The ICS M4 RIS Short Stock Composite Electric 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 shorter barrel is great for wrapping around tight corners and provides easy mobility and control. The fore grip that is included with the gun is also a great tool for CQB environments because it gives you much more control. It also has the detachable peep sight which gives you the option to mount optics even with the sight still on the gun. The handguard is a 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 multi-piece barrel and gearbox. You'll never run dry with this AEG because ICS offers a high capacity magazine that holds 300 rounds! This is an excellent airsoft gun for the avid player or tactical trainer.
The M4 carbine is a family of firearms that was derived from earlier carbine versions of the M16 rifle, which was in turn derived from the original AR-15 rifle that Eugene Stoner designed and ArmaLite made. The M4 is a shorter and lighter variant of the M16A2 assault rifle. It is a gas-operated, magazine-fed, selective fire, shoulder-fired weapon with a telescoping stock and 14.5 in (370 mm) barrel to ease close quarters combat. Like the rest of the M16 family, it fires the .223 caliber, or 5.56mm NATO round.
The M4 carbine is heavily used by the U.S military. It will eventually replace the M16 rifle for most combat units in the United States Army. The winner of the Individual Carbine competition was to supplement the M4 carbine in U.S. Army service; all other services will continue using the M4 carbine and M16 rifles. The Army cancelled the Individual Carbine competition without selecting a replacement rifle and instead plans to equip soldiers with the improved M4A1.
