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.
AMS x SRC
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.

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.
