ARES M4 X-CLASS MODEL 9!

Hey friends!


Welcome back to the blog. We’re back at it with the reviews and in this one, we’ll be looking at the Ares M4 X-Class Model 9 Rifle that landed at Extreme Airsoft just a few weeks ago. Let’s check it out and get it on the range!


The Ares M4 X-Class Model 9 Rifle is constructed from Aluminium Alloy, Nylon Fibre and metal. At the front of this premium AEG we have a steel Flash Hider (14mm CW) that leads onto an M-LOK Geissele style rail system and a Radian arms style receiver. It has a full-length Picatinny top rail so players can accessorise their rifles with sights, scopes and other accessories such as a PEQ box. Included in the box is a set of removable full-metal flip sights for this rail. It features the slim Ares slim pistol grip which is designed for comfort and grip. At the rear of the rifle, we have an Amoeba Pro stock that houses the battery compartment and has multiple sling points. This rifle is available in either black or bronze and in multiple barrel lengths.





The Ares M4 X-Class Model 9 Rifle comes in an understated but cleanly presented box and is securely packaged. On removing it from the box, you can immediately feel that it has a good weight to it but it isn’t too burdensome. The specs sheet says it weighs in at 2.6kg which would be a comfortable weight to skirmish. The construction feels sound - there’s no wobble and the materials feel of good quality. The Geissele style M-LOK rail particularly adds a feel of luxury to this AEG. It has fully ambidextrous controls including an ambidextrous safety, mag release and bolt release meaning it is suitable for both left and right-handed shooters. It has the standard safe/semi and full-auto firing modes.


Internally, we have an E.F.C.S metal reinforced gearbox with mosfet system (that is programmable), Ares Slim High Torque Motor, a quick spring change system and an adjustable hop-up. It is rear-wired to Deans (or T-Plug).


Now to the range test, how did it perform? It chonographed in at a respectable 330 FPS on a 0.20g BB with a pretty average rate of fire and it was quite consistent. It fires with no issues on both semi-auto and full-auto and performs much better with an 11.1v LiPo as opposed to a 7.4v - it has a crisper trigger response and sounds punchier. You can check out my range test on TikTok here!



In the box, you get the Ares M4 X-Class Model 9 Rifle (AR-091E – Black), a 140-round Mid-Cap Magazine, a Cleaning Rod and a Feeding Tube. From Extreme Airsoft, this replica will set you back £389.99 (remember you can always save 5% with the code ‘femmefatale21’). I think it performs really nicely, especially on an 11.1v Lipo - it’s consistent and punchy, but it’s the aesthetics that really steal the show here. The Radian Arms style receiver and the Giessele style M-LOK rail have great finishes and make it look a lot more expensive than it is. Overall, I think this is a really stunning AEG that performs on the range. I would love to take this out to a game day.
