Our take: The full metal gearbox CYMA M14 SOCOM with metal barrel sniper AEG rifle is hot off the production line with improvements and is the best M14 SOCOM AEG on the market under $250. It can keep up with the best of the big guys at only a fraction of the cost. With a muzzle velocity that overpowers even Tokyo Marui AEGs and a reinforced full metal gearbox, this CYMA M14 is ready to rock and roll. With a full metal precision-crafted barrel and its full metal gearbox,the CYMA M14 SOCOM shoots at an extremely high FPS without compromising its sniper-accuracy, even in full automatic shooting mode.
Value-wise, this M14 is the among the highest ranking bang-for-your-buck premium airsoft AEGs. With a full metal scope mount ($50 value), a rifle sling mount, batteries and charger ($50 value), and a slew of other metallic parts that make this gun all the more realistic included free of charge, this gun is ready to rock and roll, right out of the box, all for a nominal price that is less than HALF of that of the Tokyo Marui M14 which has less power and less metallic parts.
For this newest production run model, build material on the internals and hop-up assembly have been improved to provide a smoother power delivery, making for more powerful shots from this already-excellent M14 AEG while bettering component durability. The motor has been swapped for CYMA's newest ultra high-torque motor for an extremely high ROF [rate of fire] never before seen on an M14, making this one of the BEST M14s on the market, bar none. With a fully charged battery, the CYMA M14 is able to fire at over 830 rounds per minute at close to 400 FPS, a feat that is simply amazing!
* *Forward integrated universal sight/scope rail allows for easy scope-mounting. Check out our selection of red dot and zooming scopes, the PERFECT compliment to increase accuracy on this powerful M14. This AEG is capable of handling most standard zooming and non-zooming scopes.

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.
