SRC CompSpec
SRC's CompSpec series of full metal gearbox, high-performance AEGs are designed for the value-minded Airsoft enthusiast who wants both quality and performance at prices that were previously unheard of.  For all too long, Airsoft Megastore has heard customers say time and time again that they'd love to get their hands on a SRC AEG with a full metal gearbox, but "ONLY IF" pricing was better.  Well, we've definitely taken these comments into direct consideration in carrying the new CompSpec line of AEGs, designed to take the AEG market by storm even in a time of uncertainty in the Airsoft market.

Simply put, CompSpec, or Competion-Spec SRC models are durable AEG models with high performance full metal gearboxes that are strategically tuned to deliver upwards of 350-380 FPS of power and stay BELOW most indoor/outdoor Airsoft field limits and hence, are "field-legal" without modifications.  Oh, and in case you haven't already noticed from their AMAZING pricing points, CompSpec AEGs have to all of the above while delivering UNBEATABLE VALUE.

As the #1 fastest-growing Airsoft retailer in the nation, Airsoft Megastore has made a huge commitment to SRC in order to secure top-tiered volume discounts on the entire CompSpec line of AEGs.  We are proud to carry the entire SRC CompSpec line of high-performance AEGs at the lowest prices on the market, bar none.

Our take:  The SRC CompSpec M16A3 Full Size Carbine is a high performance metal gearbox AEG rifle that has an extended M16-length barrel, allowing it to shoot with a bit more power and accuracy than more compact carbine-style rifles.  It is also extremely durable and realistic, and features a full metal gearbox, a high-performance cylinder crafted from aluminum, and a high torque motor.  And best of all, it is the ONLY Taiwan-made metal gearbox M16A3 AEG rifle on the market for UNDER $180, and is available EXCLUSIVELY at Airsoft Megastore.

This M16 has a full rear stock, allowing it to store and use large-type batteries (which typically hold up to 3x the charge of smaller batteries).  The carry handle is removable (revealing a receiver-top rail on which you can mount optics).  The full stock is pre-wired to accept BOTH mini-type AND large-type batteries, as it has a standard mini-type plug w/ a large-type adapter INCLUDED straight from the factory.

One of the most unique features about the SRC M16A3 is its receiver.  Unlike older ABS receivers such as receivers found on Tokyo Marui AEGs, the SRC M16A3 has a fiber polymer reinforced ABS receiver, which means a higher level of build quality and more significantly, DURABILITY, all-around.  The receiver features a higher density than most standard receivers, and as a result, is more durable and less prone to cracking or breaking due to an inadvertent drop or collision.

With an extended length barrel, the M16A3 is extremely proficient at firing off high-velocity, high-accuracy shots to render opponents with shorter weapons defenseless against the M16A3's tremendous range.

Unbeatable Value:  In an Airsoft market full of rising prices, it is extremely refreshing to find a FULL METAL GEARBOX, highly durable and realistic AEG rifle for such a bargain, let alone one from SRC, one of the most reputable and well-regarded Airsoft manufacturers to come out of Taiwan.  In our opinion, the entire CompSpec line of AEGs was built to appease Airsofters who wanted to get an AFFORDABLE SRC.

Operation:  Electric automatic
Build:  Fiber polymer reinforced ABS body / Metal gearbox, barrel
Firing Modes:  Semi-automatic and full-automatic w/ functional safety
Muzzle Velocity:  340-380 FPS with 0.20g seamless BBs
Rate of Fire:  750-850 rounds per minute
Magazine:  300rd High Capacity (gear wind-up)
Hop-up:  Adjustable/integrated
Gearbox:  Full Metal Version 2
Motor:  SRC High-Torque
Internals:  High strength polymer bushings w/ aluminum cylinder and reinforced gear-set
Barrel:  Metallic composite
Battery Type:  8.4v mini-type battery
Inner Barrel Length:  509 mm
Weight:  6.5 pounds (extremely realistic)

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, instruction manual, 300-round high capacity magazine

Note:  Battery and charger are NOT included, as is the case with most SRC-manufactured AEGs.  For the best value and performance, we recommend getting a 8.4v large battery or 8.4v mini battery and a universal smart charger.

