    Our take:  The JG M16A1-VN 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 M16A1 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.

    This M16A1 Vietnam edition features a special triangular ergonomic hand guard, making it an authentic M16A1-VN replica, as well as a fixed carry handle.  The carry handle features an authentic looking rear iron sight, adjustable for windage and elevation.

    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
    - 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 M16A1 during comparison testing
    - Premium battery and wall charger included
    - BOTTOM LINE:  If you want a gun with the same HIGH-END equipment as the Tokyo Marui M16A1, but with EVEN MORE power and accuracy AT LESS THAN HALF THE PRICE, this is your BEST BET, GUARANTEED.

    Build:  Metal gearbox, outer barrel / Polymer receiver, stock
    Firing Modes:  Semi-automatic and Full-automatic
    Muzzle Velocity:  410-420 FPS
    Magazine: 300-round high capacity (gear wind-up)
    Gearbox:  Full Metal Version 2
    Battery Type:  8.4V Large
    Inner Barrel Length:  509 mm
    Hop-up:  Adjustable
    Weight:  8 pounds

    Ammo type:  Seamless 0.20g or heavier (0.23g, 0.25g, 0.26g, 0.28g, etc) BBs.  For maximum performance and accuracy, Airsoft Megastore recommends GoldenBall ProSlick BBs which carry perfect spherical consistency and density, available at Airsoft Megastore for the lowest price on the market, guaranteed.

    Package includes:  Rifle, 8.4v large type rechargeable battery, wall charger, instruction manual, 300-round high capacity magazine

    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.

    Love this gun!
    By: AUG and M16A1 User

    "I bought this gun about 4 months ago and it has been tried and tested in long range woodlands, and CQB house-to-house. It works phenominally and so far this is the best purchase I have made for an airsoft rifle. I crono it to 430 to 440 right out of the box and to this day it gets up to the same FPS. The barrel covering and the butstock is sturdy but made out of a stronger plastic than the rail and chambering unit. I would highly recommend a sling because of its moderate size. I personally have a fear of dropping anything plastic so thats my personal reason for getting a sling. The front of the but stock has a metal ring through it for people who want to use shoulder attachment slings rather than the larger, bulky slings. In CQB it is a little hard to move around with but its FPS makes up for it. It is not a heavy gun at all so you will be able to carry it without fautiguing your arms so that makes up for it in CQB as well. It dominates in long range engagements. It works well in woodland areas, which is what I mainly play in. It weighs in at about 6 to 7 pounds. The fire rate is not the highest but it is an accurate rifle when the hop-up is adjusted correctly and sighted in correctly as well. I am a semi-auto person and with me it is normally one-shot-one-kill so this rifle is accurate. Speaking of, the iron sights are great, accurate, and easy to sight in and are fully metal. A toddler could sight them in, just a hint of how easy they are to work with. The carrying handle is non-removable just like the M16a1 used in Vietnam. But there is small hole in the top of the handle if you want to add a small rail to put a red dot or scope. The plastic cover around the barrel is removable as well so if you want to get rid of that and add a barrel rail system so it is easily customizable there as well. The battery is located in the back opening of the but stock, and as with all JG guns in my experience, is a tight fit but not as much of a hassell as some. The battery is not a mini type battery as used JG MP5s, AUGs, and M4s. It is a big battery and gives it beast power. I do use Golden Ball bbs, .20 gram. I seriously recommend them! The gun comes with a 300 round high cap STAG mag that is used in today's M4s and M16s. Basically a replica of the 30 round mags. It does not come with the 20 round replica mags that the M16a1 in Vietnam used. I highly recommend getting them! I bought two Dboys M16 Vietnam 75 round mid cap mags. They do not jam the gun like the high cap wind up mags do and the only time you get a dry fire is when the mag is empty so if you buy those, you save stress on your gun. My first time using this gun, it was drizzling rain outside and cold. Not once did this gun fail. I was up against 400+ FPS rifles and 500+ FPS sniper rifles with this M16a1 and it preformed remarkably well and never quit on me. It still works like new today after four months of use. I airsoft about once a week to give u hint of how much this rifle can take and used it in cold conditions of snow and rain s well as hot ares in dust, mud, and in areas of mass vegetation and still works beautifully. I highly recommend this gun! Good price, and will last any air soft player, beginner or veteran. Sorry for it being a long review. Just wanted to do it properly and give as much info as possible."

    "This is a solid gun it shoots about 410 fps with .25g bbs which is really good. It shreds a pop can at about 30-40 ft. Can hit a 5 inch target at 120 ft no problem. Super easy to use just don't charge the battery for more than 5hrs or it could flame up like my friends. Best part is it comes with a key for the mag. My only complaint is its a little difficult to put the battery in"

    Fantastic gun
    By: Seany-Chan

    "So yep this was my first legit gun, and its epic. I love it. Just a few things I want to say to anyone reading the other reviews, the people that say that some of the gun is plastic might not know that the original M16A1 had a lot of plastic on it to reduce the weight, so the plastic makes it more realistic. The gun feels realistic, weighs about 7 or 8 pounds, so its pretty light. I find it easy to run around with. It has great accuracy, I charged up the battery and shot it the night I got it, and it hit pop cans (and went straight through them, its powerful too) from 20 feet away in the dark, out of the box and I hadnt adjusted the sights at all. It has a high mag capacity, and its easy to shoot. Overall a great gun. Only things that arent so great, it has a huge orange tip but if you tape it it wont matter, and it is loud, but if youre hiding it wont be a problem. So pretty much I totally recommend this gun. "

    Awesome gun!
    By: Frank

    "This gun kicks so much booty! Pros: Great FPS, almost all metal, extra clips are cheap, good mag size, really comfortable to hold, removable iron sights for optics mounting, low price, more power than the original Tokyo gun at a way lower price. Cons: It's so beautiful, you won't want to take it out of the box. This is a really great gun and definitely is worth the money! "

    Great Field Gun!
    By: Daniel

    "Got this not too long ago, and am happy as ever with Jg's guns. When I got this though, it came with a detachable carry handle, and unmentioned- a full metal flash hider. The flash hider was welded to the front of the gun, and two allen wrenches and a flat heads were broken trying to take it off. Reason for taking it off- shots were going to the right of Iron sights no matter how adjusted, and I had a suppressor I was trying to put on. The battery this thing comes with is almost 3x as big as a regular 8.4v, and the battery is almost as big as the stock itself. It is also wired with Large connectors, so a big to small cable will be needed (or knowledge of how to solder) will be needed to use most other batteries. Gun is very accurate, though where the parts of the lower receiver were put together formed a plastic lip, making it painful to put In a mag. It comes with a extras you won't know about include a mag winder, front sight adjuster, and a Vietnam shorty clip comes with this instead of a regular m4 mag. Finally something to be aware of, is the hand guard will wobble a bit at first and needs to be tightened immediately. I would recommend this goody to anyone who likes M16a1s, though with a different battery since the one included hardly fits."
