In 1966 the Colt 609, or XM177E2 carbine went into production as one of the earliest carbines of its kind to see widespread production and use by American military forces. The XM177 sported a short 10 inch barrel with a beefy 4.5" moderator type flash hider, a 2 position collapsible plastic stock and a fixed carry handle with adjustable rear sight. After 1967 the E1 variant was discontinued and the E2 variant of the XM177 took its place, with a longer 11.5" barrel. The XM177 paved the way for the CAR-15 carbine, and later, the popular M4A1 carbine still in use today.
The G&P XM177E2 Airosft AEG is a fitting homage to its real counterpart. Housed inside of G&Ps period correct aluminum receiver is G&Ps workhorse 8mm Ver.2 gearbox, known for being a solid and reliable gearbox it ensures that your XM177E2 will keep up in the field under any conditions.

"I do vietnam airsoft and this rifle is a must have. Great performance fires well and very accurate. Heavy duty made and very happy with it..will highly recommend great buy.
"Love it. Super handy, lightweight, chronographed at 365FPS with .25g BBs, and ran all day with a 1400mAh 7.4v LiPo. Included mid-cap is decent enough, but I supplemented it with four additional G&P midcaps (20rd "Vietnam" style that fits this gun better than the later 30rd style mags). Get a set of M1956 web gear and some jungle fatigues (or tigerstripe) and you're set.
Evike's description is well written and historically accurate (rarity for most airsoft vendors) and the buying experience was easy and pleasant.
