"Review for E&C Airsoft M16-A3.

This is a great gun for the price ($145).


- Solid Metal Construction
This receiver refuses to bend or warp. It appears to be made out of a high-quality aluminum/aluminum alloy. I can't see this breaking anytime soon.

- Bolt Catch
Adds a realistic touch to this already great gun. Pulling back the bolt reveals the hop-up (decent as far as I can tell), and because of the bolt catch, the inner bolt stays open so you can adjust the flight of the BB's without fumbling with the gun. Charging the bolt will also give a satisfying "clank" that sounds quite realistic.

- Sturdy Foregrip
The polymer foregrip is extremely robust and refuses to wobble. It is on extremely tight, so tight, that it takes a considerable amount of force to remove both parts (luckily the battery goes in the stock)

- Battery Space
The battery space in this gun is simply astounding. It takes a 9.6v butterfly like a pro, and has enough space to fit any other battery you may have (probably not a car battery, though I haven't tried). Because of the large space in the stock, smaller batteries (even my 9.6v) rattle around a little, causing some noise while running. A simple and cheap fix to this could be putting a small sock or a similar piece of fabric inside the stock.

- Accuracy
I can reliably hit human sized targets out to 150 feet with this gun, and (with .25 BB's) the rounds are hitting in roughly the same place with every shot. I imagine you could range this to 200ft, but that would be a stretch for a $145 gun.

- Miscellaneous
This gun comes with a rail segment on top, great for mounting optics if you so chose to.


- Stock
Sadly, because of the hollowness of the stock, it bends slightly. I can imagine this stock breaking if you abuse it too much. In fact, I can make the stock flex just by squeezing it slightly. This stock feels cheap, and the door to the battery compartment feels extremely cheap (though this would be harder to break because of where it is located).

- Magazine
The included magazine fits well and is of high quality. However, sometimes magazines feel like they are in, but they are not. This was a small problem at first, but after some use, it faded away

For the price, this is a steal. You're getting a gun that can compete with $200 rifles but for $55 less! Magazines are cheap (use E&C midcaps for this gun) and full metal. I cannot say enough good things about this airsoft rifle.

"Shoots better than expected, with .28s this can reach out and touch people. This gun is honestly one of the best China made guns that I have ever owned. I've been using an 11.1 lipo in mine for 5 months now and I've played every other week with her and the response is crisp! Even with a normal 9.6 nimh the trigger response is still pretty quick but not as good as an 11.1.

Shoots far
Full metal
full stock
BIG battery space
Metal hop up chamber

Mags are a bit picky; Elite force, hexmag, KWA K120s will NOT feed.
Full stock is hard to put back on if you don't have the right length screw driver.
Handguard is a little hard to take off (Could be a pro for some)

The only cons are only small things that can be easily fixed.
