MGC M16, A very plasticy feeling gun to be honest ( but then it is a plastic gun but you know what i mean) very light, barrel can wobble at times but it fires real well and i would rather have a plastic model that fires this well than a metal one that never fires or takes a huge amount of work to fire this reliably. The stoppages were simple down to the det pin getting dirty and rounds starting to stick to it, so occasional eject problems.
This is a fun model to fire.

Very nice. If only Marushin ones fired the same Embarassed

One thing I did see on the vid was the ejection port cover looked like it flaps a bit, I don't think it caused any eject issues but it's something to keep and eye on.

Thank you very much for this impressing video!

I have to agree, the ABS MGC M16 series is very light, and the shiny plastic looks and feels not as good as the later HW series. Anyway the HW material is more prone to breaking, so I prefer to fire the ABS models (I have a XM177E2 and a M16A1). They fire quite good out of the box.

I hope I will find the time to take my model out again soon.

I noticed that Francky Fukudome has posted a reply. Is that Francky from the forum?

Wow - that is running great! Thanks for posting up the vid!!!

It was my experience that the ABS models also fired better than the HW models!
Are you running MGC rounds or Tanio Koba?

MGC rounds Ljerr2, never had a problem with them. HW is good for some parts of a model but i find that good old ABS is less prone to break, its just not as brittle as HW. Which is why i wish MGC had stuck to ABS barrels on there 1911 models as those HW barrels are terrible.
