Daniel Defense® MK18 SA-E26 EDGE™ Carbine Replica
EDGE ™ is a series of Specna Arms replicas that combines a range of innovative solutions and technologies difficult to find in other replicas on currently the market. The series focuses on a very good external build, solutions increasing the replica's versatility, longevity, facilitating failure diagnostics, and susceptibility to power tuning. Straight out of the box you will get a replica in which you won’t have to make any kind of modifications, unless you want to - which will be remarkably simple.
The replica was manufactured in cooperation with the American EMG Arms brand. The replica has licensed Daniel Defense® markings - a firearms manufacturer from the USA, which since 2002 has specialized in providing various variants of the AR15 and accessories, also on special orders of USSOCOM.
Each element of the replica was carefully made and fitted with great attention to every detail, in addition to the finish of the body,Nano Coating was used to prevent wear and tear. The body features deeply engraved Rock River Arms markings and an individual serial number with an additional hologram. Some of the more noteworthy details include the QD pistol grip, providing easy and quick access to the engine without the need for tools, and a double-sided tactical sling mounting eye.
The barrel of the replica is ended with a muzzle device mounted on a 14mm CCW thread. Folding sights were placed on the back of the replica.
The replica uses a powerful and efficient High Torque motor equipped with powerful neodymium magnets. The motor has 22TPA (Turn Per Arm) winding and can handle without issue springs more powerful than the one included in the set.
ASTER™ system is the younger brother of a well-known TITAN™ unit. This fourth generation of AEG control systems was designed with a majority of electric replicas equipped with gearbox V2 in mind, also those that undergo demanding tuning. ASTER™ allows to reach maximum durability whilst retaining the attractive price. This system is characteristic for its uniquely beneficial price to efficiency ratio.
Thanks to ASTER™, you can improve your replica by replacing the connectors with an advanced controller equipped with innovative optical sensors, which offers up to 240 trigger sensitivity settings. Trigger rapid reaction and many other useful functions will enable you to get an edge over opponents on the airsoft battlefield. An intelligent fuse protects the battery, the motor and the controller, even from a reverse connection of the battery. This function, along with optical sensors, makes ASTER™ the most durable drop-in type system available on the market.
The replica has a build in 6.03 mm diameter internal precision barrel, which will ensure perfect accuracy and precision of shots. A new type of rotary Hop-Up chamber is compatible with the precision barrel, which allows for more precise and stable adjustment of the BB’s precision and accuracy.
One of the replica’s features is a quick spring change system, ESA ™. The system allows for a quick and efficient adjustment of the replica's power to the requirements in the field of play, without the need of tool usage - just unscrew the stock guide to reveal the access to the spring, without having to remove or disassemble the gearbox.
The advantages of the ESA™ system cannot be overestimated. In the light of the arrangements existing within the airsoft environments, this system guarantees the user a considerable amount of possibilities and a lot of freedom. The ESA ™ system allows you to quickly, with little to no effort change the main spring, and thus adjust the muzzle velocity of the replica to the requirements of the game organizer. This guarantees an ideal compromise between the effectiveness of firing your shots and your own safety and the safety of other players. The whole set also includes a second M90 main spring, which is perfect for indoor games.
The heart of the replica is the ORION gearbox based on a reinforced chassis and equipped with the main spring release function. The replica straight out of the box has a number of very high-quality parts, thanks to which it maintains a very good work culture and is prepared for further tuning. ORION Gearbox is made to work with M140 springs. Inside the replica there are such elements as:
- reinforced polymer piston.
- aluminum, sealed nozzle
- aluminum, double sealed cylinder head
- aluminum, double sealed piston head with bearings
- a spring guide with bearings
- a set of steel gears
- 8mm ball bearings
The box with the replica includes two S-MAG mid-cap magazines with a capacity of 125 BB’s each. The S-MAG is an exclusive polymer magazine designed by Specna Arms. The characteristic texture of the Specna Arms logo on the magazines is something noteworthy. S-mag ensures trouble-free feeding of BB’s, 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
- Deans / small Tamiya adapter
- user manual
- QC certificate
- GATE X-ASR ™ diagnostic card
- vertical grip
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.

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
