"I think it is time I update my opinion. While this gun is a decent starting gun, it could use some improvement. The gun itself is strong, but i did break the stock, and if you attach metal rails it will become rather front heavy, especially with a needed peq box. I also recommend a 6.01 tightrope barrel, because the 6.03 I believe it comes with doesn't improve much. This is a great deal, trust me, and with a nice chest rig and eye pro your ready to go, but after a while, you may wanna upgrade the gun a bit. And mine came with a 8.4v battery, not a 9.6v that was mentioned in the description. This is a great deal, especially for 160$ on epic deals, but if you want something more than a starter gun, but something else unless you just wanna work on it. "First, I want to start off by saying, I am an experienced tech, and even though this was my first good airsoft gun, I have learned lots about airsoft and particularly AEGs since I have bought this gun.
Anyways, it is a pretty basic m4. Wired to the front with 16 ga wires ( good), and small tamiya connectors, as well as a fuse. It has a polymer body, but don't let this deter you from buying. It decreases weight, and is still VERY durable. I have dropped it many times and it still works fine. I only had two problems.... The first is very minor but still present. This gun has a really weak bolt return spring, and one time when I pulled back the charging handle, it stretched out and snapped. All this means is that when I pull back the charging handle, I have to push it forward instead of releasing it. Once again, no biggie. The second though, is kinda bad. The outer barrel became very loose after moderate use of play, and I couldn't figure out why. I later found out that the barrel nut, or barrel star, was loose, but is too sharp to turn by hand, so I had to blow $50 on a armorers wrench, but you will need that anyway if you are going to modify and m4. That fixed the wobble for now, but I haven't skirmished yet after that, so I'll see how it holds up.
Polymer body,( lightweight)
Great stock 6.04 mm brass barrel.
Heavy ( for some people)
Slight barrel wobble at first
Weak slide return spring
Over all, this is a great gun. Good price, especially for the package. One thing I forgot to mention is that the 4 mags that come with this gun work great, but I've found the 3 flash mags wind quicker and more efficiently than the factory direct aim top mag.
4/5 stars. GET THIS GUN! "I bought this rifle and was impressed at first. That was quickly changed.when I first got the rifle it wasn't feeding properly and it needed to be shipped back. When I recieved it the 2nd time the entire front barrel assembly just fell off when I was using it. Then I recieved again after paying to fix it and the hop broke when I was adjusting it. It shoots alright but it won't last unless you take every good care of it and change out a few things. Also when I recieved it the actual fps was about 365. Read More Reviews Write a Review

Review: Initial Look & Feel:
Solid, durable and realistic. Everything you'd expect for great value. Matte black finish. 1:1 scale to a real steel M4 Carbine. Nice logo. Expect more and spoil yourself today.
Performance: Air Seal:
The Matrix M4 shoots an average of 30~50 FPS higher than most other brands with the same spring installed. Which means it has superb air seal and energy efficient. Less work on the Motor and Gear only means a more durable AEG.
With 6.04mm tight bore barrel already installed, it is also much more accurate than any other M4 AEG under $120.
This AEG is completed with all Matrix parts directly from Matrix's Taiwan factory, resulting the best factory direct value per dollar sportsline rifle in the market. The firing is smooth and the rate of fire is great with good accuracy and range.
Upon receiving the first batch, our technician fired 10,000 rounds (35 m4 hicap / 11.1V 1350mah Lipoly battery) on randomly selected five Matrix Tactical Systems M4 and the result was amazing. Each gun test was completed within 1 hour to really "stress test" these AEG. After the first 5000 round within the hour, the motor starts to get warm, and gets pretty hot by the 35th hi-cap. One anti-reversal latch broke during the stress test. To those that the above statements makes any sense to, this AEG is more durable and stable than most we have seen. It is more "Lipoly Ready" than any AEG out there, however, we still recommend only experienced gamers to use li-poly, as the gaming advantage comes with responsibilities.
