Most airsoft battles take place in close quarters which is what the m4 was made for. Unlike the m16 which was made for longer ranges

The M16 assault rifle has a greater range than the M4 carbine as a result of its 20-inch barrel, compared with 14.5 for the M4. The M16 can hit an area target out to 800 meters while the M4 is effective to 600 meters.

What is best the M16 or M4?

Both guns are very excellent guns, but it just depends on the situation.

Overall, I think the m16 is better, but that's just my opinion. Besides, there are better guns than the m16 series such as the m468 with its heavier round, and the scar with its interchangability between the 556 round and the 762 round.
