G&G GR16 Review (M4)
I will start this review of with a bit of info about the real gun, the M4 fires
5.56mm rounds, most commonly NATO rounds, it is used by the American
army and replaced (or near enough replaced) the M16A2, it is probably the
most famous gun in the modern world (if you exclude the AK47, but that was
made is 1947, so its not so modern).

The G&G GR16 is a very nice gun and fires 6mm BBs with its pneumatic
blowback system gearbox, which uses air left in the chamber after the round is
fired, rather than using electricity to power the blowback, which leaves a very
satisfying noise and a small kick being transferred from the gun to your
shoulder adding to the realism.

Apart from the fact that the gun is powered by electricity and fires 6mm BBs it
is very close in realism to the real steel version, the GR16 can be bought in full
metal, but mine has an ABS upper and lower receiver, but it still weighs a
considerable amount... Unloaded it weighs roughly 2.5Kg, which if I am not
mistaken is only a kilo under the real thing...

Now for the performance, the power is very nice, around 300-330 FPS I would
guess, whilst plinking in the garden I had a ricochet from about 7-10m away
from me and that stung a little (remember it loses a heck of a lot of power
when its hits anything solid) then I decided to go closer (about a meter away
from the target) just to see how much it the ricochet hurt then (Bad idea) it hit
my thigh and I had a 6-7mm swelling on my thigh, which disappeared after
about 2 minutes, but it stung for about an hour.

Now accuracy, the gun has a very pleasing amount of precision, on semi-auto the shots hit within 2 inches
of where you aim on a breezy day and from about 10 meters away, then you
switch to full auto it fires so smoothly you get the same performance...

Overall I think this gun is a well worth the money, the one I got cost 180 with
1000 High Quality 0.20g BBs a 1400Mah 8.4v Battery, a smart charger, G&G
safety glasses (that in fact are very good...) and barrels of fun...

Cost: 150 for gun and mag 180 for gun mag and everything listed above...
Performance: 4.5/5 (a tightbore barrel would bump it up to 5)

It performs well in skirmishes (it really does, got 7 peeps in one spray, that'll teach em not to presume all enemyies are dead and have a nice chat in a big huddle :ph34r: ) and apart from my hop-up breaking on its first skirmish (kinda my fault) it worked flawlessly
