When we first heard that KWA had decided to produce a full size M16 rifle we were certain that like their KM4 series it would be an exceptionally nice rifle. What we received though is probably the best M16 we have seen to date in both looks and feel. Oh yeah, and did we mention it fires 430 fps out of the box?

Produced under the KM16BR designation, KWA’s full size M16 rifle has the power and range to be used as a designated marksmen’s rifle right out of the box without any modification needed. The KM16BR uses a reinforced metal Version 2 gearbox which has been factory upgraded to professional competition level. This is basically the same gearbox as used in the previously released KM4 variants however this gearbox is wired to the rear stock to be used with a large type battery and features a stiffer M130 equivalent spring. Other upgrades included are, 8mm & 9mm metal ball bearing bushings, poly carbonate piston, aluminum piston head, metal spring guide w/ bearing, high torque motor and 16 gauge wiring.

With this much hardware in the receiver it is not surprising that this rifle can unleash some unnerving firepower and have the precision to put it where you want it. Its high compression cylinder coupled with the powerful M130 spring produces 430 fps w/ .2g at the muzzle which enables it to engage targets out to 200 feet away. Even with this powerful spring the high torque motor makes trigger delay basically non existent so you can perform perfect double taps all day long. And when used with our 9.6v 4200mah battery we were seeing the rate of fire pass 16 rounds per second! We do suggest with this rifles high muzzle velocity that you use .25g or even .28g BBs to maintain a tight shot group. At this high of a velocity even .2g BBs can become unstable at longer ranges.

The KM16BR has a strong yet lightweight aluminum receiver which even has a functioning dust cover and a mock bolt that moves when you pull back on the charging handle. Unlike a lot of other M16 rifle types found on the market today, this rifle is completely wobble free from muzzle to butt plate and feels as solid as a tank. This rifle looks and feels very realistic and actually with a battery installed the rifle only weighs .25 lbs less than the real steel M16. The handguards, pistol grip and butt stock feature a realistic textured finish and if you look in through the top of the handgards you will even find a mock gas tube. Both the front and rear iron sights are adjustable and if you want to mount a red dot sight or scope to your rifle the carry handle can be removed to reveal a weaver mounting deck along the top of the rifles receiver. The battery is installed in the rifles full stock which has plenty of room for a large type battery pack and will even accept the massive 9.6v 4200mah battery!

Bottom line, this rifle is going to impress you and probably cause serious concern for anyone who is unfortunate enough to be on the opposing team! If you are in the market for a full size M16 look no further than the KM16BR.

    5 out of 5- Awesome Gun

    First off before i start i want to say i got this earlier than everyone else ( i got it from a different site, sorry shorty but it was available earlier with them) and i do have the gun and have had it for three weeks. Now onto the review!!!

    BUILD QUALITY/ FINISH: This is a full metal AEG, which means that the main body of it is metal but the stock is heavy duty plastic i dropped the gun on the stock and it was solid. The hand grip is a composite which is the same material they use for a real AR15 ( I know because I've shot one. the hand grip is heavy duty plastic which is the same kind on the butt stock. And the inner barrel is all metal. There are no wobbles on this gun, it is solid. The charging handle is metal and has a good spring in it and snaps back into place with a satisfying sound. The forward assist is plastic and you can push it but it has no real function. The finish on this gun is great but there are no trademarks except for the very large KWA logo, NOTE: The magazine included with the gun has a black finish and looks weird to me and i can see my fingerprints on it.)

    INTERNALS: The internals in this gun are phenomenal it features stock high torque gears and high torque motor. This gun is 11.1v lipo battery ready boosting its rpm up to 28 bbs per second but i do not recommend it, it will strip your piston within 6000 rounds and put stress on the gears. It comes stock shooting at about 425fps with .20 gram bbs. I recommend .25g bbs and up because with my .23g bbs they are going all over the place even with a 650mm tight bore barrel. The hop up is revealed by pulling back on the charging handle which opens the dustcover, it is very responsive and able to lug a .28g bb a good 170 feet without lobbing the bb.

    PERFORMANCE: As said earlier it shoots around 425fps with a .20g bb yet it is not recommended. With a 8.4v 2400mah battery it shoots at about 950rpm. This gun's accuracy before my barrel upgrade was below my expectations, it was very inconsistent at even 50 feet but i can blame some of that on light bbs but i recommend a tight bore barrel (I have a 650mm because i have a silencer but if you don't want to have to get a silencer a 509mm will do) but now with a tight bore and .28g bb i was able to hit a pop can consistently from 120 feet.

