I’ve had something come up and have to go out of town for a couple days, so I won’t be able to answer any questions until Friday. Plerase help out while I’m out of the loop.
The UTG M4 is an automatic electric gun (AEG), so the 8.4-volt battery has to be charged. That takes 16 hours the first time. After that, it takes about 4 hours.
The battery stores in the butt, balancing the rifle well. With the oversized handguard and the rifle’s general stoutness, this gun feels big!
I started with 0.20-gram BBs, even though I thought they were too light for the powerplant. Sure enough, at 10 yards they gave groups in the 2.5″ range. That’s not what you want in a battle rifle – not even a CQB gun. But I knew 0.25-gram BBs would make things better, and they did. I used TSD Competition Grade AEB BBs that I had laying around. As you can see, they worked quite well.
