What's the best M4/M16 for me?

Hi, I am just wondering what's the best brand below 350$?

And what's the difference between a m4 and a m16? just the look or the m16 shoot longer?

Uh oh, not this thread again..

Check the FAQ man. This thread has been made so many times I can't put a number to it.

Regarding difference, the M16 has a longer barrel and generally speaking, a fixed stock rather than an adjustable one.

AR15: the original .223/5.56mm design, of which the M16 and M4 are based on. Early AR15s were select-fire capable (full and semi-auto), but these days AR15s are almost always semi-auto only.

M16: the military's designation of the AR15, which they adopted in 1963-64. Followed by the M16A1, M16A2, M16A3, and M16A4. These are all select-fire cable.

M4: a carbine (short-barreled) version of the AR15/M16. First adopted in the 1990s. Also select-fire capable.

GBB or AEG ?

None out here, no. You'll have to go all over the GTA to play. I have made peace with it.

There was Whitby Airsoft, but they got shut down due to zoning and haven't found a secure relocation spot as far as I know.

Generally speaking, a longer barrel won't affect the range of an airsoft gun as much as several other factors. The difference in barrel length between and M4 and M16 is not a big contributor to range in airsoft.

So yeah, the practical differences between an M4 and M16 in airsoft is only cosmetic.

M16's are rather large and as Firestorm said the diffrence is mostly cosmetic, However since most M16 stocks are rather large you can carry a larger battery than inside most M4 stock tubes (more space in a m16 stock). Not such a big deal now but with lipo battery's

However personally I like the feel of the m16 over the m4 for me as I have rather long arms, But again as a first gun I would recommend The VFC M4's
