Our take: The NEW Elite Force M4 CQB AEG manufactured by ARES and licensed by UMAREX is an all around great performing airsoft gun, that is both compact and lightweight making it perfect for CQB fields. This M4 CQB has a full RIS rail system with plenty of room for a variety of optics, fore-grips, flashlights, lasers, and even grenade launchers! It also has a high performance full metal gearbox with high quality internals. The Elite Force M4 CQB AEG is perfectly designed for close quarters combat with its short barrel, 6-position retractable stock, and lightweight Nylon Fiber body. With a full metal rail system, as well as a full metal upgraded gearbox, it is definitely one of the most reliable and solidly built M4 CQB AEGs on the market.
The Elite Force M4 CQB is designed and manufactured by ARES, which is known for making high-end extremely well built airsoft guns. The M4 CQB is no exception, with an assortment of innovative features, and factory upgraded internals. The tactical metal rail system (RIS) feels sturdy and is solidly connected to the upper receiver with no excess movement. Because of a factory-installed performance anodized aluminum inner barrel and unique one piece hop-up, the Elite Force M4 CQB is much more accurate than most short barrel CQB AEGs. With a shorter barrel for a tighter, more compact build, M4 CQBs are generally regarded as not being as accurate as their long-barreled counterparts; this generalization seems to be non-applicable to the NEW Elite Force M4 CQB AEG however, as the performance aluminum barrel and hop-up dramatically improve both its power AND accuracy.
With a high-torque 40,000 RPM motor installed directly from the manufacturer, this airsoft rifle cranks out over 800 rounds per minute on full auto mode with a 9.6v battery! This completely overhauled model features a reinforced full metal gearbox, with 8mm metal bearings, a high-strength polymer-composite piston, and full steel gears for maximum performance!
The Elite Force M4 CQB AEG is definitely one of the most reliable, lightweight M4 CQB AEGs on the market. It has an amazing amount of high quality components that you normally wouldn't find on stock AEGs. This AEG, would be selling for twice as much if it was branded as an ARES AEG!
* A durable ABS-composite Tactical Stubby Fore-Grip, and an extra 300rd Hi-Cap Magazine is INCLUDED with the package, free of charge from the manufacturer. This is a $40-value that is included with this rifle's package.
NOTE: Airsoft Megastore highly recommends using Elite Force or King Arms BB's or similar "perfect" BB's with this AEG. Due to this AEG's precision inner barrel, standard 6mm BB's will not feed properly on full auto.

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.
