The latest addition to the ever popular G&G Combat Machine AEG line is the all new CM16 SR series. This is a brand new model of affordable line of intermediate level AEG that G&G came up with this year, with a few new internal and external improvements, this is definitely an upgrade to the original battle tested G&G Combat Machine. The CM16 SR series comes in different lengths to accommodate different airsoft game scenarios.
Here is an overview of the G&G CM16 SRL with a 9" Keymod Rail System and 10" outer barrel.
Externally, this is one of the nicest looking Combat Machine G&G has ever come up with yet. From the front, the G&G CM16 SRL is equipped with an aggressive looking plastic orange flash suppressor that can accept an aftermarket mock silencer that will give the AEG a different look. Rail sections can be mounted onto the full metal keymod rail system at the 45, 90 and 180 degree angle. The front and rear iron sights are adjustable, these sights can also be flipped down to be used as back up or remove from the gun to provide more space for another type of sighting system such as red dot or long range scope.
The most defining feature of the G&G CM16 SRL is the upper and lower receivers; these are made of a new type of reinforced fiberglass polymer, which feels tougher than the material of the original Combat Machine polymer receiver. The upper receiver is cut out to be flush with the rail system, giving the gun a slick look. The receivers are also milled out nicely giving the AEG a more modern, and futuristic look compare to any standard M4 AEGs. The enhanced selector switch is larger than standard selector switch. The magazine release button and the charging handle are ambidextrous for left and right handed users. The motor grip has finger groves and textures that provide more comfort than ordinary motor grips. A sling mount is located on the base of the buffer tube.
The G&G CM16 SRL comes with the new GOS-V3 6 position crane stock which is also a battery compartment; this stock can house a large variety of nunchuck (butterfly) batteries. To access the battery compartment, simply press the button on top of the stock, and twist the butt pad. Toward the back of the stock is a QD sling mount slot, and a small back up battery compartment for flashlight or red dot sight is located right under this QD sling mount slot. The butt pad is thick and rubberized which feels very comfortable when shouldering the AEG.
Internally, the G&G CM16 SRL AEGs utilize the Version 2 gearbox with a few new parts. The V2 gearbox is compatible with a large variety of aftermarket upgrade and repair parts. All G&G CM16 SRL AEGs also comes with a micro switch and a programmable mosfet combo, which enhances the trigger response immensely compare to regular Combat Machines. The Mosfet unit is located inside the buffer tube; this mosfet can be programmed to change from full auto into 3-round burst fire mode.
Changing fire mode can be done on the go by simply switching the fire mode to semi, then hold the trigger for 10 seconds, and the full auto function will change to 3-round burst. To switch it back to full auto, simply repeat the steps above or unplug the battery for a few seconds to reset back to normal.
It is recommended to power this AEG using a 9.6V NiMH battery. It is also possible to use 11.1V Lipo battery for this AEG to achieve a higher rate of fire, faster trigger response and quicker burst on 3-round burst fire mode, although this will result in an increase of wear and tear.
The hop up, inner barrel assembly in the G&G CM16 SRL consists of a 260mm aluminum inner barrel, G&G standard plastic hop up unit, and G&G green bucking. All these parts can be replaced with compatible aftermarket upgrade parts.
The G&G CM16 SRL shoots at an average of 330-350FPS with .20g BBs. With this FPS and barrel length the G&G CM16 SRL is an ideal AEG for CQB or Close Quarters scenarios that requires room clearing and fast movement but also descent enough for medium range battles. This G&G CM16 SRL comes with the airsoft gun itself and a 300 rounds magazine, also available is the G&G CM16 SRL Combo package which includes the airsoft gun, 300rd magazine, 9.6v battery and G&G smart charger.
The G&G Combat Machine has been battle tested in the airsoft community and is known for being one of the most reliable entry level AEG on the market, with all the features that the original Combat Machine has combine with the new features and competitive price, the G&G CM16 SRL is surely going to be one of the nicest intermediate level AEG on the market.
