ICS M4 RC47 RIS Airsoft Rifle AEG Sport Manual

Please visit our Airsoft Maintenance page for information and videos.

The ICS M4A1 Sport is a cost effective version of their regular M4s. The only difference is the ABS Plastic receiver. Otherwise, the internals are identical. Along with the reduced price, you get reduced weight as well. This would come in handy for extended operations. Comes with two Thermold style magazines as well. This model also includes a light weight carbine length quad rail and a SOPMOD style stock for battery storage. It also sports a short CQB barrel for enhanced maneuvering capabilities.

ICS Brand New Crane Stock
The ultimate Battery Stock for M4 Series

Features:
  • Electricity won't break when players adjuste lengths
  • The unique surface vein provides skidpoof and comfortable touch
  • Extremely convenient battery installation
  • Industrial standard plastic material and high strength structure
  • We usually utilize the biggest room in the M16 series AEGs for battery, such as the inside of fix stock or handguard. Players like to modify and upgrade their AEGs into characteristic personal weapon, which usually results in no extra room for battery.

    ICS design brand new crane stock kits to let players install the battery extremely convenient. ICS sampled L.M.T. LMT-L7 LA2B and improved it to have ICS crane stock which provides enough room for battery. Besides, it can be retracted without wiring.

    The new surface vein makes you feel very comfortable when you put your cheek on it.

    High strength from reinforced structure design

    ICS utilizes expensive industrial plastic material to design ICS crane stock in order to have heatproof, acid-proof, alkali-proof, and make it uneasy to distort.

    Unique electric track, the front connect point are silvering point. The features are low electric resistance, high electric current capability and electric erosion resistance

    Unique electric track, the front connect point are silvering point. The features are low electric resistance, high electric current capability and electric erosion resistance

    The silvering connection point on battery assembly can hold high electric current, lower the electric resistance and have electric erosion resistance. It connects with the silvering connection point in stock to provide electricity.

    The battery assembly is only for ICS crane stock. The specification is 9.6v 2000 mAh powerful environmental friendly Ni-Mh battery cells from Enrich Power, the first brand of Ni-Mh battery in RC industry in the U.S. There is a connector on the battery assembly for charging.

    It can be adjusted for six different lengths. No matter whether you retract or extend it, the electric current won’t break. You don’t need to open the stock and arrange wires anymore. This is a patent design you can’t find on the crane stocks from other brands.

    Battery disassembly:
    1. Loosen two screws on the butt plate, take off the butt plate
    2. Pull the battery assembly out

    Battery assembly:
    1. Take off the butt plate, insert the battery assembly to the end to make connection between battery assembly connection point and stock connection point.

    Ordering:
    My specific gun that I'm reviewing today was provided courtesy of Airsplat in order to review for the fine folks here at Airsoft Retreat. It is priced at $176.00, with free shipping for either the traditional LE retractable stock, or the full stock model. This puts is slightly above the cost of the ubiquitous  JG or Echo 1 M4s of a similar style, but the quality level both inside and out is night and day, with the ICS coming out on top by a mile, which I'll elaborate on further on in the review. It is currently available at Airsplat and will also be at pretty much any other major Airsoft retailer in the next few months.

    Basic Gun Information
    The ICS M4 Tactical is the full stocked version of the venerable M4, which allows for the use of large type batteries in the stock, and also delivers a somewhat unique look in a sea of 6 position LE stocks. I personally have a thing for full stock guns, which is why I went with this model.

    First impressions:
    The gun arrived 2 days after ordering it from Airsplat via UPS, in good condition, with no box damage visible. Upon opening the outer brown shipping box, I was greeted by the ICS box, which is brown in color and has red and black printing showcasing the model that may lie within. The box is universal as to hold the full stock, retractable stock, and full stock commando variants, and the metal and plastic versions; a smart financial decision on ICS' part which reduces overhead manufacturing costs.

    Box

    ICS included a nice little feature on the box; an integrated carry handle.

    The gun is set in a vacuum formed plastic base with compartments for all the bits and baubles showcased in the next section.

    Externals:
    As is par with the traditional “Sportline” model specifications, the ICS features a plastic receiver; the major reason for the large drop in price over the “Proline” model. The metal parts include the outer barrel and flash hider, front and rear sling mounts, front sight, delta ring, dust cover, all switch gear, top rail, body pins, and butt plate. Basically, with the exception of the receiver, if it should be metal on the real gun, it's metal on the ICS.

    Note: The ICS Sportline is NOT COMPATIBLE with normal aftermarket AEG metal bodies. It IS compatible with ICS metal bodies.

    Pulling back the cocking handle doesn't open the dust cover, but it can be opened easily. There is a mock bolt carrier underneath the cover, which is pulled back by the cocking handle, exposing the hop-up adjustment dial.


