G&G Combat Machine CM16 Raider-L Airsoft Gun
The G&G Combat Machine CM16 Raider line is G&G’s best selling line of beginner AEG on the market, and it has been that way for good reasons. The CM16 Raider comes in 2 different variations: long barrel for outdoor and short barrel for indoor. As far as color goes, the CM16 also comes in black or tan. Here we will take a look at the CM16 Raider Long.
From the front of the gun comes with a standard bird cage orange flash hider; there are aftermarket silencers that can be fitted over this style orange flash hider. The front sight is a standard M16 triangle sight that is adjustable for elevation. On the bottom of the triangle sight is a sling mount for 2 point slings. The outer barrel is made of aluminum and is 14.5 inches. Covering the outer barrel is a 7” quad rail system that provides plenty of rail spaces for accessories such as grip, flashlight, laser, or PEQ box. The rail system is made of durable polymer which also keeps the weight down.
The body is made of the same polymer material as the rail system. The rear sight is adjustable for windage and elevation, it is also removable if another sighting system such as red dot sight or scope is preferred. The dust cover on the CM16 series can be easily pried open to access the hop up unit, otherwise the dust cover will stay close as the default position to prevent any unwanted debris from entering the hop up or the gearbox. All CM16 Raider AEG have a sling adapter on the right side, and a comfortable 6 position retractable crane stock. The battery housing is located inside the crane stock, and the space inside the stock can accommodate a 9.6V NiMH Nunchuk battery.
The gearbox is a full metal V2 gearbox that is compatible with an extensive variety of aftermarket replacement or upgrade parts. Based on the gearbox specs, it is recommended to use this rifle with a 9.6v NiMH battery or a 7.4v Lipo battery. 11.1v Lipo batteries are more powerful and can be used to power the rifle to achieve a higher rate of fire and crispier trigger response but at the cost of a higher rate of wear and tear on the rifle.
All G&G Combat Machine CM16 Raider comes with the same hop up and barrel set up: aluminum inner barrel, plastic hop up and cold resistant green bucking. Just like the gear box, all major components listed above can be replaced or upgraded with aftermarket parts to achieve better accuracy.The combo version of the G&G Combat Machine CM16 Raider L comes with the AEG itself, smart charger, 9.6V NiMH Nunchuk battery, and 450 rounds hi-cap magazine (Select optional combo package with battery and charger). This airsoft gun shoots around 380-400fps. The G&G Combat Machine Raider series of AEG is a great beginner to intermediate choice for anyone who’s looking to start playing airsoft, and the G&G Combat Machine CM16 Raider L is great for any outdoor field games because it shoots within the recommended FPS for outdoor games plus it is light weight yet durable external materials, long barrel, and reliable internals.

I did a lot of research before I bought anything for this hobby. Many youtubers suggested this gun as a great beginners rifle simply because it's reliable, and easy to put upgrades on. I already had my first airsoft battle at Fun On The Run in Fort Worth, Tx.
Amazing gun! I was surprised on how sturdy it felt, despite not being metal! It is a very sturdy gun, very accurate, and very reliable! This gun worked wonders for me on the field (although the orange tip was damaged a little bit). I couldn't believe how truly accurate this gun is, I mean on semi it would go pretty much exactly where I aimed it! very good gun, I recommend it a lot!
Had my son shoot me in the back about 10 yards, will never do that again. Only problem is constantly twisting the spring on bottom of clip to get pellets to feed so a lot of misfires. Really got to pay attention to see if actually firing anything. Makes the noise but is there really a discharge?
Rifle works great when the mag is full otherwise you have to wind it up. Shoots very well and accurate.
My son's friends all had the non L version of this gun and this gun dwarfs those in the following ways: (1) Faster BB speed (2) More accurate (3) Higher rate of fire. Previous to this gun, my son had a $40 pistol. This one is a billion times better.
The battery has had no issue. My son played with his friends for over 2.5 hours and no sign of slow down. Great product would buy again.
comes with battery and charger
450 round mag
lots of rail space
very reliable (been using this for 6 months now and still going)
shoots really well
last really long
some midcaps does not feed well but a little electrical tape solves the issue
Hop up is a little bit hard to turn but no biggie
Best beginner and budget friendly gun around
Got this gun because my friends recommended it and i am so happy i followed their advise. I got the combo package which comes with a charger and battery. I highly recommend the G&G raider for first time players.