Battery Charger Recommendation:  This AEG DOES NOT come with a battery or charger.  Although this fully automatic airsoft rifle can use 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.

Pretty great

"I got this gun 4 months ago and I'm very pleased with it so far everything feels solid and it has never jammed. I only had one gun that could even come close to this and it was a Well L96 sniper. Pros; Good Fps & Accuracy Great feel and look Battery easy to get in and out Rail fits most scopes and optics Reliable,, never had a prob And i put 4 out of 4 shots into my brothers Ear at the same time which was kinda funny for me,,, he was crying but nobody cares.. Cons; No forward RIS but i think you can get on to put on it On mine the Front sight was a little crooked which was easy to fix. Overall a great gun for the price and a good choice for middle level players, the ideal gun for being a Spotter"

"Its built very solid and shoots good and very accurately and fast. I used the reccomended 8.4v battery. The rifle has a removable large type connector. Take it off, and its a small type connector. It shoots hard and i didnt chrono it, but the FPS seems like its correct. Great gun to have overall and I'm very satisfied!"

"I just bought this rifle a couple of days ago and the original price was 109 dollars within the next two days it had gone up to 119 dollars kinda wasn't expecting that. But I was able to still get the money and buy the rifle and a battery plus a smart charger. I am rating this at a 4 star because with the research I have done this is a great buy only .....I haven't got it yet so I cannot rate this as a 5 star. But other than that Airsoft megastore is now my new favorite shop. Great job guys keep it up."

good for price

"Quality rifle. excellent deal for the price. couldn't pass it up. It is a shame that i have to coat this with a bit of negativity. While this is a rather realistic rifle, i do believe that either something in the gearbox was faulty or it was my own doing. Note of reccomendation: know that you have to adjust AEG motors from time to time. If you have no clue, look it up online -motor adjustment and motor alignment- it'll save you a heck of a fuss. I'll probably upgrade the damaged internals anyway. *Sighs* I enjoy my 5.56 AR15 better anyhow. No gears or motors to worry about."

The store is amazing. I have found there items that I could not find in other stores which makes it the best. I have made questions and inquires about products and the customer service has responded super fast with accurate answers. All my products have arrived in excellent conditions in spite of other stores. My last product came late because it was rescheduled but that was UPS fault I think. I would like to thank Matthew for his exceptional customer service. Whenever you need help, please try to contact him. My advice, buy in Airsoft Megastore, they have coupons and the widest variety of airsoft products. RandyLoy, USA
I ordered a gun sling a couple weeks ago. Unfortunately, one of the clips broke. After a few email correspondings with a customer service representative named Jun (my emails did not show a last name), AMS sent me a replacement sling for free. I did not even have to send my clip back. AMS is a terrific store and I plan on doing more business with them. They were polite, efficient, and just a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Airsoft Megastore to anyone. mskanwischer, USA
Airsoft Megastore is The Best Airsoft Website Out There (I Think) and i Will Always Be Loyal to AMS and Order Almost All of my Gear From Them. The Customer Service is Also Amazing, Jun my Customer Service Representative Has Helped Me With Anything i Needed Help With, Especially My Order Problem (Had 2 Magazines Missing from Order) and Jun Helped Me With The Problem, and Now The Mags Have Been Shipped To Me. Thank You So Much AMS and Jun. Ethan1214, Saskatchewan, Canada
I love that Airsoft Megastore has videos of most any information you will need to learn and care for your products. I purchased an AEG for my son and in short order, unfortunately, it began grinding after brief use. I emailed for warranty repair with symptoms and with 24 hours (22 to be exact) I received an email explaining possible causes with a video like for tuning the gun. I had the gun working again within 15 minutes, avoiding returning the gun and the mess associated with returns\repairs. Excellence on Sean's part to help out a first time customer of theirs. Highly recommend. bucfanjeff, USA
Everything worked great, shipping was super fast. I am very pleased and won't hesitate to order through airsoft megastore again. rob_riley, USA
