ICS M4 CXP Concept Airsoft AEG Rifle - AirSplat On Demand

The M4 CXP is a very futuristic looking rifle. It is a weapon built on the M4 platform, but has features reminiscent of the G36. The top rail has an integrated front and rear sight, and extends over the top of the receiver and hand guard. The stock is similar to a retractable stock on an MP5 and even has an integrated sling loop on the buffer tube. The short barrel makes this a great CQB and PDW weapon.

These ICS M4's are top of the line.

- Full Metal Front and Rear sights

ICS M4 CXP Airsoft Electric Gun Review - More Airsoft Gun Reviews

The CXP .08 is ICS's latest weapon based off of their split gearbox M4 platform. This gun is expected to be released to distributors in about a month. This review is based off of the last run of pre-production models and therefore should reflect the final product. The CXP .08 is ICS's first M4 model that is not a replica of a real firearm. While based on the M4 platform, the CXP .08 features a custom ICS designed front end and stock. The design of this gun has been patented by ICS which insures you will be getting a unique gun.

Basic Information:

This review is not based on the retail product, it is a pre-production model donated by ICS for this review. Therefore, no retail packaging was provided for the review. At this time, the retail packaging is expected to consist of: 1 Highcap mag, 1000 BB's, and a Catalog/Instructions CD. Price is expected to be close to the CQB models (approximately $300).

Product Description/first Impressions:
The CXP.08 is the second overall shortest model in the ICS M4 line up, second only to the M4 pistol. Externally it features an ICS designed collapsible stock and a short (pistol length) front end. The front end is high quality ABS and aluminum, and the receiver and stock are both full metal.


The pistol grip on this gun is your standard ICS M4 type grip with a twist. It uses a new method for adjusting the motor height. It has a large, thin, flat head adjustment screw and then second flat head screw that goes on top to function as a set screw of sorts. The stock is a newly designed stock most similar to a MP5/G3 style collapsible stock. It is a full metal stock with 6 positions and a plastic butt piece. Unlike the ICS folding stock, this gun still uses a standard ICS stock adapter. The sights on this gun are integrated into the upper rail system and are very similar to HK style M4/416 sights. The rear sight has adjustment knobs for elevation and windage. The fore grip itself is similar to a shortened SPR tube front end. It is a sturdy ABS construction with metal rails on all four sides.


The inner barrel on this gun is a standard ICS M4 Pistol barrel. The hopup on this gun is a standard ICS M4 hopup that is accessed by pulling back the charging handle. The adjustment dial rotates up and down to adjust the hopup. Gearbox wise, this is a standard ICS M4. That means it has a Turbo 3000 motor and is compatible with 99% of the after market internal parts around. The only exceptions being the gearbox casing and the anti-reversal latch. The wiring is nice and flexible, yet well shielded. The fuse has quick disconnect plugs to allow for quick fuse swaps.


This gun includes an ICS Mini-PEQ to hold your battery. However, you can fit a small LiPo or possibly a nunchuck battery in the foregrip. This gun uses standard M4 magazines and will accept most TM compatible magazines.

Performance Characteristics:

Function wise, this gun functions like a standard M4. With the pistol length barrel, this gun is most suited for CQB fields or as a sidearm/backup weapon. The gun was chrono'd at 290-305fps using .23g Airsoft Elite BB's. That translates to 310-326fps using .20 BB's. That is right on par for a 100 spring with that short of a barrel.


This gun features a full length upper rail with integrated sights, plus two side rails and a lower rail on the foregrip. Removal of the CXP fore grip will allow you to mount most front ends designed for the M4 series weapon. The collapsible stock gives it a very unique look which can be complemented by other unusual modifications.

Here is what it looks like with the Mini PEQ mounted and wired:


I threw my new JBU M16 Upgrade kit into the gun along with a Magnum motor and gave it another spin. Unfortunately the chrono started acting up and wasn't giving reliable readings. Half the time it wasn't giving any readings. So, I resorted to the PMC. Bottom can capable (which indicates 385fps+) at 21rps on a 9.6v 1100mah Mini battery (partial charge). All of the parts function perfectly with a stock ICS lower gearbox and the noise difference was negligible.

Skirmish Results:

I played my first game with the gun last weekend. The gun performed very well, exhibiting no odd behaviors with either the stock upper or the JBU 120 upper. Range unfortunately suffers with the short barrel, but the gun fed all my MAG mags perfectly and lasted all day on one large battery as expected. The operation of the gun seems a bit smoother than that of previous ICS M4's. It doesn't seem near as whiny even with the Magnum motor and JBU upper. Overall, I was quite pleased with the performance. With my existing Noveske Diplomat upper it made for a very distinctive gun. Even among a sea of M4's, the gun still manages to stand out.


This gun appears to be a very solid addition to the ICS M4 family. The collapsible stock makes for a very distinctive weapon and is very functional. It features 6 positions and locks very securely into each position with no wobble at all. The more you play with it, the more it grows on your. The gun features plenty of rails for mounting what ever accessories you may choose. The gun also features a sling mount integrated into the stock tube and is especially suited for a 1pt sling.

However, there are a couple of concerns with the gun. The fore grip is mostly ABS and while it feels completely solid, it is still a minor concern if it will hold up to the abuse of CQB games (meaning banging into walls and concrete). During normal usage however it is rock solid at will take a beating. Also the CXP .08 being reviewed does not feature a threaded barrel, simply a set screw on the CXP model flash hider. This prevents you from running a longer inner barrel through a mock silencer to give you the extra range needed for woodland games. However, ICS has informed me the production model may have a threaded barrel.

Another thing to note is the revisions made to the motor height adjustment are very nice. I also think there have been some tweaks made to the internals as this was by far the quietest ICS M4 I have used, even after installing the JBU M120 upgrade kit and Magnum motor.

All in all this is a very solid gun and one of the most unique M4 based guns available. Hopefully we will see ICS continue to make innovative additions to their M4 product lineup. However, this gun is not meant for everyone. If you are looking for a gun with enough range and accuracy for woodland style games, you might want to consider a standard M4 model.

End Notes:

Once again, this review is based of a pre-production model and therefore features might change on the final production model. Many thanks to ICS for providing the gun to do this review.

Review by XavierMace from Airsoft Retreat

In Semi-Auto mode, after each shot, the piston can stop at these two positions seen below. It will vary depending on the strength and length of the spring, as well as the power of the motor.

In Automatic Mode, after each string of shots, the pistol can stop at position 1 and 2, but may also land on position 3 or 4. Clearly, in positions 3 and 4, the spring will be much more compressed.

When using the forward assist button to release spring tension, follow the steps below:

1. Unload the airsoft gun by removing the magazine.

Switch the airsoft gun into semi-auto mode and fire 2-3 times to reset the piston into position 1 or 2 and to clear the barrel of any remaining BBs.

2. Staying in semi-auto mode, press the forward assist knob to release spring tension.

3. Pushing the forward assist knob in full auto mode may damage your gun! As seen in position 3 or 4, the spring will be extremely compressed. Releasing this spring tension may cause the entire sector gear to make a full rotation and slam into the rear of the piston, causing it to crack, chip, strip or fracture. Only press the forward assist knob in semi-auto modes.
