"Out of the box I was pretty happy of the color and look of the gun. Hits hard and is accurate at good range. Not to heavy and not to light. Saftey feature doesnt seem to work for some reason after a game. All 7 of my mags feed well including the one it comes with so if you want any extra mags they should fit in just fine. I attached a holographic sight to the gun which adds to the look making it seem the deadliest of all. Great gun for any play look for an m4. First shooting test was with 8.4 and I can say I was impressed. Still I recommend a 9.6 to make the gun a king. You might want to add a sight to the gun to give it that awesome look. Whith all the customizing possabilities you can go wrong with this gun. Getting a LiPo soon to make the gun unstoppable.

Great ROF with 9.6v
Nice feel and weight
Aggressive look with sight attachment
Good range
sturdy mix of metal and plastic
Lipo ready

No rails on the bottom of guns (but can be customized to fit your needs)
Made teammates want to use it :)

"When I first got the box out of the gun the barrel started rotating freely, but a little tightening of a screw inside the hand guard fixed it. I used a 9.6v battery with it, and the ROF is amazing. However, of the three high cap mags I have, they all had difficulty feeding properly especially on full-auto so I recommend picking up a few mid-caps. The tight bore barrel shoots with great accuracy out of the box, but I upgraded to a longer 450mm barrel that was only 6.03mm in diameter (add a mock silencer for the longer barrel.) The gun separates much like metal M4's with you having to take out the front and back pins, unlike what the manual states.

Nice weight
High ROF
High FPS
Great accuracy

Feeding issues (not what you want in the middle of a firefight)
Came out of the box with a couple things out of place (barrel rotated, delta ring coil not in housing)
Fought to get the gun apart (longer wires would have helped)

Overall it's a great gun especially for starters, and will allow you to be competitive with most other guns. I highly recommend it.

"I honestly didnt expect much from this rifle. I was planning on just having it as a loaner gun for buddies who didnt have their own guns but wanted to try airsoft out. Boy was i wrong! This thing is a very solid M4

It is very light weight and has a 2 piece outer barrel which is great for CQB. Internals are pretty durable, you should be able to run a lipo for a long time with no issues.
You might want to swap out the Hopup bucking for something a bit better. Maybe even RHop it if you are adventurous.

-Durable internals
-Polymer Body gives strength without sacrificing weight.
-Relatively LiPo ready. Havent had to do any work yet, maybe some AoE and/or piston swap in future if needed.
-350fps is perfect for midrange-CQB play.
-Accepts most m4 mags
-No Proprietary parts internally or externally to my knowledge
(I have a love-hate relationship with my KWAs and Classic Army's for this reason)
-Externally solid in most areas

-Hopup bucking isnt the best (Get a new bucking)
-Range isnt amazing
-RoF is slow, (Get a better motor)

Could go either way:
-Some people may whine about the plastic body, I personally own a custom Full metal G&P Polarstar m4 and I have no problems with polymer body guns. As long you dont:

A) Throw it off a cliff
B) Run it over with your car
C) Rage and slam your gun on the ground
D) Give it to Chuck Norris
E) Toss it into a volcano

You will be fine.

A simple SHS torque motor and King Arms bucking upgrade will run you around $40-50 total, but after that, this gun will be a perfect CQB/Midrange gun. Its lightweight but robust frame combined with its sturdy internals definitely make this a great gun for the starter-medium experienced player

"I got this gun today and I fell in love with it! After that is i unjammed and made it fire, Unless im just a total noob at this... This gun is great my Brothers fell in love with this gun and they wanted one themselves. I got a 9.6v battery(nunchuck) and it put a hole through the sticky target that is available in the accessories.

Highly Accurate
High ROF
High FPS(chrono'd at 425-435 with .28bbs)
Feels realistic.

