More and more aftermarket parts for the Tokyo Marui SOPMOD M4 recoil AEG are dripping onto the market and now Dytac brings us a broad variety of outer barrel lengths in silver and black.
Many other external parts can add to the tactical effectiveness of your weapon as well as just making it look good but it is barrel length that forms the backbone of your weapons aesthetic. With an M4 receiver, it is the difference in barrel length that defines it as a rifle, carbine, CQB assault weapon or an SBR (short barreled rifle).
14.5 inches is standard M4A1 length, the same length as a Marui M4 SOPMOD standard model stock barrel. What is the point in switching?
Well, the gas block on this model is low profile which lets it slip inside RAS front kits better and generally looks smoother and cooler. it also allows you to do away with the front fixed sight (in favor of a rail attach front iron sight perhaps).
This model is also available in both black and silver versions, just in case you want to spice up those colors.
