M41A Pulse Rifle replica (SW-11B)
The replica of a fiction M41A Pulse Rifle that is a standard issue of the Colonial Marines and simultaneously being and of the iconic weapons of the science-fiction genre – of course next to the Han Solo’s blaster and the Space Marines’ bolter. The original of this rifle was shows in the movie “Aliens” in 1986 which was the second part of the saga about Ellen Ripley’s struggles with the aliens living cavernous depths of space. Momentarily the weapon dominated the imagination of every science fiction fan loving the military sector and weapon branch.
The M41A Pulse Rifle replica was built on the base of a combat-proven SW-05 model made by the Snow Wolf company. This allowed easy access to the replica for every “Aliens” series fan or anyone loving science-fiction in general. So far, the construction of the M41A required enormous funds – you needed to buy a M1A1 replica and then you had to mount the very expensive conversion all by yourself. Now, thanks to introducing the new ready product to the market, it is possible to achieve an even better effect with a smaller amount of money.
The replica was made of a homogenous zinc and aluminum alloy and of a durable polymer plastic. Thanks to the foldable stock and cylindrical shape, the operation of the replica is rather comfortable ( taking into consideration the enormous size of the replica ).
The replica is equipped with a functional firing counter, counting down from 95 to 0. It is vital to zero the counter while the count begins again only after taking out the old magazine and replacing is with a new one.
The replica is fed with standard short SW-05 magazines that hold 190 BB pellets. You need to remember that other magazines do not fit the SW-05 replica. The magazines are loaded with the use of internal cartridges – in order to change the magazine it is necessary to open the lower flap securing the magazine’s well.
The replica has a 270mm long inner barrel and a pneumatic mechanism giving the muzzle velocity of about 360 FPS. The replica is powered with a stick type battery that is located in the grenade launcher dummy that is in the front under the barrel.
This surely isn’t a typical replica for weekend games, yet bearing in mind its symbolic, uniqueness and pure fun that the shooting the replica gives on airsoft events it will surely find recognition in the eyes of many science-fiction fans.
The set includes:
- the M41A replica,
- the magazine,
- a battery,
- a charger,
M41A Pulse Rifle
It is the spped of bb, while its leaving the innerbarrel of replica. This speed is measured in FPS (Feet Per Second).
1 FPS = 0,3 m/s
1 J = 99 m/s
1 J = 326,7 FPS
|Propulsion / Powered by:|
Indications v2, v3, v6 does not mean the level of advance, but only shape of gearbox skeleton which was used and selected by the manufacturer depending on the capabilities of the body of the replica. For example, a models of the M4/M16 family, MP5, have a v2 gearbox, while the AK family have gearbox v3.

Metal + plastic
The length of the replca is measured between the two most distant points of each other. Different models have several of these values, because of its design allows to increase or decrease it length (eg. folding stock or extended flash hider).
680 / 780
|Inner barrel length [mm]:|
This is a value that includes the weight of the replica, magazine and other accessories that are include in set without a battery, charger, cleaning rod, etc., etc.
|Battery Voltage [V]:|
|Battery Capacity [mAh]:|
Battery capacity determines the time, which it accumulated enough energy to work gearbox. The greater capacity, then replica will shoot longer.
rechargeable battery is characterized by high efficiency
current-carrying capacity, but there are disruptive effect on memory.
Should be unloaded and loaded in the full cycle, ie, it is recommended
to fully discharge, and after unloading must charge the battery
immediately without leaving it for a long time in a discharged state.
|Magazine capacity [pcs]:|
Hop-Up system is used for overclocking bb during the shot (putting it in rotation), through which, it extends its flight path. Acting laws of physics make that bb lift up, while the gravitational force take it down. Appropriate adjustment of Hop-Up, will compensate for these two factors, which result in long and straight flight for longer distance and be greater focus shot (to improve accuracy).
Blow back is a simulation system of the cocking lever - it imitates the work of it as the equivalent sharp. This system raises the realism and adds a lot more experience during shooting.
