SR16 AEG replica
The replica which is designed by the WE company and which introduces a number of innovatory technical solutions and which sets a new standard among the AEG type airsoft replicas.
Just like it takes places in the case of the previous models of this company, the replica is made of a homogenous alloy of zinc and aluminum, steel and high quality nylon plastic material. It characterizes itself with the perfect fitting of parts and the high aesthetic level of make. You will not find any lose parts in the replica’s construction – the whole seems to be a solid homogenous piece.
The structurally reinforced nylon which was used in the creation of the front grip, which also holds the battery, the pistol grip and the stock presents itself perfectly among the products of the other manufacturers and similar price level – both ,if it comes to the visual aspect and the durability against mechanical damage
The coloristic of the metal elements – of the body, the barrel, the stock’s pipe and also the other minor metal elements – leaves nothing more to be desired.
The inner construction itself is a compromise between innovation and functionality. The main spring release lever which is connected with the firing mode selector lever is on of the interesting and characteristic modifications. Whenever one puts the firing mode to SAFE, the spring is released thanks to which there are no unnecessary frictions inside of the gearbox. This allows to significantly extend the lifespan of the mechanical elements and also to preserve the main spring’s power.
The elements of the pneumatic unit itself are also made with the highest attention to details. The homogenous polycarbonate Hop-Up chamber fulfills its role perfectly: the hop-up adjustment is done just like in any standard replica of this kind – we gain access to the adjustment system after pulling the cocking handle. It is worth mentioning that the bolt carrier’s dummy which covers the adjustment system goes back to its original position after pushing the bolt catch lever.
The reinforced gearbox which is built on 8mm bearings hides in itself metal thread-wheels and a light polycarbonate piston which has got a rather original head which thanks to its built allows for a better placing and directing of the air stream. It is done by equipped the head with a number of directional intakes. The cylinder’s head is equipped with a full sealing which additionally servers as amortization for the cylinder’s head. The whole is powered by an increased torque motor and an irregular main spring.
Thanks to its basic muzzle velocity of about 400 FPS, the replica is perfect to be used in middle distances. Nevertheless, thanks to the application of the inner parts of the highest quality it is possible to easily and effectively power tune up the replica.
The replica is fully prepared to operate with the LiPo and LiFe batteries and it is also equipped with a safety fuse and a small Tamiya type plug.
The replica is equipped with a top 22mm RIS rail, a set of front RIS rails and an adjustable stock. There is a carrying handle mounted on the top RIS rail which is equipped with integrated iron aiming sights. It is possible attach any optical and electronic aiming devices when you take the carrying handle of. Thanks to the adjustable stock which is ended with an anti-skid surfaced stock’s foot it is possible to adapt the replica to the built and preferences of the shooter. The default flash-hider is placed on a 14mm counter-clockwise thread what allows to attach a sound suppressor in its place.
There is a spare steel hi-cap type magazine holding 300 BB pellets included in the set with replica.
