Our take: The NEW G&G Full Metal GC16 Series Airsoft Full Metal Gearbox M4 Raider w/ an integrated rail system and full-length M4 barrel is a high-quality, high-performance, Li-PO ready Airsoft AEG rifle. This premium G&G AEG features a rugged full metal body and railed hand guard, making it one of the most durable G&G AEGs on the market! Unlike the G&G Combat Machine M4 Raider, this full metal AEG features a premium ball bearing 8mm gearbox, Li-PO ready wiring, and a high torque motor! G&G Armament is renowned for manufacturing reliable and high performing AEGs for unbeatable prices, and their NEW GC16 series is one of their best values yet!
NEW RUGGED EXTERNAL CONSTRUCTION
The external build quality of the NEW G&G GC16 Series M4 Raider is on par with even the most high end airsoft AEGs, with a full metal upper and lower receiver, a full metal railed hand guard, and a full metal outer barrel and buffer tube. The full metal body features brightly colored fire settings, as well as a unique stamped serial number. The full metal RIS hand guard is perfectly flush with the receiver top rail, and tightly fastened to the gun, to prevent excessive movement. The GC16 M4 Raider features plenty of rail space for mounting a wide variety of accessories, including flashlights, laser units, vertical grips, optics, and even grenade launchers! Also unique to the G&G GC16 M4 Raider, is the full metal rear flip-up sight which is adjustable for both windage and elevation. This AEG comes with a front sling swivel mount, as well as a rear buffer tube single point sling mount.
The NEW G&G GC16 Series M4 Raider AEG comes standard with a 6-point retractable crane stock which accepts most nunchuck-style batteries, and provides more comfortable shouldering and cheek support than standard M4 stocks. The GC16 M4 Raider is extremely versatile, easily transitioning between close quarters and long range environments with its retractable crane stock. Another great feature of the GC16 Raider is the comfortable textured motor grip, which provides a more tactical look to this AEG. The G&G GC16 Series M4 Raider AEG features one of the most reliable and durable exteriors manufactured by G&G, adding to this AEG's incredible value!
DOMINATING INTERNAL DESIGN
Like most G&G AEGs, the GC16 M4 Raider's muzzle velocity easily overpowers Tokyo Marui AEGs and features a top-of-the-line reinforced high performance full metal 8mm ball bearing gearbox! This gearbox rivals most high end airsoft AEGs' gearboxes, which can cost over twice as much! The G&G GC16 M4 Raider has been engineered to be compatible with a wide variety of aftermarket upgrade parts, and thus it is a modular platform on which customizations and upgrades can be done with ease. The motor, gears, bushings, and wiring have been upgraded to make this AEG 100% Li-PO ready out of the box! G&G has upgraded their standard gearbox design to include a high torque motor, as well as 8mm ball bearing bushings providing an incredibly high rate of fire as well as FPS with a Li-PO battery! G&G has reinforced the build of the M4 Combat Machine gearbox to be on par with their more-expensive "Top Tech" line of $350+ AEGs, making this G&G M4-RIS Raider an amazing value.
Add a precision crafted barrel to your G&G airsoft M4 that enhances accuracy and minimizes barrel wobble, and you have an amazingly SOLID fully automatic railed M4 AEG w/ a crane stock at an unbeatable price. The barrel length is that of a full-size M4 Carbine, aiding in both accuracy and power delivery, as making the weapon a full-size Combat Machine rifle as opposed to a compact M4.
