Daniel Defense® MK18 SA-E19 EDGE™ Carbine Replica
EDGE™ is a line of replicas by Specna Arms that combines an array of solutions and technologies hard to find in other replicas on the market. It is a series that puts stress on very good craftsmanship of the exterior, solutions that improve upon the versatility of the replica, prolong its lifetime, simplify the diagnostics of a malfunction as well as facilitate the possibility of a power tuning. Straight out of the box you get a replica that does not require any modification, however, if needed - they will be extremely simple.
The replica was manufactured in cooperation with EMG Arms brand. The carbine has engraved licensed markings of Daniel Defense® - a firearms manufacturer from the USA, which since 2002 specializes in providing various variants of the AR15 and accessories, also on special requests by USSOCOM.
Every element of the replica had been made and fitted with the utmost care for every detail. In addition, the body features a Nano Coating finish that prevents scratches. The body also bears individual serial number further authenticated by an additional hologram as well as a double-sided tactical sling swivel.
SA-E19 carbine replica is equipped with an RIS 22 mm handguard. The barrel features a standard muzzle device on a 14 mm CCW thread. The top of the replica features flip-up iron sights.
The carbine features a factory-fitted MOSFET X-ASR module by Polish GATE. It is an unprecedented cooperation between a Polish manufacturer and a factory known for its airsoft replicas. The highest-quality MOSFET X-ASR looks after the safety of the replica components, improves the trigger reaction and extends the lifetime of electronics and the battery. It will also enable diagnosing basic malfunctions inside the replica thanks to integrated status diodes.
The replica features an internal precision barrel with 6.03 mm in diameter that provides high accuracy and repeatability of fired shots. The barrel works in tandem with a new type of a Hop-Up rotary chamber that allows for a very precise and stable adjustment of the BB spin.
The replica features an ESA™ Quick Spring Change System. Due to that system, it is possible to rapidly and quickly adapt the power of the replica to the conditions expected on the playing field without the necessity to have the access to a workshop or a set of special tools - all that is required is to remove the stock tube in order to gain access to the spring so that it can be removed without having to pull out or disassemble the gearbox.
The advantages of the ESA™ system are hard to overstate. In the light of current internal regulations inside various groups, the system guarantees the User a varied set of possibilities and plenty of freedom. ESA™ system allows with a minimal amount of time to exchange the main spring, thus to customize the muzzle velocity towards the area of the game in such a way so as to guarantee an ideal compromise between the effectiveness of fire and the safety for the User himself as well as other participants. Inside the box, along with the replica, is another M90 main spring that is excellent for indoor operations.
The heart of the replica consists of the ORION gearbox based on a reinforced frame and equipped with the function of the main spring release. The replica features an array of high-grade parts right out of the box, which makes it characteristic for its reliability and preparedness for further tuning. ORION gearbox is ready for cooperation with M140 springs. Inside, there are elements such as:
- reinforced polymer piston with a full, steel jaw
- aluminum, air-sealed nozzle
- aluminum, double air-sealed cylinder head
- aluminum, double air-sealed piston head with bearings
- bearing-mounted spring guide
- set of steel gears
- 8 mm ball bearings
The box, apart from the replica, includes two Mid-Cap S-MAG magazines with a capacity of 125 BBs each. S-MAG is an exclusive polymer magazine designed by Specna Arms. Noteworthy is the characteristic texture comprised of Specna Arms logos. S-MAG facilitates a seamless feeding of BBs even at high ROF.
The set does not include a battery or a charger.
The set includes:
- 2 x S-MAG Mid-Cap magazine
- additional M90 main spring
- RIS rail vertical grip
- User’s manual
- QC certificate
- EMG / Daniel Defense certificate
- GATE X-ASR diagnostics card
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.

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.
|Product weight [g]|
|Muzzle velocity [FPS]|
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
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.
Gearbox v2 modified
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).