    OTHER: This is a very long gun (about 40 inches long) and is heavy. I do not recommend this gun if you are not very big because it will be hard to carry in the field if you are. The battery compartment can hold a 9.6v large battery with ease due to its very large battery compartment. NOTE: The 300rd hi cap magazine that came with the gun broke after 600 rds thankfully i ordered a couple extra magazines, I'm not saying all magazines from KWA are like that but mine was so probably just a rare factory defect.

    PROs
    Awesome power
    Range
    Full Metal
    Heavy (can be a con)
    Long (can be a con as well)
    great finish
    Almost endless accessories available
    11.1v Lithium polymer battery ready

    CONs
    Accuracy
    Weight
    Length
    Expensive (but totally worth it)


    Conclusion: KWA has quickly risen to the top of the food chain of AEG's and can outperform ICS, CA, G&G, and even Systema PTW's! so it is a great buy. But remember if you are small or not very strong don't get it go for the KM4 or G36. But if you can get past the size GO FOR IT!!!!

    I RATE IT 9.5/10

    5 out of 5- Very Impressed!

    I have to say, this gun really is as close to a full auto sniper rifle as you're going to get.

    Externals

    Very nice, good heft to it, has a removable carry handle, has a large metal content too!

    Internals

    This is where the gun shines. It basically is the KWA m4 gearbox with better upgrades to handle a m130 spring. It's got a nice motor, but one thing is I would not want to use lipo on a 330 dollar gun.

    Feet Per Second

    This gun is 430 FPS, let me repeat that's 430 FPS. this gun is as powerful, if not more, than the new version 3 m324. just think that m324 with 1000 rpm and a high cap magazine, lots of metal, and runs on batteries.

    Range

    4 words, accuracy and 190 feet, nuff said.

    Overall

    Very nice quality sniper, assault rifle, a little overpriced, but hey its a full auto sniper.

    Pros

    Sniper worthy FPS
    Sniper worthy Range
    Sniper worthy Accuracy
    SMG worth RPM
    Lots of metal.

    Cons

    A little, just a little, overpriced.
    DONT USE LIPO, unless you upgrade this gearbox to titanium!

    Accuracy 10/10
    FPS Mine is about 430 10/10
    Full Metal 8/10 (Sometimes it gets heavy)
    Feel 10/10

    CONS:

    5 out of 5- The Beast

    This kwa is amazing. It has one of the most powerful fps ratings of an age. 1000 rmp will do some damage it you are hit with a 2 second burst of bb's fling right at you. it has to be really accurate cause it's 39 inches long. You don't see many guns longer than that unless it's a sniper. It's over 400 fps so you can use the 10 volt battery and do some damage. People will want to use your gun. If it's too expensive then save up. It's better than the $400 classic army that is only 280 fps and is $80 more. It's full metal so it wont break.

    5 out of 5- sweet

    If you know anything about the hard core airsoft, you will know the name of PTW. PTW is the best you can get, and is the most reliable. They are literally a real M4 but shooting plastic BB's, that's how realistic they feel. They are made of steel, and the mags are real M4 mags, but gutted out and have had airsoft internals put in instead. that's why a PTW cost around $1,500. When the KWA guns were released, this thing blew my mind. The trigger response is just superb, and the overall condition makes me wonder why it is so cheap. I am a veteran, and have seen the internals of guns. And I know that this thing is a good gun. It's as close to the PTW you will ever get, and not spend a fortune. I don't know how KWA does it. Great buy. The reason I give it a 4 is because the orange tip is a neon color, and the externals are not as nice as I would have liked, although they are very nice.

    5 out of 5- Best m16 out there

    Let me tell you this is probably the best m16 you are going to find anywhere. And for all of you who are thinking yeah but look at the price, that's why it's the best one out there. You can't find cheap guns that are gonna outperform this thing. Just take a look at the fps; 430 with .2s. Obviously you should not be using the .2s though, they are unstable. And 1000 rpm, you don't find that on some cheapo gun, you find it from the best. This is the closest thing you are going to get to a full auto sniper. Believe me, I have a sniper as well, even though I've been using this thing more lately. Also buy a nice red dot for this thing, it will really max out your accuracy. And of course buy a few extra mags; at 1000 rpm you're gonna burn through a lot of BBs.
