Our take: The ICS M4A1 Tubular RAS (short) AEG sports a shortened 8.5-inch tubular handguard CNC machined from a solid block of anodized aluminum. Included with the free-float handguard are Picatinny rail segments that you can position along the slotted openings. For even more mounting options for aftermarket accessories like lights, lasers and foregrips, additional rail attachment points are located at the 2, 6 and 10 o’clock positions. Ample rail space above the handguard and receiver also lets you run dot sights and scopes, while still being able to switch to the back-up front and rear iron sights for CQB engagements. Similar to other M4 series AEGs from ICS, this airsoft M4 features a split gearbox design that allows you to get into it quickly and easily. This lets you switch out the internals with aftermarket parts, including pistons, springs and gear sets. If you’re looking for an M4 AEG with a carbine-length barrel, quick field stripping design, and modular furniture for tactical accessories, the ICS M4A1 Tubular RAS is perfect for players looking for intermediate to advanced AEG.
NOTE: Battery & Charger not included. We recommend using this VB Power 7.4V Nunchuck battery paired with the Intellect Volt Balance Charger.
ICS is one of the one of the oldest and most reputable airsoft companies out of Taiwan, and is strongly focused on creating cutting edge airsoft products for every level of airsoft. ICS was one of the first companies to start production of split gearbox designs, which enable airsoft players to quickly make internal adjustment to their AEGs performance. They also were one of the first to include a spring release feature, allowing airsoft players to quickly release their gearbox spring tension preventing the gearbox from locking up. ICS continues to produce high quality and high performance airsoft guns for a more reasonable price than many high end airsoft companies. ICS has also developed a plastic body series of airsoft guns, perfect for beginner to intermediate players on a budget.

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.
