Our take: To sum it up into one sentence, the DBoys M4 RDW full metal compact AEG rifle is one of the best-designed, most effective airsoft combat-ready AEGs to hit the market in a long, LONG time.
Airsoft Megastore believes in factory-direct sourcing for the best quality quality at the best prices, and we wouldn't have it any other way with this rifle. For those looking at the VFC RDW or even the Bravo RDW, you may want to look again. It is hands down the BEST choice for those looking into making a purchase on this unique rifle for 2 solid reasons:
1. The Bravo RDW is OEM manufactured by DBoys. It is the identical product with slightly different packaging, at a higher price ($220-$240).
2. The VFC RDW was the developmental target for the DBoys M4 RDW. DBoys has made a superior product that replicates the VFC RDW model and improves upon it on many levels: Power, Quality, Accuracy, Durability, and most noticeably, PRICE (the VFC is about DOUBLE the cost of this DBoys M4 RDW).
Aside from those two key points, the DBoys RDW is simply a blast to own and shoot. Full metal construction means it is geared for realism and long-term reliability. Its compact, versatile design (complete with folding rear stock) means that it will excel in any firing situation. If you ever shoot one of these, it will be hard to go back to your traditional AR-style rifle because of so many tactical advantages this rifle has. Three of our favorite features of this rifle, besides power, accuracy, range, etc, are:
1. Ambidextrous mag release and firing mode selector switch! This makes a HUGE difference on your effectiveness in the field.
2. Flip-up front and rear sights. Want to use a reflex/red dot sight? No problem, flip 'em down. Prefer traditional iron sights? Flip them right back up.
3. Mid-cap magazine included. How'd you like to shoot 120 rounds without reloading? It's an amazing experience. And now, you can try it with the magazine that's included. Even a BB speedloader is provided!
The enhanced/reinforced full metal gearbox complete with all-new composite polymer components works in conjunction with DBoys' ultra high-torque motor to deliver staggering power with a way-above-average ROF (rate of fire). Full metal construction inside and out ensures operational stability, without compromising performance. It is one of the most well-thought out designs we've seen on a compact airsoft AEG.
The DBoys M4 RDW features flip-up iron sights, integrated rails (RIS), a PEQ box, metal folding rear stock, and full metal gearbox/barrel. It is compatible with standard M4 low/mid/hi-cap magazines.
Airsoft Megastore's CUSTOM RDW package includes everything mentioned, PLUS:
- TWO (2x) RDW 300-rd metal high capacity magazines, complete with magazine clamp! This means you can expand your firepower with the ability to store 600-rounds
- ONE (1x) TacForce Full Metal 7-Intensity Adjustable Red Dot Scope for quick, precise aiming. Great for taking out multiple targets with minimal sighting lag.

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.
