"I have had this S&T M3A1 for a little over a month and shot about a magazine a day (its a wind up and they claim it holds roughly 520bbs). It is mostly made of steel and even has that nice grayish parkerization color to it making it an accurate replica of the real steel. It fires at a slower cycle rate (compared to your standard M4, AK47, Thompson, etc.) the lower rpm on the airsoft smg is again perfect for closely replicating the real steel. It fire at a constant and accurate (I emphasize accurate) range maximizing at around 30 to 40 yards. I am a radioman for a WWII and Vietnam War airsoft teams and believe if you are in the market for a gun that could take a beating from the field, want a compact and reliable piece to carry into battle, then this is a great choice! A small con I have about the gun is that the magazine release button on my is a bit short and I have to hold the magazine while firing. I can solve the problem easily by filing a bit of the magazine catch and allowing the main part of the catch to grasp the magazine completely. "For 165 bucks you're really getting more then you paid for with this sub gun. The gun is solid from muzzle to wire stock and clocking in around 350 fps more or less consistently. On top of that for an inner barrel as short as it it the range is phenomenal , even using it's archaic irons youre able to hit a man size target at 150 feet with no problems, and in my case 200 feet is somehow obtained without arching the rounds. I have to say S&T is really stepping up thier quality with this sub gun. I hope they release mid caps soon so the buyers dont have to scrounge up ares mid caps as a mag alternative. Overall if youre debating between the ICS and S&T , the S&T is hands down the better alternative in terms of build quality, feel, out of the box performance, and inherent feel of handling. In a side note if you can find a grease gun cone flash hider it will act as a noise amplifier and all but deminish the sound of the AEG firing , instead you only hear loud satisfying pops that can be heard across the field. Overall a definite purchase for anybody doing WWII, Korea, or vietnam impression, or even if you just enjoy classic firearms "Is 6 stars available? No, only 5? This gun deserves at least 6 stars, it is hands down the best gun I have ever owned. I run a ww2 US loadout, and this thing has never failed me. It is an incrediblely faithful replica, from the sights, the retractable/removable stock, down to the welds along the frame. The internals are great for under 200 dollars, good gears, good spring, great piston head, full with steel ball bearings, and a pretty good piston body.
pretty good rpm
easy to remove orange tip (can be reattached)
Reliable, will not break
proprietary gear box
not a great starter gun
If you know your way around an airsoft gun pretty well, this gun will be easy to maintain. Read More Reviews Write a Review

Matrix WWII M3A1 Full Metal Grease Gun Airsoft AEG
Besides being the most authentic WWII collector's piece with true to original replicated frame, the Matrix M3 is also the most advantageous on battle! Unlike the ARES or ICS version, this M3 is equipped with a hi-capacity magazine (while taking the ARES Mid-cap) to give you the most fire-power in a versatile system!
The M3 was an American .45-caliber submachine gun adopted for U.S. Army service in 1942. The M3 was commonly referred to as the "Grease Gun" or simply "The Greaser", owing to its visual similarity to the mechanic's tool.
The S&T M3A1 is a perfect replica of the original which makes it great as a collector's item. The internal system is a high quality, innovative metal gearbox which makes it more than capable in the field.
Comparable to the ARES M3, which retails for $320, this redesign has a compatible gearbox but with better performance. The battery in this version is wired through the pistol grip with a cap, making it part of the gun, instead of in the magazine. The freed-up magazine is now a 520 round Hi-Cap, but the S&T can still take the ARES mid-cap.
Features: Uses a 520 round hi-cap magazine for the ultimate gaming advantage! Battery stores in frame!
