"Alright, so I bought this gun basically as a throw away when all my primary guns were down and I had an event to go to. I really didn't expect much out of it, but needed something cheap and fast. I purchased it with a 400mm 6.03 Evike custom barrel, a mock suppressor and a Maple Leaf 70 degree bucking.

To my surprise, after some slight modifications, the gun actually shoots pretty good. It has been more reliable than my primary guns which cost in excess of 2x the price. When I received the gun, two things caught my attention as "not so good." First, the rail was backwards and a little wobbly. Second, the hopup adjuster was terribly loose. It was near impossible to adjust and keep it there.

Out of the box, the range was maybe 80-100' with the stock barrel/bucking. I threw on the 400mm tbb, put in the Maple Leaf and had my tech throw a rubber o ring under the adjuster to tighten it a bit. The range definitely improved to well over 130'+. The FPS is a little bit low when using .25's - .28's. The bb gets out there, but it takes it a bit.

I took out the gear box just to inspect it and it definitely has a weak spring and a crappy nozzle. So far though, the gear box hasn't failed a single time. Not even a jam. It does sound pretty rough though. a re-shim and re-grease would definitely be recommended pretty quick.

I used the gun at a small op at DV8 in Florida and it performed pretty good. I didn't really have massive range and with the low FPS, the bbs wouldn't punch too well through light brush, but it held it's own. The only issue I ran into was the lower piece of the rail actually fell off. I easily fixed this by zip tying the rail. Problem solved. Also, the rear butt plate fell off somewhere, never to be found.

All in all, I have been pleasantly surprised by this gun. The quality of the externals and feel of the metal body is great. So much so that I honestly may upgrade the hell out of it and make it my primary over my BO LT595.

Pros:

Solid metal body
So far it's been pretty darn reliable
Price
With some slight upgrades (barrel, bucking) it actually performs decent

Cons:
Hop up may need a little modifications to stay true
wobbly rail (I just put zip ties around it)

"*This is a review for both the new gen d-boys and the clot licensed gun due to the fact that I ordered the D-Boys version and got the Colt version.*

I am in no way affiliated with Evike.

I have had this gun for quite a while and haven't written a review on it yet so I figured why not give it a go. First of all I'll go over the assembly. Everything on this gun other than the transitioning part of the stock, the grip, and the front sight is completely metal, including the internals. The only thing I noticed that bothered me when holding the gun is that the outer barrel slightly wobbles (about 1/16th of an inch). Although this DOES NOT effect the shot of the gun at all, it took me some getting used to. Upon firing the gun I found it to be a very smooth feeling shot. However I found another slight flaw with my gun while shooting it. The gun shot slightly to the left. Although this had almost zero effect on the accuracy of the gun, and may just be a problem with my model, it made it almost impossible to use sights for the gun. However, sights are somewhat impractical for airsoft anyway unless you are buying a sniper. The only other thing that I can think of while airsofting that you may need to consider if you are a younger or smaller player is that this gun is heavy. Before you buy this gun make sure that you are okay running around with something as heavy as a real firearm. I play out in the cold weather with this gun (I bought a 9.6 volt battery for it as well http://www.evike.com/products/24483/) and have played in games down to 15 degrees. I have never had a problem in the cold weather. Even when other airsofters guns are going dead, this still shoots like a freshly charged weapon. I'm not sure if its the battery listed above, or that this consumes so little power without effecting the shot. I feel like in this review I have bashed this gun a lot but these are the only flaws in it and I cannot stress enough how much I love this gun. It has great range, an incredible fire rate, and just the smoothest feeling shot out of any airsoft gun I have ever fired. My brother has a $170 D-Boys gun from evike (http://www.evike.com/products/28046/) and although it shoots just as far and as accurate as mine, it dosen't have the same smooth feeling that this gun has. I don't think there is a better gun on the market for this price.


Pros.
Great smooth feeling to the shot
Accurate
Fast firing rate
Battery efficient
Decent Range
Full Metal (has survived more than a few drops)
Lots of Rail Space

Cons.
Outer barrel slightly wobbly
Shoots slightly to the left

In Conclusion, I would more than recommend this gun. you are definitely getting your moneys worth.

"This was my first AEG and i am extremlly impressed. Its all metal except for the Stock, Pistol Grip, and rail guards. I think Mine is shooting low average Fps but im planning on changing that. I got it from airsoft megastore who gave me a battry that didnt work. So i emailed them and 2 weeks later i got a reply that said "OK". So i had to buy a new battery. Im gonna stick wih evike from now on. So this is an amazing gun.

"I have the Bi-3681 model.
M4a1 Full Metal.
Both of the rifles are solid and hard shooting. I chronoed mine at local paintball field at consistent 380

the reason the dboys mags dont feed well is the fact that they wobble. if you tape along the inside of the magwell, it'll reduce the play and feed efficiently. G&P, STAR, MAG, and Dboys all work fine.

ive tried JG and A&K mags - they dont work well.
Dboys produces OEM
75 rd Mid caps, 190rds short mags, Waffle Type Hi-caps, etc.
that will work flawlessly with the BIM series M4's.

"Great gun, did not buy from here, got it from a Hong Kong dealer (regreting that now).
To answer Tom P. No the UMG gear box is a version 3 gear box, not compatible with the M4 which is a version 2 gear box.

"Great Gun. Looks as good at it preforms (if you think it looks good). I have had many guns, Like a G&G UMG and i like how it is compact. Still, after being through a lot of experience with airsoft, i still don't know how to take my gun apart...... Does anyone know if i could take the gearbox out of my G&G and put it in this M4. Please Help.......................

"Dude your smart if you at least read the information about the gun you will read "comes with sling and battery"
by Kris O. on 11/10/2008
"The gun come with a battery. It use a crane stock type battery. Since it is the DBOY type crane stock, it will fit pretty much all the crane stock batteries.

"this gun is great.......... for the 2 days of just shooting around its awsome
....hurts like hell

"Please use the review systems for reviews only. Nothing more annoying that being bombarded with questions when you just want to know how something performs. Questions can be answered in the forums. With that said... I can't recommend a SAW or m4 over the other because I don't know what kind of intentions you have while using either of these items. If you want to provide support fire then you probably want to go with the SAW since it has a box mag. Keep in mind that it gets tiring to haul around a monster of a gun so it would be a little difficult to manuever (good exercise though ^^) If you want to be mobile and somewhat in the action then you probably won't to go with the m4.

"I got this gun a little more than a month ago and i used it 3 times and it works great!!! Its durable i droped it several times on the field and it stills shoots great. Everything except the stock and the rail covers are metal. After playing with the hopup mine is shooting at about 415 FPS with 20g bbs. I really recommend this gun.

"What is the barrel length
anf what are the size of the bushings, are they metal?
by Zach M. on 10/11/2008
"I got this gun in about a week ago and I'm definitely impressed. I'm in the military and carry a real M4 myself so finding something that felt and weighed the same as my real one was a must and this gun is about as realistic as you can get without firing real 5.56 rounds. It's a great price that really can't be beat. Well worth the money (and then some).
by Thomas P. on 10/03/2008
"Just got this gun yesterday. I do have to say, that for the price, I was quite impressed. The hop up bucking definately needs to be replaced, but over all this is a good value for the money.

@ Daniel Yori:

YES, this gun comes with a barrel extention. It's nothing special, but it will make the barrel look like a regular length M4 barrel.
by Raymond O. on 09/05/2008
"This gun is amazing! I just used it in an airsoft tournament, and it was absolutley outstanding. I would rccomend this gun for anyone who like's a small assult rifle that packs a punch.
