||H&K 416 review
IT ARRIVED TODAY (w00t)
What can I say this gun is solid as a rock no wobbles rattles etc
Bullys special prize as this is the full stock model it comes with a longer barrel so it is more like a 416 riffle not a carbine ,had not realized this till it came .
I own and have owned allot of airsoft guns and have to say I am blown away by this one .
The one thing that was not good was a small amount of rust on the little bar that goes through the ejection flap.
Had to take it down to snip the spring a bit more (was already done by my supplier) as my coke can chrono told me it was up near 400 .
Very impressed with the internals has a nice heavy metal spring guide and nothing looked cheap or badly built inside ,however it did look like some one went mad with the mar mite in there (weird grease ).
First impressions on the inside are that the bits apart from the wire are better or at least as good as a TM .
It has what look like brass bushes never seen any that colour before but they look good and as these are designed to fire at 420-450 somehow I don't think these will fail at 350 too quickly.
It was shimmed well but needed the hop area cleaning out with cotton buds to get rid of some grease however barrel was not that bad.
My main experience of similar guns are the TMM16A2 ,TM M4 S system and the JLS scar I can confirm that this is better than any of those hands down.
Firstly the M16 looked like a plastic toy gun and felt like a plastic toy gun, the 416 s stock is much more solid than the TM one and feels thicker .
The M4 feels nice but has the disadvantage of trying to get decent battery's to fit in the hand guard and it doesn't have the heft or presence of this gun also weak power as standard.
Well the I am the forth owner of the JLS and it has been skirmished 3 times not full days I think that says it all, not a gun for everybody.
So far all mags I have tried fit including star lo and mid caps .
I am skirmishing it tomorrow but I have had a bit of an airsoft binge the last three weeks and have three new aegs to try out and two new pistols so it will not get a full day there is no way I can resist the new 249 or G3SG1.
Something I have read said about this gun by people who are bothered by this sort of thing is "the trades are not right it's crap I will by the plastic JG one"
If you do that you are missing out my friend ,this is one hell of a gun and what are we talking 5 minutes with a fine brush and some black paint then it will not say AGM on the side anyway.
Oh and it sounds very crisp and snappy no whine I did try it out with a silencer and !oh moma! she sings.
In summery I would say that overall feel and presence of this gun is on par with classic army internals are better than TM,cyma and JLS (not hard).
Will update after some skirmish time though according to my coke can I am above 290 and below 340 I would make it around 300 judging it on how other chronoed guns perform in the same test so my range might be a bit out.
Ok it chronoed at 288 and felt like an old stock TM to use because of that, very hop dependent and i did not have the range i am used to .
This was my fault for incorrectly interpreting the coke can chrono and cutting too much spring, I have since put an M100 in it.
Other than that it performed very well I added a vertical grip and a small ris bi pod that must of added to the weight but I found it was very useful on this gun .
It was surprisingly heavy after a couple of hours even though i like that in an AEG I can see it would hurt some smaller types.
I bought this as a gun that could do everything and it will be getting the full 24 hour mil sim test next so watch this space.
Ok mil - simed it now .With new m100 systema spring it looked like it was going to fail the chrono coming in at 352-354 but after a few minutes full auto and adjusting the hop I got it to 350.Range and accuracy were much improved and the gun performed very well had some good long range kills and after around 8 hours wet game play the finish is holding up well .
I will update when it has had more use but it's WW2 for me for the next 2-3 months so it will not get used much.
