Our take: The NEW Full Metal Gearbox JG WORKS M16A1 Vietnam AEG Rifle is an authentic replica of the U.S. service rifle used during the Vietnam War, and includes a slew of features unique to the real steel M16A1! Unlike other so-called M16A1 AEGs on the market, the NEW JG M16A1 features an authentic upper receiver with an integrated carry handle, as well as a tear drop shaped forward assist. The JG Vietnam Era M16A1 AEG also includes a mock three-prong flash hider, adding an extra dose of authenticity. It also comes with a full stock and is intentionally missing the brass deflector that is equipped on the more modern M4s, legitimately making this a near-to-perfect replica of the M16A1!
Designed for medium to long range airsoft combat, the JG M16 boasts a long, full metal outer barrel paired with a high precision inner barrel that runs 509 millimeters long, making this AEG extremely accurate. This polymer body M16 AEG, which is powered by a full metal Version 2 gearbox, shoots consistently at 380 feet per second (w/ 0.20g BBs) and is legal to use at most outdoor fields. This rifle also comes with an integrated carrying handle that is permanently affixed to the upper receiver as in the real M16A1. Ensuring that your rounds reach your targets, the one piece hop-up can be easily adjusted. Racking back the fully functional charging handle locks the mock bolt to the rear, providing easy access to the hop-up chamber. Pressing the bolt release drives the mock bolt back home. The JG M16 AEG Rifle is equipped with front and rear iron sights, complete with two sight stations for long and short range shooting.
This authentic M16A1 style rifle also comes with front and rear metal sling mounts, allowing you to attach an authentic Vietnam Era two point sling. A metal mock gas tube serves as a nice finishing touch and can be clearly seen through the triangular hand guard, adding to the overall realism of the rifle. With a huge assortment of M16 AEGs on the market of varying lengths and features, the JG M16A1 Vietnam Rifle stays true to the rifle’s origins and is incredibly affordable for an authentic polymer M16A1 replica AEG with a full metal gearbox!

Battery Charger Recommendation: 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.
