The GC16 Predator is an M4 type rifle manufactured by G&G. As you would expect it runs off TM-spec M4 magazines (STANAG, PMAG, EMAG etc) and externally has a Keymod rail system with barrel ending just inside the rail for a streamlined & aggressive look. But as your mother told you, looks aren’t everything…it’s what’s inside that counts. And what’s inside the GC16 Predator is definitely worth noting:
You have the run of the mill 8mm G&G v2 gearbox casing (metal), and usual trio of gears (sector, bevel & spur) as well as G&G’s normal piston & cylinder combo…but where it gets a little more unusual is the trigger; no trigger contacts. Instead you have their patented ETU (electronic trigger unit), which does away with the standard contacts and instead has everything in one easy-to-use block. Oh, and that’s not all. That block is equiped with a MOSFET, so you can quickly & easily change it from semi to burst fire!
Now, back to the more interesting – you have a more stylised receiver complete with ambidextrous magazine release and fire selector, so if you’re left handed there’s no need to feel discriminated against as far as this gun is concerned! The flashhider is removable so you can add on silencers, barrel extensions and tracer units etc – just be sure to watch the diameter inside the rail! Receiver is constructed out of metal, and though still balanced, it adds a nice heft to the gun!
