Today we will be taking a closer look at the T8 Noveske N4. This rifle has generated a lot of buzz in the airsoft community, and for good reason.  EMG T8 Noveske N4 one of the first fully pre-upgraded rifles based on the MWS system to hit the airsoft market.

History Of  Noveske

Noveske Rifleworks is a company founded by the late John Noveske, who was an avid shooter and firearms enthusiast. In 2001, John started his own business building rifles, and the company quickly gained a reputation for producing high-quality, precision rifles for the military, law enforcement, and civilian markets. The Noveske T8 N4 is the airsoft version of their popular real-steel rifle. It's built to the same standards as the real thing, with high-quality materials and attention to detail.

Trigger Box And Bolt

Inside each T8 N4 you will find their T8 steel trigger box and bolt set which is made by T8 themselves. The trigger is very snappy and has a very noticeable wall. Also, this trigger box has a very unique feature. You can adjust your trigger pull! This is mostly unheard of for GBBR’s.

The bolt is also well made and feels amazing when shooting due to the bolt being made of steel and being matched with their T8 nozzle. Its also important to note that the T8 trigger box and bolt set is different To TM/MWS systems as they redesigned it for a more realistic trigger pull and simplified bolt stop that does not implement the ZET system.

Hop Up And Inner Barrel

Now, an interesting feature about the Noveske T8 N4 is the quick detach hop up and Inner barrel. The hop up unit has a new flat style adjustment dial that does away with the standard wheel style hop that we see on the Toyko Marui mws system, which makes it easy to adjust and fine-tune with a flathead screwdriver. The inner barrel is also quick detach. This makes it easy to swap out barrels and experiment with different lengths and types of barrels, allowing you to customize the rifle to your liking. It's a feature that is not often found in airsoft guns, so it's a nice addition to the Noveske T8 N4.

Adjustable Trigger

Another Feature the T8 N4 comes with is an adjustable trigger. Which means you can fine-tune it to your preferences for a more responsive and accurate trigger pull. This is a feature that is often not included or is overlooked in airsoft guns, but it can really make a difference in your game play and make the N4 unique to each user. It is very simple to adjust, just take down the N4 and you will see the point on the trigger box where to adjust with a hex key.


The T8 N4 is incredibly snappy to shoot. The heavy recoil is incredibly satisfying and makes it feel like each shot packs a punch. Plus, the bolt lock works perfectly, so you never have to worry about dry firing once you're out of ammo. Being able to shoot fast on semi with other mws systems sometimes makes you feel like the system is slowing you down. However, with this, it's super easy to get short, fast bursts of semi-fire with ease.


The Noveske T8 N4 is fully licensed by EMG with Noveske Rifleworks, and the trademarks and markings are accurate and well-done. It's always nice to have a replica that looks and feels like the real thing, and the Noveske T8 N4 definitely delivers in that regard. You can see all over the N4 the great detail that has been put into this. With the .300 Blackout written on the barrel and dust cover even down to the Noveske logos on the take down pins.

Lancer Magazine

The magazine you get with the N4 is the L5AWM 300BLK Magazine. Not only did EMG get the license to Noveske, but to Lancer Systems too. That means we get this beautiful looking black transparent mag. This has the correct Lancer markings as well as its transparent shell to allow us to see the dummy rounds inside. Now, the rounds are just a print inside of the magazine which is to be expected, but they still manage to look great.

Build quality

The rifle is very well made, with no movement in the upper and lower receiver. The fit and finish is top-notch, and the rifle feels solid and durable in your hands. You can tell that a lot of care and attention to detail went into the design and production of this airsoft replica. The feel of the build quality is excellent with a smooth finish on the receiver and rail. Also, to note that the N4 isn't cerakoted, But it still feels like your getting quality finish on it and it’s just a joy to have in your hands.

Some Things To Note About The T8 N4

Now, there are some downsides of the Noveske T8 N4 and we will list a few here.

The first downside is that you can't use Tokyo Marui original magazines or other 3rd party magazines. This can be a bit of a hassle if you already have a lot of 3rd party or Tokyo Marui magazines, but it's not a deal-breaker by any means. To use 3rd party or Tokyo Marui original magazines you will have to change the feed lips on the magazine to the T8 brand ones. Conveniently T8 sells there T8 feed lips in packs of five for a reasonable price. T8 also sells their own brand magazines which are one of the best on the market.

 The second downside is the paint wearing away around the mag well. This is a common issue with many airsoft guns, but it's still worth mentioning. Over time, the paint on the mag well can wear away due to friction and contact with magazines. It's not a huge issue, but it can affect the appearance of the rifle over time.

The third downside is that the steel trigger box and bolt are priority. This means that if you want to upgrade the rifle, you'll need to replace the trigger box and bolt before anything else as these two parts are only compatible with each other. However, you can change the trigger box and bolt to something that is not T8 and it will work fine. In the N4 While this may not be a major issue for some players, it's important to keep in mind if you're planning on upgrading your Noveske T8 N4 in the future.

The fourth  and final downside is that some of the markings say "airsoft only," which takes away from the overall look and realism of the rifle. While it's understandable that airsoft replicas need to have certain markings to comply with regulations, it's always a bit disappointing when the markings detract from the overall aesthetic of the gun.


In conclusion, the Noveske T8 N4 is an excellent airsoft replica that delivers on quality, accuracy, and attention to detail. The QD hop up, quick-detachable inner barrel, adjustable trigger, correct markings, and build quality all make it a great option for airsoft players who are looking for a high-end rifle that can perform well on the field.

While there are a few downsides to keep in mind, such as the inability to use Tokyo Marui magazines and the wear and tear on the paint around the mag well, these are relatively minor issues that are outweighed by the rifle's many strengths.

Overall, we highly recommend the Noveske T8 N4 to airsoft players who are looking for a top-quality replica that can perform well and look great on the field.