    Dust cover opened


    Mock bolt carrier pulled back

    The switchgear all operate smoothly and freely, and feel good during operation. The trigger pull is smooth and fairly light, as would be expected on an AEG, and it returns firmly after release. The selector switch clicks positively into its three settings with ease with no binding or other hiccups. The magazine release does its job just fine; releasing the magazine when pushed. One unique bits about ICS is the uses of the forward assist to decompress the spring. The button is connected to a lever that is attached to the anti-reverse lever, which releases spring tension when pushed. Doing this before storing the gun will prevent gearbox strain and spring degradation  from leaving the spring compressed. Why more AEG manufacturers don't do similar systems is beyond me (aside from my assumption of ICS having their design trademarked.)

    The grip is a normal plastic M4 grip, and has some fairly visible seam lines, but is far from uncomfortable . The motor base is not ventilated, but features a flat head motor height adjustment screw.


    Grip


    Motor plate

    The outer barrel assembly is fully metal, and is extremely solid for a plastic bodied gun. The delta ring assembly appears to be compatible with normal AEG handguards and RIS systems. The flash hider is metal and only has the very tip painted orange. There are 14mm- threads underneath for attaching different flashhiders or mock silencers.

    The handguards themselves are plastic, and feel a hair on the cheap side. They stay together quite well and don't move around too much, but the actual plastic blend used feels kind of light and thin.

    The front sight/gas block assembly is metal and is attached very solidly to the barrel. There is a side mounted front sling mount, also metal, which can be switched to work for left or right handed operators.


    Sling mount

    The sights themselves are metal and are fully adjustable for windage and elevation. The rear is mounted into a removable carry handle, which is made of plastic and is attached via two metal thumbscrews. The 20mm rail underneath is made of metal secured to the plastic receiver.

    There's really not much more that I could ask for personally from a plastic bodied AR replica, externally at least, but the review is young, and there is much to discover with this gun.

    Trademarks:
    There are, unfortunately, no “real” manufacturer trademarks on the gun; instead ICS opted to just put their logo on the side. There is a serial number, but I don't believe they are unique to each gun.


    Main trades


    Secondary trades

    There is one last ICS trademark hidden on the inner portion of the trigger guard:



    Magazines:
    The gun includes two plastic “Thermold” style high capacity magazines, and it is compatible with Tokyo Marui compatible magazines as well. The included mags click in solidly with a minimum of wobble, although some is still present like most other AR replicas. The magazines seem to hold more than the normal 300 rounds that most AR mags hold, but not as many as the longer metal M4 mags made by ICS. I may do an accurate count of the capacity, but only if I really feel like it. The mags feed well, as can be expected from a high end manufacturer.

    Performance:

    Internals:
    The Sportline M4 series features the same tried and true split V2 gearbox setup, of which I am certainly no expert. There are multiple threads on the boards about them, so I won’t bore you with the gory details, but I will go over some highlights.

    You access the gearbox by first decompressing the spring by pushing the forward assist button, then remove the rear receiver pin by simply tapping it out with a tool of some sort. I have a blunt punch that’s the right size, and it works well for me. After punching that pin out, the receiver will tilt forwards, like a real M4, and you can slide the upper portion of the gearbox right out. This makes spring and cylinder changes a breeze.

    The upper gearbox is easily opened up, exposing an assortment of well greased parts, including a plastic piston with non-ported piston head, plastic cylinder head, plastic spring guide, and ported cylinder. The air seal is very good, even with a non-ported piston head.



     
    Upper gearbox





    Various upper gearbox parts

    This gun uses the Turbo 3000 motor, which is, overall, a good motor. It seems to pull the stock spring with ease and doesn’t get too hot while operating at stock power levels. It uses normal long type AEG motors, so feel free to upgrade to your heart’s content.



     

    Modifications:
    It’s an M4. I really don’t need to say anymore do I?

    I will, however, list the problem spots that you’ll run into, being that it’s an ICS:
    1. Stock attachment is different, so you won’t be able to mount non-ICS stocks without modifying the stock attachment point.
    2. Hop-up is different then normal TM compatible hop-ups. You can use normal buckings and nubs in it, but if you want to switch to a normal TM style hop-up you must modify it to fit.
    3. Standard TM compatible metal bodies will not fit.

    Other then that, you should be good to go to crank this thing into the M4 of your dreams.

    Pros:
    Price to Quality ratio is astounding
    Strong split V2 gearbox
    Great shimming, wiring, etc…
    Plastic body quite strong
    Spring decompression button

    Cons:
    ICS’ normal use of some non-compatible parts
    No battery/charger (normally not an issue, but this is aimed at entry level players who like “ready to run” packages)
    Non ported piston head, plastic spring guide

    Overall:
    Well, I’ve never been a fan of ICS guns personally, but this is a good gun for people who may be apprehensive about them to ease into seeing the ICS side of things. It certainly helped me see the light. They really do build some pretty innovative stuff, and the addition of “Sportline” models into their lineup makes them available to the masses. All in all, it’s a quality piece of equipment for an affordable price.

    Use & Function of Forward Assist Knob

    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.
