JG M16 VN (JG1601)
Although the M4 is often considered the most recognisable gun in airsoft, its ancestor is no spring chicken - finding fame in the Vietnam war, this iconic rifle is instantly recognisable, and its legacy is still alive and well today.
Manufactured by Jing Gong, this replica of the Vietnam era M16 is exceptional - its sportsline body is constructed out of plastic to help keep the weight down, however it does not compromise on performance. You have the iconic triangular handguard, integrated (non-removable) carry handle, and composite solid stock. It is compatible with standard 5.56 STANAG magazines suitable for M4's, and comes with a VN style high capacity mag.
Internally you have a Version 2 gearbox, complete with metal gears, polycarbonate piston, and metal gearbox shell. It is built for reliability, and is a superb base for durability. The hop up chamber is the traditional cog-based design, offering a great range of adjustment. The inner barrel is 509mm long, and 6.08mm wide, giving you reasonable consistency at range.
One of the most practical elements of the M16 design for airsoft is the generous battery storage - wired to the rear, the solid stock can fit almost any battery. The included 8.4v NiMh mini fits comfortably, and is easy to put in thanks to the fast access design.
