The Elite Force M4-CQB Competition Series airsoft gun is geared for the budget minded or entry level player looking to get the most bang for their buck. In the box you will find the gun, two high capacity magazines, a stubby vertical grip, a 8.4v nun-chuck battery and charger. The only thing missing to get you out on the field and playing is some Elite Force BB’s and eye protection.
The two 300 round high capacity mags are made of plastic so you will want to be a bit more careful when dropping or doing high speed mag changes as a good fall on concrete could break one.
The body is made of a high grade polymer which is light weight and durable.
The gun is wired to the back where it has a 6 position crane stock and small Tamiya connector. You will also find that the fuse has been removed.
A look at the flip up rear iron sight. The sight is adjustable and made of metal.
The charging handle is functional and reveals the hop up adjustment in the faux ejection port.
A look at the front RIS, which is full metal.
A look at the upper removed from the lower receiver as well as the inner barrel and hop up unit. The hop up unit is one piece and is a “dial” configuration. The inner barrel is made of very light weight aluminum.
I tested the FPS using .20gram bb’s and all the shots were right around 36ofps +/- 7fps.
Overall I think the Elite Force M4-CQB is a great starter gun or for those on a budget. You basically get everything you need to start playing in one convenient sub $200 package. As I write this the Elite Force M4-CQB is on special for $159 at most authorized retailers. If you are new looking to get into the sport or a veteran looking for a base for a custom build, the M4-CQB is worth consideration.