Mag was hard to get in(unless it was just my gun)
Jammed on the first shot,but when it was fixed everything went smooth.
Barrel got wobbly after two hours(easy fix)

With the cons i still give this a 5/5 :)
by Matt K. on 01/12/2012
"i just got this gun today and wow it feels awesome. with the matrix gearbox already installed it has great power and rate of fire. the 6.04mm inner barrel also helps alot with accuracy right out of the box. very good gun would recomend it to anyone that knows how to swap out bodies

great rof
great fps
great rps
has thightbore barrel instaled
has matrix m110 gearbox instaled
very nice feel

"This gun is the best ever!! it shoots really hard and is dead on accurate to about 75 yards. The fire rate is amazing for how much power it has. It works best with a 9.6v 2600 mah nunchuck battey. it doesnt come with a battery so i would recomend that one. The hi-cap magazine it comes with is all metal. I would highly recomend this gun to anyone.

"My brother got this gun it is amazing

trust worthy
perfect aim
it is tan/green so it can blend in to trees
(he got the first one in stock)

"Would a Tenergy Airsoft Crane Stock Large Type Battery - 9.6V NiMh 4200mAh
battery fit in the compartment? If not, can someone suggest a good battery that would fit?

Webmaster: I recommend the 9.6V 2300mah nun-chuck battery.
by Kevin S. on 10/12/2010
"Can I put just one foregrip rail on this or do I need buy to buy a whole RIS for it?

Webmaster: either way works.
by Michael G. on 10/09/2010
"Would i be able to put a m115 spring in with this stock? would the motor pull it back fine?

Webmaster: Yes, of course. It already have a M120 inside ...just FYI. So if it pulls M120, it definitely pulls M115.

"This is the best deal I've ever gotten on a gun. It's more accurate than my friends Dboy Kalash ak74u! Let me give you a list of pros and cons:
Shoots hard, quick with a low voltage battery
Very accurate, up to 80 feet
Metal charging handle, dust cover, sights, outer barrel, sling hooks, buffer tube, gearbox, mag, etc.
Vented motor heatsink!
Little wobble

Plastic reciever, that's all I could find. And even then, the reciever seems very sturdy and reliable.

"Just used my gun in a match for the first time, and it is AWESOME!!! its FPS was perfect for CQB at the place i go to, and its range and accuracy is just top notch. For $100, this gun is better than any other gun twice the price. The internals are better than expected, but if you want to go higher rps, you should get the Matrix ball bearing spring guide. The spring guide is metal, but no bearings. The externals are not cheap at all. They will hold for a long time. It is light weight, and a perfect AEG for a starter, or some who is on a budget (me). I would definitely buy this gun over any other if i would have to buy another gun. I recommend this to everyone who reads this comment. If not, either expect a cheap gun, or expect to spend a lot of money.

"This gun is very good in many different ways.

Let me just start off by saying there are no cons. :)

This gun has great fps, rof and Accuracy.

The accuracy is what defines this gun.
although it is an aeg it has a 6.04 tight bore already installed witch helps a lot

right now i use it as a sniper with a scope and a short mag and it is sickly awesome.

although its abs body it is very solid but not heavy.

Also it is pretty loud and you need a 9.6 nun chuck.

If you don't know witch one that is here is a link for it on this site

"Great gun, decent fps.
People consider it low but I think it is just a penis envy type of thing. Everyone likes to say their gun shoots a little faster than the next guys. But really 360~390 fps with a .2 is more than enough to rack up kills, well that is if you're any good. :P Perfect speed for most fields.

Accuracy is awesome on this gun, tight bores are the way to go.
Very sturdy construction, things were kinda tight when i first got it, but nothing a little silicon oil can't fix.

the barrel piece does come off like in the video, very quick and easy if you want to grab a silencer or anything.

ROF is terrifyingly fast. You do not want to be on the business end of this gun. It might actually cut a man in half... Lol jk

The Lipoly gives it a very quick response time, and the M100 spring makes the ROF at least 20 rps.

Overall, best $99 M4 you will ever find, guaranteed.
Like seriously, if you find a better deal for under a hundred bucks, you can punch me in the mouth. lol

"I'm gonna be honest. I got this in the Box of Awesomeness and I immediately thought I'm just gonna sell it. Then I test shot it and the distance was surprising. The ROF is poop and the externals are cheap. Internals I'm not sure but from what I've heard AIM parts are top notch. I like this gun and it has a lot of potential to be one of my best guns. Thanks evike! Although I wouldn't recommend using a lipo.

Good internals
Flash hider isn't glued

Externals suck but metal bodies are available on the page above the reviews

Great gun for a project or beginner
