Our take: Aside from an authentic Knight’s Armament insignia etched onto the lower receiver, along with unique serial numbering, the ARES M4A1-E URX Edition AEG Rifle comes pre-installed with an electric firing control system gearbox. This lets you program the rifle to shoot in 3-round burst and other preset modes using an ARES electric programmer (not included). It also increases trigger response and allows you to use LiPo batteries with minimal wear on internal components. Externally, this M4 airsoft gun is incredibly rugged. The buffer tube, outer barrel and upper/lower receivers are constructed entirely out of aluminum alloy. A replica of KAC’s URX 3.1 10.75" handguard, the free-float rail system is CNC-machined from a solid block of aluminum. Although ARES designed this airsoft M4 AEG for outdoor fields, you can use the quick-change gearbox to swap out the spring and drop down the muzzle velocity to meet indoor field requirements. If you’re looking for an intermediate to advanced AEG that can be configured to fire in 3-round burst and other modes, your best option is to go with the new ARES fully licensed Knight’s Armament M4A1-E MOSFET AEG.
NOTE: You must purchase an ARES Electric Programmer separately to configure 3-round burst and other preset firing modes. Purchase here!

Battery Charger Recommendation: Airsoft Megastore recommends the use of a smart charger to avoid overcharging the battery (overcharged batteries may cause decreased airsoft gun performance and may shorten battery life significantly). Smart chargers not only shorten charge time significantly (up to 800% faster charging) but also automatically shut off once the battery is fully charged to avoid overcharged batteries.
