Our take: The A&K Full Metal LR-16 Carbine AEG is part of A&K’s line of completely redesigned, performance oriented, metal body AEGs. These A&K AEGs are built to the same performance standards as other top-tier airsoft guns costing nearly twice as much. These A&K AEGs not only feature top-of-the-line performance in a durable metal body, but also include everything you will need to start using the rifle! The A&K LR-16 Carbine includes a 9.6v mini NiMh battery, a standard wall charger, a 300rd high capacity metal magazine, two rail covers, and a vertical fore grip! The LR-16 Carbine AEG packs a huge punch in a maneuverable and compact carbine size, shooting consistently over 400 FPS! The tactical LR-16 Carbine AEG is built to perform and endure in the most strenuous airsoft conditions!
The LR-16 Carbine features a full M16 style stock, which provides comfortable cheek support and has ample room for a variety of battery sizes. This LR-16 Carbine AEG can also easily hold its own in an outdoor environment. With a precision inner barrel and fully adjustable full metal hop-up, it can easily hit targets beyond 150 feet! The LR-16 Carbine AEG features a full metal upper and lower receiver, a full metal outer barrel, full metal front and rear iron sights, and full metal sturdy rail system. The rail system is very well built and provides plenty of room for adding additional accessories such as vertical grips, optics, flashlights and lasers. The only plastic components on the rifle are the M16 style stock and the motor grip. The A&K LR-16 Carbine's construction is extremely durable, and has a realistic weight and feel.
The A&K Full Metal Body LR-16 Carbine has a redesigned and reinforced metal gearbox with a factory installed M120 spring, making it one of the hardest hitting stock, metal body AEGs on the market! The full metal gearbox features metal bushings, a metal ball bearing spring guide, a full steel gear set, a high torque motor, and a perfectly sealed cylinder.

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.
