The HK416C Next Generation includes international symbols for Safe, Semi-Automatic, and Fully automatic, a retractable stock , a AR type pistol grip, a fore grip and, attached to the rifle is a new single-piece hand guard with a free floating Metal RIS system, used for mounting accessories. This particular rifle has two battery sources, one from the front where you lift a tiny portion of the handguard to find a extended cable for an external PEQ box. The other source is in the proprietary magazine itself.
This is the Recoil shock system which is an innovative system from Tokyo Marui is adapted from the oldest M4 SOPMOD and now in this full metal HK416C, including blowback system and also a lock-bolt function which stops the gun from firing on the last round of BB fired just like the real gun and similar to the more expensive Systema PTW. Pop in a new fully loaded magazine, press on the bolt-release button on the side of the receiver and you are ready to fire again!
Employing the new SHOOT & RECOIL Engine Version 2, this new 416C is a blast to shoot with both sound and visual gratification to boot. The gun comes with a proprietary Tokyo Marui 30 round, battery powered magazine if you don't use the cable at front. If you're wondering which battery will fit in the magazine, we suggest using the Sanyo 8.4v 600mah Battery (NiCd) - Small Mini Type, G&P 8.4v 1100mah Battery (Ni-MH) - Small Type or the GP 8.4v 1100mah Battery (NiMH) - Small Mini Type. The gun is of full aluminum (i.e. Full metal) construction with ABS stocks and grips for more realistic feel!
Shooting this gun is a LOT of fun. The blow back feature coupled together with the empty-magazine bolt-lock and release function, and the configurable 30 round magazine makes this a very realistic gun perfect even for law enforcement training purposes! But if you are a gamer and prefer a high capacity magazine, there is also the optional Tokyo Marui 430 round hi-cap magazine which can satisfy your needs (the bolt-lock feature is disabled when the hi-cap magazine is used). When the last BB is fired, the bolt lock release button pops outward for visual confirmation that the magazine is empty, and of course the trigger gives no response as well. If you hold the bolt lock release button down or remove the magazine, you can keep on firing (although no BBs will be fired).
