The M15A4 CQB Compact offers the advantages of a highly compact CQB weapon about the same length as a collapsing stock MP5 but with the familiar and comfortable controls of an M4. These guns come with a rail mounted flip up adjustable rear sight, the same ultra-reliable and upgraded 7mm bearing gearbox as the current M15 CQB, 300rd hicap magazine, and unique serial numbers. The M15A4 CQB Compact SEAL differs from the CQB Compact in that it has a free float barrel gas block and rail mounted detachable front sight.
These are the latest models from Classic Army. The internals include a reinforced mechbox, 7mm bearing bushings, upgraded spring, newly designed reinforced piston and reinforced gears (all new stainless steel) and a metal hopup unit! The metal bodies have a nice matte finish that looks very realistic. The delta ring and spring are very similar to the real rifle!
Airsoft Classic Army M15A4 CQB
Did you ever need a gun for close quarter battles (CQB)? Ever want something other then the frequently used MP5A4? Have you been saving up for a great CQB gun but can’t find one? Well there is a gun out there for you….it is the Classic Army M15A4 CQB
So how about a little history lesson on the ol’ M15A4 CQB? The Classic Army M15A4 CQB
is a detailed full metal replica of the NSWC (Naval Special Warfare Center) Mk18Mod0 Subcompact Assault Rifle. It is classified by the US military as the Mk18Mod0. The CQB-R was originally part of the SPR program, but was later intended as a drop-on upper receiver kit for the M4 SOPMOD kit. It started development in 2000 but quickly gained a following as its own weapon. TACOM did purchase a few thousand CQB-R uppers, and the M4 DEVGRU is either based on or closely resembles the CQB-R. The gun basically consists of some major components: the fore end, which consists of a modified/shortened 10.3” barrel; a KAC QD silencer compatible flash hider; KAC M4 RAS system; the receiver, which is simply an M4A1 flattop receiver with a gas port opened up to accommodate the shorter barrel; the detachable rear sight manufactured by LMT (Lewis Machine & Tools); and the retractable Crane type butt stock. It also features angled cheek welds and
The airsoft version is really close to the actual Mk18Mod0. It sports full metal construction, die cast receivers, realistic barrel and gas tube, laser engraved markings, and stock upgraded gearboxes….what more could you ask for?! How about a 7mm bearing gearbox with reinforced gears and cylinder components; optimized piston head, mated to an improved; a metal hop up, an amazing new stock; a shortened M4 CQBR upper, metal, detachable, and fully adjustable rear sight; a vertical fore grip; a M4 RAS rail system; RAS panels; and a 300 round hi-cap magazine! Basically if you are into CQB or know anything about CQB this should sound like heaven on earth for you. Classic Army really banged out on all cylinders this time for us airsoft fans.
A buddy of ours at U.S.A.S.O.C. has one of these, and we were able to do a detail review of this AEG because of his allowing us to check out the gun.
The first impression we got when we looked at the gun was that it was superbly detailed from end to end. Again, Classic Army really hit it big time with this gun as far as details. It has a sleek, black metal body with Armalite logos and laser engravings on the laser. It is smaller then most AEGs, which wasn’t a surprise to us since it was dubbed a “CQB” gun. To roughly compare the length, it is about the length of a MP5A4. One of the main things we loved about the gun was how sturdy it felt, not only as you hold it, but when you shook it also (hint: when you run, your body and gun bounce and shake….). It is much stronger then most Tokyo Marui models. It has a RIS, and a crane stock which most new comers to the gun like but for many that was soon to change. I’ll explain what I meant by that latter. Also, along with the sturdiness of the gun, the internals are great! This meaning they are well placed and re-enforced, which equals NO gear replacements when upgrading if you don’t want to. Overall, it was one of the best guns I had a chance to look at.
Now for the Pros about the gun. There are many pros with the M15A4 CQB. One of them is its looks. It has a wonderful black finish and has a fake gas tube in the fore grip/RIS which really adds a lot of details to gun. Its sturdiness is another pro about it. I know it was talked about earlier in the article, but for some of the things that happen during a battle to your gun….sturdiness helps a whole lot! A lot of the strength and weight might be attributed to the fact that most of the gun is made of metal, with the exception of the pistol grip, the vertical fore grip, the crane stock, and the two rail covers. Also, it’s not too heavy, an advantage of the CQB. It is lighter then the Classic Army M15A4
Carbine because of where the battery is placed; the crane stock has a much better feel to it then the Carbine also. Another pro is that all the wiring with all of Classic Army’s guns, specially with the CQB, is done so all you have to do is hook up a fresh battery to it and then “Git-R-Done.” Due to the fact that the internals are so reenforced, the internal parts hardly ever break which means many dollars in savings for the owner. For some this is a pro and for others it is not, but the barrel is shorter then other Classic Army guns which makes it better because of the new Hop-Up system (yellow instead of the normal black). While in production of the gun, Classic Army redid the trigger contact plate. It was latter told by Classic Army that this was made to be a smoother action then the Carbine. And finally, you don’t really hear the gears and spring crank when firing the gun. With the Carbine, there was about third of a second, or less, before the gun actually fired, and you could really hear the gears and spring make that cracking noise. So those are the pros for the gun…pretty great so far.
Now for the cons about the Classic Army M15A4 CQB
. Again these are the ones we found, so there may be more cons for you with the gun, or there may be less. First off, Classic Army glued on a black-flash suppressor and painted it orange which is not too normal on most AEGs. We’ve heard that a lot of people have just either taped or painted over the orange tip because of how difficult it was to try and take it off. The dust cover, also, needs to be opened by hand and held with a magnet. This wasn’t a big challenge at all, but since there were very little things wrong with the gun, we decided to write it anyways. The crane stock can be hard to use which leads into another con. Some people blame the manual on this. The manual says that by pressing down the level on the crane stock, it will allow you to slide the stock out to change batteries which many people have had trouble with. We’ve found, as others, that instead of pressing the level down, you need to pull it away from the stock. This should allow for easily changed batteries. Another thing about the crane stock is that sometimes it’s hard to adjust it so that it will slide all the way in when the battery is in place. This issue may be due to the size of your battery. Also, the RIS doesn’t line up exactly with the Classic Army receiver. It looks to be between ½ - 2mm higher then the specs say it should be. Another thing about the RIS is that sometimes the covers don’t fully locked (click) into place meaning that at least one cover is loose at times. Those are the cons for the gun. We were being real picky when we went over the gun and tried to find anything and everything. If some of these “cons” are not bad things for you, then great, but we wanted to give a broad variety on what we found that could be called “wrong” with the gun.
So the conclusions on Classic Army M15A4 CQB
are: it is designed to be used easily, is versatile and reliable, and has some of the best looks and details out there for an airsoft gun. We would recommend this gun to everyone who likes not only CQB action, but also a better, shorter version the M15A4 Carbine by Classic Army. It can be used for outdoor battles, but as the name says, it is better indoors. We’ll leave you with the official specs for the gun:
