EL-104 PMC-C assault rifle replica
E&L Airsoft is a new quality on the airsoft market. The manufacturer has set himself the task of creating replicas with the highest possible quality of materials and perfect fitting, resembling the real steels as close as possible and went in this direction as far as he could - by starting production at the same factory, which produced a firearm!
Therefore E&L's products are made with use of steel, hand finished wood components and high-quality composite and definitely can compete with the best brands on the market - also in price. The quality and performance allow it to be both a beautiful wall decoration as well as very effective skirmish gun. Also, some parts of the exterior are the same as in the original weapon and come off the same production line!
Externally, the maximum possible number of elements was made as a 1:1 copy of the original, fully according to military specifications. This means you can exchange elements between the replica and the real steel! This applies to items such as the front bed, gas pipe, iron sights and cleaning rod. Hardly any other manufacturer offers that.
Steel components have been oxidized, which makes them look even more realistic. Also, the attrition process which takes place over time makes oxidized surfaces look much better than it happens by painted or varnished guns.
Also in terms of weight all was made to ensure realism. The replica is heavy, and a full steel outer barrel ensures proper balance. A notable feature is certainly the possibility of a partial field-stripping of the replica, like it takes place with the a real steel - with no tools required. Everything is based on pins and levers. The manufacturer paid attention to even of the smallest of details to make their product as close a resemblence to the real steel as possible.
The barrel's end is fitted with a special type of flash hider and gas pipe with integrated sights.
The 104-PMC-C is the most „tactical” version E&L has to offer. Even though such modifications have now been long present in the armed forces, they are still controversial among orthodox players, mostly due to the fact that the wooden elements have been removed in order to make the gun more ergonomic and functional, allowing to mount tactical accessories usually seen on M4/M16 type guns. A full metal RIS conversion with medium-long rails has been put onto the front of the gun in place of the traditional wooden foregrip. This allows a wide variety of accessories to be added to the gun, starting with optical devices through grips and flashlights up to laser target markers.
The replica is equipped with a LMT type buttstok ending with a rubber pad. It's regulated, allowing it to be adjusted to the shooters built and individual preferences. A SAW type pistol grip is made of polymer, its shape allowing for a more comfortable and firm hold on the replica.
The left side of the receiver is equipped with a dovetail mount, suitable for the dedicated optical sights (including the original, designed for a firearm), as well as mounts allowing transition to RIS standard used as base for mounting of virtually any type of optics.
Straight from the box, the replica is secured in a protective plastic packaging. Both the inside of the pack and the rifle are covered with dense technical oil, which protects the product against moisture and other possible contaminants. A mix of oil, steel and polymer produces a unique smell that is familiar to anyone handling real steel firearms.
The product looks just as great on the inside. E&L engineers have chosen the best solutions among those already available on the market and added some of their own. A reinforced ver.3 gearbox is driven by a High Torque motor with neodymium magnets. An interesting idea is the structure of the bearing - the first two gears are mounted on ball bearings while the piston gear uses plain bearings. On the one hand, it allows you to work with less resistance from gears that make the most cycles, on the other hand reduces the risk of failure on the piston gear which is subjected to the greatest tension.
On most of its length, the piston is devoid of the upper rail, which minimally affect the stability of its operation, but decreases friction greatly. These two solutions guarantee a smooth work of the gun, greater ROF and lower energy consumption. The replica's battery is located under the lid of the receiver. The cover is mounted on a latch, which allows its rapid removal and replacement of the power source at any time.
The pneumatic system comprises of a silent piston and cylinder head, which allows better amortization and thus - a greater durability. The spring guide is ewuipped with bearings while the piston gear is equipped with a larger delayer. This gives the BB more time roll into the chamber, which is especially important in configurations to ensure a high rate of fire.
High accuracy and focus of shots is assured by a pre-installed 6.04 mm tightbore.
Attention to the smallest detail is also expressed in the individually printed and hand-filled quality certificate. Attached to each replica, it includes the gun's serial number, name, and quality check stamps: quality of the exterior, functionality and content of the package. There you will also find a table showing the results of five consecutive shots measured on the chronograph, expressed in both meters per second as well as in joules.
The replica comes with a mid-cap magazine made of steel, with a capacity of 150 BBs.
Caution: the set does not include a battery nor a charger.
What are the 2.0 Version features?
Models form 2.0 series have greater muzzle velocity depending on a model. What's important, E&L improved the quality of hop-up chambers. Both new chambers and gearbox frames were painted in matt black colour.
New models are available in an elegant and practical box lined with hard foam. Such a solution will protect and stabilize the replica during transport.
Each model has an oiler in the set and models with a full stock have been equipped with a cleaning kit, exactly the same as the one dedicated to firearms.

Magazines: most types of LCT and MAG magazines fits well to the replica, certain types of CM, Boyi, JG magazines may require slight modifications.
Plastic + steel
|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.
|Type of fire:|
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).
|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.
|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.
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.
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
