"This gun has worked fine for me so far, though I've only had it for a couple months. I've probably fired 500-1000 shots out of it and have had very few issues. The only problem I've had recently was that the hop-up was back-channeling pressure and causing the weapon to double feed, but I fixed this with a quick adjustment. The bolt stop only stopped last shot for the first couple weeks, but I guess its no big deal.

-Metal (albeit handgaurds and grip)

-Mags are expensive
-Plastic handgaurd
-Bolt finish wears quick
-Bolt stop malfunctions

Overall, this gun is a great middle of the road GBBR with the capability to use gas or CO2 mags and has a nice heavy feel.

good kick
high fps
easy to field strip
bolt lock works 10% of the time
mags are unreliable(leak,jam and,hard to load)
mag well was not formed right so 20rds wouldnt fit(a file fixed that)
the rear sight spring was missing
the rails were not in spec
(possibly mine was a lemon)

"As a member of the us army this rifle is amazing. The 30 round magazines are extremely realistic also the recoil as well. The weight is also surprsingly close to the real m16 A3. I do not own this rifle yet but my next paycheck I will. If you want a good rifle thats close in realism to the real steel weapon I highly reccomend this gbb. I absolutely love how external real steel parts such as rail systems and pistol grips can be attached. Im absolutely amazed by this rifle. And the price is so much better than some more pricey gbb rifles I looked at. And this exceeds all my expectations by price fps and overall performance and look. This will no doubt be my dmr. For $300 I would buy this rifle, itll be worth it

"Love this gun! it is a great gun for experienced players or law enforcement training. But be aware..... you will spend a lot on this gun to get it to be where you want it. I bought six co2 mags for it and it cost me 220 bucks and it still has the same amount of ammo as a single midcap! but if money isn't an issue than you need one.

"This gun is amazing. Full scale, realistic operation, accurate from the word "go", and it can accept real steel rifle parts! Need more convincing still?

I ordered this gun and got it in amazing time (using the cheapest shipping option) and in great condition. Having experience with a real AR I found that when I put it together I felt like I was holding my real rifle. I took this out to my back yard and was able to hit targets up to 60 meters with the iron sights.

I have had this gun for a while now and I have turned it into a DMR that has seen me through a fair number of milsim ops. I was able to take my real steel DD Omega X 12inch rail and attach it with no problems. I added an old Magpul PRS stock and an ergonomic AR grip with no problems either. This gun accepts real steel external accessories at almost every point of the gun.

If you want this gun I suggest grabbing a few of the 20 round mags to go with it. They look great and function just as well.

Forget all of the bad images you have of GBBs and WE, this gun is a clear testament that those rumors are NOT true. If you want to hit targets from 100 meters without excessive upgrades and hassle then this is the gun for you. If you want to add more realism to your milsim experience then this gun is for you. If you want a great looking, well-functioning, and completely entertaining gun; then this is the one for you.

"I got this for Christmas. Great gun. heavy, I also got a r.i.s which adds some weight.
Solid accuracy(I plan on making this my dmr.)
A little maintenance and some regular cleaning this thing will run for a long time

"I just bought 3 gas blow back rifles from WE. The best is the FNH SCAR however this M16A3 is very close. The kick is wonderful. The rifle is balanced very well and the quality is pretty good except with the fore grip being a little loose. I highly recommend it over the WE G39 rifles. It, like the SCAR just feels better.

"This rifle is amazing. When i first got it, it came in two peices which takes about 60 seconds to put together. The dustcover got jammed to it took full force to open it the first time, but after that it opens easily. The bolt catch doesnt work all the time but its fine. The flash hider comes off easily(its not glued on). I would seriously recommend this.
