||Before I get to actual review of the gun, I want to mention that this is my 5th gun (Jg M4, E1 M4, TM P90, E1 Hk416, AGM 416, and finally this) and that I bought this a little more than 6 months ago from the date of this review.
Ok, so I've gotten plenty of field use since buying this and I'm very satisfied. G&G's stock 6.04mm barrels really make a difference in long range accuracy (in addition to the M16's longer barrel) as opposed to chinese or even japanese stock barrels. Additionally, the gearbox quality is much much better than any of my previous guns (the e1/agm models seem to be dumped in grease before being shipped) with mostly reinforced parts and stronger materials. Stock FPS was about 410 when I first got it, however, 6 months later its closer to 350 but that's to be expected given the time. Range peaked at roughly 150-170ft with .20g, low wind, and optimal hopup performance which is amazing considering its a stock gun (targets were man-sized, though I beleive i did a 25ft test once with 1-3 groupings). The build materials are awesome - 0 wobbles so far- and I really think I could beat someone to death with the gun without doing much, if any damage to the rifle. Finally, another good aspect of the gun that most people skip in reviews is the power usage. I use 8.4v batteries mostly (I prefer the one-shot-one-kill strategy versus the lets-waste-all-of-our-ammo-on-one-guy strategy) and the rifle puts out maybe 11-14 BPS consistantly in a full day of play without changing the battery (most people really over exagerate this).
Age Resistance: 5/5
Overall: 5 outa 5
-The only thing I don't like about the g&g m16a3 is that the charging handle is non-functional
-this isn't a great CQB weapon (not meant to be) so I recomend a smaller secondary (i use a KWA MP7 and a pistol style m203)
-If you're considering buying a JG or similar brand because they're cheaper, think twice! When it breaks you'll be wishing you went with higher quality! :p
hope this helps!
