Introducing the latest version of the Evolution Airsoft E-416 AEG, in compact 10" barreled form for up close and personal work. The E-416 CQB sports the usual Evolution Airsoft upgraded internals, now with their latest ETU, the ETS III pre-installed. The E-416 CQB 10"  is equipped with a high torque motor, 6.01mm tight bore inner barrel with the latest rotary adjustable HOP-up unit, and a quick change spring system, granting you flexibility without having to mess with the finely tuned internals. The ETS III adds some major functionality to the platform, enabling a plethora of advanced functions including burst mode, binary trigger and ramping automatic fire, all of which can be programmed using the fire controls on the weapon itself!

Full description

Description

The E-416 CQB is the latest addition to the Evolution Airsoft SAG (Smart Airsoft Gun) series. The SAG rifles were conceived as Evolution's attempt to outdo themselves with a new and improved electronic trigger unit, known as the ETS III. The ETS III is fully programmable and can be set for binary fire in semi-auto, ramping semi-auto, i.e. a short press for semi with a long press for full auto, bursts of varying durations and a sniper delay, a function which limits the semi-auto response to allow you to use your SAG as a bolt action sniper rifle. The ETS III also provides low battery protection, saving your battery from damage in case you forget to remove it after a game day, and active braking to protect the circuitry within the internals and prevent the motor from over spinning.

The externals of the E-416 CQB are absolutely breathtaking, as with the previously released variants. Starting from the tip, we have a black birdcage style flash hider, which fits in well with the look of the E-416 without sending you in any particular direction as far as customising the rifle goes. The flash hider attaches to the 10-inch alloy outer barrel via a male 14mm CCW threading, meaning if you want the psychological warfare advantage for CQB skirmishes you can add a tracer, or if you want a more sneaky look a suppressor can also be mounted. 

The handguard of the E-416 CQB is a free-floated quad 20mm Picatinny type handguard, measuring 9 inches in overall length, providing plenty of room for any accessory you had in mind, including PEQ laser units, with space to spare! 20mm Picatinny rails are available at the 3, 6, 9 and 12 o'clock positions, meaning no matter what you want to mount you will find a spot for it on the E-416 CQB. Installed on the upper Picatinny rail you will find a set of multi-aperture dioptre sights offering fast target acquisition at close range and pinpoint accuracy for long-range shots. To select between apertures, simply turn the knurled section of the rear sight drum. These sights are similar to those found on the SMG-5 and are known to be amongst the most effective iron sight designs out there. If you prefer to use an optical sight, or you would rather run flip-up iron sights, these sights can be removed and replaced with any 20mm Picatinny compatible alternative.

The receiver of the E-416 CQB follows the familiar M4/AR15 format, with a reprofiled magazine well matching the real rifle this AEG is based on. The fire selector lever can be found on the left side of the receiver, just above the pistol grip, and has a 90-degree throw between fire modes. Each fire mode is denoted with a colour coded pictogram, with the white crossed out projectile symbol indicating the safe mode, and the dangerous modes indicated with a red pictogram. This fire selector is set up to provide SAFE-SEMI-AUTO out of the box but can be programmed for various configurations using the ETS III.

The pistol grip is of a 416 ergonomic style, featuring texturing on the sides and rear of the grip and a finger groove on the front, allowing you to maintain a firm hold of the rifle in all weather conditions. The grip also features toolless access to the motor, should you need to adjust it. The trigger guard is a standard M4/AR15 flat type, with the option to add any AEG spec M4/AR15 trigger guard should you feel the need.

At the rear of the upper receiver, we can find the charging handle which has an extended latch installed. When pulled to the rear, the mock bolt carrier will retract and spring open the steel dust cover on the left side, revealing the rotary adjuster for the adjustable HOP-up unit. This device allows you to vary the amount of backspin applied to your BBs, and tune the E-416 for maximum range with your chosen ammo weight. With your adjustment complete, you can slap (or press, up to you!) the bolt release catch on the left side of the receiver, in the centre, and the mock bolt will fly forward with a satisfying "clack".

At the rear of the rifle, there is a steel buffer plate featuring sling points on either side and an AR15 style buffer tube which is compatible with the vast majority of aftermarket AR15 AEG stocks. The buffer tube provides 6 positions of adjustment for the stock, allowing you to set the E-416 up to suit your body type and loadout. The stock included on the rifle is of the 416 style crane stock, which is also where you will find the battery compartment. To access the battery compartment, simply turn the rubber butt plate counterclockwise by 90 degrees when looking down the barrel of the gun from the butt. For the E-416 we recommend a 7.4V 1300mAh LiPo battery for easy installation, though larger batteries may also fit.

The stock also features a low profile adjustment lever, reducing the probability of snagging the weapon on your gear, and includes two sling points moulded into the top of the stock, and a slot through the centre, offering you multiple sling options. The polymer used in the pistol grip and stock is of excellent quality, with a smooth but textured surface indicative of fibre reinforcement.

Here's where we get to the juicy stuff. As much of a work of art as the E-416 is on the outside, the real story starts inside! The gearbox of the E-416 features a reinforced piston with steel teeth and a reinforced piston head, an upgraded selector plate, a metal spring guide with bearings, CNC machined cylinder with a reinforced cylinder head, 8mm ball bearing bushings, steel gears, and low-resistance wiring, all driven by a powerful high torque motor.

This superb internal feature set is further enhanced with the pre-installed ETS III electronic trigger unit, Evolution Airsoft's latest innovation in their quest to provide truly "smart" AEGs. The ETS III helps boost the rate of fire and trigger response, protects the battery and circuitry within the AEG, and monitors the gearbox to ensure full cycles are being completed and that the motor does not over spin. Also built into the ETS III is the ability to program your fire controls; offering burst mode, binary trigger, ramping semi-auto and a sniper delay, giving this ETU some serious flexibility and customisation options.  To assist your quest to deliver BBs unto the enemy, the E-416 also sports a 6.01mm tight bore inner barrel combined with a rotary adjustable HOP-up unit, guaranteeing accuracy and the ability to reach out.

For those looking for an advanced AEG with full metal construction and a modern, special forces approved design, look no further than this, the latest ETS III equipped AEG from Evolution Airsoft. The combination of rock-solid internals with a highly advanced ETU is rarely seen for this price point, and even less so coupled with a metal receiver. For an SF impressionist or anyone who likes the E-416 visual style, you cannot go wrong with this rifle!

Joule Charts

Special Instructions

These table can be used as a reference to see if the BB weight you are using will be over acceptable Joulage limits at some Airsoft Sites in the UK. To check if the weight can be used chrono your weapon using the BB you intend to use, and then compare it to the chart.

FPS, Power and Joule Limits can vary from site to site, so please get in touch with where you're going to play with in advance to avoid disappointment.

Suggested limits are based on Joulage Limit rules used Halo Mill: Proving Grounds, with a 350fps limit for Automatic Replicas, 400fps for Semi-Automatic Replicas, and 500fps for Bolt Action Replicas.

Tap the tabs below to open the relevant chart for your replica.

Suggested limits are based on Joulage Limit rules used Halo Mill: Proving Grounds, and is the equivalent of 350fps, using 0.20g BB resulting in an upper limit of 1.14j.
