I got the AEG SR-16 from an the Evike Box of Super Awesomeness "GET OUT AND AIRSOFT!" Edition (thursday), which was about one hundred fifty bucks, came with 6 magazines, 9.6v 1100mAh battery and some basic starter stuff.
After one skirmish, I have to say I'm impressed so far.
Well built body and internals, most of the AEG feels very sturdy*
Metal spring guide, non-bearing.
Hard spring, pushes at 400fps with 0.20g's, and just over 350 with 0.25g's.
Comes with a pretty decent air seal set, and barrel**
Looks pretty sick with an EOTech or ACOG replica.
Comes with a black metal flash hider replacement.
**Barrel is not as advertised, inner barrel measured to be about 278mm, not 363mm.
Need 110mm barrel extension/mock silencer to cover a 363mm upgrade.
Orange tip glued on, required hot water soak + Locking Pliers + brute force (with extreme caution)to remove.
ACM high-cap mags are kind of hard to cram in the magwell.
Guarder 363mm 6.02 barrel has a weird hop up nub cutout theoretically should work but it doesn't agree with the hopup and bucking position.
Silicon hop-up nub is very soft.
*Stock always wobbles a little bit.
No sling mounts anywhere.
No side rail covers
Pretty compact gun good for starters looking to get into airsoft.
Very reliable backup gun for me (until i get my M14 DMR working properly).
