ARES has continued with their innovation of AEGs with their latest generation of their M4 Amoeba series AEG. The Amoeba M4 features custom furniture and receiver styling from top to bottom. Starting at the rear, the crane style stock allows you to install a variety of batteries namely the butterfly crane stock style battery. Moving onward you will find ARES's unique pistol grip that features a unique and comfortable profile along with grip texture and a vented base plate to reduce motor overheat. The upper and lower receiver of the Amoeba M4 also features a unique design by adding curvature and further detail, giving it a more futuristic and high end look than the standard M4 receiver. An enlarged magazine catch and improved straight trigger rounds out the lower receiver to not only increase ergonomics but aesthetics as well. Moving onto the front of the AEG, you will find a 13 inch rail system with modular rail segments, allowing the operator to add, remove, or replace segments dependent on the configuration required. Internally, the AMOEBA comes straight from the box with high quality internals as well as the gearbox being compatible with the aftermarket ARES fire control unit (not included) for programmable burst fire as well.The AMOEBA uses ARES's Electric Fire Control System so you can control your AMOEBA to fire in burst, semi ,and of course full auto. Inside, a MOSFET has been installed so each and every single shot is even and consistent with one full rotation of the gears. Internally the AEG also features the high end metal gears and high strength polymer piston parts which are sure to maximize performance and durability. The textured grip houses a high-torque motor that performs beautifully with nearly any style of build, which comes in handy due to the quick-change system. The 6.03mm tight-bore barrel also adds to the AEG's performance.

"If you're on the fence about this gun, buy it.

Programmable Mosfet
Easy to do tech work on
Rotary Hop Up
19-23 RPS with an 11.1v
Large Battery space
Electronic trigger is super satisfying
Gun is solidly built
Super high torque motor

Range is only average. Throw in a Prometheus Purple bucking and you'll practically double your range.
Barrel quality is good, but nothing fantastic. If you want to upgrade your barrel, a ZCI or Prometheus 6.03mm barrel will work great. Contrary to popular belief, a 6.03mm barrel is actually better than a 6.01mm for assault rifles since a 6.01mm barrel can cause feeding issues.
Gets pretty heavy once you throw on an optic and AFG.
The included mag is eh. It wobbles around a bit.

Sometimes the dust cover randomly opens
Included sights don't have much function

All in all, this gun is pretty worth it solely because of the internals. It's a great gun and will only get even better if you buy some simple upgrades for it.

"Great performance couldn’t be happier

"This is a follow up review of this rifle. I have had it for almost a year now and can't say enough about how awesome this thing is. I am am a military vet and SWAT police officer. I bought this gun to play with my 14 year old son. These are also great training tools for real steel shooters. I can train "live" in my backyard. Very cool.

I have made no modifications to the rifle and it is well broken it in. It is still chrono'ing at 360fps with .25 gr. BBs. I run .32 BBs on the field and they shoot great in this gun.

This is by FAR one of the best guns on the market out of the box. I also have a VFC Mk18 Mod 1 and this rifle runs circles around it. Like the other reviews say the provided hi cap mag is junk. I use the Evike BAMF mags and they work perfectly and are very durable.

Want to be a beast on the field? Run this gun with .32gr BBs. I get amazing accuracy and distance with them. Accurate out to 75 yards plus.

Looking for a new gun BUY THIS ONE!!!!! We have 3 different ARES rifles and they are all outstanding right out of the box. Don't let the polymer body discourage you. They are extremely robust.

The only CON I had was the motor adjustment screw on the bottom of the grip did loosen up after a month or so but a little blue locktite solved the problem.
