CM16 R8-L Carbine Replica – Black

CM16 R8-L carbine replica by G&G was constructed as part of Combat Machine project, which aimed to provide high quality replicas in a price range considered “low budget”. Combat Machine replicas have the highest, characteristic for G&G quality of craftsmanship, operation and materials used in construction. The main feature that allowed for the reduction of price was the use of high quality polymer as a material for the replica’s receiver instead of metal. What is also noteworthy, is the fact that the body was made from a polymer reinforced with glass fibre – the same can be said with regard to the handguard, stock or any other polymer element. Metal parts include: external barrel, stock pipe, swivels and most small parts.

The replica has a SF stock with a rubber buttpad. Inside the stock is stored a battery. The stock is adjustable, which allows for customization of the replica’s length to the user’s body type and preferences. The set includes a replica of M2 reflex sight – a very solid, made mostly from metal and equipped with a 22mm RIS rail mount replica. The sight displays a vivid red dot, which can be smoothly adjusted both horizontally and vertically. The sight has rubber, flip-up covers.

CM16 R8-L has a top 22mm mounting rail along the entire body and a set of three long rails on the handguard. This complete conversion allows for the attachment of a wide array of additional accessories such as: optical sights, grips, tactical flashlights and laser sights.

The replica comes with a polymer, high capacity (300 BBs) magazine.

The replica has a V2 gearbox based on 8mm bearings, which allows for achieving a muzzle velocity of about 415FPS straight out of the box. Thanks to that and the implementation of a 357mm long, internal barrel, the replica is an ideal choice for medium range combat. Inside is a tight pneumatic system, equipped with a top class Hop-Up chamber and packing.

The set does not include a battery or a charger.

The set includes:

–          A replica

–          A magazine

–          A M2 reflex sight replica

–          A user’s manual

–          1000 G&G 0.20 BBs

A valid defence is required to purchase any Airsoft Replica Firearm. If you don’t have a defence you must add Two Tone to your basket.

If you require a RIF to be painted two-tone to be VCRA compliant (No Valid Defence / Site Membership / UKARA etc) then please add TWO TONE to your order.

If you require a RIF to be painted two-tone to be VCRA compliant (No Valid Defence / Site Membership / UKARA etc) then please add TWO TONE to your order.

To purchase a realistically coloured Airsoft Replica Firearm (RIF) you must have a valid defence.  The most common of these is UKARA which stands for United Kingdom Airsoft Retailers Association and is essentially a database of registered players.  UKARA requires you must be a site member at any of the registered UK Airsoft sites.  This means you must play 3 games in MORE  than 56 Days. Once you become a member you are added to the database, please note paperwork and validation is required.  There are other types of defence, but UKARA is by far the most popular.  Please note this only applies to the gun, not the kit or accessories.

If you don’t yet have a defence, you can always add two-tone to your order. This simply means you have 51% painted in a bright colour such as green, blue or orange.  You can then purchase any RIF you wish.

If you have any questions regarding what is or isn’t a defence, or just looking for some general airsoft advice, then please drop us a call or contact us here
