"Allright people, I don't know why but EVIKE wouldn't let me review last time so I am going to try again.
Here is the review for the G&G M4 Combat Machine I currently use.
Lets begin with the externals.
Barrel, fake gas tube, upper receiver, carrying handle and rear sights, front sights, stock tube, and trigger.
Flashider, hand grips, lower receiver is some kind of nylon.
The gun has no wobble what so ever, the paint is solid, [I bought the tan, painted it black] and it does not come with the Marine Corp logo expressed in the picture. It feels really good, and has a nice weight to it, same size as the real thing. Front grip holds the battery, while the retractable stock slides back and forth, and has no wobble to it. Another complaint was that when you pull the charging handle back, it doesnt open the magcatch. So the little door that protects the hopup doesn't open unless you get something to open it with, like a knife or your finger nails. This can be a problem, but once you get the hop-up on spot you won't need to change it again.
G&G was spot on with this gun, very smooth firing, no springy sound or gear grinding, it is full metal, and reinforced, and can handle most upgardes and lipo batteries. When I opened it up, it was a little bit over greased, but everything looked very, very nice. No rust, copper, bronze...or ugly colors. Nothing but steel.
My only complaint is the spring, which needs to be beefed up, it fires anywhere in the neighborhood of 330-350fps.
It is pretty accurate, but nothing to write home about, nice tight groupings up to 100 ft.
Lugging this thing around was no big deal, and game performance was superb, I would frequently get comments on the accuracy of this gun, and I had a very good idea of it. It fires pretty fast, but I am not a speed guy, only occasionaly switching to full auto during stressful situations.
It performed when I needed it bottom line, and dropped those who needed to be dropped.
My only issue again was the fps, I am not a guy who upgrades his fps to get more of a reaction out of a player after I shoot them, I just want greater range. That plus it would get frustrating watchign someone dodge your bb's.
Though it was adequate it did leave welts and perfomed its job.
It is an amazingly simple gun, and has a lot of potential I am currently exploting right now.
Pros. Solid, no wobble, great internals, very accurate, is there when you need it.
Cons. Low Fps, needed RIS rails, little bit of an accuracy issue at some times. Thats the only reasons why I give it a 4 star rating
Overall. 4.5 Stars A good gun well worth the 140 dollars it costs.
Inner barrel, 6.03 or 6.01
Higher Fps spring
New metal RIS system so you can mount equipment.
Red dot sight.
All of which I have or am getting, really good gun though, cheers gents.
New Motor to handle the spring!
"well i just purchased this gun on 4/26/10. my first impression was that the gun is very light, and all the plastic is high quality and HARD.the stock is a bit wobbly, but nothing a few strips of electric tape cant fix. and the mag fits loosely in the magwell (though it still feeds flawlessly). i personally use MAG brand midcaps. they, too, are loose, but two times around with electric tape fixes that perfectly. other than the mag, stock, and mock bolt catch, the gun is as solid as a rock. there is no need for a metal body because this body is very sturdy. the front take down pin is a locking pin, but the back is not.the rail under the carry handle is plastic. the hop up is also a plastic one piece. the inner barrel is silver, but i cant confirm it to be a tightbore, thouh its very accurate. pretty much every black piece you see in the picture is metal. i suggest to use a 9.6v nunchuck battery. i have one and it shoots 16rps. it is also about 360-350 fps (this is all confirmed by evike's chronograph). all and all, this gun is a beast. and dont let the price fool you, it is a very high-end aeg.
nice sounding internals
great rof with 9.6
good fps for field or cqb
wobbly mag, stock, and mock bolt catch
