Full description

Description

Introducing the GC16 Raider-S from G&G Armament, complete with the reliable, high performance and no-frills Combat Machine internals in a new full metal package. The GC16 line fills a gap in G&Gs line-up, providing a lightweight and affordable all-metal AR15 platform complete with a quad rail Picatinny handguard out of the box!

Starting at the muzzle, we can find an alloy modernized birdcage flash hider with a cut-out, used in the real world for shooting through barbed wire! This attaches to the 14mm male CCW threads at the tip of the two-piece alloy outer barrel, which is of the CQBR length: 10.5 inches. The triangle foresight is adjustable for elevation and has an integrated bayonet mount for your rubber knives and a sling loop on the underside. Following the sight, we can find a 7 inch Picatinny rail handguard, complete with a barrel stabilizing cap, reducing the potential for barrel wobble to develop and ensuring your rail stays consistently spaced from the barrel for enhanced accuracy. The rail itself is considerably lightened compared to others, with lightening holes and grooves throughout, and lightened Picatinny rails at the 3, 6, 9, and 12 o'clock positions. This keeps the front end of the Raider-S nice and light, enabling rapid snap shooting of multiple targets. The rail has numbered slots, meaning you can attach and remove accessories with an assurance that you can reattach them in the same place, and maintain your zero. Next, we come to the metal receiver, which features a Picatinny rail across the top for mounting optical sights such as red dot sights and rifle scopes, and comes out of the box with a nice rear flip-up sight. This sight aligns with the front triangle sight perfectly and provides a medium-sized aperture with full adjustment for elevation and windage. At the rear of the upper receiver, we can find the metal charging handle, which serves no function but adds a bit of realism, with a low profile snag-free design ensuring this part doesn't catch on your gear. The right side of the receiver features a steel dust cover, concealing the gear adjustable HOP unit beneath. This dust cover can be opened using your fingers and is a simple design stamped from sheet steel, reducing the chances of this part failing and exposing your HOP chamber to dirt and dust. Behind the dust cover, we have a mock shell deflector and mock forward assist which has a steel plunger that can be pressed, though it doesn't serve a function in Airsoft rifles. The lower receiver is an A2 fenced type, protecting the magazine release from accidental bumps with a machined in fence around the release button, which can be found on the right side. The left side of the lower receiver includes a dummy bolt catch, which does nothing, but is a separate part and can be pressed after a reload for some extra cool points. Also found on the left side are the engraved G&G trademarks, reading "GC COMBAT MACHINE 6mm Pellet AEG Semi/Auto System". The fire selector can be found on the left side of the receiver, beneath the shooter's thumb, and has white and red pictogram style markings, indicating safe, semi-auto, and full-auto modes of fire. The selector travel is crisp, with a little resistance at the start of travel to ensure the selector is not moved inadvertently but provides a smooth and easy throw to the next mode, to which the selector locks in with a satisfying 'click'. The pistol grip is of a Tango Down ergonomic style, with aggressive stippling on either side to ensure you have a good grip over the rifle in poor weather conditions. The trigger guard is of a standard AR15 modular design, meaning you can swap it out for aftermarket enlarged or enhanced trigger guards should you choose to. As we reach the rear of the receiver we find an AR15 6 position buffer tube, to which mounts a rear sling plate for use with 1-point hook type slings. Over the buffer tube slides an AR15 crane battery stock, constructed from textured high-density polymer with a rubber butt plate. This provides a comfortable cheek weld and ample grip, whilst being able to store a sizeable battery inside! 9.6 or 8.4v 2000mAh is what G&G recommends! The battery compartment can be accessed similarly to other crane-stocked AR15s, by squeezing the two retention tabs at the butt end of the stock together and popping off the rubber butt plate.

Internally this rifle features a high-grade brass 6.05mm inner barrel, gear adjustable HOP unit and a metal gearbox, with full steel gears and 8mm bearings to ensure smooth cycling. The gearbox sounds smooth and well tuned when firing, as we should expect from a high end manufacturer such as G&G.

If you were tempted by a Combat Machine, but have a strong desire for the cold feel of metal in your hands during a skirmish then you have found your perfect AEG!
