EL-104 (Gen.2) (Vintage Custom) Carbine Replica
GF Custom Division is an idea born in the heads of the Gunfire airsoft team. We want to offer you the highest-quality replicas modified and configured by our team using the best, tested parts and accessories. No element of the replica is there for no reason - these are exactly the kind of configurations that we would like to use in the field. In the custom work on replicas helps our many-year airsoft experience and it can be easily summed up that GF Custom Division is a project created in 100% by players for players.
This time the subject of our interesting and original customization is the EL-104 (Gen. 2) replica by a known and well-liked for its solid work E&L company!
EL-104 replica has undergone professional aging treatments that have provided it with a unique and individual character. The replica is a combination of steel and durable polymer. All steel elements that the majority of the replica consists of as well as polymer elements of the replica: the stock, pistol grip and barrel panels have been subjected to aging. Part of the original oxidization has been professionally rubbed off revealing beautiful, raw steel that the replica was made of. The process included also the steel magazine - the entirety looks exceptionally original.
GF Custom Division desired to achieve an aged effect so that the replica appears as if it endured years of difficult service and not as if it came straight from an assembly line - it worked out great!
The replica will look great on a wall display as well as in the field. Of course, we have also taken care of the adequate coverage of the replica’s surface in order to minimize the risk of rusting of steel elements.
E&L Airsoft is a new quality on the airsoft replica market. The manufacturer has decided to create replicas that will resemble live firearm originals in terms of material quality and how well parts are aligned together as much as possible and made strides in that direction as far as possible - by launching the production in the very same factory that manufactures live firearms! The replicas were made using the same materials as in the originals: steel, hand-finished wood elements or high-quality polymer. Also, some of the external parts are identical to those of the original and come off the very same production line.
This allowed E&L to significantly move ahead of its competition among the manufacturers from behind the eastern border. It can compete (and win!) with the best brands on the market - also when it comes to prices. Its quality and specification make it not only a beautiful wall decoration but also a very effective field replica.
Outside, a maximum amount of elements that is possible in a replica was made in a 1:1 scale in comparison to the original, according to the military specification. This means that it is possible to change parts between the replica and its live firearm counterpart! This concerns, among others, the front cradle, gas pipe cap, the gas pipe itself, cleaning rod and iron sights. Little to none other manufacturers offer such possibilities.
Steel elements have undergone anodizing, which makes their appearance even more realistic, also sometimes the process of abrasion of the anodizing gives a much better effect than in the case of a painted or lacquered replicas.
A great effort was also made to make the replica’s weight as close to that of the original as possible. It is heavy and additionally, a correct balance is guaranteed by a steel, external barrel. Worth noting is without a doubt the option of partial disassembly of the replica, like its live firearm counterpart - without the need for tools. Everything is based on pins and levers. The manufacturer has taken care of the smallest details in order to bring the product as close to the original as possible.
Both the handguard and the gas pipe cap were made from black polymer.
Elements made from the same material also include: the stock with a metal stock pad. It is a full stock, foldable to the left side of the stock.
“104” models are characteristic for their short barrel, which makes the replica more compact. At its end is a special flash hider and a gas pipe angle joint integrated with the rear sight.
On the left side of the receiver is a characteristic for this construction “dovetail joint” side mounting rail. It is compatible only with special, dedicated optical sights (also original ones, intended for live firearms) or mounts equipped with a RIS rail, onto which any optical sight of choosing can be later mounted.
All E&L replicas are covered with a thick, technical oil, which safeguards the product during transport against humidity and other possible impurities. A mix of oil, steel and lacquered wood emits a unique smell that is well-known to people having contact with firearms.
The battery is located beneath the dust cover. The cover is held by a single latch, which allows for a rapid disassembly and a change of the power source at any moment.
Also internally the product appears superb. E&L engineers have collected from the market the best solutions and also added some of their own. The pneumatic system consists of a set of a silent piston and cylinder heads, which prolongs the lifetime of the system and provides a better absorption. The replica has a ball-bearing spring guide and the sector gear has an enlarged delayer clip. It provides the BB with more time to be introduced into the chamber, which is especially important when dealing with configurations with a high rate of fire. A high accuracy and tight cone of fire provide the implemented internal barrel with a diameter of 6.04 mm.
What is Generation 2 characteristic for?
Generation 2 replicas are equipped with a new standard gearbox! Most importantly, it received a rapid spring exchange system - Quick Spring Release. It allows for a quick adaptation of the replica’s power to the needs of the User via the main spring exchange without the need to unscrew the gearbox and, as a result, the need to have the access to a workshop or special tools. Once the gearbox has been taken out of the replica’s body, the process of spring exchange lasts literally mere seconds thanks to a special construction of the frame and the guide.
Generation 2 has a perfected, even more durable gearbox, which in comparison with previous models contains parts that have been replaced with new ones, among others: the frame, gears, cylinder, nozzle, spring guide and wiring. The new solutions guarantee a better reliability, higher ROF and a smaller energy drain.
What components exactly will we find inside E&L Gen 2?

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.

|Diameter of bearings in GB [mm]:|
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.
