Our take: The all-new, full metal COLT M4A1 Carbine with fully licensed COLT trademarks manufactured by legendary Airsoft manufacturer KING ARMS is one of the most solidly built M4A1s available at this pricing point. Designed with reliability and performance in mind, this King Arms COLT M4A1 packs a SERIOUS punch and is extremely realistic to boot, weighing in at over 7 POUNDS with solid metal construction all-around.
Carrying full Colt trademarks, this AEG features a full metal body (full metal receiver, barrel, and internals), a re-designed high performance full metal gearbox w/ 7mm bearings, high performance gears/bushings/piston, and a high-torque motor to drive the gearbox with authority. It is one of the best choices for an AEG because its lack of compromise between realism and power. Previously only available in Europe, this model is now available in the United States for the lowest price on the market courtesy of Cybergun.
The rifle features a retractable rear stock for versatility and a 14.5 inch one-piece outer barrel to make a solid front end of the weapon. The metal receiver disassembles with ease (pop out locking body pins and you're ready to access internals/make upgrades/perform maintenance on the rifle), and one of the coolest features is the functional locking bolt catch. This makes the rifle EXTREMELY realistic, as this is a feature rarely found on electric AEG rifles.
Battery and charger are NOT included. Nunchuck-style battery will work with this rifle.

Battery Charger Recommendation: Although this fully automatic airsoft rifle comes with a standard wall charger to charge the battery, 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 more importantly,also automatically shut off once the battery is fully charged to avoid overcharged batteries.
