WE M16A3 w/Nato steel outer barrel

Hi guys, yesterday I received this brand new WE M16A3 with the optionnal NATO engraved front steel outer barrel. I won't go into much details since it is basicaly a M4A1 with a different stock and a longer front end.

The gun comes actualy dripped in silicone oil (I guess), there is so much of it on it that it looks like there was an explosion of a silicone oil bottle near it. Even the one propane magazine that come with it is soaked in oil. I don't know why, since it's a painted aluminium receiver, it does not need protection againt's oxygene.

The gun is very heavy, 3.7gk, most of it being in the front, where the steel is use. It come with one propane magazine, even if it's a Co2 version. The painted on the lower receiver is not very good and is uneven (once you remove the oil of it), exactly like my last WE M4A1 V2. The paint on the upper receiver is better, but has little scratchs here and there. The paint on the stock is not even at all and there are some weird feeling on the surface. The front assembly is perfect, with the front outer barrel being threaded and is in one piece. The gun also comes with the WE wrench, wich is a cool addition.

The firing and functions are the same as my old WE M4A1. The magazine doesn't leak. Chrono is 554fps with 0.2g.

Appearance = 3.5/5
Toughness = 5/5
Function = 5/5















YouTube - MVI 0709

In the video, the magazine is emtpy and I had some difficulties placing the mag on empty firing mode.

Cool...like the barrel detail.

This is one the the latests AWSS WETTI's right? If you could, could you pop out the bolt and take a nice pic of the nozzle?

I'd like to see if it has the slim nozzle they were putting in the M4's or the bigger ones they were putting in the SCARs.

Did you get a chance to chrony it?

Chronoed at 554fps with 0.2, pics coming. It's the Co2 high speed noozle with stabilizer.

Interesting. Shoots the same as the stock M4 WETTI with the slim nozzle, I wonder if it has a longer inner barrel (the M4 one is 360mm...of 363mmm can't remember off hand).

I had asked about the which nozzle it came with because I've seen the "SCAR" one show up recently labeled as the "CO2 Upgrade Nozzle" and packaged for the M4 (which has the long black tube and stabilizer chuck of plastic). The same nozzle is packaged for the SCAR as well...with a shorter rod.

Looks like maybe they're standardizing on this type of nozzle as the standard...which is good since that's the type that RA Tech has decided to make an adjustable FPS version for.

Thanks a bunch for the pic!

Hows the accuracy versus the m4 a 100 foot and 150 foot test may be in order : ) if you have the space .

Cool.

If you take the hopup unit apart (which is dead easy to do...just don't loose the little metal ball bearing)...is your hopup rubber green or black?
