Our take: The JG M16A3 full size metal gearbox AEG is a fierce airsoft rifle that packs a lot of power. It comes with a full sized 300 round high capacity magazine, a full metal barrel, a full metal gearbox and adjustable hop-up to make this rifle one of the best performing and most realistic AEGs under $300. Perhaps one of the rifles that have branded the American military's powerful presence, the M16A3 is a serious airsoft electric rifle for any airsoft player. Because it is compatible with Tokyo Marui parts and many other aftermarket upgrade parts, it can be easily customized and upgraded.
Unlike the traditional M16A2, the M16A3 comes with a removable carry handle. When removed, the weaver base mount is revealed, for easy optics/scope mounting.
Product Alert: To avoid confusion, you should always check the rear stock of the rifle to determine the production run of the product. The newest M16A3 rifles with factory upgrades such as one-piece tight bore barrel, enhanced gearbox and high torque motor set up, and enhanced metallic internals will always feature an enhanced, modified rear stock (see pictures). JG M16A3 AEG rifles, even some claiming to be the newest/enhanced models, without the modified rear stock are most likely older production run models, manufactured prior to 2010.
Newest Production Run Upgrades:
- High performance barrel for maximum accuracy and performance.
- M120 Spring installed along with reinforced full metal gearbox and high-performance bushings/piston/internals
- This AEG is 100% compatible with Tokyo Marui parts
- Removable carry handle for easy scope/optics mounting
- Adjustable hop-up (TM-compatible hop-up unit) and selectable fully automatic/semi automatic firing modes, along with a functional safety mode
- 380-430 FPS + firing power ensures that you will DOMINATE any airsoft game. Accuracy and power better than that of TM M16A3 during comparison testing
- This newer M16A3 model replaces the older JG M16A4 (which other sellers are still selling as "the newest," offering noticeably better power, accuracy, and quality for a minimal price increase. Still features a high-capacity 300 round magazine
- Premium battery and wall charger included
- BOTTOM LINE: If you want a gun with the same HIGH-END equipment as the Tokyo Marui M16A3, but with EVEN MORE power and accuracy AT LESS THAN HALF THE PRICE, this is your BEST BET, GUARANTEED.

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.
