60 would.
-the build quality feels amazing
-$350 for this beast is a steal
-magazine auto winds perfectly, doesn't rattle, and is loaded easily
-plenty of rail space and 14 mm negative threads for accessories
-Rof is perfect for suppressing as long as you get an 11.1 v battery (around 17 rps)
-Perfect for support, and can be used at Ops as a support weapon, but has way better handling than most LMG's
-Tons of fun to shoot and use
-comes with a 6.05 inner barrel stock and a decent bucking+nub which gives it good range
-Gearbox seems solid. It's had 10,000 rounds with no problem.
-comes with rail covers
-feels and handle much like an AR-15
-Battery is difficult to put in and wires can get crushed
-No sling mount points (I used paracord)
-Only full auto, which means you cant decompress the spring
-rate of fire is slow. With an 11.1 it's perfect, but if you want it to shoot faster than about 17 rps you'll need to do internal upgrades.
-top, back rail was difficult to get my sights on because it's just slightly thicker than the others.
-Can only take KAA Stoner mags
-the gas block that has the sight atttached to it becomes loose VERY easily and starts rattling. I took it off and put a piece of tape between it and the barrel to fix it. This wobble also made my front sight crooked which is why I got new sights.
-When taking off the outer barrel, You need to open the feed tray cover and hold the inner barrel so that it doesn't slide out with it. If it does, at best it's a bit annoying to get positioned again correctly and at worst the barrel gets twisted and rips the hop up bucking (which is what happened on mine)
-doesn't include fake bullets :(
-the stock SUCKS. the tab that clicks into each position can fall into the stock if you press the button when the stock isn't right side up. Then you have to take off the back stock piece to re position it. It's also very wobbly and clunky. And, the worst part: there's no way to replace it.
-some gun techs won't work on this gun because so few people have them
-There isn't much information about it out. For example I don't even know what version the gearbox is (although I believe it's V.2) and I don't know who OEM's it.
-The packaging was very basic white Styrofoam that gets everywhere and it didn't even come with a manual (just the gun with rail covers on it, and the magazine), hence I had to figure out the entire gun and don't know how the quick change spring feature works.
Also, this rifle is not made by KWA, as the reviewer below me said. On the box mag it says Classic Army so I assume the internals are as well, but a guy who owns a local airsoft shop near me said the internals were king arms. I'm not sure, but the internals are decent. They've put up with about 10000 rounds so far in the few weeks I've had it with no problem but I'm sure I'll have to replace some parts with stronger ones soon enough.
Obviously there are more cons than pros, But I recommend this gun fully. The cons, for the most part, can be worked around or negated, and it's worth it; Because this gun is extremely effective, intimidating, easy to handle, and fun to use. "First, I haven't taken this out on the filed yet. I will update then. But so far this thing is incredible. I am a big fan of KWA, and have 3 of their rifles. But this thing may "supersede" them for my needs. It is 400+ FPS out of the box (.20s). The box mag feeds great (unlike the A&K sound activated mags). The mag feeds automatically-there is a spring loaded plunger that pushes the BBS up and tells the mag when the winding needs to occur-hard to explain but it works great.
I'm hoping the matrix 11.1 stick type battery will fit in the underbarrel (where the battery is supposed to go) If it works it will be easily accessible, and invisible.
Great ROF. Hop-up seems effective and spins up BBs incrementally.
It's as light as most of M4s, and looks Bad ass.
I am super excited about playing with this bad boy. Read More Reviews Write a Review

Dummy bullets & scope in images not included. The fabric on the box magazine may be tan or digital woodland which varies by batch. Knight's Armament Airsoft (KAA) Full Metal Licensed KAC Stoner 96 LMG AEG Light Machine Gun
The real KAC Stoner Light Machine Gun (LMG) is a shining star in the Stoner line-up. Originally developed by Eugene Stoner and produced by Knight's Armament Company, the Stoner LMG pays homage to the legendary Stoner 63 LMG while being lighter, better, and leaner. KAC took Stoner's design a few steps further after years of R&D, resulting in the current KAC Stoner LMG being a light weight and yet powerful machine gun that tops its peers.
Extensive tests conducted on the KAC Stoner LMG have proven its superior controllability thanks to its lower weight, the lightest in the LMG class ever developed. The increased portability and controllability has proven to be a step up from the currently in service 5.56mm machine guns.
The Knight's Armament Airsoft Replica KAC Stoner LMG is a faithful reproduction of this rare and unique weapon. Meticulous attention to details gives birth to a masterpiece replicating the real weapon's look and-feel, and also the near perfect weight distribution and operational ergonomics. Numerous airsoft-exclusive features and innovations have been made on the model, taking this unit to a new standard for airsoft support weapons.
