I have a question other then the external what are the differences between the M4 and M16?  I know the M16 has a M130 equivalent spring, and from what I hear a better piston is this true, and are there any other difference between them? If there are when will these parts be available in the pro shop. I want M16 but my wallet says otherwise, I was hoping to just upgrade my M4 for now and when me and my wallet on on better terms I plan on getting that M16

Both M4 and M16 have the same internal.  Just different spring.

I dont know about the cylinders, but I do know that the KM-16 has a longer inner barrel, and therefore longer effective range.

Also the M16 is wired to the back and the M4 is wired to the front.

And for the cylinder, Allizard probably knows what type it has, but he has said

according to a guide on RedWolf.  509mm is the max.  I wouldn't call it the gospel though.
so it could be the same as the M4?
