The M4 Carbine is Tippmann's first airsoft gun. In the past they've distributed other companies products but this is Tippmann gun through and through.
The M4 uses a proven air valve system similar to that of their paintball guns. This means no gear box to deal with and NO BATTERIES. That's right, this full auto M4 does not need batteries. It's powered by a 12 gram CO2 cartridge housed in the magazine area. But the M4 also can be powered remotely with a constant air source. Because the M4 uses an air powered valve you can feel the recoil of the valve as it resets between shots giving you a more realistic experience.
The 12 gram cartridge will shoot the full magazine capacity of 80 rounds. It's compatible with many standard airsoft magazines that come in various capacities.
Like a real M4, this Tippmann M4 has a pin release near the back and it then hinges open for service.
You can adjust the velocity from 270 to 400fps and the rate of fire can be set between 8 and 20 rounds per second. You can also adjust your hop up and choose between semi or full automatic modes.
This air soft rifle has a very realistic M4 / AR look. The foregrip has picatinny rails on 8 sides so you can mount all sorts of accessories including many true M4 / AR upgrades. The stock is adjustable and flip to psights come standard. To finish it off you get front and rear sling mounts and a top picatinny full length rail.
The receiver is all aluminum giving you a rugged feeling with a nice weight of 5.5lbs (2.5kg).
