Our take: The NEW Elite Force M4A1 AEG manufactured by ARES and licensed by UMAREX is an extremely realistic replica of the renowned M4A1 Carbine, that is also a high quality Airsoft gun. This M4A1 Carbine AEG has a fully retractable stock and a removable carrying handle, which exposes a top 20mm rail with plenty of room for a variety of optics. It also has a high performance full metal gearbox with high quality internals. The Elite Force M4A1 Carbine AEG is perfectly designed for close quarters combat with its short barrel (which can be outfitted with a universal red laser sight) , 6-position retractable stock, and lightweight Nylon Fiber body. With upgraded internal components, as well as a full metal reinforced gearbox, it is definitely one of the most reliable and solidly built M4A1 Carbine AEG replicas on the market!
The Elite Force M4A1 is designed and manufactured by ARES, which is known for making high-end extremely solidly constructed airsoft guns. The M4A1 is no exception, with an assortment of innovative features, and factory upgraded internals. The tactical retractable stock 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 M4A1 Carbine is much more accurate than most short barrel AEGs. With a shorter barrel for a tighter, more compact build, CQB AEGs 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 M4A1 Carbine 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 M4A1 Carbine AEG is definitely one of the most reliable, lightweight M4A1 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!

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 universal 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.
