Double Eagle M83 A1 electric Semi and fully Automatic BB gun.
Is a replica of the famous M4 carbine machine gun
The gun is basically the same as the M83 B2 we sell but with a Adjustable tactical stock.
It is a 6mm calibre electric fully auto BBgun.
The rifle can shoot at around 250 fps and a range of around 40mt and it fires around 5 shots a sec
The magazine holds around 40 pellets and its a very accurate shooter with a good rate of fire.
The stock is strong and its a well built BBgun
In automatic mode it can fire at a whopping 350 rounds per min
It comes with loads of extras in the box and there are lots of different ways you can set this gun up.
This gun is highly recommended as one of the best BBguns for its price out.
this bbgun now comes with the a Free red-dot sight,(this is a free gift and not warranted)

Being constructed completely out of ABS plastic and shooting at around 250fps the gun is nothing special but is extremely realistic and is great for target practice in the back garden. It comes with some nice attachments but they are very cheap and just about half of them broke within two weeks of getting the gun. As the saying goes you get what you pay for as it is a cheap gun being at the price of £44.99. I would highly recommend this gun for beginners and for target practice.

For the price, it's alright I suppose, but I was expecting it to be a bit better...
I also have a DE M85, which has exactly the same internals as the M83, so some of the review comments here apply to both guns.
The look of the gun is great, although the colouring of the gun that I received is more like the picture of the M83 B2 on this site, with a black body and orange handle, rather than the orange body and black handle in the pictures above - I think it looks great and think it looks better than the pictures above. It feels good when you are holding it too. However, it does feel cheap. The Mags only hold around 40 bb's, so low capacity for an AEG by all accounts (I knew this before ordering, but when you empty a mag in a few seconds in full auto, it can get a little frustrating).
The tactical stock on this M83 A1 is a great feature and is the reason I chose this over the M83 B2 version with the fixed stock (even though that version would have been £5 cheaper). The stock itself feels fairly sturdy, and the adjustability is a great feature.
The scope is ok and has two brightness levels and would add some 'fun' to using the gun, if it were not for a fundamental design flaw: The handle and fixed front sight on the M83 stop you from being able to use it (Look at the pictures above, you'll see what I mean)!! It is also made from cheap plastic, so not sure how long it would last.
The mock suppressor is also made from cheap plastic and how it attaches to the gun is ok - certainly better than the design of the suppressor on the M85. However, care still needs to be taken, as it looks like it could break off if knocked against a tree or wall, or if dropped. It also comes with an all-orange barrel extension that you can attach instead of the suppressor - I prefer the look of the mock suppressor, so have fitted that.
The sling is good, although the clips on the sling to attach it to the gun are a bit thin and weak and don't inspire confidence.
The safety goggles that are supplied are rubbish - the lenses are slightly "rippled", so distort your view quite badly - I would recommend getting different safety goggles (Always wear safety goggles when playing with bb/airsoft guns!!).
The biggest problem I have had is with the mags and how they seem to struggle to feed bb's into the gun. I ordered a second mag too, and it is exactly the same with both... The spring in the mags just doesn't seem to be strong enough to consistently feed bb's heavier than .12g into the gun (This could be a weak spring, or "stiction" from poor build and materials, or a combination of both)... With .20g bb's you can forget about filling the mag up and expect it to fire them. I have (with both mags) only been able to load around 10-15 .20g bb's in order to get it to fire consistently. Any more than that loaded into the mag and it just seems to struggle to push them up. I have been using Fireball .20g Biodegradable bb's, so this can't be blamed on cheap imperfect bb's. With Fireball .12g bb's it works fine with a full mag. I have had exactly the same issue with the M85 and the mags on that gun, so I assume that the mag internals are much the same between the two guns, even though the mag externals are different.
The power/range and accuracy of this rifle do leave a bit to be desired and if I am honest left me a little underwhelmed. Compared to both my gas pistol (a SRC GG 104B Beretta 92 replica Gas pistol), and my Shotgun (a DE M56C pump action shotgun) - Both of which are more powerful, admittedly - The M83 is nowhere near as powerful nor as accurate.
All-in-all, I am not sure you could get a "better" AEG for this price, but perhaps saving up for a more expensive, and hopefully better gun may be a better idea.

Okay, now for those who claim this gun is amazing; try using it for more than a day. As an Airsoft repair and Upgrade tech I can tell you I see far too many of these come through my door. It's dreadful. Inaccurate, short-ranged and slow firing.
If you want a starting gun, this isn't the one for you. Go with the Bulldog A500, A cyma p022 or (If you can afford it) a Double Eagle M901c. The M901c is the best of these options, the only one you could even try and bring to a skirmish.
Mags are a unique. No other M4 mag's fit, which is bad as these mags are unreliable and brake easily.
It's weaker than a fly.
I can spit further than this shoots.
Accuracy? I'm sorry, but if you can even get it to fire properly then maybe I'll look at that.
And no, I NEVER repair these things. They've got full plastic internals and are not upgradable or repairable.
In short, if you want a half decent indroductory gun, you don't go with this gun. Pay more and get something that's actually worth your while. I use a ICS RIS AK47, costing around £400 with upgrades. The M901 and the A500 can both give me a run for my money when used correctly. So please, go spend more money. This site has some great higher level guns.

There are many faults in this gun
Firstly the magazine cannot hold a lot of bbs
Secondly the fire rate is too high for the magazine
Then the bbs do not go very far
There are some good points
They give a free torch which is very useful for other things
There is also a free scope
Overall this bb gun is a high-end garden plinker.

Well, my freind got this for his birthday with the astonishing price of what it is. I used it on his birthday and seemed very good, we were both disappointed with its small mag but highly impressed with its rate of fire and accuracy. Sadly after 2 days the gun just stopped working. Just stopped. We tried fiddling with the battery connections, as that was what we believed the problem was. Nothing, luckily the awesome people at BBGunsUK said send a refund form in! So it's heading back. Hearing from all the other reviews of this weapon, this seems like a one off event. I would recommend this gun, just be aware if its mag size and it will not stand up against anything of a £90-ish standard. For this price, it's a steal. So yes, very good.

this gun is good quality for the price you pay. a gun around £70 probrably wouldn't beat this gun! it has around 50m range, 45BB magazine (not too good D:), great quality attatchments (though the silencer broke quickly) and after using this in a skirmish I would say it is definatly worth it! got over 40 hits to around 15 hits

where to start it's price is great, no faults whatsoever, shot it for the first time and it was rapid and easy to use, i highly recommend this gun!
Posted by Isaac on 4th Nov 2012

is only 45 bb's and some of the extra attachments
break easily but i would give it 8/10

Posted by Zak on 5th May 2012
I got this gun yesterday expecting to dominate the battlefield and frankly i was dissapointed, i got it from ANOTHER SITE (sorry) and well it broke allready, it keeps jamming and the battery wont work properly. I was really dissapointed with this gun, when it did work it had a good feel to it but poor accuracy and its fps sucked along with its range. I do however reccomend the famas its a perfect gun; a must have!
