SOLD. JG M16VN for sale

    Have a JG M16VN for sale, all metal apart from the handguard and stock. Fires at 280-290fps using .20s at the chrono during the Summer great range and decent rate of fire on 7.4V liPo. Only got use at Vietnam themed games has been fielded 3-4 times at most.

    Would be excellent starter for someone looking to get into Namsoft. Comes with 4 75rd G&G Midcaps (They do have my initials Tippexed on the bottom which is shown). Excellent quality midcaps.

    Reason for sale is I'm looking to upgrade to the TM version for my Vietnam loadout.

    Can post but it's massive and could be costly, based in Dundalk can meet within reason. Buyer pays postage/PayPal fees.

    €110 will include a long 8.4V battery too.

    Open to trades not sure what I'm after make an offer

    Getting a bit off topic but I'm sure my advice will save you some money.

    The TM would be a significant downgrade in my view. I have owned every possible brand of M16 and the TM is the worst of the lot in my opinion. Yes it has proper trademarks. But all the important bits are plastic and it generally just feels like a creaky toy. It's also crazy money for a very average performing gun.

    My advice would be to get one of the new Cymas and get the trademarks laser engraved onto it. Then you will have a workhorse of a gun, that's metal where it should be and internally is excellent. Also even with the cost of the laser engraving will come in significantly less than a TM.

    Another option would be to get your JG, strip off the black paint, use Halfords grey bumper paint to get that "Colt Grey", swap the flash hider for a birdcage and get it laser engraved with the colt trades. Your total cost would likely be under 50 or 60 euro. JG are fine guns and even better upgrade platforms.

    I have a friend who will do up the SVG files for a small fee and you can take it to a laser engraver of your choice, or I can recommend Custom Laser NI. You can pick out a unique serial no too.

    I've attached a few photos of the laser engraved trademarks on my cyma. In my opinion they look as good or even better than my G&P.

    Was thinking the same myself AJ after reading a few reviews online. Wasn't too sure about the ABS body myself when I seen it. CYMA is a solid option the selling point for me was the trades.

    Will definitely give the engraving a look!

    Cheers bro
