The ICS M16A3 Airsoft Gun is a quality airsoft gun at a great price. It has a composite body that saves weight and reduces fatigue on the user. The long 20 inch barrel is great for delivering those long distance shots. The carry handle bears the adjustable rear sight and it is fully removable. Under the handle, lies the flat top receiver with the Picatinny rail attachment. The front sight is also adjustable and follows the typical AR15 design. The handguard is a free-float Picatinny rail system that allows the attachment of tactical accessories.
This gun features ICS' famous split version 2 gearbox which allows the user to split the upper and lower receiver just like the real thing. It allows for extremely fast upgrades and repairs and lets you get back into the fight. Also, the forward assist functions to reduce gearbox pressure by releasing the anti-reversal latch so the spring can decompress, a feature not commonly found on airsoft guns. Most of the gun is made from high quality polymer with a metal barrel and gearbox. You'll never run dry with this AEG because ICS offers a high capacity magazine that holds 400 rounds! This is an excellent airsoft gun for the avid player or tactical trainer.
The M16 rifle, officially designated Rifle, Caliber 5.56 mm, M16, is the United States military select-fire adaptation of the AR-15 rifle. The rifle was adapted for semi-automatic and full-automatic fire. Colt purchased the rights to the AR-15 from ArmaLite, and currently uses that designation only for semi-automatic versions of the rifle. The M16 fires the 5.56?45mm NATO cartridge. The rifle entered United States Army service and was deployed for jungle warfare operations in South Vietnam in 1963, becoming the U.S. military's standard service rifle of the Vietnam War by 1969, replacing the M14 rifle in that role.In 1983 with the adoption of the M16A2, the M16 rifle was modified for three round bursts, with some later variants having all modes of fire and has been the primary service rifle of the U.S. armed forces.
