Gas Blow-back M4 Carbine from WA (AirSoft)

Western Arms is making a gas blow-back airsoft version of the M4. Western Arms has been making high-end gas powered airsoft guns for over a decade. Until the M4, I don't think they've ever really don't a rifle before, unless you count the funky hi-cap 1911s with stocks and long barrels.

Although it's rather expensive compared to an electric airsoft assault rifle, they are a lot more fun to shoot. The gas blow-back guns actually have a little recoil, where the electric guns just kinda vibrate and make sewing machine noises.

A lot cheaper than a real M-16 or converted AR (about $10,000), and with some precautions, you can shoot airsoft guns indoors.

I'm sure it will only be a matter of time before there are longer barrels available. Edit: Nevermind, I was going backwards through the Arnie's Airsoft News, and didn't know there was a standard M4 available when I first posted.
